Op is fond of always calling people out in honmusa's interest. (Like he did to Toyeeb and co). If u feel hon musa is an auto wizard, den distance shouldnt b a barrier to you. Mayor2013 is good at what he does. After taking ur car to road side mechanics who messes the system, u want magic to be done overnight.

Good indeed!!! asking me to purchase Charcoal canister in other to solve my EGR issue, using fingers to diagnose and test the EGR system, telling me to purchase a new instrument cluster in other for my guages to work correctly, whereas the charging system was bleeping the guages up. He couldnt even tell the charging system he fixed was overcharging. Make I no talk too much...Oga take your car to him, you go buy parts tire without resolution. That's Kazeem style if you ask me...

There is no need to ask for the name. I remember him bringing his car to my workshop mid last year.

I left this forum because of too many ignoramuses like this op on NL. From this lengthy epistle, I believe he should be able to fix his own car without getting any technician involved. Why come here to critcise someones efforts in trying to fix your 20 year old banger in this modern age. The challenges are many, even for the so called experts in the way things work in Naija. Car owners with empty pickets shouldnt be owning cars.

It is not my policy to join issues with clients but when it comes to my intergrity and competence, I do. While I will try not to bug you with an epistle, I will like to ask the original poster some pertinent questions of which i demand answers

1) when did this car came into our facility?
2) what complains did you give first over the phone before coming?
3) why was honmusa not able to fix your car after the lengthy schooling?
4) how many months after was this complain?
5) what compromises on your car were discovered by our engineers?
6)how much did you pay for this fix?

You are being economical with the truth and I owe you no apology

It's a good thing you left this forum

Good riddance to bad rubbish.

You call the car a 20 year old banger which puts food on your table as an auto technician

If they know the cars are abused then why go ahead with repairs.Why not tell the OP car is too old and abused and walk away.

Rather than attempting repairs and after failure come up with the excuse Car had previously been abused.

After all there is a auto technician here who only repairs certain models and years.He is not foolish for doing so.He is smart and knows his strength which he focuses on

Then tell the truth and clear all doubt. This topic should have ended on the first page. Personally, the OP seems truly aggrieved, but I was also expecting you, as the professional with a reputation to protect, to give your side and clear all doubt. All these lengthy talk gives room for diverse interpretation of things that have yet to be said.

Have you heard from both sides of the argument?

All of a sudden, 20year old car na banger. So when we complain of new cars with their unnecessary electronics, we should also complain of old cars because them be banger. Ok, car doctor smiley smiley

Mechanics with no sound knowledge should not accept jobs they do not understand.

A digital Kazeem that cannot fix a 20year old car,is that one a Kazeem?

two key difference in how op sees honmusa and mayor2013.
honmusa explains his methods to op which op truly understands. mayor2013 probably doesn't.
honmusa does not throw parts at repairs (apparently), mayor2013 does.
these two above are the biggest issues I deduced.
however, if you install an alternator on a 12 volt car that gives out 18volts, then you have a serious challenge. a simple live data scan would have shown that.
that Camry is a strong car oo. many cars would have had their ecus fried by that 18 volts.
nobody is perfect, not even gazzuzz or sienna or any other famous moniker here. but knowing fully well that reputation and good will is what fuels the auto repair business, I think mayor should have handled this matter a little differently.
my 2 cents.
I personally don't like throwing parts at repairs if the technician has not explained to me why he is replacing that part and what exactly went wrong with the part.
money doesn't grow on trees you now.

Same with me too.. I quite agree.. Sometimes. Before even taking my car to a car guru... I would have already done my own research to have an idea what's wrong with the car and possible fixes to be done..

no one is an island of knowledge, we are all products of our past experiences and actions. both guys are good to some extent else they would have been out of the biz a long time. some people are better.... well might be out of experience or knowledge....

as for me, if scanner shows o2 sensor... that's what we will change except u provide valid justification for other replacements

that's me - a product of my past experiences and actions.

perfect scenario.

mungo park comes with his vehicle to gazuzz, gazuzz sees problem because his vehicle is a 92 passat... duly used and abused. he chases the gandoki out of his garage

same Gaddafi takes same vehicle to honmusa, honmusa sees a worthy student and research instrument and also lots of pay while @ it

mayor sees some injectors he can use to service his ultrasonic injector bath machine and a parts- changing party.... loads of cash too


so those using 1875 infinity Nissan and 2016 Honda rx350 where do u fall in
