Please guys, do take note of these, Carclick garage is overrated and services is very very poor and lousy. If you guys are going for a normal servicing bring your own EO and filters it’s definitely worth it. Other wise please do not go there, gentle reminder to all. I think really overrated when last week I went to check the knocking sound came from my rear undercarriage, yuan claimed that sound came from absorbers and replace the rear 2 after which the sound is even louder and he say was because the absorbers was new and the rubber was old. So I did not respond to it and after a few days went to another workshop to check and the sound actually came from exhaust pipes because it was loosen. And also there’s something very wrong with the alignment. At the r the alignment my steering wheel tend to tilt to the left side when going straight road. Do your own due diligence before heading there

Ah Yuan is black face even since he is at LCH. maybe not black face, but should say straight face.

their biz good, also is another factor they will tend to be more impatient.

I just had my radiator and Thermostat changed due to my car was overheating 3 weeks ago. After changed realised once top up the coolant, the car moving OK,once coolant get lesser, the car temperature will rise up once in slow motion like parking or down strope, then it running smooth after too up the water. FYI the coolant water once top up only last 5 days. I just went to the workshop yesterday, the boss told me must be head gasket fault, if change about 1k to 2k. Anyone have this problem?

head gasket - do u see any curd in the coolant bottle? any white smoke fr exhaust? but yes the price is abt there.

mainly you are leaking coolant. check hoses and leaks first.

Hi guys

Need your help to recommend an experienced workshop that is specialized in coolant leak.
I’m driving a Suzuki SX4 ( just renew my Coe in March) and I’m having problems with leaking coolant. Below are the things that I have done previously :

1. Replace head gasket at rambo ( next to ksl)
2. Replace top gasket at lch( previously Ah yuan workshop)
3. Replace 3 radiator cap at different workshop
4. Replace water hose gasket ( car click)
5. Replace water hose clamp ( car click)
6. Replace radiator (car click)
7. Overhaul engine ( car click)

I have been to other workshops locally but none is able to solve my problem.
I don’t mind paying a little more to have my problem diagnosed properly but I’m sick of trial and error methods.

Appreciate if the experts here can recommend me a proper workshop .
Thanks in advanced

Hi Hi, have your problem been solve? You have change the above and yet still have coolant problem?

Suzuki? Dropping coolant level is normal. Check the spare tank cap and rubber seal. I've changed the rubber seal and now coolant doesn't disappear that quickly.

Hi I m suzuki driver. May I know if dropping on coolant water, the car temperature is normal when in fast speed but will rise up only if is in slow mode like parking or down stroll.. Once fill up the coolant water everything is fine. Sg workshop told me is the head gasket on top of engine problem.. Anyone have this issue?

happened to my old CS3 also, first radiator changed, then overheat again because pipe burst and changed, third time overheat like yours then workshop say is head gasket problem, so need to do engine top overhaul. Its like a chain reaction... i paid 1.2k for the engine top overhaul.

Just to share, I went to try out a workshop in Permas Jaya called Tung Chun Motorsport. They do a lot of Hondas (some Google reviewer said they are Honda specialists), and I saw 2 old SG plate Civics visit them today.
I went to get my 4 engine mountings changed, plus change of EO and ATF. Only oil filter was from them. Boss gave me a package rate of MYR300, which seemed reasonable. I did ask another workshop nearby regarding change of engine mountings, and he quoted "about MY250". So I guess it's close enough.
Chat with another Singaporean there waiting for a friend, and he said he has been using them for the past 5-6 years, while his friend has been with them for around 11. Happy to have an alternative which seemed trustworthy.

Reached at around 10am, and done by 1215pm. I did notice the boss and his 2 workers checking something out undercarriage while preparing to change EO and ATF, but I couldn't really tell what it was. When paying, the boss then explained to me that one of the nuts was overtightened in the past, resulting in it not being able to tighten fully. Told me to notify him in advance next time and he'll get a replacement nut to resolve this issue, and assured me that it's ok for now. Therefore, I didn't have to probe what the issue was.
