  1. Hi all. I own a KIA Sportage 2010. I ran a full inspection and found below major errors. Would you be able to mention a reliable garage/person who could repair those for a reasonable price.

Engine oil leak. need to replace tappet cover and check for other leakages. 4. Routine service after 80,000kms

  3. AutoLankans, is there a workshop around Kandy you could recommend for a suspension repair/replacement of a corolla 141? Is this "Willies Automobiles" any good? Or are there better places? Don't want to go to the agent and get myself fleeced. Thank you in advance!
  4. Lets talk about Where you did the cell change, How long did the repair last and if its worth doing the cell change in the first place. Thanks guys! Cheers
  5. My future wife managed to crash my car in to a parked bus in Kandy road. ? Front left headlight, buffer, front grills and the bonnet are damaged. I have never done a serious accident repair before as this is my first car. So I could use some advice regarding the process. I took the car to VT*C Motors in Malabe as I have heard a lot of good stuff about them. They said that all aforementioned parts will need to be replaced including the bonnet (which I thought would be fixable by tinkering). My concerns are, Do I need to find spare parts? Or will the garage people do that
  6. My Maruti Suzuki Celerio Vxi AMT - it's MTA unit is not working. Is anyone can repair this thing?
  7. Dear All, After a long time I am again asking your valuable experience and knowledge on auto mechanics.. My engine head gasket is blown ( 5A-FE). Seems it's affected to an air passage, since air bubbles are coming out when RPM reaches 2500. Also no oil is visible. Problem is I want some time to get it fixed myself. Usually I am not used to give any kind of a bass for repair since almost all had done damages rather than repairing my car.... I am expecting to finish this on this Saturday. It is around 1 month now after I came to know that the gasket is blow. Radiator was replaced by a new o
  8. My father scratched the driver side tire to the toll gate pavement when exiting the southern expressway ?. Its a small cosmetic damage, but still annoying to a person with mild OCD. There are no deep cuts, but the paint and surface parts of the wheel is chipped in few places. I saw a post from @Davy explaining alloy wheel repair as a DIY project, but since this is a smaller issue, I believe it will be cheaper & easier to get this fixed from a professional. Can someone suggest a good place to get this fixed? And an approximate cost it will take. Thank you very much. ?
  9. Hi Guys, Today I have bought a honda city 2000 V-Tec car and I want to know a good and trusted place near Kandy to service and do some repairs in my car. This is going to be the first service I'm doing after buying it. There is a little power steering oil leak and I need to get it repaired too. So do you guys have any suggestions for me on a place to repair it? Service and repair from two separate places is okay. Also, I really appreciate it if you guys give me a hint on what to check in this first service after buying this old car...? Thank you.
  10. So I met with a minor accident from my CivicX. I forgot I’m not driving my fathers Toyota and ran over a small concrete slab while parking the car. Now the engine under guard is cracked open to the right side. It’s a minor damage but since insurance is covering the repair cost, thought of getting it fixed immediately. Can someone please suggest a good reliable body repair shop to get it fixed? P.S. Cant go to Honda agent as insurance is not covering the full claim for agent. Car is registered as a reconditioned.
  11. One of the factory fitted DRL's on my car does not work anymore. Not sure what exactly has happened. But I'm assuming one of the LED's in the light strip went out and in turn the circuit is now incomplete. I've heard this is a common cause for LED light strips to not work. I would buy a new one but it currently costs 90k to replace this tiny light strip and only the agents carry the part here, I've checked extensively in other places but they don't carry the part. Can anyone here recommend a place that does a good job repairing these LED light strips? Below is a working example of the par
  12. Hi fellow drivers, Just got a viva elite 2012 manual recently and need to repair / replace some stuff related to brakes (could be pads / caliper pins etc.). I live in Panadura. I need a close by guy to make my go-to-guy. I don't think #UNIMO will be good given that many people here complain of the service and prices. If you know any good place, please drop a note on prices too . Thanks! (If I'm replacing brake pads or caliper pins, do I need to go with original products or A-grade replica? I heard originals can be around 20k while a good replica is 2k something. Correct me.
  13. Recently I met with an accident and I had to replace rear windscreen of my Honda Fit GP4. I handed over the car to Mag C#ty and asked them to handle insurance and everything coz of my busy schedule. They have replaced a duplicate Malaysian windscreen instead of my original Honda one without informing me. And also there was no transparency of the process at all . However, after replacing to a duplicate one vibration noise coming from the rear windscreen when I drive on broken roads. Mag C#ty guys are not accepting this and they are arguing that noise coming from somewhere else. But I pret
  14. Is there any one can fix new powers shutter for my Mazda Familia (BHA3P) please contact me with a budget cost.

  16. Hi Guys, Posting a DYI again after quite some time. After I got new wheels for my car, the stock rims have been lying around and I thought of repairing them. Two of the wheels had nasty kerb damage thanks to the previous owner who was careless when parallel parking (wheels with the most damage were the ones on the left). When I was looking for a set of used BBS rims for my car, 90% of the rims I found had kerb damage. So the problem is pretty common and getting these professionally repaired and resprayed can cost a lot. If you are keen on doing this on your own, you might find this p

  18. Anyone know a place where i can get my car speedometer checked and repaired...? RPM meter works on its own schedule... The car is a Daihatsu Charade G100
  19. Hi All, I would like to discuss on the topic "converting vehicle transmission from manual to automatic". Idea of this is mainly because, nowadays most of the manual transmission cars are lot cheaper than the auto. So if anybody is willing to buy a manual for a cheaper price and convert it to a auto he will find a price advantage?? If we can discuss the pros and cons of the transformation, good mechanics who have done it successfully and hands on experiences; it would be interesting!!! What do you say??
