I occasionally browse social media of AL members (that I can find of course) Mostly the member active from 2006 ish to around 2014.· 1 reply
I am proud to say almost all of them are much wealthier now than when they joined many years ago.
Most of them drive some real cool machines.Some are even on the “car spotters” pages (which seems to be the achievement target for young guys)
I’m very sure the passion and excitement plus the wealth of knowledge gained from Autolanka helped them to have the awesome taste in cars they do. In a sea of new money people and their flashy show off cars. The Autolanka crowd still stands taller.
Not many young people know about AL, even the old members seem to have forgotten/passed that era. But the cars they drive and the class they show is unmatched in the car scene.
Thank you @MADZ for starting AL and even more so for maintaining it all these years. I saw that you are in Sri Lanka no more, understandably. But I’m glad you still make the effort to keep it going.
The country keeps going backwards. But at least the Autolanka members are doing well and keeping that AL spirit.
After owning the Camry for 2 years I just realized I have never been driven in the backseat. The only other person who has driven the car other than myself as well is my Mechanic· 3 replies

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?
