Absolutely , stay away from dealerships unless you are having free warranty work done.

Testimonial: "Thanks. I've got a couple small-shop options & have always thought that dealerships charge way too much. Can't imagine why a 30K check would cost $650"

When does this vehicle have to have tune up


owners manual should say. but car should see a mechanic every 3-5 thousand miles. that mechanic should look at your mileage and find what the manufacturer recommends being done at that time. if you do your own maintenance and you think 30k is not enough miles on the transmission oil and it still "looks clean" and you reach 150k thinking the same thing. dont call the car bad names when you are walking. save fifty bucks to spend 3-5k later on a new tranny it just doesnt make sense. if you do your own maintenance look up for that specific mileage what needs to be done. just do it. it is not too much when u do it yourself. the dealer cost money. a tune up is really not supposed to be done all at once. tune ups where more from the 50s, 60s, 70s, nowadays we use recommended service intervals. 5k service - oil and filter 10 service- oil and filter, air filter, 15k service- oil and filter, fuel filter etc 20 oil filter air 25 oil filter coolant power steering oil 30 oil filter, fuel, trans
just a example it is way off. but just treat your car right. generally less than 300 a year and car will last forever.

I have 86,000 miles on my 1993 240 Classic. What is the maintenance schedule and what should be done at this time?


Most car dealers recommend maintenance services at 30K, 60K, 90K and so on. The 30K service is mainly focused in inspection of the systems and replace of the fuel filter.
The 60K is expensive for cars with timing belt. The coolant, transmission oil and filter, and the brake fluid has to be changed. The air filter and spark plugs has to be replaced at this time too.
Most costly is the replacement of the timing belt. Volvo recommends for Volvo 240, changing the timing belt every 50,000 miles. Needless to say, they are pretty religious about this now.
The B20, B21, B23, and B230 engines are non-interference engines, meaning that the camshaft can be rotated independently of the crankshaft and no damage will result to the engine. That is, if the timing belt breaks, the valves will not hit the pistons; the engine will simply stop.
On the other hand, the B234 16-valve engines and any of the other Volvo multi valve engines are interference engines. Loss of the timing belt in these engines will result in severe or fatal engine damage.

How often should engine coolant be changed on a 1989 Olds Cutlass Ciera?


For most of the cars the Scheduled Maintenance Services has to be done at 30K, 60K and 90K. At the second Service at 60K dealers recomend the coolant system to be flushed. The inhibitors in the coolant starts breaking down, and the result might be a corroded radiator, heating core, and a partially clodgged heating core.
The transmission oil can't last for ever too. It starts breaking down at 30K and has to be changed at 60K.
It is a good idea to flush the braking system with fresh brake fluid too. The 60K service is expensive and it is a good idea to be done by yourself. It is not going to hurt your car if you change the rear differential oil too.

How often are hoses and belts change on a 2001 Yukon? Thinking of buying a 2001 Yukon..has only 64k miles, but 2nd owner said he has not done anything to the car other than regular oil change. He bought...


Hoses about every 6 years, Belts every 30k And if its that clean, Drive it and make sure it shifts out ok warm and hot, Get it up to 50-60 mph with all sounds off and listen for a whine even a slight wine, If none heard id say buy it, The whine i spoke of is rear diff noise by the way.

What does the 60k mile maintenance entail? how much it cost?


The dealer will get top dollar for anything they do, or possibly persuade you to do. At 60k, besides check this or check that, it is wise to do air filter every15k, max 30k. Fuel filter every 15k, max 30k. cabin filter every15k. Spark plugs these days can go as high as 100k. Serpentine belt at 45-60k. Coolant flush and fill every 30k, or every 2-3 years. Rotate tires every 6-8k. Oil and filter change every 3-5k. Most of that 700.00 is probably labor at probably $100/hr. to check brakes, check tires, check battery, safety check, etc., run tests, install new filters. All these dealers have checklists they establish to give you full security and comfort in knowing your car is safe and reliable.. You seem to know a little about it...it's the old saying, don't fix it if it ain't broke. At least discuss it with them, and then make an educated decision.

What to expect at 30K scheduled maintence-cost-wise/squeaking


Your owners manual will tell you what things they check and replace. At 30,000 miles the vehicle should still be under warranty, I believe vehicles now days come with 3 year, 36,000 mile warranty. Spark plugs are supposed to last 100,000 mile, so you should be looking at maybe an air filter, fuel filter, transmission fluid and filter, engine oil and filter. Squeaking noise may be brakes. Do you stop hard? Ask for an estimate before you let them attack your car.
