    Exclamation Honda City 2006 Cold Crank Startup.

    Recently bought a ride..
    Honda City 2006
    Its 79k driven
    Changed Engine oil to Zic a+
    Took it to Honda Sharahfaisal for complete engine tuning and checkup. All was good.
    Changed brake pads.
    Full brake service
    Full engine tuning with throttle body cleaning.
    Spark plugs cleaned

    Thats all good news
    here comes the bad one.

    When i start the caar in the morning it starts in 4-5 self turning.
    After start the rpm doesnt hold and keeps on dying i have to press the pedal.
    I get a cranking noise as if the engine is running dry
    After 30 secs. the rpm goes stable and car comes back to normal.
    no issues after that all day if i am driving it with a 2-3 hrs gap.

    Can anyone advise whats the issue.

    Honda company tuned the car on petrol they said we dont do cng.
    I got it tuned from a reputable shop on kda r/a north nazimabad.
    when the car is on normal temp. no issues with rpm or anything with ac on.off

    Its just the startup thats bothering me..
    Also the engine check light comes on when on cng
    stays off on petrol

    Kindly advise what to do..
    Jazzak Allah

    if you are using the car on petrol only and facing this problem, it can be a problem in your fuel line, most probably some injector is blocked the fuel pump isn't working properly, causing less fuel to the engine when car is started

    if your using CNG aswell then the problem is with the tuning, visit your mechanic again and get it properly tuned

    Got it tuned on petrol from honda sharahfaisal its smooth on petrol no issues at all. on cng also its smooth no issues its just the startup.
    The car starts on petrol as you know its efi then when you press the pedal once it converts to cng.

    cold startup is the issue. can it be cuz of oil ? i only got this issue started when i changed the oil. when i bought the car it was good on startup as well with old oil. only faced this isssue after oil change. I used Zic A+

    Try using Liquimoly Injector Cleaner to Sure that injectors are clean If problem remain there change engine oil to Havoline 20W-50 as many car owner use havoline (as it is not so costly may be in your case previous owner was also using some 20W-50 oil) so thicker oil may stick there and car will start normally .And for Check engine light if car is not equipped with tracker switch off car remove battery negative terminal for 5 mins re install it so ecu will reset and check light will vanish,if not get a computer checkup for your car...........Drive safe.

    get the fuel pump and fuel line checked, there is definitely some problem with the fuel delivery to the engine, try going to honda sharah faisal again for that....can't be any other problem

    When i turn the self it doesnt start and when it does it dies almost instantly before converting to cng.

    They did not adjust the tappets i think..

    Thanks for all the suggestions Above. A fellow member suggested an outlet in gulshan Block 7. Named. Cars-Clinic. Person Responsible Vicky.

    I went there today afternoon and got my car checked on Computerised Scanner and it was the tappet adjustment plus when they opened the head it was not a good sight as 2 rockers were jammed well all was not that bad and Vicky did the job with utmost professionalism and i got my plugs changed and tuned on petrol and car is now smooth and running great...

    I must say it was job well done and i am pretty satisfied with the work done by Cars-Clinic. I am a customer now Thanks to @adeel.khan45

    Who recommended Cars-Clinic. Thanks bro.

    Driving towards sharafaisal on Rashid minhas road, take a left right after the NIPA bridge... there is a mosque on the right and car clinic is on the left side. There is a puncture wala at the turn on the main road and padesterian bridge on top.

    Its a good workshop, goes by the book. Recommended.
