1992 1.3 ltr charade.how many kms between timing belt changes


Most common is 100,000km's for timing belts. Timing chains can be between 500,000 - 1,000,000km's ( change when they start getting noisy lol) If your charade is turbo'd then I'd say between 50,000 - 80,000 to be/stay safe, if not then 100,000km's is fine :-)

How do you check oil level in a 2004 xb12r


The oil is stored in the swingarm on the 2004 XB12R. Warm the bike up, then check the oil level on the dipstick which is located on the left side of the swingarm.

50,000 miles what absolutly has to be serviced


There is a 60,000 mile service for that vehicle. I am assuming you have a 1500. It should have the oil, air filter, transmission filter and gasket & the PCV valve changed. Keep up with maintainence and the vehicle should last you. Regular maintainence to me is the best policy.

There are 225000 km on a used mercury cougar that i am interested in buying and i was wondering if with that amount of kms, is there much life left in it and are there any occuring problems that you have...


A vehicle with that many kms does not present a problem. It all has to do with how well the vehicle was maintained, are the kms more highway or city, and any all problems the previous owners had. The amount of kms does not determine the amount of time left. Perform the necessary maintenance (oil, filters, plugs and wires, etc) and the vehicle will last as long as properly maintained.

Can I change the trans fluid for Jetta TDI at 70K miles?


If all is working fine, and the transmission has never been overheated, an oil change around 50,000 miles ( 80,000 kms ) and the filter will do. Depends on the driving conditions and loads carried.
So now please do change it immediately.

Good news for you pal, that is the same as an engine checklite in your car.It's supposed to light up when you turn the key on and then go away after starting. You can start to worry when it stays ON.....Good luck to you friend,Nice Bike !...Tim

Kia Rio died in traffic. Will not start.


Hello Kia Owner,
Regarding the shut down, when was the last time you changed the timing belt?? Did you know that the twin cam 1.5 lirte motor needs a new belt every 50,000 miles or 80,000 kms.
If the belt has failed it may still be in tact but with the cogs ripped off.
Your valves have collided with at least one piston but it is good you were only idling at the time.
The motor may be worth fixing. I just fixed mine myself. I had to lift the engine after removing the axles. I removed the old timing belt and removed and rebuilt the cylinder head(big job). Two exhaust valves were boken right off and lying inside one cylinder.
Most likely your timing belt failed as well.

When do i change the transmission fluid 2005 monte carlo?


Well, I'm not really sure what the manufacturer's recommended interval is... But to be honest with you, once every 100000 kms, or 5-6 years is plenty for a transmission fluid/filter change is enough (yes, there is a filter inside the pan of the transmission, assuming it's an automatic). But, if you notice problems earlier (transmission starting to slip, fluid discoloration, or any other transmission related driveability issues) the first thing to do would be to do a transmission oil/filter change as soon as you can. Beware of these places that offer a transmission flush, that's about as useful as putting winter air in your tires, and costs money for nothing.
