my car is using a lot of oil

For some reason it has stopped blowing out. It only blows a small small amount of air out. That's it. Temp gauge still works but the fan speed doesn't work

Besides the dealer were can I take it to get fixed

the car has begun to stall, runs very poorly as if it wants to drop dead. we have changed out the plugs, the coil wires, fuel injectors cleaned and rebuilt with number one injector being replaced. the car is emitting raw. could it be a vvt i sensor, where is it located? does it affect the shifing of the transmission since the rpms are affected? please help. sincerly out of my wits and running out of money and patient.

Hi, so I don't know much about cars but my question is, is it normal that when I'm parked my rpm's rev up a little. And when I'm driving in the 20-40 mph range it seems as if I let off my gas pedal it seems to speed up sort of without me hitting the accelerater. I'm hoping this is not a big problem and maybe it's just that it needs to be checked for Maintenance. Also it has 74,000 miles on it. Please help me out.

only had car 20 days do the dealer respossilbe for repair

VSC OFF; Slip Indicator; Check Engine Light and possibly the Electric Power Steering Light and all came on at once and were flashing while I was cruising up a hill at about 32 mph. I have 116,000 miles on the car. I had the radio and heater on doing my normal suburban road 7 mile drive to work. I definitely lost engine power and became very sluggish, and was just trying to make it to the side of the road. After about what seemed like a minute I reached the top of the hill and all the lights went off and power came back to the engine and began to drive like normal. Any Suggestions of why this might be happening? How to prevent from happening again?

In Sept my back break pads were replaced and resurfaced. should I have to have them replaced again so soon?

a new dealer said it had to go through a $200 diagnositic check but it was probably the cpu for electric steering.

Where is the transmission seal located on a 2008 scion xb? My mechanic told me it's like a $10.00 seal, but you have to pull the front driver wheel and some other stuff off. He showed it to me when the car was up on the lift, it was a whitish seal but I can't find the exact location. My neighbor will fix it for me but we need to see where it is.

I drove my car to the nearby bank today which was approx 3 miles away from my home. When I returned home I parked the car in garage. The car has 87,500 odd miles on it. When I came back out into the garage an hour later, I could smell a heavy amount of anti-freez type solution in the garage coming from my car. Check garage floor, no leaks. A "maintenance" light assuming something engine re-lated, has been staying on longer after starting the car each time the past few days, then it disappears. Once you start the car the light should no longer be flashing and should disappear right away after driving out of garage but it stays on for about 3/4 minute. Is this something very pricey to repair?
