    tinext pa ko nung may ari, tinatanong kung ok nman daw radiator ko after ng cleaning, di nga ako nag-reply!

    Oh man, naloko ka nga! With that price it is definitely an overhaul.
    Flushing na nga lang di pa pinaandar yung engine

    If you have only flushing then you would only pay for the coolant that'll be replaced on your radiator + tip sa gagawa, that may only cost around half of that depende pa sa coolant yan.

    oo nga eh, badtrip. kaya hinding hindi na ko pupunta jan sa Denso jan sa may Autocamp sa may Pasig! chineck nga nila AC ko, sabi kailangan na daw linisin, agad agad daw kasi anytime daw baka masira na AC ko! 6000 plus! eh smantalang nabasa ko dito, 1000 lang sa MArio Reyes, revo pa yun ha!

    Ang hirap kasi talaga kapag babae ka, take advantage talaga sila. lagi na lang ako naloloko, tapos syempre, first time ko din talaga at wala akong mapagtanungan dito lang ako sa tsikot may nalalaman. so ngayon pa lang ako medyo natututo..

    kaya ngayon, panay ang basa ko. mas gusto ko pa nga mag tsikot.com kesa friendster eh! hehehe!

    Sorry kung medyo OT.

    Since newbie ka sa cars, may i suggest you enroll sa basic car maintenance ng MFI. http://www.mfi.org.ph/ You wil learn a lot. Also keep on reading this forum.

    As for trustworthy shops, mahirap talagang makahanap. There is a thread here about reccomended shops. Check it out. Speedyfix is also highly reccomended.

    Also before going to those dishonest mechanics, dont hesitate to contact some members ask question what you expect or what need to be done. In that case, you know what to say before they do something in your car. Knowledge is power...

    Radiator Overhaul tinatangal yung radiator from the engine bay, top and bottom covers are removed... using a cleaning stick each tube will be cleaned manually together with running water... assuming na copper type yung radiator but if plastic / aluminum pagka alam ko eh hindi pwede i-overhaul flushing lang

    Radiator flush is using chemicals to flush out dirt and other unwanted formations inside your cooling system the chemical is poured in the radiator then run the engine for a few minutes then will be drained, then change new water preferably DISTILLED WATER.. some shops now have "Radiator Cleaning Machines" the hose is connected in between the radiator and the engine where the chemical will be re-circulated by the machine... that could be the reason why there is no need for turning on the engine during the cleaning process..
