  1. Hi there... When i bought the car i didn't notice it. The sound gradually started became noticeable after a normal oil change at fasttrack adnoc. It was resolved temporarily by adding like 2 bottles of smallest sized liquimoly lifter additive and a very high viscosity engine oil (garage people told me we have to change oil to normal once the sound is gone and they chose their cheapest oil without telling me). I guess they chose 20w50 or something.. it must be there in the thread i don't correctly remember. So i did 3 engine oil changes in less than 3000km and you must be well aware fully synthetic oil changes aren't cheap... So it went away after 2 weeks of oil change. I changed the oil again to normal one i use after driving it for around 2000km.. after like a month the sound came back only noticeable when you hear it by giving 100% concentration with open bonnet otherwise it sounded totally stock. This was a problem when i was trying to sell the car.. eventually i found out my car wasn't originally 80k km but over 200k km cuz japan import 😂 So i stopped caring about. About a month later the car got cancelled (wrecked and total loss) from someone who run a red light. Many people told me it's an exhaust leak. But since it's my car and i can hear how it sounds, i was sure that wasn't the issue. Well anyway to resolve that issue even after adding the lifter additive, i guess its a labour intensive job. People from all the garages i visited told me sell the car because they can give any guarantee that the sound will go. (some of them were german specialists) Hearing the sound for a little during cold starts are fine. It went away back to incognito after a second for me. I dont beileve the lifter additive worked , i guess it just went away with time.. but you can try it out though! no harm, After all its a lifter additive 😁🤙🏻 i hope it goes away in your case so there's a reason for me to believe it works

    LR4 V8 cooling fan noise

    Same! though I think AED1100 for just 'fine' wasn't fair. It must be just for the AC! try turning it off and wait for 2-3 minutes, you must notice the fan turning off/reduction in the loud noise it makes..It might sound louder than the car its just fine.. At first even i thought something was wrong with my car but figured out for free from the internet.

    Tesla rated least reliable

    Rich Rebuilds channel in Youtube.. Great one for those who are interested in tesla rebuild projects. His first running tesla only cost him 6500usd and i think 6 months of time

    Tesla rated least reliable

    True that it's not reliable.. But the technology is amazing. The thrust you feel when it accelerates is out of this world. I have been in a p100d 2 weeks ago and I loved it at the same time hate it for being electric... and its cool to see one silently floating by! Their customer service is so good that they give higher model loaner cars to those who are having problems - with their car and is being serviced. (you could have a used 85d and still get a p100d from either model x or s. So you will be wishing for tesla taking their maximum time available to repair while enjoying their top end car xD based on reviews and what customers said) Meanwhile, the only manufacturer that doesn't give any support/info/parts for DIY repairs *big thumbs down* after watching this video, i have a new pov towards tesla as well
  7. only changed the AC delco battery once in the qashqai.. All other times, got lucky as it dies within the warranty period.. 2nd last time it died 3 days before the warranty ends! therefore I love AC Delco x)
  8. plate has the name xD

    Renault Duster hard steering issue

    car's steering getting a bit tougher is normal wear and tear, right? I can experience a clear difference when the car used to be new and as of now... @Barry in this case what all to look for to bring it back to a smooth and soft feel?

    New old cars

    To add to the list, Maruti Suzuki Omni (1984-present) and Gypsy (1985-present) in India Both of them are very popular cars there and still in production. Gypsy in India is like the G class in UAE. also the Jimny!? though it got like a facelift recently HM Ambassador's production stopped in 2014

    New old cars

    I think you meant the G-class in general? G55 was around for only 9 years... Also, it got a facelift this year so I also think that doesn't count anymore!? It's always fun to watch those pickups in large delivery trucks on road... There's probably like 10-12 in a truck and there could be 2-3 trucks together. Will snap a picture next time when I see one for this thread
