Just went CarClick on the weekend to check my car as replaced valve cover gasket at 150K KM few months back at CarClick.

Told Jospeh to check if still got any leaks at mileage 155K Km. Proceeded to hoist vehicle up and found some old stains and at the same area as before and oil pan area also abit damped with oil.

He diagnosed say might need to reseal oil pan silicon and the valve timing cover which will be good to perform on next servicing.

Next check valve cover gasket okay, but took out all 4 ignition coil,
Cylinder 1 was wet with EO and coil 1 was wet also. The rest was dry.

He say valve cover spoil again, must change again.
No choice never bring spare gasket so took from them and he help suck out oil from cylinder 1 then proceed to change gasket and wash cover.

Asked him got put silicon anot, he say last time got put now also will put.
Not sure how come after 5K Km gasket will leak again.

Charged me 125RM for the gasket labour 40RM.
Then told him to perform balancing for front so 10RM

Then point out my front brakes pads left 20% so pass him my new brakes pads and labour was 20RM for each side.

Total spend was 215RM. About 70 SGD.

Now CarClick accept credit card already but got surcharge 3%, and they have build a new waiting room for customer.

Saw their office outside, they carry some aftermarket parts like Tien, D2c engineering works, etc.

Now they have the obd computer to help scan for error codes.
Is the big tablet kind. So seems like they have upgraded thier shop.

I still wondering why the valve cover so fast leak, he quoted me 300RM TO reseal valve cover timing and oil pan. But is 6 hours job.

Personally, the price is good. You won't get this price in sg.
Again some dude may suggest can get cheaper elsewhere for sure... Lets wait and see...

1. Carclick - Popular here. Read the reviews too. Haven use before. Can find them on FB.

This one i always use. @ Permas Jaya. Not far away from this workshop have parts shop, i always buy there then go fix at the workshop. Sometime, i drove there to let the boss check first, the boss will tell me go buy parts and come in for him to fix. Like this save time, he can help source for parts but overall time will be longer. Appt is preferred.
There is a Aeon shopping mall which is 5mins walk away.

TPG is your best bet! Its free and usable. Using this using Whatsapp, Messenger, SPOTIFY, Google Maps, Waze but slow to use Netflix.

GREAT RECOMMENDATION!!
Good place and very GOOOOOD PRICE ya.....
Service also got standard too

I visit this shop yesterday, after I messed up my central lock while trying to DIY an additional gadget on my alarm and I accidentally done a wrong connection which haywire my remote lock and cant open my hood. I suspected I blown some of my fuse that is related to my lock unlock doors.

I know that KSL shops there like Ah Wee , is not recommended base on what I read from here and one time I tried to ask for some gadget installation and price skyrocket high thats why I know. But I read from here regarding RAMBO, so I just want to try as its the nearest from Woodlands.

And I find it workmanship, attitude and determination is good. It is recommended. I ask the name of the mechanic so next time I can ask him to install for me whatever I need to repair or install on my ride. The lady is the owner , but I dont her name. I talk to her also that i will post my experience in this website. Take note Im not related to this shop. I've visited previously, Carclick, Sheng Auto Accs, LCH Brothers based on the recommendation here. Its best to try different shops to know which one is worth to service and install on our rides. At least we have different alternatives . Enjoy and Safe Drive Bros.

I'm their regular customer. His supervisor is Ah Siong and their customer service is good. I did my car accessories installation and servicing there. Recommended for their after service.

Much appreciated, getting one from direct seller who gotten it less than a month from AML due to relocation. Am sending to mechanic in SG for a check first and taking up add on warranty from elsewhere to cover engine and gearbox since will be using for part time grab. Engine oil seems a bit black.

Is there any price gauge for servicing? And sheng auto or car click for servicing? Got any other workshop? Thanks so much. Time to study..

With all those parts replaced, your car is as good as having a completely new cooling system. But the problem of losing coolant still persist. Very very strange.

How much coolant is your car losing per week roughly?

Do you still see coolant on the floor or in your engine compartment, ie red or green fluid?

Have u checked the condition of your engine oil recently? Does it look murky?

Most experienced car mechs should be able to pinpoint n solve this type of problem using pressure kit or those uv dye kit.
Hi Koolaid, thanks for your reply.
Usually the coolant went from High to low level between 2-3 weeks. I have top up the expansion tank 3 days ago and inspect everyday so far no leakage.hopefully is just air trap.l

Carclick did check on the coolant and there was no milky compounds. However , I remember around 8 months ago, I have encounter numerous time of rusty coolant and have done radiator flushing twice but it just keep coming back. I have replaced my radiator just last week and so far no rust found. People in car click top up my coolant with only water and dye usually but still could not find the leakage.
