  1. Whistling car

    The whistling could be wind coming around a window or door that stops when you pressurize the interior with the A/C blower. Does it also stop when you turn off the A/C and turn up the heater blower?
  2. I thought people said Toyota cars are more reliable than Honda cars.. well, here's something I think you all should read...   An increasing number of Toyotas are experiencing excessive oil consumption and the 2007 Camry seems to be leading the charge.. Owners are reporting that their engines are deprived of oil halfway through their maintenance schedules and in some cases the damage is so bad that entirely new engines need to be installed, paid out of pocket. The issue may be a result of defective piston rings and is the possible target of a class-action lawsuit. Toyota has issued a TSB for this problem, but maintains their stance that vehicles equipped with a 2AZ-FE engine are burning through a “normal” amount of oil. source:   so guys I suggest you leave Honda alone oh

  10. Toyota VS Honda

    Honda cars are a bit more stylish than Toyota cars, moves faster, and more fun to drive. But I noticed that Honda parts are more expensive than Toyota.

    its most likely going to be your drive shafts.. ask your mechanic to confirm. @bimsy
  13. I think I agree with @obey...honesty is key here. educated or uneducated.. you will be shocked at the level of knowledge the uneducated ones possess. I also think its about knowing and understanding  your job well as either an educated or uneducated mechanic.

    From my observation and personal experience, these problems usually start from a gearbox oil change that was recommended by the mechanic who then uses the wrong type of ATF oil for the transmission. Most car manufacturers develop their own ATF formular to suit the cars they've produced. Honda recommends  ATF-z1 for their gearboxes manufactured between 1998 to 2009 and then upgraded to the ATF-Dw1 for gearboxes manufactured from 2010 upwards. For Toyota brands, the Type 4 ATF for their cars manufactured between1996 to 2007 and the Toyota WS ATF for ones manufactured between 2007 to present. I advice you tell your friend to take her car to a professional mechanic and ask them to change her ATF ASAP. Tell her to look                                             for COASTAL MULTI-VEHICLE SYNTHETIC would work just fine. contact Partboyz Auto Parts.
