For me it was about 30K (Crank Position Sensor - $110 part), but I have kept the thing going with small part replacement so far (now at 73K). Repairs included blower fan repair (remove, clean, lube and reinstall, no part cost), fog light lens ($28 at junkyard), stereo replacement (broken tape deck replaced with new Sony w. CD changer - $350), door panel popped off (replaced plastic fasteners - about $5). My 99 3.5 suffers from the flickering headlight problem (a new alternator supposedly fixes this - about $180 part), which I am seriously thinking about, but haven't done yet, and the dual climate control hot driver/cold passenger problem (no fix works that I have found). SOme people swear by these cars, others swear AT them.

Does a crack air filter hose reduce gas mileage?

Yes. The hose is there to give your engine fresh air and helps the engine breathe more efficiently, and therefore run more efficiently. The drop in mileage will not be dramatic, but in the long run, this can cause more problems than reduce gas mileage. If you're not confident changing the hose yourself, any Toyota certified mechanic will be happy to do it for you.

What brand of car is the most economic?

In my opinion, Toyota offers the best overall value. In the production line, of course manufacturers will offer the best ones that would give you more mileage. But, after buying a vehicle, its brand wont really matter for the mileage it could give you. Size of the cars can also vary its being economic. Well, of course, you just have to find some difference with the space and safety test grade. Cars that are properly maintained and serviced can give you more mileage along with some extra driving tips. Proper driving can also give you more mileage in a way that you run your car at the way that it is not overdone. Too much weight, to much rpm, old oil, improper tire pressure can give you a decrease for a mileage. But for now, small cars branded with Smart or Toyota can give you good mileage.

Why does a 1991 Ford Taurus transmission blow fluid past the front seal when driven a far distance?

Ford had internal design problems with a lot of their auto transmissions. Some would last the life of the car, other's would give out with low mileage on them. Transmission shops will put replacement ones in those cars but they still have the design problems. Essentially lemons straight from the factory. Needs a front seal. Worn out from mileage.
