Good for you....

I was unlucky becos they can even install air con filter wrongly in my bolehland ride... That shop also happened to be the same name which you used before.

Btw, other shops outside this "chop-carrot" zone also can do certain illegal stuffs also lah....
True enough. 1 bad thing is their shop freaking hot. The bigger shop, not the one beside the hair saloon one. Hot until i don't know how they tahan one.

it usually comes in a set - gasket n filter. get a season mech to do it. they will remove the old gasket and use a proper plastic tool to scrap the remains. also clean up the whole pan and magnets to ensure no metal shavings.

filling it up with fresh atf is also tricky, and most mechs will ensure it isn't under or overfilled.

Thanks for the guidance bro! Yea tranny have to be treated with super extra care. I think I also get them to check my ATF cooler hose as well, it's been a while.

Ya good idea. They usually check the undercarriage when the car is lifted up... Some will also take a quick look at the bushings, joints, check for leaks, tire wear n nails, brake pads.. quite standard.

Went jb for ATF change.

workshop changed T-iv instead of WS for my Altis.

Im so pissed. They say it is okay and ask me to return to change back to WS if im worried.

Now my gearbox is diluted with T-iv (up to 50%). Read through forums and conclusion is both are not compatible and should not be mixed.

I think i will change back to WS, next servicing (5000km) drain and top up WS again. what u guys think?
No choice now but to do atf flush. Good luck..

This guy was spraying his rims black with spray paint in the carpark 2-3 weeks back at our usual parking lots. Just realised there were spots of black paint on car body. Likely the paint spray drifted and land on my car. Haiz.

Bf say nothing I can do, since no proof or camera video etc. Somemore I only realised it now. A cab driver walking pass say paint kana paint cant do much. Will damage the original car paint if try to clean off with paint remover.

Any suggestions here? Damn sua sia...

Try some WD40. I once had a brush with a pillar in my MSCP and it left some of the red paint on the bumper. At some parts where it didn't scratch my actual paintwork, the red paint came off easily.

WD40 is indeed quite a good idea. Try it. Let the solvent soak for 10mins before rubbing off the surface. Do make sure your car has been thoroughly washed before doing this.
