you suggest to get a new radiator? if the radiator causing the rust. how many mm? double layer aluminium?
usually after flushing and then add coolant, if there's still rust, it's from the water passage inside the block. u will need to remove water pump, thermostat and water plug at the block side and do chemical flushing to remove all the rust. then radiator send again for service and cleaning. should be able to clear the rust out that way.

For the moment, just use plain water. Flush it every few days or weekends, until you are satisfied it's clean
Yup, I did it this way when first time flush, because after running the engine still got rust from engine block, so flush weekly for 3 to 4 weeks then only add coolant......lol

Cant stoke a fire unless the tinder was already glowing. :driver:


Be careful with some items. Some may be of poor quality
Will always see the review before doing any purchase. Abit more safer. For now all the thing I bought is ok juz 1 time a bottle spill out the seller resend a new one to me.

Will do it this time... 2x flush before add coolant. And make sure I drive a bit more during that 3 to 4 weeks :-). Now, CMCA and WFH.... no where to go... want to go eat roti canai also cannot.

add full coolant first. let the rust all tanggal and floating. then take out coolant and flush with running water. add again coolant and let it run again. repeat with running water. LOL

Wira update.

Got some tyre fender & a pair of universal fog lights for the car.

Didn't know the size but actually is the same size. Lucky me.hahahahahhaa
My colleague had hlp me to do the wiring for it sincr I am kinda stupid at that part.

After that I had chg the tyre fender. What I found out is the fitment doesn't fit well. Although the hole is same as the ori one but still lari abit.
But..... Nothing cannot use cablebtie to settle lah.
Those hole lari one I had use cable tie to tie up to prevent the fender went loose.

Juz a little pain in the axx if I want open the bumper.(need to cut of all the cable tie,hahahahahhaha
