I've had a mechanic look me in my eye and say it will cost 30 dollars in parts to change the oil in my CB7, but since he likes me soo much, he said he wont charge me for labor. :bh :bh :bh
How can a bad thermostat cause bad mpg??? I dont think one has to do with the other.spray004 said:If it hasn't had a tune up, then I would look to replace the plug wires, plugs, cap, & rotor. Check the air filter to make sure it is in good condition. If your poor mpg persists, it could either be your O2 sensors or thermostat. Does it take a long time for your heater to kick in? If so the thermostat is your problem.

Every engine will heat up or run hotter when you put heavier loads on it. If you have any mechanical ability at all, you should be able to do a basic tune up on your own. Plugs, plug wires, cap & rotor are all super easy to do.cctgc said:my heater comes on faster when i force my engine...like go up a REALLY steep hill...or if i push it really hard...so iono...130 dollars...wow...i live in los angeles in the diamond bar/walnut area...anyone noe any good places?
