Yeah your fuel Rover's consumption is normal! I used one before.
Re: Car Talk Chat Room by kingschild123(m): 2:59pm On Nov 19, 2013
@dejimi If you're lucky it's just low on
transmission fluid and you haven't
destroyed your transmission yet.
Transmission filter could also be
clogged. Check your transmission fluid
level soon!

"Scraping" sounds like brake pad wear
strips - "grinding" sounds like the
calipers have gotten into the rotors. If it
just started you should be alright - do
not continue driving the car without
having the brakes inspected and the
necessary repairs done. If calipers are into the rotors
expect to pay quite a bit more. Lesson -
pay attention - when the noise first
starts have your brakes inspected and
pads replaced!
There are brake pad wear strips on your
pads that are there to warn you when
the pads are worn - when you first start
hearing that noise the rotors are still OK
- they are designed for that purpose - to
keep you from continuing to drive the
car until the calipers get into the rotors.
I have just change the pad and I still hear an increasing sound when the speed increases.although,the brake master guy said the brake disk isn't smooth as its suppose to be that they need to tone it.Am just been careful cos most of those guys are full of guess works.Have u any idea what could be wrong.Pls snd me ur email.Tanx

I just drove an automatic car for the first time I seem to enjoy it , but I an afraid with the story that it is difficult to move an Auto car the moment it devlop any problem e.g you can not push to start. Is it this true or is there any other way one can move an auto car while in no motion.
Re: Car Talk Chat Room by spotball(m): 9:37pm On Nov 23, 2013
wen an automatic transmission car develops a fault eg b3 ran down, u cant push it to start like a manual car but u can put the gear on neutral (N) and roll the car to a safe place. except u change the b3, the car will not start.

Come on man this is 2013 and you are still allowing these folks to do trial and error on ur car?? go and scan your car and come back here with the codes and we'll take it from there, remember always scan your car as the first option if anything goes wrong with ur car, its like blood test a Doc carries out when a patiant arrives.

Re: Car Talk Chat Room by soljade80(m): 12:54am On Nov 25, 2013
Hello All,
I need help please.
I use a 2008 Nissan Altima 3.5S engine. Sometimes in October this year on my way to Epe via Ajah, my transmission fluid pipe disconnected from the source and my car stopped like 10 mins after the LBS. I got it fixed but all my transmission fluid gone. Right opposite Abraham Adesanye estate i saw an auto centre where i got transmission fluid. I was duly told it would work for my car and it did. However about a month later my car was hardly engaging in gears. So i decided to buy the Nissan NS-2 fluid. Removed all oil, washed the filter and the new oil of about 8litres filled in.
My car wont move into forward gear. Only reverse gear works.
I need advice. Does this mean i have lost my gear? I need a very good nissan service centre and possibly a towing service to take the car there. Anyone with good infor and advice please?

Sup guys, earlier this month my mom gave me a Peugeot 504 car(I don't know the year of car but it should be around the 90's). The car still has its beauty but I think I want something better. Is there any possibility of getting a Honda or Toyota auto of recent time and at a good value of 2nd hand at a very cheap range of about 800k? am a student, that's why I don't have much to spend

Re: Car Talk Chat Room by Milito: 4:47am On Nov 27, 2013
Hello peeps.
Kindly advise. I need to replace my tryes. I use a Baby Boy 98. My plan is to replace the two front tyres first & then the remaining 2 next month. My budget initially was like 25k.

I later stumbled on a thread where it was advised not to go for tyres in tht my range as its goin to be chinko tht can mess me up.

My vulcaniser was also bragging tht there is a place he can help me get 1st grade fairly used, set of 4 for just 20k. That its far better than new chinko tyres.

I'm planning to sell the car 3rd quarter next year, that is the reason I'm reluctant in considering standard brands like bridgestone, Michelin & others.

Seriously, I don't want tyres to embarrass me as I'd be travelling soon; and so I'm now considering stretching myself a lil & buy 2 standard tyres for now.

Pls where can I get in Lag. I don't want some unscrupulous businessmen to go & sell refurbished tyres for me as new.

Someone mentioned on a thread tht bridestone has a ware house at Apapa Oshodi express way (Iyana Isolo) but tht description is not detailed enough.

Can someone pls give me a detailed direction of where I can get in Lag. And an idea of the cost of each P195/65 tyre. Either micheline, bridestone or any other standard brand tht won't mess up.

Although I'm still considering my vulcanizer's set of 4 for just 20k grin grin since I'll be selling the ride next year.

Greetings House,

Please I need your best opinions on this; I am considering getting an Infiniti I35 2002 or 2003. I read some reviews online about it, they seem to be positive. HOWEVER, I would like to know some facts about this vehicle - availability of parts in Lagos, ease of repair, reliability, fuel consumption, etc. I also notice that its not really a common vehicle in Nigeria despite its highly positive online reviews.

Please enlighten me more. Thanks.

Contrary to what erico told you, you have lost your transmission.
The atf you got from the auto shop and used for a month was NOT NS-2 and I am sure you know that.
You are free to spend money wastefully on other attempts to fix this but hopefully you will go through my other posts and also explore the web to let you know I am sure of what I am saying.

Furthermore, please note that when you DO eventually get to change the transmission, the TCM's eeprom must be erased (re-programming) in order for it to work with your replacement or you'll be back looking for another replacement within 3 months.
