    Default CNG maintenance weekend on my spectra

    This saturday i took my kia for CNG service after a long time. Service took place at Prime CNG by Mr. Sanaullah who has started his own work with this name after leaving job from Twin City Automobiles.

    He is very expert in Hyundai and Kia vehicles, although he is equaly good about other brands but i go to him specificaly because of his expereince with KIA

    CNG Cylinders were drained for any oil residue, CNG kit was opened up for cleaning as well. Finaly i took to Al MUbarik CNG on sunday for checking the computerised adjustments of Lambada controller which were undisturbed.

    Some pics

    Opening up the cylinder. Dont get jealous of the boot space in spectra please

    This one system of spectra is still outstanding and no other car except santro (again dean) offers such space efficient fitting of CNG cylinders. Excellent work, but car is still a flop

    I went after like a year or so
    Although such service is recommended after 6-8 months.

    Sanaullah is a little expensive, he charged me 700 Rs. for this service, reverse switch change and general check up.
    For other cars with simpler layout and better reputition charges are less

    fill gas from a good station and increase the service interval.
    symptoms: u find oil in regulator quite frequently and much earlier than u did before, so need to drain it from cyl too.

    spectra is damn good n spacious... the thing i like most is the way the tailgate opens.... gives u an all n all open area to put whatever n wherever u want

    When i got married in 2004, the groom's car was a spectra beautifully decorated with roses n tulips... Islamabad registered in rose-mist metallic colour... i remember there wasnt any hassle for us having 4 passengers comfortably adjusting in the rear seats.

    @spectra
    Spectra (1.6) when launched was 7.35 to 8 lac and as compared Kia Rio (1.4) is 9.99lac... which one do u think is a better launch?
    (i asked u this question in previous thread "Kia launch 3 new models but u dint replied so im asking it again)

    @555
    His workshop is opposite to body shop of Twin City motors. Name is Prime CNG.
    His phone number is 0333-5324149

    @Usman

    Rio will be a big flop. Spectra was a superhit of its time because of the price, looks and space but company was not able to service them properly which cerated a very bad name for it.

    Rio's launch is no way comparable to spectra.

    @Testdriver

    I bought the car the way it is. BTW i cannot differentiate which cylinder is for the master and which one is for the dame
    LOL

    700 doesnt sound very expensive to me...provided it is done once a year or so....plus...i believe nothing you spend on your car is ever enough if you love it...:-)
    I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it..and so restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions.
