• Can I drive a car 12,000 miles without an oil change?

    Best answer: It depends on the "health" of your car, the conditions in which you drive, and the type of oil you used for the last oil change.
    Personally, I think getting oil changed regularly is a lot cheaper than a repair that is needed because you tried to cheap out on the oil changes.

    hi! so my check engine light came on about a week ago and the same day i took it by autozone to have them run a diagnostic test on it. it came back saying i needed a gas cap, so i replaced the gas cap and left. i drove it around for the next half hour or so and the light still hadn’t turned off. the next day it still wasn’t off so i went back to autozone to have them look at it again. he explained to me that every car has a “drive cycle” and i would need to drive it several miles before it would turn off. 2 days ago i drove it on a 45-minute drive and it turned off about 35 minutes into the drive and it stayed off until this morning when i was on my way to work. it just randomly turned back on. normally i wouldn’t really care as long as my car was driving alright, but i live in tennessee and to re-register your car every year, you have to go through emissions. i’m assuming if my check engine light stays on it won’t pass emissions, and i have to re-register by the end of this month🙃 just for clarification it’s a 2007 nissan altima, and it has 221,000 miles. any help would be greatly appreciated! thank you!

    I feel like the worlds biggest idiot. I probably am. I’ve had my car since March 2018 and most of the time I’ve had it, my boyfriend would fill up my gas but yesterday I was rushing after I got off work and had to go get my hair done. Went to the gas station because I had a little less than halfway left on gas. I thought for sure you put diesel in regular cars. So I put it in there till it was full and after I was done, I started the car and headed to my hair appointment...like 5-7 mins later, just up the street from the gas station, my car shut off. I tried to restart it but it would not start back up. It would make the sound like it was going to start up but didn’t. So I got a tow truck and he took me and my car to my local dealership. Unfortunately the service department was closed for the day but I still got to talk to someone and he told me that if my spark plugs needed replacing and all that stuff my estimate would be a little over $600. I wanted to just stab myself. Well my question is, based on what I told you, how much damage could I have done to my car? It’s a 2018 Mitsubishi Mirage hatchback. Has about 4000 miles on it

  • Burnt clutch smell, please help?

    Best answer: At least if you stalled it the clutch disc isn't fried yet. Of course it's going to smell for awhile.
    Smarten up unless you want to remember what it's like to ride a bicycle.
