Hi all Sifu..

Recently my avanza got this aircon problem, while the car idle or not moving, the aircon will only blow out warm air, while moving will blow out some cold air. So after some research, I think it's the compressor or condenser fan problem, so I check the fan but it's spinning. After few days, the aircon blowing air with a "sihhh" weird sound, like some gas leaking sound. The air is as hot as the air outside the car and not longer blowing cold air no matter moving or not. So I guess must be the compressor already. But my car only 6 years old, so weird compressor can broken so fast as for toyota. But yesterday I found a thing, the aircon at behind seat is blowing COLD air, only the aircon in front seat blowing hot air.. any taiko here can't share your experience for this case? Is it still compressor problem or piping error?

You would need a nice cabin filter/air con filter to protect your aircon system from damage by the AIR poluter. After you fix it..

I just got the car fix, but abit expensive. It's the coiling coil problem, so have to change it, here is the damage, please help me to see whether it's overcharged.

Denso Original Cooling Coil : RM450 (Not sure about the price for denso for avanza)
Gas : RM50 (Expensive because need to refill all gas)
Workmanship : RM150 (Expensive because they got to remove everything from dashboard then only got the cooling coil)
Total : RM 650 sad.gif

Hi, Sorry I can't help but to ask if changing cooling coil (evaporator coil?) for Innova, does the price work out similar?

weird, i was about to conclude that the condensor fan was nto strong enough, made the air hot and pressure in the pipes skyrocket, thus blowing the pipes out(or punching a hole in the cooling coil) for that metter

Hi all,

1. Mine is Avanza 1.5 , 2008, bought new.

2. Last week, the aircond blew hot air from front & rear blower.

3. Sent to SC Subang, the service advisor told me the magnetic clutch was broken, need to be replaced, cost + workmanship =RM800.

4. After they replaced the clutch, the aircond still blew hot air. The service advisor told me that the compressor need to be replaced also, cost me another RM2200++.

5. Now, after i paid more than RM3000, the aircond still not blowing cold air, the temperature is like when you drive with open window in the morning. Damn. BTW, the new clutch & compressor got 1 year warranty.

6. What should I do? Sent back to SC and pay more? Arghhh...

Hi again,

Thank you Makky & neo1 for your reply..

Update to my aircond problem:

1. Sent my Avanza to SC Subang Jaya this morning, login my complaint.

2. After another Service Advisor & a mechanic check the fan, yes.. Makky is correct, the culprit was the fan's motor. They told me to change the fan's motor (Denso). It will cost me around RM1000. That's too much for me. I declined.

3. Drove back my Avanza to my office and started calling my friend asking for a workshop. Found one at :
AEA Motor Sport, Desa Latania, Section 36, Shah Alam (Jalan Kebun area).

4. Now my Avanza has a new fan's motor (Denso, same as the old one) and it only cost me RM280++ (fully installed). And the aircond is cold like new.

5. Sorry SC, I'm not trying to scare your customer but for ordinary people like me who drive Avanza, the extra RM700 means a lot to me.

Thanks again.

Hi, the fan motor only cost around RM 130 - RM 160 in a spare parts shops and you can get some mechanic to fix it for you for maybe between RM 20 - RM 50... it's quite easy that you can also fix it your self...
I had my Avanza air cond produce hot air out of sudden (I thought air cond spoiled) and then when I looked at the temperature meter, it went up... I checked at an radio accessory shop and they said fan motor rosak, and they quoted me RM 160. After that I checked at few spare parts shop and I got one denso made in indonesia-original for RM 125 and got a mechanic to fix for me for RM 20 = RM145... a bit driver here and there to survey price would have cost me RM 5 for petrol... wink.gif

Hi guys, I am planning to choose between the Exora Bold CFE and Avanza 1.5 Premium. Some said Avanza is better as the running cost and the spare part is cheaper than Exora. Can anyone give comment on this?

After reading some post here, don't think the Toyota SC is so reliable. They sucks money without solving the real problem. Any good, cheap and nice mechanic/service shop to recommend in Klang Valley? My email is bcc98@hotmail.com

Avanza made from old Tech ofcoz cheaper, Exora bold is new and turbo. So exora will have some hidden and extra running cost later on when it come near above 40k mileage.
