    Default Hello

    I am no expert on engines but I can understand how worried you must be about your dad alone in Pakistan and the car betraying

    I suspect it is the timing belt. It could also be backfiring of CNG and blowing up of air cleaner box which is quite possible.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    Correct me if i'm wrong, the engine series used in the 04 Corolla are timing chain based so them going bad at just 100K KM seems to highly unlikely. Maybe an oil change was skipped when mr driver to pocket some money .

    Options available:

    1) Rebuild engine
    2) Used (kabuli)

    oil changed was done timely
    the car was properly maintained
    we are the first owners

    there was some noise in the engine
    a mechanic said its due to cng.. but there is nothing much to worry

    Leaking oil... I think you may have cracked the engine block, although I don't think it's because of CNG

    I've had a friend crack a block in his Nova. The only way to tell the extend of the problem is to have a mechanic take apart the engine. Does the engine still start/run?

    Your best bet is to take it to a mechanic. (I'd suggest you take it to a native Canadian, I've had bad experiences with both Pakistani and Indian mechanics)

    Yes, first suspect is Timing Belt or Valves Stuck.
    Engine build up, You will have to get the lower crank case checked, if effects passed below piston any effect on engine body bcoz oil leaking is signaling.

    Well i dun think its a timing belt.

    Can be anything only after inspection you can tell.

    Maybe oil pump failed.

    Ask ur father to take it to a good mechanic, Tention kiss baat kee hai?

    Get it rebuild if you know a good mechanic otherwise same model ka qabli engine dal do.

    BTW this failure has nothing to do with CNG,
    Speed costs money, how fast can you afford to go.

    your engine has a timing chain not a belt - secondly, it could be many reasons - bad gasket causing hydrolock on startup and the conrods bending and eventually leaving the block
