Is it ok to drive a new car on a long trip within the first 100 miles put on the car?

My 2011 Honda Fit Owner's manual says:

During the first 600 miles

  • Avoid full throttle starts and rapid acceleration.
  • Avoid hard braking during the first 200 miles.
  • Do not change the oil until scheduled maintenance time.

--------------------------------------------------------------------

Well in a way no, You should never stress a new car and drive that far in the first 100 miles.

I disagree. Most new engines nowadays have been 'run in' to a certain degree and doing a 100 mile or 200 mile trip or whatever distance you choose, should have no detrimental effect on the vehicle at all, as long as you don't go over the recommended service intervals.

My research shows you may be able to. But you must ask the person who is selling the car incase!!!!!!

look people,running in a fresh engine is not some kind of voodo black magic like some talk it up to be!!!...it does take a few heat cycle's(heating up than cooling down) for the engine to settle in,but i wouldn't worry too much..if you like your engine an care about it,use running in light weight oil,about 15w/40 running in oil first up as it contains no friction modifiers an low levels of dispersants/detergents that will really help good bedding in...change oil an filter after about 500 KLM/300 miles...then use what ever is recommended by the manufacturer but do the second oil an filter change at 200KLM/1200 miles,than by the book, (some may not allow running in oil to be used/im not sure on that one?,but i am sure it's the best for the engine) don't drive like a grandma,(my Mum is a grandma an own's a WRX,don't dive like her ether haha:P) you have to give it a little bit of juice,if you don't the piston rings won't bed in correctly,but not too much load,like flat stick/in a gear too high as the rings will not like it whether running in or not,don't rev the .... out of it,or at the same RMP for too long as piston bore,cam shaft glasing may happen.an make sure the oil is clean an changed by the book,use good fuel.....always!!!...other than that..just use the car.....Mech9YbyTrade . The engine will need water every 50 miles.

I would suggest always read the car's manual first! I remember we went on a trip with my relative who wanted to impress his girl that he just met on (dream marriage) and his brand new toyota had troubles, and we end up getting a car rental.

Would it be worth it to change an automatic to a manual in a 1999 Honda Civic and how much would it cost?

no it would no be worth the cost to change you would need to install a clutch pedal a hyd master cylinder and slave cylinder for the clutch as well as change the fly wheel on the motor and possibly the starter as well install a shifter and linkage it would run into about 1500 dollars or more to do this conversion. most people go from standard to automatic it is a little less things that get changed but on a front wheel drive it would be very costly.

AnswerSaying that it isn't worth it is a very inappropriate answer. You have to weigh what you want from the vehicle against the costs. Yes, it will run him probably $800-$1500 or less, but if you choose to have a highly performance tuned engine, then having a manual transmission for both it's increased strength and control of the vehicle might be considered "worth it". AnswerIt would be more cost effective to sell your auto and buy a manual. Answerno Honda "performance" engine is going to be in an automatic car to begin with. Sell the car and buy a manual tranny car and be happy. AnswerIt depends on how customized the car is. If the guy's put a lot of time and money into fixing the car up and he's generally happy with it (except for the transmission), then yeah, changing out the trans wouldn't be unreasonable. If the car's white with stock interior, definitely just trade it in on one with a manual. Besides, if he tries selling the car and it is really Fast and Furious, the people who want a car like that are gonna take one look and think the same thing the poster is: "what's this automatic ****?"

The procedure's simple to understand: buy a wrecked car, park it next to yours and transfer everything under the hood, plus the pedals, shifter, computer and (probably) console, from the wreck to your car. Figure two to three months if you've got plenty of tools.

Answer

It is worth it imo i did it on my 03 civic ex and cost my 400 dollars to do it and i installed everything myself. but if you don't like the auto go on civic forums and find used parts that's the best way to go. U can always find good deals on parts.

Fuel Filters
Fuel Pumps
Chevy Camaro Z28

When changing the fuel pump does anything else need to be replaced?

If you change the fuel pump you may as well change the fuel filter at the same time. There is usually a sock on the pump that should be changed as well as the filter. If the sending unit lines are rough or the tank is rough, you may want to do them while it is down(assuming your'e dropping the tank). Did you change fuel pump and not solve the problem? If so it could have been a blown fuse, loose connector, bad fuel pump relay, or bad ECM (Engine Control Module. You can use a light bulb and test for voltage on fuel pump fuse. You can put your finger on relay and have an assistant turn on and off ignition switch feel to see if you can feel it clicking as the relay coil energizes and de-energizes...if you feel it the ECM is good, if not it is bad. If you feel it clicking then the relay contacts are not in the best shape, but however use a screwdriver handle and tap relay while assistant cranks the engine it should start and run again. Anyway good luck!!

What is the horsepower of a Chevy Camaro RS 2 8L V6?

The horsepower for a 2.8 V6 is 135, torque 18082-84 2.8s have about 115 bhp; 85s and later got fuel injection for 135 bhp

i belive it is 210 horse

i actually reseached your engine and here are the exact specifics.

Engine Configuration V Cylinders 6 Aspiration/Induction Normal Displacement 173.00 CU IN. | 2835.5 cc. | 2.8 L. Horsepower 125.00 BHP (92 KW) HP / Liter 44.6 BHP / Liter Bore 3.50 in | 88.9 mm. | 0.1 m. Stroke 2.99 in | 75.9 mm. | 0.1 m. Fuel Type Gasoline - Petrol

The Chevy Camaro 2.8L specs around 135 horse.

its gotta be less than 145

The 3.4L 1993 camaros engine is rated at about 160hp so this one Id say is around 125-135.

Its not 210hp, that's the v8 you're thinking of. I don't know what the HP actually is tho ... sorry:(

Why is a stolen car impounded after being found?

Answer

Stolen cars are impounded for a few reasons. One would be that the Police might want to check it for finger prints. Another reason that the car would be impounded is if it was stolen, and the police think it was stolen too easily, they might want to check for Insurance Fraud and last but not least, they might impound a car while trying to find the owner.

How do you wire a wiper switch and motor on a 1980 Camaro z-28?

I am troubled with the same problem. For reference I have a Haynes auto repair manual for this make and model. It has provided a basic diogram, from the switch to the wiper motor. I haven't yet solved this problem, but I believe the answer has something to do with grounding the replacement motor. Or the switch itself. I have found that the motor opperates through hi and low settings while testing (pluged in and laying between the engine and break booster). However when I install the unit on the cowl the function is less than desireable. I realize this is only a partial answer or guess at best. So if anyone has something else to contribute it would be appreciated.

Why would home heater not work?

If it is gas, the most common problem is the thermocouple. This is what keep the gas valve open. It is a small silver looking wire, 1/8 of an inch diameter that runs from the gas valve to the pilot light. The pilot flame should touch the end of the thermocouple. Of course it can be a lot of things. Power, there can be a fuse at the furnace that may have blown. There will be a box with a light switch and a screw in fuse. The switch may have been thrown.

Car Starting Problems
Chevy Tahoe
Chevy Camaro Z28

What does it mean if when you turn the key to start your car it starts but then within a second or two it goes off?

Do a bit more research. Unplug one plug wire and set it up close to ground. If you can still start the car, watch it. If the spark stops then the car dies it's electrical.

If not I'd guess it's a fuel problem. Had something similar happen to a 70 Stigray. Bits of rust in the fuel system had collected in the filters. They would allow initial pressure, but clog up quickly as you drove it. Worsened every time you filled it up and stired the tank.

If you can, check your fuel pressure. Keep in mind a fuel injected car can run 80psi fuel pressure! It may be able to get the initial pressure required, but not be able to keep up with the flow demands under load.

First off I'd say replace your fuel filters. It's probably time anyway.

I wouldn't recommend doing both tests in the same day. :)

When you start it again try holding the key in the start positon when it starts

What does tune port injection mean?

Tuned port injection simply means that all the intake "tubes" are equal in length. This same terminology is used for exhaust headers, tuned headers have equal length tubes from the head to the collector that attaches to the exhaust pipe. That explains the sometimes crazy looking bends on them.

How do you change oxygen sensors on a 1995 camaro z28 57 liter engine?

get a O2 sensor socket and do it just like a spark plug. Make sure the engine is at normal operating temperature though, if not you might damage the manifold.

Sadly, its not too easy. With my 97 SS, i have dual cats so i have 4 O2's total. Im not sure about your 95, but when you get to it, be sure to have a LOT of extensions (access is really tight) and have a few breaker bars/pipes to turn the rachet.
