  1. I recently bought a corolla 141, which has a mileage about 60000. Then once the service time is up I decided to go to toyota lanka since previous owner has been maintaining the vehicle from the same place since day one. So once the service is done by TL they gave me some remarks of the vehicle indicating that the things should be changed/ replaced / fixed. I’m a very much newbie to this so please bear with me if these are some stupid questions. I would like to post the comments they gave me after the vehicle inspection below. please see the image which has the comments. All I need to know is in what urgency should I fix these. Around how much would I need to be spent. How serious are these fixes. Thanks.

    Spraying Oil Under The Car

    Normally at service centers apart from washing and vacuuming the car they spray oil under the vehicle. I expect this is to prevent rust. But does it really help that way? Isn't there any bad effect to rubber parts(bushes etc) cause of oil since rubbers is tend to soften because of oil.
  4. Hi all, The oil in the dipstick smells gasoline and the oil itself is pretty thin and somewhat dark brown + black color. There is no gasoline smell from the exhaust and it drips water droplets which says that the tuning is fine. What is the reason for this gasoline smell ? And Under load ( AC + Headlights + slight hill in 3rd/4th gear, mind you this is a 5speed gearbox ) I can hear a knock/misfire once in a while.The previous owner says he tuned the car for better fuel economy. I bought the car last week and only did few 10-15Km trips and most 3,4Km ones. But from the shorts trips I did the car is only doing around 6,7Kmpl ( no traffic area ). * The car is a 94 FB13 manual (GA14DS engine) 1.4Liter with Carb, 140K on the clock
  5. Hi Friends, Considering a Mitsubishi 4DR5 jeep's suspension system (Leaf Spring + Shock absorber) , What kind of Shock absorbers to worth having. Because I will need to replace them sooner and currently it has normal black color oil ones which could cost 1500-2000 each. To enhance the comfort a bit, I was thinking of getting a bit better shock may be Gas ones. So I visited m*t*rcade and that guy said, there is a rancho shock which cost around 8000 each that suits for the jeep. Its mixed with oil and gas and auto adjusted for the road condition as said. Will it worth to have them and will I get any considerable change in comfort and may be handling by having those? Or are there any brands or types of shocks that I can consider? I don't go for very expensive stuff but in between basic and most advanced is ok for me. Please reply. Thanks a lot in advance.
  6. I have sold my lancer & bought a Prius 3rd Gen (UK imported version) recently. What should be the correct engine oil viscosity for my car? Mfd. Year: 2010 Mileage: 35300 miles (approx. 56800 km) Driving conditions: weekdays very low traffic around 30 km per day / weekends long distance around 200km every weekend Yesterday the full service was done from Cl**n Pa*k and after that fuel economy reduced to 35 mpg on average. Usually it is between 50 - 55 MPG. Oil type used: Toyota 0W-20 SN Air filter replaced Oil filter replaced What could be the issue?
  7. Hi Guys, I need to do the service of my car (ES8 2002 EXI Auto 1.5) which has done 120,000 kms. The previous owner has used Mobil super 1000 X2 15W-40 but the agent recommends Havoline. Should I use the same oil which is Mobil or should I shift to Havoline. I have read some posts of the AL and some people say 15w-40 is too thicker and recommend (x)w-30. Also I like to know good ATF for my car but I don't know the brand of the ATF which is used currently. Thanks in advance

    4 X 4 Oil Change

    Hi I got a l200 4x4, I am planning on doing a oil change, is it necessary to change the oil filter every 5000km or is it every 10000km?. The vehicle has done about 55000km and is it necessary to change the diffferential oil?. Thanks
  9. Hi Just wanted to share with you my Nissan BK 12 (2002) experience of 1 year and some service information and what i used for service. Purchased last year July for rs. 1.7 million with 58,000 km on it. Seems good deal i guess. Initially i purchased this with intention to migrate to a better vehicle within 1 or 2 years coz i actually didn't had any experience with Nissan March. (I had only driven, Carina, Allion, Axela and Corolla) After purchasing it i really amazed especially regarding the the reliability, ease of handling and better fuel efficiency (13.5L on avg.) I have driven 20,000 kms so far. Some maintenance info might be helpful to you: Engine Oil: every 5000kms - Havoline 15w-40 with deposit shield(Mineral)-Rs. 2950-No issue so far. VIC Oil filer - Rs 950 -every 5000 kms I strongly suggest to go for 15w-40 or better oil(10-40, 5w-40) due to climate conditions of Sri lanka. Prices of other brands i found out just FYI (4 liter cans-Mineral oil). As at July 10th around Ja Ela area Castrol GTX- Rs. 3200: 10w-30 and 20w-50, Mobil Rs. 3400 15w-40 Valvoline Rs. 2500 20w-50 Laughfs Rs. 2450 20w-50 Automatic Transmission Oil Recommended Nissan Matic J - Use ONLY Matic J compatible fluid. I used Havoline ATF-J -- do not use Dexron III only compatible fluid . I changed through ATF exchange machine at Laughfs centre ( did not remove the oil pan. ( i had a question whether there is a filter in Automatic transmission to be cleaned at ATF change for March K12. Please update if anyone knows about this) Please share your thoughts about March K12 too.
