Thermostat housing not hose. That silver thing is the thermostat housing. Held down by two 10mm bolts. Doesn't look like yours has a gasket though. Should be ok to dismantle and open up. Check that your thermostat is working. Easiest way to see if it opens and closes is to clean it up, and dunk it in boiling water.
Ok,noted thx. Last time I flush the radiator while the car is idling forgot to mention. After flushing I will rev and let the water come out.

Wira update.

Before I flush my coolant I felt something went wrong to my car. The temperature is quite high and also when the temperature is high my aircond start blow warm air. After checking is one of my fan motor & blade rosak. A RM150 job.

After changing it the car now run good and cold.
And I still haven't flush my radiator. Hahahahahaha

Are you going to do a hood pin latch? Cuz it sounds like your original latch doesn't hold tightly.

RM80 is very cheap. Good find.

Looks ori but ori needs to modify the latch slightly. Front looks dented but I suppose you can have mudguard fella fix it for you. Unsure if extra putty may cause paint delamination later.

Putty for uneven surface, not for deep dents. Too thick later will crack and peel. Need mudguard guy to panel beat then putty back......lol

Maybe by killing off the engine, it's trying to save you more fuel.

Try checking your ilde control valve

yes u can. plug and play. no issues. only the gear ratio different. example cruising at 100kmh now, rpm is 3k, on the 4g91 the rpm will be slightly higher.

oooo...trying to find and justify an engine mod....hihihi.

Engine rebuild on a wira is super cheap...its cheaper than rebuildin an engine for certain kapchai.

I would strongly suggest to buy engine with gb as the ratio is designed to worked with that specific engine for everyday drive.

Juz want some fun out of the car. Hahahahahaha
When I was thinking to play with the car I juz figure out the car is a vdo. When I wanna do a rebuild if i swap a mild cam,cam pulley will it peform better?I don't need peak bhp.I juz wish the rpm can go up faster since the car is not even 100hp.
The car now with wira carb gearbox I also feel the rpm q little bit high. 100km/h the rpm is around 3k+ 140 is around 4k I not sure is it normal or not.
