Car Talk / Re: Most Practical Location For A Fire Extinguisher by femicousim: 7:05pm On Mar 18, 2017
Hmmm.... I think the only need to carry an extinguisher is to comply with the law... and the best place is in the trunk. But really...who can testify about ever putting out a fire or seeing or hearing about anyone putting out a car fire using the extinguisher? Yes....due to faulty wiring a fire has started somewhere in the engine... what do you do?....open the hood to get at the fire?..... you would be wayyyy more likely to get burn than outing the fire. Racing cars... yes...passenger cars no....but...it is the law.

i have @ least 2 experiences, it was @ charity bus stop area on apapa/oshodi express, i was driving and then people waiting @ bus stop, called my attention to the fire, when i stopped, the Samaritans were heaping sand from the road divider, initially i was too shocked to do anything, then i regained my composure, took the fire extinguisher from under the seat, sprayed @ the fire and off went the flames, it was wire induced & NOT fuel, the other experience was @ the workshop

Car Talk / Re: Smell From My Exhaust by femicousim: 1:55pm On Jun 08, 2016
What kind of smell exactly?

Sweet smell? - a coolant leak flowing onto hot

Gasoline? - ignition system fault likely, lean air-fuel mixture leading to lean misfire

Exhaust smell? - cracked exhaust manifold

Strong exhaust smell? - vacuum leak

Smoke causing eyes to tear? - overadvanced timing or EGR issues, might also be vacuum

Dizzy feeling from smoke? - excessively rich air-fuel mixture

Rotten eggs smell? - catalytic converter related issues

your description of the problem is not lucid enough, then what kind of sound, growling?squeaking?grinding?whistling? are you sure it is only when you are reversing? are you reversing on a very rough road? if what you mean by right leg is the right wheel, then it could be brake pads or hub, be sure to also check the stabilizer linkages and bushings, and all other bushings in the rear.
Car Talk / Re: Front Left Camber 2005 Corolla Sports Changed 3 Times In 2 Months by femicousim: 10:33pm On Feb 26, 2016
sorry about that boss, top of my head, the car may have been in a collision before, such that the bushing is always in an awkward position, perhaps the "camber" is bent, trust me it might look okay to the normal eye but it might be twisted, or it(camber) might not even be for your car say a yaris or an earlier corolla was installed instead, i rather you change the "camber" altogether, lastly it could also be a case of very inferior bushings

my submission is based on the fact that the "camber" is actually lower arm
Car Talk / Re: Help! Help! Vokwagen Expert Needed In Surulere ASAP Thanks by femicousim: 11:19pm On Feb 20, 2016

Oil incursion into the radiator, points directly towards head gasket issues or (unless someone poured oil into the radiator)
How did the mechanic (Kazeem) explain the passage of water to the gear system from the radiator?
Both issues unfortunately are independent and have gone bad at about the same time!!!
Solutions - - - - - - - - -
Looks like a better replacement gearbox or clutch kit and a much better replacement engine.

the kazeem knew that the heat exchanger in the radiator got bad, allowing ATF sent through the radiator to cool off, mix with water. as for blown head gasket, it would be water mixing with engine oil through water jackets, you would find that in the sump not radiator, a radiator would throw out water violently or in the least bubble if you have head gasket issues

Hello.Just bought a 2006 Toyota corolla and will like to know all the necessary checks to make on the car.I will like if it is advisable to immediately change the engine oil and filter,the transmission fluid as it has about 153,000 miles on it, to flush the radiator as there is a look of rust mixed with the coolant..Thanks

congrats boss,
yeah it's good to have all fluids replaced, it helps keep you a good a record of maintenance, for you're certain how long those fluids have been in there, you may also check out the brake pads, air filter and spark plugs. wishing you accident-free and problem-free car

Good morning,

Please Bosses, my crv is leaking oil and my mechanic says they need to drop my engine and gear to know what the issue is. but i think it's the oil seal because this started after I serviced my car. please what can I do, and is there any good mechanic on the island for hondas?

Also, the under engine sand cover does anyone know the price?

drop your engine and gear?! top of my head, have the engine cleaned thoroughly, then watch out for new leaks, that way you can trace the source of the leakage. besides since you said it started after a lube service, why don't check the oil filter area and drain plug, either of them could have badly installed

Hello Guys,

I am driving a nissan murano 2004, i recently replaced the ECU ECM, the problem now is the injectors are not spraying fuel....my technician says it is from the ECU ECM....and considering the price for another brain box, i wish to know from experienced members on this forum advice the way forward. i will appreciate contributions....Thanks

why did you replace the ECU in the 1st place? were the nozzles spraying initially, when you replaced the ECU? have you checked for continuity to the injector nozzles from the ECU? changing an ECU should always be a last resort!

Car Talk / Re: Toyota Highlander 2011 Vs Toyota 4runner 2009 Which Is Preferable? by femicousim: 7:24pm On Dec 03, 2015

Thank you so much Sir for the insight, but you seem to favour the Highlander on technical grounds. But i was wondering the probability/frequency of having a timing problem regarding the 4runner. One more thing Sir, on a scale of 1 to 10, how will you rate The 4runner vs The Highlander. Best Regards.

you are welcome sir, funny enough, i prefer the 4runner because of my bias for boxy, rugged & ugly looking SUVs, BUT i was basing my response on your enquiry about fuel, comfort, family etc.

on the timing of the 4runner, i've only worked on 1 with a timing issue, and it's NOT enough to conclude that they usually have timing problems, i was just saying that i do not like the design of the engine because of the trouble of unmounting engine, when working on the timing

Car Talk / Re: Mitsubishi Outlander 2003 Problems - Already Scanned With Computer by femicousim: 7:00pm On Dec 03, 2015
that coolant temp sensor can make your car exhibit those issues you listed, if you say the problem remained after replacing the sensor, did you re-scan? if you did, and it was replaced with a known good one, and it still complains about the sensor, then check the continuity of the wire and the connector

you might check the EVAP system with respect to the fuel-filling problem
