You did not specify year model engine size or miles
and/or what you have/have not done so far

I can only assumed you have not completed any maintenance like plugs, fuel filter and/or wires

Hello,i bought a subaru outback 2002 from 3 months.and it's consuming more gas than normal.(130km/20 litre) could you please tell me what i have to change? and what is the normal consumption for this...


REPLACE AIR FILTER.CLEAN FUEL INJECTORS,CHECK TIRE PRESSURE.LOW TIRE PRESSURE WILL CAUSE LOT OF FUEL CONSUMPTION.CITY DRIVING WILL BURN LOT MORE GAS,STOPPING VECHICLE THEN GOING WILL CAUSE MORE GAS BURNING, YOU NEED POWER AND FUEL TO GET VECHICLE IN MOTION,BY IT BEING HOT WEATHER, USING AIR CONDITIONING TO KEEP COOL INSIDE WILL CAUSE MORE FUEL CONSUMPTION.

I am filling up 4 times out of the week instead of 2 times can you tell me what that is from


could be a leak. (look for gas puddles under your vehicle daily & have your oil pan drained to check for gas inthe oil pan)
could be your fuel mixture is to rich burning to much fuel0.
could be someone is stealing gas from your tank. (get a key lock on your gas cap if you dont have one yet.)
could be your driving more then you normally do. (monitor your miles driven versus how much gas you burn and figure out your miles per gallon to see if it is off something drastic)

My 92 saturn sl burns through gas way too fast. I barely make it 30 miles without having to fill up again. What do i need to do to get better gas mileage?


Need some more info. How much gas are you putting in it? Does it smell like raw gas at anytime? Under the hood or under the car? Possible broken (rusted) fuel line. Any service engine lights on? Does the car seem to run well?

What type oil does my Mazda Protege use


Your car is nothing fancy I take it, not a race car?, diesel? Just a normal car that burns gas. Then it will take normal oil, in the 10w40 weight range. Any brand but jiffy store, although it meets SAE standards, the weight is the important part, it depends on where you live and what season it is. If you live in Canada and it is winter time, 10w40 might be too thick, you should go with 5w30 instead, in Massachusetts, straight 30 weight is ok, down here in Florida, 10w40 is a must. Hot. So, go by that heat range, you should be all set. Hope this helps.

White smoke coming out exhaust


well if it is white smoke and smells a little fishy, that is anti-freeze burning up so your head gasket mostlikely needs to be replace. but if it is a blueish white smoke that is oil being burn and that mean that you need to change your oil. if you have been changing you oil normally and it is giving you that then that means your pistion rings are worren. if you don't want to replace them you could put a heavier oil in like if normally you use 10w-30 you could put in 20w-50 in and that should help. worren pistion rings allow excess oil to get into the pistion chamber and that is why it burns it up, This should also be noticed by you oil level dropping faster then normal too.

Fusible link in 1993 festiva


Had a customers car do this and tested the daylights out of everything to no avail..."non-factory" solution was to replace link with a 30 amp breaker...when problem happened breaker would open, then close several minutes later, returning to normal operation. Can't hurt to try it!!!
