    Default Corolla 74-Pick Problem on CNG

    I am a very proud owner of a Corolla 74 (will post the pics very soon). Purchased by my dad 33 years ago, overhauled just once in 1984, this is a rare piece of japanese craftmanship. Its 100% stock except a standard Lendi Renzo CNG kit. Since last one month I have noticed that the car has lost pick on CNG and the other cars keep overtaking me on GT road which is frustrating. May be my engine has gone weak and its losing some of compression, or some other reason? Is there any device available in market which can improve the pick of my car? Are there any latest models of CNG which can improve the pick of the car? Should I change the plugs or jets etc? will it effect my CNG consumption? Any good workshop in Rawalpindi/Islamabad or Lahore where I can get the car checked? Currently I am in Jhelum can any one nearby help me with valuable advice on the subject?
    Thanks, a brother in distress

    do you think I should try to change the look of the car? like adding skirts or spoilers etc? and also tell me can be converted into sporty version, I have heard that in USA corolla 74 is being used as Drag Car becoz of its heavy body and durability and endurance

    mmmmmmmmm well brother actually this car kept us serving and serving and serving for long long years without any problem at all, they say 'never change a winning team' and also 'nothing succeeds like success' so the fact is that this car's history goes goes long beyond things like disc brakes, power steerings, front wheel driving, radial tyres etc. This car is a 'blast from the past' a relic of the 70s, time preserved with lot of care, love and hard earned monetory resources. It never occurred to me and my dad that there can ever be a need to change the engine, even when petrol got expensive in 80s and 90s era we never installed a diesel engine (even though our friends suggested it at that time) we never replaced the engine, when CNG came I installed it as a test case and I found that this technology can be used with any major altercations to car's capabilities and we decided to go ahead with it. You know why this car looks so great today? because we kept it the way it was and never tried to fiddle with it much.
    I drive it on CNG as petrol is beyond my pocket but there is not much problem with that, the only problem is with the tunning and gas setting which got disturbed by me, also I am interested if some member can tell me that is there any equipment or technology with can increase the speed of the pressure with which this gas is thrown into the combustion chamber becoz this way it will consume less gas? I mean is there any technology available like emulator etc? plase advise me on the subject.

    no idea on the rearview mirrors bro... thats a beautiful beautiful car uv got there (MashAllah)... ANY modification wud be an injustice to it... just go for an overhaul or something... a set of lower profile rubber wud give it a much meaner look... that just my opinion tho!

    you are right bro, but its original tyres are no more available in the market, General tyres used to manufacture its original size tyres (non-radial) but now even they have stopped manufacturing it since last 4-5 years. I have been told some local companies are manufacturing these tyres but I didnt want to put them on this car, per force I gad to upgrade to 155 r80 13inch radials with these alloy rims, if i fitted 145 r 70 12inches the car would be so low that it would touch on every bump, waisay wat tyre number are you recommending?

    Nice ride
    Even if you are on the right track, you will get run over if you just sit there.
