my cuore 2003 has gone through lot of probs. earlier one of plug was oil fouled so i installed an adapter. But the car never show any smoke except a little on cold start in morning or after standing lot of time. So i am thinking that plug would be fouled due to O rings . I have little leakages on tappet cover side because some part of tappet cover looks shiny oily after driving and can see some leakage behind the cover side i think near intake and a little towards distributor side. As i open the oil filler cap after driving some smoke comes out . And i had little decrease in radiator water that is filling in 2 weeks. Therefore i am thinking to replace tappet seals , O seals and other and also a good tuneup . Now i am confused about choosing mechanic. after searching lot of forums i got two ,three mechanic in my adjacency(North Nazimabad). One is in Gulshan in SHell pump near Ashfaq memorial hospital univesity road between hassan square and sir Syed uni and other is Shamim autos near azizabad Shell pump.
I want other experienced pakwheelers from Karachi like Xulfiqar,etc to share some good mechanics and help in this matter and if possible can i show my car to any experienced pakwheeler who lives in north nazimabad or adjacent. Replies needed
well poor fuel economy also 60-65 km in 6 kg gas. fan is direct and no thermostat i think
Sincere advice is to take it to Toyota Dealership as they deal for Daihatsu also. Get all of problems verified and see the difference. local mechanics are just like 123 they dont know anything. All they know is how to open the parts or destroy one's car. Check radiator for leakage. Replace tappet gasket usually known as tappet jane in desi terms and check other gaskets also. Get car fully tuned.
