Found some oil on the car porch floor yesterday. Oil might be there for days and I did not notice it. Cleaned the floor to confirm the leak. Yes, some oil on the floor the next day.

Serviced the leak, luckily it was not the engine body. It was the top cover gasket. Replaced and it cost me RM150 including 2 other things they said needed to be replaced as well.

Like to know how many here has this top gasket leak. My car is 5+ years.

Yesterday after I discovered the leak, topped up the engine oil. But I over did it with the level at about 1 cm higher the max. Asked the SC to check and adjust the engine oil, they said yes but did not do it. So I will have to suck it out myself later when the oil is cooler.

Gasket leak is quite common even for other cars. It's better to do at service center because you're less likely to be conned from the 'gasket glue fee' where these workshops will always charge RM20-RM30. If you buy high temperature gasket glue from stores, one tube can be used on two cars and is only around RM10 or so.

Thanks.

Gasket replacement done at the SC.

My previous Wira, even more than 10 years old, did not have to replace the gasket. May be due to my low mileage and no excessive speed? Ha.

According to brochure, the Preve regardless of IAFM+ or CFE have 15" ventilated discs for the front and 15" solid discs for the rear.

Drove for 5 years, 120k km.
Except regular service. So far just replace engine mounting once, front absorber and Link once, oil catch hose once and air intake hose once, CVT gear position sensor once. I guess is not too bad.
But I do have some weird noise when cornering and slip clutch on moving from standstill are currently remain unsolve.
