  1. I any day prefer buying my lube, filters or any additional spares required for timely maintenance and giving it in garage and getting work done in front of me.... not a trust issue but i like it that way... used to do in ENOC earlier cost is not that high but oil does not last very long.
  2. When to replace the coolant hoses

    Just if it helps anyone still in trouble with Honda civic, only and only and only take the original hoses on honda civic... the aftermarket will never last long

    Thanks to Carnity where there is forum like a family then just Business :).. I am sure we all can sometimes recommend each other here and there.
  4. True @Barry there comes knowledge and experience
  5. Hi All, Sure the problem was resolved for user.. but I have a x5 2006 model as well, other than a renault duster. I had this issue and for me it was funny fix did top up the gas with local shop which did not last more than a month. When I returned back to ac techs there disclaimer was to change the compressor as pressure was not correct and gas was still full . Compressor was intermediately working and cooling bleakly. I suspected it for some minor issue and refused to change the compressor without a through diagnosis. Eventually i ended with a ac tech in sharjah itself who said all that was needed was a genuine gas, so he vacuumed the old gas give some oil in the compressor(i have seen very few techs knowing this trick , i tried in Honda jazz before which lasted 4 years until i sold) refilled original gas... there you go its perfect now chilling like an ice I am not much knowledgeable about cars as many of you but for me to buy solution i need logic to it... most of the times we just buy the ideas of techs and repair parts and things which are really not required. We mostly buy pre owned cars and they are bound to have maintenance requirement after a period of time All the best for BMW users BMW indeed are ultimate driving machines... .dont give up and take a second opinion if in doubt for minor issues on your cars.

    Hi everyone, So this is what I did with a car and it works perfect now -Cleaned Injector they were not flushing petrol in uniformtiy - cleaned lambda sensor was also quite dirty problem unresolved - Computer showed throttle body errors cleaned it did not help changed it to a new one, did not help error was still the same so had to try another throttle body... this time it worked and misfire went off however, while throttle body was being fixed i was planning to check on gasket manifold leaks..... did a sealant ... Coz the problem was back i went to garage and got the sealant pasted nicely .... to my luck my car's performance is perfect now.. there were couple of issues - injectors -lambda sensor -throttle body -gasket manifold leaks Just in case this helps any one in future
  7. just top the power steering oil, thats the fix unless power-steering requires major repairs
  8. I had same issue 15 days back, all i had to do was refill the gas worked fine after that

    Thanks Barry, the thing is that i went to a couple of mechanics in al qusais and Sharjah all want me to leave the car with them over night to see the issue when car is cold. I dont get convinced because why do they need car to be cold for diagnosis when computer checks generally figures out regardless of temperature. i want diagnosis in front of me, else they will try something, obviously before the car is delivered it will kept on and nothing is wrong when car is hot ..... so next day i may end up having same issue ... I went to another guy who has a computer he doesnt mind running diagnostics but insisted that i should leave the car overnight and he will run test in morning. I am doubtful of o2 or mapping sensor voltages, lastly just a dirty throttle body funny thing by the time i reached home CEL was gone
  10. Hello All, I am a new user here, just registered was referred by Rahimdad. So here is the issue that I am facing with my car, every morning when i start the car it misfires until the temperature becomes adequate. I changed spark plugs twice, spark plug cables are ok as tested by mechanic. there was no engine light on dashboard until today morning when trying to check vacuum for air suction, while checking if there is air suction happening properly check engine light came on. No computer diagnostic were done so far as check engine light or any other light never showed on dashboard. Car runs perfect once temperature is fine . Also got cylinders tested with power loss which also is not there. I had doubts with o2 sensor or mapping sensor but mechanic just wants to try different stuff that I am not convince on. removed the mapping sensor and car switched off immediately, .... Please advise if anyone has any idea about the issue.
