    Lets make this constructive and benefit to all owners.

    Lots of questions and doubts over what is cost and how to maintain a Skyline
    (GTR, GTT, GTS, hybrid GTT-R, GTS-R, etc..)


    Here's a breakdown.

    How often shall i change my Engine Oil?
    What Engine Oil?

    How often shall i change my Gear Box (Transmission) Oil?
    What Gear Box Oil?
    What Transfer Case Oil?
    Front Diff Oil?
    Back Diff Oil ?

    How Often to change Brake Fluid and what type to use?
    What Brake Pads?

    Power Steering Oil?

    HICAS (4 wheel steering) Oil? What to use?

    let's discuss.

    wow! i've always thought our car filled up at 60 litres but its 72 litres actually?can anyone clarify this?

    i nvr wait until the lights came up(but i nvr know as well coz i took off my dash and noticed one bulb missing, so i take it as the fuel low lights)so i always refill when my metre goes to E.At E point, i can only refill until about 52 liters, so i take it 8 litters are roughly the emergency reserve. So..if its 72 litters then i can safely assume i still have 20 litters in my car when i pump at point E?

    Ur car 65L :)

    GTR32 - 72L
    GTSt32 - 60L
    R33 GTR/GTSt - 65L
    R34GTR/GTT - 65L

    Std reserve fuel tank in most car will relocate MIN 3L. So with skyline STD mod, should clock arnd 30KM range when the light pop up~

    it would be great if people can come up with a package for all those sets in one piece. I am definitely doing mine but just that its a fcking hassle to get it piece by piece. Any source locally with a reasonable price that i can ring to?

    Yes you can if the water pump condition is good. But since all the parts that are in the way are already dismantled it's wise to save labour (if your water pump fails in the future) by just changing it as well.

    Kaminari,

    Can you PM me the price for the N1 water pump? Also, what about aftermarket parts - any plans to bring in brands currently not represented in Malaysia?
