Please accept my apology for not updating this website for almost 10 months since the last posting. Due to time constrain and commitment to job and family has made me swayed to the side and forgot to update the blog.
Anyway, all the DIY, information etc. that I wanted to share with you guys throughout the missing period is listed below. These articles will be categorized as “The 2012; 10 Months Compilation Articles“. Enjoy!
Do It Yourself: Yes
In my last entry, I did mentioned that my temperature reading is bit off and giving me -10 degree on optimal engine operating temperature.
After some reading and info gathering, I managed to narrow down to two factors (mechanical) that will contribute to this error. Firstly, it may due to worn out needle which cost a lot to repair (if replacing the whole meter cluster) or a bit messy if I need to DIY to fix the needle back to original position. Secondly, it may be an issue with the thermostat which is easier to fix but may cost in between with the first two options. I chose the second option.
80K service reached in June. Although the mileage is not reaching the mark, I have decided to do it early as it was time for timing belt as well. Done the service at GeotAuto.
Do It Yourself: N/A
My air conditioning system was out of order on April 30th, 2012. Almost 3 years owning the lion. The system was not working at optimum level couple of months before but it was apparent on April that drove me to have a full system check after countless times the gas being refilled. Early symptom was hissing sound when switched on or off the system. Topping up the gas can only sustained for months before it decreases to weeks. At last, it can only sustained for up to 6 weeks.
