Buick Roadmaster Repair Question
RAPID DROP IN GAS MILEAGE
filter. Any ideas?
I might have found part of the problem with my gas mileage. We replaced the brake pads and than the car started smelling hot by the wheels. We checked the rotor and it needed to be replaced. Put a different set of new brake shoes just to be safe. It smelled hot again. We have now determined the calipers are stuck and we are going to replace those. In this process we also discovered my front tire was very bad and we replaced the tires. I am assuming that with the calipers sticking the brakes are dragging and this would be causing some of the gas mileage problem. I will have to see after we get things finished.

Is it heating up prperly?
The thermostat could be faulty, not closing fully, and letting coolant constantly flow through.
That would make it run very rich all the time, like it was warming up, and you'd get horrible mileage.
