    Default Mehran water body problem

    Hey guyz, just wanted to ask somthing about mehran engine.





    Actually, my younger bros mehran was leaking water from near left front tyre. somewhere below belt areas...





    I asked a mechanic, he said engine kholna hoga!





    we ignored it & kept running the car..





    now, the same area is producing some metal to metal friction sound like the one when breaks are completely finished.


    every day we pour water in the bottle but it leaks out ...





    I now asked the mechanic, he says its the WATER BODY PROBLEM...


    whole engine will be opened, & water body willbe replaced.


    will tak 3 to 4 hrs like Rs. 2400 cost on it...





    I wanted to ask that do you guyz think it is the same problem?


    & will that cost me the same ?





    & if it is the case, where should I go for the engine work in Islamabad?





    Please guide me for best work & best price in Islamabad.

    Nah need not to open the whole engine. Mechanics love to tell us scary stories. For water body/ water pump in a Mehran all they will need to do is open the timing belt side of the engine. It is a 2 hour job and should cost under 1500 including parts.

    (Do correct me if I am wrong)

    @ Speedoholic! Now that is a very tricky thing... recommending a mechanic is not a 'recommended' thing to do all i can say I have been going to this or that person for so many years and have no BIG issues with him

    my experience with that particular person could be very good and who know things go wrong for you aur phir you gonna blame me for that... I hope you understand what I am trying to say.

    @ Speedoholic! You can try your luck, Saleem is the name. I know this person and have been going to his place for the past ummm 15 or more years. And I TRUST him.

    His workshop (Saleem Autos) is in Karachi Company. There is a road going downwards just beside the Inter-city bus stand, as soon as you enter the large parking area/ workshops.

    @ emawais! Thank you very much for the support.
