Car Talk / Re: Pls I Need A Very Good Mechanic by mayor2013: 10:51am On Jan 05
Hello friends

Pls I need a very good mechanic around Akowonjo/Egbeda.

I have been having issues with my Toyota Camry 2003 edition, 4 plugs on 2.4 2az Fe engine.

The cars is working but each time I put on the AC it vibrates especially when the car is warm.

During this time when the AC is on, if you turn the steering to either side it will vibrate with the rpm dropping to almost 600.

I have changed all plugs and coils are working well.

I have scanned the car with my obd2 device and the only error code is P1130 .

I doubt if this error is the cause be ause I have a friend with the same error code whose car is working perfectly well .

Could it be steering pump or the bushings / suspension

Give us better details about your vehicle. What ever star oil you bought for your transmission is pure fake. Go check what genuine MB star oil sells for. To start with run a scan on your transmission and see what fault code(s) is been pulled out. The result would be used in providing a solution
Car Talk / Re: My Toyota 2009 Top Gasket Got Burnt Yesterday by mayor2013: 7:42pm On Jan 01
change both with paper.

Mental gasket will cause overheating. Because there is no way Nigeria mechanic can do that with high tech lesser precision to get a 100% seal & compression.

This talk is for your pocket. Are you ready to pay the price. If Yes there are techs that can do a cylinder head gasket job correctly using OEM double layered metallic gasket. But you see where the problem lies. When the car owner say na 5k them Dey sell gasket. That’s where the problem starts from

Thank you for that advice bro. So that means this doesn’t require a rewire to check anything again. But he says the ECU doesn’t shock, please is there anything's to say about that sir?

Diagnose the vehicle first. Where is the location of the vehicle

Car Talk / Re: Es350 Not Going Into Reverse, But Gears Upto Gear 3. What Can I Do? by mayor2013: 1:19pm On Nov 28, 2023
I need urgent help guys. On Sunday, I was traveling to Enugu with my ES350. Everything was great until at some point I noticed a revving sound whenever I match down the throttle and the gear stopped going past gear 2.

I managed it to a safe place just 10mins away and before I got there, I was already perceiving a burning smell.

We thought it should be gearbox oil that has dried up, then we quickly paid the mechanic 75,000 to buy gearbox oil, filter and fixing.

He did and yet the issue persists. But right now it can get upto gear 3 on Sport mode, but still doesn't get into reverse.

What can be done?

Replace transmission

Car Talk / Re: Tell Us Your Car Fault Lets Assess And Fix Them by mayor2013: 1:14pm On Nov 22, 2023
Car gurus in the house @gazzuz and others. Kindly help.
Corolla 2010 always throws up check engine. When scanned it says system too Lean bank 1. My mechanic has cleaned nozzle, replaced plugs. Still the fault persists. Car working fine, the fault clears on its own and returns on its own at intervals.
Also my steering was loosened for alignment and VSC keeps flashing won't go off I guess the steering angle sensor needs calibration. How can I reset it.

To start with what are your long and short fuel trims looking like when engine has attained optimum temperature

Car Talk / Re: Water Shortage On My Es350 by mayor2013: 1:25pm On Nov 04, 2023

Thanks for the reply, where can I do such test? I’m in Benin. And about the thermostat, the valve is not opening well anymore, which is why it was removed and he said it is hard to replace.
If there anywhere I can get a replacement please I’ll be happy to hear as well.

Thanks a lot

Don’t know of where such is done in Benin. When it was removed why can’t it be replaced back.
Car Talk / Re: Water Shortage On My Es350 by mayor2013: 7:35am On Nov 04, 2023
All those test mentioned are guesses. All you need is to carry out a coolant pressure test which would reveal where you have any leak along the cooling system. You have started killing your engine by removing the thermostat. Am sure the quacks have even connected your fans directly.


Car Talk / Re: Can I Change My Brain Box When My Engine….. by mayor2013: 7:19am On Nov 03, 2023
That’s what you get when your mechanics start looping wires. It’s always cut and by padsby . It’s just the norm for them until they consume the whole vehicle. Ask your mechanic to check for a blown fuse first

Hello brother good evening. Please since June I have been battling with belt issues. I have bought more than 15 belts. I have changed adjuster more than 3 times.

Recently I was told that the belt I was using was too short I should get 2150 and also the way the belt was aligned was wrong.

I got size 2150 and used the recommended alignment pattern still the belt still cut.

Mechanic have checked all the rollers nothing is wrong with the rollers.

Please how were you able to overcome this problem?

What brand/year of vehicle is this. Engine size too
Car Talk / Re: Maintenance Tips For Honda Cars by mayor2013: 8:46pm On Oct 25, 2023
Hello house please I don’t know what’s wrong with my car 06 Honda civic hybrid, I was driving and I noticed the steering became quite stiff and eventually the dashboard lights started getting dim before the car finally stopped, i had to jumpstart it to be able to drive it home, while driving home I had to maintain constant speed b/c anytime I slow down the car start doing as if it wants to shut down again. My mechanic has been on it for two days now, he said he still doesn’t know what’s wrong? Anyone with experience with these kind of things?

Car Talk / Re: Please Help, My Kia Optima Won't Accelerate by mayor2013: 9:21pm On Oct 12, 2023
My Kia Optima Turbo GDI has recently developed a knocking sound. I took it to a mechanic for inspection, and it was confirmed that the filter leading to the cylinder was blocked. Consequently, I had the cylinder and camshaft replaced. However, since then, my car has not been functioning properly. It can't accelerate beyond 40, and I have to turn off the car and restart it to get it moving again. Additionally, if I go beyond 30, the car stops. The car has been scanned, and the turbo has been checked. I was told the turbo is okay, but the car still won't accelerate beyond that limit. This issue has persisted for the past week.

Those are code that came out when the car was scanned, the readjust the timing and fix the turbo but still the same thing

Your timing wasn’t properly set when the cylinder was replaced. You could have an issue with the boost pressure sensor or its circuit.
