Help! My 95 Toyota Corolla just required a new left drive axle for $220 last month but the engine still runs rough. The mechanic (who I trust) put industrial strength fuel cleaner (90%) in to smooth out the engine and it ran like a top for about a month or so.

My 95 Corolla has always needed a tune up shortly after being serviced. But now, my husband is driving it 40 miles back and forth to work, as the lowest mpg car, but it is hesitating and missing. There is no obvious cause, except if he stops at a light or has to climb a hill, it is barely able to make it up and over. He has changed the spark plugs, air ...

The owners manual recommended using premium gas but due to high gas prices (and my husbands dislike of unnecessarily parting with any dollar) we have occasionally run the car on mid range (89-91 Octane). Now when we run ...

Our 2007 Ford Focus is only getting an average of 18 mpg - this was tested and confirmed by a local dealership. We took it to the dealership we purchased the car from who claim they did "nothing" to it, but the mileage went up to 24 mpg. From there, it started dropping again - 21, 20, 18.8... Last weekend we started smelling gas (3 different days), ...
