Should be getting around 15 city and 18 highway average 16mpg combined, a tune up can fix your problems. Spark plugs wires, air cleaner, fuel filter all the basics.

    Sorry yes most vehicles come with coil packs like my acura , they are normally in good condition . But the basics without spending a fortune Would be new air filter, spark plugs, and fuel filter, make sure your tires are at the recommended pressure they can cause a lower mpg.

    Hey mirko701 I was doing a little searching and found that a malfunctioning speed sensor can cause lose in mpg. It sends a signal to the computer and if not opperating properly can cause transmission to shift late or to early which may or maynot be noticed, but it also can cause the poor gas miliage you are noticing. Hope this helps you solve your problem.

Poor gas milage?

Thinking you are getting poor gas milage,Your engine is running smooth,no misses,Engine runs smooth while accelerating up a hill, Still poor gas milage, Check your tire pressure. I have a 1999 Chevy Blazer 4x4, 4.3 Ltr. Auto, loaded. I have just over 154000 miles on it,I change my fluids every 5000 miles. Summer driving milage got real bad. I drive a Blazer hard. I tow a 16ft trailor usally loaded to the top with wood. Tires get hot in the summer, while in the winter, they stay mostly cool. Always check your air pressure.Most vehicals are equipted with radials now days, So if you think a tire looks low, check it, Usally they low. Usally in the winter months, nobody checks tire pressure. It really does make a difference. I went from 17.2 MPG to 19.5 MPG, while pulling the same trailor loaded with wood. I cut my own wood then stack it in my trailor to sell. I have Good Year Wranglers size: P235/75R/15 I just replace these with new ones. The old ones are going on my trailor. Counted milage on tires are 65000 Miles. Tires were rated at 40000 miles, Under normal use.

If you haven't done so recently then replace your air filter, that might help. You can also take the vehicle to autozone or any auto parts chain store that will run a diagnostic scan for free and see if any error codes are present and if there are they will tell you what parts may need replaced. You should be getting much better fuel mileage than that.

Check engine light on; Gas milage went from 19 to 15, emission ba

YES!!, you had it tuned, it runs good, but gas mileage dropped, and check engine light is on,it sounds like the o2 sensors are slow or even dead, i would replace them for sure and that just might solve all your problems,good luck, hope this helps.

Oil pressure shows low (nearly zero) when idling after running for awhile, returns to normal when accelerating

just regular wear...try to use thicker oil like a 10w-30 if ur using a 5w...otherwise its just normal wear keep an eye on level of oil too might be leakin anti freeze into it worst case scenario

2007 kia rondo seems to use alot of gas

I have the same issue of low gas mileage. My 2008 Kia Rondo with V6 (2.7Lt) gets 20-21 mpg in average. Even for highway mileage, it is around 21-22mpg. Very poor gas mileage. Disappointed. I hope it would improve in the future.

2000 grand cherokee gas milage

Wide tires make less gas millage, get narrow wheels, let the car accomplish speed slowly from 0 to 30, look at air filter,if shortly replaced, oxygen censor, 15 miles is normal 16 miles per gallon is good for a V8
