I have toyota vitz model 2006, there are a few things and issues that I need advice on.
I bought this car on 26K mileage and now it is around 46K mileage. From the start the engine always gave knocking sound, which was quite high in the beginning, but on recommendation of Toyota motors I used Caltex petrol which reduced the knocking alot, it still knocks but only sometimes. So first I need to know how I can get rid of this knocking sound.
My second problem is that when I went to murree and on steep roads, the knocking was loud and my car gave out black smoke from the exhaust pipe. I also saw that the engine oil had reduced after about 3K Km. I use ZIC A+ as engine oil. I get the oil changed at around 4K to 5K. I have shown the car to a few mechanics and they say that the piston rings might be weak and I need to get them replaced.
Also the check engine light comes on sometimes, but it goes away again, do you think this could be an electrical fault?
Can anyone give me some expert suggestions on this and also give answer to my questions below.
1) Where do you recommend that I can get 100% genuine parts for vitz in Islamabad/Rawalpindi besides the toyota dealership.
2) Does anyone know a good vitz engine mechanic in islamabad/pindi
3) Where can I get computer/scanner checking of my vitz besides the toyota dealership?
Expert suggestions are welcome.
