i was using an L200 pickup back in college! :lol: miss ko na rin ang ride ng pick up. parang kahit saan, pwede.

kanina dumaan ako ng ford libis. naka-display na yung 2007 ranger! hanep ang interior! punta ko ng launch nila sa philippine plaza sa jan 10 to see the new 2007 models! :)

hi bro!

about the prices, here's something i got from from libis: http://manilatonight...showtopic=31342

these are launch prices and will likely go up anywhere from 2 to 7% after one month.

i'll be going to the launch on wednesday. if you're in the area, let me know so i can get you in. or you can drop by any ford dealer to get an invitation. by invitation only "daw" eh. ;) see you there.

I have a Mitsu l200 endeavor that I use for a daily beater... never lets me down, especially on baha days... I use it to haul big ass stuff, very convenient when doing grocery... well anyways I saw the new strada and damn... its freakin nice... thinkin of buyin 1... coz of the turbo, I bet it rides sweeter than the previous stradas... coz thats my only complain with the L200 its a bit slow... but 4 a daily beater ok na rin... tops speed on the endeavor tho is 155kph :) thats on d expressway going 2 subic... hirap paabutin ng mas mataas pa bcoz of the slow acceleration...

whats the year of your endeavor dude?? mine is 1999 but i bought it second hand....i only did 120 on it when i was on the nlex...didn't pushed it to the limit...

yap, i have seen the new mitsubishi strada..ang ganda...it's really slow but it's really strong...

if i may suggest sir, you can put the diesel booster additive that can be bought in petron gas stations..i think 200 or 250ml costs around 54 or 56 bucks...if u plan to put diesel on your vehicle, kindly mix it with your diesel....

it improves the ride.. trust me!!

In my book, additives are just a waste of money. Whether you own a gas or diesel engined vehicle, the most important thing is to change your motor oil at the correct interval as recommended by the manufacturer. And use high quality oil filters (original if possible) and the correct viscosity oil based on our climate (again as recommended by our local manufacturer).

i change my oil in the casa dude, sa Mitsubishi mismo, kaso the oil is just regular oil...masyado mahal yung special oil sa casa eh, pero i change my oil in time, 3 months actually...

the ride really improves on the diesel additive...dunno about if it will be bad in the long run, i don't even exceed 100 mp/h when im in the NLEX!!

What brand of oil do they use sa casa? Recommend ko wag mo na sa kanila dalhin pag magpapa change-oil. Bilin mo na lang ung filter sa kanila tapos sa labas mo na ipa-service para makapili ka pa ng brand of oil na preferred mo at para makatipid ka din sa gastos. I use Shell Helix 20/50 para sa Civic ko but iba ang ratings para sa diesel engine. Try mo din ang Shell brand, who knows baka makuha mo din ung improved ride kahit walang additives. Baka kasi ung ginagamit nila na oil sa casa eh pang Japan ang ratings. Sa Honda kasi ang nilalagay nila sa kotse eh 15/40 rating....dapat 15/50 or 20/50 para mas suitable sa hotter climate natin.

thanks for the very helpful tip dude, i think they just use regular oil sa casa... i usually go there because of the oil filter...next change oil, i'll try to follow your advice dude!!

just recently, my radiator just had a small hole in it, so when i fixed it, the mechanic told me to just use plain water, avoid the coolant, kasi before i use coolant (prestone or the petron super coolant)...

I had my Civic's radiator repaired na din around 2 years ago. Nabutas yung top part na plastic kaya para hindi masayang ung radiator, dinala ko sa Denso sa Quezon Av. malapit sa EDSA. Pinalitan nila yung buong plastic sa ibabaw. Total cost: P2500...kasama na labor at parts. Sa Banawe gusto nila palitan buong radiator ko, P4500 hinihingi sakin at hindi pa aluminum, tanso pa..kaya sabi ko saka na lang at pagiisipan ko muna. Buti na lang may nagsabi sakin dalhin ko na lang sa Denso, OEM pa.

Wag mo lagyan ng plain tap water na galing sa faucet (kahit na Manila Waters yan o Nawasa). May halong chlorine yan na masama sa radiator...magkaka scales yung loob. Gamitan mo ng coolant na recommended ng casa plus Wilkins or Absolute distilled water. Yup yung binibili natin sa grocery. Mas tatagal ang radiator mo pati na din water pump. Mura lang ang distilled water kaya wag manghinayang kung mas tatagal naman ang radiator natin.

I saw a display of the new Ford Ranger in Greenhills Theater last Friday. Ang ganda! I don't know about the ride though - I heard Isuzu's have the best ride comfort for pick-ups....
