Last week, my waja jerking and kept dying. repair on throttle body and sensor and service RM1,200.
This week, check engine light kept turning on and engine jerked and dies.
Today, foreman said the ECU box filled with water from aircon. he tried to blowdry ECu still cannot, have to replace with new ECU.
Guarantee the bill going to be four figure sum.

ask any sifu's here and they can confirm tht the jerking was NOT due to the Throtte Body....but actually it was your
ECU thts having short-circuit all this while.....


there goes ur $$$$ smile_blackeye.gif

the earlier batches of 4G18 Waja's are known to have the a/c water dripping onto the ECU due to the short/blocked air-cond water outlet hose.
