Question about Garmin Nuvi 660 GPS Receiver

    Have you tried using an external antenna? There is a known issue with the Nuvi antennas where a part has failed causing the antenna to only accept signals from the external antenna jack. I have verified this issue on several Nuvi's. Try inserting a piece of wire, a few feet long (one strand) with no shield into the jack and sit back and see if it finds the satellites. I am working on a fix for this problem.

What is the average fuel consumption of a 1996 Toyota Tamarax FX GL Wagon?

do you want to figure out how to figure yours out. a 20 year old car nothing is going to be average. to get it better lose some weight in the car. meaning don't carry 500 lbs of stuff you don't need. the less it weights the less the engine has to work which saves gas use. fill your tank normal till the pump shuts off and don't pull the handle to add more fuel. then write down the mileage. drive the car 200 miles. fill the tank again the same way. then figure out the miles you drove and how much gas you put in the tank. if you drove 200 miles and used 10 gallons you get 20 miles to the gallon. doing a tune up and checking your air in the tires can increase the mileage. good idea to check it first before doing the tune up to show it did some good. I did a tune up once and got almost 5 more miles to the gallon after

My 2000 malibu chugs while going down highway 5 miles an hour

If you have done basic tune up stuff, I would check fuel pressure with gauge installed and running down the highway. Other possibles are bad ignition module, loose wire somewhere in coil circuit, bad fuel pump, filter, many others.

2005 GMC Yukon Denali's computer shuts down after the truck warms up

sounds like a fuel problem, how many miles on vehicle? as a quick fix it would be worth using a fuel addative , you haven't said if petrol or diesel, if petrol get addative that covers the catalytic converter ,having a blocked exhaust system can cause engine to stall also get the OBD codes read as this will tell you what if any sensors/switch's are faulty

Car stalls, starts up then stalls again, starts up and stalls again

This could have several problems. #1 Fuel pressure due freezing water in fuel lines add thermal aid or rubbing alcohol . If you have access to a pressure gauge there is a service fitting on fuel rail that you can test pressure while driving and see if the pressure is gone when car dies this could lead to fuel pump electrical or more restricted lines. #2 intermittent sensor failure Mopar uses 2 sensors to control spark and fuel lose one could lose spark lose the other lose injection with a scanner they call it C/C sync ok (cam/crank) if no then check for each parameters for display.# 3 relay controls ASD and FUEL pump for voltage drops.

maybe the started is bad, try having it tested, and also, check all wiring connections for the starter, see if anything is grounding out, or has a dirty connection, as that will cause you to lose electricity

On a 40 mile freeway ride home my '01 RSV 1000 began to smoke very heavily for say 5 miles temp constant 170 then it stopped. Initially I thought I blew it up smoke was so bad did seem to lose power....

Sorry man but yes,
Aprilia especially their higher end motorcycles are precision machines they don't just start to smoke take it to a dealer you trust. If you catch the problem early you could save some money

My sporti runs hot i can drive about 5 miles i lose power ,back fires and wont run needs to cool off then starts up for another 5 miles

Sounds like you've got a fuel problem. A lean mixture will make the engine run hot. Try loosening the fuel cap. Don't take it completely off, just loosen it so that air can get into the tank and ride it. If that cures the problem, it's the tank vent in the cap. If that doesn't effect it. you'll have to check the fuel flow all the way to the carb from the tank.

Good Luck
