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.
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.
there is a book publish by the govnt or minister of transport on the exact milage as well if you know how many liters or gallons go in your tank like 80 liters and the gas is 1.00 a liter it cost $80 for 80 liters on a full tank you do 500 km but make sure proper conditions of 100km a hour tires all proper equal pressure the wind is also a facture there is a lot involved to calculate your gas proformance as well if you had a oil change done latly you can find out on a govt site for gas consuption or consumers report
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.
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'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.
