I had this problem on my 2.0 D. I had changed the EGR valve but it still smoked badly especially on acceleration.

I discovered, upon removing the EGR valve again and inspecting the large hose that comes out of the bottom, that there was a large split in it.

I used some 'Hose Bandage' to test the pipe. It stopped the problem immediately. You will need to replace the pipe properly as the bandage wont hold for long due to temp and pressure I guess.

I had searched many sites for EGR problems and they all suggest changing the EGR, however if you search for split pipe and black smoke you get many hits for that too - especially Ford and Jags.

How do I get better gas mileage for my 2005 F-150? It now gets 11.5 mpg. In the past it averaged about 15 Any suggestions please


you could change the exhaust to a free flowing muffler. Should pay for itself after a a few tankfulls. Increasing the diameter of the exhaust pipe after the catalytic converter by one size will be helpful. If you have a 1.25" diameter pipe going into converter and then going to 1.5" after the converter.


This is what is known as a cat back modification. Should be cheap to have done at an exhaust shop for an F150.


Will sound better and run a little different. DO not need to go to a big expensive or name brand system, it will not affect emissions and should improve mileage and power. The idea is that you are releasing the heat faster and not changing the emissions of the vehicle.


Putting in a free flowing muffler is no big deal and should be easy enough to get a name brand model. Just do not spend a lot of money for this trick.

My 94 celica st coup five speed very low torque on take off and up small hills. And is an average of 25 mpg right?


Your mpg is what it is. Sometimes better, sometimes worse. As for the low power, replace the EGR(exhaust gas recirculation) valve and you'll have the power expected form the engine.

Just bought a 2007 Jeep Compass two weeks ago. Was told and have been reading that it should get an average of 25 mpg. I am only getting about 14 mpg. Took it to the Jeep dealership to have a diagnostic...


Since it is used, there are many possible answers to this one. The tires may not be fully pressured, you may need to change the air filter, new oil, as well as it may need a complete tune-up. New spark plugs, wires, fluids, etc. I would start with the cheap things first like filters, fluids and tires. Then check on the plugs. Also, the average of 25 is from the manufacturer and most of the times it's usually highway speeds.

Hope this helps

Mpg is going up and down all over the place and the power steering warning light came on


the mpg will go up and down depending on how car is driven.

to help you we need to know which mpg you are referring to.

three i can remember of the top of my head are 

average mpg this has a zero with a slash through it .this changes according to your average mpg you are achieving.

instant mpg , this changes instantly if you pedal to the metal it will go very low 7.1 mpg etc ,and if you come off the accelerator it should show no numbers --- 

the last one is range of the fuel tank this will change gradually and in some cases when inclines and declines are encountered on the roads..
hope this helps

MPG has dropped


Air filter? And any car I have ever owned with a timing belt has shown a noticeable drop-off in MPG when the belt had some miles on it. I would do what you have done but added (or at least eyeballed) the air filter. If that didn't bring it back, the timing belt was next since it doesn't take hardly any stretching to throw off the valve timing and it is critical to performance and MPG.

I have been averaging 23 to 25 mpg on my 2005 ford five hundred over the last three years, but in the last week it has dropped to 12 to 13


If this is the case, you should be experiencing some sort of serious powerloss. Could be a huge vaccum leak or a software problem...my best guesses

I usually get 30-32 mpg and now I am getting 27. Why?


Has there been any changes to your vehicle in the last few weeks that you can recall. Regular oil changes are a must. Also, check the air pressure in your tires every once in awhile. These two things are key to keeping your car running good and getting better gas mileage. Your tires will also last longer if they are at the propper PSI. Also, do you travel the same route every day or does it change. Highway driving and city driving have a big difference in the average fuel economy your vehicle is going to get.
