    Thanks sa reply mo! So far ok pa naman ang pina injection ko na tierods from Zee carplus (nung 19 Aug 2009). Pareho nga kayo ni Oceanrider 88 na nag reccomend nang 555 for tierods.

    Ngayon bagong problema. Kailangan ko na palitan ang rear suspension struts ko, pero yung presyo P3500 / pc. ang mahal! Nagpalit na ako dati at di naman tumagal. So nag pa injection na lang ako sa zee carplus (matigas lang nga, pero ang laki nang mura). Anyway nabaluktot kasi ang spring seat sa rear left suspension strut, so tumatama ang buong suspension strut sa inner fender well, so siyempre may tunog kahit maliit na butas lang.

    Since ang tigas nung right side strut (injected) at malambot ang stock strut, ay napipilitan ako palitan pareho.

    Meroon pa kayang ibang mas mura na suspension strut na kakasya sa esteem? Thanks!

    KYB Excel G yung ipinalit ko, less than PHP12k yung apat. Kasama na yung rubber sa seat nun. Napansin ko lang, malaki kasi shocks natin kaya mahal.

    P800-P1.2K lang ang surplus struts ng esteem sa evangelista at Banawe. Hanap ka lang. Matitino pa naman yung mga surplus. Kung hindi mo nagustuhan, baik mo palitan nila ulit libre.

    I have some quick questions re Suzuki parts and service:

    Can you recommend a non-casa shop that specializes in Suzuki repairs? I have a 1997 Esteem that needs some work done.

    What surplus shops can you recommend that have a lot of Suzuki parts? Or maybe a shop that has the most number of Suzuki parts available? I'm looking for a driver's side door, kasi I think the last owner of my car had an accident and the door isn't "straight" and I'm thinking of changing the door na lang.

    How much will it cost to replace a manual transmission with an automatic transmission in good condition? Meron ba nito sa surplus shops? How much kaya to buy, fix and install one?

    I'm looking for that panel that cover the bottom of the engine bay (not sure what that part is called)? Meron ba nito sa surplus shops?

    Zee claims to recondition shocks. Ok na to have this done? Is it really as good as new?

    Can you find interior parts in surplus shops?

    Hello!

    I have a Suzuki Esteem 1998 AT. (hand me down car from my cousin)

    My cousin's mechanic said that transmission needs to be replaced. It would cost around 28k daw.

    The car is working naman, I can take short drives around Binan, Laguna. The mechanic said that it cannot manage long drives daw kasi baka tumirik. Kaya we haven't tried taking it outside Binan for now.

    Now the question, where can I bring the car for a second opinion? Preferably in the South Area lang (due to the limitation of the car) sana. Or if wala talagang expert here in Binan, should I risk bringin it to Suzuki Alabang for a diagnosis?

    I called up Suzuki in Pasig, diagnosis would cost me Php784 lang. Then if the transmission is really the problem, they would order it from Japan pa.

    I looked over the web, a used transmission from the US would cost around US$530. I'm tempted na to order on-line if a reliable mechanic would suggest this.

    I hope someone could help me on this.

    Thanks guys!

    Palitan mo muna transmission Fluid. UsuaLly yun nag mga problem ng kahit anong automatic na auto Kahit anong brand man yun Honda Toyota or mitsu. Try castrol atf for the oil and change the transmission filter na rin. Kung Hindi mag work palitan mo na bung tranny mura Lang naman yun sa banawe baka makuha mo less than p20k Lang. Drain mo yung bago mo linagay na ATF at lipat mo dun sa surplus na tranny na mabili mo and transplant the new filter.

    Good luck

Though I think mas mura ang Esteem, the spacewagon has additional space for 2 at the back. What do you guys think? Kung marami naman palang parts ng Esteem from these shops I think it's a good buy

    Pag orig yung timing belt na ikakabit ko, mga 80k kms bago ako magpalit uli. If replacement nasa 60k kms lang.

    OEM timing belt natin nasa P3k plus. OEM Honda timing belt yung last na ginamit ko. Nasa P1.5k lang sya. Medyo mas malapad lang yung sa Suzuki timing belt ng ilang millimeters pero parehas lang kapal at ipin. Pag nagpalit ka ng timing belt idamay mo na cam/crank seal (P500) at tensioner bearing (P650). If may budget ka, isama mo na water pump para isang labor na lang. Nasa P1.3k lang water pump.

    Sa Piyeza along Zapote ako nagpapalit. Nasa P1.2k lang labor nila. Since di sila umorder ng parts, I'm guessing na di ka naman mahihirapang maghanap. Malamang meron sila sa suking talyer at auto parts mo.

    HTH!

    Hi PatT,

    I think we've met last week sa Olympia. Nagbabakasakali ako sa surplus throttle body assembly. Unfortunately, palyado yung dalawang surplus na available. Akala ko nga foreigner ka, hehehe. Anyway, hope to see you again sa mga EBs either ng CSP or Tsikot mismo.

    Macky
