Re: 200Km Service - Suzuki APV

I believe you mean 200k km service. Your owners manual would be the authority on what needs to be done.
I would suggest also replacing timing belt, accessory belts and all water hoses. Ah mean ALL.

Re: 0W-40 Full synthetic engine oil

Re: The NZE Corolla Thread

Check a mechanic who offers diagnostic and repairs, as opposed to a scanner man.
You need a scan tool which can read the power steering system.

Re: Swift M16A upgrade to 4 coil pack

Ended up having to clean up the wiring due to a misfire. Take note, when joining copper wires to aluminum wires, make sure you have a healthy join. Aluminum wires are a pain. Driving impressions: 1. High rpm performance seems unchanged. 2. At low rpm, wow! I can idle the car in 1st gear at 400 rpm! ...

Re: Swift M16A upgrade to 4 coil pack

I initially purchased Toyota coils, but they couldn't fit. Nissan coils were thin enough to fit, but who wants unreliable coils in their car? Ended up going this kinda ugly way.

Swift M16A upgrade to 4 coil pack

Finally got around to this upgrade using LS2 coils and a custom bracket.
Wires are also LS2 wires. Just to get a grommet to keep water out of the spark plug holes.
Pulls clean to the 7500 rpm fuel cut.
