    Any experience with colonial motors

    Wish guys at the workshop where I get my car maintained read the AL forum... But anyway, most of the time an oil burning engine can be overhauled to perfection - if Maz*a Motors didn't give you a plausible explanation for why the engine cannot be fixed, you might want to take a second opinion from someplace else. Here's a thread you might find useful:

    Honda Gp1 hybrid.

    Almost everyone who did the sludge cleaning had to do it again after some time as this was an issue of the piston design of the engine AFAIK.

    Congratulations As for porting, you'll have to copy paste posts one by one... or you can screenshot the 4 pages and post 'em here (or in a separate thread, like this:

    Ahh, sorry for the brainfart... totally forgot non-hybrid Vezels 😛 It's a Sri Lankan thing non-hybrid Vezels are next to non-existent around here so the first thing that pops into mind when someone mentions the Vezel is - DCT!

    Suzuki Celerio 2016 or Viva Elite 2014

    Isn't it too early to get stoned I see you've been watching euro NCAP tests for the Celerio - that's not the Celerio offered in Sri Lanka. Rear passengers are much comfier in a Viva, it has a smooth automatic gearbox compared to Celerios jerky AMT gearbox which doesn't inspire confidence in driving or the longevity of the vehicle, it handles better than a Celerio and overall fit and finish is leaps and bounds ahead when it's compared to Celerios which have panel inconsistencies out of the factory!

    Well the Civic was never offered with a DCT regardless of the engine choice Sent from my Nokia 1100 using AutoLanka.com mobile app powered by Tapatalk

    Is it CVT? I don't see any mention of a chang e of the transmission. It could still be a DCT. Sent from my Nokia 1100 using AutoLanka.com mobile app powered by Tapatalk

  10. Emios is that you? Anyway, that's for a used engine - (which you have nary any idea of the condition it is in...) plus the engine isn't the only costly part that could get effed due to abuse, and one cannot rule out possible accident damage and shoddy repair jobs
  11. It would be if you bought one brand new and took proper care of it Sent from my Nokia 1100 using AutoLanka.com mobile app powered by Tapatalk
  12. Unless they weren't driven on bad roads full of potholes at low speeds... there was this vezel that used to throw out a "Transmission overheating" warning at least once every three times it was driven on this particular potholed road that was about 4-5kms long. It was sold at 40k kms.
  13. DCT technology is being used by the VAG group too, they call it "DSG". They officially introduced it in India, you can imagine what happened next https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/long-term-ownership-reviews/120881-dsg-packs-up-skoda-laura-cr140-now-dsg-fails-3rd-time.html https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/technical-stuff/163559-vw-polo-vento-dsg-gearbox-jerking-issue-edit-now-resolved.html https://www.team-bhp.com/forum/technical-stuff/181647-vw-polo-gt-tsi-dsg-failure-quoted-rs-1-17-lakhs-repair.html

    Guess who bought a Lancer EX

    It's not a part of the service, just a precaution to prevent drains from clogging with dead leaves and whatnot I get it done once every year.
