What happened to temperature gauges?
I think you can safely assume that it's cost cutting, but it's probably a reflection of today's drivers who rarely look at their gauges anyway and wouldn't know what a temperature is trying to tell them. I too prefer a gauge as you see what's happening before it gets to the point of serious damage to the engine, but the red light if observed and acted upon should provide sufficient warning of trouble. Like you I also believe a tachometer is a not needed in most cars.Show more
Best second hand 5-door car for $8000?
You could look at all small models from the mainstream carmakers, like Mazda, and you won’t go wrong. The Mazda2 is a good choice, but you could also look at the Toyota Yaris, Hyundai i20 and Kia Rio.Show more
Daihatsu Sirion clutch wear?
It’s not possible to say with any certainty when your clutch might we worn out, but you’re already doing well having clocked up 105,000 km. You can normally tell how far the clutch has worn by the height of the clutch pedal at take-up. If it’s close to the floor there’s plenty left in it, if it’s at the top of the pedal travel it’s probably getting close to worn out.Show more
Ask Smithy Xtra noisy Daihatsu Sirion
What the mechanic told you is rubbish, there has clearly been a change in the way the engine is running, and that suggests there’s a problem. Changing the spark plugs, they’re located in the cylinder head, and the spark leads is a good idea. If you’re not sure take the car to an auto store and they will show you the plugs and leads and supply you with replacements.Show more
