Austin, I’ve greatly appreciated the guidance you’ve given in the past and have a few questions I need to run by you. […]
I have a 2002 Honda CR-V, which received 60,000-mile service at a local mechanic’s shop recommended by a friend. They told me I had to flush all my fluids: anti-freeze cooling system flush at $136.20, brakes at $108.03, transmission at $149.69, power steering fluid at $137.65, and they did an oil change. When they were done with all the charges, it was $911.69
I have a 2004 Ford Explorer XLT 6 Cyl auto with 56,000 miles. Gas mileage is about 16 MPG vs. 17 MPG before. Recently put Goodyear Fortera triple treads on. I am not overly concerned. I never had any major work done, including tune-ups.
My car needs a tune up BUT I am on a tight budget, would it hurt my car to drive it like this for awhile until I can get my money togther?
