    Default Air controller in Khyber or he ripped me off?

    Guys i finally went to the mechanic for my air flow headache...

    He told me that they do a specific AIR CONTROLLER adjustment ... for CNG cars.....to optimize fuel air ratio.... seperate from tuning...... (which i had done last week)... for Rs300.

    Then all he did was change the air filter (1 week old!)... clean out the venturi area.. cleaned spark plugs... opened the the gas supply pipe... did something in the cng kit and readjusted the timing belt (adjusted last week)!!

    In short I think he ripped me off !!
    I had it tuned last weeek! He also said he put in some extra parts ... (which remain invisble to me)

    Anyone else know of this AIR CONTROLLER thing?
    its a khyber by the way.

    Thanks

    You learned a valuable lesson in Rs. 300. Must be someone you don't go to very often. Also, always purchase parts by yourself or when the mechanic is in front of you. Stick with him (show him you want to learn) and thus monitor him closely when he's working on your car. Argue when he wants to try out something that doesn't make sense to you.

    My workshop charges just rs 50 for the jobs you have mentioned and 100 rs for full tuning.
    Be polite on the road. Always give way to others, particularly ambulances and pedestrians.

    Thank you all for replying....

    Suppose u just can't trust anyone these days .

    he was the last mechanik on earth i expected to rip me off...

    and thats cuz he's no off the road quack...

    i mean the only mechanic i've met in years, who has mechanical diagrams posted on his walls (instead of Salman Khan posters)..

    has himself done some diploma in automotives..

    very very sophisticated outlook

    understands the purpose of radiator fan thermostat control...


    and finally a Foot long beard !

    Imean if u can't trust a guy like him, who can u trust??

    but i guess once a crook always a crook!

    I mostly keep my car right under my nose when at a mechanic ... but in this particular case... a gentle man came up to me ... immensely interested in buying my ride so i had my attention diverted for a little marketing ..:d

    anyway... thanks for your help everyone... Rs300... small amount lost.. Big lesson learned

    @ vk
    .. don't worry, very remote probability that any Pakwheeler would ever venture in that part of the city...

    me and my friends like to call it the last road to civilization... its located way way north of karachi... right beside the mountain range stretching through hub to balochistan !...

    @ rozzz

    thank you for your generous offer, would really appreciate it... do you have it as a pdf?
