I have a Hayden 401 on my vios. Bring to Ah Yuan, he fixed it for my ride.

No issues so far, I don't monitor my ATF temps but I can feel that the transmission is more responsive perhaps due to the lower temps.

Mine is 4AT so if i lose speed while on 4th gear, it's very responsive and would downshift right when i wanted it to, irregardless if i step on accelerator or not. Love this feel

They are a wholesaler. Always change Tao chew cos fixing accessories not main biz, need to reach there early if you want to do something.. products mainly from china.

For those who goes often to Malaysia and having keyless function do take note:

These statement show how useless manufacturers and police are?
Or how impressive car's thevies are with $50 device? Lolol

["To date, car manufacturers have yet to find a foolproof solution to beat these car thieves," the ADAC findings concluded.

A police spokesman said they were aware of this high-tech method.]

Inform workshop beforehand cuz they will need to order the parts and will take some time for it to be delivered.

For my fuel filter, it's tricky and I will change together with fuel pump. Belt and valve cover gasket shouldn't be too difficult as well.

You can ask the workshop to test your ignition coil (for resistance), change if need be and those don't come cheap.

But i can tell you out of all the JB workshop that I went to, LCH is really fast hand fast leg

The items I buy in sg then bring in jb to do.
Yes LCH quite fast in labour.
Was there on sat. Saw them replace 4 tyres for a sirocco

If fuel filter tricky then I will not change.
Actually I itchy hand thinking parts to replace.
Worry one day will wear and tear.

1. Ignition coil. My ride coming to its 9th yo. I have not change it. I asked spare parts chops in JB & usual workshop mechanics. Both said got problem then change else why waste $$.
For ignition coil, Search for the user: Alan_01 in carousel. I am not related to him btw.

2. V-belt: Unless is noisy. Else, get your usual mechanics to check it during PM EO change.

2. Fuel Filter: My ride coming to its 9th yo. I have not change it. I asked spare parts shops in JB. The sales ppl says got problem then change lah.


Hopes the above useful ref for you.
