  1. Hi all, Any place to buy Lucas Stop Leak in Sri Lanka? I have two issues and one is a little advance. * Oil on Spark plugs after gasket replacement * A small leak
  2. HI, Please let me know a place to buy Lucas Oil Leak Stop in Sri Lanka?
  3. Hi, I have a Kia Picanto 2005 using since 2017, had minor issues until last month. Recently had to replace head gasket but did not change the Pistons and Rings. After a couple of days noticed a vibration specially when the car is idle and the performance is poor (not accelerating) also the engine light is blinking. And noticed a few oil drops on the floor. The leak is near the Dipstick, never had an oil leak before. One of my friends removed the plugs and noticed oil on them. He cleaned using Carb cleaner and put the plugs back and started. The engine light was gone, vibration gone and performance back to normal. But the oil leak did not stop. After a couple of days the same issue, not accelerating, engine light blinking, oil on plugs and the leak is as usual. Took the vehicle to the same garage where I did the gasket replacement. Now they says need to do an engine overhaul to fix the issue. This car has done nearly 160k. When I told this to my friends some suggested to use an additive like LUCAS STOP LEAK, and another suggested to replace the Gasket Valve Cover and the O-Rings which cover the Plugs, another said the time has come to replace the car or the engine Guys, please advise.
  4. Hi all, the issue is with the Brake Master Cylinder. After the telling the whole story KIA guys inspected the brake system and said the problem is with the Master Pump (Cylinder). They were about to replace the Crankshaft Sensor as I told them the power is losing. The only issue is this part is little expensive at Kia and they charge a lot as labor charges. I went to Panchikawatte today to find the Brake Master Cylinder but failed. Tried Ar..na, Aja...tha, Kore--___ La____ but they don't have it this is a 2005 model. Any other places I can try? except Mar_chi as I have replaced a few parts from Mar__chi and all crashed in a few months including shocks.
  5. Hi, I have a Kia Picanto 2005 (Manual), 135000km done. This happened recently, One tire get stuck when driving for a few KMs and noticed the pins and the tire cup is hot tempered (with a burning smell). Also feel the power is losing (not all the time) and sometimes misfiring. And noticed that the radiator water reservoir was boiling when stopped the car (not all the time). Only once showed the heat went up. When this happens I park the car and switch off the engine for 10-15 mins). Then everything back to normal until I run for another few KMs. Changed the brake pads, CV Joint, cleaned the caliper including the piston and pins, replaced the caliper piston boots and caliper pin boots. Sometimes the tire is rotating smoothly but sometimes getting stuck. Recently replaced the brake booster (recondition one). Only once or twice noticed the brake pad is little hard to push. The garage guy said need to replace the Caliper as there are some scratches inside the Piston hole. And, noticed a small oil leak from the sump packing but I don't think that it is relevant to the above issue, planning to replace them next week. No oil in the radiator and head gasket is also good (no leaks) Any idea? the radiator and the cooling system is blocked? Injector issue? or the caliper?
  6. Any idea from where I can buy Philips X-treme Vision +130% H4 bulbs in Sri Lanka?
  7. Know this post is little old. Is there a place to buy Philips Extreme vision +130 H4 bulbs in Sri Lanka? I need a pair.
  8. Not sure, they used something like Cream/Gel with the machine. Also sprayed something when using the machine. They did part by part.
  9. hello guys, I had the same issue. Driving at night and rainy days was like killing, I was driving like a blind person with a huge risk sometimes. I was about to replace my windscreen. Suddenly found this place near Moratuwa. Took my car at night and he did a small part of the windscreen. Result was amazing. Next day I took my car and spend nearly 4-5 hours. All wiper scratches gone. But small chip marks are there which no one can remove. And they applied a Nano coating to protect the glass from Rain (like RainX). Trust me, he did a great job. The cost is 5k for the whole glass (it depend on the nature of scratches and size of the glass). If you want to contact him, please PM me to get his contact details. Cheers !

  13. Guys, I had the same issue on my Kia Picanto 2005. At night and rainy days, I was driving like a blind person with a huge risk sometimes. I was about to replace my windscreen. Suddenly one of my friends recommended a place. Took my car at night and he did a small part of the windscreen. Result was amazing. Next day I took my car and spend nearly 4-5 hours. All wiper scratches gone. But small chip marks are there which no one can remove. And they applied a Nano coating to protect the glass from Rain (like RainX). Trust me, he did a great job. The cost is 5k for the whole glass (it depend on the nature of scratches and size of the glass). The location is close to Moratuwa (Katubedda). Cheers !
  14. Update: Went to Samarasinghe Windscreen on last Friday. They had two new Windscreens and one recondition one. All with some scratches and damages. So they said there will be a new shipment soon. One of my friends recommended a place near Moratuwa. Went on my way home on Friday. The guy asked to come at night as scratches are severely visible at night. He cleaned a small part of the windscreen to show what he got. I was amazed, scratches gone. So made an appointment and took the car on Saturday early morning. Took nearly 4-5 hours to complete the whole windscreen and my headlights. They have applied a Nano coat to protect the glass from rain. They took my headache off. And you wont believe the cost, only 5k for the windscreen. If you want to contact him to take all your wiper scratches out from your windscreen, just PM me. I will share his contact details (as per the Autolanka rules can't disclose contact details in public). Cheers ! Irosh
  15. Hi all, Please suggest/recommend a place to replace the windscreen of my Kia Picanto 2005 as there are plenty of Wiper scratches. I tried a lot to remove them using different methods but didn't work. It is very difficult to drive at night with this conditions. I called Samarasinghe Wnndscreen and they said the cost will be 15k for a new Japanese Windscreen with fixing charges. Also said that there will be 10years warranty for the windscreen. Is this reasonable? or there are more options? And, I would like to know the performance of these windscreens available at Samarasinghe Windscreen. Do they similar to original windscreens?? What about the visibility specially at night and on rainy days?
