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.

Hello, I own a mistibushi galant 2007 model. Before I traveled for December I serviced the engine and changed all the break pads. However during my trip I noticed the engaging sound changed. I attributed it to the fact that the load I carried was much. The trip was for 11 hours.
This afternoon I decided to cruise around my hometown to let my friends know I was in town. The I notice the engine sound did not return to normal. It is now louder than normal. BTW I have not change anything in my car of late asides break pad and wiper. Everything is still from factory. The milage is 89k

What could be the cause of the increased reeeving sound.

Buy any engine oil you find in the village and once you get home you drain and refill with the original Oando 5w20. But you need a professional to check the car, your oil is low due to leakage or burning, ie your engine is burning oil at alarming unusual rate.

1. Is the car popping smoke like human being popping champagne?

2. After refilling with oil and gauging, do you hear unusual sound even if it isn't as loud as before. Clinking sound like metal romancing metal. If the sound is still heard, you probably have damaged something in the engine.

3. After refilling engine oil, start car and first observe around the car if oil leak is noticed, then check exhaust for smoke, last but not least check engine for performance and oil indicator light on the dash board it will remain on not because of wrong oil but because something got damaged due to low oil in the engine.

Follow this steps and revert back, also prepare content of the list, no 8 is very important.

just manage it to get you to lagos, once in lagos, buy the recommended drain the 20w50 and refill with the recommended. your car maybe smoking without you noticing. let someone throttle down with gear in neutral or park while you observe the exhaust.

if no smoke and you are sure there is no leak either, buy extra oil just in case, while travelling keep your eyes on the road and your attention fixed on the dash, listen for that engine sound you heard, if audible, park and check oil guage, if low refill and constantly monitor the oil level.

when you get to lagos the car needs a professional checkup.

good afternoon house...i'm new to cars...my Toyota Corolla dashboard keeps showing me the check engine symbol and it's constantly orange and doesn't blink. I searched google to find the solution and they mostly suggested lots of different causes, some potentially very harmful to the engine and others as harmless as closing all covers in the engine and also the gas cover. got it close to mint. milage is about 87,000. didn't have to fix a thing when I got it. most of the solutions I saw on Google are more or less white man kin of problem and solution...I need something I can relate to. I saw solutions like taking it to the car station for a comprehensive automatic check up an all sorts of things. I'd appreciate any urgent help as I'm tied down until I fix it.

nobody can assist you here without you scanning the car. there are a lot of things that can cause that, a simple scan will save you cost and headache. scan and post codes then gurus will assist

Pair it. After which you try making a call, then turn the audio knob to the desired volume set.

The accelerator wasn't designed to be depressed by the left leg.

But if you have trained hard and gotten used to it, I guess you can give it a go
