    you could be right on that bro, a big possibility.

    my mechanic said he can fix it and no need to change engine.
    parts are readily available for this car.
    All i need daw is to prepare the 'budget'

    It is testament to the durability of this car that it is still running at all.

    IMHO oil change for your car will not be very expensive since 1.3 lang and will not require lots of oil. Even the cheapest variety will suffice. Matatagalan pa lalo ang survival ng sasakyan mo, and therefore also time to save up, before overhaul becomes inevitable.

    Have an oil change na muna. Sobrang tagal na 5 years. 4liters lang naman ata yan or 3.5ltrs. Less than P200 per liter na multigrade pwede na. Tsaka oil filter mo rin at air filter palitan.

    Ramdam mo ang difference ng takbo niyan for sure.

    yes, 3.5liters. thanks for additional info. bro! I will have the engine oil changed today to prolong engine life while saving for overhaul expenses.
    fyi, havn't been using air filter sa carb nito. ceased from using it 10 years ago for fuel economy, no bad effect sa carb. city driving lng nmn and minimum road dust. planning on using air filter again after overhaul.

    Sorry mga Bro! now, i realised na masyado ko atang tinipid ang ride ko for daily commute.
    I am now enlightened. Thanks for all the feedback and comments

    Toyota should probably pick up your story to advertise how sturdy their engines can be!

    In our 1997 Granvia, I have had lots of work done on the A/C system (general cleaning, replaced cooling coil, compressor overhaul, and repairs on the control module), brake system (replaced rear drum assembly and brake master cylinder) and suspension (replaced steering rack, front upper and lower arms, shocks, stabilizer links, tie rod ends and rear coil springs). Lately I have been hearing a loud groan sometimes when full-on turning upon heavy throttle or aslant on an incline which I suspect may be one of the stab links failing again.

    At 22 years/180tkms, this is currently our oldest and thirstiest (4-5 city 8-9 highway) vehicle. However the engine and transmission have never failed us, and pulls strongly even by today's standards. After the major works mostly done immediately after acquisition in 2016, it also turned out to be the cheapest to maintain. Total maintenance cost last 2018 turned out less than 20k, a mere fraction of the Santa Fe and Carnival's.
