transmission and tires for old Toyota


pbangalore

Recommended Posts

My (lady) friend has an 03 Toyota Wish.  She needs tires, 195/65R15, a common size, and was quoted 14000B which seems crazy (I can get a new tire in the US at $65 in that size).  Suggestions on where to send her?

Bigger problem, she has what I think is an automatic transmission problem, but it is hard enough to talk to her about simple stuff, car stuff is way beyond here.  She was quoted a 26000B repair but I have no clue what they are suggesting to "repair".  She can drive the car, suggestions for a shop she could take it to?

A Tire shop I think are Honest is Behind Tesco Trepassit Road near the Night Market....3500 Baht you can Buy 90% Dunlops or many other brands and they Install them..Full Set of 4 Tires....They sell New also for a Very good discount...Fast Drive in and out in an Hour..Old Car Maybe Used are Better..They come off accident Cars but are 90% rubber left...

  Be careful on the Transmission work..Many get ripped off when all it needs is a Fluid and Filter change

Thanks for the tire suggestion.  From her description I do fear she needs transmission work, and if she really needs it replaced it would be expensive I know, but not being there I have no way to know, so I'm hoping for a referal to someone likely to be honest.  Obviously with an 03 even if it needs replacement a used or rebuilt tranny makes more sense.

Try Khun One along Soi Nern Plab Wahn Soi 24, opposite a “Land for Sale” sign.

His wife sells clothes, also along the road.

Phone numbers 0852260206 and 0941912972.

Used Parts here are tough to find and May have more problems then what you have..No Guarantee on Used....Filters--Fluid Change and Band adjustment First..This is Cheap compared to Replacement..Most Garages can perform this

Isn't that a re-thread shop? Back in my early 20's (low on money) I bought re-thread tires and had an accident when one of the re-reads blew out on the motorway under normal use., ended up crashing my car into a post ....Re-treads? Never again.

Can you do a band adjustment on a modern auto transmission? I thought that disappeared around the same time as cast iron housings.....

A standard workshop can only do oil change and maybe change solenoids. Everyhing inside an auto transmission is specialist work.
