The auto tech, said that they had to replace the whole cluster in my Figo. Changes that moisture was the cause of the problem.

comment Cylinder 1 and 4 has low compresion, after engine has been redone
The engine was redone, because the engine was running bad, it was making a winding sound, and you had to rev the engine high to get the car moving. And the block was not checked if it was warped. Did not even know that was possible.

We did not test the compression afterwards, we should have, but it did not idle right after the engine was rebuilt. Also our mechanic told us after he put the engine together, took it out for a test drive, and drove it quite hard. He said that it's fine, don't need to broke it in. Now I am wondering if this maybe was not the cause of all of this.

Over 200 000km, replace the valves and reset them, skim the top, drill the block, new oversize pistols with new oversize rings. New bearings mains, and big ends. And new water pump, new water bump, new timing melt, and put in second hand injectors, and full gasket set.

comment Is it worth getting an OBD2 scanning tool?
Which is a geat idea to check your car anytime anywhere, by using something as portable as your cellphone. I like it, if I deciede to get one, will take what you said into conserderation.

I guess that is also true. Well where I stay is cost me R350 each time I want to run a scan on my car, if I ask the mechanic to do it. But then again how offen will I run a scan on my car.

I am a software developer, so error codes is something I can understand;) and I am sure I can get the meaning of the codes on the Internet somewhere. I just also thought if I can get it now, then all future problems with my cars, I can be better informed of what is wrong and tell the mechanic what to look out for. Saving some time and money.
