Dash Camera???

Hi guys i suspect my car has some parasite battery drain as my battery is only 8 months old. Got 1 day my car voltage goes down to 9v and unable to start. 2 weeks later today my car voltage was at 11.8v. I drive every day though.
So I suspect got parasite drain or simply battery unable to hold charge.

Car voltage is 13.8-14v while engine is running.

Sheng auto able to help check this and my alternator condition? Or I shld go find ah yuan?

Please remember to do a review here later.
erm... already did abt 1000+km on the new totachi 0w20 since last week. Basically, car sounds and feel the same as previously. Mileage went up to abt 600km for a full tank before the orange light appeared, up from my previous 580km. But only happened once. Not sure if it is due to the EO.

Personally, i would prefer to get it directly from Sheng Auto. Any problem after that, just go to Sheng Auto. Last time i asked before, comes with 12 month warranty their units.
Whatapps them. They quote a rm1480 for a android 9inch unit from china. Not sure the market rate, but I do see china units at under sgd200. But you are right, I don't want faulty issues if I got direct from china. But Sheng auto's price like super steep.

Normally not so good oils would breakdown at the 6-7k mark. My experience.

Well, do a few price checks... Mostly all comes from mainland china liao.
sgd200 includes installation + warranty?

No I mean the lower quality oil degrades quicker. Like Shell Helix Ultra 5w-40 that I used breaks down around 7+k. At 8k the engine is begging for mercy.

My dad who uses Castrol Edge goes to 11-12k sometimes without any problems. But it’s not advisable.

Just to share, I recon my steering rack at Elite at Sin Ming. Damage was $350, less than a year ago shortly after I took ownership of my Stream. Frankly speaking, recon should be better than an unknown condition scrapyard part.

How will I know if the EO starts breaking down? Through sound of engine?

Rougher. I know it is not scientific. But with better oils this doesn’t happen so soon. I was shocked by the poor quality of SHU 5w-40.
