Hi guys I've had my 2010 ATX aurion for about 8-9months now , I've run across a few problems so far list being castor bushes engine check light with no traction control light failure of intermediate steering wheel shaft (clucking and tapping noise) I always maintain this car as much as I can, I service the car (oil , oil filter and the rest myself ) every 7-8000km I use castrol edge k&n air filter genuine oil filter just did a genuine fuel filter and fuel pump filter change on it i have dba t2 slotted rotors (front and back) with bendix pads running on a set of Bridgestone potenza re003's ao my problem is that i drove off off my drive way today and saw a bit of oil on the drive way which scared me Abit , so I quickly jumped under the car and saw oil leaking from this location (I'll put up a pic) can anyone please tell me what's going on here ? Also the car is very loud like tapping noise when I cold start it and in general sounds like a tractor plus I get this loud pig like squeezing for about 10min on a cold start (😑) pls help
After doing 130,000km in my 07 KXR, I have just bought 4 new tyres. The original Grandtreks did 60,000 and the replacement set also Grandtreks did a little more because I drove on less gravel. I was very happy with the tyres as they were very quiet, worked well on stoney roads and never let me down, but come this time I found I could fit Michelins for the same price and as they promised quieter running, better fuel economy and longer life, I figured I couldn't go wrong. Well it turns out that after just 2000km, it seems I have been hoodwinked by Michelin's advertising. The Latitude Tour HP tyres are dreadfully noisy on all but the smoothest types of bitumen, to the point of giving me a headache, and my fuel usage has increased by 5%. I will have to see whether their 3rd claim of longer life is also a furphy. Has anyone else had experience with these tyres?
