Engine Performance problem
2000 Dodge Intrepid 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 589000 miles
I've had my '00 Dodge Intrepid ES since '05. Bought used w/37000 mi. Now have close to 60K. Gas Mileage is decreasing steadily, usually drive 15 mi. Roundtrip to work 4 days/week. Weekends usually 10 mi. At most. Mileage is suffering. Average on car trip computer is around 20/gal. Used to get close to 270 miles/tankful, now it's barely 210. Concerned about ethanol. What can I do presently to increase my mileage? Tuneup, sparks, wires? At 60K miles? Know about hypermiling, but it's not that important to me to try this. Will tuneup immediately help w/mileage? Another unrelated question now. My gas gauge on dashboard spikes up and down when I have a full tank of gas. What is this problem and how expensive can it get? Don't have lots of extra money in the bank to fix this. Please advise. Thanks.
have the same problem?
