  1. I am also looking to get a new horn for my car. Most of new horns comes in pairs of 2. Low and High. what is the method to fix them with the existing single wire harness? Will I be able to do it myself? Is a relay needed to do it?
  2. yes I would love to read some comments on this as I will be sailing towards uncharted waters.
  3. Most service stations do ask the owners to do a ATF change at 40k. My car is coming towards 40k next service, So they already has mentioned it to me. Anyway, Is there a need to change the coolant at this point? To my knowledge it should be around 80k or something if needed right? Because I remember they mention about changing coolant at 40k too which I think is not necessary.
  4. Guys, I am sure most of you might have invested in assets hoping for financial growth and freedom. What are your investing experience so far? How about CSE? Any other assets? I am hoping to do some investing as a beginner but must be cautious especially in these times. your sincere inputs are much appreciated. Thanks.

      fully agreed. Once restrictions were eased it took me almost a week of driving to get my defensive driving skills back. I was feeling so dis-orientated and had a couple of close shaves. I'm a lot better now, so give it time.

      Oh yes.. I drove for a very short distance on Tuesday, and saw enough fellows who had forgotten how to use their turn signals. I saw one guy come from behind on the outside lane, and cut across in front of me with no prior warning into the inside lane and turned into a byroad.. Luckily i saw him through my figures and figured he would do what he did lol

  7. If you are looking for a game with low specs, and also if you'd love the type of game that building a career or company while playing a long time, then try King of the Road (KOR). this is actually a Truck simulator game from 2001. I played the game a long time ago for a long time and built a large scale transport company of my own. 🚚 it can be boring but fun at the same time. Also try Euro Truck Simulator 2 (ETS2) from 2012 with better graphics if you're up to simulation games. PS: All you have to do is do the deliveries of cargo in a timely manner and also you can free ride through the game map.
  8. Guys, Any recommendations for fuel/ignition system issues fixing around Kadawatha area? I am having a slight delayed start problem but not always. Checked the battery today and it was fine. So it could be something else. If you know any place to go for around Kadawatha area (or any good place you'd recommend), please let me know.
  9. Yes I'd better check them out first before coming to a full stop in the middle of nowhere. So far this occurred after driving for a while and when the engine is hot. So I guess it may not be the battery? Morning cold starts are working fine so far.
  10. Guys, I noticed a slight delay in engine start (slow cranking) about 3 times in the last week. But it did start in one push all 3 times but with a delay and almost misfired. Thing is this happened not in the early morning but in the middle of driving when I stopped for some groceries for about 10-15 min and came back. I suspected the battery but searching the internet I found there maybe problems in ignition, spark plug or anything. How should I get this checked? TIA
  11. This is the key. Always turn off the engine and refuel. I faced it only once in My Vitz 2016. As I remember I forgot to shut the engine. it took nearly 5 minutes and a start and stop update fuel gauge. If you turn off the engine and refuel, I am sure this will not occur. And this is not a problem with the car of course.
  12. Getting the plates to match the model :D (not my car)

      Better than this are the numbers like 0420 or 0666 which matches the owners personality.

      I regularly saw a white Peugeot 508 with the number 508.

      @AVANTE what do 420 and 666 have to do with the owners personality? 😬

      @varotone one's a successful businessman and another is an exorcist. 

      Both numbers display the respective good qualities of such characters!

  13. yes, Customs uses exchange rates on a weekly basis. One fixed rate for a week starting Monday.
  14. Hi, It's a Vitz 2016, I don't have a manual. I only hope this won't be a problem in the future.
  15. Hi all, I put my car to service today at Sterling Kadawatha and it's my first time there. When the supervisor asked me what oil was used earlier, I told Toyota 10W30 as that's what had in my mind. Mileage is 29K. He said it should be 5w30 according to the mileage and since 10w30 has been used earlier it is not possible to put 5w30 now. So they went ahead with 10w30. Only a while ago I called the previous place where I serviced and asked what they used. To my horror, he said he put Toyota 5W30. I called back the Sterling and informed but they have already finished the oil change. He said that won't be a much of a problem though. So nothing to worry. My question is, Is it ok to put 10w30 at this mileage? Can I or Is it wise to change to 5w30 in the next change? Through posts here in AL, I have realized that in SL, 5 or 10 will not matter so much. But due to my fault, I am concerned. Please share your opinions.
