    Good Mechanics/ Technicians/ Workshops

    Engine tune up - Auto lovers, Gampola. 0779213155. Highly recommended for tune ups as I've done mine a year ago. Did a great job. Cleaned the MAF sensor, throttle body, spark plugs, inlet manifold, intake valves, fuel injectors & egr. It took almost 6 hours to do the job & it cost half the price wt they charge at Toyota Lanka for a tune up. Repairs - Wasana Care, Welisara. A good place for all minor repairs. I've repaired my suspension systems & changed the engine mounts, spark plugs & check engine light issues. Very reasonable pricing with good work.
  2. Toyota Lanka is a very expensive place to start with. I only go there to buy the genuine parts. Been there twice for; 1. To check my suspension systems. Cost 5k. Repair estimation given apprx. 250k. I repaired it from outside for parts + labour apprx. 120k. (Front shocks, front brake disc, brake pads, powersteering rack repaired & all 4 engine mounts) 2. Had a vibration when accelerating, engine misfire, check engine light & AC not cooling . Cost 3k. Repair estimation apprx. 300k. Trust me they ddnt find the fault right. All that they wanted to knw was do i had the money to do the job. I took it to a repair center i knew. Changed the spark plugs - engine misfire done. Cost 10k. Changed the CV joints - vibration done. Parts + Labour 30k. Cooler changed - AC done. Cost 35k. Thats a total of 75k. Hope this might help! Since there were almost perfect replies given on ur issue by others.
  3. Thanks Praveen. As far as advantages the product claims it will reduce friction & wear thus helping for a smoother engine performance. In my car, yes it had made a positive feedback & am satisfied with my investment. I might not need to be using any oil additives for another year or so ( you may read abt ceratec on their website as well as its review).

    Engine tune up for allion 260 2011

    I own an Axio 141 (2007) with a 135,000km. So here are some of my knowledge on engine tune up which I've learnt on YouTube & forums along with the experience on my car. Tune up is a maintenance to make the car run RIGHT. Which is to increase performance, fuel efficiency & to reduce future repairs. 1. Changing engine oil. Change ur engine oil every 5,000 to 6,000 km. Always remeber engine oil is cheap but engine repairs are very expensive. I use 'Mobil 2000, semi synthetic 5W30' apprx 3.3 litres. I buy oils & filters at Panchikawatta (Mobil 2000 oil 1L 1200/=, VIC oil filter 1,000, toyota air filter 3,500 & cabin air filter 1,000) and i change it at a service centre for just 500/=. This way i save around 3,000 to 5,000 if i had it done at a service centre. 2. Oil additives. I've added Liqui Moly 'Ceratec' to my engine on my last oil change after lots of research on YouTube & reviews so i used abt 3.1 litres of 5W30 + 190ml of ceratec. I was pretty happy & satisfied with the results. Engine started to run alot smoother & quiter (less vibration even when starting a cold engine, quite idle plus my fuel economy has improved). This costs 3,600 yet its a long term investment which its effects might last upto another 3 or 4 oil changes. I highly recommend. 3. Filters. Its very important to change ur filters at the right intravels for optimal performance. Use OEM filters. Dont buy cheap oil & air filters to save money. Change ur oil filter on every oil change intravel and ur air filters if their dirty. Cz clean air filters helps to breathe clean uninterrupted air to the engine in return it gives performance & good fuel economy. Next is ur cabin air filter. Its very cheap so that u can change it at every oil change intravels for a cleaner A/C. 4. Throttle body & MAF sensor. This is a very simple DIY maintenance to improve cars fuel efficiency, performance & engine tune though many forgets. Just buy a Throttle body cleaner spray and a MAFS cleaner/Contact cleaner would cost 2,500 for both or less. There are plenty of videos on YouTube so plz refer before starting. Do the cleaning on every oil change intravels for keep ur car at its optimal performance. Trust me it will make a great improvement. 5. Fuel system. I've had very good experience of using Liqui Moly Injection cleaner (900/=) poured directly in to the fuel tank. Had noticeable changes in throttle response & a smoother idle with increase in fuel economy along with internally it helps to clean fuel injectors & more (I've used it before i add the ceratec so i know it made a difference, hence now with ceratec i see the same differances without it so i knw ceratec works good too! But to clean ur fuel system this cleaner would definitely helps). I suggest it to use it on ur every oil change or as the company suggests to use every 2,000km. But all i can say is that it works! 6. Spark plugs. Just check ur spark plugs at a service centre. Usually they lasts from 50k to 100k km depending on the driving conditions. So change them if needed. It only cost around 2,000 per spark plug. Hense bad spark plug means poor performance & bad fuel consumption. I changed & the results were just amazing. 7. Others. Good tyres. Right tyre pressure around 32psi. Coolant (red). Wheel alignment. Hope these would help. Good luck

    What is the best for 2.8-3.4M?

    It fails at around 100k km or less with our weather conditions. U can simply change it for around 25k to 50k.

    Fuel Efficiency

    Axio 141 (2007) [140,000kms +] 1500cc engine with a CVT transmission Petrol 92 octane City (AC on) 10 to 8 km/l Long distance (AC on) 12 to 10 km/l Expressway (AC on) 14 to 12 km/l Note: AC compressor has been replaced with a 121 motor by the previous owner hence it might have a negative effect on my cars fuel economy.
