How Miles Should the oil be Changed? I been Hearing 3000 to 7 500 miles. Thanks for your Help


various manufacturers give various recommendations, anything upto 12 - 15,000 miles but a change every 5-6,000 miles will greatly contribute to engine longevity and smooth running. Less than this interval is unnecessary, there should not be sufficient deterioration of oil to warrant changing it. This is in reference to an average engine in everyday conditions.
I have a 2.2 Honda with 185000 miles on the odometer and it has had regular oil and filter changes around 6000 miles and it pulls very well still.
High performance engines , such as found in super cars or hyper cars might need oil changes far sooner becayse of the pounding it takes but unless you drive a Maserati, Lamborghini, Ferrari etc, you should be fine with the 6000 mile intervalc

I would like to know the interval change of my timing belt on my Jeep Patriot Sport 2.0 2008


I must presume you have verified that you do indeed have a timing belt and not a timing chain. (I'm reasonably certain you have a belt, I think the 2.4L engine uses a chain.) Your owner's manual should specify the replacement interval, typically 60,000 or more commonly 80,000 miles. If you're coming up on the 80,000 mile mark, change it. If you bought it used and it's over 80,000 and you don't know if it's been changed, then change it. If that's an interference motor, it will destroy itself if the belt breaks. When having the timing belt changed (or doing it yourself), it's a good time to change the water pump (even it it's fine....simply because you have access while changing the belt), all hoses and other belts. It just makes sense to do these other things while you are doing (or having done) the considerable disassembly / interference removal required for the timing belt work. Shop around and get the required parts, take everything to a mechanic you trust or take a couple days off work and do it. I don't know you or your level of expertise, so my apologies if I'm preaching to the choir.

Timing Belt. I bought this car used about two years ago with 87k miles on it, it now has about 117k miles on it, when should I change the timing belt on it?


Every 70k miles or so the belt should be replaced. Fairly easy for a mechanic to do and sound like it's due for one

How hard is it to change a timing belt in a 99 chrysler 300m?


It's not a kinde of job that can do every one like change the tire. Change the timing belt can do only impressionist, if something is not properly in place can break the engine that will cost more.
Leave to make this work a impressionist.

I have a 2002 Subaru Legacy GT Limited. At 80,000 miles I had to replace head gasket, timing belt and water pump. Now at 185000 miles the engine seems to be making a lot more noise, more it seems when I...


I'm making a guess that if this is a noise that gets better (but doesn't go away) once the car has warmed up, you probably have one or more tappets that are out of adjustment. I have a feeling that they are hydraulic tappets on this vehicle. You are going to have to either try to trace the offending ones or swap out the lot if they are hydraulic.

I just bought a 1987 BMW 325 6 cylinder with 98,000 miles. I believe it to be the eta (e) or economy engine. The car had the timing belt 2,000 miles ago in 2000, but the car has not been driven since...


belts should be changed every 60,000 miles or 5 years max so it is due a belt anyway.
if the belt does come apart it will do serious damage to the valves , head and pistons.

i would change the water pump at the same time for peace of mind. especially as it will be exposed while doing the belt, and you do not know if the pump is seized/worn.

When should replace the plugs I have 185000 miles eithout changing them yet


Typically modern cars replace there spark plugs around 100,000 miles. As the plugs age (more miles) the gap on the plugs tends to widen. When the gap gets too wide , you walk outside to start your car and it just turns over but refuses to fire up. Some times,if spark plugs are left in the engine for too many miles, they become glued into the head by carbon and corrosion. Worst case scenario , you can not remove them and when you do they damage the threads in the motor head that holds them in. I think if you read your owners manual you will find that you are way over due for replacement. Buy the correct plugs and install them or have them installed and be sure to use Anti-Seize on the threads in case you ever have to do it again.

I have a 2003 Hyundai Elantra. Its Engine is 2.o L (120.5) DOHC MFI 16-valve4 -cyl inline engine. It has 90,000 miles on it. When I bought it, it had 89,000 miles. Should I change the timing belt for this...


Most manufactures recommend changing the Timing belt at around 60,000 miles or 7 years. The have been known to last a lot longer than that but it is cheaper to have it replaced than to risk critical and expensive engine damage if it breaks.

200,000-300,000 miles if you keep up with oil changes and belt changes especially the timing belt this is usually the most important belt if it brakes you'll need a new engine. Change this belt around 80-100,000 miles.
