    Default Cultus low top speed and low pick problem

    I have Cultus 2006 (non EFI) and it did around 150,000 km approx.

    The problems I am facing are:

    1. Low pick (acceleration). Engine sounds ok. But I feel that the car is moving like a dead man.
    2. Low top speed. On motorway (Isb-Lhr), it hardly crosses 100km/h at CNG. And max 120km/h on patrol on the straight road. And on slightly high road, dont ask.... its like 60km/h.
    3. Last week I went to hilly area (peer suhawa), the drive was really pain in the a$$. It gave me very tough time during the heights.

    I did 140 km/hr on CNG and 160 km/hr on Patrol before on motorway and drove to murree, azad kashmir and pir suhawa without any kind of problem !!!! but now it really sucks!!!!

    I just visited Suzuki 3S workshop and told them the 3 issues above. One of their technicians did a test drive. He also observed that the engine was vibrating when it started on patrol at just 1200 RPM. Anyways he told me that there is a problem with valve pressure. The valves are leaking and the pressure is not building up, that's why it is not giving max performance on pickup and top speed. Their supervisor also came and observed. They gave me an estimate of Rs. 29,000. Below is the list of things that need to be changed (if required), as it is an estimate only.

    • valve set
    • valve guid set
    • valve seal set
    • thermal state valve (std)
    • head gaskit
    • silicon tube
    • radiator service
    • timing belt + bearing

    The car had an accident from front around 6 months ago, so I assume that these might be the side effects of that accident + 150,000 kms driven.

    Did any one of you experience similar issues with Cultus?

    hmm... You bought the parts or mechanic bought the parts for you.
    Speed costs money, how fast can you afford to go.

    Well, I asked the mechanic to tell me and show me the damaged parts which required to be replaced. He showed me the damaged ones and called a spare parts shop. A guy from the parts shop dropped the parts at his motor bike. I did not buy myself, he arranged all the parts.

    The valves work was done by khiradiya at another shop. I could not see the work done myself, but I just trust my mechanic

    Did a test drive yesterday evening and now I am satisfied with the performance. Its like rebirth of the car.

    - plain road, isb highway, reaches 120 km/h with ease. And I can feel it can again reach at 140 easily on the motorways.
    - went halfway to peer suhawa, 4 or 5 steeps, it did it very easily. And I came back home with peace of mind

    Thanks to all the people who helped me here.

    Butterfly is a part of carburetor which is connected to the accelerator wire. it works like a center hinged door, pressing the accelerator opens it and by leaving it closes.
