    Default Santro Exec 2005 Overhaul Questions. Need Help!

    Hello guys,

    Thank you for stopping by and reading. My car, Santro Exec 2005 is reducing oil and emitting white smoke which usually is the sign of weak engine. I am a little confused and need your help.

    Though, the car is reducing oil and emitting white smoke but I can still see the water droplets coming out of exhaust which tells that engine is in good condition right? Also I dont feel any weakness in the engine while driving. Driving itself is not smooth as well. So, I am confused either to just go for valve job or get the complete overhaul done.

    Secondly, what things are included in a complete overhaul? Valves, pistons,... and? Also I would appreciate if you can recommend me a good Santro mechanic in Islamabad or Rawalpindi. How much a complete overhaul will cost? Hyundai Sawan Motors Rawalpindi gave an estimate of 65K which is a total ripoff.

    Thanks again for your time.

    PS: Anyone has idea how much front headlights would cost? Chinese or Taiwan ones.

    seems like a ring or valve problem. The drops of water from exhaust in winter does not prove that the engine is fine. Does your car have a problem in cold starts ? Does it blows oil in the air filter housing too? What is the current kilometers on your car ? If less than 1,00,000 then you should probably go for a ring or valve job. Complete overhaul is not required. If more than that or near 2,00,000 then may be it would require a complete overhaul. Its just an estimate. I could tell more by physically inspecting the engine. A complete overhaul would include replacing each part which needs to be replaced pistons,rings,valves and a head job. I personally dont recommend an overhaul in Pakistan. Very few people are able to rebuild good engines. i would go for a new block and a head.

    Thanks a lot. The car starts just fine. Oil in the air filter housing, I didn't notice anything there. Its dry. My car is 116K km driven. I guess, I should consult few mechanics and then decide whether to go for a complete overhaul or just get the valve and rings jobs done.

    Someone suggested me Crown Autos in G-6 Islamabad. Somebody has any previous experience with them?
