Hi Mr Ivan,

 

Please check the engine lubricant used for your very last servicing. Was there a change on the engine oil viscosity index specifications? And please check the engine oil filter used for your last servicing. Pull the Dip stick out for the Engine Oil leveling check. 

 

Did experience anymore abnormally driving beside having those engine noise? Did you change to a new Engine Lubricant (different from as usual used) ? Check and let us know what Engine Oil you used and the engine oil viscosity index,

 

Please enlighten us with your Carmake as well. 

 

Cheers and we awaits for you reply Sir! :)

some WS charge diagnosis/checking fee. i been to motor aire in sin ming to check on my air con. just a simple 5 min check and they want to charge me $40.

Hi there, please have a check on the ATF fluid level and also you might be facing bad transmission sensors. Please get to DM and we can do an diagnostic scan on your ride. We will be able to retrieve the fault code if any and work on the problem.  

 

Hope to hear from you soon. If you have any fault signal, please PM us. 

 

Cheers!

Hi Sir,

 

We think it's only fair to pay for the diagnosis check when a OBD machine is used to determine any fault code, if not any diagnosis should be just complimentary. For DM, we don't charge for any Air Con problems diagnosis. We will carefully relate problems faced and rectifications repairs will be recommended to our customers. Repair cost will able to be given and no hidden cost at the end of any repair works.  

 

Many workshops had invested in the OBD (stands for On-Board Diagnostic) Machine and it's not cheap, so in order to be fair to them, whenever they use it for any customers to determine or rectify any fault code, they might want to collect a Diagnosis Fees - it's just the same as a medical Practitioner collecting consultation fees.

 

Workshops need to protect themselves and have the rights to collect any diagnostics fees if they are able to determine the fault of a problematic vehicle, be it how long it takes; even if it's just a 5 min job. Always remember that they spent thousands to get the OBD machine in order to serve you professionally. 

 

Hint : Always check for cost concern if any OBD checks will to be performed. It's only fair for you to pay a Diagnosis check fees at a reasonable rate for the service. If they wanted to charge you without upfront telling you, THEN you might want to have a debate in such situations. 

 

Cheers bro!

Diagnosis checks for air-cons are typically free. But free things not neccessarily good, nor neccessarily bad.

 

There was once, my air-con not cold. I went to a air-con shop to ask about the problem. He checked my gas level, say its fine.

Then told me that my air-con needs chemical wash servicing. Told me to touch a hose (forgot which one) which was very hot and told me that its hot cos my compressor is over-worked. Without the chemical wash, my compressor will up lorry in few months. Free advice, but chemical wash is $250. I told him I will consider.

 

Then I went to another air-con workshop. I asked him why my hose so hot. He said "If your hose not hot means your air-con spoilt already". Then he helped me top up gas. Less than $20 (forgot exact amount). Problem solved.

I'm driving a Subaru Forester 2.5XT, SH9.

 

Steering wheel keeps turning slightly anti-clockwise when driving (when I'm not holding on to it).

When braking, it turns strongly anti-clockwise.

 

Kindly advise.

Hi dearest,

 

Only a few possible problems to your situations faced, BUT must be determined and confirmed physically at our workshop. 

 

1> Worn Tyres - Uneven wear

2> Underarms giving way

3> Absorber worn/leak

4> Alignment out. 

5> Steering Rack 

6> Drive Shaft

 

These are the possible problems. Cheers!

Hi DM

I am driving a Honda Stream.

I hope I am not being ultra sensitive to a sound that I can hear whenever I start to cruise above 80km/h.,, it is a subtle "wong..Wong..Wong..wong" sound that comes below my carriage.

First I thought it was from my old tyre, but the sound still exists even after I have change my tyres.

Went to my regular WS,I mentioned about wheel bearing but they brushed off the possibility even without checking. Absorber checked and it is still in good condition. At the end, nothing was diagnosed and they just carried out the normal servicing.

Hence, not impressed by their technical knowledge or rather the effort and attitude towards their customer's car.

Will really appreciate your expertise here.

Thank you and merry Xmas to all staffs in DM.

Cheers.

Most likely wheel bearing, as I have personally encountered this sound which happens above a certain speed.
