Two things need to be done this time around. Engine timing belt change and whatever components related to it, and scheduled engine lube service which is already due.
Started off with the easiest task which is to change the engine lube. This will be a 30 minutes top job. I still stick with the previous brand and nothing much need to be changed this time around apart from the lube itself and the engine oil filter.
The next task is a very daunting for me, maybe it is walk in the park for the experts. Took almost 2 hours to finish it and majority of the time taken was waiting for the parts to arrive.
Anyway, for the timing belt service (sometime it will be referred as “motor kit”), I opted the following part replacement:
- original motor kit – RM310.00
- original auxiliary / alternator belt – RM95.00
- original 5 liters coolant – RM90.00
- OEM engine water pump (Airtex) – RM200.00
I did not manage to capture few photos of the water pump. Anyway, below is the sample of the water pump from the internet.
