Nissan Almera N17 [ Periodic Maintenance Service ]

 Dear Readers, 

Ever since we are stuck at our home during this pandemic and without many services being able to operate/open, the car tend do grow dust and mold without driving much. Don't leave it as it is, make sure even if you're not going anywhere or out, keep the engine start at least once every 3 days to keep the battery in a good and proper condition.

This round, I'm bringing the car to service and get it some periodic maintenance and checkups.

Get the car hoist up and release all the unwanted residue and contamination before putting in the new engine oil/ atf oil and etc.

This round of service, what has been done:
- Putting in 5W40 Brand Aisin [Japan] Fully Synthetic Engine Oil
- Oil Filter replacement [Must be done every service]
- Air Filter replacement [ clog and dirty, replace it ]
- ATF Oil [ Matic S ATF Oil ] from Nissan, Tan Chong
- Service Brake system (checking and replacing the worn out)

Aisin 5W40 Fully Synthetic Engine Oil [ Japan ]

Matic S ATF oil from Nissan, Tan Chong

After getting everything drained out. Time to fill in the new oils for the engine and the transmission.

Feel superb after the periodic maintenance. The car seems to react without delay and being responsive and definitely some fuel efficient can be notice after awhile of driving of at least 200 km distance and above.

Perodua Myvi 1.3 EZi (2012) - Car Wash Time

 Dear Readers,

Just another hot weekend before the CNY (Chinese New Year) arrives. After government/Mkn/Kkm announced that Car Wash/Detailing are able to operate. This is the people (Majority Chinese) get their car wash before the CNY as having a clean car is like having a clean house. 

Keeping it clean is just an OCD to some but to me, it's a definitely Yes, Must be clean. 

Below are some shots of the car getting a wash.

Perodua Myvi 1.3L EZi (2012) Model - Engine Bay

 Dear Readers, 

Back again with the engine shots. This time, it would be the 2012 Perodua Myvi 1.3L EZi Model. So this car has been around for almost 9 years (in few months time). 

This is how I keep the engine clean by just spending some time quarterly of a year / 2 months a year to do some cleaning and conditioning.

Check out below for the Engine Bay shots.

Close Up Shot

Overall Engine Bay Shot

The car is properly maintain and the reason the engine bay still looks good/clean is because the fussy owner has some OCD with cleanliness not only the exterior/interior of the car but to engine bay area too as the composite, tarmac, carbons, dust will make it dull.

Just a normal practice from the owner when has some spare time. Take a microfibre cloth with a minimal amount of soup with pail, Wipe it manually. This method is workable for weekly/monthly/quarterly cleaning as it will be hard for more than 3 years old onwards vehicle as the stubborn deposit/dust/carbons will build up.

What's a good thing when you see a clean engine bay. To the owner's point of view:

- It build respect in the automotive sector/event whereby you will somehow display the engine bay by popping the hood and let others admire. 
- This does not neglect that it will also let you notice wherever there's a leakage/faulty parts easily whereby it is visible 
- Battery terminals do build up an oxidize layer/some may look white/ ice blue. Frequent removing it manually by own will brings up the battery lifespan longer than the normal once as it gives the continuous conductivity/ connectivity towards the charging/discharging.

That's all for now.

Dear Readers, 

It's been sometime since the last update which is on the Latest Nissan Almera Turbo N18 that comes on sale in Malaysia. 

This post is still for the Nissan Almera 1.5VL N17. This time the Nissan Almera N17 is clocking a 5 Years 7 months Old Engine Bay Shot. 

How to keep it this way ?

Plain simple, just need some effort and spare time of your own. 

High Cost? - No, Just need a bucket of Clean water, Soap Water, and 2 Microfiber Cloths. Take note, there's No pressure gun or water sprayed to the engine bay.

Time - Every session of cleaning it will takes around 15 mins , duration of session once a month.

By doing the above steps, this is the result/ outcome. It may not be sparkling clean but it is somehow presentable to 70% of the crowd. 

Enjoy the shots below:
