What ever it is, All branded oil will be cover by an Insurance policy, If there is a mulfunction to the oil, that cause the damaged to the engine, they will compemsate the repairs of the engine. But not sure whether the workshop in JB can handle this.

would like to point out that aircon gas is a closed loop system and hence should not escape or leak out. if need to top up aircon gas means there is a leak in the system which should be found and plugged first.

pls correct me if i'm wrong, just found out about this aircon gas thing from my aircon lecturer.

Hi,

I usually send my car to autocare 04-12 to service my car. They are offering cheap and good service.

rainex is no gimmick however it will shorten the lifespan of your wipers as it will roughen the surface of your windscreen. under heavy rain, those stock wipers will judder over the rough surface of the windscreen.

Raines I feel it's good enough to endure light drizzle. try heavy downpour without switching on your wipers. can be challenging and dangerous

Should be ok to service in Dec if your car is not making any weird noises or feeling strange.
Hope this helps.

i follow mileage one, always exceed a bit then i go c&c to service. I always hit the mileage first before hit the date. Guess you are not heavy user.

I was told that my shaft needs to be changed. The workshop in job only has reconditioned one and charging me 350rm per shaft. I think it is too ex for a recon one and got the feeling that I kena chop carrot.

So where can I find a local workshop where they can change original Toyota vios shaft or help change the bush of my shaft?
