    Where is the best service center for our Kia?

    Alin sa mga service center ang may computer na may-access sa ECU?

    Sana gawing Sticky thread ito. Will be posting the 50k PMS of my Carens soon...

    Based on previous checkups (and speaking from personal experience), Kia Dagupan and Kia Pasong Tamo Ext had computer access to the ECU.. Yung sa Kia Pasong Tamo naman, I had to wait for 2 hours because the technician's (who was carrying the laptop with the diagnostic software) motorcycle encountered mechanical trouble..

    Since out of warranty na carnival ko, bumili na lang ako ng parts outside casa pero service sa kia pasay pa din.. Ok dun.. mabilis ang service tapos makakakita ka pa minsan ng mga muscle cars.. kasi yung owner dun, expertise nya mga lumang muscle car.. So once in a while, may makikita ka dun na mustang and camaro...

    ang alam ko medyo mahigpit si kia sa oil na ginagamit.. Ayaw nila ng synthetic... better follow na lang habang warranty.. Pero sa mga filters, hindi naman ata sila mahigpit, as long as original ang dala mo.. May kia clinic kasi sila every year and may mga free items, so yun na lang ang dinala ko...

    Naka attend ka na ba ng kia clinic? may mga free items sila binigay, tulad ng oil filter, air filter, aircon cabin filter and wipers.

    ^ Di pa. Ngayon palang kami bumili ng Kia kasi lately lang nagkaroon ng Kia na appealing

    Anyway, ang weird nila about sa oil. Kasi kapag semi / fully synthetic mas ok kasi low viscosity tsaka mas matipid sa gas. Masyado kasi mataas viscosity ng mineral oil kaya medyo mabigat ang takbo ng engine.

    Ride: Kia Carens CRDi 08 MT
    Serviced at Kia Dagupan (Laus Group)
    Duration: 2 hours (actually, 1.5 hours talaga- quite fast but not the kind of speed I expected)

    Breakdown of costs:

    Labor (for gen checkup, change oil & filter): 1,500
    oil filter : 650
    DIP Washer : 40
    Brake Cleaner : 400
    Penetrant : 200
    W/N screen cleaner : 150
    6 Liters semi synthetic oil : 2,130
    misc : 300
    Total: Php 5,370 (less 5%) = Php 5,102

    Issues:

    Hindi na nacheckup thoroughly ang EGR when I specifically asked it. Sabi naman ng SA kukulangin na daw sila ng time dahil matagal daw tanggalin yon. Tinest drive na lang ng Kia mechanic dun with me in tow (ran the car at 4th gear *140 kph) and said there was nothing wrong with the EGR.

    He told me that a constant emission of black smoke from the pipe is a sure sign of a dirty EGR. Mine had none. Again, he emphasized that the cause of low power of some units is the quality of diesel.

    The PMS duration was unusually fast - 1.5 hours to be exact. I can wait a little longer provided a thorough check was really done

    I forgot to ask what the misc fee of 300 was all about.

    -------

    Sorry napahaba itong post dahil in add ko na lang pic ng receipt for validation purposes because I cannot read or understand some items there (i.e. penetrant nga ba yon - at ano kaya ito?)

    Sir diba dapat nililinis yung EGR sa 40,000km PMS?

    Yun kasi nabasa ko sa SFCP, kahit walang mali sa EGR dapat nililinis every 40,000km kasi may effect parin talaga yun sa takbo ng engine.
