Why change the whole compressor for recon unit if only the magnetic clutch got problem? Compressor working fine.....:driver:

The 1st mechanic I go to check say compressor rosak. I dun belive so I bring to another place to check. Found out only the old clutch rosak only.
So I juz change the clutch yesterday and everything is ok now.

To be honest. What were they thinking making the car so high.Hahahahaha
It gives better suspension travel & comfort for consumers. Back then when cars were still relatively softly sprung, they can absorb bumps very well in a straight line & mid-corner. I've a feeling why it wasn't lower because of ground clearance when fully loaded.

But then again there's a lot more engineering behind that than just how high/low soft/stiff a car is that makes it handle... Our IRS proton rears under compression gains camber + toe. Quite a good design for that era.

Stand still pick up ok la.
Juz lack a bit of torque after you release the pedal and step back.

Now my friend suggest me to go and check does it need a top overhaul. The engine is running ok but when driving & idling a little tapping sound.
If you want to save cost can perhaps try diesel engine oil at the next oil change first. The engine may be a little dirty over the years.

I've used bardahl diesel oil + marvel mystery oil to revive a 3 years dead wira. From blowing white smoke it took 1 week of driving to get it to have 0 smoke & condensation like new in the morning. Sometimes the piston rings are just a bit sticky, don't necessarily have to overhaul straight. :burnout:

For now my wira 1tank can go around 400km RM80+ a tabk. So far so good now. Next month will go and check some issue. The car suddenly engine mati. Dunno why everything still on. Push to N then start back is ok.
My suspect is the fuel injection. Since if is fuel pump issue the car will goyang very kuat because hard to pump the fuel,but my car didn't have such problem. Will diagnose agn when checking.

Have you changed the fuel filter?
