Any idea how to solve the problem? Q: Im very happy with my new 2011 Mazda 3 Neo except for the requirement for six-monthly services to keep my warranty. My wife drives a 2010 Mitsubishi Lancer and Mitsubishi specifies 12-month services, as do most cars today. Making things worse is that Im an ultra low-mileage driver, around 4000km annually. My dealer says it is Mazdas conditions, which Im fully aware of, but not happy with. Michael, e-mail. A: Mazdas service interval is every six-months/10,000 km and while that might be more frequent than most other makes, servicing is what keeps our cars in tip-top shape and I wouldnt recommend you vary your service routine away from the Mazda recommendation. Doing that while the warranty is still in effect could become an issue if and when you had a warranty claim. Q: I am thinking about purchasing my Dads wifes 2005 Nissan Maxima and converting it to LPG, but I am concerned about doing it when the manufacturers recommendation is to run it on 95-octane or better fuel. Of course Nissan will not condone LPG being used on any of its vehicles, even if out of warranty. Dean Womersley, e-mail. A: First, you need to put Nissans attitude to running its cars on LPG into context. Nissan doesnt design or test its cars on LPG, so it has no knowledge of the impact. If it supported LPG, Nissan would, in effect, be taking on the responsibility for what might happen should you convert to LPG, so they advise against it. Its actually got little to do with whether or not their cars would happily run on LPG or not. You will have trouble finding a certified kit for the conversion. Due to low demand for converting the Maxima, kits havent been developed. Q: Does the G6 motor in my 2004 B2600 Mazda Bravo have a timing belt or timing chain? Waren Kain, e-mail. A: It has a chain. Q: Rainwater is collecting in the drivers side floor pan of my 2002 Mitsubishi Magna wagon. Any idea how to solve the problem? Etienne, email. A: Obviously you need to find out where the water is getting in. The most likely place is around the windscreen, but it could also be through damaged or misplaced seals on the firewall. Have someone run a hose over the windscreen while you get down in the footwell and watch where the leak comes from.
