  • A BMW 640i came for Timing Gear Replacement

    Hi Everyone,

    The function of your BMW timing gears is to allow the camshaft and crankshaft to turn the timing chain. The pistons are moved up and down by the turning of the crankshaft which also allows the intake and exhaust valves on the cylinders to open and close. These components are important for optimum engine timing.

    As the piston moves downward, the intake valves open to allow fuel and air into the cylinders. As the piston moves upward, the exhaust valves open to expel exhaust air from the cylinders.

    If the intake valves are not functioning properly, the correct air/fuel mixture will be able to enter into the cylinders. If the exhaust valves are not opening and close properly, exhaust air will be trapped inside the cylinder.

    If the timing gears are failing, the valve timing and ignition timing will not be accurate. Noises from the engine compartment may occur, causing the engine to run rough, backfire or stalled.

    We hope you will enjoy viewing the following pictures.

  • A Volkwagen New Golf arrived to our workshop for ABS Pump issue

    Hi Everyone,

    We hope you will enjoy viewing the following pictures.


     

    Mr. Roshen came to Revol Carz Garage after he received a shocking quotation amounting to over $9,000 for resolving his car’s issues. He had sought our second opinion.

    As quoted by the dealer, there was a fault code of the anti-brake system failure and an auto transmission fluid leakage which needed an overhaul.

     

    At Revol Carz Garage, our diagnosis similarly concluded that it was indeed the anti-brake pump system failure and auto-transmission leakage.

    However, our sharp-eye and experienced technicians had also discovered the actual cause of the oil leak which thus saved the owner substantial sum of money. We managed to resolve the issue for substantially less than the overhaul rate quoted by others.

     

    The culprits were two broken fasteners. Broken fasteners are common occurrence of wear and tear overtime due to constant vibrations. Over tightening and using improper tools would also damage the threads.
     

    We are glad to be able to resolve Mr. Roshen’s car issues and most importantly saving him a huge sum of money of the cost compared to the quotation by other workshops.

    If you do encounter similar car issue, please feel free to contact us for a second opinion with a no obligation assessment. Our honest and accurate diagnosis could save you unnecessary overhaul and saving you the distress and money lost to unscrupulous workshops.
     

    Mr. Roshen’s Volkswagen, professionally repaired, washed, vacuumed and ready for collection.

  • A BMW X5 arrived for major circuit board modules damaged

    Hi Everyone,

    We have some advice for unwary car owners who could be unfortunately caught in an appalling situation after installing in-car camera.

    Don’t be “penny-wise and pound foolish”, so the adage goes. Have your in-car camera properly set up by professional installers from a more reputable shop.

    Inexperienced and carelessness of unscrupulous installers can cause you a nightmare and even damage to your car’s electronic system.

    We recently came across a case of BMW hatch-back which distressed owner phoned us for help. He was unable to start his car and had requested for a tow to our workshop for diagnosis.
    At our workshop, our experienced technicians discovered that water had seeped into the battery compartment causing short-circuits and severe damage to some major circuit board modules.

    This unfortunate incident could have been easily prevented had the camera-installer been more careful and had not forgotten to put back the protective cover properly.
    The carelessness by the inexperienced technicians had not only caused the car-owner great distress and inconvenience but also wasted a lot of money to replace the damaged circuit board modules.

    The rain water actually slip through the gap located at the car boot and flow into the battery compartment and it actually causes shock circuit of the module which indirectly causes other module to shock circuit too.

    We hope you will enjoy viewing the following pictures.

    Rain water flooded the battery compartment causing severe damages.
     

    A rusted and damaged HKL Circuit Board model was damaged by water seepage.
     

    The DME circuit board module was also damaged by water contamination.

    Preventive maintenance is always better than repair. It is important to understand about wear and tear before the components break down totally.

  • An Skoda Superb Elegance came for a full engine overhaul.

    Hi Everyone,

    Are you tired of the recurring mechanical problems that your car is experiencing every now and then? After you’ve fixed one mechanical problem, yet another one surfaces?

    The most common signs of an aging engine are high oil consumption and excessive white smoke in the exhaust, high fuel consumption, misfiring and compression loss. This is normally a sign of worn pistons.

    More extreme signs could be metal frictions in the engine (a common sign of worn bearings) and “knocking” or “chattering” from the engine bearings.

    Oil sludge and coolant in your oil pan is also an indication that engine is due for overhaul.

    If you see these signs, we recommend a complete engine overhaul to breathe new life into your car.

    Rebuilding your car engine can benefit you in the long run if the work is done properly by skilled mechanics.

    We hope you will enjoy viewing the following pictures.

  • A BMW 523i had issue related to auto transmission oil cooler

    Hi Everyone,

    An estimate of 90% of automatic transmission failures are caused by transmission overheating. Overheating can almost always tell you that there is something wrong with the transmission fluid.

    Transmission fluid is the life-blood to your transmission. It provides crucial functions such as cooling to the lubrication and regulates the pressure. Without enough transmission fluid or effective fluid, your transmission will start acting out.

    The ideal fluid temperature is below 175 degrees, but as fluid ages it starts to break down and lose its capacity to cool down the transmission. This is when transmission overheating occurs.

    According the BMW, the auto-transmission oil that comes with their cars lasts a lifetime and does not require replacement.

    However, according to ZF, the manufacture of BMW gearbox recommends to replace auto transmission fluid depending on individual driving styles. For example, some drive at high speeds or sport driving.

    ZF therefore recommends transmission oil change at every 100,000 km or after 8 years at the latest.

    It’s a dilemma as to whom we should follow!

    We hope you will enjoy viewing the following pictures.

    A BMW 523i had issue related to auto transmission oil cooler which was quickly resolved by the expertise of our professional mechanics.

    In this case, we discovered a worn out auto transmission cooler which lead to contamination of coolant and auto transmission fluid. If this issue had been left unnoticed for a longer period of time, the gearbox overhaul would have been inevitable.

     

    We lifted the BMW 523i to carry out the transmission cooler work followed by a routine undercarriage safety inspection and preventive maintenance.
     

    Other conditions such as low fluid level can also cause your transmission to overheat. More often than not, when a transmission overheats, it can go undetected until the trouble symptoms begin to show up. By then, the damage has occurred and a replacement is normally needed.
     

    Signs of the auto transmission fluid have been mixed with coolant.
     

    Inside the plastic contain shows the discharged cloudy colored fluid which confirmed that the auto transmission fluid had been contaminated with the coolant
     

    After all the repair works have been professionally accomplished, we provide a complimentary car wash and vacuuming of the interior.

    Preventive maintenance is always better than repair. It is important to understand about wear and tear before the components break down totally.

  • A BMW X3 came to our workshop with air conditioning problems

    Hi Everyone,

    Most of us take the car air conditioner for granted. We don’t give it much thought until it starts giving us problems.

    Just like all the other important part of a vehicle, the air conditioner should also be maintained properly. A car without a proper working air conditioner is nothing less than a solar heater and can be quite unbearable to travel in such a car.

    If we are having the problem of decreased cooling in the vehicle, then there might be a slow leak or blockage in the system that needs to be check as soon as possible. A low level of refrigerant or a slipping air-con compressor clutch can also decrease the performance of the air conditioner. There are various components in it and any one of the failing parts can create trouble.

    For example, if there is absolutely no cold air from the air conditioner, then it may have one of these problems:

    1. The fuse might be blown.
    2. Driver belt may be broken.
    3. There can be a blockage in the expansion valve, receiver driver or refrigerant line.
    4. Fault or leakage in expansion valve.

    The first thing you should look for are signs of leaking or a faulty air-con compressor. If the air conditioning system requires substantial repairs, you may not have the expertise or the equipment necessary to conduct those repairs at home. Then it’s time to seek professional advice from a professional automobile mechanic.

    We hope you will enjoy viewing the following pictures.

    A BMW X3 came to our workshop with air conditioning problems. A faulty car air conditioner can be difficult to diagnose and repair.
     

    We lifted the BMW X3 to carry out a routine undercarriage safety inspection and preventive maintenance also.
     

    Minor leaks of refrigerant in the air conditioning system are normal. However if the leak increases over time, you should consult your mechanic promptly.

    Many of the modern models have external filters to keep the dust particles from reaching inside the car. But with time, these filters can get clogged and reduce the air flow. Good maintenance is making sure the filters are cleaned or replaced at regular intervals, especially if we live in a dusty place.

     

    In the case of this BMW X3, we had to dismantle the dash board and steering wheel to replace the damaged parts.

    The car air-conditioner gets a lot of usage but we may not think much about the compressor working overtime to bring us cool comfort. The compressor does exactly what the name implies. It compresses refrigerant and sends it to your car’s air condenser.
     

    A new original cooling coil at the right is ready for replacement. We don’t compromise on the quality of replacement parts.
     

    All the parts are sensibly assembled back to its original positions with precision. It is also important that having a profession to fix back the parts carefully to prevent any unwanted loose noise.
     

    After all the repair works are completed, we also provide a complimentary car wash and vacuuming of the interior.

    Preventive maintenance is always better than repair. It is important to understand about wear and tear before the components break down totally.
