Car Talk / Re: Range Rover Sports Club by dru23(m): 10:57pm On Jun 25

Scientifically proven. A Corolla can not use the same oil with a Range Rover. There's oil for Toyota from Castrol and it's called motor oil while the one for Range Rover is called advanced full synthetic oil with guarantee of 20000 miles. Mobil now created a special oil for Toyota Honda and Nissan so that dem nor go do pass themselves. If a Corolla 2005 is using 5w30 and an Evoque 2018 is using 5w30 engine oil, is it possible to use the same extended performance oil on the Corolla? Think am well

Nobody said it's okay to mix
But mixing will NEVER destroy your engine in 5 minutes. If anything, engines run for ages on water alone without failing.


Yes you are rite...but at what expense ..coolant is meant not only to protect the engine alone. But other parts of the engine.......

This is why some cars are overheating , thermostat becomes bad . The radiator becomes rusty because of the use of water.. This is why people replace radiator left and right. And than people end up buying double cell radiator ......

It now becomes a vicious cycle of fixing 1 thing or the other. The hoses of the car is affected and replacement needed .. You than start to " ring" or replace engine .. You end up doing all these things until the car tires you .... All you had to do was just use coolant to prevent these things .. U basically accumulate unnecessary expenses......


The bible says : "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge"


The car bible vision: people waste money because they lack knowledge or understanding on how to maintain their vehicles.. Or they hast rejected knowledge and understanding

Mixing of coolant will NOT destroy head gasket sir
His head gasket already failed, coolant was seeping through the combustion chamber that's why it went down. The fresh coolant just overwhelmed the seepage and was deposited into the combustion chamber which caused hydrolock.


It is never ok to mix different color coolant....

Oh my word.

Here we go again!

I guess range Rover designs and makes the scientific coolants their cars use in space.

And yeah, a Corolla will explode if it uses the same engine oil as a range Rover.

Dafuq!


For weird reason , I support you on these .. This guy is off on his Medication ........

And on his early post. He said we don't need antifreeze because of our weather, na only coolant and we don't have freezing tempts .... And antifreeze kills the engine......

@kanuisagoat, @dru23 and others who would know.

May I know the best way to send money overseas using the official rate?

Na black market people use .. The official rate is very hard to get . even if you are using it for the rite things....

For now naija economy, government , people, etc na cruise control.......

Can you imagine the increase on duty on cars .. Duty that u pay 500k is like 1m plus now ..

And the government is looking for ways to increase revenues .. And the Naira is at a high time devaluation

So forgot dollar matter through official means.. It will lead to frustrations

I don’t pray to ever do Uber work again in my life, the amount of money you make sitting behind the computer in office in 1week an Uber driver car make it in 3months.
Look around the most wealthy or top richesest companies in the world are Technologies coy not oil $ gas or manufacturers.
You will always see Amazon, Microsoft, Facebook, Apple on the list.
It’s because there are no options in Nigeria that’s why graduate will be driving Uber upandan... claiming I work hard now to play later, I need only 7 hours sleep a day...
High paying Jobs full here like rice & dodo. Just do little certification with your Nigerian degree you set.
Even some black immigrants semi illiterate Sorry high school graduates get good jobs here. How much more we wey don get MSc ; PhD and suffer for Lagos (street sense)
My brother you and Gentlelife50 don drag me comot very soon una go say I dey derail thread.



Upon all these your write up .... The most important thing is for you to have your papers......

Without social security number , you will not be able to work legally in USA .. The same for Canada ......

Now unless you enter Canada through a visa program that allows you to work once u arrive .....than a working permit is issue to you ....

Now since we can't really know for sure whether you dey in the USA or Canada ......

But if you are in the USA and you are in School. Depending on your status you use enter , I hope it is legal .. Than if not you will have to do arrange marriage to get your papers that will allow you to work.. Anything short of that you are wasting your time........

From experience and the way you sound.. I doubt you are their legally in the USA.. I think the plan is for your friends to do arrange marriage for you..

You are not far from the fact but the truth is the
1. Time difference (not easy to keep up with happenings in Nigeria or nairaland unless I’m being mentioned. )
And
2. Your heart will always be Where your treasures are
You will tend to focus on making more money, friends and learning to understanding your new environment, work , way of life and fun... fun many people+ovens killing you with attention.
I was always on nairaland Uber thread because I want to learn more and relate with people in my field, though some moved to fake telegram group grin and asked for your marriage certificate.
Right now I’m more on IT forums and trying to mingle with people in my field and catch up with Indians and improve myself, cos this Indians full everywhere Nigerians full.

Maybe if I start selling oyel or lemon limca car, I will be making comments here regularly.

Life no hard here but levels just changes

Hmmm, that is riskier. Besides the fuel and the oil, the other culprit is the radiator coolant. A lot of us use anti freeze which is very wrong. We don't have any freezing temperature here in the country and so we tend to copy things that are not relevant to the car. I have driven under -2 © years ago and I know the effect of the anti freeze. It prevents the radiator to freeze but here, we wake up with 25 degrees in the morning. Oil is also a coolant dispersing heat away from the engine and good oil is needed. The Euro 6 standard for fuel is not available here and so we manage what we find. The use of low octane fuel is a sure bet to destroy the engine.

pls house.. what of incase you just bought a tokunbo car.. i noticed two things.. a toyota corrolla 07.. in the radiator; there's coolant there .. can i continue the usage; also, the engine oil; must it be serviced iimmediately or later on and also; the gear oil; should i leave it also?

Seeking help from professionals and experienced and to have an idea.... before the so called MECHO will be giving unnecessary advices


For peace of mind. Change the oil
For peace of mind . have a mechanic drain the old coolant and put new coolant.....

It does not have to be Toyota coolant.. It does not have to be green, yellow, purple etc ..........that 07 corolla you got tokunbo depending when u got it .. The price has gone up due to increase in import duty...


Maintaining your car from now on will be in ur best interest........

Coolant and engine oil .. We have it available.all imported from the USA

Dear N/Landers,
i have been driving my Honda over a year now. I'm always tempted to change the gear oil even when the gear has never given me headache for once.

My former mechanic then told me to always change the oil every 3 months. This has got me confused and i dont know what to do
please your advice will go a long way, and i will appreciate if this can be pushed to front page.


Transmission fluid is not something you change often. Changing it often will damage the transmission.

And Honda dw1 ATF are hard to come by and cost a lot .... Na fake dey market.....


Pic below .....If your Transmission fluid is like this or pinkish in color leave it .... But if it is very darkish in color change it .

A transmission fluid can last you at least 12months or more provided you use the original ..... But it is always best to always check the color conditions
