    i know the feeling..
    but i didn't cry when the guy drove my 14 year old sentra away.. i sat for a while, looking at the empty garage.. then i rushed to the store to get something to park in it!

    Kasi loves mo grabe car mo at ayaw mo magasgasan kahit konti. Kung nagkataon nasagi car mo, kawawa sa iyo yung nakasaging driver sigurado.

    call me old-fashioned but i prefer carbs. napakadali kasing ayusin. lesser electricals, walang sensors. pag 10-year old cars, expect wear and tear problems. pag may problema sa carb engine, either electrical or carb. ganun lang, whereas sa efi, maraming possibilities sa problema. just my piece..

    there is a problem, sir.
    most backyards, front yards, and home garages do not have the gadget that connects to the diagnostic port.
    many "mechanics" do not even know what a diagnostic port is!

    and this same fear of the unknown.. going to that hi-tech garage for repair is out of the question! "..mahal doon! at baka lokohin lang ako..! kay mang kepweng na lang.. kababata siya ni itay.. hindi ako lolokohin niyon.."
    Yup pero internet age na tayo ngayon, yung mga solution sa auto na sa casa at sinesikreto lang ng casa paano gawin pwede mo na makuha sa internet. Lalo na sa corolla na more than 20 years na existing ang EFI engine. Kinaganda ng 4afe engine, metal hairpin lang kailangan mo, to short on diagnostic port and research mo na lang sa google ano interpretation ng pag blink ng check engine light sa panel gauge. No need for a laptop or computer program. Yung laptop pang internet research mo na lang.

    it is not illegal to learn. the power of the internet make a few idiots smart. the information about cars ten years or older are usually found in the internet. if not, write to this forum or check with international automotive technician's network (iATN.com)
