You are doing great if you haven't had to perform a tune up yet. These fords are normally misfiring before 100k making a tune-up a must do. The absolute minimum would be air and fuel filter. The fuel filter will greatly improve your fuel milage and save you bundles down the road. If the fuel filter is clogged it will make it hard on the fuel pump to force fuel through a clogged filter and this is the #1 cause for fuel pump failure. A very costly repair. Another way to save money down the road would be a transmission fluid change. This will help provide the best protection to internal transmission parts and thus make it last longer than it normally would. You may also be quite surprised how much fuel milage you will gain by doing the tune-up. The way i look at it is if you save $200 in a few months on fuel milage, then it eventually will pay for the tune-up and continue to save you money. Hope this helps!

STARTS BUT WON'T STAY RUNNING


Could be something as simple as a dirty fuel filter.
Get a can of quick start at the store and have someone start it up, when it wants to die squirt a shot into the intake ... if it runs again for a bit you have a fuel delivery issue. Check the fuel pressure to see if the pump is functioning properly.

I have a 1997 honda accord the odometer has stopped working it just turned over to 139999 it is stuck between the next number140000.What do I have to do?


the 10,000 gear has worn out. Even if you could somehow "jog" the odometer
to the next number, it would likely
encounter the same problem trying to transition from 149999 to 150000.

Your option is replacement, or do what 99.999% of car owners do when the Odometer quits - ignore it.
Or set the trip odometer to zero, and never touch it again - thereby you can calculate the
total mileage by adding the trip odometer value to 140000.

Knowing the current odometer mileage is valuable for a Honda Accord owner with 140K miles, since
you want to keep up the regular maintenance intervals for your car - if you do, you 97 Accord
will likely travel past the 200K miles mark, and eventually approach 250K miles (like my Accord).

HI,I HAVE A CHRYSLER PACIFICA 2006 3.5L W SYNTHETIC OIL ,EVERY HOW MANY MILES NEED TO BE CHANGED?


Everyone say's 3000 miles. I was a technician for 16 years, I own three cars. One with 194000, one with 140000 and one with 107000 miles on it. I change my oil every 4000 to 5000 miles. From my experience most engine problems are from a lack of oil, not from a lack of oil changes. Remember to always keep an eye on your oil level.

Does it require tune up


Regular Maintenance is vital to keeping your car on the road. The time and effort you put into keeping up with scheduled maintenance can save you big money in the long run.
Dealer 30k, 60k or 90k mile tune-ups can run from $250 for 3-4 hours of labor and basic maintenance, to over $1,000 at places with high labor costs and additional maintenance services, such as timing belt replacement.
If the mechanic identifies needed repairs, this can add a significant amount to your total.
At 90K repair shops normally replace the timing belt, or timing chain.
Your car require a tune up, if you have more than 30K on it. What kind of tune up your car needs depend on how many miles do you have on your car.

When do i need to change a timing belt on a 1995 1.9td umwelt vw passat estate it has done 140000 miles with fsh should it be due soon?


Most US cars recommend change at 60,000 miles. I would say that you have gotten your money's worth out of the original belt. Some engines suffer piston and valve damage if the belt breaks.

My 2001 Toyoya Avalon is overheating what could be the issues?


Make sure the electric cooling fans are coming on. If they are, you could have a bad thermostat and gasket. If the fans aren't coming on, you probably have a bad coolant temp sensor. Also, check your fuses, if the fans aren't coming on.
