    nga pala, as experience: medyo mataas pa fuel consumption ng sasakyan hanggang mag-set na yung valves sa head...

    bagong top-overhaul liteace ko 5-7 lang, now 7-10km/L na..

    Dont forget to re check the valve/rocker arm clearance on your next oil change para sure na seated na siya ng mabuti.

    If possible double check all head bolts kung may nag loosen or failed. Never do this if engine is hot!

    Did your mechanic use the right torque, sequence, type (angular or plain torque) or followed the 1st 2nd and final sequence (if appllicable). This I believe is the most critical factor in a top overhaul, doing it right the first time according to the OEM specs.

    yup yung ang pinaka importante sa top overhaul:

    torque and bolt torquing sequence..dapt pantay na pantay to prevent leakage..

    ang iba lang sa 2c-t is machine shop lang pwede mang-adjust ng valve clearance, unlike most engines na may adjustment screw ang mga tappets...

    My old 93 Corolla GLi has undergone a top overhaul. Will get it today. How can I assess the mechanic is doing a good job at it?

    Tol tanong ko lang kung kilala mo ba talaga ang mechanic at trusted mo .Mahirap din kasing maloko kagaya ni VIEPINK. Una ano ba ang mga pinabili sa iyong piyesa sa top overhaul . Kung nagpabili ng piyesa na hindi naman gagamitin sa top overhaul magduda ka na . SA gawa naman ng mekaniko mo nakasalalay ang magandang takbo ng makina mo . May mga mekaniko magawa lang kumita ayos na sa kanila . Iyong valve kadalasan problema ilalapat maigi iyan tawag asinta barula ,kung hindi masyadong nakalapat magkakaroon ng singaw at hindi maganda sunog ng spark plug at medyo palyado rin makina o magkakaroon ng loss compression dahil may singaw barbula. Ngayon makukuha mo na kotse mo . Tignan mong maigi ang andar niya dapat pino at tahimik . Tignan mo rin ang sunog ng apat na spark plug .Pag maitim at macarbon o basa hindi maganda ang pagkaka overhaul ng makina. Iyon muna obserbahan mo dahil palambutin pa iyan kailangan nalumapat ng husto ang barbula. Paandarin mo lang lagi at huwag mo munang i rev ng malakas.

    Thanks SU for the earnest reply. Certainly appreciate it.

    This is the first time i do business with this mechanic as I was referred only from someone I know. From the looks of it mukhang matino naman. But it would be nice to check if he is going a helluva job. Engine mechanicals is something familiar offhand for me but nothing in-depth.
