Check to ensure that the overdrive is on or you will be running at high revs in top gear.
The airconditioning usually switches on another fan so that can help cooling.
Often a cooling system can cope with lower speed running but faster and longer trips show up faults in several possible areas:
thermostat sticking or only opening partially.
radiator partially blocked.
electric fan not operating.
The above three should be tested.
The timing may be out but it is set by computer and would have to have cambelt setting wrong to cause overheating.
Waterpumps can wear the impellor but again is rare.

Tips For Fuel Saving _ Hypermiling



T i p s f o r H y p e r m i I i n g.
The points indicated will help a long way to improve performance of vehicle, engine life, reduce maintenance bills except the periodic checkups, and lastly improve a great deal in going that extra mile for your costly fuel. Regarding Driving habits: Never ride on the clutch. Never ride on higher gear at lower RPM- avoid the engine pinking as one tends to waste fuel to power the engine. Avoid accelerating and braking at short length. Decelerate using lower gear without powering engine unnecessarily on seeing an obstruction, junction or stop. Highway driving - keep a steady average in top gear without over /under powering. Wind up window glass at higher speeds to avoid drag. Cut off a/c moments before you stop as sufficient cooling will remain also reducing strain on engine. Regular washing/waxing/polishing of body will improve aerodynamics reducing drag. Cut off engine at longer duration traffic signals, level crossings, traffic jams. . Fill with best grade of fuel as it improves power/performance of engine, incrementing the mileage ratio. Different grades are available but one can choose the better grade to give a longer life span specially for diesel engines. It has better octane value and purity. If possible try to fill up the tank as it reduces: Avoid Trips only to fill fuel. Built up of volatile gas over a dry tank leaking. Loss due to the numerous short fills -a percentage could be expected. Check up only at a determined period. Air Pressure confirmed as specified not less. The multi point check up including Engine oil, fluids, coolants, etc., Avoid changing workshops but keep the log book updated. Confirm with the service manager of spares changed- only with Originals. Brake pads, bearings, hubs are to be checked for obstructions to free rolling. Any new noise should be monitored getting worse wanting an inspection/rectification. Many faults go unnoticed by new users but will require the assistance of a friendly auto enthusiast.
Overall drive gently without emotional racing

2000 Suzuki Grand Vitara. 5 speed. clutch is pressed in vehicle still in gear have to shift to neutral at stop lights. Have to shut vehicle off to get in gear. Is this a clutch or cylinder prob!Em?


The fact that you have to switch off to get it into gear suggests a cylinder problem.

Check that the cylinder isn't leaking (and there's fluid in the reservoir..).

Clutch cylinders aren't overly expensive:

... and if you hunt around you may even find an overhaul kit which is even cheaper.

Why susuki cultus reduce coolant level without over heating


Suggests sign of internal leak. Check dipstick for engine oil to see if there is a sign of coolant mixed with engine oil. (Generally foaming of oil instead of amber or dark solid color) (Could even show level is high due to coolant adding to oil and raising level.)
If there is, it's a very serious problem.
One quick way to try a very inexpensive fix that's worked for me is a product called Barr's Leak. (It's worked twice for me on two cars.) Get the expensive "copper" version (looks like liquid copper) and add to your coolant system following manufacturer's instructions. Top off coolant and then drive car for a couple of full engine temperature sessions.
If coolant then no longer goes down, change engine oil draining out old coolant that may have contaminated it and refill with new filter.
Keep an eye on level after that to see if coolant level remains stable.
If coolant still goes down, a engine over haul or new engine may be needed.

Why is my transmission struggling to maintain gear at 35 mph?


I would take it to 2 or 3 or more different shops and ask for an estimate to fix it.. they will probably know what causes this condition. and probably will not charge you anything.. if they want to charge you for an estimate go somewhere else. you really do not want to trust them.. When you get several estimates and several of them tell you the same thing then its a matter of who do you trust??.. Check the shops out on Yelp.. actually sounds like it could be something simple like throttle presure adjustment.. But i cannot see your car from here.

What is the o/d button on top of automatic gear stick for please


Over Drive..... Generally speaking, overdrive (OD) is the highest gear in the transmission. Overdrive allows the engine to operate at a lower rpm for a given road speed. This allows the vehicle to achieve better fuel efficiency, and often quieter operation on the highway. When it is switched on, an automatic transmission can shift into overdrive mode after a certain speed is reached (usually 70+ km/h [43+ mph] depending on the load). When it is off, the automatic transmission shifting is limited to the lower gears. For an automatic transmission, it is almost always best to select overdrive and allow the transmission to control engagement of the overdrive. (It may be necessary to switch it off if the vehicle is being operated in a mountainous area or when towing a trailer.) With a manual transmission, overdrive should usually be selected when the average speed is above 70 km/h (approx. 43 mph).

I just wanted to know the optimal shifting points to do 70mph comfortably. Should the car be at 2500-3000 rpm in 5th gear at 60-65 mph? I typically shift at or around 3k rpm in every gear, and the car...


How many gears does your car have? One of my cars has to do a little over 3000rpm to maintain 70-75 in 5th gear. My other car has to do about 3000rpm to maintain 65-70 in 5th gear.

It all depends on the number of gears your car has and the gearing ratio. The second car I have is geared more optimally for city driving and gets better fuel economy going slower than fast highway speeds.

Having driven several rental cars too I would say anywhere between 2500 to 3000 is reasonable for the average car. If you are driving a vehicle like say a porsche, bmw or audi they may have more gears and may be at a lower rpm at 70mph than your car.
