My Mechanic Has Done It Again! by Unionised(m): 1:20pm 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.

....?....

As for number 1; come to think of it the mechanic might not be getting the right sway bar link for that car reason for consistent breakage. There is absolutely nuffin so big fixing a sway bar link if he gets the right one

As for number 2: the motor inside the car maybe giving way or the mechanism is giving way. Sometimes it could be as a result of water that gets in through the windows down to the door thay causes moisture so therefore rust would prevail

As for number 3: a thorough diagnosis would reveal what ia going on. Scan the ride. Your car is obd2 compliant. You can't continue to change fuel pump like who is changing a baby's pampers grin

As for number 4: how long has your car been tropicalised?

They said weak motor at some point. Now its been changed its worse. Spoiling the glass by the day.

Yes it is. Nothing comes out of diagnosis. Maybe I need i bigger scanner?

As for number 4: how long has your car been tropicalised?

Gazzuzz is honest and his labour charge (workmanship) is fair. I talk from personal experience.
