In the first place, how you know this lousy workshop?

For workshops in JB, best is you go to whose being recommended by locals, ie, your friends & relatives in JB. That's what I did - my JB friend bring me to his regular workshop in Johor Jaya and told the boss to "service my car", and it was very well done. If your Daihatsu is same model as one of those Perdoua cars, then alot of JB workshops can service it.

For workshop in SG, you will probably pay a bit more, but at least any dispute its easy to find them or seek justice.

good workshop???
if i ask the mechanic to flush coolant...does he know what it means....flushing means dispose all the coolant including the reserve and then use distilled water or rushing water to flush all the coolant out ...
why would i change the coolant without flushing?dumb rite,..

How would they wash your filter? Just rinse and install back in air box? What brand is that by the way?
