Pls chief gazzuzz, what could make my car to be experiencing hesitation when in top motion?
It usually happens when I hit up to 100km/hr and above, mostly in the afternoon.

Please help answer.

Since you don't know when it was last done, what was put Into it and how it was used/abused

I'd recommend you do a full service and inspection using the manufacturer recommended oils and parts.

Some things like plugs may not need to be changed for now.

Keep the parts you remove from it especially if they are the original OEM parts.

Then reset the current drive odometer and start following the manufacturer schedule

Good afternoon house...I noticed my car makes some kind of creaking annoying sound whenever I release brakes gently, .. it doesn't happen everytime tho

Please does it mean my brake pad is wearing out and i need to get another?


And also recently I had my car oil changed by a friend cause I wasn't around, and when I asked what oil he used he said sea horse 20w50, whereas on my engine cap it said 5w30.... would it have any repercursion on my car? Or rather do I need to change the oil n filter again ?

Kindly waiting for advises

I notice that every afternoon when I'm returning from work these past few weeks, my car will be drawing back when in top motion.
When I go up 80km or above, i notice that the car behaves as if its coming to a stop, no matter how hard I throttle it down. Then after a few seconds or if I turn it off, it will start responding well again. This will repeat itself several times until I get home.

By the next morning, everything is OK. I drive to work without any issue(8km) untill when I'm coming back from work again.
If I drive at a low speed from 80km and below, I won't experience it, both to and fro.

Pls guide me on possible places to look.

Please I have a Camry 2006 v4. Recently when I put on the AC, at times it would.work fine for like 1hr after which the ac light will start blinking and will just be blowing air. At times it does that immediately I start in the morning. I noticed that the fans take a longer while to pick. I also noticed that if I put on the ac immediately after i start the car, the fans will pick and after like 10secs it will stop and start blinking inside. I just got it Tokunbo 4months ago and I have not done anything apart from servicing. please advise.

Venza Is 2.7 1AR-FE 182 hp and 182 lb⋅ft of torque
Rav4 is 2.5L 2AR-FE 176 hp and 172 lb-ft of torque

Besides that 2.7 is noisy

Brother, your prompt response can be a life saver.

Seconds after paying for the car, the seller went incommunicado for over 2 weeks now. I have been overly worried, I did my due diligence and every other check asides Vin verification. I am visibly worried my friend.
