It's reg. Rav4 02 model. The mileage is 124k plus but I don't trust it.
Also,.. I don't know what engine oil has been used before.
Thanks for responding Sir.

If the engine isn't smoking, what you will do is

1. You will buy a 10wxx and use, buy from a reputable brand, then check for two things

a. That the engine isn't smoking
b. That the engine isn't shortening oil

If those two things isn't happening, then you use 10Wxx again and the third oil change you use 5Wxx and confirm a and b for the car.

The reason is that if 20wxx was been used before and the engine is adapted to it already, switching straight to 5Wxx can cause irreparable damage to the engine.

Good evening house, i have a slight problem..i took my mums car for AC repairs in Port Harcourt, the car has been having leakages for years now, so in the process of tracing the problem they had to dismantle virtually everything in the dashboard and also the Engine too. Eventually, they traced the leakage to the condenser and replaced it.

The problem now is that after coupling the dashboard, the dashboard gauges stopped working. They tried to solve the problem but all to no avail.
Is the problem solvable?

Hi all,

I realised there is a need for us to have a thread where we can say it very loud. Hence, the creation of this room.

In this room, we can derail as much as we want, discuss off topics, etc.

But please, no derogatory words, sales, adverts, spams or posting. Other than these, fire on!

*Note that this room is not for posting our normal car issues and seeking solutions for them. We have the entire section, outside this room, for that.

Don't bother changing ring cos it doesn't last, professional engine overall personnel are scarce and they will charge you more than buying a new tokunbo engine ,just change the engine and move on.

hi Ikenna!
been some time oh.
I think you should just allow the chat thread develop. I think I know what ur trying to do but leave the option open. Unless u wanna close down the chat thread and maintain those individual threads that serve as mini chats threads.
How have you been?

@nomaison, if you have the capacity to change the engine, better do. That will give u more guarantee. a lasting. rest of mind. All you need to do is to ensure you get a good Tokunbo engine and a good mechanic probably an expert and a good auto-technician who can adequately install the engine while the technician will do good wiring of the engine.

Re: Car Talk Chat Room by Unionised(m): 4:28pm On Dec 25, 2016
Abeg, I don tire to dey donate for my mechanic.

Rav4 2003 version

My Stabilizer Rod has broken again! That is my Christmas present from him. Car just came back yesterday from his workshop. I noticed some strange sounds under the hood and imediately called him to take it away. It spent 3 days with him before he certified it ok. Now I've just driven the thing for 20 minutes and rod is broken! Grrrrrrrrr

Admitted my road is not the smoothest but 3 times broken in a year?

Something is amiss jare!

I need a new mechanic joor. No, I need an engineer.

Any one?

Let me list the issues you will be tackling now:

1. Fix my broken rod while tracing the source of the problem. I believe the system is not really balanced.

2. The drivers window makes some serious queeky noise while winding up or down, and this after some surgery last month. SMH.

3. The car drags alot. I know this because the mechanic says the fuel filter/pump is dirty whenever I complain. He cleans or changes them, I enjoy a smooth ride for say a week or two, then we are back to square one.

4. Engjne has been tropicalised (their word ooo). It means my fans are running riot. Hate that noise! Abeg, I need a temperature regulator, abi na thermostat? My mech says the car will over-heat if I try it. Well, yeah, I want to try it now.

Any takers please?

I stay in Lagos.

My playgrounds are Ikeja, Alausa, Agege, Ishage and environs.
