    well, different story talaga ang 4m41 kasi may cat. converter. yung 2.5 kasi may housing, but empty, walang cat. converter. malaking factor din. plus known na smoke belcher talaga ang 4d56 but may mga things naman how to eliminate it eh

    Would highly appreciate any info (pros and cons, personal reviews and opinions) re the matter. Thanks!
    sir pa clear ng inbox. i can help you with race chips

    Hi mga sirs hingi lang ako ng recommendation. Mag 5k pms na ako this week and balak ko sana fully synthetic gamitin ( sa casa pa ako mag pa pms so oil pa nila gagamitin ko). Previously nung 1k pms ordinary oil ang pinalagay ko. Beneficial ba talaga kung fully synthetic ang gagamitin rather than ordinary oil. Thanks po

Try mo pa morning when you 1st start up your car, try to rev it up a few times pra ma ibuga yung mga soot na na ipon sa makina. Wag ka lang ma bigla dahil you'll see a lot of smoke when you do that
    Quite true though it doesn't hurt to switch fuels to Unioil, Eastern or Seaoil since they're cleaner fuels by virtue of being EURO 4 fuels. All others from what I know are of Euro 2 standard.

    From experience switching to Unioil from Shell (my car) and Petron (my Dad's), we both noticed that the car's emissions wasn't as pungent as before and we had better mileage and relatively better acceleration. The engines weren't as strained compared to when it was running Shell/Petron fuel and we'd cruise at 80-120kph on the highways at lower RPM's.

    My vehicle (a hilux) and my dad's (an innova) are well-maintained since my dad is a bit anal about the vehicle's PMS. Nevertheless, I think it served us well since these cars haven't had any major problems in the 8 1/2 years we've had them (we did, however, experience some engine issues during our first few months of ownership of our innova that was related to the fuel sensitivity of the crdi system which was solved by loading up at another Petron station that was on my Dad's daily route though he did learn to mix it up once in a while and loading up with Shell every so often). A relative also had a similar experience (he drives a Montero) since he usually loads up with Petron/Caltex until recently when my Dad shared his experience with Unioil. The only problem is that he has to go to the station along Osmena Highway which deviates from his daily route.

    Purging also helps since it clears out the exhaust system but don't be alarmed at the amount of soot you emit especially if it's your first time doing so.

    In any case, I'm sorry if I seem lost but I came here to see what the issues are (maintenance, common problems, good PMS Casa, etc...) with the Strada since we're looking to purchase a newer (and for my dad, a more maneuverable and comfortable) pick-up truck to compliment our trusty Hilux. While he doesn't mind driving the Hilux, he said it's become more difficult lately in parking and going through certain roads (Lumiliit daw mga kalye sa dami ng kotse, motorcycle at mga harang) especially here in the Metro. Hope my two cents adds to the discussion.

    A cheap deal is good but if its too cheap then there's something shady about that. Yung iba baka nalubog sa baha. As for the new model, parang wala pa namang umougong na may lalabas sa philippine market. Or baka late lang ako sa mga news
