Hello! The Check Engine Light (CEL) is the vehicle's Electronic Control Unit (ECU) telling you it has found and stored a fault...These faults are handled by On Board Diagnostics Version II (OBDII)...Take your MPV to an auto parts store and they will decode the fault as a courtesy...Typical faults begin with a letter "P" followed by four digits (P0402 as an example)...That code tells a technician what area or circuit is at fault...When you have the code, send a comment and I'll FixYa...................Guru.....saailer

I'm having trouble with my '98 Olds Intrigue with less than 12,000 miles. The transmission slips, (The guy at the dealer says "flares up") when it first starts in the morning and after riding on...

No, do not junk it, those transmissions (4L60) are all over the place, and with only 12,000 miles the engine and body are probably in very good condition-you have a 3.8 engine, and that is a very durable engine. You can get a trans out of a car at a junkyard, check Craigslist or ebay, and find someone who would install it-probably could do the whole thing for less than $800 if you do a little research. I have a 00 Intrigue with a 3.5, 135,000 miles, and it is a great car-I just drove it cross country from outside Philadelphia to Los Angeles, in 2 1/2 days (2900 miles) and got over 30 mpg-that car you have is worth saving in my opinion.

Sudden misfire in engine. Spark plugs look like the gap is around 2mm wide, and the engine light is come up on the dash. The car is a nissan primera 2001

The spark plug gaps should be around 1.0 to 1.2 mm Max. If they have worn to become that wide or they have done more than 12,000 miles or 20,000 Km, it would be better to replace them rather than trying to clean and regap. If you want more information on spark plugs such as recommend type for your engine and failure indications, you can visit the websites of the major plug manufacturers such as KLG, Champion, Bosck and NGK.

2002 pontiac boneville sevice engine soon light stays om

hi what this is telling you is that you now need to get the vehicle serviced, what manufacturers do is put a certain amount of miles on the system before the next service is due, this will depend on how many miles before the next one, eg, if the manufacturer says that you have 12,000 miles between each service it will put 11,500 miles as a reminder, then when you get over the miles say 12,500 this will stay on until the service has been done and then the light is reset by the garage....hope this helps please rate and vote thanks

My jeep wrangler just passed 100,000 miles, what service does it need?

Here is the basic maintenance list for your Jeep:

~ Inspect lights and check tire pressure at least monthly or before & after each trail ride

~ Oil & filter change, chassis lubrication, differential and transfer-case fluids every 3,000 to 5,000 miles or 3 to 4 months - if you have recently crossed through water deep enough to submerge the centre of your hubs, replace the differential fluids as a precaution

~ Underhood belt and hose inspection every 3,000 to 5,000 miles or 3 to 4 months (every oil change)

~ Tire rotation and wheel balancing every 6,000 miles or every other oil change - driving offroad can knock wheel weights off a wheel, so you may need to have this done more frequently

~ Brake inspection every 6,000 miles or every other oil change - if you have rum brakes in the rear, ensure they are cleaned after each trail ride where you encountered deep mud/snow

~ Replace air filter every 12,000 to 24,000 miles or as indicated by inspection - dusty trails can shorten these intervals dramatically

~ Replace fuel filter every 24,000 to 100,000 miles

~ Automatic transmission service every 24,000 to 100,000 miles

~ Wheel alignment check every 12,000 to 24,000 miles or as indicated by tire wear - offroad driving can knock wheels out of alignment, so budget for an alignment every 3 months, then watch tread wear to see if it's needed

~ Cooling system flush and refill every 40,000 to 100,000 miles

~ Belt and hose replacement every 60,000 to 100,000 miles or 5 to 8 years

~ Engine timing belt replacement every 60,000 to 100,000 miles (when equipped) or 5 to 8 years

~ Air conditioning performance check annually, usually in the spring - be sure to run your A/C during the winter for brief period to ensure all hoses and valves stay lubricated and operable

Best ways to keep my 1996 mercedes benz c class engine efficient

Oil changes every 6,000 miles with new filter too.

New spark plugs, HT leads and distributor cap every 12,000 miles.

Let it warm up properly in the morning before moving off.

Clean air filter or replace ever 12,000 miles.

Clean out the intake manifold with carb cleaner to remove nasty deposits.

That should help your engine last a very long time.

Hope this helps and vote for if you think so. Thanks

I did not get a vehicle scheduled maintenance guide with our used car, how often do we need to get the lube and oil and how often do we need to get tire rotation. we have a 2002 ford mustang.

Oil change every 3000 miles

air filter inspect every 3000 miles // less if you in the country
Change every 12,000 miles

There is nothing to lube on a modern day car!

Wheel bearing inspect every 12,000 miles.

Fuel filter 24,000 miles or less

Tire rotation is depending on are you a lead foot driver.
Keep tabs on the rear treads.
The rear wear faster on RWD car.
The idea is keep the wear even.

Shop around,some shop is offering free tire rotation with oil change!

I rotate my tires every 6000 miles.

At how many miles do I need a tune up?

It depends on the engine you have. If you do not have a 100,000 mile sparkplug then replace plugs every 40,000 to 50,000 miles. Or at 2 to 3 year intervals whichever comes first.

Other maintenence requires shorter times. Oil changes and filters 3000 to 5000 miles. Air filters about 12,000 miles. If you have a distributor cap and rotor about 30,000 to 40,000 miles depending on wear.
Check antifreeze strength, change antifreeze every 3 years. Always have axles and wheel bearings checked at least every 24,000 miles. Lube door hinges annually, hood release, trunklid hinges, etc.
