Try searching for a guy called KB Lee. One of the ones selling Amaron batteries at a better price. Used to do installation at your location, not sure if he still does.

Throttle body cheapest I did in SG was like only $25 or so..shop in Woodlands I think but a few years back..will try to find the address.
If anyone needs cheap throttle body cleaning in SG can check this place out.
This is the shop, prices might have gone up cos I last went there 3 years back but they were efficient and cheap at that time, knew what they were doing-

Coolant got nothing to do with throttle body cleaning. Most likely your reservoir is low

Yes. There is a coolant line connected to throttle body to heat up the air. However this function is redundant in our climate. Most of us will just bypass the throttle coolant line.

For me never had this issue bro, did throttle body cleaning once at the Woodlands shop for my sister's SUV(RX300) and once for my own FD Civic in JB. Your coolant level was probably low(or at least below max) from before I'm guessing? Did you ask him to top up?

Never instruct him to topup coolant actually.
I already ask him TOP up reservoir 2 weeks before.
Before he clean tb I was checking my reservoir it was at 3/4 mark to F

Den suddenly he called me say want coolant ask me got anot.
Then I go see my reservoir it drop like to 1/4.

Then he explain need topup coolant after clean tb.
He topup at radiator cap there not my reservoir.

Anyway no harm let him topup since I have it in my boot.

Yah bro, last time in MCF, got people talk about bypass throttle coolant
But I donít see any need for this leh. Not like do the bypass will add 3-5 BHP.

I bought my car and everything from throttle to heater core and even oil filter cooler already bypass. Honestly don't think it makes much of a difference to the temps as well.

A good brand can normally last for 2 years. but better get the mechanic to check with the voltmeter when you go service

the price for amaron in SG is more or less the same. I changed mine at Accord Auto Services at Bukit Merah for around $100. if too far, they have another branch at Ang Mo Kio.
