    Default Various problems. Need guidance

    salam @Xulfiqar bro and other pakwheelers i need your guidance???
    Today i went to suzuki 3s dealer for coolant change, i bought this cultus car model 2011 52000 kms done just a month ago so i thought its better to change water in radiator with good coolant, but then they said to go for a under body inspection and told me various problems,

    1. they said your radiator is not genuine and is plastic made, genuine one is 7000 and your metal hoses along with other rubber hoses will be changed costing about 500-600 and about 1000 labor. My car is running fine but i wanted to change water to coolant so that engine and other pipes can be rust free and i think it will be better in long run. so please guide whether i should go with this work or not?

    2. they said you have oil pin leakage so it will be repaired for 1800 along with labor.

    3. they said steering boots are torn and need change so it will be around 500 labor plus you have to buy boots from outside, they are not available separately at their workshop.

    4. they said gear oil shifter seal leakage is there so we will seal that too for rupees 3000 and we have machines to fix it and we wont take the gear box out for that and then your gear oil will be changed. the only problem i have is there is bit hard shifting from neutral gear to 1st gear? they did not say it will be resolved by this.

    5. they said your petrol tank is heated/damaged, it is out of shape. so we will open it and see if it can be repaired. costing me 1000 labor.

    Please tell me whether i should go for these works or not, or what works i should go for immediately or should i consult some other mechanic too. Your guidance is needed most please. i will be highly thankful

    OK I read it completely.
    I have one question:
    Do I need to change pipes too because as u see how much rust is seen in the radiator so i am sure the pipes would have rust deposition ! If so, what would be cost if change the complete piping system.
    Thanks.

    if the pipes are really corroded than you have no choice than go for scrap parts... new metal parts I doubt would be available, but plastic parts like hose pipes etc can be easily bought from 3S Suzuki Shops.
    As @capsat said prefer using the solution before changing pipes etc. Have it tested if you find some leaks or there are any problems after citric solution than go for changing metal parts and radiator if needed.

    seems you are getting a panic attack what if ? - relax,

    if the engine is working good, the temp stays normal and car does not heat up the citric solution process will not be any disaster at all. everything the members share over the forum is collection of different scenarios under different circumstances.

    if you can read, write & understand english; carefully following the steps will not be a problem, go ahead we are all here to help you.

    Brother, i have rust on my metal hose pipes too but from outside and even then i am planning to change them and they are available at 3s shops and are cheap they quote me with 450 if i remember correctly last week for two metal pipes and rubber hoses are not more than 500, if you want reliability then you can buy from them and get your work done from anyone you want to.
