Well brake wear can be caused by alot of things. stop and go traffic,suddon stops,uneven tread,brakes rubbing or grinding on the rotors. it is really kinda hard to tell why. usually when you have an oil service done that is all the company is worried about. you may be able to ask them to check your brakes but they may want to charge you an inspection fee.

How to service a hyundi van h-1

You need a workshop manual to do the job properly. There are different items to service depending on the mileage - for example, a small service would usually entail cleaning the air filter and checking the fluid levels - engine oil, radiator water, brake and clutch fluid etc. Then check the tyres for wear and make sure all lights work OK.
A medium service would be to clean the air filter, or fit new one depending on driving conditions - you need to change this filter more often in dusty conditions.
Also, drain engine oil and refill and change spark plugs. Check plug wiring for cracks or breaks and do all in minor (small) service.
A major service would include all the above, but you now need to change the oil filter, fuel filter and the air filter, if necessary (oil and fuel filters are necessary).
Also, remove wheels and check condition of brake linings, check tyres for wear caused by misalignment and check play on wheel bearings.
These checks are not specific to your vehicle, and is just an overall guide. Your workshop manual may specify other areas. If in doubt, see your dealer, they have all the experts on hand.

I have a 2002 grand marquis and it was running perfect until yesterday.... It's making a knocking sound when you crank up the car and it get louder when you press the gas... It quiets down at one point but...

Hi just food for thought,the nocking would normaly mean the big ends where worn,but as you have sied that the oil pressure is low it could well be that the oil-pump is worn or filter of oil pickup is blocked.
hope this was helpfull.

Sluggish oil pressure

To start with, why on earth would an engine with re-used bearings, oil pump and cam need a "break-in" in the first place?

Then, it deserves mention that the number 1 cause of low oil pressure in a small block chevy engine is wear in the cam and/or cam bearings. The second highest cause is worn crankshaft main and rod bearings and the third highest cause is an oil pump that has too much internal clearance or an oil pump pick-up screen that is clogged with debris from shady repair work.

Sounds to me like you problem is probably related to the fact that the engine has not been "built", but rather, assembled with the same old worn out parts that most likely caused the need for it to be "built" in the first place.

Service 100 thousands miles

The 04 was pretty straight forward.

Change the oil and filter when the display tells you to. (Don't forget to reset Oil Life system!)
when the display tells you to change engine oil... Do the following as well:
~Lube Chassis Components
~Check Tires for Air and Damage
~Inspect Break System
~Check Engine Fluids and Washer System
~Check Power Steering System
~Check Wiper Blades
~Check Restraint System
~Lube Body Components (See manual)
~Replace Cabin Air Filter (Located in firewall on passenger side.)

Every 25K miles do the following:
~ Inspect Fuel System, Exhaust System, Accessory Drive Belts for damage or wear.
~ Replace Air Cleaner

Ever 50K Miles
~ If used for Towing - Replace Transfer Case Fluid :: If not change fluid ever 75Kk miles.

Every 100k Miles
~ Change Automatic Transmission Fluid and Filter
~ Change Automatic Transmission Fluid and Filter again at 150k if heavy service
~ Replace Spark Plugs

Every 150k miles
~ Change Engine Coolant (Or every 5 years which ever comes first!)
~ Replace Engine Accessory Drive Belt

optional y are supposed to change the transfer case fluid every 50k if towing

I have just changed the oil in my 87 gmc Vandura . The oil pressure if fine but after I run it for 30 min or so and come to a stop the oil pressure gauge drops to say no pressure. ...

If this is a new problem since the oil change the oil or filter are the cause. Filters do fail and is between the pump and the pressure sensor most times. So if there is a restriction in the filter the pressure will be low at idle. Replace the flter and see. There is a chance the sensor failed coincidently to the change too. A direct read of the pressure with a gauge will prove that. If you hear any ticking or tapping turn of the engine.

Brake trouble

Hi !
Firstly check the break oil level.... this will be below MIN level. Top the oil with the recomended break fluid.


The break pads have started to wear out and needs replacement.

The trani. slips if i start out in drive but if i manually shift it works. any ideas?

Sometimes changing the transmission filter and fluid helps to solve some tranny problems. check the fluid to see if it is dark and dirty. Check also for little pieces of metal or rubber when changing the filter. This will give you an idea if your tranny is about to give out. High volume of metal or rubber pieces means that the gears or rubber clutches are wearing out fast. Always refill with fresh fluid. I think that transmission fluid and transmission maintenance is one of the most ignored auto parts . Until it breaks down. The fluid at least should be checked every time the engine oil is changed.

Didn't change the oil for 20K then oil light came

Black some is from too much fuel, blue smoke is from burning oil. Keep an eye on oil consumption now. If your check engine light doesn't come on, just keep an eye on it. 20k miles??? Dude!

Oil change intervals

I personally hold synthetic oil as the high-standard of lubricants. However quality varies. Without completely flushing I would not recommend use in a high mile engine.
"ordinary oils" are far better than they used to be, but begin to break down substantially after about 2500 miles. No dealer wants your car to last beyond the warranty period. They sell new cars! Changing your oil & filter at 3000 miles is reasonable, and not too often. If you are using quite a bit of oil, take care of all external leaks you can. It will help a lot. You can't extend change intervals because of oil consumption. The filter must be serviced regularly or you will cause more internal wear.
