Drive a miles on an open road, dont use your brakes. Coast to a stop and feel your rims, they should be cool or air warm, not HOT, that means dragging brakes, check rears too for E-brake drag.

I think I am only getting like 12 miles per gallon in my 2001 chevy blazer . It definately needs a tuneup Please tell me some of the main causes of high fuel consumption so maybe I can fix it myself. Any...


check tire pressure, replace air filter,fast take offs, slipping transmission torque converter or slipping clutch on manual transmission.lot city driving making a lot of short stops,clogged leaking fuel injectors,faulty coolant thermostat remains stuck open, running ac or air conditioner a lot will cause fuel consumption,dragging rear parking brakes need adjustment, look for gas leaks.if you do a lot of towing pulling boat or camper will cause fuel consuption.

High consuption fuel


try unhooking the battery over nite and hook it back in morning.
that will dump the memory on the computer and it will have to relearn the way you drive.
don't try to drive to fast the first 150 miles. so don't floor it till it learns.

Which oil is good for my car daewoo nubira 2002 model. like angine oil . like 5w 30, 10w 30, 15w 40 , 20w 50, ............and if i put the 20w 50 grade angine oil so whats happen in my car?like fuel...


You should not put 20w 50 in the car. That is way to thick and it will not be able to circulate through out the engine efficiently. Also does not lubricate the internal parts as needed. That would be used on a more bigger engine. Your car should run fine on 10w 30.

Trouble with the car starting it has 55000 miles on it. it eventually starts after turning it over 2 or sometimes 3 times. im thinking it must be the spark plugs


Im not sure if that is the issue or not. It is possible but before I would tell you yes, I would want to know if you have changed the following as it is requested in routine maintenence.
air filter and fuel filter?
routine services? have they been done?
2005 really should not require spark plugs unless you have driven 100000 miles already.
If the answer is yes to all I have written. i would indeed check the
plugs but also consider checking air filter look inside throttle body with the hose off to see if it blackish looking, also try to put some fuel injection system cleaner in your vehicle with at least 3/4 of a tank of fuel.
You may even consider haveing your fuel pressure tested. These are things to always consider when it comes to hard starts.

I have a 1999 grand prix gtp that shuts off when I'm driving it doesn't happen very often but yesterday it shut off on the highway the batt light and oil light came on right after and plus my car seems...


I'd definitley look at the fuel pump resistor first. Otherwise I'd say it's the fuel pump. But to find out before you spend too much money it may be worth your while to change the fuel filter, that will at least help whether the pump is bad or not.
