    1. Speed sensor and gear is now defective. Its located under the transmission housing. May you happen to know where can I buy one outside casa? What brand?
    2. Fuel filter is quite expensive in casa at around 3k. Any brand to use other than OEM? What's the difference why OEM is so expensive?
    3. How about the serpentine belt? What brand other than Toyota OEM?


    Thanks in advance!

    My question is, is your car still under warranty. If it is still under warranty DO NOT REPLACE any parts with a replacement one or else this will void your warranty even though you just replace one part of your car.

    If its not under warranty then for Serpentine Belt, either buy Bando, Mitsuboshi, or Gates.
    Fuel Filter then VIC & Nippon Micro - Japanese brand after market filters, Toyota is more expensive due to it has better quality in filtering foreign objects.

    For sensors, I know NGK/NTK pero it is not readily available in auto supply retalier, because 1st of all hindi naman siya masirain so talaga hindi sila magstostock nun, they will need to order from the supplier 1st. You can try to order from Toyosco, Lucky 2, Toyorama, THK, Share, Tach Motion, and Denso Araneta - I mention this auto supplies because this auto supplies are specialist for Toyota and they are directly ordering from Importers.

    Oh forgot to mention Denso brand also for the sensors

    Hindi po same brand ang made in Thailand and made in Japan, magkaiba po ang factories na pinagkukuhaan nila. Mas strict ang quality policy sa Japan kesa sa Thailand, mapapansin mo ang Thailand ay para din China, Taiwan, Malaysia and Indonesia, meron nagproproduce ng low quality products at meron din nagproproduce ng high quality products depende ang QUALITY sa binabayad sa kanila ng Company na bumibili sa kanya. Ang difference naman sa Japan is hindi sila pumapayag na bayaran ng mababa para sacrifice sa quality, kung ano price ng products nila yun na yun dahil strictly maintaining yung quality nila dahil sa Japan sobra strict ng ISO ratings, hindi gaya sa ibang bansa, chaka ayaw nila masira pangalan nila after nila idevelop yung bansa nila na quality first.

    About sa filters, Sinagot ko lang tanong ng isang tsikoteer

    About sa steering parts ng Sankei 555, although replacement parts lang ito. Okay naman quality niya.
    Sa GMB cross joints, replacement lang din, made in Japan and made in Thailand yung iba
    Sa GMB Tie rod end, ball joint and stabilizer link replacement lang din ang GMB, made in Thailand lang.
    Meron isang brand pa sa Japan, pangalan "SAFETY" suspension parts, dati meron yan dito sa Philippines kaso siyempre alam naman natin lahat na dalawang klase ang Pinoy either brand loyal or yung tipong gusto mura.

    may statistics or data ka ba to support this claim?

    dati kasi sa isang japanese R&D company ako nag-tra-trabaho dito sa pinas. at least dun sa company na yun, kung anong standards ang sinusunod nung mga amo/customer naming Hapon, yun rin ang sinusunod namin. at hindi basehan ang sweldo para masabing mas mataas ang quality kasi di hamak naman na mas maliit ang sweldo namin kumpara sa kanila pero same quality standards ang sinusunod namin. sa camera and printer industry nga pala ung dati kong company.

    i'm assuming same practice lang ang sinusunod ng japanese automotive industry kapag naka-outsource na ang assembly&production nila kasi as a nation they take pride in the high quality of their products & services. kapag nagkaroon ng quality issue sa product nila, regardless kung saan ginawa yan, eh sila pa rin ang mapapahiya. based sa experience ko, hindi nila ibibigay ung trabaho sa iba kung alam nilang hindi masusunod ang quality na gusto nila.
