    Lot of people who use wira 1.6 & 1.8 faced with gear box problem.Me also use 1.8 auto.My pomen said this 2 model had a 'manja' gearbox :D ..It must service correctly 20k km change gear oil.Next 20k km should replace ATF filter + atf oil.Do it regularly..Wrong gred ATF also can damage it..suggest use proton ATF.

    yup....

    1.6,1.8 and perdana share the same gearbox...

    even the ecu code was same (as told by my mech....not verified by myself)

    and these GB kong easily..especially if the driver have heavy foot syndrome.... :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:


    nowadays...price at halfcut also high leh...last time my gb kong....kena 1.3k for gb price only....ask my mech. to convert manual...but he doesn't want to do it...but my car already towed there...if not better i tow to other place who can do it.... :bawling:

    -so now have to stick with auto..later in few years if kong again last resort convert to manual....sure with add-on power to engine.... :nurse:

    as servicing....suggested to use proton atf (original not imitation one) and every 20k or during 3rd-4th time engine oil change...(to change the atf as well)


    currently drive at snail-highway-pace and practice featherweight-right-foot habbit....:biggrin:

    try look for 4g63 sohc auto gearbox (1st gen perdana 2.0 sei)

    it was a perfect match.....


    btw my gearbox still survived till today with more than 150k km on the odo since last time gearbox replacement....

    p/s: also go get an external (atf) oil cooler for your gearbox...i got mine with small cooling fan from evo's atf cooler.... :adore:


    *example of atf cooler with fan: [WTS] Used ATF Cooler with Fan for Perdana V6.

    *i got mine exactly like this: [​IMG]

    p/s: picture owned by danzeterna :adore:
