What is a flex fuel vehicle


A Flex fuel vehicle is one which can use E85 Ethanol fuel. This fuel has 15% alcohol and is more corrosive than basic Gasohol. This is a newer name for using 2 types of gasoline. It does not apply to leaded fuels.

Flex fuel may also be vehicles using a compressed liquid gas and gasoline. These types use gasoline to start and switch automatically to the second fuel system. There were older names for these systems.

There are systems which operate strictly on compressed liquid gas. Hybrids are those using electric and gasoline.

Is 93 Eagle Summit flex fuel?


I wouldn't think so. Flex fuel was developed after the car was built.
You could check with Chrysler or Mitsubishi to make sure.

What kind of gas does a maxima 2001


According to page 10-3 of the 2001 Nissan Maxima Owner's Manual:

FUEL RECOMMENDATION
Unleaded premium gasoline with an octane
rating of at least 91 AKI (Anti-Knock Index)
number (Research octane number 96)
If unleaded premium gasoline is not available,
unleaded regular gasoline with an
octane rating of at least 87 AKI (Research
octane number 91) can be used.
However, for maximum vehicle performance,
the use of unleaded premium gasoline
is recommended.

Engine "knock" is not just an unusual sound - but over time can cause real damage to the engine. You *should* use fuels with the recommended octane levels, but if you choose to use fuel with a lower octane level due to reduce fuel costs - do not repeatedly use fuel that causes engine knock. Find the "sweet spot" between the cost of lower octane fuel and an octane level that does not cause knocking. Expect fuel economy and performance to drop with lower octane fuels, too.

Good luck!

Check engine light on and car is shaking


The vehicle may still be under warranty. If you are the original owner and the vehicle has less than 10,000 miles, it's STILL under warranty. If you are the 2nd owner, and has less than 60,000 miles, it's still under warranty. Take it in for warranty repair.

WHAT IS FLEX FUEL IN CHEV 1500 SUBURBAN


Two key technologies help make this Suburban a clean and relatively efficient alternative fuel vehicle: GM's Active Fuel Management cylinder deactivation allows this engine to operate on only four of it's eight cylinders under light load conditions. The onboard computer determines if /when appropriate conditions exist for cylinder shutdown, and similarly determines when reactivation should occur. Under ideal conditions as much as 12-15 percent fuel savings can be realized. Flex-fuel capability compensates for the varying ratios of ethanol in the fuel, and adjusts engine parameters accordingly. Higher amounts of alcohol produce cleaner emissions and generally, (but not always) require re-calibrated fuel delivery.

After how many miles should you change fuel filter, jeep cherokee


The information for this should be in your owners manual. If you don't have an owners manual I would call a dealership and ask them. Different engines require different maintenance. I personally change mine about every 50,000 miles in my gasoline vehicles.

I have a 1984 dodge ram pick up with the mitsubishi motor and i was woindering if the timeing was belt or chain


1984 years came with the 2.0L, 2.6L gasoline and 2.3 diesel engines.

It's most likely a timing belt, but read further for more info. Recommended to be replaced at 60,000 miles (96,000 km) on gasoline engines and on diesel engines at 50,000 miles (80,000 km).

The 2.0 L Engine have two timing belts. One connects the crankshaft and camshaft, the second one drives the right silent shaft.

The 2.6L engine has a timing chain and a silent shaft chain.

Please check to see which particular engine you have and refer to the above for your answer.

Gas


Best way to check is by looking at the gas cap. If it does not say "Premium fuel only" you should be safe. Higher octane rated fuel is used for higher compression motors, and I dont belive that your engine (my guess is the 5.4 V8 should be around 9:1 compression) needs the high octane.
