  1. Hi Everyone, Thought to start this topic to keep a record on maintenance and repairs if any. The car referred here is my Lancer EX (for those who don't know) and the details of it could be found here. I bought the car just about an year ago with a mileage of 108000kms on it clock. Car had all following things done at 94000kms when I bought it. 1.Replaced all four shocks and dampers. 2.Engine Tuneup plus new plug set. 3.Alternator Belt replaced. 4.New tires installed. 5.New Battery installed. 6.Fron RHD bearing replaced. 7.Auto Gear Oil Changed.
  2. Dear all! I recently purchased an used Sorento 2012 with a mileage of below 100k. It was previously maintained by AutoMiraj in most cases. However, with good intentions I made an inspection with Kia Agents. They’ve given me a quotation of 8lakhs for the “suggested repairs”. They even recommended a Transmission Oil change which costs a staggering 80k. what I need to know is, what are the recommend garages or maintenance places to get a second look or the repairs done? What should I look out for in the near future?
  3. Hi, Does anyone has the workshop manual / maintenance manual of Suzuki Xbee? Either in English or Japanese language? Thanks in advance, GBB PS: There is a maintenance DVD series by MKJP. Does anyone know where can I get these as well?
  4. I got 45 ah battery in my car full charged and has GREEN colour on the too indicator. It was left at garage for cut and polish due to a new paint recently for 5 days. Once back, I checked the battery which gives 13v however, the status indicator shows WHITE colour. No hard staring issues. I used the car and it shows 13v volt but the WHITE COLOR STILL EXISTS?!! As per the battery, GREEN is FULLY charged, WHITE is NEEDS CHARGING, RED is SERVICING. Why WHITE COLOUR is showing up, at the same time 13 v reads on multimeter?? HOW TO GET BACK GREEN COLOR ? Do I have to purchase a new o
  5. Hi everyone, Although we cannot exactly track what a vehicle has been through for many years of its usage. As buyers, it always makes us confident if we can examine the vehicle service records before buying a used vehicle. Do you maintain your service records? what you feel about its importance?
  6. Hi everyone, My dad owned a KIA sportage 2006, but he passed away recently and now the vehicle was passed down to me. the vehicle was always part of the family and dad took very good care of it. recently I saw drops of oil at the bottom of the engine bay and I took it to a nearby garage. the man said its seems there is a leak from the gasket covers. I replaced all the gasket cover lining (I hope I am using the correct term). and the O rings on the top cover of the engine cover and the plugs. (apologies for not knowing the exact terms of the parts). Unfortunately, the oil leak did not stop.
  7. I have found toyota axio 2007 which has all its services done at Toyota Lanka. Im planing to buy it since the car look in good shape. Before buying it i thought of taking it to Toyota Lanka to get a inspection report. So when i take the car to them would the verify the records with their history and also confirm the ODO reading is genuine by cross checking with their records?
  8. Want to Jump to the 2019 discussion on this? Click here. Guys I want to do a little research on service quality, customer support from our local agents for different vehicle makes, please share your experience. Even though most of us heavily depends on our own preferred mechanics, it's good to have some support from official local agent for our vehicles (if exists). This is something to consider specially for first owner vehicles since on serious damages there's nothing much a local mechanic can do other than saying "take it to the company", have you delt with the local agent for you
  9. Hello guys, Finally I’m happy to say that after many years, I’m going to sell my car and buy an Axio Luxel Alpha.So the car is owned by one of my father’s closest friends and he is the first owner. He personally imported and maintained the car well. At the moment the car has only two issues. One is the famous dashboard cracking problem. Other one is a bad Right side front shock absorber. I have driven the car previously and man that thing pulls hard.So I used my 121 during the same period of mileage but since this has a different engine and a gearbox, I have a doubt about maintaining it.
  10. So most of you are aware I own an old Toyota Starlet. One thing I had neglected to get fixed immediately were the brakes; they were there, but they didn't have much bite when slowing from high speeds. Since I had to do a timing belt change as well, I never really pushed the car beyond 70kmh, even on the highway. However my procrastination came to bite me in the ass last week when I crashed into an idiot in a Vitz who cut into my lane from Hemas Hospital trying to a U turn and stopped right in front of me. It was like a movie playing in slow motion, I stood on the brakes and hit the car just ha

  12. Hi there, I am Ziyan, finally after like a month of waiting, the admins give me the ability to post a thread!!! Hurey! I have looked up a lot of information on autolanka, b Background (I won't bite if you skip) A vehicle has to match its owner, its like a marriage, I believe. I am an engineer and I like quality and power but honer efficiency. The car will generally gold 2 humans and 1 dog but can also be 4 guys. It will climb the Kandy hill and I could use some power overtaking vehicles quickly in slim opportunity thanks to the jobless cops napping under trees. I live in Colombo and my gal i
  13. I heard that there is a petrol tank oil filter in the cars. So when I should change the petrol tank oil filter? I mean millage? Is there a way to check whether petrol tank oil filter is good or bad? What are the indications that we have to change the oil filter?
  14. Hi Everyone, Its been awhile since i was on the forums. I've decided to go for a Honda CRZ which i'll be picking up this Thursday. It'll be my first hybrid and first coupe. I know its not the fastest thing on the planet but it will be enough fun for me :-). Wanted to pick the brains of all you Honda and CRZ boffins on what i should look out for in terms of maintenance and if you had any tips with regards to daily use and where to go for its regular servicing. Thanks in advance.
  15. I presently have a Peugeot 406 (99) and since it's been serviced with Agent by previous owners I also used to service it when possible. But I have been told before that they do not do it properly by friends who use it. Yesterday (21.02.2013) I serviced my vehicle at CARMART and when I was on the way back after service, I found out that they have broken AC vent (loovers and controller). Both passenger side loovers and the controllers are broken. When I called and told them (initially the service adviser then the service manager), what they told is I should have checked before leaving. Of cou
