Engine Sensor issue in chevrolet optra 1.6

Recently i notice that the engine oil indicator on my chevrolet optra 1.6 light up when i was driving.. A quick check on the engine oil and water shows everything is normal..but another check on the engine sensor shows sign of engine oil leaking from the sensor.. If anyone get the same symptom go and have your sensor replace.

A normal workshop will charge you around rm140 including labor to change this engine sensor but the sensor itself only cost rm70

If anyone want to get cheap chevrolet optra parts..feel free to contact me via email :)

Stop those service center from charging you sky high price..

PJ Volcar Service Centre Sdn Bhd is Lousy....

I send my car to PJ Volcar in Jalan 222 for servicing. A major one which include top overhaul. After 3 months of usage the engine gasket is leaking ...and they claim they change the gasket for me again.. But after another 3 months when i do my normal car service in another workshop in glenmarie..shared auto services...i get a shock of my life.. The technician told me that the metal nut that hold the screw is missing. Please refer to the picture below..

I call PJ Volcar and complain but they seem to ignore me and claim that they will not honor this type of problem as they claim they have change the gasket seal once and if it leak again is not their problem. WTF...The root cause is because the stupid engineer in PJ Volcar lost the nut and when they tighten the screw on the engine top it break the gasket cover..

I would not recommend any Chevrolet car owner to goto PJ Volcar service center. Stay away from that service center at all cost...Yeah not to mention that their price is very high..i think they still charging sky high price base on official SC price list.. but aren;t they aware they are not the official SC for chevrolet car anymore!!

Just another thing to add..they used to be ok but once their trusted engineer and worker resign things start to get worst..

Please black list PJ Volcar Service Centre Sdn Bhd

Kuala Lumpur International Motor Show 2010

My recent visit to the Kuala Lumpur Internation Motor Show is lil dissapointed.. I feel that other major car brand like BMW, Mercedes, Toyota, etc is not really participating here as i dont see any concept cars from them.. However Proton and perodua booth is the boldest here...with their catchy Perodua Bezaa set to steal the limelight...

There are not many car accessory booth to the previous KLIM i think this one has the least number of booth selling accessories..or maybe it is just my feel..

As usual many photographer crowd this place to take advantage to improve their photography skill photographing ahemm models...

As usual i see lots of hardcore using all sort of device to capture the photo of the model ranging from Sony PSP with a cam, and camera from handphone..

In this visit i use Olympus E-P2 with panasonic Leica summilux 25mm f1.4 to try and capture the beauty with available lights..but sometime the light is just not enough that i resort to use the FL-50R flash..but 99% of the photo is shot with available lights..enjoy..

Howto secure your jailbreak Iphone 4

This is a guide to secure your iphone 4 if you ever jailbreak it..

Run Cydia and navigate through / Manage/ Sources/ Edit/ select Add

Use cydia search to find and install the current beta Terminal for iOS4 (just search for terminal as only 2 download options appeared on mine and the ios4 compatible terminal is clearly marked)

Hit the home button on your phone and run terminal (note that passwords and commands below are shown with quotes. do NOT enter the quotes as they are solely to identify the relevant required input data)

Type in “su root” and hit RETURN.

Type the root password “alpine” and hit RETURN.

You are now logged in as root. Type “passwd” and hit RETURN.

input a new password (dont do a short simple one) and hit RETURN. You won’t see anything being entered on the terminal screen during password entries so pay attention to what you are typing on the keypad.

the iPhone will now ask you to retype the new password, so type in your newly created password and hit RETURN.

Type Exit

Respring and thats it for the root password.

Dont forget to change your mobile$ password as well while you are here. It is done almost exactly the same as the root apart from one difference.

Run Terminal and you will see it says mobile$ on screen and is waiting for a command.

Type “passwd” and touch RETURN. You will be prompted for the original default mobile “alpine” password here so enter it and hit RETURN

input a new password (for ease of use use the same new password you used for the root password) and hit RETURN. (as before, you won’t see anything during password entries so pay attention to what you are typing on the keypad).

it will now prompt you to retype the new password, so type in your new password and hit RETURN. (Nothing is shown to say it has worked here, the software only gives you a message if your confirmation password entry fails to match the new password just entered

Type Exit

Respring and thats it, Job done and both passwords changed.
