    Hey Guys. I just came bak from Peer Sohawa... w went on two cars my spectra n dads sportage... i got my petrol tank half filled i case i needed to switch over... we were five people in spectra so it wuz full... i wuz following sportage and when the "charhaye" started i thought i shud switch over to petrol but no i didnt needed to and I went to the top through out on CNG n not over revving in 1st but comfortably in 2nd gear... my dad accelerated after a sharp turn i cud see tht from the black smoke n i accelerated too i wuz the second gear nd when the RPM crossed 3500 i really felt a damn power under my foot n sportage wuzunt extending the distance ny more... well tht wuz one of the stories... wht im amazed abt is tht we went all the way long to the top on CNG wid a loaded car nd absolutely without any compromise on power as i explained... for me its quite a big deal... so hv ny of spectra owners experienced it before me?

    I drive my spectra on that road almost every week.
    Not for past some weeks though.
    I seldom switch to petrol...only when overtaking some stupid small car, stuffed with people, driving on CNG and instead of going forward, coming back...!

    Dude...wanna sell your spectra...?

    AOA to all.

    i have a spectra 2001 model. i intend converting it to CNG, but the problem is that where ever i go the mechanic complains that he cannot assure any amount of performance since the car is known to back fire when converted to CNG, also they say that the car looses its tunning very soon. kindly help me out i am a bit stuck with this....

    I am currently trying to troubleshoot a spectra automatic which refuses to start. Its fuel stop is blown because some petrol stop guy stole the fuel cap and it rained heavily in last few days. Fuel pump costs 8k and we are changing it now to make it work. I tried with the fuel pump of my own car and it has started.

    My spectra is giving me trouble running on petrol. The acceleration is way too low, even less as compared to CNG. Also, problem of missing is there along with backfire once in a while (it never backfires on CNG). I am not sure what the issue might be. Earlier I thought it could be a bad fuel issue but I have refueled many times without results. I also got to fuel filter checked and that is fine.

    My hunch is that it might be a faulty fuel pump issue but I am not sure how to get it tested. Any ideas?

    If it is running fine on CNG then the fault is not electrical. It is Related to Fuel supply system or Injectors.

    I also faced slight problem of same nature but it has been resolved after fuel filter change.

    Get fuel pressure test done from the dealer, if the needle shows a drop with revs. It means pump is not throwing fuel as per requirement or there is a blockage in the line or injectors.

    Thanks a lot for the reply Saquib bhai.

    Yup, the fuel pressure test indeed shows a drop in the needle when car is revved. This will have to be troubleshooted to pin point the exact fault?
