You can take it to a mechanic, have them put it on their scanner, and they should be able to access the true mileage.

Can dealers or shops read the computer on my 1997 ford escort to determine the exact miles from the odometer?

Who are you trying to fool? I'm not sure, but I think when you change a dash cluster the mileage will be that of the new cluster, but I think some cars have an interplay with the ECU, such that the dealer can make the dash show real miles. Sorry, not a good answer I guess.

Thinking about buying a ford escape..2009....miles @ 132, this good to buy with mileage being high

Normally this amount of mileage is fine...The Escape is safe, and popular...At these miles, the motor should have been tuned up...brakes replaced recently? Also front and rear struts are usually worn out before 80,000 miles...have they been replaced? A service record on this Escape may be available? Can you talk with the previous owner?

Low gas mileage city and hiway @ 4-5 MPG below MSRP sticker data of 15 and 21MPG on a NEW 2013 Silverado. 2000 miles on odometer and mileage not improving.

is this calculated mileage or what the estimated mileage is showing on the dash. Have you checked to see what you get on just the freeway?

What are your driving habits like?

How is your tire pressure?

Do you make a lot of short trips?

Was geting 18 miles to the gallon now geting 14 it the fuel pump or the air felter. and it had a tune up.

A tune up can reduce mileage. If they set the timing perfectly, that could reduce power and waste gas. You get the most mileage and power if the ignition is advanced as much as possible, until you get a pre-ignition ping in hard 2nd gear acceleration. They you know you have to back off a bit.
Fuel pump should get weaker with age, so should not cause worse mileage.
Air filter has much more effect on a carburetor, and little on a fuel injected car. But why not change it anyway?
If it idles rough, I would suspect a plug wire.

98 jeep computer replacement does this need to be done by dealer

Fuel mileage or miles on odometer? Miles on dash will remain the same...fuel mileage should improve if there is a fault in the old computer (reason for change) Unless the computer is not the main computer but is the one that stores miles etc for dash display.

I have a 1985 300zx with a digital dash & analog miles counter---the speedometer & all digital systems work fine,except now the miles aren`t calculating,nor does the digital gas counter work which...

I believe there is an "amplifier" box, as you described, for the digital dash, I think under the dash towards the center console. Check out or call your local Nissan parts counter for exact location.. They should be able to tell you.
I don't know about the miles counter. If your speedometer works, it shouldn't be the speedometer cable. Sorry I can't help you on that.
My parts counter guy has always been helpful in trying to troubleshoot many issues. At least you should know his name.
Also, check out your local Z club. and maybe
Good luck and happy motoring,
