From what I heard from my regular workshop, throttle body must take out and clean.. not just spray wd40 on the surface which many workshops do.

My Vios always got idling issues but so far never idle until engine die off kind. I went to Ah Yuan, he say its normal for Vios.

Then when i start after maybe 24 hours never start, will have 1 sharp screeching sound. I ask Ah Yuan, he say its normal also, no need to do anything.

But i got see people in VOGS asking about this start got sharp screeching sound, people say what alternator and starter thingy.

Hmm okay. I remember got once went to Century auto workshop to change oil because lazy go down until Ah Yuan there. Somemore colleague go with me, he always go the Century auto workshop so go there.

The boss say my problems are engine mounting, belt, brakes and tyres. He tell me the rest won't affect much since my colleague tell him another 3 years no more liao. He tell me brakes and tyres change can liao, the rest can tahan 3 years no problem.

Yeah, this sound more logical/ typical way of telling SG car owner from a JB workshop... brake and tire are safety parts, dun play play....

It's normal for old Vios. The screeching sound will go off after 5 mins, if it didn't then go and change/tighten belt

Yup that's why I post the pics taken 2 yrs ago. The dirt accumulated is scary.

Is only if park more like 8 hours or so, when start time will have that sharp screeching sound. Once start no more liao. Ah Yuan tell me normal, don't need waste money do anything.
