    How problematic is VW's 7 speed DSG?

    I would ask the Salesman about how the 2+3 warranty works. Then ask a VW owner who had owned a VW pass the manufacturer's warranty period and is now covered by Allianz. How is Allianz handling claims? What are the terms and conditions of claims? Is there such a thing as minimum claim amount...

    which tyre you will recommend to your friend?

    I think he likes his friend here. If not he would not come to the forum to ask. The consideration now is 'how much' he likes his friend. If he likes him A LOT, then.....otherwise.....There's a possibility he's actually asking for himself but a bit shy and worried of how others would think of...

    Proton GSC Spied!

    Overall, good-looking. Despite the negative comments, Proton designers at least know how to 'borrow' the good designs from other manufacturers. More concern with the engine.

    Myvi 1.5 problem while travel long distance.

    vr2turbo, I get your argument. From my personal experience with Toyota's T-IV ATF was that it's not that lasting. It's good for 20k kms thereabout. Beyond that, my car felt sluggish. This feeling is obvious when driving long journeys. I don't believe it's synthetic-based. Any recommendation for...

    Myvi 1.5 problem while travel long distance.

    The Lubegard additive is compatible with Toyota T-IV that you are using. If you're afraid of which Lubegard ATF additive to use, the safe bet is to use their LUBEGARD Platinum Universal ATF Protectant.

    Myvi 1.5 problem while travel long distance.

    If your gearbox is still shifting down reasonably quick when going uphill or overtaking then it's hasn't got 'lazy' because of ATF overheat. I would say all AT cars has plumbing to the radiator to cool down the ATF. Now this leaves the engine oil to worry about. Use higher viscosity oil like...

    ae111 headache problem

    If it's the distributor, the engine will crank but will die immediately you release the ignition key. Most likely is the starter. Replace it totally with a new one. Try not to use recond or serviced unit.

    The Engine Oil Discussion Thread

    There are so many automotive oil brands out there in the market it's mind-boggling. You can't possibly put all the brands in the poll.

    Recommendation Engine oil for Myvi

    To make an oil multi-grade, viscosity index improvers are added into the formulation. A real SAE 10W40 are more costly to make partly due to the VII and additive package used for this viscosity are generally more expensive compared to SAE 10W30. This comparison is true in those days when, say 15...

    Engine Oil Change

    Amsoil is sure an OTAI Oil. Pretty new to our market though it's got many loyal users in the States who'd vouch it's the best synthetic oil money can buy. As with any oil remember to check oil level occasionally and top up when necessary.

    Stolen car in Batu Lanchang, Penang

    0w-40 vs 5w-40?

    viscosity is viscosity. at the end of the day, it's up to the film strength that counts. going from 0W40 to 5W40 is fine because in our tropical weather we don't have to bother too much about the 0 and 5 visco no.

    hard to shift to 2nd gear

    Seems like there's a lot of negative feedback on the Redline MT-90. Personally, a friend's Civic with LSD also experience hard shift especially when it's cold. Noticeably the 2nd gear. According to him, the issue didn't surface immediately when he first poured in the MT90. It was a gradual...

    Inspira any problems ????

    Engine-wise, it is my opinion you should not face much of an issue with it since it's the tried and tested Mitsu engine. You just need to pay more attention to the gearbox since it's a CVT. Interior fit quality is good for a local car but the inherent quality of the material used is yet to be...

    hard to shift to 2nd gear

    It's the the gear oil incompatible with the synchros causing hard shift. Check whether your gear box calls for GL-4 or GL-5 spec oil. Bear in mind that a gearbox that calls for GL-4 must not use GL-5 spec oil due to the EP content of GL-5 oil wears out the synchros. Revert to 75W90 that is GL-4...

    Cleaning Stained Headlights with Autosol

    I find Autosol too coarse. For badly stained or aged covers, you'll noticed a big improvement from afar. Furthermore Autosol don't leave a protectant. What I've done is use a #2000 grit sandpaper to sand it lightly. Never apply brute force. In fact I purposely use "used" #2000 grit paper because...

    Another GTR crashed

    Negligence on the part of the owner. Now that this news is public, insurance will reject claim application for sure. Not many GTR35 around. Block plate no. oso useless. One application submitted for a total loss claim for a 35 in the near future will raise suspicion.
