First of all, we want to know how many of you have tried the Magnetrap?. Let’s share with us about Magnetrap if you already use it.We want to know whether it give positive impact or not for your car. From what we know, the Magnetrap works by trapping metal particles to the magnetised oil filter canister.This is the first stage of filtration before the remaining particles are filtered by the oil filter elements.Research shows that Magnetrap is able to remove 99.95 per cent of metal elements in the engine oil.
The Magnetrap is unique. It creates a focus beam inside the canister, thus making it more efficient. It is manufactured with the Neodymium super magnet which can withstand heat of up to 250 degrees Celcius.This additional magnetrap which sticked around the oil filter is to double trap the metal chips (mostly produce by wear and tear) within the oil during it’s filtration through the oil filter.

Magnetrap installed by Perodua SC.
I got this magnetrap stick on my Myvi’s oil filter without my knowing it during the normal maintenance at Perodua SC. Because I found it in the bill only when my mom shown it to me. So I immediately have a look at the engine bay and found that the plastic ring getting fallen from the oil filter. As I think, if I continue to drive the car without check it out, the Magnetrap will definately missing and I don really have a chance to view it for the first time.
I have this issue report to the Perodua HQ by email them the photo of Magnetrap as well as the receipt issued by SC. (Thanks to Perodua for the very fast responce)
The HQ’s officer ask me to send my Myvi back to the workshop for checking & refund. She explained that the Magnetrap is not a Perodua’s products and it is not recommended to install to Perodua’s car by Perodua. But it is really scary to visit the SC again because don’t know what will happen to my myvi if they found me report it to the Perodua HQ. So the next thing I asked the HQ’s officer regarding the action will Perodua taken against this kind of thing, but unfortunately this is out of the HQ’s officer rights.
Hope so the neccessary action will be taken agains this kind of issue in order to protect all the Perodua’s customer. So beware of this non-perodua’s products when you have your car service even at the Perodua’s SC.
