Repair shop advice

Hey all,

 

I need to have a water pump and radiator replaced in my toyota corolla. I've not dealt with any auto repair shops in Pattaya. Does anyone have recommendations regarding a trustworthy place?

Several Radiator shops along Sukumvit Highway..Go slow and you will see them...Rebuild radiators--Clean them--Reverse Flush and do Water Pumps and Hoses

No place on the Planet like Pattaya..Don't let your meat loaf

I know one shop that did top notch body work on my truck, maybe stop in and ask about radiators/pumps....

They are on Sukhumvit just opposite of King Power.

That's the shop I use for bodywork but I think that's all they do.

 

For radiator I'd try pitstop just a little bit further down the road.

Thanks for the feedback everyone. I'll roll down Sukhumvit. Once the fix is underway, I'll report back with where I went, associated costs, and quality.

So... The results:

 

On Wednesday around noon, I took the car to South Pattaya Dinamo & Air. They replaced a relay, all cooling system hoses, the water pump, and the radiator. The car was finished by 1800. Total cost = 7800 baht. The work seems to be well done and there have been no issues with overheating even after a brisk jaunt to Ratchaburi province.

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
