Car Talk / Re: Maintenance Tips On Cars. by ugreat(m): 6:38pm On Mar 19
Good day car gurus in the house, please I need help with the brake issue I am having with 2004 Toyota Camry.

At first when I noticed a flat pedal, I went to my mechanic, he changed the brake pads & checked the linings at the rear & confirmed to be ok. Then it happened again when I press the brake pedal the car accelerates more instantly before slowing down. This time I went to a brake specialist who said the ABS was bad & bypassed it, changed some rubbers that look like seals in the brake master. After too weeks the same issue occurred and just when I was parking the vehicle the brake failed completely. Now they are saying I should change the brake master completely. Please any useful advise and test to carry out to help resolve the issue will be highly appreciated.

That's where you would have started Sir. Please do

oga go and sell that scrap metal and give it to your wife. You even went as far a leaving the scrap for 4 year and you even came back to it again. your problem is bigger than I think..

you sound more like a man who spends money on a dead car and leaves his family in hunger and blames the government for high poverty and hunger.

if you have a wife. sell that scrap for her to use and feed the family or add to her business or use it to get a laptop for your son to learn programming.

Sell it for someone to go continue the suffering. It may be a little problem but somewhat difficult to trace.

Op, try put your location, people around there might know someone to help you out

Good morning all, pls I am having an issue fixing my peugeot 307 2002 old model.

I was using the car before it just refused to start and since then at has refused to start. I called my mechanic to check and he said is a rewire work and I got a rewire that worked on it and made me wasted money bcs the car still didnt start.
I went in search of a peugeot expert in ladipo and he came and ran a scan on it and told me it was the brain box that got issue but I was unable to replace the brain box then.
After 4yrs that the car has been left packed in my compound and went back to the peugeot rewire expert that we should get a brain box and fix the car which we did but the car still refused to start and the rewire is telling me is a mechanic work that light has gotten to everywhere it suppose to get to, I called my mechanic he said the plug is not shocking and there is no light in the wire self.
I called my peugeot rewire again and he told me he doesn't know wat he was saying and I asked him to come and check with the mechanic but refused to, so I had to get another rewire to help and check, same thing the new rewire said but he was able to check and realized some fused has cut and fix it back and light got back to the plug wire but the plug still not shocking and he checked all wire if rat has not eating any of it and he said all wire are ok.
Now I dont know what to do again, need help if anyone can help

Car Talk / Re: Mechanic Roundtable by ugreat(m): 9:27am On Mar 18

This is just the exact problem of my 99 CRV. It just goes off in motion, after some minutes it starts again. I have scanned the car, it has O2 sensor code which it has alws had when it was functioning normal. I can't pinpoint what was done last before this issue started

I took it to a mechanic who placed a call to his electrician, the electrician boldly said it's my fuel pump. To my shock, this is the last place I expected to check cos it's not up to two months since I replaced the fuel pump. But I don't have an option, so I allowed them to check the fuel pump, though mine was working but it's nowhere close to the one the mechanic brought out. The 'spinning' and 'power' were far better than mine. Mine looked weak. I requested mine to be replaced with theirs and the car fired well. I drove from Isolo to Lekki this morning with a smooth drive. Formerly, whenever i remove my leg from the accelerator, the car draws back with much power/sluggish but no such occurrence happened today. Still testing it sha. So far no hard starting, no drags and we're still monitoring.


Car Talk / Re: Mechanic Roundtable by ugreat(m): 11:39am On Mar 17
Good day,

Please, I need una help. It's my first car and I'm not really experienced about cars...I discovered that my corolla 03 power goes off on motion, then the steering becomes strong, I couldn't change gear and many more.

Off it and tried kicking it, but it'll only show light on the dashboard but won't kick. I later discovered that the battery light doesn't show once I ignite. I got a rewire guy around and he did something to the fuse under the steering side, it only moved for some time and situation persists.

Please, I'd love to hear a permanent solution to this as it's just parked in the house. I hope to hear from someone soon.

Car Talk / Re: Overheating Signs by ugreat(m): 8:00am On Feb 11

I use same vehicle and used to experience such but since I washed my radiator the spike in temperature stopped. Now I've returned my fans to factory. I'm also planning to return the thermostat which they removed b4 I bought the car. I suggest you do the same for better fuel economy, also makes your fan last longer.

Thanks for your response. My former radiator was an eye sore so gat to do away with it. The new one is performing so far. Will love to return fan to spec but needs a technicians closeby that believes in it. Any tech around Isolo or Lekki phase 1 area will suffice. Thanks bro
Car Talk / Re: Overheating Signs by ugreat(m): 8:33am On Feb 10
The weather is probably too hot. As far as your needle doesn't get to the hot/red zone, you're good to go.

I hope it's coolant you're using, if not, flush whatever is in there and replace with coolant.

Thanks bro for your response. A closer look at the car radiator showed alot of rust in the radiator though not linking. A mech recommended I change the radiator since it's very old and looking worn-out, which I did and haven't experienced the sudden temp spike since then.

Car Talk / Overheating Signs by ugreat(m): 7:28am On Feb 08
Please I need help with my '99 CRV. When in traffic, the temperature guage keeps rising but when on motion it's at normal position (approx. middle position). The two fans are working (running direct) and the coolant is not reducing.

Please what could be the cause. Thanks guys
Car Talk / Re: Maintenance Tips For Honda Cars by ugreat(m): 8:54am On Jan 11

My hubby recently bought Honda CR-V 2003 model(Naija used) for me. It has been from one issue to another. At first it was the gear but it was fixed,one of the days I took the car out it just stopped on the road and the mechanic came to check the car and said he will change a certain switch which he did. In the last 2days now,when driving the steering will be hard all of a sudden and the car will go off showing battery sign on the dashboard. The battery is relatively new,please what do you advice I do?

Have you tried scanning the car? Where is your location?
Car Talk / Re: Maintenance Tips For Honda Cars by ugreat(m): 3:51pm On Jan 08
Please guys, can I use 'blue gum' to seal the fuel pump area of my 99 CRV(recommended by a me hanic)? I sometimes perceive fuel odour when I'm driving. The odour is embarrassing

The pump was formerly packed with tyre tubes which has worn out. When the packings were in order,I rarely perceive the odour. Thanks

Brownish water may be from rust in the cooling system. Be prepared for leaks after changing to coolant.

You can replace with Honda Type 2 coolant or any ethylene glycol based product. Drain the system properly (raditior and engine) to get the bad stuff out.

What's the best advice? Should I continue using water?

Experience is really the best teacher. The unmarried will not understand. A man is hardly at home, the home is mostly ran by a woman. It's very easy for a woman to live with her siblings.

Sorry bro, the issue left and resurfaced right now after 10mins. Any further help?
Phones / Re: The Xiaomi Thread. by ugreat(m): 9:03pm On Aug 02, 2020

That one self dey. It takes a very good camera phone to capture text clearly at close range. And when we look at device the camera only fair well in good conditions and probably not the kind he was subjecting it to. There is a certain level of expectation one should get from a budget device.

The phone was performing better before, suddenly couldn't do what it use to do before.

However, which mode do you recommend?
