Check Your Cooling Systems After Acquiring That Tokunbo Vehicle by Mrdigitech(m): 6:17am On Jun 09, 2017
Hello guys, I got a Toyota Camry recently and the previous owner removed the thermostat because he was told it wasn't meant for Nigerian weather. The Vehicle was guzzling so much fuel like crazy. At first, I coped for the first few weeks. Latter, I started feeling the financial impact the vehicle's excessive fuel consumption had on my pocket. I decided to research online where I saw some threads about thermostat removal and its relation to fuel consumption. I decided go with the recommended guys ( not Kazeems ) on this forum. One said that he can replace the thermostat but I needed to verify from the previous owner if the Vehicle had overheating problems in the past. I did and the previous owner told me no. I didn't believe him though, but I decided to research a little more about a car's overheating problems till I came across the real auto guru's tread. I decided to contact him and he explained what needed to be done. I discovered that he uses a cooling system test kit which presurizes the cooling system to expose leaks. So he was the right choice for me. He presurized my cooling system and a exposed a hidden leak on the pipes (thank God it wasn't Radiator) I sighed. We fixed it and pressurised it with his kit and it was peefect. However, a Kazeem (Toyeeb actually) worked on my alternator earlier in the day and didn't fix the wires properly. This disconnected my instrument cluster and power windows. All the guages were dead. I was wondering how I would be able to drive home without seeing the cluster guages. How do I know the car's temperature was rising beyond the accepted level? But the real auto guru assured me that no overheating situation would occur. I took his word and entered heavy traffic. No overheating and I switched on my AC non stop and it didn't cause any problem. I drove 30km home and back to his workshop without issues. He has tools and kits for almost everything. The Kazeem (who worked on my alternator in the morning) I took to him to see the real auto guru and he was just surprised at his indepth technical abilities but he was still adamant and ignorant. He cleaned up his mess and I went home happy. The Kazeem I took was very ignorant and boastful that he doesn't need to scan anything. That he has lots of experiences. That good guys don't need to scan anything. That all they need to do is see the vehicle and know what to do. I looked at him and saved my breath. Guys, take your lovely ride to the real auto guru and stay a 1000 miles away from Kazeems, Toyeebs, alfas and Kazeem's distant relatives, they'll wreck you...

Iol...I wanted run to Honmusa for safety. The Kazeem abi Toyeeb sabotaged my car breaks, by reversing what he called "Vacuum." My break pad, which was worn-out but still very usable and soft, became stiff. I argued with him about the break's stiffness. That I came in the morning with soft breaks, why was it stiff The Kazeem shouted and defended himself that he warned me about it. That it got worse that day. I knew he did something but couldn't prove him wrong since I was inexperienced with breaks. I couldn't manage it to Honmusa garage before I end up running into a Range Rover Sport 2016..lol, The Kazeem ripped me off by an extra 6K. However, fixed all my break pads and linings...The total cost is shameful to state. God they....Guys! Flee from Kazeems, Toyeebs, Alfas. They have nothing to offer you but misery...

It's not impossible to troubleshoot/diagnose "some" issues on a modern car without the benefit of a scanner.
