    Mga bossing,

    I am planning to have a complete machine overhaul (tama ba yon term?)of my 1995 TD42 (Nissan Safari). I wish to restore my vehicle to its original specs. Kindly recommend a shop located in QC. May I also know how much will I spend.

    Mukhang interesting ang project mo sir! I have some suggestions.

    1. It is very important that you get a technical manual of your vehicle. So you can measure and determine the service limits of your engine components

    2. If your engine is not yet blow by and no unusual noise is heard yet I suggest you re schedule your project until this signs are present.

    3. You can canvass usual culprits like cylinder liner/sleeve, piston ring set, valves, valve guides, valve seats, valve seals, main bearing, oil seals and conrod bushing.

    4. Have you done a top overhaul?

    Doing unecessary work on an engine can just open up a can of worms.

    big engines like the safari, basta well taken cared of will last up to 300k above kilometers.

    tama mga suggestion dito, if it does not show any signs of a broken engine better keep it that way lang. know somebody before he sold his safari na pina overhaul to the tune of 80k daw inabot. ewan ko lang kung ano=ano pinalitan at saan pinagawa.

    Salamat sa mga inputs mga bossing.

    Gusto ko lang ibalik sa original specs. Wala naman nararamdaman yon aking sasakyan na "sakit." Nagpa-top-overhaul na ako late last year (1st week of November, 2005).

    Susundin ko po mga payo niyo. "If it aint broke, don't fix it" (tama ba?).
