Engine wash do not want!

KNN punya mobil ss14.

Due to the engine oil leaks yesterday, my mech asked me to go for an engine wash to clear off the oil.I headed to Mobil SS14(since it was the nearest place to have engine wash)I ask to the guy to wash only under the manifold where the engine oil leaks are. Little did I know, he went ahead and washed all the compartment.Ok, so I thought he knew what he was doing...wrapping the sensors and my open pod air filter.

Splash with chemical,soap yada yada, fine thats normal, after that he took out the wrappings and sprayed something onto my air filter i was like WTF?

After that he say siap, I asked again,"siap kah". He said yes, my car bonnet and fenders left with residues of soap(i think) and the engine bay isnt dry. HE DIDNT BLOODY WIPE OFF THE RESIDUES. I fired the up car and it started choking >_>.

Reminder to self: If I ever need to wash my engine, I'll do it myself. As for car wash, I'll still patronize the place.

Sabotaged or Half-assed job?

A few days ago, i noticed there were engine oil leaks coming from my engine and onto the floor. I set an appointment with my mech and headed to his place today.

First thing he saw when he popped up the bonnet, he was like "woah, massive spills". I was like "omg, will that cost alot? x_x". He proceeded to plug out the sensors and unscrewed the engine head cover. He asked me whether the engine was tampered before. I was thinking,"tampered? why?". Then to my surprise, ALL of the screws on the engine head cover were loose.


To make things worse, when he flipped the engine cover, he asked me again,"Gasket sealant very expensive issit?". I blur blur reply,"issit?". He told me there wasnt any gasket sealant present, hence suspected leaking due to two of the reasons above.


He took out a bottle of gasket sealent." This is how you APPLY gasket sealant" and he repeatedly spreaded the sealant. His friend helped him to dry the engine cover and then added back the rubber gasket with added sealant.

Luckily the repair costed peanuts.

Then he fired up my car. His friend noticed something in my muffler. I was like wtf?? something in my muffler!?. Darn, seems the hatred for big muffler has come to me >_>. Will probably be changing to an s-flow muffler soon.

On the side note, the weather was funny today. It rained for like 2 minutes, stopped and rained again. Rinse,wash,repeat. The other mechs doing up an EG6 was like *toot* *toot*

No ma, its not an iPod >_>

As you know there's ALOT of iPod Nano clones out there, they look "quite" similar to the real thing. But there's one thing that seperates them; thats the name of the rebranded iPod. We had names like iPox, now introducting to you....

- Picture belongs to a Lowyat.Net forumer

It's an iPoo yoo! Granted, its probably labeled iPod(due to the glare you cant see the d). One thing though, its 4gb of goodness, and how much does it cost? only rm300. Go get yours now and show those iPod Nanos whos boss xD

How old am I?

You Are 20 Years Old

Under 12: You are a kid at heart. You still have an optimistic life view - and you look at the world with awe.

13-19: You are a teenager at heart. You question authority and are still trying to find your place in this world.

20-29: You are a twentysomething at heart. You feel excited about what's to come... love, work, and new experiences.

30-39: You are a thirtysomething at heart. You've had a taste of success and true love, but you want more!

40+: You are a mature adult. You've been through most of the ups and downs of life already. Now you get to sit back and relax.

Darn, am I really getting old?
