    1. Whichever are specified in the owner's manual. If you don't have one, try to get one as it has a wealth of useful information that will help you in the long run.

    2. Have a trusted mechanic look it over and then go by what he says.

    3. Personally I would not recommend it, but your local conditions are different.

    4. Try to avoid deeper water anyway if at all possible. You can hold a lower gear in an automatic by selecting the 2 or L range on the gear selector.

    5. Keep it well maintained and in good tune, and drive it easy. That's it.

    Sir If NGK, BKR5EYA-11 is the no, if denso, K16R-U11,IK16,VK16 are regular, iridium power and tough with a gap of 1.1.

    Do not worry in rain water, car will adjust the gear according to speed or keep it in "L", that is 1st or "S" second gear, also good for climbing or towing, in Civic its "2", will lock the shift in 2nd gear, also good for acceleration.

    Keep the Car's electrical system in top condition, you cannot jump start it if its battery failed.

    Do not rest your foot on brake while accelerating and do not excessively change the shift positions, leave it in "D" and do not leave your foot of the accelrator while the gear is changing, like we do in manual cars, it will confuse the torque converter, keep steady acceleration, listen carefully to the reverse chime indicator and do not look down while shifting, while parking pull the parking brake first and then shift in "P" mode, in long traffic jams shift to "N" the clutch will disengage and save you some fuel.

    Get a 100K check done from Toyota Southern motors, will not cost much, they will check all filters, fluid, electrical, valve clearance, belts, brakes, fuel lines, A/C/heater, ECU etc.

    CNG is ok, get a nice EFI kit, if possible a sequential one with an inflex 50kg cylinder, get the work done by a good installer, I can recommend you one, keep your air filter and battery/spark plugs in top condition for CNG and run on Petrol after every 500km.

    And please do not drag with an EXI PROSMATEC, you will loose.

    And congratulations in the end, you have purchased a better car then a 0 meter XLI at half the price, believe me and take good care of it.

    do not leave your foot of the accelrator while the gear is changing, like we do in manual cars, it will confuse the torque converter, keep steady acceleration, listen carefully to the reverse chime indicator
    @959 - Can you kindly elaborate the highlighted part in your post above?

    Sir

    When I was new, I often accidently shift in "R" assuming the car will go forward.

    When the car is still accelerating torque converter locks up, if you will keep your foot pressing and un pressing in between, the car will have hard time to shift in a proper gear.

    @959 - Thank you !

    By reverse chimes I believe are only in corolla, or are they in Civic as well?

    That's not a big deal @bango.... let it go. after passing through R, lever has to cover a lot of distance to reach D. so it can never be confusing

    you are welcome, its also in EXI and VTI, the SE saloon and Altis has an angular shift pattern while Civic's has straight shift, Mercedes C Class also uses angular shift.

    Also an important thing is to wait untill the car stops completely and then shift to reverse, otherwise it can damage transmission, people use to shift down to "L" to use engine braking, though SE saloon and EXI have Rev limiter but this is not a good practice to do regularly.

    Keep the oil change, only Dexron II, III or VI, synthetic (if possible) which is compatible with Toyota's ECT. (read the box carefully) and do not trust on road side mechanics.

    Avoid to acivate, Overrdrive in cities.

    Do not put excessive weight or heat to the Auto shifter, it will get hot at continuous load or high RPM drivings.

    Dear Bango:

    - What do mean by saying Avoid Override, does it mean lower gears?

    and

    -No excessive weight or heat to the Auto shifter?

    Sir can you please please lend me your avatar and 200 more like that one.

    @saqibdawood<SCRIPT type=text/javascript> vbmenu_register("postmenu_2292636", true); </SCRIPT>

    Sir its me not Mr Bango.

    Do not let a person sit on the place between driver and front passenger on the shifter assembly, do not try to pull a Landcruiser or Mark 2 or heavy load.

    Overdrive is not suited for Karachi's conditions, leave it off, it will shift one gear up from the normal speed for cruising to keep RPM down, to cool engine and/or save fuel, only suited for glass smooth highways, it also robs/limits power from the engine.

    If you will constantly keep the car at high speeds or engine at high RPM, all clutches and transmission will become real hot, with excessive heat it will also shut the car down, let it cool before driving.

    "L" or "2" mode is good for snow startups or where traction is needed.

    Avoid changing shift patterns too frequently to avoid wear and tear and losening up.

    Regards

    Could you plz explain what are the benefits of angular shift pattern over the straight one or vice-versa?

    Sir

    Actually I do not know much about it but I personally prefer the Honda one, because what is the purpose of Auto if you are shifting in angular pattern, BMW also prefers that one.

    Audi uses the hybird one.

    Nice reply i agree with what you have said

    Cng runs good on Se saloon auto.

    one additional thing is that since it is your first auto car then do not operate the brake with your left foot.

    i have seen ppl operating the brake with left foot since there is not clutch to press. always use your right foot,

    that also goes for a manual car.

    if one shifts to reverse without letting the car totally stop you can hear a "thug" sound thats not good for the transmission.
    one can shift to D or 1st gear without letting the car stop.

    another thing i would like to mention is if you have pressed the throttle a little but then do not shift to reverse even if the car is stationay coz you will again hear the "thug" sound. leave the throttle before shifting to reverse
