    Default Cost of Engine Overhauling "santro"

    Hello everybody,

    i want comments on this topic please expert and already overhauling experienced members discuss.

    i have visited the Hyundai Twin City motors at I-10/3 Islamabad, they told me that the complete overhauling will cost you Rs. 45,000 including all charges. is these charges ok for a 117,000 Km driven santro club 2002 model.

    what is the cost of new engine?

    what you suggest for me during overhauling, what should i take care of? and what should i personally do during the overhauling process?

    which parts should i personally inspect and check that is there any need for overhaul? or they just .....you know.....


    in simple words what should i do personally to avoid any loss of money and loss of satisfaction and the work is also good, also the problem is get solved.

    Thanks a lot

    Well i dont think that santro would need full overhaul after 117kkm. Get it checked thoroughly and i think u would have to change rings, timingbelt, gaskit etc. And they would cost around 10 to 12k. However a full overhaul from a reputable mechanic with all new orignal spares would cost 27 to 32k including everything. I ran my santro 2001 for 139k and engine still gives water droplets. But that was without cng.

    why did they say you need overhauling ... smoke from exhaust or smoke(blow) from area where you put in engine oil (while engine running)? heavy sound from engine?

    Well if its decreasing oil that its time to rebuilt it.

    45 is a lot bcoz ur getting the work done from authorized dealer,

    In open market this price will come down to around 25 to 28 thousand if done properly and full overhaul.

    Your prob can be temp fixed by changing rings and getting the valve job done. if this is done properly than this can last for around 2 years or more. cost should be around 12 thousand.

    Ya ur car is touching 155km on motorway but its burning oil so it needs repair.

    If you have a good mechanic get it done from him tht will save u money but make sure he done a very good job, otherwise pm me i can refer you to my mechanic the work will be very gud thats for sure but hes in pindi on peshawar road.

    Just swap the engine. These overhauls never work. Even if they do (which is very very very rare), you don't get the satisfaction. Its never as good.

    i have done the valve job only, from I-9 Islamabad and the problem is solve completely, now no smoke and no oil decrease. i only replaced the valve seals, head gasket.

    the cost is as following

    Labor charges=1200
    gasket= 450
    valve seals=390
    kerosene oil for cleaning the engine= 90

    total= 2130 Rs.

    i think it is a reasonable charges, what you think? i very satisfied with the work.

    you can see the old and new valve seals and its shape as the old one is more open for the oil to leak and the new are well shaped.
    what you think for the valve seals of NOK is it good seals? i could not find better than these in that market
