If you have a certain repair shop that you normally go to.They should be keeping you informed on what you should be maintaining on your vehicle.The maintenance schedule usually goes by every 3k mile intervals.You change your oil every 3k miles,rotate tires at 6k.Tires should be rotated every 6k miles or every other oil change.Have alignment checked at 15k.You should have your brakes checked,air filter,belt,fuel filter,pcv valve.If you don`t have a regular repair shop that you go to.You should find one.Don`t just hit the quick lubes for an oil change when you get a chance.Like I said a good repair shop will keep you informed on your vehicle and should explain any problem with your vehicle.Hope this helps.Good luck.

How many miles should 2006 hhr transmission fluid be changed


According to the owner's manual:
Owners manual says change at 50,000, 100,000 and 150,000 miles if you are driving under one of these conditions:
1) in heavy city traffic where the outside temp regularly reaches 90 or higher
2) in hilly or mountainous terrain
3) when doing frequent towing
4) uses such at a taxi,police,or delivery service

if you do not use you vehicle under any of there conditions ,the fluid and the filter do not require changing per GM.

That being said, I've seen one come into a shop working fine, but being hugely past its "service by" mileage, needing rebuilt after having a fluid change and filter. The old fluid is so filled with particles of the clutch packs that changing it out causes the transmission to slip like mad, the particles were acting like the friction material in the clutch packs.

Outlander2009...on dashboard appeare service reuiered with appearance of 4wd alternating with lock !


Service Required dash lights are usually preprogrammed to come on at 50,000 miles intervals. If nothing is wrong with vehicle, check under the dash for a switch that can be pushed to the other side which will reset it for the next 50,000 miles.

What maintenance/service is recommended for the 2005 Nissan Frontier at the 50,000 miles marker?


the only listing for 50,000 miles is to change oil and filter and rotate tires, this is assuming you have done the other services at 30,000 miles which has alot more done but this is all to be done at 50,000. hope this helps.

What will I be looking at, repair wise, when I have reached 200,000 kms


u should have had the trans serviced, the belts and hoses replaced, the cooling system serviced, a new thermostat and the spark spark plugs replaced at 160,000 km, also air and fuel filters if they haven't been done in the last 30,000 miles or 50,000 Km. right now if all the above was done you should be good to go.

Should a 2005 Taurus with 100,000 miles have the water pump replaced as preventative maintenance? What about the timing chain/belt?


Yes it needs to be replaced its already time for that.
IntervalsHere is what I recommend for maintenance intervals. There are exceptions to all of these including severe duty, which most northern cars fall into.

  • Change Transmission filter-30,000 miles, 90,000 and 150,000 miles and fluid at 60,000, 120,000 and 180,000 miles.
  • Change oil every 3,000 miles or 3 months, unless you use Mobil One, in which case 6 months/6,000 miles.
  • Chassis lube every 3,000 miles, assuming there are fittings.
  • Spark plugs: Conventional plugs: 30,000 miles, Double platinum: every 50,000 miles (100,000 mile plugs are best to be changed well before that, although some can reach it).
  • Fuel filter: 35,000-40,000 miles. Unless it is in the tank. But if the tank is ever dropped, do it then
  • Ignition cap, rotor, wires: 60,000-80,000 miles. (if it has them).
  • Timing Belt, if applicible: 60,000 miles on many but check with gates or dayco or the manual or dealer, as many different intervals are now present.
  • Coolant flush -- green: 2 years/24,000 miles.
  • Coolant flush -- dex-cool or long life: 5 years/50,000 miles.
  • Tire rotation: 5,000-8,000 miles.
  • Alignment: 15,000-20,000 miles., unless tire wear is not a problem and car goes straight.
  • Brake fluid flush and power steering fluid flush: 2 years or when dirty or discolored.
  • Air filter, pcv valve and cabin air filter: as needed.
  • Professional fuel injection service: 40,000 miles.
  • Throttle bore plate cleaning: 20,000 miles.
  • Air induction service: 20,000 miles.
MaintenanceEvery auto manufacturer lists their required maintenance on their web sites and in the owners manual the maintenance service intervals vary between manufacturers.

Your car is a moving piece of machinery, it needs maintenance, if you want this car to last you need to service it. Do not just do the minimum recommended services that are listed in you service manual. Make sure you service your cooling system which prolongs the life of the radiator and water pump, and the power steering system, which will extend the life of your cars power-seeking pump and gear box or rack. It will cost you much more than you want to spend when you fail to maintain your car and larger problems surface. I recommend that you review your owners manual and get acquainted with a reputable auto repair facility. A good relationship with you car and your car's mechanic will benefit you in the long run, providing you with a long lasting and safe car.

At 30,000 miles you should also service your cooling system, transmission, fuel system and power steering; this should be repeated every 30k miles. I recommend flushes of the later mentioned items to prolong these systems' life span.

My 2001 honda crv is about 50,000 miles. what maintenance service do you recommend?


50,000 miles then all its needed is the oil changed. One thing though, the automatic transmissions on honda's don't last as long as the engines. They seem to last about 120,000 miles on most newer hondas. The manual transmissions are bulletproof though. Other than a clutch every 150,000 miles or so a manual transmission accord will run much longer than the body will last if its driven normally.

What kind of maintience need to be done on a 2003 Z71 fwd ?


Change the filter with each oil change. Unless your towing, the tranny filter is usually 60k miles. Check your manual to be sure. Your manual should spell out when maintenance is to be done. If a garage wants you to do some outrageous expensive maintenance, have another garage look at it.
