the invecs shifting is quite fast. the technology is the same as porsche's tiptronic.

i think you only notice the lag because the action of pulling or pushing the stick is a lot faster than the time required to actually shift.

It's been more than two years since its last real tuneup. I'm also having the rear wheels and suspension checked. It seems I'll still be hanging on to it for at least another year or so.

jeffback:



Unless you're into classic car restoration, it would be more practical and economical if you would just buy a new/replacement headlight housing.  Reflectors used in headlights aren't simply chrome plating.



Bravoexo:



What you're describing sounds to me like an ill-tuned engine.  Ask you're mechanic to overhaul the carburator.  The only way that gasoline can mix with crankcase oil is through a super-rich fuel-air mixture.  The fuel-air mixture coming from the carburator isn't being burned efficiently thus, leaving behind gasoline residue which the engine oil washes down as it lubricates the cylinder walls. If this goes on for a long time, you would risk an engine seizure under heavy to extreme engine usage.  I suggest that you address this problem immediately as you could risk exposing your engine to severe damage (bent crankshaft, bent valves, broken piston rods, not to mention wasted fuel).  As for the leaks, your mechanic must have overtightened the bolts holding your oilsump cover, thus rendering the gasket useless... It could also come from leaking oil seals of your engine's crankshaft, cylinderhead gaskets... if your mechanic is good and observant, he should be able to tell where the oil leak is coming from. If he can't solve the problem, I suggest that you get another mechanic.

listen up boys i am thinking of painting the brake calipers on my accord

but when i asked around they want an arm and a leg for the job. They

told me  they would have to take the brake completely apart, bleed the fluids, paint it then put them back together again. I really dont want to

spend a fortune and i dont want to start taking the brakes to bits myself

but i thought of carefully brush painting the sucker ! has anyone done

this ? Is it possible to get a good finish ? what paint do you recommend ?

anyone ????

di ba you can just do this yourself? I did this once to our jeep, nung pinag-papatraktisan at pinag-lalaruan na lang namin for trouble-shooting. all we did was just jack it up, take out the brakes spray painted it. no need to bleed. well it looked cool and it worked, neon pink brake calipers and drums.

Dont get offended, pero if you try to observe, cars that usually paint their rims or calipers black are the same cars that soup up their budget cars with irritating loud mufflers, and has alot of stickers on their rear, side or spaces where it fits.



Just keep it stock, people would admire you more, if they see you paint your rims or calipers black, they will surely notice it, and also know that its not suppose to be that.



try imagining taxis whose calipers are painted  with same color as yours.

You're entitled to your own opinion and we're entitled to ours.  Personally, I see nothing wrong about painting brake calipers for aesthetic purposes.  People want to express their individuality by their cars, what's wrong with that?  It doesn't affect you, either.  You can say what you think but please don't slam on his idea just because you think otherwise.

Post by: splerdu on September 07, 2003, 04:01:25 PM
re: caliper paint



this really depends on the color you pick. black is actually nice, especially if you use paint with high thermal resistance things will certainly look better than cast iron. will help keep rust off too. ditto grey or gunmetal, which people likely wont notice from stock.



on the off hand there are loud colors that tend to emphasize your brakes. a two handed sword, IMO. a car sporting big brakes, this actually looks good (aside from the other obvious benefit of keeping rust off). a car with teensie weensie brakes... the loud color tends to emphasize how small your brakes are giving your car a wannabe image rather than making it look badass.

yup. it is, pero if you have modded your engine properly, there is no reason not to get nitros, if you can afford them, or get a smaller nitros injection system para di mag stress yung makina mo, kung di mo pa pina-mod. OR better yet, run an all-motor 1750cc 288hp all-TRD 4A-GH supercharged and intercooled (stock yung charger and intercooler) on your toyota!

hello, yung car namin ford telstar, di ko sure what year model, probably 83, the suspension is rather soft (it kinda bounces like when going sa humps), what can be done to fix this? new springs or something? medyo pag sa turn din pag mabilis parang tatagilid, ano advice nyo, tnx.



another prob, the cables to the spark plugs are getting melted and a little burned tuloy sa spark plug end (red cables from japan), where can i get original cables or heavy duty ones? or should the exhaust manifold(?) be covered or something?



and lastly, medyo mababa yung idling, kc nung pinarenew sa lto, kelangan dahil dun sa emission test thingy, is this ok? or should it be increased to reduce the vibration?
Title: Perpetual Car Thread

regarding bouncing, change the dampers (aka shocks) on all corners.

as for the idling, you can increase it if the vibration gets to you.  afaik yung AFR naman ang ginagalaw para sa emission e.  basta laging change oil ka wala naman dapat problema yun.  doesn't hurt to get the muffler cleaned as well (carbon cleaning ba yun?)

the formula atlantic 4AGE produces 240HP and revs up to 14000 RPM and is based on the stock block and head.  the 4AGE lends itself well to modifications, but the parts to get it to formula atlantic specs are prohibitively expensive.  The crankshaft itself costs USD 5k alone, USD 2k for EACH camshaft.  The whole engine costs USD 25k new, USD 9k used.  So far, 240HP is the highest anyone from an all-motor configuration.  



Getting the same power in a forced induction configuration is simpler and cheaper, though.  strip the supercharger from the 4AGZE and replace it with a CT26 turbo and upgrade the intercooler and you'll be seeing power beyond 200HP.  wilder cams and bigger valves will help you go beyond that, the stock steel crank and forged piston of the GZ can reliably take it

Parapudaw..i used VHL hi temperature enamel paint. It says in the can

to be used between 59 to 75 degrees. So i guess it will work just as long as the garage is heated. It dries fast though approx 15 minutes. The hard part is the preparation. I have to put the car on axle stand, take off the wheels, clean the caliper with brake cleaner solution then tape around the area you dont want painted. It took about 3 coats to complete the job. I still have some left and i think i'm gonna do it also on my Honda crx.

A friend is selling her 1974 Ford Escort GT 2door for 20K... no need to restore, kasi lahat orig pa... emblems(?), decals(? - not sure kung ano tawag doon), BIG steering wheel, bumpers ala pang tama... basically, napalitan lang ng wheels, spark plugs, batteries, paint (a few years ago) and lahat kailangan palitan for maintenance purposes... nakatambak lang sa garage... needs tune-up, pero umaandar makina... also needs aircon "reconditioning"...



i have a 1990 corolla on the way (malapit na matapos from pa-repaint), pero nai-promise ko sa brother ko na bibigay ko sa kanya yun... so ala ako tsikot... dont need one, pero nakakainlove kasi yung Escort... also the car is 1st owned, and this year lang di na-register :)

Yaws, lupit naman! Saturn pa. taas yan for a 1600cc engine, kahit 1800. The SR5 Corolla that my dad bought and sold gets 8km/L, with an 1800cc 3T that's "smogged", US version kasi, eh. And this car weighs in at 1338kgs. Its very heavy for an '81 Corolla (2 door sedan). As xantrium said, tingin ka sa carbs, dun ang problem mo.



The other Corolla that my cousin bought naman from my dad gives him 13km/L Highway, 10km/L City with full aircon all the way. Sakal kasi, ok lang dahil 16 valve power naman siya, eh.



My other cousin has a Suzuki Fronte. P300 pesos (or 20 litres, whichever comes first) full tank na, 2 weeks pa before maubos. Aircon pa siya.

perhaps the mixture is too rich? it might do well to lean it out a bit. since your car is a carb, it cant' adjust a/f ratio automatically... i remember we went up to baguio on an old car many years ago. about 1/4 of the way up we had to stop over at a talyer to have someone adjust the mixture for the altitude. prior to that the car couldnt climb anymore, but went well after the fix. on the way down we stopped again to re-adjust the setting for the lowlands...

Also, munks, look at the numbers on the carb jets, if ever they are to be removed from the carbs. Primary jets should be around, ballpark figure is 60 (too lean) up to 85-90 (a little too rich), and secondary jets from 90 (I think) to 130-140 (for the racer in you).



Pwede rin na napasukan ng dumi yung carbs mo, kaya parati nag ri-rich condition yung mixture, mabaho na amoy gasolina ba yung exhaust? Medyo mangasul-ngasul (bluish) yung usok? Pull out the sparkplugs, basa ba siya? Maitim na basa? Amoy gasolina din? Dapat light-brownish yung deposit na makikita mo sa mga sparkplugs, specially kung late '70s - mid '80s yung makina mo. Pagpasok ng 16 valves, di na apply yung sinabi ko.

worse tires? The made in china tires being sold here in pinas. Also certain models of toyo. Firestone Firehawk I believe it was tire of choice for the US Ford Expedition, di ba?. Dunlop, I dunno. Bridgestone Potenzas had a tendency to be a bit on the greasy side, if you know what I mean. Then there's a model of the Bridgestone low profile tires being almost always used in slaloms here in pinas, I just don't remember the model. It is that soft. Parang F1 tires.

btw, can anyone recommend a good mechanic for this type of car?



a little history for you guys

- bought the car

- had a overhaul

- drove...ok

- had an oil change and tuneup (sa shell lapit sa amin)*

    * dito na nagstart ung problem... the mechanic started playing with the carb!!!!  kalas at binutingting yung parag float! shoot ayun.... napagana naman pero i wasnt able to check on the consumption before that.



so can you guys recommend a good mechanic or at least casa for this type of engine/carb? thanks ulit xantrium and redwing.

- looks kinda blue (or its just me)

- checked the plugs... amoy gas nga



do you people manually tweak your carbs? or u have your mechanic do this?



i can take pix of the carb for guys for you to have an idea incase you know what to do
Title: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: redwing_01 on October 01, 2003, 03:24:08 AM
If I did have a car of my own, I'd tweak everything, even my lady passenger (!), he he he. my brother tweaks the carbs of my dad's car, he's a certified mechanic. pero, tinatamad na ding mag ayos, nagbebenta na lang ngayon ng buy and sell na kotse.



Yung nakikita kong procedure nya for checking the carbs is as follows, take it apart, set the float angle, if set incorrectly, it may allow too much gas to flow into the float bowl, and eventually, into the combustion chamber. Kasi hinihipan nya yung fuel inlet tube, yung papuntang float, at titignan nya kung hanggang saan tumitigil yung hangin papasok, ibig sabihin, dun yung angle ng float na wala nang gas na papasok sa float bowl. dapat the angle of the float must be as parallel to the top of the carb cover as possible. Ang adjustment nun ay dun sa malapit sa retaining pin, may parang brass or copper na dila na may parang bulitas na hinahawakan sa taas, pin yung parang bulitas na yun, that pin is what limits the gasoline from flowing into the float bowl (careful when taking these parts apart, it may get lost because of its dimunitive size).



When finished, tingin na siya sa mga jets, kung tama yung nilagay, then he cleans the entire thing (disassembled) with lacquer thinner (or was it paint thinner?) and a brush, and leaves it soaking for at the most 1 hour, then cleans it again with this time gasoline, making sure he removes all dirt and grime from inside and outside the carb. then using a carb repair kit, he replaces anything that seems worn out, plungers, diaphragms, springs, screws, washers, etc, inside as well as outside the carb, using the replacement parts that came with the repair kit.. Then re-assembles the entire thing together, being very careful NOT to leave any new screw, spring, c-clip, etc. left behind, very important to note where everything came from. Then runs the engine and sets the correct idle mixture setting and the idle speed setting.



Kasi the solex carbs for your mits may mga screws sa tabi ng body, kung di ako nagkakamali, sa taas ng idle mixture screw, tatlo yun, it controls the separate gas and air mixtures inside the carb, baka ginalaw din, eto ang di ko alam kung papaano ma adjust. konsulta ka  na lang sa mga kaibigan mong eksperto sa solex carbs.

jangpz, i think depende din yan kung gaano kalakas sumunog ng gasoline yung ride mo, eh.



para sa akin mas ayos yung 'normal' na unleaded.





tried shell unleaded on my B14 (dohc GA14DE) - smooth ang ride, dati velocity nakalagay... pumipiyok eh.





also tried blaze on my vtec3, same thing... pumipiyok.. kaya nag-stay na lang kami sa super unleaded..



my friend's ESi was also using Blaze before.. pumipiyok din.. he just adjusted teh timing to about 2 degs. ayos na.. hehe.. bai bai piyok. ^_^

Depends what does your alternator operates on, if its using a IC or a voltage regulator.



My best guess your using  a voltage regulator, if thats the case you need to calibrate your Voltage regulator since it does need calibration from time to time with the vibration and humps we encounter on the road.



Try have your voltage regulator calibrated first or even replaced,  most of the time the inside does get corroded due to moisture.



what alternator to look for, thats a very good question, pls do look for a Alternator that has a IC, IC are more or less accurate when maintaining the 13 to 14V output.



The ampere ratings (eg Power output) of the alternator depends upon what engine you have, put a big alt on your small engine your engine will have a  hard time driving it. Usually noticeable when you have a full load, and you can feel your car vibrating, usually fixed by upping your idling.





Simple rewiring cant fixed the said problem, rewiring is usually done when your wires are getting crisp due to  wear and tear and umm over rated devices tapped on to them.



While your at having those checked, have your onboard ammeter checkd also

what i would do here is have your current alternator pulled out, take it to the auto shops and ask if they have something like it. they'll ask from what car model it is and they'll know the rest. and yes, a surplus/reconditioned part is likely available.

ziebart. mahal nga lang yata. but i think rustproofing is for unfinished metal which has not yet corroded. strip to metal ang gagawin siguro diyan, then the rusted spots will be patched up with new metal sheets (if necessary) before rustproofing and repainting.

most auto shop proprietors will know if the parts they sell will work with certain cars. i wouldn't worry about it for the most part.



kailangan magaling ka talaga makipag-tawaran sa banawe, o kaya magsama ka ng magaling tumawad. mas magaling sana kung mekaniko mo ang kasama mo.



other places are along taft ave and evangelista (not sure about this one). besides, mitsubishi naman ang sasakyan mo e. madali lang maghanap niyan.



i think there's a ziebart shop along C-5, yung malapit sa papasok ng ortigas. try leafing through your good ol' phonebook (the real one, not the one in your cellphone, hehehe) for more info. taga-Laguna ako kaya di kita matutulungan diyan. unless dito mo ipapagawa yan. hehehe.



mas maganda rin siguro kung maghanap ka ng ibang mga body shop diyan sa area mo. kung ako kasi sa lugar mo, medyo manghihinayang ako magpagawa sa ziebart. unless talagang mahal mo yang kotse mo.



if corrosion is already severe, they'll be cutting off the rusted parts. then they'll be welding new sheets (GI sheets, i think) to what is left. i've seen it done before.

pag 1600 cc pwede na siguro 60 - 70 amps. Plugs siguro he mean bolt placement ng alt mo. pag aligned ang alt nakuha mo, sila na bahala diskarte gumawa ng braces at brakets.



pag rust infested ang body, best thing to do for your car is to have it strip to metal.

 

while your at it, mag pa rewire ka na, 1978 colt is ancient siguro mas ok mag pa rewire ka kesa ma tow ka pag tumirik ka.



pag tapos mo scrap to metal, have your pintur do the undercoating, you can buy 100 pesos local undercoating paint para i brush sa underchassis mo at was sa interior cabin mo.



wag ka na mag 3m mahal yun at isa pa kailangan mo rin mag spray sa baba, pag ganun kailangan mo ng sprayer, gasolin station bagsak mo.



pag spray kasi manipis, baka maka ilang coating ka sa spray pag brush makapal kaso lang dapat ma tyaga ka

grabe tapos papayos ko nga pala timing for the hard start. kelangan pa kse na bombahin yung accelator to pump in gas. para mag start. then step on the accelerator hard para makahigop ng gasolina para magtuloy tuloy yung makina...

i suggest you stick with what is stock, baka umiba yung handling ng kotse, lalo na sa sharp turns/cornering and things like that, as far as I know the car's stock suspension is tuned and balanced the best possible way for all driving conditions while providing the best stability and handling,  its a sacrifice between handling and comfort



parang yung pagkakaiba ng mga luxury cars,

lexus- parang nasa hangin ka pero sacrificing handling

bmw-was matagtag pero maganda ang handling

mercedes- parang between the two

pero masarap imaneho talaga ang bmw, kaya ata tawag nila eh ultimate driving machine

tama si vincent, try to find out what type of shocks are being used sa front at back.



Advantage of Gas shocks performance, you can corner better because they are stiff, unlike fluid when you corner hard it has this tendency to bottom out because its soft. Fluid dampens opposite of gas, gas are hard to pull down, but soft on rebound, or sometimes both, hard to pull down, hard rebuond.  



Fluid shocks opposite, soft to pull down hard on rebound, so you get this less bumpy ride as oppose to gas.



In general



Unless you like driving at 100kmph or corner at 50kmph  get gas, or most of the time dami ka karga or pasahero gas is for you, matigas ang gas, pag dami karga di nat bobottom out you shock pag na lubak ka.



Pero pag lagi ikaw lang isa nakasakay gusto mo comfort and less bouncy ride, mag fluid ka.



if dont follow specs and change your rear shocks to fluid contrary to mitsu recommendation, you may experience wiggling or sometimes poor handling when the shocks are at play.



parang ang ganda ng handling mo sa harap, tas parang di sumusunod pwet mo kotse mo. especially noticeable pag 60kmph and nag oovertake ka.



sa tires, hmm away ko siraan ang goodyear phil, pero so far Im not happy with their tires.



Maingay, matagtag dahil hard compound pero on the bright side tag ma pudpud.

Pag stock lahat, try checking your tire pressure baka over inflated ka/

ive actually went back to my stock springs (Merwede springs yung dati na 1.5inch drop, im actually selling these hehehe) and the only thing that has been changed is the rear shocks (fluid type kayaba), tires are Yokohama S306, ive been following the suggested tire press of 30psi front 28 rear.  so far the performance of the fluid type kayaba on the rear has been very good, but in the front specially when driving in bumpy roads (note that these has not been replaced) has been very disappointing :( , I can tell you our 98 Civic has a lot more comfier ride than our lancer.  I guess the overall design is the culprit.  Ive also asked mitsu about this and they said it might be that the shocks are worn out,  because I always go for long rides to baguio or to tanay rizal eh?

ok, malaking bagay yung aircon.



ano ba yung driving conditions? as in kapareho talaga nung time na nasukat mo yung 6-7 km/liter?



either way, i-test drive mo pa yan. I drive at least a few hundred kilometers under different conditions (city, highway, heavy traffic, etc) before computing for  a relatively conclusive fuel consumption.



mahirap na, kasi baka umasa ka masyado diyan sa mataas na mileage sa pagkuwenta ng gas mo. nangyari na sa akin yan. natuyuan na lang ako bigla ng gas. nakakahiya din kasi may sakay ako.

muhkee

so how did you know na full na ang gas tank mo?  or full na tank mo?



Or how did u conclude na fuel tank ka in the first place? or baka more than fuel tank ka from start.



unless may dala ka garapon para sa fuel tank mo tas dun mo kinabit ang fuel pump mo pwede iyon. but if galing sa fuel tank parang di ata accurate na fuel tank/more than fuel tank ka.



parang law of averages lang, yung mileage per liter mo would become more accurate as you do more mileage.



fuel gauges are inaccurate, sometimes influend in sila by gravity, or somtimes electrical faults or minsan stuck up sila.



NA engine are carb engines in general, pag EFI mas fuel effecient dahil alam ang ideal F/A mixture pag idling or on the go,  when idling na prepredict ng computer na ano dapat ideal F/A mixture, after  accelerating na adjust and nag seset ng proper idling.



minsan kasi carb engine nahuhuli sa pag adjust or di syado maganda ang pag adjust ny ng fuel mixture, when after accelerating medyo nagigign lean ang mixture ideally, pag idling medyo rich, ng kaunti.



minsan naka pag accelerate na, yung F/A nya pang idling parin magastos sa gasulina.



Carb engines even sa 993cc liter engines can only run 15km wid aircon.

pag wala aircon around 17 to 19km.  thats manufacturer done testing, biased na yan, and yung makina brand new. 993 liter engine, less than one liter yan.



parang hard to believe for a NA 1.6 liter engine. hmm 20 year old na, hmm as well as other negative factors pwede makapag 17km per liter even patay aircon.

Ah but displacement doesn't necessarily mean consumption. From experience the 2.0li gas Revo consumes more fuel than the 4.0li Explorer (and is much much slower to boot). Generally a large engine running unstrained will be more economical than a small engine working hard, so if there's always a lot of load on your engine (a/c, high-output alternator, heavy payload, etc.) it might be more economical to be using a bigger engined (or higher powered) car.

explorer runs at 5 to 6 km per liter? which basically at par or lesser with revo 2.0.

Full tank using automatic release. Go around until 1/4th tank and then fill up to full tank on the same pump using automatic release again. Then I look at the trip reading from when i first filled up the tank and then calculate using the number of liters I put in on the second full tank. Yup with aircon and stereo.

by any chance you replaced your engine supports recently? if u chanced to a hard rubber engine supports chances are you gonna get a lot of vibration but youll be gaining torque. if you havent changed ur supports for a long time baka naman worn out na.





what I do is to try to knock the dashboard using my side of my first when trying to locate rattles.



if u here a clicking sound after pounding your dash, you try to work your thru, its best to remove what ever you can remove. maybe the glove compartment. etc etc.



sometimes if i wanna here lateral rattles or squeeks i sit at the drivers seat and jump up and down, and shaking the car sideways. that way you can here if its a dangling part or just a loose part.





Yakuini



even di ka naman high beam sakit parin yan sa mata. even without staring at it directly pag nakasalubong. stick ka na lang sa 60/55 watts. galing narin ako dyan. upgraded my headlights to higher wattages then i found out palagi ka conscious sa ilaw mo especially pag nagkakatukan, baka ma sapak ka sa sobrang inis ng ibang motorista sayo

Sa mga parts inquiry use your yellow pages. All of it are available sa market. If you can't find it call this no 3650015 look for SAnny.



AS for the relays, original Headlights from Japan even HI-wattage doesn't require relays unless you're installing a HID system. Watch out sa mga unbranded Lights that costs below 1000, they are ususally inferior in built so they sometimes explode inside or make your hdlyt lens burned out coz of too much heat. I usually recomend brands like Raybrig or Koito or Philips. Lowest priced HDlights costs 1500 in our shop. HID costs around 25T. Watch out for those fake BRANDS, andami na kse sa banawe they sell much lower than the orig one.



As for the  one having prob sa Power Supply sa car, check your lines esp the ground connecting your  (-) terminal to the body. Ususally loose e2 w/c causes lost in power supply kaya humihina an lights, horn etc. If the problem persist try upgrading the size of your battery. And if you upgraded your lights to hi-wattage i recomend installing relay sa HORN mo, for sure hihina e2 esp @ night.

Man that's almost like having a try before you buy on a car.  If you don't like it, don't pay.  Its pretty obvious how financially successful this hair-brained scheme was.



As for oil, having a filter that can segregate water and properly trap small debris will effectively make the engine oil last much longer.

i got a flat tire on the same damn wheel for about three times these last two months. all those times i had it vulcanized, not one problem was found on the tire itself. yesterday, the tire folded and has been rendered unusable (buti na lang hindi ako sa manila inabot nung thursday).



i'm worried the same thing will still happen even with a new tire. we here are speculating that the rim itself is the problem. i'm thinking of having all the damn rims replaced.



just in case, does anyone know where to get a good deal on some 15" mags? i'll be looking around banawe, of course, but other than that, baka may ibang nagbebenta. i don't have a lot of cash to spend on this, so i'll be getting used ones, if ever. doesn't have to be that fancy, just decent looking and in good condition.

Need some advice here.  Have an '87 boxtype lancer with recent electrical problems.  Right headlight going weak, horn sometimes doesnt work, dashboard leds dim, etc.



Then on day it stalled...got it towed home and my bro told me my battery was undersized so he gave me his 2sm battery (working fine) and bought a new one for himself.  (FREEBIE)



After too weeks, stalled again, battery discharged.  So i bring it to a shop and they say it's cause my alternator was soaked in oil (had a leak before, but fixed now).  So he cleans it, changes the voltage regulator.  (P1,200)



After a week, stalls again! battery discharged.  So I bring it back thinking it should be under warranty, right?  He tells me now it's because something in the alternator burnt (that coil thing?) and it's either i have it assembled or change it whole.  So after some heated debate, I agree to just get a surplus-original alternator.  (P3,500 minus P1000refund = P2,500)



So i return today thinking i'm down P3,700 and it better be fixed!  So when I get there this morning he freakin tells me that the battery won't charge.  The alternator is ok, but the battery won't charge? What now? Am I just unlucky or is this guy playing me for a fool?  I dunno what the heck is wrong with this car and I'd be damned if I bought a new battery for P2,000 and this problem still persists.



Can anyone please give me some advice here because frankly, I don't know much about cars.

You might want to check for yourself if the battery is shorted or if there's a grounding problem. Also, if that car was mine, I'd consider having it rewired too.



Holy sh*t, sobra naman yung singil sa iyo para sa voltage regulator! Mag-canvass ka na rin kaya ng mga singil sa ibang shops. Medyo hassle, pero mas may tiwala ako dun sa mga shop na ikaw ang pinabibili ng piyesa.

how do i check it myself if its shorted? cause that mechanic i went to last either doesn't know what he's doing or is really just cashing in on MY ignorance.  



he said it's 850 for the voltage regulator, 350 for labor of pulling out the darn thing. do you know of any shop na trusted and good service na hindi taga sumingil? i live in cubao area by the way.

Remove your Voltage regulator, and have your Alternator replaced with a IC type.



Voltage regulators are unreliable and dangerous too, engine vibrations and jarrins, will decalibrate it, overcharging or underchargine your system and battery.



both are dangerous, overchargine your batt can make it emit noxious gases like sulfur and theres a possibility it will explore, undercharging it will stall the engine, dangerous when on a highway highspeed run, someone is tailgating you.





Obviously your electrician is not skilled enough, some shops will resolve the issue with a day or two.



IMHO, find another shop, if they say you need a rewire, most probably you need it. Your car is almost 20 yrs old.
Title: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: fish23 on September 16, 2004, 08:28:07 PM
@sig,



you mean replace the entire alternator with a different one? or just one of the parts in it?  



i had a feeling there might be a ground or something connected with the wiring because the problems i experienced before were random, like the horn sometimes working, sometimes not.



i asked the electrician if maybe something is grounded or something and he keeps saying ok naman daw.  nonetheless, how much on the average would a rewiring job cost, just so i'll know what to expect?



thanks for the tips by the way.
Title: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: Sig on September 16, 2004, 09:03:44 PM
yes replace the whole Alternator, surplus Alternators comes with IC.



Its a common practice among Elec shops, that If the IC dies, they replace with a Voltage regulator. Which is a very dangerous thing to do if not calibrated weekly.



If your Battery is grounded in anyway, you can put insulation foal on where your Battey sits.





My suggestion is, replace your alternator with a IC one, and do a rewire.
Title: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: Sig on September 16, 2004, 09:08:56 PM
last time we had a project car rewired it cost us 6.5k materiasl included,





horn has a circuit of its own, its separate from the Ignition circuit, although all of them has only one source for ground,  they are taped on the battery separetly. if its a massive grounding like you described, i doubt it if you could start your car

for the meantime you can put  a insulator foam or matting under your battery and if your car is parked or after you used it, you can disconnect the battery to prevent it being discharged, by disconnecting the - first, then the +, to avoid being electricuted.

go to banawe, a surplus alternator with IC cost around 1.2k. Not the expensive, and do the rewire to for your car to be safe.



its your life, if you go on highspeed runs and your car dies on you, your not only endangering yourself, but also cars behind you

why do u need to install a aircon system? what exacty is included in that 7k?





maybe the aircon is the cause of your problem, especially when your alternator is not charging right, everytime your aircon compressor engages you have this dimming of lights effect.



try to observer your car tonight, if indeed it is true, try to switch your aircon, then later turn it off and observe the diference.

@sig

2 mos ago i got into a wreck (fell asleep and rammed into a tree just 100 yards from my gate) and after i had the car restored, i had the aircon installed: evaporator cleaning, system flush, freon charge, expansion valve, drier, fanbelt, condenser, hotling tubes and nuts. one of the symptoms of the car was the dimming of the right headlight only.  had it adjusted several times, but would still go back to being dim after a few days.



@al  

after aircon was installed, la naman problem sa temps, but it did have an effect.  i can feel it when i step on the gas, when the aircon is off, it runs more smoothly.



@lahar

yup, saturn engine.  is that not a good engine?  it was overhauled early 2003.  still, it doesn't go as fast as it used to.  



i've heard people say it doesn't cost too much to maintain this car cause parts are common and not that expensive, but quite frankly it's been a money pit this year.  I've spent almost 50k this year (well, most of that is because of my ignorance, falling asleep while driving) and to think i could've used that to beef up my system! =(

its a good engine, reliable and yes easy to maintain. but lets face it, its almost 20 years old. siyempre metal/material fatigue from years of service have taken its toll. it won't be as preppy as it was 17 years ago.

sabi nga nila, "para kang nagtapon ng pera sa kalsada at unti-unting pinupulot ulit", yeah tapon talaga ang pera sa sasakyan. this month alone I spent 20k for new tires, pressed rims, wheel alignment and clutch repair kits. it would have cost more had I not done some of the labor myself (the primary and secondary clutch replacement).

Title: Perpetual Car Thread

Yeah, the 1.6L V spec MZ3 is the one I'm looking at right now... just don't know if I'd like the hatch version...(which is the cheaper one)
Title: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: orly_andico on January 27, 2005, 11:36:42 AM
tagal daw ng waiting list ng mazda3... mga april pa daw if you reserve now.  :P

imho best buy is the midrange mazda3 (forgot exact model letter). going from the low-end one kasi, you gain passenger airbag and ABS (pretty important safety features). pero going from the mid-range to the 2.0L one, what you get is fluff -- rain-sensing wipers, moonroof, better headlights. well also the 2.0L engine pero the 1.6L engine is a duratec with sequential valve timing, the 2.0L is an older design, kasi the 1.6L is a *lot* more matipid due to the smaller displacement and the S-VT.

weird thing though.. all the mazda3's use a 5-lug rim, parang "bigger" car. although amazingly the mazda3 has the same wheelbase as the mazda 626, so it seems to be bigger than the usual compact.

now if only i could scrounge up a down payment  :lol:  
Title: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: bravoexo on January 27, 2005, 12:14:50 PM
I heard that too...pero sa 2.0L ang masmahaba daw... and yes, the 1.6L V spec is the midrange of the three....but I'm still at a toss between a hatchback or a sedan....

The only other car I was eyeing was the Civic 1.6L VTi/S but it being a SOHC engine really put it down for me...
Title: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: orly_andico on January 27, 2005, 12:26:48 PM
mas matipid pa rin yung civic kasi VTEC3 na yun with both variable valve timing, and variable valve lift. of course mahal ang maintenance ng civic.

another thing you have to consider is that auto-tranny lahat ng mazda3 (dunno about the hatch but in the US the 2.3L hatch can come with a manual tranny). so gastos din sa gasolina yun.

a friend who's test-driven the 1.6L mazda3 says it's sluggish and underpowered. i don't doubt him kasi 105ps lang yung engine, tapos auto-tranny pa. i still love the car though (i'm a big mazda fan). *still stuck with my gas-guzzler 2.0L mazda 626 though*  :(
Title: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: orly_andico on January 27, 2005, 12:28:32 PM
PS mas mura yung hatch kaysa sa sedan? 780k yung mid-range MZ3 diba? how much is the hatch? cheaper than the entry-level MZ3? i kinda like the hatch kasi malaki yung trunk space (although it still won't approach a pickup in cargo space!)
Title: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: baron on January 27, 2005, 03:03:15 PM
I'm not sure, but the last time I checked, the 3 hatchback was 755k, versus 719k to the S model. So you're basically paying 36k for the hatchback look. My comments on the 3:
1) Looks fantastic! I would buy this car for the looks alone.
2) Despite being big car, there's too little leg space for me.
3) Its quite heavy compared to other cars in its class, paired with its weak engine, well, it doesn't perform as good as it looks.

Because of #1, I'd choose the sedan=) Is this car made in Laguna? If so, that's a plus factor.
Title: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: orly_andico on January 27, 2005, 05:19:53 PM
Yes it's made in Laguna along with the Escape, Tribute, and Lynx.  :)
Kaya nga daw mas mura siya than the competition (Altis, Civic) for the same trim level, because Ford gets a tax break from assembling them locally. Only 30% daw nung Laguna production is consumed locally, the rest are exported.
Title: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: orly_andico on January 27, 2005, 05:23:29 PM
.. isa pa pala... i think +36k for the hatch is ok. sakit ng 626, ang liit ng trunk opening. the trunk is big enough, but the *door* is too small. i'm not sure if this problem was fixed in the 3, pero i'd rather have the hatch kasi malaki talaga yung tailgate.

OT 50k lang ang difference ng 2.3L and 3.0L na tribute? (1.130M vs 1.180M) totoo ba ito or just typo? parang di kapani-paniwala...

It is actually manufacturer recommended & but modified via a drilled hole. The km/liter  actually increased from 8.5km/ltr to 9.3km/ltr. I was just asking two questions actually. 1st - if an improvement in mileage can be an indication that something needs fixing
2nd - if 9km/liter is 'normal' for a 1999 Civic Vti Automatic.

It is just another generic light blue Civic, he he he. I tried the plugs since it was given to me by my boss & I also read positive things about it in the newspaper.

- The 5 door hatch is HAAAWWWTTT!!!!!  Even my officemate who had the Honda Jazz as his primary buy switched to the hatch.
- I test drove the Hatch...and it's one swabe ride.. he he he...
- It was a silent ignition... I couldn't tell if the engine was running or not.
- The Activematic works great.  
- It's kinda like the Dodge Neon inside...except the rear space is bigger...w/ a better dashboard.
- S level nga lang, so no ABS, no EBD at 15'' rims lang (drove w/ 17 rims)
- Curiously enough, the Sedan's space is optically bigger (looks bigger) than the hatch...strange...  oh, the back does indeed have that tray that can hold a case of beer in place...

yeah, the 8-9km/Li isn't bad considering that mazda's are said to be poor at fuel consumption. tipid na nung 8-9km/Li di ba?

then again, i spent 1K a week (yes a week!) on gas kasi 5x a week my route is Novaliches - UP - Makati (via Katips-White Plains-Ortigas-EDSA) - Novaliches (via Nagtahan-PIY Margal-Araneta-Del Monte-Congressional-Mindanao Ave).  Sumusundo kasi ko sa Makati and hinahatid sa pagbaba ng Nagtahan nowadays.

rear disc brakes are installed to reduce brake fade or improve wet weather braking.  unless sa slalom siya ginagamit, doubtful ako na mag fade yung rear brakes ng pride (being lightweight and fwd).  if your dad wants to improve braking performance, he might want to consider using intermediate tires (unless nagawa niya na ito).   don't bother r-compounds.  the pride does not generate enough power or cornering force to require such tires.  but, then, who knows:  baka plano niyang lagyan ng bp turbo motor (from the 323 gt)

that said, you could look for festiva brake kits sa u.s.

Also, someone says I should look for the Millenium Edition as this is the best model out there prior to the new model (GRX)

Someone offered me one for 650K, 2001 model and millenium edition (daw). Is that their current running price? Also, how can I tell if its a millenium edition?

dom_08 ... unless super faded/scratched/pangit na ung kulay ng beetle, i suggest you take care of the engine first para masiguro mo na ok ung fuel consumption nya.

better fuel consumption -> more savings on gasoline expenses
more savings -> mas mabilis ka makakasave for mags/tires/paint(hilamos)/restoration.  opinion ko lang po :)

pero kung dad mo naman ang gagastos for the repaint and restoration then go for it! ;) hehehe

also ... make sure na malinis palagi beetle mo (inside and outside).  chicks like clean/neat cars ;)

Starexes 2000 and up are about 550k-700k, the 2003 and higher is pegged at 1M.

Issue lang naman ng officemate ko na may Starex eh yung kalawang sa fenders. May foam insulator kasi doon na nag-so-soak-up ng tubig. Most Starex owners have this removed, wala naman use ito sa climate natin.

dean,
granny driver talaga ako ngayon. my 626 has a busted crank sensor so it's not firing the cylinders in sequential mode (how i've let this problem fester for over a year is beyond me... nakakatakot magpalit ng distributor kasi baka pumutok nanaman (!!!) yung engine computer).

net result (of "not firing in sequential mode...") is that, the engine burps like crazy above 2000rpm. so yes, i shift at 2000rpm ALL THE TIME and i can only reach 70kph in 5th gear. hahahahahahaha!!! i also suspect (from the description of "batch mode EFI") that 25% of the fuel is getting dumped into the tailpipe (because "batch mode" means fire all injectors simultaneously, and ONE of the cylinders is ALWAYS gonna be in its exhaust cycle).

right now mahaba ang waiting-list para sa Picanto. and I've heard stories that some dealers are taking advantage of its demand by raising prices. maganda kasi reviews sa 'net. my boss is waiting for his turn.

Post by: orly_andico on January 31, 2005, 11:27:29 AM
BTW i "determined" that the distributor crank sensor is at fault using the time-honored remedy of a jumper and an LED. count the blinks of the LED. parang naghahanap ng BIOS fault code :)

now i have to "scope" the crank and cam sensors to make sure the crank sensor isn't putting out the requisite square wave pulses. unfortunately i don't own an oscilloscope, so i'm gonna use this free software that turns your PC *sound card line in* into a low-bandwidth oscilloscope (but enough to scope a car engine).

why am i doing all this... because mahal magpagawa sa casa, more so on an ancient (10 years+) car with expensive parts. once i've verified that the crank sensor is well and truly busted (it can't be the computer, kasi napalitan ko na yun thansk to the ka-engotan of some mechanic who shorted the A/C relay which is directly wired to the computer!!!) maghahanap nalang ako ng surplus distributor 'coz the crank sensor can't be replaced by itself.

-- yeah, now i hack the car's computer out of necessity instead of overclocking.  :P

brake fade happens when you over-use the brakes, brakes heat-up causing loss of grip by the pads. when going downhill its safest to lower your gear and use the engine brake. sabi nila masisira yung makina, well yung makina pwede maayos, yung buhay hindi na.

brake locks? huwag kasi masyado mabilis, harurot yata kasi kuya mo magpatakbo. mararamdaman naman yan kung mag-lolock, pag nag lock bitawan mo yung brake para maka-ikot yung gulong at mabalik yung control then apak ulit.

well. it depends on the build quality of the header.

4-2-1 =  good for daily driving, circuit racing (good for low to middle part of the powerband)
4-1  = sacrifice torque but good on the upper part of the powerband (for drag applications)

fafa japol,

i'm on 16" wheels. 16X7, with 205/50ZR16 tires.

you can refer to this site if you wanna get more info on changing tire sizes:
http://www.1010tires.com/tiresizecalculator.asp (http://www.1010tires.com/tiresizecalculator.asp)

as for expenses... you might wanna check what rota has to offer. they're priced pretty good, they're light and they're durable as well. maybe you can get a good set of 16's for around 20k or maybe even less. as for tires, my yokohama ES100's sized 205/50ZR16 go for around 3.3k a piece so prolly set 13k for the tires...

Thanks lahar for that foam info. Very informative.

I visited some establishment here selling 2nd hand cars noticed that their vans both has the SVX and RV badge.

Also, they told me that one way of checking if the van is the millenium edition is its chrome grill...is that true? Any other way of checking?

2003-04 CRDI starex are not from casa AFAIK. Sabi nila black market daw yun from Standout and most of them daw are not tropicalized kaya madaling kalawangin...not sure if this is true...But yes, CRDI is way faster than the TDIC.

Any other things to consider in buying 2nd hand starex?

Also, ano kasi tawag doon sa process in checking the engine's compression ba yon? Its the one that lets you know if the car's engine is in good condition.

i have a 93 Lancer GLi. yung RPM nya medyo wild. naka idle without stepping on the gas at neutral shift. (yung menor ba mismo..) para bang hinihika.

what do you think?

thanks in advance.

2003-04 CRDI starex are not from casa AFAIK. Sabi nila black market daw yun from Standout and most of them daw are not tropicalized kaya madaling kalawangin...not sure if this is true...But yes, CRDI is way faster than the TDIC.

alam ko meron din CRDI na starex ang mga hyundai dealerships dito siguro may ibang model na sa blackmarket lang meron.

this is a common problem on lancers and galants. it's a problem with the idle sensor.

from what I heard, it's pretty expensive kung sa casa mo bibilin. Try checking out your favorite banawe shop first.

taggy,
it's not the idle sensor, but the "idle up valve" (mitsu terminology) or the "Idle Air Control" (everybody else's terminology).

mahal nga yan sa casa, 10k+ but there are people who can overhaul it for 2k or so. since i don't have a mitsu (yes they are very well known for having this problem) i can't tell you anything about that but go over to clubmitsu i'm sure they have lots of contact info.

my turn to choose a car.  

we're replacing our 2002 nissan sentra GXE.  right now were left with two choices,  2005 volkswagen passat wagon OR the 2005 subaru outback 2.5i limited edition with an option to upgrade to 250 HP boxer engine (the same engine in wrx).  we're leaning towards subaru right now.  we did a test drive and we really loved it.  the only thing we didn't liked was the rear leg room.  yun naman yun advantage ng volkswagen.  yung styling din mas angat yung VW.   sa handling mas maganda sa subaru.  both have the sportshift features.  

other cars we considered before we arrived at these two were: honda CRV, Ford escape, honda element,  toyota highlander and subaru forrester.

subaru outback 2.5i limited edition (http://www.subaru.com/servlet/showroom?model=OUTBACK&trim=25I_LTD_WAGON&command=overview)

volkswagen passat 4motion wagon (http://vw.autodatadirect.com/asc/config/frameset.asp?Acode=USB50VWC044A0&Language=EN&Country=US&model=PassatWagon&LeadSource=&DisplayGQ=yes&GQOrigin=VC&LoggedOn=)

any other input guys?  thanks!

Title: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: surgeon general on February 11, 2005, 12:02:11 AM
yup, i did.  yun yung SUV ng sis-in-law ko ngayon.  i really liked it.  bigat nga lang talaga touareg.  fuel economy halos kalapit na ng hummer. really an expensive SUV to maintain.   purchase price konti na lang diffence sa current choices ko kaso maintenance is just too steep.

@surgeon general,
whatever happens, dont buy a volkswagen, it has one of the lowest resell value,
you can try a search on reviews, the top three most unreliable cars all came from volkswagen as far as I know, the review came from a reputable survey.
the subaru has good performance, the crv and the element would be in the same level, they are ok , but do you want to be in an element rather than a highlander,
the toyota and the honda would have a higher resell value later on if you sell it
good luck and happy car hunting
nissan murano din ok para japorms

My wife drives a Passat sedan and i like it, never had major problems with it...but if you are planning to buy 1 this year, i think you are better off buying it next year since its gonna be replaced by an all-new model.....I think the Subaru is nice especially if you drive on snow....

Surgeon..The Subaru is superb in the snow. We have a lot here in Ontario and with a set of snow tire like a pirelli 240 snowsports, it is sure footed , predictable ang handling. Consumer magazines rated the forester better than honda crv in its all wheel drive design but i heard honda gets a better gas mileage. Just my 2 cents

@airshaq'
no its not the ford, it was the volkswagens, not the passats as far as i can remember.  you can ask a seasoned mechanic and they would all tell you its a very problematic car, and very expensive to maintain, expensive spare parts also,
theres actually a 1998 beetle being sold for 6 months now, only 6000 miles on it with more than $15K-20K of high end audio components and thousands more on aesthetic enhancements, nobody is buying it for $11k

Have the guys who installed your headers check the seals of your new exhaust. Most likely there's a leak. There should be no noticable change in your engine sound when you change your exhaust manifold.

masarap imaneho yung miata, nice cornering, maraming mods available sa internet
ask for the history of the car, kung meron bang recall, nagawa ba yung recall,  look in the net for recalls that should have been done to the car,

automatic ba?
kung manual, iba ang timpla nung makina niya,
high rev siya, bago magpalit ng gear, di katulad ng ordinary transmission, kahit mababa rev ok lang magpalit, pero siya tuned for high rev, tipong huwag kang mahiyang umapak sa gas, kasi it was meant to do that. enjoy the car

168 hp lang sya.  merong 250hp thats the XT version.  you'll know right away kung 250 kase may hood scoop na sya.   yung XT has the same boxer engine as the WRX.  astig istura under the hood.

i went for the 168 hp kase mas cost-efficient sya.  the XT requires premium unleaded everytime.  yung MPG din nya bumaba.  it would have been sweet though.  But, savings is savings. ;-)

Condition?  Hmm.... engine is still responsive..and fast, and doesn't break down...(courtesy of 2 years ago of a full engine overhaul)... the battery now doesn't fail ... (courtesy of a brand new 40 amp alternator nga ba yun, same time of overhaul).... the body...ah...the body.... 4 years ago, pina ayos namin yun, completely, well except for the left low beam which glass was broken, and we can't find a replacement in all Saulog around here....kaso may mga bitak na rin... and the tailgate was replaced with a solid steel end....ang bigat...@!@# ti kaya itaas na walang hahawak.....  the electricals are all rewired due to the overhaul also...but they @!#@! around w/ the fuses...at one point my left was dimmer than the right, akala ko lamp, palit and switch was no good... yun pala, inalambre lang  yung putol na fuse...talk about dirty harry...pero ayos na.   And I think the engine seal is leaking.....there's a good amount of sud underneath it every so often we get to check and see.  And we tried to fix the aircon a year and a half ago... half a year after that, it died...no fan, nothing...  and remains till this day.  And around a year ago the speedometer failed.  no replacement part too.  Anyway, we just start it up a times a month to keep it not failing.

Oh, yes, it's a 1983 Corolla DX Silver Edition Liftback.

Condition?  Hmm.... engine is still responsive..and fast, and doesn't break down...(courtesy of 2 years ago of a full engine overhaul)... the battery now doesn't fail ... (courtesy of a brand new 40 amp alternator nga ba yun, same time of overhaul).... the body...ah...the body.... 4 years ago, pina ayos namin yun, completely, well except for the left low beam which glass was broken, and we can't find a replacement in all Saulog around here....kaso may mga bitak na rin... and the tailgate was replaced with a solid steel end....ang bigat...@!@# ti kaya itaas na walang hahawak.....  the electricals are all rewired due to the overhaul also...but they @!#@! around w/ the fuses...at one point my left was dimmer than the right, akala ko lamp, palit and switch was no good... yun pala, inalambre lang  yung putol na fuse...talk about dirty harry...pero ayos na.   And I think the engine seal is leaking.....there's a good amount of sud underneath it every so often we get to check and see.  And we tried to fix the aircon a year and a half ago... half a year after that, it died...no fan, nothing...  and remains till this day.  And around a year ago the speedometer failed.  no replacement part too.  Anyway, we just start it up a times a month to keep it not failing.

Oh, yes, it's a 1983 Corolla DX Silver Edition Liftback.
maganda yang liftback,
amidst all the great looking cars/expensive cars here in new york where a civic or an altis is just a cheap economy car, I saw a liftback a week ago, I was surprised to see that car here,  and it was in a nice condition, japorms pa and bata pa yung nagmamaneho, it was like one in a million

Guys, if you were chosen to do something on a car's engine... would you,

a.) Have an engine swap(you don't know how it was worn and torn)
b.) Tweak the current engine(you have known for years)

The new engine would have to be a 1.6L 4AGE-U, from a 1.5L Toyota 5K engine.

The purpose here is to have better fuel mileage and better acceleration (on demand).
Title: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: slide on April 03, 2005, 11:56:17 PM
engine swap is recommended.  you need to spend a lot on your 5k to match a stock 4age.  problem is, medyo mahirap makahanap ng first gen 4age (yung rwd) na maayos pa yung condition.  you could try using a longblock from the ae92 (nicknamed "redtop") and a rwd celica/celica supra's transmission.  but that would involve a bit of mods.

5k engine... fx or van ba ito?  you need more torque to pull the heavy body.  you might want to consider a 3tgt (!), 7mgt(!!), 2jzgt(wtf!) or a 22R/18RG.

Yup. It seems a little bit odd, but I'm tweaking my van (Lite-ace).

Kung pwede lang 3SGTE, yun na ang choice ko. But i think i'll never find one here. But it seems that only the 1.6L engine could fit into the van's very little engine bay.

Anyways, is it possible to transform a silvertop 4AGE 20V into RWD use?

pwede yung silvertop/blacktop, pero mas mataas at mas makitid lalo yung powerband nun.  i'll say again:  you'll need more torque and a wider powerband for your van.  If you want to insist on an NA 4age, the one from an ae92 would be much better.  A 4agze would be a better choice kung gusto mo ng 1600 engine.  I would still recommend a 22R < 18RG < 3TGT.

if you want a 3sgte, get a W transmission from an old supra and fabricate a bellhousing or bellhousing adapter.  mod the oil pan and oil pickup dahil, originally, halos nakahiga yung makina.  you need to mod it to be able to pick up oil once you orient it to fit your RWD application.  

After all of this,  manalangin ka na swak yung shifter mo sa butas nung liteace.  Teka, floor shift ba yung lite ace?

and, as x said,  fuel economy will be worse, especially with a heavy right foot :D

I'm still thinking about the feasibility of having an engine swap. I might as well go with a diesel when gas prices reach P35+. I need torque naman eh.

Back on my 5K engine...
Anyways, I recently replaced my spark plugs and contact point (Denso). I already had it timed. But it seems that I lost some torque on the mid rpm range, somewhere on ~3500-4500 rpms. The shift points of this engine is very picky, so I have to drive it with some sort of style so I would get practical power. Nawala na yung kick/boost feeling when I rev it at that point. Any thoughts on this?
BTW, i also made repairs on the alternator, replaced high tension wires /w distributor cap.

And do you know someone who knows well about carburetors? I'm getting poor mileage with this one, 6km/l city driving. I don't want to resort to such fraudulent super turbo charger thing circulating around the market.
Title: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: slide on April 14, 2005, 05:22:11 PM
are the plugs in the same heat range?  nabalik ba ng maayos yung vacuum hoses para sa advancer? pa check mo ulit yung timing.  try to have it set to factory specs (should be in your manual).  you may also want to upgrade to electronic ignition (di lang yung igniter, pati yung distributor).

best pa rin ang casa para sa carbs.  or look for a shop with an a/f meter.  ginalaw na ba yung carb mo rati? prepare to spend on a rebuild kit and a few jets.

Post by: Tranced Moogle on April 14, 2005, 06:06:54 PM
Have you heard of that Khaos Super Turbo Charger? It principle is to have your engine have an air/fuel ratio of 15:1. But I don't believe it since you could achieve that ratio by just fine tuning the carb. More useless if the engine has a MAF sensor, or an EFI'ed one. The device's name itself is misleading since a turbo has a exhaust-propelled rotor mechanism to provide boost to intake. That super turbo contraption costing P6000+, purportedly invented by a fellow Filipino, is just a mere cylindrical tube.

Pina-timing ko sya sa servitek, they have this computer gadget that balances the engine timing. The last numbers I saw there that it had a 0.3 Vacuum @ ~800rpm.

Anyways, the one doing the hands-on work is my dad, i'm just the apprentice. I've learned a lot of things about the engine from him, but I've driven the car more, so I know how it ran the finest.

The last time we worked on the carb, my dad replaced some parts on it with some sort of repair kit. He adjusted some screws, perhaps he was tuning the idling speed of the engine. But whenever the car idles, I could smell the fuel coming out from the exhaust and it's more evident during cold starts. I don't know if I would bring it to casa, because the service there is very slow and very expensive in my experience.

We also looked at the matter of having electronic ignition so that there's no need of periodically replacing mechanical parts such as contact points. We found an electonic ignition system suited for the 5K engine but unfortunately the schematic diagram was missing. I googled the schematics for that certain part number but unfortunately there were none. Daikin yata yung brand.

But i'll still investigate on the matter. Baka kasi mainit lang ang panahon kaya mas inefficient ang makina. Although, I'm still leaning on the possibility that the power curve of the engine is slightly lower at the mid rpm range.

looks like you're running too rich. did you r dad replace the jets? also check the vacuum leading to your secondaries. before, when we were tuning 4k/5k engines, we'd play around with the vacuum so that both butterflies open at mid range. this made a lot of power but drank a lot of gas too :)

Si Pablo Planas nakaibento ng Khaos Super Turbo Charger, napanood ko siya kagabi sa re-aired na interview niya sa ANC. What I can say is that guy talks of pure BS.

What I remembered that he mentioned is that masama daw ang Catalytic Converter (does he know what kind of reaction is going inside a catalytic converter), 0% pollution daw kapag gumamit ng device nya (does he even know that a reaction consists of reactants and products?)... I even heard him na dapat daw gawing mandatory ng gobyerno ang paglalagay ng imbensyon nya sa lahat ng sasakyan. What an a-hole.

I had the chance to have a hands-on experience recently to change the carbs. I don't know why it was necessary to change the whole carb unit, but my dad insisted replacing so.

Anyways, the carb didn't came with factory settings because a needle was messed up (air control?). I also wondered why does the secondary "butterfly" doesn't open that wide even at wide open throttle (sobrang liit, parang konti lang yung difference). The old and the new shares the same case. Would widening the clearance of the secondary butterfly affect the performance of the engine when the throttle is fully pressed and how?

And saan merong shop na alam nyo na merong A/F meter?

Vehicle Maintenance Update:

I changed the exhaust manifold to a less restrictive one. The silencer was removed in favor of a much straight exhaust path, a resonator. It seems that it's rich in bass sound. Buo naman yung tunog, but it really sounds like a ricer. I can really sense that the low and mid-speed torque is significantly increased, although the sound seems bothersome.

Meron bang exhaust silencer na hindi restrictive? (I could get the performance while keeping the exhaust silent?)

And napansin ko na merong slight black smoke na lumalabas sa exhaust ko, what does that mean?

Thanks S. General.

I wanted to get one but for the price ($800 and up)  seems like its not worth it. I mean, there's other things that you can buy for that money with more praticality.  I know what you mean by looking at the PC when driving but that one I got has a voice module that gives you turn-by-turn prompts (just like the expensive ones).

I used to have the Microsoft Streets and Trips (GPS) but didn't have the voice prompts so i returned it and got this one.
The one beside the TT is my van (Caravan) - The Durango is OK but its too cramped inside and with the pump prices, i dont think i'd be happy to fill up that Durango (V8) twice a week. LOL.

Just a quick question, brought my car over to a shop and wanted to give it a new look. Ang est ng guy sa akin was 15K for the ffg work:

- strip to metal ng hood, to and trunk (bubbles daw kse)

- masilya

- overall paint job

Is 15K too much?

Also ano bang maganda at matibay na paint? RM brand daw kasi gamit nya?
I think for Php15K - thats pretty cheap. I had my car painted back in the Philippines about 8 or 9 years ago for Php25K and it was just a washover.

no fancy mod for my subaru yet.  pero we're getting a cargo basket para sa camping sa Maine.  

...and probably a bike hitch.

@S general:

Well, you know, got 1 kid and my wife...kaya syempre kelangan may pang family...my daughter can barely fit in the back sit...and since im 5'11...naka adjust all the way to the back yung sit ko...so, the TT is basically a 2-adult and 1 baby at the back....I used to drive the Caravan as my daily and the TT for weekends (my wife drove our Passat).....but sold the Passat, she now drives the Caravan for work and now, i drive the TT to work daily - my work is less than 5 miles from home so not bad for a daily drive.


I like your cargo basket - sarap pang long drive.....yeah, we need a bike hitch too kasi we got 2 mountain bikes and a small bike for my kid...

So how many miles you drive a year? Mukhang malayo ang biyahe mo araw araw ah.

cool TT airshaq !!! pag nagawi ako jan sa area mo eh pasakayin mo 'ko ha.

di ko alam meron palang car thread dito sa PPC. guys meron akong question regarding car speakers. meron akong 2 way 6 1/2" pioneers sa front and 3 way 6"x9" pioneers sa rear. meron akong nabasa somewhere na pwede mo daw tanggalin yung midrange/tweeter assembly from the speaker itself, and using extension speaker wires eh ilagay mo somewhere else (like the dash or the door panel) to produce a better soundfield (kinda like component speakers). wala kasi akong budget para bumili ng component speakers eh so better if i make use of what i got. meron na bang gumawa dito nun ? also meron bang built-n crossovers yung mga 2 way/3 way speakers ? usually eh caps lang nakikita ko, enough na ba yun o better pa rin meron kang crossover na hiwalay ?

10K a year isn't bad. My wife drives 20+ mile one way to work and put up around 350 miles a week (including other errands). I do about 6,000 a year with the TT (average about 100 miles a week) which isn't bad. She fills up regular gas with around $38 a week, mine's about $15 (with premium gas) a week so about $3K a year including the occasional long drives. Wheww, that sounds like a lot just for the freakin gas. LOL

About the Prius...was  talking to this guy when i was at Costco while having our tires changed. He drives a 1st gen Prius and he was so proud to tell me he got it the day he went to the dealership at MSRP. He said he gets 45mpg which is pretty good. When the 2nd gen Prius came out, he went to the same dealership but they have 4 months waiting list PLUS $12K on top of the MSRP. He freaked out and walked away.

So, if you plan on getting one just because you wanna save gas money but with the outrageous price - i'd personally just buy a regular car that i really want. I mean, even if you drive 15,000 miles a year for 5 years @ 20mpg and $2.50 per gallon:

15,000 miles x  5 years = 75,000 miles
75,000 miles  /  20 mpg = 3,750 gallons
3,750 gallons x $2.50/gallon = $9,375.00

That $12K you paid for premium will be enough gas for more than 5 years - hehehe...

Btw, how much mileage do you get in your car?

@Munkhee_

I believe it was RM. If you have extra cash to spare, go with Anzhal..but overall, the quality will depend on the painter. Even if you put the best paint there, if the painter doesn't know what he's doing - you will have a bad paint job.

@flashmanrpr:

Thanks man.

About your Q, most of the coaxial/3-way/4-way speakers available in the market have fixed midrange/midbass/tweeter assembly. You wont have any choice but install them @ factory locations. Some of the higher-end coaxials has a removable tweeter which can be set up as separates rather than coaxials.
Title: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: flashmanrpr on April 28, 2005, 02:59:38 AM
yup, yun nga plan kong gawin mamaya. with my ever-reliable dremel eh tatanggalin ko yung tweeter assembly from the coax mount tapos cguro gawa ako ng bracket para sa kanya para mai-mount ko somewhere higher in the door panels. yun nga lang wala akong alam na pwedeng pagbilhan ng speaker cone cover (nakakita ko nito sa raon noon) =( right now i'm looking for crossover schematics na pwede sa midbass/tweeter specs ko. mejo tipid mode kaya hindi pa kayang bumili ng magandang component speakers, buset na psp yan =)

kakalagay ko lang kasi ng sub sa likod ng hatchback (my first time) and it sounded ok, not really window shattering pero pag nasa intersection ako eh napapatingin yung mga nasa tabi ko tapos sabay iling ng ulo nila =)

another question, ano ba talaga yung 1st priority mod kung gusto mo lumakas HP/torque ng makina mo ? intake ba or exhaust ? sensya na, newbie pa ako pag dating dito. speaking of intake, ok na ba yung K&N lang or dapat talaga palitan yung factory intake to an aftermarket short ram or cold air ? tapos kung exhaust naman eh ano ba yung middle-budget na brand ? thx a lot mga bossing sa advice.

For power, most people would suggest intake/headers/exhaust...

If its for my ride, i would go with the intake first and K&N is the best one out there IMO. Most people would go with the short ram/cold air but I always wash my engine and I dont wanna cover engine parts every time to prevent water from sipping in. I use K&N filter using my stock air filter box (and that should be a good 5-10 hp)

Im not a headers fan so can't comment on that. As for the exhaust, I upgraded my previous car, an E36-328is, with a free-flow muff but it was too LOUD which i think was ricey. If i were to upgrade the exhaust again, i would go with something that is throaty but not too loud. Loud doesn't mean fast - it just attract unwanted attention.

But depending on your car, there are other ways to make it faster.
Here in the US, you can "chip" your car. Back in the days, "chipping" usually means physically installing a chip. Now, its just plugging in a serial device, download and reflash the chip to change how your car's computer control your engine (which is done by an authorized dealer). For my car, it takes about 20 mins to "chip" it, they're a bit expensive but the gain is pretty good (225hp to 265hp and 207 ft-lb of torque to 284 ft-lb) add the power gain from the K&N and a good muff - i could hit at least 275-285hp  and around 300 ft-lb of torque...thats gonna be a blast..

i finally dismantled my front speakers last night, actually madali lang sya kalasin, the coaxial assembly is just held by a screw from the back of the speakers (natatakpan lang ng label). so i removed the tweeters and after some soldering eh i finally mounted it higher on the door panel using 2 sided tape. temporary pa lang yun, i plan on fabricating a surface mount case/thingy para naman di pangit tingnan pero for now eh tape na lang muna. the difference in sound was amazing, i have to lower down the treble setting because it's too bright now. actually mejo nagka-idea ako na bumili na lang talaga ng component speakers na merong passive crossovers kasi i bet mas maganda yung tunog ng mga yun. anyway, yun lang muna, i'll try to post pix pag tapos na ako.

hehehe ... how i wish na 225HP yung sasakyan ko ngayon. it's a mere 106HP 2000 civic hatchback. so sana eh kahit K&N lang muna eh mag-up ako ng 5HP para even 110HP. actually tama ka airshaq, dito sa area namin ngayon eh may road noise restrictions na. bawal na daw yung mga rice cans, $100 yata yung multa. ano kayang magandang brand sa exhaust ? magnaflow ? dynomax ? ano ba yung kinabit mo nun airshaq ? yung di gaano malakas pero non-restrictive yung airflow. thx bro sa reply.

it was a fireball...yeah i know..di bagay...hehehhe..bimmer tapos fireball...i even bought two but when i got it delivered, ayaw ko na sya ikabit pero sabi ko, try ko isa, it was too loud...i spent $150 for the installation, ayoko na gumastos para pakabit yung stock so i kept it until i sold the car........binenta ko na lang sa kaibigan ko yung isang fireball...

medyo maingay din yung magnaflow...di ko pa narinig yung dynomax.....not familiar with a good exhaust for your car....parang nawalan na ko ng gana sa exhaust...btw...san location mo pre?

next mod for me is a short shifter...mga $180 plus shipping lang yung sakin....ill see if i could install it my self....for the price.....mababawasan ko ng 30% yung shift travel and that should shave off a few tenths from my time...so parang hp gain na rin yun kasi mas mabilis ang shifting ko....

regarding MPG of the prius vs. the cost premium,

VW Golf TDi gets 50mpg combined (sez PopSci). but i think you can't run a diesel car in the US...

closer to home (if you're really rich...) the BMW 530d gets anywhere from 15km/L to 27km/L (highway) which is pretty darn fantastic. And a diesel too! and it has *cough cough* i think 600N-m of torque. costs an arm, a leg, and both nuts though..

You can run a diesel car here in the States but cost of diesel fuel is actually more expensive than gas, harder to maintain plus you will have problems with emissions in a couple of years or so, and worse part is, there are probably about 1 to 100 ratio of stations that sells diesel fuel....I wouldn't buy a diesel and have to drive 10 to 20 miles one way just to fill up...and i almost forgot - the TDi's are a bit noisy compared to the GTi's - and the TDi with 100hp is underpowered compared to the 180 or 200hp of the GTi.

Why is it harder to maintain? This is odd, ang diesel basta't regular ang change oil at malinis ang air filter will give years of good service. Diesel engines compared to gas engines are more efficient and will go farther.

Its harder to maintain since there isn't much diesel shops that can service diesel engines (except the dealer). A mechanic CANNOT just fix anything if they are NOT certified to do a certain job. Why? Because they can be liable, they can be sued and may loose their license and certifications.

Harder to maintain because we have tough emission laws - any visible smoke from your car and you will be towed, fined or be asked to fix it (depending on the state you live in).

Harder to maintain because labor and parts are more expensive (supply and demand).

pero ano ba talaga yung comparison (if you're gonna talk about emissions) ng gasoline sa diesel ? ano ba yung mas environment friendly ?

dito sa area namin eh almost the same yung price ng regular unleaded gasoline at diesel, parang 2cents cheaper yung diesel. at saka mejo konti pa nga yung mga shops na nagme-maintain ng diesel engines (i live in the detroit area), mejo mahal din daw replacement parts, also di lahat ng gas station eh may diesel. so with that said eh sa prius muna ako, naka-roadtest na ako one time, kinda like the ride comfort of the camry with the handling of the corolla, ok sya. ang problema nga lang eh mejo bias ako at maka-honda =) sana maglabas na ang honda ng fuel-cell dito sa amin =)

They may have comparative mileage but the price difference between the two isn't.  You can get the TDI for about $15K and the Prius at $27K...and since the Prius is selling like hotcakes, you have several months waiting list plus dealers are putting $,$$$ on top of the MSRP, so that price can go up in the 30's.

With that price difference, you can buy 2 TDi's for the price of a Prius.

not familiar with their codes..but if its an STi @ Php 2.3M - i would say, its a bargain...STi's sell for about $35K here...add taxes, freight and everything papunta dyan, mura na yun.

Well if you're showing visible smoke it just means hindi mo inaalagang mabuti yung makina. Like I said kalaban ng diesel yung maruming/baradong airfilter at hindi regular na change oil.

I think this is more of a perception and attitude problem already. Europe has much tougher environmental laws and they promote diesel use (last I heard they will stick with the Kyoto Protocol, unlike the US). Efficiency ratings for diesel reach almost 40% while a comparable gas engine barely reaches 30%. More mileage, more work done.

BTW when Rudolf Diesel created his engine he designed it to run on peanut oil, a renewable and organic fuel.

Ahh... so that's why it's so expensive at that price point. The base price for an 2005 Impreza WRX in the US is P1.6M (converted to peso) without the taxes. But just like airshaq said, the 22B STi version would go as much as P2.2M without taxes.

Europe has much tougher environmental laws and they promote diesel use (last I heard they will stick with the Kyoto Protocol, unlike the US). Efficiency ratings for diesel reach almost 40% while a comparable gas engine barely reaches 30%. More mileage, more work done.

BTW when Rudolf Diesel created his engine he designed it to run on peanut oil, a renewable and organic fuel.
That's my point - more maintenance (although not complicated) means more money out of the drain.

And people here are willing to spend more money on gas than for maintenance. Not to mention, a TDi is only 100hp (soooo low by US standards). We have freeways here with no filling stations - last thing you would wanna worry about is where you gonna get diesel fuel for your car.

pero ano ba talaga yung comparison (if you're gonna talk about emissions) ng gasoline sa diesel ? ano ba yung mas environment friendly ?

dito sa area namin eh almost the same yung price ng regular unleaded gasoline at diesel, parang 2cents cheaper yung diesel. at saka mejo konti pa nga yung mga shops na nagme-maintain ng diesel engines (i live in the detroit area), mejo mahal din daw replacement parts, also di lahat ng gas station eh may diesel. so with that said eh sa prius muna ako, naka-roadtest na ako one time, kinda like the ride comfort of the camry with the handling of the corolla, ok sya. ang problema nga lang eh mejo bias ako at maka-honda =) sana maglabas na ang honda ng fuel-cell dito sa amin =)
Diesel here is a bit more expensive than cheap gas (87 octane) - although i put premium in my car just because thats what the recommended fuel.

Yeah, the Prius seems like a good one. I was reading about the technology of the Prius. On stop-and-go traffic below 15 mph, the battery will operate 100% of the time. If you're on red light or at idle, both engines (battery and motor) shuts off. So, no battery or gas is consumed. This is very beneficial if you are driving @ crawling traffic every day.

177 foot-pounds. That's tremendously high for a mere 1.9L engine.

As for the BMW 530d, apparently it's 500N-m, not 600.  :) That's 368 foot-pounds. And it gets 41mpg highway, which is pretty darn decent. But it's supposed to be "highly unavailable" in the US, although I've seen several already here in Manila (which is saying something considering its stratospheric price).

BTW diesel engines are inherently cleaner than gas engines. Their NOx, CO, and N2 emissions are across the board lower than gasoline engines. But... they produce lots of soot. This is what causes their poor perception in the US... the soot is so visible, but it's just carbon dust. A gas engine produces no ugly exhaust, but a lot of invisible poisonous gases.

In the US... horsepower is all that matters. They also make their torque peak at low rpm that's why their cars love to wheelspin.

Torque being made available in low rpms is good for heavy vehicles and city driving. The modern diesel engine is designed for that. Just don't expect high top speeds. But getting from 60-100kph (usual highway acceleration) is fast enough.

If you want to save your money from fuel costs and the environment by getting a diesel, while still being able to get faster speeds, get a Jaguar, Volkswagen, Audi or something.

i think BMW and Audi make the most desirable diesels out there. the A8L has been called (by the Top Gear guy) "the most civilized way to get from London to Prague." of course it's Audi's flagship so.....

@S General:

Yeah, ganon talaga yung gas consumption. After the break-in period, you should notice better fuel economy. BTW, I read from another forum na on sale ngayon ang mga Subarus and Saabs - sayang, should've waited kasi meron silang rebate - IIRC, its $5500 yata...

About sa octane rating - US use a different method. I believe 91 octane here in the US is equal to 97 octane in the Phils. I use 93 octane so im assuming thats equal to 100 octane in the Phils.

We have a highway here called Freeway and Interstate Highways. On these roads, there's no traffic lights and most people drive on these roads every day. Posted speed is only 65-70mph (some states have higher speed limit) but nobody drives at the limit. It is basically "legal" to drive about 10mph on top of the limit but with the wide roads (some are 10 lanes EACH way), you can basically go 20+mph faster than the flow of traffic. So if you are driving 80, 90mph - you still NEED the power to pass (overtake) - we're talking just NORMAL traffic speed here. Im not talking about road racing yet.

That explains why Americans need gasoline engines because they have almost the same torque and HP numbers - which we both need for whatever road we're driving.

Americans may be wary of torque vs. horsepower... but most of them don't mind the gas guzzling situation of their cars. The only solution is that the American car manufacturers need to make fuel efficient vehicles. The only common car I could think of as an efficient one while having decent performance coming from the Americans is the Ford Focus.

Fortunately, they recently realized that there's a price to pay for having too much power. That's why they're going gagas about cheap Japanese hybrid cars (actually, they're not cheap, and they're substantially underpowered).

You're prolly looking at people who drive V8 trucks and SUVs. Most (take note, i said most) people who buy and drive these vehicles buy them for a purpose. Unlike people in the PHils who buy F150s to look good....people here buy trucks and SUVs as utility vehicles....most of these you see driving everyday use them for their work....The ones you see on TV are for show and you rarely see those driving around with their show vehicles.....there are 17million vehicles sold in the US a year (new cars only) and about 12 million used vehicles sold annually.....I would say - 85-90% of these cars are sold as "work vehicles" ...

cars used for commuting - they buy small cars (cheap and reliable)...people who buy vans are people who got small kids....and people who buy trucks are people in the manufacturing, engineering, construction or service-oriented job.....and always see them something carrying a heavy load....

they dont buy these to put 20" wheels (those are for show cars and for movies).....

the ones you see on "pimp my ride" or those kinda shows are less than 1% of the car populace. So, you may think American drives these V8s to waste gas - but no, i think Pinoys in the Philippines who drives these are the one who are wasting gas.

There must be a reason why there is a sudden sharp drop of SUV sales in the US and why the Toyota Prius and other fuel efficient vehicle models sell like hotcakes. Is it because it's well endorsed by some celebrities and environmentalists?

I doubt if they would use the Prius for hauling their "utility".

I think this one is a plausible explanation why Americans love these gas-guzzlers:

From the Wikipedia entry for the H2 (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hummer_H2):

For USA taxpayers with substantial income other than salaries (e.g. private practice income such as medical practitioners, attorneys, and real estate agents or other independent professionals) the purchase of this vehicle can offer substantial tax savings. These savings were originally intended to encourage the purchase of large vehicles by working trades such as carpenters and masons and to ensure this minimum weight limitations for qualifying vehicles were imposed. (It was not expected that luxury personal transportation vehicles would qualify for these incentives.) These tax incentives were substantially enhanced by legislation promoted by the administration of George W. Bush. For qualifying taxpayers the incentives can reduce the purchase price by thirty to forty thousand dollars.

airshaq is right.. actually trucks outsell cars by a huge margin in the US because of the tax breaks you get if you declare it as a business expense. i think the biggest-selling vehicle in the US is not the accord or camry.. but the F150.

about the mazda3 vs civic.. well the mazda3 is one nice-looking car. and i'm a mazda fan myself. the huge problem is that the mazda engine is (relatively) stone-age. in today's world of 27km/L (honda city CVT) the 1.6L engine on the 3 with only sequential valve timing is behind the times.. and the 2.0L engine on the 3 with only variable induction is positively stone-age. that 2.0L engine with VICS is very similar to the engine in the Lynx RS (the FS-DE) which is exactly the same engine in the mazda 626.

so... no variable lift, variable valve timing in the 1.6L...

sigh the mazda3 looks fantastic! but the engine, the engine...

if i were to buy a new car today it'd be a 1.3L vios. toyota's *suzuki-designed* VVT-i is quite impressive. i've heard people say the 2.4L VVT-iL engine in the camry is as fuel-efficient as an old-generation 1.6L engine like the one in *gasp* the mazda3!!!

To conserving fuel on trips needs a refined driving style. But thanks to new engines with variable cam timing and lift, city and highway driving is much more efficient due to the power being made availabe at the right rpm ranges.

I'm still learning the proper way when to shift on an old '96 Liteace. It has a close-ratio transmission, so shifting isn't like the ones as on other not-so-underpowered cars. Revving it low rpms at the highest gear as soon as possible seems to be more fuel consuming and harder for the engine.

I agree with you Tranced Moogle... driving style is a factor on conserving fuel... my brother could make our Honda Civic RS (EK) 1.6 A/T go as high as 12km/li.. but he could also make it 5km/li... my dad could do it at 13km/li...

that 5km/li, are mostly forcing the car to go as high as 7k rpm, then shift...

Do you know any body/paint shops that offer Paintless Dent Removal? Is it cheaper than having a wash-over repaint (price per area repaired ratio)?

One paintshop game me a price of P35000 for body repairs + to-the-metal paint job + gloss finish on a '96 Toyota Lite-ace. I have no idea how much a Paintless Dent Removal process costs. The dent on the fender is an eyesore, and some of the temporary paint-ons are not consistent with the other painted areas. We have no plans of changing color or spending much on the looks, because we might dispatch it by next year so we like to have it repaired the cheapest way.

Should I have it all repainted or just repair the major eyesore on the fender?

tranced,

richard florentino at buendia auto center comes very well recommended regarding PDR. 0919 566 4666.

he's at buendia auto center (the used car lot along buendia, although the entrance is along jupiter street).

i put a HUGE dent in my passenger side door (about 4" deep and covering an area of about 1 foot by 1 foot). this cost 3500 to fix. it looks as good as new.

just one cautionary tale (although i believe from the feedback i've read that my experience is very much the exception). after i got my car back, a lot of functionality had disappeared (no dome light, no stereo, no door chime...) anyway he said that he had only mucked around with the door itself and denied any wrongdoing. turned out the fuse for those features had blown, maybe he shorted some wires for the power window or something? i was a bit miffed that the car came back with less functionality than when i left it with him, but a simple fuse replacement fixed that. HOWEVER if it had been a more severe problem, i've be EXTREMELY pissed...

if you choose to have him do the work, be at buendia auto center EARLY (8-10 a.m.) and prepare to have the car left there till 4 p.m. or thereabouts.

is the fortuner a simplified version of 4runner?

or a bigger version of Rav4?

 
Title: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: [X] on May 24, 2005, 03:34:03 PM
you could actually say that the fortuner is the successor to the 4runner, because like the latter, the fortuner is based on a toyota truck chassis (in this case, the IMV platform which it shares with the hi-lux and the innova, which is a ladder frame type chassis) main difference being that it rides on coild-springs all sides whereas the the other 2 ride on front coils/rear leaf springs)

the rav4 on the other hand is based on a passenger car platform (the corolla) similar to how the CRV is based off the civic platform. with the introduction of the fortuner, the rav4 is going to be phased out soon.
Title: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: surgeon general on May 24, 2005, 09:08:32 PM
yeah, siguro in terms of chassis design.  pero i dont think "successor" is the right word.  4runner's power and capability are well beyond a fortuner.  you can go literally anywhere with a 4runner(standard VSC, DAC, HAC).  fortuner pang urban lifestyle lang siguro.

siguro nga, with fortuner's arrival, rav4 might be phased out in SE asia.  for one thing its (fortuner) an IMV.

I haven't test driven this fortuner yet, but I saw there's a stick for the differential gear (new 4x4s have push button on-the-fly range settings). meron syang low range, and it's full time awd. Pero i'm not sure kung efficient nga sya sa off roading. It's really big when you look at it. Pero kapag sumakay kana, parang lumiit na tingin mo sa fortuner.

We looked at the fortuner the first day it hit the showrooms. We we're willing to trade-in the RAV4 for this, but the very long queue and the A/T tranny set us back. Tsaka nung nalaman namin na ipha-phase out na yung rav, wag na lang siguro.

Palalagyan ko na lang siguro tsikot ko ng hood scoop parang yung '04 RAV4 Euro (o kaya yung parang dun sa '05 impreza) version para naman ma-update yung style kahit papaano.

Yep, we did, we tried it on a 97 Suzuki Vitara and at first engine response and fuel economy was good (I bet because of the tune-up). Of course having shelled out around 6K you tell yourself "wow this is really working" but sadly after a few weeks(2 to be exact) the engine began to low idle and lose power. A trip to the installer for some adjustments fixed the problem temporarily but in the end we decided it was too much of a hassle to go to the shop every 2 weeks just to have the damned thing recalibrated. So now we ended up with a 6000Peso piece of display ornament.

nde ako masyadong solve sa khoas device na to. for one thing, especially on EFI cars, the air/fuel ration is adjusted automatically by the ECU. so adding this device only adds to the variables in the mix.

and from what I read, someone doing testing/investigation on this device opened it up and saw a "scotch-brite" like material. i wonder how it helps. does it uh.. scrub the air of excess air or fuel?

in general, automakers dismiss these types of devices as not living up to their claims.

imho, the best way to get the best possible performance from your car is to have it regularly serviced. things like regular oil/fluid change, engine tune-up, making sure your wheels are aligned/ properly inflated will also provide noticeable fuel economy. of course everything is still dependent on that lead foot of yours :D

car and driver says, basic requirements for serious off-roading are: available low and high AWD ranges, ground clearance and driver skill.

one of the most capable off-roader is the jeep grand cherokee.  it has a ground clearance of 8.0.  ford explorer has 8.5 while VW touareg has a towering 11.8 (yum!).  my subaru outback has 8.4  B-) kaya malakas loob ko for some off-roading.  mud, snow, sand no problemo.  pero di ko na kaya hills at streams.  symmetrical AWD can only do so much :-(  :-P

example.. yung LANDCRUISER FJ40

basic lift kit (to increase ground clearance)
- (ex. 4 inch) lift leaf springs (mulye)
- shackles (this also adds lift)
- longer shock absorbers..
- bump stops (para di mag bottom off ang shocks)
- poly urethane bushings... (replace yung rubber)

kasi mataas na ang ground clearance mo.. magpapalit ka ng

- wider tires (kailangan kse iba na ang center of gravity ng vehicle, wider par di mag rollover. )

kse malaki na gulong.. you need to

- re gear (para kaya ng makina mo ang gulong.)

additional..

- reverse shackle.. (sa front.. for better control)
- change to saginaw steering..  (better handling kse yung old medyo hindi accurate..)

dami pa...

- roll bars
- winch
- lockers (if you're really serious)
- limit slip diff..
- longer brake lines
- snorkels
- etc..
 dami pa.. depende sa yo.. dami  kasi gadgets..

feel free to ask baka may masagot ako..  brother ko kasi may off road shop dito sa davao.

BWAHAHAH!!!! teh classic corolla vs civic question!

mas malakas ang b16, even when you compare it with the 20v 4age.  medyo unfair lang yung comparison dahil sadyang luma na yung 4age.  a more ideal comparison would be between the b18 and 2zz-ge

modding-wise, when comparing chassis that can accomodate those engines (ek9 vs ae92, for example)  it's easier to get more power on the corolla than the civic.  drop in a 4agze with a supercharger pulley mod on the ae92 at you can easily whip the more expensive ek9.  at di hamak na mas mura at mas malakas yun than swapping a b18 motor on the ek9.

hmmm... depends on what type of eek eek sound. if its squeek squeek like rubber squeaking, it's probly the fanbelt. you can check if the belt, tighten the pulleys or spray some belt traction compound. if its more of a metal sqeak sound, then have the compressor and pulley bearings checked too. extended periods of non use will cause the lubricants on the bearings to settle, so you get some metal to metal contact. use spray or pen oil to lube it up. with more regular use, it should hopefully go away.

Question lang po.

Kailangan ko pa bang ipa-wheel align and balance ang sasakyan after magpalit ng bagong gulong (4pcs) if pina-align and balance ko na sya less than a month ago?

Why not? Isn't there supposed to be a 3 or 6 month warranty, anyway? At least ganun sa Zafra nung nagpa-align ako dati.

libre naman usually ang wheel balancing kapag bumili ka ng mga gulong so why not avail of it? sa alignment naman, hindi naman kailangan kung less than a month pa lang pala yung last one.

di na daw kailangan i-balance sabi ng pinagbilhan ko. kasi daw pinalitan yung apat.

Mas concern ako sa wheel alignment baka kasi mapudpod sa side yung gulong, sayang naman :)

If that is the case then okay na ako :)

Post by: lahar on June 16, 2005, 09:48:55 PM
Ang wheel balancing ginagawa dahil hindi naman pantay ang bigat ng bawat gulong all-throughout. kaya nilalagyan ng lead-weights (balancers) on different parts of the rims para magpantay ang bigat niya, para maiwasan yung wiggle ng mga bawat gulong habang tumatakbo. Ipa-balance mo na at libre naman yun, basta dun mo binili sa kanila yung gulong.

ipa-balance and allign mo na since afaik free naman yan when you buy new tires/rims.  wala naman mawawala eh.  nung nagpalit ako ng tires & rims dati automatically binalance and allign na nung binilhan ko kahit indi ko sinasabi.

this reminds me ... san ba mura magpabalance, camber and allign sa qc area?  due na ko for this things eh.

Oo nga, dahil hindi pantay ang bigat, mag-wiwiggle or "otso-otso" ang mga gulong pag umikot.

Geode,

Heres a tip: tol dalhin mo sa Servitek, libre ang check-up and estimate. baka hindi naman kailangan. kung kailangan naman, most likely medyo pricey sa kanila so make an excuse para makaalis ka and lipat ka somewhere na mas mura (kahit saan na big wheel shops may alignment etc. services na mas mura naman di hamak kesa sa Servitek).

You will need to balance your tires if:

1. they are new
2. you had a flat tire repaired
3. they were stored in standing position for a long time
4. you changed your rims
5. you rubbed your rims or tires
6. whenever you hear a wheel vibration at cruising speeds

I've inquired at Rajo's along Regalado Ave. pero medyo pricey ang qoute at 26k, though in fairness magaganda yung mga gawa nila. They said they were gonna use K92 paint and Meguiar detail.

unbalanced tires can also cause uneven tire wear, although on a lesser degree than mis-aligned wheels, during high speed driving... unbalanced tires wiggle and wobble at high speed causing uneven traction and wear...

on another note, "brand new" tires should be balanced and thus require NO counter weights... if your wheels require counter weights with brand new tires, better check the rim for deformity...

nga pala.. naghanap ako ng brembo rotors for my car kasi akala ko warped na yung isang rear rotor disc ko dahil sa sticky handbrake. it's around $300 yata for a pair of rotors, plus the pads.

Tranced, what car? 2000 lang pala ang replacement rear rotor disc ng mazda 626 (new) sa banawe. i guess mas mahal yung front disc kasi ventilated, but probably not a lot more. you're telling me 18k for 2 rotor discs lang yun? baka kasama yung brake caliper; mahal kasi yun (9000 yung para sa 626, each).
Title: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: Tranced Moogle on August 29, 2005, 07:56:19 PM
RAV4 po yung sasakyan. Yep, Toyota quoted me PhP18k++ for a pair of ventilated disc rotors. Brake pads from them cost PhP5000++. So thats around  P24000.

I do want to compromise a little by just resurfacing the disc rotors instead of replacing them as Toyota suggested. But I want to put high-quality brake pads just to compensate.

There's nothing wrong with getting your discs refaced, unless warped na talaga or may lamat. Millimeters lang naman ang shaving nila.

Better to get Bendix pads, cheap and way better than OEMs.

resurfacing is not a bad thing.
it's not a compromise unless the rotor is really too thin already. the service manual will tell you how thin the disc can get before it has to be thrown away.

i am pretty sure unless the disc is warped, it can be resurfaced at least TWICE. so have 'em resurfaced in Banawe and have the brake pads replaced with Bendix pads. i would recommend Sprint Auto Supply in New Banawe. Bendix is a well-known brand.

lahar, those darkened headlights if you mean the chrome part being darkened came from the TypeR civic (it is dark chrome). Like the picture above.

Those who put some kind of fabric on the tailights are nuts. Doesn't look good and a safety hazard as well.

Diamond Motors Mitsu Quezon Ave. is teh Suck

here are my list of rants.

1. When my car sufferred a major damage from a accident when it was only 3 days old , mitsu didnt do a good job. water was leaking inside the car , yes inside the car. pathetic isnt it? they even forgot to install the rear defogger, didnt bother installing the mitsu and lancer sign at the back of my car (which I only now was able to find spare parts, to my own "search" capabilites.)

2. When sometimes I want something replaced like the the damaged license plate holder  at the front of the car (specially designed for lancer 2k1) what did they do? they used electric tape. sheesh. ugly. basically Im willing to pay for replacement but they can be too lazy to do it for me.

3. Some rep's wont call you if your car is already ready after its checkup or whatever.

4. As a find out now, My address and contact numbers where all wrong on their computer database. wtf?

5. Some parts can a bit hard to comeby, I had to go to diff. mitsu locations in order to find specific parts, and I was suprised that for example in mitsu. novaliches these guys even helped me get a part from another branch, So I dunno. service is not their forte.

6. And now, I had the floater on my gas tank replaced just last week because I noticed sudden fluctuations on the gas meter/fuel meter, now its even worse. Im going back at diamond probably on monday to complain. this sucks. im normally a calm guy who smiles over this things but damn, this is the last straw.

does anyone have any recommendations on other mitsu branches?

also these are some complaints that I have over my car which I know are not entirely the fault of diamond which i think is by design.

1. Steering , I probably need to check the camber or something but our honda civic 98 doesnt have any problems , so build quality maybe an issue.

2. Antenna, mine broke, and had to replace it for 16K, ouch. build quality again?

Dont get me wrong, I love my lancer 2k1. Im just venting my frustration over bad service.

japol,

so bumigay na rin pala power antenna mo... sa akin minsan gumagana, minsan ayaw. tanong ko kung magkano bago... 7k+ daw.  it just wears down over time.  am gonna change to an internal antenna na lang next time and have that power antenna removed.

so far, ok naman ako sa diamond motors sa marcos HW.

Isouljah and Geode,

Nope, I know of smoked lenses like those that came standard on the Galant VRs headlights. Pero yeah I also find those smoked taillights annoying, halos hindi na makita kung nagpe-preno. Ang sinasabi ko yung may fabric. Another instance is the removal of one headlight to allow installation of a CAI/RAI (cold-air intake/ram-air intake). Nuts, may nadaanan ako 2 nights ago nung kalakasan ng ulan, yun ang ginawa, Civic isa lang headlight, ayun binangga yung MMDA barrier sa Commonwealth.

got the side skirts around 2 years ago sa casa (around 3.6k each) but i think meron nyan sa labas.  yan yung OEM side skirt na kasama nung last edition ng car natin.  if you're referring to the sparcos, they're still with me - i just took them out and put on the enkeis instead - for autocross and daily-driving purposes.

i assume generic lang naman yung power antenna. dun sa car ko 2000 surplus banawe. wala namang problema so far (2 years) but i barely use the radio kaya di na-e-exercise gaano.. pero baka kayang ayusin muna, 400 palitan yung plastic rack kasi nabubungi yung teeth. in my case mahina na yung motor kaya palit lahat.

FYI you can buy a bosch-branded generic power antenna at this auto shop in megamall for 3000-ish lang.

@bravoexo

ingat sa pagbu-buff..   choose the lowest speed first and test it on an old car (hehehe)  before applying it on your favorite car. kasi naluluto rin ang paint sa friction ng pagbu-buff.

advice lang po.. kung may experience po kayo eh.. ok naman.. pagpatuloy po nyo :)

you'll need good contacts but this can be done.

you surrender the old plate and get issued a new one.

another option is to get one of them uber expensive vanity plates

Guys, I'm using a 2003 Lancer MX CVT and I recently changed the headlights,park lights, and fog lights to HID. Kaso bumigay ung fuse ng fog lights (15 Amps), and nirecommend ng mechanic na gawin ko daw 20 Amps. Ok naman til' 2 days after bumigay din!

Pano po kaya nito? Ok lang kayang palitan ko pa ng mas mataas (25 Amps)? O baka pumutok na ung main fuse ko?

Edit: Sorry, hindi po pala ginawang HID yung park lights, ginawa lang blue-colored. Single contact lang yun kaya wala HID na ganun. Sorry.

you can increase the fuse amperage until it doesnt burn out anymore. but then you'll have to worry about the wiring harness burning up. that's gonna be even more trouble. what's the wattage of your fog lamps?
Title: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: jojitb on February 08, 2006, 09:28:16 AM
lakas naman sa kuryente nang fog lamp mo.   If your stock fuse is 10A and it fails when used with your new lamps, better ask an electrician to fabricate a new wiring harness with beefier cables.  

Just replacing the fuse will end up with you on the sidewalk calling up the fireman.

Mga sir pinalagyan ko naman po ng relay so mababa risk na may madali na ibang pyesa.

Wattage po ng fog lamps ko is 100 Watts. I tried putting in 25 Amps this morning and it just lighted for a split second and then it dies again. Ba't kaya? Any recommendation to how many amps the fuse I'd put would be needed? 1 pair of fog lamps= 200Watts. Dont know the necessary amps nga lang.

its better to have an electrician take a look so he could measure the juice requirements of your fog lamps. or you could do it yourself if you are inclined to. you'll need an ammeter or a tester to see the current draw when you turn on your fog lamps. it would be nice to check for shorts as well.

when I used fog lamps before, i only needed 15A fuses for a pair of 100w lamps, wired with its own relay using 12 gauge wiring. and i dont normally blow a fuse like whats happening to you. it had its own circuit btw, not tapped to the existing wiring harness.

Biodiesel is great in terms of minimizing agricultural waste, but useless as a true alternative for crude oil. Primarily, the amount of land that would need to be converted into farmyard to produce significant amounts of biodiesel is enormous. This alone means that we can never produce enough biodiesel to power the world's transport.

If you just want exhaust fumes that smell like fries on the other hand...  :boxing:

A better alternative might be alcohol fuels. Cows produce methane in spades! Think ~300 liters per cow, per day. Yep, that's a lot of fuel going to waste, and since methane is a stronger greenhouse gas than CO2, you might consider a cow as producing more pollution than that big Escalladition SUV that greenpeaceniks love to hate. The solution? Barns that collect methane from belching cows! Either that or we can just slaughter them all and live on chicken.  :evil:

Mga sir, update lang po.

Well, I guess I solved my problem that I posted here before. Turns out that the reason why my fuse keeps busting is because the terminal of my right fog lamps hits a metal part of its housing, thus the short.

Got it resolved by covering both terminals (left and right) with electric tape.

Pics:

(http://img133.imageshack.us/img133/8592/61be00032xe.jpg)

Unfortunately though, I just visited tsikot.com a while ago (for the first time) and found my post here as unfortunately misleading. The lights placed on my lamps aren't HID. If I'm correct, they're just Super Whites Halogen bulbs, which I just identified as the primary reason to why they're cheap. I guess I got caught by some good marketing staffs.

But luckily, I don't experience the same issues posted at tsikot. Vision is actually (not an illusion like how its called, I proved this one together with my brother and friends) better. Vision though on heavy rains on asphalt really ain't the top-class though, but it's all good.

But still, wished I knew the site tsikot a little earlier before I fell prey to marketing scams. Sigh... pero oks na 'to. Nangyari na eh?

Un lang, salamat po sa lahat ng suggestions! :P

Edit: Inayos ko lang po ung mga links ng pics. tnx po.

"real" HID's are arc discharge lighting. nasa 25000 ang "real" HID. may ballast yun etc.

but HID's are illegal because they're too bright and you can't dim-dip them (hindi sila instant-on like halogens).

so cars which come with HID as stock have a little motor to dim-dip the HID (they actually point the HID beam downward pag low beam, to save the HID lamp from too many on off cycles).

Post by: batang_raon14 on February 13, 2006, 12:52:12 AM
@orly_andico

read lots of articles after reading the forums over at tsikot. And I've read na illegal nga on European countries. But how bout here sa pinas?

And I've seen sample pics too of HID's with 4100K and they are bright and clear and doesn't hurt the approaching motorist's eyes provided that it's well placed on your car (at an angle that the lights won't reach any higher than the front bumper of the approching vehicle). Dami technical terms eh. Di ko na matandaan sa haba ng nabasa ko ngaun lang.

guys, just bought a second hand mazda 1997gli from my cousin (second owner)... just got a couple of questions:

how much ba selling price ng mazda 1997 gli (kung mura bili ko, eh di masaya, kung mahal eh di paktay)? ok pa ba ganito model or sakit lang sa ulo? what i really wanted is a ~90 honda hatchback/ or a hyundai getz. gusto ko sana cute car hehehe.

pwede ba ma-tamper digital odometer? ~78k mileage on a 9yr old car sounds fishy hehehe. from the physical looks of the car, mukhang tama odo kaso naalanganin pa rin ako.

how much alarm (+keyless entry)? ok na ba yung mga el-cheapo type? would it be effective/sensitive enough para mag-alarm just in case meron magbutinting tulad ng mga carnappers? or useless lang?

any tips para maiwasan macarnap?
-im thinking having an additional hidden manual switch for the starter. will this work?
bihira naman carnap cases dito sa place ko (dagupan city), pero buti na nagiingat.

thanks sa mga magrereply  :-)

patay ata ako dito: around Php1.8k fulltank, nakalimutan ko kung ilan liters, around 550kms palang (dagupan - pasay - dagupan + ikot ikot dito sa dagups) nasa empty na guhit  :-o

how much ba gas ngayon? i assume mas mahal ng approx P1 dito sa place ko.

edit: assuming 38php/liter, then im around 11-12km/l. ok na ba ganito consumption?
Mukhang ok naman for a Mazda 323.

Post by: flashmanrpr on May 08, 2006, 10:55:26 PM
ano ba mpg ng rav4 at forrester ? and ano ba yung primary purpose ng car ng wife mo ? ngayon mejo taas ng gas dito sa us so a lot of people i know are planning on trading in their suv's for a compact car. if you're not really doing a lot of offroading and hauling stuff eh mejo overkill yung suv. when i bought our 04 crv eh i thought we'll get a much bigger space than our civic. ngayon with a growing kid aboard eh di na rin enough yung space sa crv, malaki nga yung cargo space pero yung space sa seating area eh parang car lang din. now i'm also planning to trade in our crv for a minivan and our old civic for a honda fit or a toyota yaris to compensate for gas. just my two cents.

pero between the rav4 and the forrester eh i think i would go for the rav4, mas sporty looking.

hey thanks for the replies guys!

@client
nasa US na ako.  pero tama ka.  practical ang toyota sa pinas coz of service and parts.

@flashmanrpr & piracy4ever
pareho lang sila ng mpg, 23/28.  both 4 cylinders.  for more power, rav4 has 6 cylinders available and the forester has a turbo version.

i also wanted gas-efficient car for my wife pero i want it to be big enough to haul things she need while im away like groceries, home depot trips, etc..  

@dean
hehe, then get the V6 and smoke 'em


@bastich
i wish! hehehe!  i was actually hoping getting her some nice sedans like audi or even a bimmer.  pero medyo sabay sabay gastos ko ngayon at medyo mahal mga bagong AWD versions nila so practical approach muna.  i have to stick with AWD cars alam mo naman blizzard conditions ng east coast.  sa susunod na mga luxury pag tapos na ako ng residency at nakabili na ng magandang bahay.



anyway, we chose and bought the forester kanina.  post more about it later.

(http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y52/tochiendy/e77a6332.jpg)
(http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y52/tochiendy/ebeb4bc4.jpg)
ok, how do i do this....

lets try, power(base): rav 4 has a 2.4 liter 4 cylinder engine producing 166hp.  the forester upped the ante with 2.5 flat 4 giving out 173 hp.  same fuel efficiency.

exterior:  mix bag.  rav 4 has that usual design except bigger...and a bigger rear door too....that opens to the side.  a feature we didn't really like.  a disadvantage when you have to do parallel parking, tight space and have to load/unload stuff.  
the forester redesigned for 2006 and it was effective.  we loved the detail put into it including that chromed exhaust tip.  hehe, and that LL bean badge.  it screams outdoors.

interior: i was hoping to be impressed with the rav4.  photos looked stylish and of high quality.  closer look and feel reveals plastics.  i feel it will look stylish in the first year then gets old after.  faux brushed aluminum.
forester's interior was simple yet elegant.  plastics are present but mixed well with leather.  the MOMO wood and leather steering wheel added to the elegance.   the panoramic moonroof was also hard to resist.  

safety:  both performed well based on IIHS.  although rav4 isn't complete yet.  but with curtain airbags im sure it will do well.  although those will inflate when the car senses a roll over is about to happen. not during a side impact.

i also felt comfortable with subaru's AWD system.  its full time, symmetrical.  it doesn't have to wait for a slip to engage it.  compared to RAV4's on demand.  a FWD that does AWD when the front wheels slip.  you can enage a lock but it will disengage automatically above 25 mph.  toyota compensates by adding traction control and stability control.  

test drive:  the forester was better in terms of handling.  it was quick agile.  tama nga sabi nila, its like driving a car.  a well-fed one.  it was just fun to drive.  visibility was also better for the forester coz of larger windows.  seat positioning was better on RAV4 coz of telescoping steering wheel.

we chose the forester. (  :( pinoy pa man din yung salsman ng toyota) it small, simple yet effective and packs a lot of power.    i guess theres a specific customer base for rav4.  IMO, its like a highlander made affordable.

the car will be delivered on wednesday.  ill be posting pictures in a day or two.

I was planning to get a Tacoma double cab (4door) sana, kaso sobrang mahal na naman ng gas at everyweek pa tumataas dito.
Ang baba ng mpg nung tacoma double cab, kung access cab naman or regular cab eh sobrang liit ng loob. Ang mahal naman nung ibang Toyota suv, baka mag Matrix na lang ako. or puwede rin Rav4 or CRV.

hehe, dalawa lang reaction dyan...either they look at me at disbelief or they'd give me a wink...lol! :-o


anyway, finally, my car is ipod compatible.

a cool dude designed an aux-in board that could bypass the CD enabling us fellow subie owners the ability to add line-in to our factory car stereo.  the problem with subaru outback and legacy models is that the climate control and stereo are located in one circuit board.  di pwdeng paghiwalayin.    pero 2007 models will have one na daw.  so the decision for us owners is buy the $45 kit or bite the depreciation and trade... @_@

so here are some pix.  first dismantling the car stereo.
(http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y52/tochiendy/dismantle.jpg)

next two pixs i borrowed na as the stupid me forgot to take a pix during actual implant.  heres the kit.  it will connect between the CD and the amp.  
(http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y52/tochiendy/board.jpg)

a step by step instruction was provided in the kit.
(http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y52/tochiendy/instruct3.jpg)

i hid the stereo patch calbe near the front passenger seat.
(http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y52/tochiendy/hiddenwire.jpg)

finished product.
(http://i3.photobucket.com/albums/y52/tochiendy/finished.jpg)

i used belkin car kit.  it comes with line out so your ipod gives out a clean signal.  its also advisable to use a line filter to avoid distortions coming from the radiator.

guys, have you heard about the "leaf spring support" for pick-ups, AUV's?  i can't find a pic online but i saw one sa Handyman and nabasa ko din sa isang gadget magazine.  sabi it helps your car not to sag at the rear when you bring heavy loads.  it gives your leaf spring extended life.

any comments regarding this?  is it ok to have it installed?  won't it damage your car?

thanks.. its the US version (gas) though so i need to tune its ECU, experiencing some back-fire.. anyway, the only things that are modified are the tyres, rim, shocks, leaf spring, suspension lift, 4x4 gearbox, extended drive shaft, solid alloy ARB molded bumpers, aftermarket winch and sports intake..

the rest are stock.. if you want to customize your hilux, i can direct you to the head of our team and consult for modifications that you want to show the best off your hilux =)

sayang bro.. sa last day pa naman maganda ang car show.. di mo naabutan yung sumasayaw na naka two-piece na naka t-back :D

Quote
ganda nung DB9, at nung s2000.. hehehehe

they're both owned by sir Alex, the owner of Alex Restoration Services

btw, the S2000 won the best in show (car class), the "Elenor" won the best restored car cuz it was penalized for being late (the owner spent 6 million but after seeing it fire up, OMG! will be the only thing on your mind) and yeah, it can beat all that turbo-charge hondas you see on a quarter mile race.. and Aston Martin Vanquish is only an accent piece..

thanks bro.. the pickup is a two seater only.. others will be forced to ride on the bed at the back..

btw, its a gas engine so save up for atleast 1k-1.5k for gas.. it consumes more than a ford expedition but helluva faster and kicks serious acceleration and torque..

why dont you go MR2? there are lots of 2nd hand ones w/ still mint condition, you just have to trick it up for your taste and imo much cheaper and performs better than buying a brand new miata..

Practicalities? I think practicalities are out of the equation with these (at least in the Philippines) relatively rare cars hehe. I'm just checking out a future project car. Something to "rice up" (yup that's not a typo).

MR2 = good tuning potential in terms of powering it up but i hear it's prone to oversteer.  a friend who drives a mivec'd lander says that some of the mr2 boys of the mr2 club can't keep up with him on the uphill.

in TRS interclub trackday at BRC, my friend's 93T'd lancer easily smoked the mr2s we were with.
Title: Re: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: lahar on October 03, 2006, 03:48:49 PM
I guess the torque is on the low side. I'm not into speed (well maybe a little), handling is more important for me.

then the mx-5 is for you. it's underpowered but is a great fun to drive.

my soon to be father in law bought a 94' lite ace.
i borrowed it and it overheats whether i exceed 80KpH and sustain it for more than 10mins. or if i do a long drive running above 60KpH.
i have to run it below 60KpH just to maintain the temperature. try doing that on Edsa or in any major road. even a tricyle would overtake me.. alot  :silly:

Weird,  my ride's temp goes down the faster I go. Nasa ilalim kasi ang radiator ng LiteAce unlike other vehicles na exposed. Better have the radiator checked anyway, baka clogged or madumi.

Honda Pilot:  Php 2.5M

doesn't look appealing for me and it's pricey.  looks like an AUV.  haven't seen an actual unit and see if it deserves its price.

the problem in some fortuner is due to the 'rushed' production cause by too high demands.
the diesel in my innova works perfectly. very powerful, quiet yet easily goes 7.5 km/liter in city driving.

based on my experiences, our crosswinds and trooper diesel engine can't matched the toyota's. and these isuzu diesels are notorious for their smoke belching problems.

7.5km to the liter? Isn't that too high? Parang gasoline na yan instead of diesel. Even in city driving I get at least 15km/L in my Isuzu.

We have a '97 Nissan Terrano and a '95 Tamaraw FX.

Terrano: All-power and has a whooping 2.7 engine, 4WD. Leather seats. It's a waste of gas and has almost over 40ltrs diesel capacity. Pioneer 45Wx4 stereo and 6 disc CD changer. It looks fat and short, but inside you can almost extend your feet. Carrier on the roof. Ice-cold A/C (more than the temps in Baguio). A/T

FX: Dati all-powered (though the seller removed the power windows because his child's arm is tuck in there, the power locks and alarm is broken down). 1.5 engine. It looks almost b/n when washed and if it only doesn't have some bumps. Leather seats. M/T


Started practice driving last year, and i'm the one who drives if the place is near.

great seeing the old generations lancers. dumaan din kami sa iba't ibang generations niyan. from the box-type 2nd gen, to the aerodynamic-looking 4th gen, to the compact "lancer-itlog" 5th gen, and our last, the "lancer-pizza" 6th gen.

pero yung favorite ko sa lahat, shempre yung naging kotse ko, yung lancer itlog formally known as:
the Lancer 1995 EL: All-pawis steering, all-pawis windows, all-pawis locks and a whooping 1.3 engine, front wheel drive. Curduroy seat covers. Tipid sa gas, bitin sa hataw. Shempre may sounds maski tunog lata, but I have a discman which has a car adaptor that I plug in to the tape deck (who needs a cd changer? pwede mo ba bitbitin yan?). It looks like an itlog on the outside but inside it looks like a car. Radio antenna on the roof. Yung aircon parang tagaytay lang (more than the temps in Marikina so ok na din). M/T.

UPDATE) Death toll in LPG truck explosion now over 20
Cops rule incident an ‘accident’
By Thea Alberto, Hernan P. dela Cruz
INQUIRER.net, Inquirer
Last updated 03:11pm (Mla time) 02/02/2007


PAGADIAN CITY, Philippines -- At least 22 persons, including a three-year old boy, were killed and at least 10 others injured when dozens of tanks of liquefied petroleum gas (LPG) being hauled by a truck exploded in Zamboanga del Sur late Friday morning, officials said.
Chief Superintendent Jaime Caringal, Mindanao regional police director, immediately ruled the incident which happened past 11 a.m. in Sitio (sub-village) Diorok, Barangay (village) Lacupayan, Tigbao, “an accident.”
Caringal said they were still trying to get an accurate count but acknowledged that the final toll could still rise as emergency workers continued to retrieve bodies and check the different hospitals where casualties were rushed.
Major Gary Lachica, executive officer of the Army's 53rd Infantry Battalion, said troops who responded to the incident estimated “dozens” may have been killed and that the injury count was still mounting.
Most of the victims were aboard an RS Transit passenger bus from Imelda town on its way here.
Based on initial reports he received, Lachica said the truck was hauling the LPG from here to Zamboanga City when it turned turtle along the highway. The accident caused a traffic jam but the driver of the bus still tried to inch his way past the overturned truck.
"It was at this moment that the explosions occurred," Lachica said.
However, Caringal said other accounts from drivers in of other vehicles said the rear end of the truck suddenly caught fire as it traversed the highway.
Most of the victims sustained burns and wounds from flying debris. There were reports that a number of the dead were torn apart by the force of the explosion.

Another poster (mbiege) followed up with some info on how dangerous and volatile LPG is:

Quote
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION/PROPERTIES:
Appearance:Rapidly evaporating liquid or gas with rotten cabbage - like smell.
Initial Boiling Point:- 42 to 0 deg C.
Melting Point:Not applicable
Specific Gravity:0.49 to 0.57 (liquid)
Solubility in Water: Very slight
Vapour Pressure at 20 Deg C:107 to 730 kpag
Flash Point:-104 to 60 deg C
Lower Flammability Limit:1.9 % in air
Upper Flammability Limit:9.5 % in air
Vapour density:1.5 to 2.0 air = 1%
Volatiles:100 %
OTHER PROPERTIES:Evaporation Rate:Rapid
Auto ignition Point:482 to 5820 deg C

From this Wikipedia site, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flash_point:
Petrol:

    * Flash point: >-45 °C (-49 °F)
    * Autoignition temperature: 246 °C (475 °F)

Diesel:

    * Flash point: >62 °C (144 °F)
    * Autoignition temperature: 210 °C (410 °F)

LPG

    * Flash point: -104 to 60 deg C
    * Autoignition Point: 482 to 5820 deg C

IMO the government should have a second look at the legality of LPG fueled vehicles. With such a broad flashpoint it is very dangerous to be lugging about a tank of LPG. Couple that with the fact that these tanks are typically highly pressurized and you have a recipe for disaster.

Post by: lahar on February 03, 2007, 04:30:19 AM
But AFAIK, mas maraming safety features ang LPG tank na ginagamit sa mga kotse kesa sa bahay (thicker casing and more safety valves). Halos lahat ng taxi na nasakyan ko dito sa Japan, LPG ang gamit, hindi mo mahahalata sa hitsura, or hatak.

Last month lang nung umuwi ako, may nakasabay ako sa Petron Commonwealth habang nag-papachange-oil, yung isang Toyota taxi naman nagpapa-undercoat.nang binuksan yung trunk, naka-LPG, pero hindi naman gaano nakain yung luggage space, halos ganun pa rin ang laki.

Based on initial reports he received, Lachica said the truck was hauling the LPG from here to Zamboanga City when it turned turtle along the highway. The accident caused a traffic jam but the driver of the bus still tried to inch his way past the overturned truck.
"It was at this moment that the explosions occurred," Lachica said.
However, Caringal said other accounts from drivers in of other vehicles said the rear end of the truck suddenly caught fire as it traversed the highway.
Most of the victims sustained burns and wounds from flying debris. There were reports that a number of the dead were torn apart by the force of the explosion.

Another poster (mbiege) followed up with some info on how dangerous and volatile LPG is:

Quote
PHYSICAL DESCRIPTION/PROPERTIES:
Appearance:Rapidly evaporating liquid or gas with rotten cabbage - like smell.
Initial Boiling Point:- 42 to 0 deg C.
Melting Point:Not applicable
Specific Gravity:0.49 to 0.57 (liquid)
Solubility in Water: Very slight
Vapour Pressure at 20 Deg C:107 to 730 kpag
Flash Point:-104 to 60 deg C
Lower Flammability Limit:1.9 % in air
Upper Flammability Limit:9.5 % in air
Vapour density:1.5 to 2.0 air = 1%
Volatiles:100 %
OTHER PROPERTIES:Evaporation Rate:Rapid
Auto ignition Point:482 to 5820 deg C

From this Wikipedia site, http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flash_point:
Petrol:

    * Flash point: >-45 °C (-49 °F)
    * Autoignition temperature: 246 °C (475 °F)

Diesel:

    * Flash point: >62 °C (144 °F)
    * Autoignition temperature: 210 °C (410 °F)

LPG

    * Flash point: -104 to 60 deg C
    * Autoignition Point: 482 to 5820 deg C

IMO the government should have a second look at the legality of LPG fueled vehicles. With such a broad flashpoint it is very dangerous to be lugging about a tank of LPG. Couple that with the fact that these tanks are typically highly pressurized and you have a recipe for disaster.

Sabi dun sa tsikot.com, CO2 cylinders daw hindi LPG?

Guys,

Baka meron kyo marecommend na auto shop or mechanic?  Ung magaling talaga pero d naman taga sa presyo.  Papaayos ko ung kotse ni GF.  Laging nauubusan ng clutch fluid.  Every month nagkakarga ng clutch fluid.

Also looking for brand new head unit.  Ung meron aux in sa harap for ipods, psp, etc..

TIA
Title: Re: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: lahar on February 15, 2007, 10:38:23 AM
Kung nagbabawas ng clutch fluid obviously may tagas. Pwedeng simpleng linis lang i.e. flushing and disassembly and re-assembly plus repair kit na rin. Or meron butas sa line. May nakikita ka bang mga tulo? Pwede rin na nagtatapon dahil sa lubak. Minsan nagiging brittle na yung takip sa fluid cup, hindi na tama yung seal.

Yung HU, magkano ba budget, meron mga budget Sony Xplode models, meron din yung Daichi brand (AFAIK OEM manufacturer sila) na sub-P5k, nakita ko sa Ace.

I just got an HID kit installed in a civic 06. 6k color temperature (white).  malakas nga siya.  buti hindi sabog yung ilaw unlike HID kits installed in Vios, Jazz and City.
Title: Re: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: lahar on April 26, 2007, 08:20:41 AM
alikishi,

pang HID yata kasi yung headlight housing ng Civic '06 model, while yung sa Vios, Jazz at City is for the normal halogen type. kaya kahit HID ang ilagay, sabog ang ilaw.
Title: Re: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: alikishi on April 26, 2007, 08:51:42 AM
yep... that's what I thought too.  yung 2.0 na top of the line civic is already pre-installed with a 4.3k HID and since most probably hindi naman sila magpapalit ng housing for the lower models, pwede na rin sa akin.

Right now, I just like the look of an all white headlights, though I left the high-beam with the halogen bulb for the rainy season if ever

So they're not projectors?  (judging only from the last pic)  Nice white HIDs though.  How far was that white car? 

I think the reach is a bit short though.

Yep, reflector talaga yung headlights ko.  and yeah parang medyo short yung reach.  is there a way to "realign" the lamp?

the white car siguro is around 20 to 25 meters away (though that is a very rough estimate... mahina kasi ako sa mga distances)

Guys, I'm considering in purchasing a Honda Accord like the one in the pics/images below.  I plan to use it as my second/extra car (I now drive a 1996 mid-size sedan already).

(http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e213/egzbuen/Other%20Cars/HondaAccord2.jpg)

But have the following questions (specially to those who owns or owned one):

1. What are usual problems that came out with this unit?
2. Is there a 2 liter - manual transmission version of this car?
3. Is this the 98' to 01' Accord model?
4. How much do these cost nowadays?
5. How's gas consumption and/or fuel efficiency (city/highway)?
6. Things to look out for in buying a second hand of this car?

Thanks in advance

any good and cheap car wash places in manila you could recommend?  how about recommending a good car website?  since ppc is mainly a computer site and i dont think this is the right place to ask more technical questions.  i think this thread is just basic knowhow of cars for ppc members by ppc members and not the more advanced stuff like the pc solutions people here suggest.

mababa yung number kasi iba yung computation dito kesa diyan ng octane rating, I posted it on one of the topics here, pareho yung computation ng Europe saka asia pero iba dito.

Lumabas na mas mahal yung lower octane sa table kasi sobrang mahal na ng gas dito, yung 91 octane na dati kong ginagamit ay $3.75/gallon na which is an all time high dito. Kaya napilitan ako gumamit ng lower octane dahil sa mahal ng gas at saka wala namang benefits masyado ang paggamit ng higher octane dito kung 87 octane lang ang required ng sasakyan.

octane rating here = RON
octane rating in the states = RON+MON average

Meaning their actual octane rating is about 5 more than what we have. 91 octane US = 96 octane here, 95 octane US = 100 octane here.

As for fuel prices... Check this out. US fuel prices are very low, but local fuel prices are actually pretty low compared to the world average.

what does RON and MON mean?
Title: Re: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: i2mp on May 27, 2007, 11:12:39 AM
from http://www.carbibles.com/fuel_engine_bible.html:
Quote
Measuring octane - RON, MON and the difference between America and the rest of the world.
Quote
Just so you know, the octane number is actually an imprecise measure of the maximum compression ratio at which a particular fuel can be burned in an engine without detonation. There are actually two numbers - RON (Research octane number) and MON (Motor Octane Number). The RON simulates fuel performance under low severity engine operation. The MON simulates more severe operation that might be incurred at high speed or high load and can be as much as 10 points lower than the RON. In Europe, what you'll see on the petrol pumps is the RON. However, in America, what you'll see on the petrol pump is usually the "mean" octane number - notified as (R+M)/2 - the average of both the RON and MON. This is why there is an apparent discrepancy between the octane values of petrol in America versus the rest of the world. Euro95 unleaded in Europe is 95 octane but it's the equivalent of American (R+M)/2 89 octane.
In America, low altitude petrol stations typically sell three grades of petrol with octane ratings of 87, 89 and 91. High altitude stations typically also sell three grades, but with lower values - 85, 87 and 89.

You mean the HAMMER? I agree. Engine and drivetrain aside (the Hammer gets those from subic-junkyard Nissan Patrols) the workmanship on the body and cabin is much better than on this POS PhUV. If Alana motors has the will to push with a similar project, i'd much rather give money to them than to the people who did the PhUV.

Wrong!

The technology and the machinery are already available.  None of the MPMAV members are just really that committed to this project because its an act of novelty.

The principles of the design aren't too difficult either, especially with the new generation of CAD CAM software, its a poor excuse NOT to invest in mainstream manufacturing technology and come up with a half-a$$ed product such as the PhUV and say, "give us a break".

That's Pinoy mediocrity right there.  This project was ill-conceived with the wrong principles and a waning sense of direction in the first place.  The project is dead even before it got off the ground.

Short-sightedness is the reason why the PhUV builders hide what they can in paint and filler.

I am frankly disappointed in them for turning a source of pride into a source of ridicule.

Even the ubiquitous jeepney has curved surfaces (the hood, and the rear fender) so the equipment and the expertise is there.

i would advice for you to make it a down payment I believe ford focus is giving a low down at 99,000 for a focus..

masyadong maraming maintenance if they have lasted for more 5 yrs specially mataas na ang mileage..

but if you know the person and  di mataas mileage i think its okay..

toyota vios has a new look very nice lower lang yata yung down ..

may 1.3 and 1.5

E     1.3 E M/T     Php649,000.00
G    1.5 A/T    Php765,000.00
G    1.5 A/T (w/ Leather)    Php811,000.00
G    1.5 M/T    Php730,000.00

best deal on financing would be on banks and not on the dealers.  pag toyota 30% for 3 years or 10% every year na gusto mo finance.  pag banks they could go as low as 19% or even less if youre good at bargaining.  hingi ka din ng mga feebies.  lahat ng ito ay depende sa galing mo mag negotiate.  and also, not looking eager to buy a car helps a lot.

If I have that money, medyo mag-iipon pa ako ng konte for a Civic 1.8S.  884k yung matic.  849k yung manual. 

Toyota is also a good brand.  But with their car's tag, I'd go for Innova instead.

if you're going to get a Lancer or a Corolla, just wait for the newer models to arrive. ganda ng 9th Generation Lancer and Tenth Generation Corolla. :) oh, pati yung 2008 Mazda 6. ^_^

Focus Diesel!

It's Focus' top-of-the-line model.  21.70 km/L daw with a massive 320 torque vs 185 for 2.0 gas.  Common rail with 6-speed MT.  Nice. 

But I still want the Civic 1.8S.  :lol:

if it's a first car,  buy a more recent model para less maintenance hassles.  pricey yata ang 255k for the base model civic of that generation.

my mom just bought a 2nd hand car nissan sentra sedan 4-door. it needs major repair like repaint, new tires, wiper busted, pawis stearing, glass, door .etc. but engine still ok. How much do you think it will cost to make it look new again? btw i dont know much about cars but i know how to drive hehehe.
Title: Re: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: lahar on September 09, 2007, 06:35:50 AM
Apporximately:

Repaint= P30k
Tires= P3k a piece

The rest hindi ka naman nag-elaborate kung ano problema. Wiper motor or blades? Broken glass or doors? Pawis steering? Baka stock naman talaga na pawis steering yan.

BTW, learn.

i was expecting this, na rather buy another 2nd hand car with the price of cost for repairs hehehe. tried to tell my mom to just return it but she still insisted. she's planning on spending 30-40k max.

kahit na hindi mukhang brandnew basta malinis lang tignan kaya ba ang 30-40k?

told her id rather use my scooter than drive that thing hehehe.

I really like the new Camry.  Aurion, I think, is a model one step above Camry.  Re: Aurion "sport", pwede yan dito sa pinas.  I mean get a Camry then get body kits from Concept One or other "pimp my ride" shops in the metro. 

Check out 2007 Camry US version.  Mas maganda yung Aurion-design Camry natin dito.

sweet car riceboy! infinity cars are always on my wishlist.

anyway, my OEM tires reached 48K miles na.  im thinking of getting michelin primacy grand touring all-season tires x4.  i was choosing between goodyear tripletreads or another michelin - pilot sport pero medyo mahal na talaga.

thinking of puttin them on these new wheels as well.  i plan to put winter tires on my OEM wheels (offset 48).

so which one you guys look better?

The car is the world's fastest production car at 256.14 mph (412.233 km/h), a speed reportedly achieved on September 13 2007 in West Richland, WA. The results of this test, verified by Guinness World Records on October 9 2007, gave the SSC Aero the world's fastest production car title.

thanks bossing!  awesome choice of tires you gave me there!

bought them na :mellow: 

i went with michelin primacy.  michelin quality, grand touring tires, 60K mile tread warranty...all season... the works!

sa wheels i chose the kz-l.  dami pang mas magandang wheels kaya lang medyo di na kaya ng bulsa.  me winter tires pa akong bibilhin.

tirerack was awesome.  had my wheels and tires mounted and balance using hunter road force for FREE ! :silly:



... now im tempted to replace my rotors.  brembo slotted looks nice, hmmmm...

^^^ the tires are awesome dude.  runs so smooth kala ko pati suspension ko na-upgrade hehehe!  thanks for the tips!

calvin, i need your advice, if ever i decided to replace my rotors should i still depress the pistons?  do i even have to mingle with my brake pads?

brembo dont have rear rotors for my car.  im going with DBA pero in a few months pa.  wala pa akong spare time.  either the dba street series slotted or 4000 series slotted.  parang sobra atang bling yung gold series nila.  :o

i just feel the need to replace my rotors since the stock ones gets soo rusted.  typical of snow belt driven cars.  salt laden roads does the damage.  advantage nang DBA ay rust proofing.  OE replacemnt brembo rotors dont.

Title: Re: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: calvin on January 02, 2008, 09:21:59 PM
doc,

I talked to a car club buddy who has used DBA parts and he recommends the 4000 series. He says the gold series only looks good while it's still new but as soon as normal wear and tear sets in it looks unsightly specially with revealing wheels like the ones you installed.

He says the 4000 series also performs much better than the street series, based on his experience.

You only need to depress the pistons just enough to slide in the new rotors.
Just make sure to remove about 20mL of brake fluid from the reservoir to make room for displaced caliper fluid.

Oy Pythonista! buhay ka pa!  :)

The entry-level Focus is a nicer deal actually. They removed the airbag (ABS nalang naiwan) and the rear aircon vents, but upgraded the engine to the 1.8L Duratec (previously in the Focus 1.8 Ghia). And dropped the price to 759K for the manual transmission. Plus low down.

Darnit. I really wanted a Focus manual (yung luma pa yun.. 1.6L manual tranny) pero pang-lolo daw sabi ng wife ko. The Focus diesel is so expensive, for 1.1M bibili nalang ako ng entry-level CRV for 100k more. The new CRV is growing on me, and even the entry-level one has dual airbags na.

but my (local) dream car has got to be the Hyundai Santa Fe CRDi. Although at 1.6M layo na....

The cars are about even I think, with the outie having more features, SF with better economy (c/o the CRDI engine). Subjectively I like the looks of the outie better, the standard 18" wheels really do give it a macho stance.

Among the small 'utes though, i'd have myself a Forester XT. Fastest by far!

visit motioncars.com for more detailed explanation.  the rear looks the same as the old altis.

@lahar
nagbabago yung signal stalk for sure, yung wiper stalk nagbabago as a consequence of the signal stalk.

by convention kasi yung signal stalk dapat nasa outer side (toward the door) ng steering column. pansin mo may mga sasakyan na column shift, so yung wiper controls or headlight controls minsan nasa dashboard (usually american cars/trucks), pero yung signal nandun palagi sa side ng manibela na malapit sa pinto.

you sure its 4-5km/gal not 4-5km/l?  eh di matakaw nga talaga.  kasi ang 4-5km/l for me is already decent considering its a 5.7L engine.  ang focus kasi na 1.8 5km/l. 

maganda talaga focus diesel.  ang only problem na sabi sakin yung loob daw dami binawas compared sa dati na 2.0 hatch ng focus na gas.  walang moonroof ung diesel which is a big factor for some people

Guys, need your opinions.

Which way should I go as my daily driver?

With my current budget:

Option 1 = 2000 or 2001 Galant
Option 2 = 1999 or 2000 Accord

In case I will be able to further push up my budget

Option 1 = 2003 Camry
Option 2 = 2003 Cefiro
Option 3 = 2003 Accord

Transmission, specifically the A/T model (which is prolly what one would want for a daily drive). Among the original choices i'd get the Accord, from the budget-up choices either the Camry (1st choice) or the Accord (2nd choice).

Title: Re: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: egzbuen on March 11, 2008, 12:04:33 AM
why not get a 2nd hand civic or altis nalang?

I'm currently using a mid-size sedan already and really am used to its size and power.

I tried driving my brothers 2000 civic vti rs and it felt like it had less torque/power than my current ride. Plus it didn't feel as good as my car when driving along NLEX and/or SLEX above 100kmh. I find mid-size sedans more stable on highway driving.

I also tried inquiring from mechanics and, in terms of repairing and/or fixing suspension problems, they always find it so hard to make "patino", using their own term, when trying to repair the suspension of the 2001 or newer civics (dimension body).

On the other hand, I really don't like the looks of the Altis (2002 or newer).

Title: Re: Perpetual Car Thread
Post by: nitsuj on March 14, 2008, 06:17:14 AM
yup IMHO the "Dimension" Civic's (ES) are the worst amongst all Civic's due to poor front suspension, etc. but the day-to-day handling is quite better compared to earlier (EK) 1997~ Civic's. oh, and better fuel consumption too thanks to the 3-Stage VTEC, ganda rin ng rev sa dulo. Rear seats are spacious. anyways, we sold it after a few years, dami na rin sira sa pangilalim hehe :)

according to some users, sirain daw 2000/2001 "shark" Galant or at least hindi ganun kaganda build quality compared to previous Galant's and current generation Galant's, also bad resale value.

the 1999 Accord feels more stable and sportier at the same time, medyo malakas lang sa gas for a Honda, but torque is good for its size. Interior is also very spacious at hindi mukhang tinipid.

regarding Cefiro, it's really one of my fave cars, I like the simple but elegant looks. good torque especially for the 2.4L or up models. but considering Nissan Philippine's reputation, medyo mababa resale value. although that can be a good thing if you're hunting for a bargain.

I really like how the 8G galants looks like. Inside the cabin, the Accord looks more luxurious though.

Anybody who drives a 2000 or 2001 Accord here who can give me the pros and cons of that model.

That big gaping front grille (audi, nissan GTR, mitsu Evo) seems to be the "look" nowadays. Didn't like it at first, but it looks natural on the GTR

=). I don't have teh molaahs to buy a skyline so it's not a 'problem' of mine. It's entertaining though to read a bit 'bout these supercars  and know what they can do. Still remember the time when i was following this subaru and s13 going down from tagaytay and was in total awe how these things accelerate on a whim!
 (http://www.eliseobeltran.com/emo/th_cry4.gif)

(Not that i hate my tsikot, far from it. First car! It serves me well (EK vti civic)- and brings me from point a to b comfortably. Never bogged down on me too and i log 800Kms. a month so i'm rather attached to it. Of course there are greater cars... )

...I guess my sig demands an explanation: I just got burned, burned real bad by that brand be it TV's, radios and pc parts hence my sig... Ironically my phone's an SE, lurv it, and it's still works for four months now. 4 months! Wow! Features-wise it's great so i',m crossing my fingers that it doesn't have the dreaded and infamous sony timer (http://www.dannychoo.com/blog_entry/eng/128/Sony+Timer/)

If anyone in the Philippines imports the R35, I wonder where he'll be able to drive it to enjoy its nimbleness.

OT:

We still have our Sony TV which was bought circa 1986-87.
It has been repaired twice during its lifetime when maids accidentally plugged it in 220V sockets.
Remote still works too.

Accord driver here.'06 but my dad had a '94 used and the only problem he had was in 2005 when he had to get the transmission fixed(automatic).Then my mom coerced(hehe)him to get a new one and guess what,another accord.My brother also drives an accord '06 coupe.He had a Subaru WRX ,which i really liked but ride was bumpy.You can't go wrong with an Accord as long as you take care of it's regular maintenance i.e. oil change.

tell us later bout your fuel consumption. My dad's 2.0 'Vee gets 10.9km/li accdng to the trip computer, but then again we usually don't go through city traffic.  We upgraded to a leather interior but the quality of the leather isn't the same what's in the 2.4... i suspect they outsourced the job instead of getting it from thailand...

yeah white looks good on the thing. =)

it's shedding its cute-in-it's-own-way,  kermit-the-frog, tennis-shoe look. I know some people will love the new front euro styling.

But I was hoping that it'd evolve into something akin to the civic hatchback of the 90's. Actually a few people were starting to say that the jazz is the new civic... and now this:

Instead, it's turning into  a mini mini-van imho or the unproportional (height:width/wheelbase) avanza. Especially in blue, the avanza looks like a joke. My car company of choice is losing its way =(...

Quote
Here stands the wave of the future: a car that can travel 40 miles without using a single drop of gas. It requires no fill-ups every 40 miles, all you have to do is plug it into the wall to recharge it. It has an extra clean burning ethanol engine to create electricity if you run out.

It'll be great if it delivers what it promises. More power to them. (And a bail-out as they are hoping for.) 

But I'm an avid reader of TTAC (lot's of good writing there), and at least according to them, it's very possible that GM as we know it might not even exist in 2010 (might be headed for chapter 11.) But if it does roll out, it better be good or at least decent cause it's a ~40K $ car!

Clearly a Lamborghini, but nothing quite like it. A super car without equals: the Lamborghini Reventón is a road vehicle with an extreme specification and, at the same time, a limited edition masterpiece – a coherent style, angular with sharp lines, inspired by the very latest aeronautics.

With just 20 produced, each 1 Million Euro (without taxes) Lamborghini Reventón
is a symbol of extreme exclusivity, yet still offering the extraordinary performance that makes the Reventón so unrivalled: under the completely autonomous design, the Reventón possesses the entire technical and dynamic competence of the twelve cylinder Lamborghini.

funny how i react to cars these days...

Riced out japs- pffft, no skill, no money brats who live a quarter-mile at a time.

BMWs - pfft. Corporate tools who live a fiscal quarter at a time. 

A group of Porsche climbing tagaytay- hmmmm that's nice.

Ferrari- that's it?! This is the creme de la creme??? pfft. small penis enhancer.


GTR - Whoaaaahh!!!! Just saw a gray one stuck in traffic near manila city hall (it's on a flat bed truck) That car just has this aura, it's reputation very much precedes it - a brawny technological wonder that's going to gobble up euro posers and ricers for breakfast Om nom nom nom nom!

For those three I mentioned, detailing kasi ang ginagawa. Bubusisiin talaga nila buong makina mo.. Lalagyan pa ng engine dressing pagkatapos for that 'car show' look.

IIRC, mga 700-1000 pesos. Kung quick wash lang talaga, mga 250-300.

Thanks!  ayos 'to napakalapit lang, hehe.

I'm only planning to have the car washed, the interior vacuumed and the engine washed - for now. 

Kakaawa na 'tong minamaneho ko eh - puti pa man din.

I contacted BNT.

Carwash (Wash, Vacuum, Tireblack) + Engine wash = P260.00 for a sedan

I'll ask about a wax job but, frankly, I'm more concerned with having the brakes, clutch and electrical wiring checked up.

Also, magkano kaya ang magpapalit ng ilaw (not sure if it even has a lamp) ng luminescent gauges?  Napupundi ba talaga yon or could it be a problem lang sa wiring?  I think aftermarket gauges na 'to.

EDIT:  after googling around I just found out wala palang lamp ang electroluminescent gauges...  hmn...  mukhang magastos pag pinaayos ko yung gauges ha.  Baka power supply ang problem.  Pwede pa kayang ibalik yung ilaw sa stock gauge?  Right now ang may ilaw lang yung odometer at sobrang labo pa.

BTW, the car in question is a 1996 (or 95?) Civic LXi.  Dina-drive ko lang but it's not mine.  Nasa abroad ang may-ari kaya pinapagamit.  Hehe.

'99 civic here (uy! ten years na siya.) I checked the owner's manual and it didn't have instructions on how to change the light gauge cluster. It's not even mentioned. The others like cabin and plate number lights were described and i changed the bulbs that have already become dim.

Iba pa yung owner's manual sa service manual eh. And i'm not sure if it's available for us outside the casa service bay. The most complete and authoritative consumer manual out there is the hayne's manual. Torque specs for bolt and instructions to maintain and repair your car. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=260435140046 Someday i'm gonna get me one

Local HCP forum? A few guys there got the haynes.

Nagpapalakad ako kay Raffy London.  3 years and 2 cars na.  Insurance guy siya, kilala sa mga car clubs.

No appearance yung registration, wala pang charge yung service.  Last time hiningi niya lang yung details ng auto tapos yung registration number.  Pag dating ng hapon or the next day, delivered sa bahay yung mga papel at sticker. 

Babayaran mo lang yung cost ng insurance, registration at emission test.  Kumikita siya sa insurance and emissions dahil negosyo niya yun.  Abutan mo na lang ng pang gas yung rider kung mabait siya sa iyo.

Heto yung multiply niya:

Guys, need suggestions.

I am looking for a car around this budget. So far, I am thinking about the 2004-2005 Toyota 2.4 Camry or the 2007 Hyundai Tucson. Anyone here have these cars as personal drivers? Can you give your personal reviews?

Was also thinking of a c180 or c220 96-97 model but still half-hearted due to price of maintenance concerns.

Please give me your thoughts and/or inputs on these cars and any other suggestion within the price range.

Cheers.

the camry is a good choice.  its a luxury sedan so dont expect much from its fuel mileage.  the tucson is like a sedan in a way since it also seats the same number of people but its distance from the ground is higher.  if you want fuel efficiency with power you should really try the tucson.  just make sure its the 4x2 crdi one.  there is also a 4x4 crdi and a petrol variant.  from what i know the 4x2 crdi is the best choice if youre going to get a tucson.  maintenance wise the tucson is also not that expensive so its a safe choice

prado,
na-aksidente ako nung tuesday. along ayala ako, biglang may tumawid na pedestrian na hindi nakatingin. eh ang lapit ko na sa pedestrian lane, tapos tumatakbo yung tao. pag brake at swerve ko, he ran into my car sa right side. tapos tumama yung ulo niya sa windshield. ayun, basag yung windshield. yung tao naman may 7 stitches sa ulo, dislocated shoulder at bugbog yung katawan. naiinis lang ako kasi walang tawiran sa area na yun. konting lakad nalang nasa underpass na siya ng ayala eh. anyway, nangyari na yun...kaya eto, sobrang laki tuloy ng gastos ko.

yung windshield ko napapalitan ko na sa aguila auto glass. ok dun, mura at pulido yung gawa. kelangan ko nalang pagawa yung body at hood kasi may yupi. pati yung signal lights nalang.

mga brothers, magkano ba ang rough estimate niyo ng isang pair ng signal light from the surplus shop? wala kasi akong idea kung magkano eh. mga less than 2k ba? para lang may idea ako at di ako mataga ng husto. hehe. thanks.

Any recommendations for good tires? My AD07's are at the end of their life, it seems. My right rear tire contracted 4(!) holes. That tire has like 7 holes patched altogether. The AD08's in the market cost an arm and a leg and what's ironic is since getting the AD07's I haven't been to a trackday, rallycross or slalom event.

Does anyone have a table of prices and grip ratings for tires that are available? My size is 195/55/R15. I'm not sure what my budget will be but definitely not something that costs as much as the AD08.
Title: Re: Perpetual Car Thread

Wow neovas, bigtime. :p I've been hearing about Nankang NSII's being the most back for buck tires for daily/track use. A lot of HCP track addicts are on NSIIs because of its attractive price at around 2.5k, IIRC. Yokohama s-drives and dunlop direzzas are both pegged at around 3.5k at evangelista. Good grip and quiet daw.

we have the same tire size.  my Toyo T1R set cost me 2.8k each at dkc a few months ago.  at par with most tires of with the same treadwear rating when it comes to dry grip. wet grip is excellent, the primary reason why i bought it.

there's postive talk about the federal 595 rs-r; cheap but very grippy, but at the cost of treadwear, of course.  iirc the treadwear rating is about the same as the AD07.

masinsinang linis at pakintab.  to the last "detail."

may exterior, interior and engine bay detailing.  yung levels depende sa condition ng auto mo.

sa exterior: body wash,  clay bar application,  scratch removal, polishing and wax

yung interior di ko alam,  di pa ako nakakapag interior detailing.  sa engine detailing naman:  steam or pressure wash, degreasing, application of dressing

then it seems im right in a way.  since i said na tinatanggal nya ang 'swirl' marks on your exterior pain.  kasi sobrang 'detailed' ang pag linis at mas maganda ang paraan na pag punas sa kotse mo to minimize the swirl marks.  isnt that somewhat correct?  hehe

mabilis and matipid ang D15B. 

lahar is right... pag-isipan mong mabuti.  the 30k is just the engine/tranny and wiring harness.  wala pa yung cost of installing and wiring the new engine.  plus other expenses that involve replacing worn out parts on the engine (and the car itself).  and you have to fix the papers of your car since you changed the engine.  set aside a total of 60k siguro (30k for the engine) just to be safe.

a more powerful engine also needs better tires and suspension too so that's also something to look out for.
Title: Re: Perpetual Car Thread

Bukod pa sa installation and wiring gagastos ka rin sa pag reconditon nung engine bago isalpak tulad timing and fan belts, oil seals, waterpump, engine/gear oil. tapos kung hindi narin maganda ang clutch papalitan mo rin yun clutch disc, pressure plate, and release bearing plus reinstallation pa ng a/c.

You also have to trust your instincts and pray you got a good engine. With your old one, at least you know the history, w/ a replacement, you don't know if the owner took care of it, if it suffered a overheat before or if it was overhauled already, etc.

It's best to stay stock unless you're like those guys you see in Fast n the Furious movies.

I visited a Kia showroom yesterday and I fell in-love right away with Kia Soul. :)

^looks like a lovechild of a mini and a rav4 (in a good way.) The consensus is that hyundai has stepped up their game esp. in interior quality, I wonder if kia has also... honda jazz fighter in the making?

You should see its interior as well. Really nice. Unit is much appreciated when you see it in actual. First word that came in me was "fashionista".
