Particularly in the mornings or when the car is cold, moving the shifter is harder than it should be. Once the car warms up, no problems.
Question Asked: Poor gas mileage
January 09, 2010, 10:41 AM
Had this vehicle since new...gas mileage degraded from 24-26 mpg to 18-20 mpg (20%!!!)over last year. The 24-26 mpg has been the gold standard for 8+ years on this vehicle (for me). Recently took a trip and hwy mileage was best ever: 28-30 mpg! Now back to commuting to work and returned to 18-20 mpg. No change to fuel used, EGR replaced, fuel system cleaned/decarbed, new O2 sensor, tire inflation good, etc, with no change. Motor mounts were replaced about 8 months ago and this fixed it for about 2 months-then back to lower mpg. HELP!
