    Taiwan: Car Rental (Taipei)

    Thinking of doing a self-drive come March in Taiwan from Tao Yuan to Chaiyi and then KaoHsiung Few Questions 1. I tried Rentalcars but now their website under countries don't have Taiwan? I can only find AVIS online though their own website, any other recommendations? 2. If I would like to visit night markets in Kaohsiung, it is difficult to find car parks near the road sides or do they have designated open air carparks? 3. As I plan to arrive after dark around 8pm, is it difficult to drive out from Tao Yuan at night all the way south? Seeking advice

    A/C pro air con sealant

    i put the dye liao, outside cannot see any leak at the joints or condensor but I can smell something inside the cabin after I put the dye, I heard in this case most likely its the cooling coil leak, but repair cost about $1000 plus because of the extensive labor to dismantle the dash to do the job, I heard using sealant sometimes after a while can clogged even the compressor hence a bit scare to try leh

    A/C pro air con sealant

    Anybody tried the above product or similar products before It only works for small car A/C leaks, but perhaps worth while if the small leaks happen at the evaporator (aka cooling coil) which might require dash board dismantling to install a new coil

    When you exit Thailand back to Malaysia, counter 8 to return the car import form is after the immigration is done You still need to signed physically a book, just like book in/ book out in NS last time However, the officer was very rude to me when I returned the form, I asked her kindly in English if she will return me any type of confirmation she said in Thai something like, "buzz off, don't disturb me talking to me colleague'' (yes, she was happily chatting with someone at the counter) I was worried because at the import custom counter when I was going into Danook, some Malaysian folks told me they were made to pay the 10,000Bht penalty for failing to return the form upon exit back to Malaysia previously It is quite easy to miss it actually, cause there is no barrier, just drive though
