Last year bought a 2008 Swift Sport for my son. Already spent like over 7k on it but mostly upgrade/mods (better tires and rims, upgrade brake system, remap, exhaust, tinting, better osram bulbs) while real repairs were probably just under 2k of that 7k amount (some engine leaks, absorbers & mountings, stabilizer links, belt, all fluid change, filters).

Then on my Mark X spent maybe up to 3.7k but 2.8k of that amount was for install LSD and change to shorter 4.6 final gear. Then around rm250 to touch up the rims from curb rashes, some rm600+ to service (carbon clean, oil change).

Finally on my wife's Livina, just replace absorbers with used Kayaba RS and some engine and ATF oil change, probably total less than rm600.

there's a more comprehensive thread from /k already

https://forum.lowyat.net/index.php?showtopic=4704453&hl=

as for myself

QUOTE(mingyuyu @ Dec 7 2018, 01:59 PM)
just keep all receipts, should be good enough.

Bought a used car at Jan, so far:
1) change brake pads/ radiator hoses/ waterpump - rm600
2) 4 new 195/55/15 Ecopia - rm700
3) 4 new absorber/ mounting/ link/ bush + alignment - rm980
4) fix knocking steering rack (kena con job) and fix leaking rocker cover gasket - rm380
5) change EO and filter - rm130
6) replaced headlight bulbs to OSRAM Nightbreaker - rm80
7) replaced headlight/rearlight for all 4 lights - rm250

shit i didnt know i spent over 3k until i compiled all of them. always tell myself i spent around 1.5k only  bangwall.gif

Coming maintenance, should be doing it in the coming few weeks:
1) clean throttle body (looks dirty to me and pedal response kinda weak at low speed)
2) change CVT oil (gearbox jerks sometimes so im guessing something wrong with oil)
3) change engine mount (engine shakes quite a bit a idle)
4) fix funny noise as the car is in gear and not moving (im suspecting some belt/bearing)
*
For 2019:

1) Cleaned both throttle body and IACV by myself so spent rm0 on it
2) Changed CVT oil and spent rm120 on it

Yes recon

No mechanic cannot check.

Maybe if they have original Toyota service tool (not cheap scan tools/obd tools), but if the tampering was done by hard writing ROM/replaced meter and/or ECU, will end up impossible to check anyways.

Btw on FA20D n F they’re same engine

Subaru FA20 engine reliability, problems and repair
At the beginning of 2012 the joint Subaru and Toyota model was put into production. You know it as Subaru BRZ, Toyota 86 or Scion FR-S. New sports naturally aspirated flat-4 FA20 engine was developed specially for this car. It was built on the basis of FB20 cylinder block, modified into square bore/stroke ratio. Diameter of its cylinders and piston stroke is 86 mm. Unlike usual FB20, this motor uses new pistons, new crankshaft, and the compression ratio was increased to 12.5.
FA20 engines use new heads with direct injection system of Toyota D4S, and also variable valve timing system AVCS is used on intake and exhaust camshafts. Also 4-2-1 headers are installed on this motor.
Such naturally aspirated engine was called FA20D or Toyota 4U-GSE and it showed 200 horsepower at 7,000 rpm, and torque 205 Nm at 6,400-6,600 rpm.
Except FA20D, there is also turbocharged version which is called FA20F/FA20E, better known as FA20DIT. This motor replaced EJ207 and EJ205.

Subaru FA20 engine reliability, problems and repair
At the beginning of 2012 the joint Subaru and Toyota model was put into production. You know it as Subaru BRZ, Toyota 86 or Scion FR-S. New sports naturally aspirated flat-4 FA20 engine was developed specially for this car. It was built on the basis of FB20 cylinder block, modified into square bore/stroke ratio. Diameter of its cylinders and piston stroke is 86 mm. Unlike usual FB20, this motor uses new pistons, new crankshaft, and the compression ratio was increased to 12.5.
FA20 engines use new heads with direct injection system of Toyota D4S, and also variable valve timing system AVCS is used on intake and exhaust camshafts. Also 4-2-1 headers are installed on this motor.
Such naturally aspirated engine was called FA20D or Toyota 4U-GSE and it showed 200 horsepower at 7,000 rpm, and torque 205 Nm at 6,400-6,600 rpm.
Except FA20D, there is also turbocharged version which is called FA20F/FA20E, better known as FA20DIT. This motor replaced EJ207 and EJ205.
FA20DIT engine uses non-forged pistons with the decreased compression ratio 10.6, its heads flow better, combustion chambers were improved in these heads and new camshafts are applied.
On the intake part there is the plastic intake manifold with TGV valves, and new turbo manifold is also used.
FA20 DIT engine uses twin scroll Garrett MGT2259S turbocharger. The maximum boost pressure is 15.9 psi (1.1 bar), and power is 272 HP at 5,600 rpm, torque 350 Nm at 2,000-5,200 rpm. Also, the over boost mode is available, at this mode boost pressure can increase to 22 psi (1.5 bar) for several seconds.
FA20 firing order is 1-3-2-4.

You know how to Google/wiki you don't know how to read?

FA20D
NA
Higher RPM
higher compression
Different heads
Different cam shafts
Different intake and exhaust manifold (duh pure DIT + turbo vs dual system and NA)
Forged Pistons, not sure on the con rods
Requires premium petrol (although me poor so fuck it use 95 with expense of lower power, about 2 to 3 less Dyno before/after with +/- 1 hp as margin of error)

Again, 2 are very different engines with only common base that is FA20.
2 very different purposes as well one being a sports car and anything family sedan, even though yes the family sedan has more power and a turbo.

my engine is leaking oil everywhere.

Toyota Malaysia only recall is the valve springs.

Yeah I do know how too read K20a TYPE R and K20z is a similar engine....with similar problems...
One is forged and lightened everything with uprated oil pump and cam retainers and valve springs to rev higher to 9000rpm. ( tuned )

Other is a economy engine... revs to 6800 rpm. In the US the Honda fans swap out parts with the SI or type R as mods ...essentially parts are interchangeable... it is essentially the same engine.

With the same problems.

Crankshaft seal leaks over time

Valve clearances need to be rechecked and tightened to spec....

I can quote the K20a as I’ve owned 3 variations of them from R to normal.


The wiki engines has also grouped it together into the same family. What problrms u experience on ur FA20 other FA20 and it variations will experience to the some degree... if the manufacturer doesn’t update... just sharing...
I believe some of the previous problems with 86 is exactly what WRX 2015+ and other FA20F owners are experiencing with rough idle.

Knowledge is power....

Subaru FA20 engine tuning
FA20 Turbo. Supercharger

You are very lucky if you have turbocharged FA20 DIT, it will be easy for you to increase its power. For this purpose you need to buy only 3-inch aftermarket cat-back exhaust system, cold air intake, boost controller and adjust ECU. For cars with an automatic transmission it is desirable to have transmission cooler. It will give you 300-320 WHP. It will be excellent if you install aftermarket radiator and a frontal intercooler. It will be enough for active driving, but for receiving 400+ horsepower, you will need turbo kit.

Owners of BRZ and 86 are not so lucky as they need a turbo kit at once. It is possible to install cold air intake, straight exhaust system, to adjust ECU and to receive additionally 20-25 HP. That is all you need, you shouldn’t try to build high rev naturally aspirated, it is expensive and Subaru BRZ turbo will be quicker anyway.
The best choice for your Toyota 86 is supercharger kit, you should install it on FA20 stock internals. Such kits have max boost pressure 9-10 psi (0.6-0.7 bar), and it is enough to receive 280-300 horsepower. It is simple and optimal variant to receive great power.

To receive 350+ horsepower, you need the new fuel pump, fuel injectors, pulley and water/methanol injection. Don’t forget about transmission cooler and aftermarket radiator.
Instead of supercharger kit, you can install turbo kit on the basis of Garrett GTX3076R. Such kit is possible to install on stock internals and to receive 400 ++ WHP, and even up to 500 WHP (sport fuel).
FA20 stock internals keep more than 500 WHP, and if you use sports fuel and adjust ECU correctly, than over 600 horsepower.


Do Read and notice even WIKI engines has lumped ur 86 engine with the current WRX engine.... as the same engine family.

So ur 86 is not the only one leaking oil everywhere this is a common problem since last time on EJ engine series, the oil seals/gasket wear out fast for some strange reason. I’m just here to share... we can share knowledge to be better consumers and car owners.... I don’t have good knowledge on Subaru boxers.

How much is your fiat value for trade in? Is the new picanto as good as everyone claims?

RM7k for the Fiat which is a bit more than what I paid for it because I bought it without a working gearbox.

The Picanto, it is a bit tight on space and slightly underpowered. Other than those 2 drawbacks it is definitely a very good car for the money especially if you will be keeping it long term.

Hahaha that's why I avoid Peugeot and most other European cars like a plague! The only Euro cars that I might be remotely interested are just Mercs, BMW, and maybe a few Nissan engined Renaults, and they must be good performance cars to attract me, not just their common models. If just common cars, I'll just stick to Japanese.

Mercs, Bimmer would be even more scarier since they are premium brands

Renault, Nissan parts are reported to be over priced too. The state of things with the Renault Nissan alliance is hazy now with the arrest of Those and still in jail.

But in general they have a bit better reliability and anyway more understandable if expensive cars with expensive parts, unlike Peugeot! Cheap car, no prestige, nothing special but yet crap reliability and expensive maintenance and repairs. Sorry to be blunt but that's the reality.

For Renault, yeah that's why I said "maybe". 🙂 Coz I know Nissan quality and reliability is also not as good. But at least still nowhere near as expensive reapairs as your Peugeot!

That alone still around 15k la
Add fuel? 9k? sad.gif

Tires already 2 sets about 2.4k total
Almost 30k km mileage clocked by myself

Well then yeah you're unlucky! Probably owning a Toyota engined Lotus will still be cheaper then owning a Subaru engined Toyota! I admit it's a very nice looking car though, saw a nice black one today.

2 sets of tires in just 30k km?? Must be some extreme category with only 200 TW or lower isn't it? I change tires usually at 40-50+k km. But 2.4k for 2 sets is damn cheap. 1 set of mine is already around that.

Yeah, it's a typo but I just leave it it after reading it! Lol.

Hi all !

As a first time car owner ( year 2018 ) I'd love how much others have spent on fixing your car as well

here's mine

it's  a 2011

Kia Forte 1.6 with 185,000km clocked in.

Been driving this baby for 9 months clocking in 23,000km in the meantime
Tyres RM1750 , bought 7 new tyres last year as I had 3 flat tyres , Keep finding weird metal chunks in my tyres hence

2nd Hand Rims RM300

Paintjob RM850 , bang into a wall when I was being careless

Spark Plug RM450

Black oil RM600

Transmission Fluid RM200 ?

Coolant RM100 ?

Air filter and AC filter RM 200 , bought and changed myself

Totals up to RM4450 for 2019 to fix up my car.

The cost is pretty high even when you mostly DIY. How often do you change your spark plugs? Why your coolant so costly? Your service interval every 5k or 10k?

Actually not too bad because that already included tire and timing belt change which is normal. The only one thing I think a bit odd is the hand brake arm. Also the oil change frequency is way too much especially since using good FS oil.

I can't really remember the price of my coolant to be honest , but after some recollection I think it's about RM65

the spark plugs I've changed once over the span of 10 months , I have a few bought online for RM80 but my dad didn't know and got one from the mechanic which cost RM200

I change hand brank arm because the button spring melantun and terkeluar....dunno how to attach back. Bought a whole new handbrake new one laugh.gif

On my routine changing engine oil (FYI i use semi synthetic oil only to date) is because i want to avoid oil sludge in my engine. Proton Preve CFE/Turbo is known for its OCH (Oil Cooler Hose) issue where the two hose which are attached to Oil Cooler Assembly are suddenly burst.

Woah all exotic Euro cars ! Don't see many saabs and Alfas in Malaysia

I don't particularly care much for Japanese cars.

Most of my life starting with my first car I've always driven cars that were made in Europe and yes all of them I bought 2nd hand.

No more Alfas in Malaysia as there isn't a dealer and most of their engines have issues with our fuel quality here.

No more Saabs because this car company no longer exist. We always thought we would keep that Saab as it was made in my wife's hometown but it was getting tough to source for parts even if you have the money to pay.

Are those prices from Ford or you changed all those parts at an independent mechanic?
