Q: Used vehicle inspection, issues.

asked by on

I recently bought a 99 izuzu rodeo. Looks great, runs great and is clean all over. Going to have a shop inspection. Aftermarket radio doesnt work, back hatch wont unlock or open, weird electrical with door lock button. 160k. I want to replace all fluids, filters gaskets the works. Shocks stuff like that. I think it has a lot of life left. Any opinions? Or recommendations?

My car has 160540 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Check over the vehicle for all safety items on the chassis and cabin compartment. Make sure that the vehicle is safe to drive in any condition. I recommend that if you have to replace any suspension or steering components or both to have an alignment performed afterwards. Check the history report on the vehicle to see how often the vehicle was serviced. This will give you an estimate on how long the vehicle will last on the conditions that it is currently in. If the vehicle is in great shape and runs great at 160K miles, then the vehicle was well taken care of. If you need further assistance with your vehicle maintenance, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.

Q: I made changes to the air filter on my car

Hi there. As long as the air is still being properly filtered and the air filter is properly sealed, then you are fine. This can give you better air flow which increases the efficiency of the engine.
