  1. 1. Yes, the red dot takes precedence over the yellow dot. 2. If you did a wheel balance, it doesn't matter now. The dots are there so that you have a good starting balance. This helps because the number of wheel weights that need to be added to balance the wheel is less. 3. If the valve stem isn't damaged and doesn't leak, keep it.

    Honda ES1 stutter issue

    1. They're mostly suspension repairs which are quite simple. 2. Yes, very likely to be the spark plugs or an issue in the ignition system.

    Misfires and loss of power

    If the fuel rail is loose, that's the first thing you have to get addressed. Given the error codes, it does look like one cylinder is behaving erratically.

    P0420 Hyundai Sonata H-matic

    Half a litre of oil being burnt per month is not normal. What's the mileage of the car? My advise would be to fix the oil burning problem because in your case, I believe it is contributing to the P0420. From what you have described, it could be oil clogging up your catalytic converter (explains the exhaust smell) , or a gasket leak. Even after the engine is fixed, you might continue to get the error code depending on the condition of the catalytic converter and downstream Oxygen sensor.

    Good Tyre Brand....!

    Best tyres I've ever used. Talking specifically of the RE003. They've been on my car for a couple of years now and they hold the road like crazy! Not sure if they're a bit overkill for a point A to B car that's mainly driven within city limits, because it's a performance tyre. But if you track the car or drive a car that's got decent power, then absolutely.
  6. 1. Manufacturers don't generally specify a replacement interval for timing chains. They are supposed to last as long as the engine. However, periodic inspections (say every 100K km) are advised to determine if the chain has wear or slack. Some modern cars even have wear/stretch indicators that cause a light to be illuminated on the dashboard. 2. As mentioned above, it should be lifetime with periodic inspections. Checking the vehicle workshop manual would confirm this. 3. Pretty much all modern petrol engines are interference because manufacturers try to achieve high compression ratios from smaller engines. As a user, it is important to understand that if the car has a timing belt, and if the engine is an interference type, the damage that can be caused if the belt snaps is far greater than on a non-interference type engine. Other than that, it doesn't really matter to a driver. 4. Interference

    Better DVD player + navigator

    While appreciating you sharing this information, please note that this thread is about car audio and GPS navigation, not GPS tracking. Also, 12,000 is expensive for a GPS tracker, unless you're tracking a fleet or something. There are so many cheap trackers on eBay for less than 3000. You can buy one of them and install a free app which gives all functionality.

    ## Post Whoring - Part 3 ##

    Yeah, that's just weird. As Crosswind said, maybe the papers are dodgy. Found this following a quick Google search. It has a 4B11T with an SST transmission. So it's an Evo X MR.

    ## Post Whoring - Part 3 ##

    That used to be Lasith Malinga's car if I'm not mistaken. And that's a legit Evo X. I'm not sure why the RMV information shows details of a CS1 though. I'm sure it has a 4B11T because I've seen pictures of the engine bay. Can see the air intake of the 4B engine even in the first photo.

    Lancer EX Running Repairs and Maintenance

    Pretty sure the CVT still has the mesh filter at the bottom of the oil pan which is on the underside of the car and not vertical like the conventional auto.

    Hi @AdamHar1, You should rephrase your question because it's not clear what you mean. Also use a more meaningful topic title.
