Can I get a car diagnosis before payment?


I keenly follow your articles in the Daily Monitor. What is the downside of a Pajero second hand car? Why are they so cheap? I want to buy a Pajero short chasis. Can I get a diagnosis /assessment of cars before I pay for it? What is the rate for such a service? Daniel

Hello Daniel, thank you for following. Pajero as a vehicle has no generic problems. It is only dogged by the same challenges that affect poorly maintained used vehicles with Gasoline Direct Injection (GDI Mitsubishi) or Fuel Stratified injection petrol engines (such as VW/Audi FSi or Toyota D4). Failure of the fuel and air intake systems is usually due to lack of maintenance or use of counterfeit filters, bad fuels and engine oil.

The GDi engine fuel delivery system delivers fuel in the right amounts and pressure directly to engine cylinders and is more fuel efficient and provides instant engine power.

However, it is very sensitive to fuel and intake air quality and quantity (fuel pressure/ air volume). It is important to replace the long life fuel filter on time (at 100,000 kms) and ensure that the air filter is kept clean or replaced when you need to. Failure to replace the fuel filter on time will lead to reduced fuel pressure or outright failure of the costly secondary and primary fuel pumps.

Continuous use of a dirty air filter leads to failure of the air flow sensor (which aids engine self-adaptation) and clogging or damage of the costly air intake throttle potentiometer valve. Engine oil grade and quality is an important factor in preventing premature engine failure as well as facilitating efficient performance.

Professional diagnostic inspection and assessment of the used car you want to buy is available and highly recommended. It is an opportunity to identify a vehicle that has damaged fuel and air intake system components or any other hidden mechanical problems such as mileage reversal, major accident concealment, corrosion damage and engine or transmission mechanical damage. This service is available. cost you about Shs100,000.

  • Two men found dead near Museveni's Kisozi farm

    GOMBA. Residents of Kawuula villages, Kisozi parish in Gomba District were on Tuesday left in panic after two bodies were found near President Museveni's Kisozi farm.

    Mr Yazid Male, the LCII Chairman Kisozi parish, said the deceased; Steven Kasibante, a farmer at Kawuula B cell and his colleague only identified as Kaliisa, a resident of Kawuula A cell, were hacked to death by unknown assailants on their way home from Kawuula Trading Center on Tuesday night.

    "They were killed because the security situation in our area is appalling. Can you imagine that we don't have any single policeman despite the fact that we are near the President's farm in Kisozi!" Mr Male said on Tuesday morning.

    Mr Muhammad Sserwadda, the LC1 chairman of Kawuula B cell, said he learnt of the double murder at about 4.30am after being informed by one of his neighbours.

    "The killers chopped the bodies of the deceased into pieces as if they were chopping goat’s meat. I informed the police but unfortunately, their sniffer dog failed to trace the killers because the scene of the crime was already tampered by crowd," Mr Sserwadda added.

    Mr Robert Kuzara, the Gomba District Police Commander, described the murder as barbaric. He said police were hunting for the suspects to apprehend them for prosecution in courts of law.

    "We are handling the situation and I appeal to the residents to be calm as our offices continue to investigate the case," he said.

    However, residents blamed their leaders and security organs over failure to give them maximum protection. They also blamed this unending insecurity to the influx into their area by unknown people.

  • UNBS starts probing reports of fake eggs on the Ugandan market
     The Uganda National Bureau of Standards (UNBS) is investigating allegations of fake eggs on the Ugandan market.

    UNBS spokesperson Godwin Muhwezi says the bureau has received a report that fake eggs are on the market and investigations have commenced.

    Muhwezi says the bureau will issue a public statement after investigations into allegations that certain dubious individuals based in Kawempe have been manufacturing fake eggs for sale.

    A consumer of eggs on the market will have to rely on basic checks like shaking the egg to ensure they are buying a real egg. This is difficult when the consumer is purchasing a tray of thirty eggs.

    UNBS reports that Uganda produces more eggs than Kenya and Rwanda. Reports of fake eggs on the Ugandan market could adversely affect this burgeoning sector of the informal economy.

  • Locals shun RDC’s security meeting over untamed theft

    BUKEDEA: Aggrieved locals in Bukedea town council on Sunday boycotted a security meeting called by the area RDC over rampant theft cases that have left many people counting losses.

    The security meeting called by RDC Ramazathan Walugembe was geared towards identifying gaps that thieves who have broken into over 10 shops and several homes in the last two months, use.

    Mr Walugembe said he was disappointed by the boycott.

    “The essence of this meeting was to liaise with the people and have police work towards arresting suspects. Now that they have avoided this important meeting, how can we have the matter of insecurity solved?” he asked.

    Mr Walugembe said there is no way theft can be eradicated in Bukedea if the locals don’t cooperate with security agencies.
    The area LC1 Emokori ward, Mr Moses Okurut, said only 28 people attended the meeting out of possibly 1,000 in his ward.

    “Over time, the locals have pointed fingers at the police for not acting accordingly on suspects involved in these robberies. To me, that was the cause of the boycott,” he explained.

    He said two weeks ago, thugs broke into shops in the trading centre and took off with unspecified amounts of money. 
    However, Mr Michael Etiang, one of the locals, said such meetings are of no value.

    “All that is left is mob justice. When a thief is got in action, the solution is to eliminate him/her, and when we do this repeatedly, the numbers will reduce and we will secure our town,” he said.

    Mr Etiang said in most cases, thieves are arrested but released from police custody before appearing in courts of law.
