I'm not sure how much he charges to do chemical wash on conderser but i feel for 650, its overcharged. Did he give you breakdown? Mind sharing?

If you can post a rough breakdown, then can determine. It might be the coolant that's ex in the first place. So if you have a rough breakdown, I can roughly give a gauge on what's overpriced.

My jb servicing comparison Which I felt was abit ex.

Engine oil, my own oil and filter
Drain and top up coolant, my coolant
Adjust timing belt, was misaligned by previous workshop
Change thermostat, my part
Change water pump, my part
Change radiator tubing, my part
Change radiator cap,their part
Wheel alignment and balancing
Rm 450

I believe ur de-carbon thing is close to 200rm as I enquired about it at another jb shop. How is ur aircon, better after the servicing?

Is the gearbox oil use yours or theirs? I think your gb oil could be the one which is exp.

my guess is the flushing items are actually by themselves RM300 around there right?

but hey, just bought 2nd hand car... for that price is quite worth it.

if you walked into a workshop in Singapore and earnestly say you just bought this car, i'm sure your bill will be much higher with all the things that they want to do to your car. so take stride in that. :D

Agree on the Singapore workshop. I initially went to one workshop in sg. Few days later noticed the engine temperature is not going up. Went to the same workshop and he say maybe leaking radiator. How can the radiator be leaking when the coolant level never go down and it should be overheating. Quoted me sg400 to do check flush radiator and does not included any repair or parts.

I checked forums and YouTube only to find out that it might be the thermostat or sensor. Changed the thermostat and all is well. The rm400+ I paid for soo many items in jb is not even half of wat he quoted for dismantle and inspect. Also changed the engine oil after 3k since I didn't trust this fellow already. And he misaligned my timing belt due to the vibration which I felt after the belt change.

Ok la 650 rm is a small price as compare to what you pay in workshop here. in my earlier post, the sg work shop quoted me 550 sgd jus for labour
whereas jet just do it for 450 rm and I'm very satisfied with Job done
