Im just wondering why cnc doesnt use Total for engine oil. Is it because shell helix ultra is better? or more suitable for local driving? Still considering which engine oil to use.

Shell and Mobil are much easily available? Haven't seen Total oil in Singapore.

Finally sent my car to Thomson workshop today for timing belt, engine mount (1pc), front rotor and front brake pads. Everything seems ok except that the response of my accelerator was different compared to before. Previously I just step lightly and can reach 100km/h easily. Now I need to step deeper. Is it normal upon timing belt change. I dun recall such issue with my previous ride upon belt change.

Below are the breakdowns:
Timing belt-250
Waterpump-100
Coolant-36
Engine mount-180
Front rotor-200
Front pad-90
Labour-180 (140+40)

I forgot to ask whether those steering belt, alternator belt etc were included in the timing belt set.

The labour cost seems very very cheap for a timing belt change.

The labour looked cheap but in fact, the workshop already made a tidy profit on the spare parts. Previously I checked with kian hua stockist n the brake pad (oem) cost max $75 but today the workshop charged $90 (oem).

Just sent for 60k servicing at tamp. Total 400+. Just a qn , is there a way to chk atf or gearbox oil level? Checked w cnc that they used the same transmission oil but the amt is 1litre short (cnc said 4l). Is it due to the amt nt fully drained out ?

Bro, besides oil change, what had been done? Just curious about the 400+ includes what?

Hi,
I am new to this forum, but have been driving C4 Grand for 3 years, mileage around 33k km only. I have serviced my car about 6 or 7 times already, and C&C keeps recommending me to replace my timing belt.

Is it too early for replacement? Can I do manual inspection on the timing belt? How?

Thanks!
