Clutch Pump anxiety

change my clutch pump. The mechanic said ‘sudah kembang’ and ‘mesti
I have seen what the clutch looks like but I have not seen what a clutch
pump looks like.
I then asked the service advisor what is the cost like and he replied in
the vicinity of RM300 with RM40 for labour.
I got soalan for you guys out there ...
(a) If I get the repair done outside instead of PESC, how much savings
would that be?
(b) Would the shops in Segambut sell this clutch pump (for 4G93)?
© What is the risk if I continue driving with a ‘kembang’ clutch
Don’t ask me what the mechanic meant by ‘kembang’ because he just put his
hand behind the radiator and went deep and ‘felt up’ the engine.
Would appreciate feedback on this.
Incidentally, my fuel gauge failed immediately after the warranty period
expired and it cost me RM215 for the part alone.

I have changed both recently. The top one costs about RM120 plus and the

clutch pumps but the mechanic didn’t have the time to actually check which
one that is the problem - the one top (with clutch fluid reservoir or the
bottom one. I guess it’s the bottom one because he put his hand behind
the radiator and made his comment and not near the horn where the fluid
reservoir is located.
My car’s only done 53k km and I guess it’s driving style that causes the
problem but my previous car, a Toyota Corolla, never had the problem and I
drove it for 10 years. My understanding is Clutch remains problem free
unless heavy usage (or wrong usage as the case may be) so now I’m losing
faith in Proton parts.
I’m thinking of getting the parts from Segambut and passing them on to my
mechanic to replace, would I be running a risk of getting the wrong parts?
At least with nuggyn’s help I now know and confirm that PESC’s prices are
I’m still scratching my head figuring what the PESC mechanic meant by
