    Default Performance Problem in Corolla Altis 1.8SR Cruisetronic

    Assalam o alikum brothers,
    i have Altis A/T cruisetronic 2010 model,,

    previously i had Toyota corolla Gli,2010 model and i recently shifted to altis.. i thought that there would be a huge difference in the speed and performance but honestly i am not that much moved with the performance, though the car pick is very good.. but gear shifting is not good, i mean the way my reborn used to get the shoot, this car doesnt.. the first gear goes upto 60 when i press the throttle hard while on highway i hit top 160 speed,

    which i did in my GLI too.. now whats the difference :-(

    let me knw that what could be my issue...

    The car have Cng installed in it, and yes one more thing.. i didnt found huge difference in Cng and Petrol....

    Cng is old one... that had manual knobe, now there is some LEMDA system cng.. which have automatic setting and all


    car milage is 65k km

    last question,, does Altis engine sound more then a Gli engine,

    i mean altis engine give VROOOM sound.. more its not dead silent as Gli was

    Need to knw specially from Altis owners

    Regards
    Zain

    Something seems to be wrong with it and it has something to do with cng. It should be faster then gli and should be as silent as gli, though you cannot compare it with civic as it is prosmatic and this is 4speed auto.

    the device is called 'Lambda advancer' & it is an automatic ignition advancer when switched to CNG , Lambda because it advances / reduces the ignition firing spectrum. Altis is (1ZR FE) 1.6 - Honda Civic is 1.8 please compare apple with an apple

    1ZZ-FE to be precise

    Nowadays it is not feasible of having CNG. Remove the kit. Get general check ups like tuning, brakes services. Then feel the difference.

    Regarding proformance altis is way better and should be quick than gli

    As far as sound yes altis has a bit louder engine reason os single muffler for a monster engine

    I have kept similar altis for about an year and in my opinion this car is bit over powered. And mine used to smoke almost every car reborn is not much quick but in long drives reborn performs better because of being 5 speed automatic unlike altis which is 4 speed trip tropic


    Also check it catalytic converter I migjt be slow

    yes the pickup is fantastic.. i mean as soon as i press the throttle the car moves like that it will fly, but then when it comes to speeding then its not that good as i expected!

    brother i knw that its not feasible to have a cng but i have to see my own pocket as well....

    from where do u recommend to get my car checked, toyota motors wont be touching CNG as they deal in petrol matters only..

    i mean they will tune my car on petrol only, i need to get my cng matter fixed as i drive my car mainly on CNG


    Toyota motors will charge me very high as i need to get my brakes checked, my car wheels are making some chuioooo noise when the car is running plus when i press the brake i can hear the voice of brakes...

    sir i was blown away with the pickup of my car, but i am not having that acceleration which i was expecting, i mean when i used to drive my reborn, i used to press the throttle hard.. and it used to feel like that someone is taking out my soul.. i dont get that feeling.. infact i feel like that i have just got the extra option, like optitron meter and all.. car engine is same

    Actually there is alot of difference in Gli and Altis in terms of performance. Gli is 2NZ and Altis is 1ZZ-FE. 1ZZ-FE is a good powerful engine can breath easily till 300k km w/o giving any problems if properly maintained. Now coming to the problem take you car to Toyota 3S get it completely tuned. Replace all necessary parts which are required. Replace plugs to iridium and use better wires contact Jz for this. Civic reborn has K18A having 140HP stock whereas altis is 130HP. Manual civic is much fast then altis. Get your car tuned put in iridiums use better wires use synthetic oil. I had 2006 Altis and let me tell you it was fast and i mean it. We took it till 200Km/h w/o any problem. And corolla has engine noise 2NZ gli being small engine has less noise and civic is also quite. Anyways hope you get the point.

    the main culprit here is CNG.. altis has a CVT box which tends to wear-out while u use it with CNG.. cars with CNG nd CVT boxes even sell for less then their actual market price.. if i were u i wud've sell this car nd get another 1 coz once damage by CNG is done there is no going back..
