  1. hi all... all my previous rides even till now... i have always believed in a good oil... i can imagine sludge built up in the engine and i dont want that to happen with a lousy oil used... my last 4 oil services were with OWS NA Racing... i have used before Mobile 1, Shell Helix Ultra, x-REV, spitfire, bizol, KIC oils, liquid moly,idemitsu, Castrol... etc. i have never used mineral or semi-syn oil... always fully syni & I want my car to be fed with oil from at least a company with abit of positive reputation... until lately... i read and found out about many cheap fully syn oils
  2. While changing engine oil recently, my workshop informed me that my valve cover was leaking oil and needed fixing. So a replacement part was duly procured and I took the opportunity to look at the insides of my 1NZ-FE engine: The cause of the oil leak. A perished rubber seal was the culprit. All these were meant to be one single rubber part. All shiny and slick. The oil is dark because its 10,000km old. Continued in the next post......
  3. guys, recently my car's check engine light turns On again. it happened few months ago and i got a mechanic who specialises honda car in ubi area to fix it for $280 in 5 mins. i guess i want to try and get it fix somewhere else to see if i could get it done one and for all without having to be a carrot. well, i'm driving an EK. when the engine light turns ON, sometimes it lost power on gear one. sometimes it works as fine. and sometimes, it goes back to normal after i restart engine. this problem has been a few days. today, it just doesn't turn Off after i tried to restart.

Screenshot: Speedkar99 / YouTube (Other) A Toyota Prius has joined my shared fleet in what so far is a positive Carvana experience. Since I love knowing all I can about every vehicle in the fleet I’ve been binging all sorts of Prius videos. One of the ones that I’ve come across is a detailed teardown of a high-mileage 2004 Prius engine that looks good,

  7. https://www.cnet.com/roadshow/news/gm-crate-engine-zz632-1000-horsepower/ "GM's 1,000 hp 632 cubic-inch crate engine is its largest and most powerful ever This monstrous motor clocks in at over 10.3 liters of displacement and makes more than 1,000 horsepower on pump gas without a turbo or nitrous. This 1,004-horsepower monster is the biggest crate engine GM has ever offered. They say that when it comes to making power and torque, there is no replacement for displacement. While that's slightly less true these days with super-efficient turbocharged engines and EVs, the
  8. Hi there! I have just bought a Nissan Almera 1.8 from 2004 manual transmission.

  11. The combustion engine is living on borrowed time. https://www.motor1.com/photo/5822112/2022-mercedes-maybach-s680/ A recent (and rather shocking) proposal made by the European Commission calls for the end of new ICE car sales as early as 2035. That has to be voted by the 27 members of the European Union in order for the ban to come into effect, but in the meantime, automakers will likely be forced to shave off their gasoline and diesel offerings. Why? Euro 7 regulations are inbound. Expected to come into force in 2025, the more stringent CO2 emissions will put small cars powered

  13. Hi, anyone knows where to buy the trd engine air filter? I couldn't find the right one online and the last time I replaced it was at borneo motors trd package.. I heard its reusable since like the quality is way better and it has a metallic mesh to it. Any thoughts?
  14. Hi I just change my Amazon battery less than 10 month ago from AA, however, yesterday the batt is weak and I could not start and get AA mechanical to come down and check, he managed to jumpstart and check, his reason was the car electronic fault and not the battery, the car electronic eg: Sound system, light, video camera etc are drawing current from the battery even through the car engine is off. I try to drive the car for at least 30min after he jumpstart to charge the battery. This morning my car could not start again, I am now waiting for AA to come and jumpstart again, Can s
  15. try to cut long story short- car had coolant leak, and end up is due to a crack in the engine block. however its just out of warranty by 6 mths, though mileage is still well within 100k. As servicing has always been with distributor, they agree to bring this up to the factory for an extension of warranty in order to replace the engine. but factory rejected. While they are still seeking escalation to factory, i counting my ways to seek a legal recourse because. 1. the crack in block is on the lower end, not at the side or anything. hence not due to impact. hence i thought thi
  16. With sub-micron particles continually sucked in through the filter into the engine, would it be advisable to change engine oil and the filter more often?
  17. Mercedes has been coming out with several new variants using smaller (sub 2.0L) engine for its passenger vehicle lineup of late and there seems to be no end to the trend, in view of tighter emissions and fuel economy requirements by EU and other countries. I have to admit that I am surprised when I learnt about the "new" C160 at the beginning of this year and E180 shortly after that, both having a 1.5L inline 4 turbo-charged unit under it hood, producing 129ps / 210Nm and 156ps / 250Nm respectively. And the naive me thought these are the limits. I am wrong, as the CLS260 ha
  18. Just curious, if there are some engine oil left-over from a car's servicing, can it be used to top-up a diesel engine ? (e.g. Shell Helix Ultra 5w-40)

  20. Hi all, anyone experience light clicking or clattering sound in their auto car when during light acceleration? The sound is very much like a manual car accelerating and upshift of gear when the speed for that gear have not been attained.
  21. Hi all, Need your advise on this; I did a servicing recently at a workshop in Ubi area. Decided to check the engine oil about 3-4days later, found that it was dark. Didn't think too much of it until my colleague saw and commented that the color was too dark. Compared his over 10years old car engine oil which was due for servicing, and the colors actually look similar. I contacted the workshop about this, and the boss and worker start telling me that the engine oil color is normal. They specifically say that only a clean/overhaul engine will have clean engine oil... It actually sounds bulls
