Wink Car care

Also good to do our own regular checks and upkeep the car well e.g. ensure sufficient air pressure in the tire, checking battery fluid is sufficient.

erm.... go to your usual workshop which you can trust most... asked for his views on what other say about your cars.
Hopes this helps.

I am curious why some of the car servicing promotions are so cheap. S$50 inclusive of 4L engine oil. Has anyone tried? Are these reliable?

I know that 4L of engine oil can cost at least S$50.
I tried twice:
First workshop at Kaki bukit. Shop just open like 2-3 months. Using 5W40 Shell Helix +filter + few point checks. Total is $10bucks. Promo ends liao.

The 2nd workshop i went recently for the usual oil change...they running a NDP. $8bucks all in.

Cheers....

I believe that works in any kind of goods/services industry, they might just cut their profit so low until we feel it is unbelievable. But in any case, you have to check the credibility of the company though. There is a possibility that they are actually scammers, and will be shooting you with many other kinds of promotion (like the beautician promos, if you know what i mean). Anyway, strictly speaking, there are businesses that are daring enough to cut off their profit in order to get publicity, just a mere marketing stunt. So just research online and check the credibility yes? any thought?
I agreed. Marketing stunt to get in the traffic. Like the $10 promo shell helix oil promo i tried earlier.

Learn to change your own oil and basic items like spark plugs. Most of the servicing instructions are in the owners manual.

Hi Guys,hope to seek everyone's advise on my car.i'm driving toyota wish realize during

like slow speed traffic(Custom Jam) 10-20kmph tend to hear noises like cranking or rather

a draggin sound especially drive to neutral mode or vice versa.not sure if it's coming

from underneath or bonnet .any idea what would be most likely causing this?

Problem is whenever i bring to workshop the noise somehow disappear/camouflage.

Sian....
Even if the sounds disappear “magically” when u’re at the car workshop, ur car mechanic shld be able to fix it no? If not, he/she obviously has to be fired for not doing his/her job well since he/she dosen’t know nuts???? Lol
