A forumer dawn at the Perodua Myvi Forums has alerted us of a problem with the Perodua Myvi rear drum brakes.
Apparently something is wrong with the left rear drum brake, causing the handbrake to have not much gripping power when parked on a slope. Please be very careful when parking your cars on hills and roads which are angled. Your hand brake does not really work. I parked my car last night, pulled my hand brake and let go of my front brakes. At the same time, I reached out to get my cell phone from the holder, my car hit the wall. Later, I go find my friend and we test.
I pull the hand brake, but one person is still enough to push the car and the car rolls.
Damn it. Forumer songfui81 also mentioned that Perodua has been alerted of this problem with the left rear drum brake. For Perodua Myvi automatic transmission owners, please shift your gear to the P position when parking to take advantage of the gearbox parking lock in addition to your handbrake.
For manual transmission owners, put your gear into first gear on uphill slopes or reverse gear on downhill slopes when parking. Update: Perodua Myvi owners have experience some other problems.

Hello All - When my car was parked, it got flooded, and the water came into inside. I didn't start the engine, and it was towed to perodua.
After I collected, and drove to Genting.
How to Prevent Automatic Transmission Gearbox Failure
It impact every time the gear move to higher one, the car choked. They want to change the Gearbox wire first, if it can't help, then it needs to change ECU they are still not sure where the issue is. However, they don't have a stock on the wireand even in Kilang doesn't have as well. Hence, I need to wait. The car is almost parked there for one month. I can't tahan, I collected, and asked them to let me know if the wire is ready.
When I drove back home distance is 10 kmthe AT indicator in dashboard didn't turn on, and I didn't find any issue when Gear is moving to higher gear. I would kindly like to ask your thought on this - 1.
Why the issue is like intermittent, sometime it turn up, and sometime not? Is this due somehow the wire isn't dry properly, and it needs time to let it dry? Should I still go to change the gearbox wire? Or I just need to wait for another time since it needs time to dry properly?
Or I should change the wire? I am bit mad due the wire has no stock for almost 1 month, some more this car is a local car, it is not something that it needs to import from overseas. Do you have any idea if I can check by my own which perodua workshop has this wire? Or do you have a contact number for perodua HQ workshop that I can check for this wire?
Do you have any idea how to fix it? Since I am already very frustrated on this? Do you know where the perodua workshop who has good mechanic?
I would like to have 2nd Opinion.In short, Perodua would be in a tough position if they were to make a Myvi GT. The Myvi has matured from being a compact city car to something that can stand up to more traditional offerings — and anyone who has spent a proper amount of time in one can attest to this. But the Myvi GT remains a highly appealing proposition. As a Myvi owner myself, I know full well what the car is capable of in stock form, and how much further it can be taken with a couple of aftermarket tweaks.
Beyond the aggressive looks of the Myvi GT, Perodua also slapped on some aftermarket suspension and big Brembo brakes under inch wheels. The seats are also a welcome change from the bench-like position, even if they are essentially re-upholstered SSCUS semi-bucket seats.
AUTO gearbox problem
Now, how much would it cost to make one? A RM 10, premium over a top-spec Myvi 1. Think again. For RM 55, you get the full-fat version of the Myvi with all of the bells and whistles. Unfortunately, this is where the price starts to go up — and quickly. For wheels, inch Konig or Advantis do the job perfectly well, retailing for around RM 2, a set.
In enough volume and with no margins, Perodua could probably source them for RM 1, a set — which is a pretty good deal for inch wheels. The brakes are going to be especially painful to source. There are plenty of aftermarket options, but one good example is Wilwoods which go for around RM 4, for the largest front set that will fit very comfortably under inch wheels.
The rear set is a good RM 3, as well, and both prices would be inclusive of the brackets necessary to mount these brakes to the standard Myvi knuckles. Pricing for basic height-adjustable suspension is cheap at RM 1, or so, although they will need to be dialled in and the downside is a higher service frequency.
Even so, the price now stands at RM 65, — and this is before we take a look at aesthetics. Front and rear bumpers, as well as side skirts, can be mighty expensive if not produced in large volumes. On the inside, the bare minimum to accomplish Myvi GT status would be the seats — a pair of semi buckets with Myvi GT upholstery, along with necessary brackets for installation will come to RM 2, but will allow front occupants to stay in their seats during aggressive manoeuvres.
The red trim up front seems superfluous, but would hardly cost a thing to add. This hypothetical Myvi GT has to be more than a look-fast, corner-fast kind of car.It is very easy to kill an automatic gearbox especially when you have increased horsepower.
More often than not, automatic transmission gearboxes fail due to heat, which breaks down the ATF and stresses the gearbox. Gearboxes are expensive, why take the risk with an ATF with the wrong specification.Tips Mudah Repair Masalah Gear Perodua
Do you want to believe them, or the people who build your gearbox and formulate the ATF. Change the correct ATF every 20,km.
So change it more often. It is not necessary to do a flush as you would replace almost all the ATF when you change the ATF filter mentioned in the next point. The filter is really cheap, around RM30 for an aftermarket one. I will change it every 80,km or 3 years, whichever comes first.
Installing an ATF cooler will extend the life of the ATF, and more importantly prevent the torque converter from overheating. As an example, Proton Perdana was notorious for its automatic gearbox incinerating itself, and its facelift model came with an ATF cooler from the factory.
Tukar Gearbox - Benarkah satu kemestian???
The benefits is that as the engine warms up, the coolant in the radiator will warm up as well, which heats up the ATF to operational temperatures. The major downside is that in the event of an internal leak and coolant mixes with ATF, it means bye bye gearbox. Just make a habit to check the ground under the car for any suspicious looking liquids.
Hopefully these steps will help to ensure your automatic transmission serve you for years to come. Or u can tell me where i can get the A4B-D1. Please tell me i can easily get it. Normally there is one bolt at gear box to determine the atf oil is enough after pour from stick yellow stick. Can you show me where is that bolt on? It is in there. Have YRV-F. NOT Turbo.The shift selector cable puts the transmission into the proper gear, which is indicated by the shift selector that it has been moved by the driver.
Automatic transmission vehicles normally have one cable that runs from the transmission to the shifter assembly, while manual transmission vehicles have two.
They both have the same signs when they start to go bad. If you suspect yours is failing, watch for the following symptoms. If the shift selector cable is going bad, the indicator light or cable will not match the gear you are in.
For example, when you move from park to drive, it may say you are in park. The cable can stretch over time, so it does need to be replaced over the lifespan of your vehicle. When this happens, contact a professional mechanic to have your shift selector cable replaced. As the shift selector cable stretches, you may not be able to remove the key from the ignition or turn the vehicle off. This is due to the key not being able to be turned unless the car is in park on some vehicles.
When this occurs it can be dangerous as you may not know what gear you are in as you are trying to turn off the vehicle. This can make your car unpredictable and become hazardous to yourself and those around you and should resolved as soon as possible. If your vehicle starts in any other gear besides park or neutral, there is a problem. It could be with the shift interlock solenoid or with the shift selector cable.
A mechanic needs to diagnose this problem to differentiate between the two as they can have similar symptoms.
How Much Would It Cost To Make a Perodua Myvi GT?
In addition, there could be an issue with both parts, so they need to be replaced before your vehicle can properly function again. After you start the vehicle and try to shift it into gear, if the gear selector will not move then there is a problem with your shift selector cable. The cable could be broken or has stretched beyond repair. This prevents the transmission from having the leverage needed to change gears.
The car will not be able to be used until this problem is solved. They make replacing your shift selector cable simple because their mobile mechanics come to your home or office and fix your car.

The car comes in the usual 1. For what I think, this car, if it were to be imported, would be a force to reckoned with as it is so value for money that in the high spec guise, shames the Mitsubishi Space Star other than its brand name.
Moderators, if you all feel that there should not be a all new Myvi thread for the all new Myviplease kindly transfer it to an old topic. With COE costing more than the cost of the car, profits will be razor thin and it would be interesting to see how this model can succeed in Singapore.

Perodua Myvi in Malaysian Talk. Recommended Posts. Posted November 12, Seems like nobody started on the Perodua Myvi after searching through the folders. However, the new car is going to rectify all those flaws ,making the wrongs right. If there is anything to add in after which, I will add in here.
Share this post Link to post Share on other sites. See what Perodua Sinagpore can offer. Posted November 13, edited. Posted November 13, Bezza so few sales how is the more expensive Myvi going to move?
Myvi quite a good car to drive. Bezza sales already like crap, how's myvi gonna sell. Korean cars are going for 80k with proven reliability over the years. Myvi gotta go below 70k for people to even take notice. What they could do is to do buyers a favour by changing the transmission to a cvt. At least it makes the car more up to date.
Even the Vios and the swift changed their choice of automatic gearboxes. Perocom would most likely sell the 1. Posted November 16, The Myvi's interior really put some of its similar priced rival to shame. Posted November 17, Great design.

Hi Guys, after been searching high and low for a solution i finally have an answer for all of those who suffer from MYVI gear box problems. Whereby if you put into Reverse-gear then never locks straight away Well if you were to go to a workshop or Perodua workshop they will insist that the whole gear box should be changed, correct? I have a solution, I managed to figure out the problem and be able to save you guys loads of money.
It's a total overhaul of your gearbox instead of changing it. Plus this foreman of mine is a long time friend and also ex-perodua mech,who has branched out and opened his own shop. So he knows the in and out of it. If there's anything do call me at or pm. I'm returning him a favour and i know alot of you guys suffer this same problem.
