    Ha?! Kahit Digital ODOMETER pwede na rin pala i-tamper? My brother bought a second hand altis 1.8G. 22+k lang mileage nito nung binili nya. But after 4 months 86+k na agad ang mileage nito and he didnt even went out of town on that car. sabi nya nag jump raw yung mileage nung mag 30k na mileage nya. instead of 30k it went to 40k then when it suppose to go 50k it went to 60k. lagi na dadag dagan ng 10k yung mileage nya then when he reach 100k it went back to 0k. Do u think my brothers ODOMETER is tampered?

    This is just my opinion...

    Most of the time I think if the odometer jumps its reading, it has definitely been tampered. An odometer isnt exactly a very complex device. Just like a water meter. Even our 23 year old car has an odometer that had never jumped a digit. Of course it is entirely possible that there is a problem with the odometer, but this is highly unlikely.

    Instead of just looking at the mileage, look at other indicators, how worn out is the steering wheel, seats, pedals, etc., Have the tires been replaced? How about the shocks? If yes, baka naman high mileage na yan na inayos lang. Sa pagkaka alam ko kasi shocks and tires would last more than the measly 30-40,000 kms.

    Speedo sensors are usually throw away items. They are rarely serviceable. Plugging a new one in on a Pajero is a 10 minute affair. The sensor itself cost close to Php5k at the dealer. Around Php2,500 in Banawe (BestColt).

    Hi Guys,

    Just had my 97 EL lancer checked sa casa ( Mitsu Cavite ) para ma-check yung odometer kung ano naging problema....Hindi ako satisfied sa nangyaring check-up.

    Bali tiningnan lang nung parang visor yung reading sa instrument panel and sinabi na malamang natampered na daw iyun ( alam agad ? ), Binuksan nila yung hood and sinilip lang yung makina at kung san nakakabit yung sensor ( sabi ko kasi na baka yung sensor yung may problema ), sinilip lang tapus sabi nya na hindi daw sila nagche-check ng ganun ( electrical system ) and kailangan daw na baklasin pa yung assembly dun pati yung sa instrument panel and kung anu-ano pa..tapus tinanong ko kung magkano aabutin kapag pinalitan yung sensor and odometer kung sakaling defective,,ang sabi e...di daw sila nagpapalit nuon?????? e kung hindi puede sa inyo e ....SAAN PA KAYA PUEDE???? ( CASA NA NGA SILA DI BA???? )...

    Medyo mahinahon lang ako and di nagpahalatang inis..tapus tinanong ko nalang kung kaya ba nilang ma-determine kung talaga bang 188k na yung mileage nun just by looking on the car itself ( 77k lang kasi mileage nun nung makuha ko, tapus biglang naging 188k after 2 months na 50 kms a week ave. travel, di naman ako bumibyahe ng pagudpud to allen samar araw-araw kaya talagang katakataka ..)

    Tapus di pala puede ma-check sa pc yung mileage kasi di siya EFI, so tanong ko nalang kung napalitan na ba yung timing belt para magkaalaman na ( dapat alam nila kung napalitan na yun diba )..so binuksan nila yung cover tapus sinilip lang and sabi dapat na daw palitan TB tapus binalik agad belt cover, nakita ko yung belt mukhang maayos pa naman, may konting langis lang yung gilid ng cover tapus sabi dapat ko na daw palitan agad ...

    Tinanong ko ulit ng mahinahon kung napalitan na ba yung TB and di na sumagot yung visor ...

    So in short...di din ako nakakuha ng sagot sa CASA na iyon...wala kinahantungan pagpunta namin dun...

    Plano ko na nga lang dalhin sa mga talagang marunong mag-check sa mga ganitong klaseng problema..yung may makukuha namang result and magandang suggestion di yung panay palit lang alam i-reccomend ..Wala bang Mang Mario na puedeng puntahan pagdating sa ganitong case??? May alam kaya kayong odometer specialist na puedeng pagpagawaan???

    Help ulit

    Thanks

    hehehe bro. mukhang minalas ka sa casa ah.
    for one, ang daling baklasin ng speedo assembly. had done it in less than 15 minutes.

    pangalawa. i would suggest that you try to consult other reputable shops for the timing belt. ang timing belt kasi, may look new, but in reality, nawawala na yung pagiging pliant and stretchability ng goma. also, there might be small cracks inside the belt which can affect the performance of the belt, and might cause big damage in the future. if you have time, try to bring it to speedyfix. (dito ata sa may crame ang shop nya diba?)

    pag nacheck na yung tb, then that will be the time you can validate if your speedo/odo has been tampered with. mas malaking issue yung TB eh. if it has been tampered with, then definitely, wala na tayong magagawa dyan. pag ok pa yung TB, then suspect a defective sensor, which you can deal with later.

    one more question. ngayon, pag tumatakbo ka, ano nangyayari sa ODO? tumatakbo naman sya ng maayos? nag rereflect ba ng correct distance or something?

    Madali lang alisin ang instrument cluster. I used to take them out of the company cars dun sa pinagtatrabahuan ni baiskee. Kinukuha ko kasi yung 'green condom' ng bulbs. hehehe. I know it's bad, hindi ko na ginagawa ngayon.

    Thanks sa reply.

    Yup, medyo minalas nga kami dun sa CASA na yun..

    Actually my plan was to replace na lang din ASAP yung TB para nga makasigurado, di ko nga masyado maitakbo yung sasakyan ng malayuan dahil nga sa condition nya..

    Gumagana naman yung odometer kapag ginagamit namin sasakyan, kahit yung trip meter ok naman ( Nai-seset ko pa sa zero yung Trip meter) ..pero di ko lang talaga sure kung calibrated pa yun, baka kasi may discrepancy na yung reading nya..

    Ask ko lang kung may mabibilhang digital odometer sa banaue? any ideas with regards to the cost? May nagpapalit kaya nun sa Banaue?

    Nakakairita lang kasing tingnan yung Metro lalo na't yung 188k mileage yung nakabungad agad ..

Tampered kaya Odometer ko???
