GAZZUZZ:


please go ahead. I and every one else is waiting for the detrimental evidence.

When you called me a block head you were disposed to do that?

Pls hurry up with your evidence, no point burying it by your self.

This is the quotation that was given by the god for a vehicle that was just imported directly from US. Barely one month when the vehicle was brought it was misfiring. The guy said the engine was totally gone. Imagine the pains of spending so much to bring down a vehicle and only for one god to tell u this. It only took a roadside mechanic to change the fuel pump and do a general service on the car. Now the coolant this guy said 22k was actually 12k. Now guys tell me if you owned this car and u were given a terrible diagnosis would you be happy?

excellent!! I thought it was you.

1. Car came into nigeria in a no start condition.

2. Engine had been disassembled previous (in nigeria with owners knowledge) and as at when it was brought in was rattling, and had misfires.

3 vehicle came in dec very close to the festive period.

4. Fans had been connected directly

5.engine was running on water.



Rattling suggest mechanical damage, very common with failure of the oil cooler at the base of the engine.

Possible parts affected are.

* Crank shaft and bearings
* camshafts

Previous repair history unavailable.


2gr-fe engine, coolant capacity is over 6liters of coolant.

Toyota coolant comes in 4liter packs. 22,000 is for 2gallons of toyota coolant @ 11,000 per gallon.

You imported a vehicle in a no start condition.

I still stand by my diagnosis that and engine replacement is the best solution "LONG TERM" that a vehicle starts and moves, does not mean it is sound. I do not believe in patch here today and patch here tomorrow.

If you remember well you asked for my acc several times and even offered to drop the vehicle, but I declined.


Is this is your reason for calling me a block head?

I was wrong, 11.3liters of coolant required. Your. Preliminary quote is wrong you would need 3gallons of toyota long life coolant. It should have been N33,000 how did you manage to with 1 gallon Mr integrity? Did you mix with water?

I am terrible with names, bad at remembering faces, but I never forget a quote.

That is my handwriting. I remember you very well, you were on the phone almost the entire time you were at the workshop. (not the face in the display picture) you were in for less than 30mins and I said come in 2nd week of next year.

The price for that engine was only obtainable in dec and possibly early January. Current prices fluctuate between 650-750k depending on source. (you were better off replacing it then)

It is very easy to throw insults and call people names when you have nothing to loose on a faceless forum where you can hide behind a moniker and stir up trouble and think you can get away with it.

Time to explain your actions and you are forming busy.

i cnt really understand wat u guys r saying
a person brought a bad car to u and u said he had to change his whole engine, and provided envidence of ur own quotation which u admitted is urs,
dat same person took d car in a no start condition to anoda mechanic who got dat car fixed without changing d same engine u quoted, thereby changing it 4rm a no start condition to a starting car,
and nw u r making assumption, saying dat car will gt spoilt again because ""u do not blive in patching""
nw i hv a very "simple common sense question"" 4 u SIR,
"" wat if d car never spoils"", ""wat if d man never hv to change dat engine again..
i will b honest if i am to listen to any prediction 4rm a mechanic, God knws i will listen to d man who gets d job done first, (meaning i will listen to d mechanic who was able to fix dat car without changing d said engine), dats just common sense 4 me,
i am an i.t consultant and most time, we make predictions to a company or banks abt, d bad tins to expect or wen to expect it, or wat time to expect a security threat, or a bad server, ""BT FIRST WE MUST PUT THEIR TECHNOLOGICAL GADGETS, COMPUTERS OR SERVER ON A WORKING CONDITION FIRST" Becos there is a thousand reasons why an individual / organisation might nt b able to change a whole engine, an example is unavailability of funds, and time factor e.t.c
Hw will u feel if u cn nt access all your money in d bank for 1 week because their i.t guy needs to change d whole banking infrastructure, it is nt done an unprofessional, wat we do, is to gt some process running "FIRST,
** we send our customers d challenges to expect on a particular day tru text
** we keep d process running by making a particular atm
working or giving u d option of counter withdrawal only,
while d atm is on maintenance...
But we don not shut down completely just because ""we do not like patching""..
wit all due respect gazzuzz i hv a question 4 u
if d mechanic dat fixed dat car, has given airex his own prediction, saying dat said car will never hv its engine changed or its still hv a life span of abt 5 more years, who do u think he wud or shud bliv, d engineer dat didn't gt d car to start cos he diagnosed dat d whole engine has to b changed or d engineer dat got d car to start without changing d engine and for lesser charge.

wrong.

Car came in a no start condition into the country. Car was taken to else where to fix. Car was driven to workshop. I assessed car, and scribbled down some suggestions (that is not a proper invoice) now he claims fuel pump made a rattle go away.

You should wait for airex to explain how it went down before your long assumptions.

** i personally do nt think he has anymore explanation to do sir, because he said d car is already fixed, by nt following ur own diagnosis bt someone else's..
** and sir u call n estimated expenses of over half a million, scribbling down, when dealing wit such money they r no jokes or mere scribbling down, is either u r in or out.
** legally with just a date and signature of both parties and paid written, it becomes legally an invoice also known as an handwritten riciept,
i think we shud all just learn from this and become better in our profession, including me, except we nw feel there is notin else to learn..

Them plenty for NL. Those men and women with 1year oil pikin brain. They just come online to tarnish ones image and then when all is said and done they have nothing to lose. The most painful thing is, they have folks who'd just blindly follow them and swallow all their spurious allegations hook line and sinkers.

Here is a question for all.
Do you think the previous owner would have sold car as scrap or insurance company would accept it and give owner claim then auction off as scrap or at salvage value if a proper repair would cost less than $200?

Also he hasn't told us the first procedure and cost which was done to make the car start and move while engine was rattling. I think he needs to state that as well so we really know all that's happened to the vehicle.

Or mechanics in the US don't know how to change fuel pump and do general service as stated by Airex?
