    Default Platz 2003: Experts' help required

    Recently the acceleration of my Platz 2003 has decreased and it does not gain speed. My car went to around 80Km/h in second gear when pushed but now hardly goes to 40km/h. The engine makes a lot of noise but not speed. I went to CNG mechanic for tune up, he told me the clutch plate and the pressure plate need to be changed. As a short term measure he changed the plugs to BOSCH 4 point ones. I also got the car checked from my auto mechanic, he too told me to get he plates changed. I checked the cost of clutch+pressure plate which is around 8500 here. The total expenditure including the labor charges is 10500. My driver believes that there is nothing wrong with the car even though I can feel severe performance degradation (The drive is even bad then a Mehran).

    What do you guys suggest? I am only hesitating to go for it wondering if its really the plates or something else. Looking for some expert advice.

    FaToNe......

    The CNG consumption has automatically increased as more acceleration is required to drive the car
