I bought this oil at Gudu Market, Abuja for service of my Corrolla car 2005 Sport. I decided to buy this instead of Hardex Gold SAE fully synthetic oil. Hope the oil is okay guys

Please I need help, I don’t know why my ignition coil goes bad every month.
I felt it maybe that my current mechanic was buying terrible replacement parts but I have made order for ignition coils from elizade hoping that it will last better but I am scared it maybe something from car that is ruining the car ignition coils.

Has it gone bad too?

Give it time

Hello Oga Gazzuzz

Good day, I’ve come again. Thanks for how you helped me the last time, I really appreciate the good work you are doing.

The Alarm of my car goes off on its own, I’m talking about the alarm that prevents people from stealing the car, the one that goes off when you press the red button on the car key. It goes off at weird times like in the middle of the night or in the afternoon. I don’t think anybody wants to steal the car because I park it close to my house inside a compound of only four people. What could cause this issue please, this is a recurring issue that disturbs the whole apartment especially at night.

The car is 2011 Toyota Camry.

In a related or unrelated event, I just changed one of the TPMS recently and this only started after the TPMS issue. I don’t know if it is connected to this or not, other than that the car has never had any major issues.

get sandpaper and a 10mm wrench, remove all door switches and clean the contacts . If you cannot, pay someone to do it .

Has anyone considered insurance for his/her vehicle against unforeseen circumstances too?

We need to look into this as well. Or we prolly create a forum for this.

However, you can contact me if you need insurance on your vehicles with the certificate within 48 hours (in Nigeria). I can assure you, no stress

For more info +234-8137525700

NB: Avoid hasty criticism.

Good evening Mr Gazzuzz, I was the one that called you about the oil sump of an Acura TL on Sunday. I hit a big stone covered by water In Sangotedo which made the oil sump burst this is due to low ground clearance level of the car,is it advisable to raise it or change tires it came with 255/45/R16 in front while 255/60/R17 at the back. The sump has being fixed by getting a replacement but I don’t want a reoccurrence.

If it will fit, go for it.

But if you have bad roads, buy a car with better ground clearance

Lol. Why are you ashamed that your brake pad is making noise?

The only way to stop it is to buy original brake pads and linings.

Not those ₦3,000 Asimco pads.

Me self, my brake pads dey whistle. And I don't care, since I no get shame.

Re: Maintenance Tips On Cars. by magikalz(m): 12:41pm On Jun 03
I just won this clean Audi A4 at an auction for $1350 (N650k). By the time you add shipping and clearing cost, the amount will balloon up to N1.9m

This is why cars are very costly in Nigeria.

But I am still able to save like N400k though because buying it from a car dealer will cost at least N2.4m

If you also want to learn how to buy clean cars at low prices and ship them to Nigeria, then watch this video - https:///y4w4ty9v

Ok bro thank you, how do I buy original pad and linings? Is it new one or tokunbo?

There are two things involved here: Have you checked your brake hub to be sure that it is OK. Secondly I'll advice you to buy confirm Belgium or follow come pad.
