Unhooked all sensors and battery cables. The car acts as if it is in a fail safe more.

It is unlikely that this is a direct result of a minor change in tire size, have you checked your transmission fluid level?

Beside 225/50/16 what other size can fit a 2002 Mercury Cougar


Your best choice is to use the DiscountTire.com website and use the optional tools available. You can enter your vehicle and the site can be made to do alternate tire sizes.

There are some choices on the left side of the home screen and you can even find out the true road speed versus speedometer readings if you use an optional tire upgrade.

Now there are several ways to change things. Width and sidewall profile both contribute to Revolutions per mile. My Mercury car came with 60 Series tires, changing to a 65 Series of the same width gave me a 5% boost in fuel mileage with a corresponding speedometer error.

You do have some limits, wheel rim width will not work on extreme tire changes. Different width wheels would be needed. You have to consider clearance issues between the tire and frame of the car on turns. Both the inside edges of the tire must clear the frame.

The total tire height reflects 1/2 the distance change below and 1/2 the change above the wheel rim. So ride height would change and wheel opening clearance would change.

You have many choices of tire size. In sidewalls, they make 55, 60, and 65 Series tires. In width, 225,235,245 and P metric. Use the Discount Tire site, maybe the Tirerack site and work with the numbers.

Go to a Tire shop and have then pull a 50 Series, 55 Series, and 60 Series.tire in the same width. You will be able to see for yourself what the numbers mean.

I would feel comfortable saying an upgrade to a 55 Series would be no problem. You should have a Label on the doorjam to show tire sizes and inflation rates.

Please rate my info.

2002 toyota camary speedometer and odometer readings, on my 2002 camary LE my speedometer reads 70 mph but actualy i'm going around 67mph, and as for the odometer on meassured mile i checked on a 10 mile...


have you changed the tires or rims from the original size?? If so, your vehicle's ECU will need to be re-calibrated so that the computer will adapt to these changes.

I did not get a vehicle scheduled maintenance guide with our used car, how often do we need to get the lube and oil and how often do we need to get tire rotation. we have a 2002 ford mustang.


Oil change every 3000 miles

air filter inspect every 3000 miles // less if you in the country
Change every 12,000 miles

There is nothing to lube on a modern day car!

Wheel bearing inspect every 12,000 miles.

Fuel filter 24,000 miles or less

Tire rotation is depending on are you a lead foot driver.
Keep tabs on the rear treads.
The rear wear faster on RWD car.
The idea is keep the wear even.

Shop around,some shop is offering free tire rotation with oil change!

I rotate my tires every 6000 miles.

Alignment in 2007 Acura TL


It depends on what kind of uneven wear you are talking about if the front is wearing on the inside or outside on one side or both yes you need an alignment but if front tires are are worn about the same on the inside and outside of the tire that is not uncommon it is better to rotate the tires about every 5,000-7,000 and keep the air close to maximum as they will get you better gas mileage and wear better example if the tire says a maximum of 44psi put about 38-40psi when tires are cold and havent been ran.If those are the original tires and you have 49,000 on your car then you don't need an alignment.
