Re: car idle and stall
Hi Mikey, Ray Ray,
Chin Fook is quite famous in Mercedes since long long time ago and also famous for quite big charges many years ago, don't know if this still persists but Ray Ray seems to acknowledge that his price is reasonable now, that's good to hear that . Super Excel is reasonable that's why so many cars are there everyday , there are two bosses there one called Ah Soon last time he worked in Lowe Motors which sells Mercedes, and the other partner is called Ah Guan, normally if you see Ah Guan it will be slightly cheaper according to some of my friends who used to frequent there. As for in Bayan Lepas l used to take my Mercedes to Aplus Auto Sdn Bhd in Bayan Lepas, 4, Jln Kedidi 2, Tmn Desaria 11900 Bayan Lepas Penang. Tel 04-6249851. His boss is called Ah Hock, you may wanna take your car and see if BUT please ask the price before doing, when l first went there many years ago it was cheaper but u fortunately the price increased little by little when we are regular, very sad. l have in fact reckoned his workshop in Thisbe group and few of our members did go there , l also invited Ah Hock for our TT session but finally it was cancel so he didn't managed to meet up. Another friend of mine in Relau also knows how to repair Mercedes Xin Auto , next to Iconic skies condominium, you may wanna call him at this number 0135032323 Ah Ern. He repair normal cars also , you will see his workshop have different type of cars, ranging fr Mercedes, BMW and local cars. Another place famous for Mercedes will be KA Auto Service Centre, 36, Lebuh Bakau, 11600 Penang. 04-2816643, boss name also Ah Guan if l can remember well. Hope these will help you guys a bit. But best is to ask estimated price before giving allowing them to service, all these place l went to repaired my Mercedes except Chin Fook. The place l still go now will be SuperExcel , Xin Auto, KA Auto. There are few more places one in Abo Siti Lane and the other places in Island and mainland .
Cheers & good luck

the car havent been driving for 1 week, just back penang today.
started the car, the engine light still there. then realise it has some vibration when rev went up to 2k rpm to 2.5k rpm.. then vibration again somewhere around 3k rpm onwards. it never vibrate during idling. went for few round, didnt die off.

Hello Mikey

I'm in Bayan Lepas as well and agree 💯 that not many are hands on with W124. Learn the hard way when a mechanic used the wrong fuel relay. He used for 260E and mine was 230E and after unnecessary changes of other parts, finally realise that it was the wrong relay in the first place. After my experiences with other mechanics,I don't mind the distance, as long the price is reasonable and the mechanic knows exactly what he is doing

No news on TT session in Penang but hope there would be one soon. All of us can share notes on preferred mechanics and who knows, due to good support on that preferred mechanic, we could get a group discount for MyBenz members

Hi,
The transfer road i guess you are referring to Super Excel. My friend did mentioned about this workshop to me, however, I'm staying in Bayan Lepas and trying to find any reliable workshop nearby.

I had w124 too, pretty reliable car but unfortunately, it is so 'complicated' that new mechanic wont be able to troubleshoot and solve w124 issue easily.

thanks for the tips. will check out Chin Fook as well.

Btw, any w204 TT in the island?

Hi Mikey

I have been to a handful of mechanics in Penang. Eventually only 2 that were able to do a good job in my opinion.

Chin Cook at Weld Quay is my go to guy. He resolved the issue real quick and the price is reasonable. After a visit from him, car problems are usually resolved. I have a W124, so there was one time I had an unresolved issue with my fuel distribution. He called an old-timer and PRESTO!...problem solved. So far he's the only one that I know that has access to senior mechanics with many years experience in working with Merc

Another choice for me would be a workshop at Bandar Perda, Millennium Merz. I usually look for Azizan. Same as Chin Took except he takes a longer time to complete (too many cars sometimes)

There's one I never had a chance to try out is, at Transfer Road. Once u turn right into Transfer Road after Burma Road, just very short distance, on your left. Another "kaki" Benz claims he is a former staff of Chin Fook. Most of the time I see his workshop, quite a considerable number of cars are there so I suppose he knows his job.Quote:
