    Default Cuore 2000 suspension, engine work

    I recently bought a used 2000 model cuore.it was checked by my friend & car electrician who told us about this car.i don't know about car history of repairs but body is good in shape.my friend checked body for rust& said OK while electrician recommended to buy saying if you spend 20-25K on car it will be fit.i bought car in 3lac 20 thousands.i took car to Toyota workshop for checkup.They told suspension needs work,front wheel bearing,left lower arm bush,tie rod work,steering boot,caliper kit,rear wheel bearing etc.Tomorrow they will tell me cost of new parts.Labour charges will be 4000 & steering reula repair will be 2000.‎
    Now about engine they told it is weak,needs overhaul,timing seal & some other seals are leaking,water is mixing with oil,crank sound on high acceleration.For engine work Toyota mechanic says if I purchase Toyota parts it will cost around 1 lac & if I fix deal with mechanic it will cost around 65K he will use kabli parts.
    Tyres also need to be replaced.‎
    I am learning driving these days.Please suggest how should I proceed.Keep learning to drive without any work on car ?Do suspension,wheels work first & engine in the end?any other suggestion.[IMG]Name:  uploadfromtaptalk1453910321766.jpg

    Continuation of previous post.................

    Last week I took my car to another workshop where they were offering free checkup.mechanic checked & advised to get work done of left wheel saying if not done early it can be problematic.His team then did work of bearing, left arm etc.i am attaching here images of his recommendations & work done.They charged only 2000 including work of kharadya.Today Toyota mechanic told me that work isn't done completely & nicely.Name:  uploadfromtaptalk1453911713581.jpg

    Who said to go to a dealership with an old car ?. In Pakistan Dealers are the masters to covert the brand new cars in problematic ones leave the old car alone. Get to any local good reputed workshop, research before buying the parts, take opinions from mechanics but do what ever you like the best because some mechanics will rip you apart if you follow them.

    Please check post #2 I have written I visited a workshop where they repair rescue 1122 cars,they advertised free checkup of cars.Now problem is main mechanic just inspects car & tells small mechanics to do work who aren't expert guys,if they cant tight a nut they try to hit it with hammers which adds on new problems.i went to Toyota for qualified mechanics & genuine spare parts but as recommended it is wise to find a reputed local workshop.

    sorry to hear about your problems .. i will reply to ur pm here
    -- it was a bad decision to buy a car in such condition
    -- second bad thing is to go to toyota motors and keep spending money as they advise .. toyota motors is not for old cars

    please go to few competent mechanics .. i can advise one but not on this foruim .. make a list of what all is to be done .. go to mkt and check prices of parts .. make an estimate of total expenditure .... suppose u get a total est of 100k .. add 10% for unforeseen ... now what will be ur car worth after spending 110k .. what is its worth now .. sell now if spending money doesnt raise price or shift to a better maintained car ... wheres ur friend who checked the car for u ? next time consult someone who really knows

    conclusion
    -- sell car and buy a better maintained car
    -- if not then get it repaired all at once but from a reasonable mechanic
    -- no engine replacement

    find my cell no in previous posts and contact me if u need my help ... best wishes

    My Advice In A Nutshell......The Idea Was Bad...Not Your Fault...Your Friend And That LeCTRESAN/Ustaad Who Said 25k Work Are Culprits...You May Have Not Know ABt Cars So You Took Advice..........

    Sell The Car If You Can't Afford To See Mechanic More Than Your Family Nor Have Time

    If You Can't....Get Ready To See Harsh Side Of Spending Money On Poorly Maintained Old Car ..FInd A Competent Mechanic Else Chances Are You 60-70% Spendings Can Go To Trash ...Even A Rebuild Engine......So Decide Wisely Before Jumping

    Never Every Visit TOYOTA With Such Old Car.....Unless You Plan To Install All New Parts Which No One Do As It Will COst Almost Equal To Price Of Car

    -- it was a bad decision to buy a car in such condition
    -- second bad thing is to go to toyota motors and keep spending money as they advise .. toyota motors is not for old cars

    please go to few competent mechanics .. i can advise one but not on this foruim .. make a list of what all is to be done .. go to mkt and check prices of parts .. make an estimate of total expenditure .... suppose u get a total est of 100k .. add 10% for unforeseen ... now what will be ur car worth after spending 110k .. what is its worth now .. sell now if spending money doesnt raise price or shift to a better maintained car ... wheres ur friend who checked the car for u ? next time consult someone who really knows

    conclusion
    -- sell car and buy a better maintained car
    -- if not then get it repaired all at once but from a reasonable mechanic
    -- no engine replacement

    find my cell no in previous posts and contact me if u need my help ... best wishes
    Thanx @Naweed @SER_GTR I will contact you Naweed sb for your sincere advice before any major work of car.
    A lot has happened after my that post in last 1-2 months.Car is running fine within city,didnt take it on a long route.Once engine became hot & mechanic did fan direct,also got radiator serviced then,gasket was changed too with non genuine one.For few days car was turning off when idling or when slowing down near speed breakers so electrician replaced the point too.Right front wheel was heating up so local shop mechanic changed caliper & after that master cylinder of brake.Front both wheels hubs were replaced at Toyota with kabli at cost of 5000/hub.Now car runs fine within city on 15-20 kilometers of my daily ride,still right front wheel is more hot on touching as compared to left side.i have more posts with some pics there too in thread Cuore fan club,some seals of engine leak too so a friend advised to get them changed & get pressure,clutch plates checked also gear oil & gear box for any leakage.Also I am going to replace all tyres with new General tyres as they aren't costly & brand new.I am also planing to get air conditioner running after service but that after work of engine seals leakage,electrician told it will cost around 4-4.5K on service of AC.Now it is a difficult decision to sell the car & get another one so I plan to keep it for 1-2 years if it run well without going to workshops often until I learn driving well & collect some more money for a newer model.Now I go to a local workshop mechanic for all mechanical problems of car.
    It was my mistake to go to Toyota for 1st car checkup,they are too costly plus they are used to see new engines of new cars so this old engine looks ancient to their eyes.‎
