Wah that is super cheap. Unless the mechanic marked up the costs of oil, ATF, filters etc.

I bought the parts in sg including engine oil and then brought over...10yo kia forte, many things start to breakdown. rike aircon leaks, engine mountings, ignition coils.

guess I will need to visit more workshops so trying to find a cost effective one...

not much of a review, cos the eo and atf change job was pretty straight forward.

the mechanic used a pump to remove the old atf which was brownish-black. then poured in the new pinkish-purple fluid by hand...removed drain plug below the engine, then filled new eo by hand. all this was done without ramping up the car lol...then he drove to a level ground and check all the dip sticks...

Indeed.. You need to hoist up the whole car equally. Disposal of the lubricant also a hassle. Need to bring to workshop at least.
DIY spirit is good. But I heard from someone that he got fined 2K by NEA while changing oil at mscp. Spirit dropped to 0% immediately.

Reasonable lah... ATF labor 20 to 25, eo & filter 15 to 25. So 50 for all is acceptable

Indeed. There are still dude around wana "test water" with the authority.
I guess there could be cases back then of ppl diy and mess up the whole place and or discard the used EO at the drainage or inside dustbin.

Nice... This is how most JB workshop practice. Without hoist, no problem. floor jack also can.
I rem a dude in this thread commented about his ride not hoist up during eo change. KPKB of not been professional this workshop.
Perhaps, this dude if you read this, can avoid heading to this wksp too.
