    Default Prado 1KZ Tune up

    Hi

    I have a Prado 1997 3000cc - 1KZ-TE. Can somebody tell me how soon i should change my engine oil.

    Last time I got the oil/filters changed in June 2009, and used Liqui Moly Synthetic oil, but only used the car for 3000 km.

    I also had a problem with the fuel consumption, when i got the nozzles checked I found out that there was almost no pressure at all, so my mechanic serviced the nozzles and tested them. When installed i got a better fuel economy. Now again I feel that the fuel economy has gone bad. Can somebody tell me when should we change the Nozzles. Which is a reliable shop to get the nozzles from and how much do they cost in Rawalpindi.

    Hi Haris Naeem,

    For nozels and diesel pump related issue's, there is an expert in Pirwadhai bazar. His name is Haji Abdul Majeed. You can go to pirwadhai and ask any one.every1 knows him. He will fix the issue up for you.

    Regarding the fuel economy, it will give you 6 to 7 km/l within the city. I have kept prado for 5 times. and experienced the same economy for all.

    Rgds.

    @ Iftikhar Mohammad

    6-7 within city is excellent. I was getting lower than that. I go to Haji Iqbal - Royal Diesel in astabal, he is also very famous. I have got my nozzles changed lets see what difference does that makes. I will try it over the weekend and post the results here.
