Is it possilbe for a intake gasket to be bad. Sometimes the power is low, but when I get up to speed I have no problems.

basically the car has a delays start after a few hours of non use, than after I start it once if i turn it off and on again it starts up instantly. This has been happening for sometime. Than yesterday the check engine light came on. I got the code run and it came up as an evap leak... any help would be greatly appreciated

and going over small rises as slow speed. Does my car have sway bar bushings that need lubricaction? Does it require ball joint lubrication?

I push the rear window defog button and the radio gets all static. is there a filter or something that needs to be replaced? i have 153k on it.

My mazda etude 1.8 litre sedan 1995 model is very heavy on petrol. It does about 430km on a 50litre tank and I do not know how to fix this problem. I bought it recently and it has had the same consumption since. It has 244000km on the clock. I serviced it recently, changing the spark plugs, oil and air filters but it is still doing 430km on a full tank. The timing belt makes a slight squealing sound and the car sometimes jerks a bit during acceleration when I am driving on the highway. Could this be what is causing the high fuel consumption? What could be causing the jerking and what should I do to get a fuel consumption rate of at least 12km on a litre.

Car won't start, but there is a noise that sounds like a high speed electric motor rotation. I think I need a new starter, but am tired of being over charged for repairs. How much should it cost to replace my starter?

my fuel rail has scratches on it

Its been doing it right after I bought. So about a couple of days now. Only does it when easing on and off the gas. If you hit the gas hard it doesn't do it. Changed plugs, wires,cleaned idle air control. What else could it be? SOS

I own a 2000 Monte carlo SS it has 50,000.miles on it.
is this a common problem with oil leaking into the radiator and intake . I have found there is oil in the radiator also hose's are gummy coming from engine.
And is this a easy fix if you where to do it youself?
thanks

Car runs fine with just a small hint of maybe a skip. Checked radiator and overflow and found what seems to be oil in both. Car seemed to be burning lots of fuel during usage. Thought of head gasket but exhaust seems to be o.k. NO SMOKE.

Do you have instructions for replacing fuel injectors?

My MKZ has 30,000Miles. In the last 2 mos., it has failed to start on the 1st, 2nd, 3rd tries, but then does. Prior to this problem, my battery died and the dealership replaced it. When I took it in this time, they tried resetting the code on the key switch thinking this was the problem. Now, they think it is a short in the ignition switch causing the problem. So far, my bill has been around $375.00 for battery and the labor for the key code etc. They are saying that this new short problem will be around $699.00. What do you think ? Thank you,
