What's up with Kia Sorento drivers? Impatient bunch also honking or swerving around? Same stereotype applies to Wagon R and Spacia drivers always turning on their Headlights in the dark and Alto drivers hogging the right lane. Canter Drivers driving like they can respawn after death is also something I noticed.· 0 replies
It's either the rich boys terrorizing the innocent road driver or policitions showing off their power with a range rover.· 2 replies
So called parts big shot importers trying to establish cults and RIP off innocent petrolheads.
Average users destroying hybrids and wagon rs then shedding them for more money.
Good drivers cars being paraded at insane prices
Old sodden suvs going almost higher than newer counterparts
At the rate people are doing this buying and selling scam, soon their wont be customers, just buy and sell con men!
But why bother? Even the big companies are doing the same under a brand name.
Sad to see what motoring in this country has come to.
Ok Guys another interesting topic !!· 13 replies
As most of you aware GP series has a known issue of oil burning regardless of the chassis series (as per Stafford), so i just did a small research and found out couple of solutions that are currently in place. I know this has been discussed in a separate thread but i guess this aspect was not included in that discussion(if im not mistaken).
1) Clean the pistons, rings and plugs and reuse it (not quite sure how long you can run before you get the same issue again.) any idea in KM?
2) Engine swap (which is not sure as you don't know the series which this engine belongs to)
3) Fully rebuild the engine with the corrected rebuild kit -> 100% guaranteed method
4) Well this is the newest one I found. Garages remove the pistons and do a modification to the ring groove and then put a new set of rings which suites it. And this seems to be a successful solution as well. A Garage I knows have done this for 4 cars and so far no complains (they have been doing this since couple of years it seems). Cost is almost like half the price including labor.
So point 1 and 4 are open for discussion...
