Just to share my experience today...

Post  HonG on Sun Sep 19, 2010 5:04 am

This afternoon at around 4.30pm started my engine, suddenly felt the engine sounded weak and was like going to stall anytime and malfunction light shows up.

Tried to seek help by calling Borneo as my ride still under warranty but too bad they can't give immediate assistance to a helpless customer like me because they are preparing to call it a day and go home.

Got no choice and so I just open up my seats and look into the engine bay. To my surprise, found out that one of my injectors wire was broken. Called my mechanic (ah liu) and by the time is around 5pm liao. He is very helpful and ask me to try to drive my van to his workshop to have a look. Had a difficult time driving my van all the way because of lack of power... my van actually took more than 20 seconds to reach 50km/h but still manage to reach his workshop safely.

He had a check and found out that the wire was actually bitten off by maybe cockroaches or rats because of the torn pattern on the wires and seals. The is also a smelly stench in my engine bay, smells like a dead rat or something like that. Thankfully it is no difficult job for him by just replacing the wires and everything works normally again.

Pandan leaves can really help to keep roaches away. But don't think it can help the engine bay there. Unless u place the leaves at the bay.

try not to park ur ride where there is a dustbin nearby or a drain hole at the lot.
when washing ur ride, don't forget to clean up ur engine bay once in a while too by using engine degreaser n water.
