    Cool Mehran Experience Tips and suggestions

    AOA
    i have owned mehran for 7 years almost and most of the stuff has gone wrong so if some one has an issue with mehran he can ask me here i will be glad to help a mehran brother to put him out of this misery as mehran is a car that can make u go mad and pull ur hair a part KIDDING
    so some one has problem post it here i will do my best to come up with a solution
    Problem no 1: Starting in winters is a hell if ur getting late dhicka will do the trick but u need to check few things Park the car in night on petrol,Open the Self as mechs call it SULF and check barrings in it they are copper barrings and if needed so replace them else ask the electrification to clean the self,and reinstall it
    then check the battery DON'T add water over the High level mark as in winters problems is that Engine OIl freezes or gets thick and it needs extra kick from the battery
    other things related are clean the plugs and change the plug wires possible to 8mm ones and clean or replace the Point which comes in Distributor
    also check the
    +ve wire of the self is Tight to battery as most of the time its a small thing which makes u go mad

    PRoblem no 2
    :
    Axel and CV joints so CV joints are too weak in mehran and 3 years of rough driving can kill them and when replacing CV joints never go for a kabuli AXEL as they tend to be repaired most of them use Chinese ones they work good and tell the Kharaiya to never temper with the length of the Axel in fitting of the Cv joints the length should be as OEM specs
    and if the Straight joint is worn out replace it with Cross and the Cross kupa but be careful for length and the kuppa pick the kuppa which has the smoothest end which goes in to the Gearbox as it can damage Axel seals in gear box
    always use the Original Rod of ur car as its build for ur car a mechanic will suggest u to replace whole AXEL with Kabuli but its from an older model besides most of them are repaired
    Issue in top speed and pick
    when i first got the chance to Floor mehran on M1 with iridium plugs and 8mm wires bought from Shoba i was really Disappointed with results car was hitting 110km/h MAX on petrol i was so mad but in this i noticed a few things which were wrong in my car
    1 Cv joint of right axel
    2 Cylinder Packing it made dar dar sound like old taxies after 80Km/h mark
    3 and wires from shoba had no life in them they were used and abuses
    so excpet for CV joint i changed wires to new 8mm which are cheaper then shoba wali Kabuli wires and Cylinder Packing plus whole exhaust had wholes so repaired it all got her tuned from ENERCON center and after a few days i hit the M1 again plus similar iridiums were in it and this time results were amazing mehran ha 165/70/12 tires and speedo was showing 130 so u can guess what it was in real speed as big tires cause speedo to give an error 100 in speedo = 112.2 Km/h in real

    Ignition Coil replacement


    as most of mehrans have OIL ignition coil which Comes FF and it sucks it has a limited life and mechs do make a mistake when coil dies they assume that head gasket is gone and which leads to other problems.replace coil with magnetic coil which Alto and Cultus use its way better and gives an edge in starting costs were low when i did this 600 for the coil brand new but now i herd its for 1500 or something comes in a triangle box.

    Front Guarder o
    r GADRI

    as time passes Front Guarder or GADRI become rusted and weak which causes problems for mountings of the front jumping rod a new Front Guarder or GADRI is about 1000 and 4 bolts hold it in place on a non accidented car its not a big job Front bumper needs to be opened and jumping rod and 4 bolts and its the reverse process while fitting but a car which had some accident then its a job in which a denter makes some $$$$ but there is always a way around intall gaudri and all stuff and see if there is some difference on alingment of bolts of front engine mounts cut a whole with welding torch in the engine mounting plate and its easy and also make adjustments to the jumping rod u can make tires placement in the wheels where they will fit but go for some good dentor so frame can be pulled out will cost more but its the right way
    installation of Foam in Doors to reduce sounds
    its a simple task install some pieces of foam behind the lock wires and door handle wires inside the door
    open the inner door covers first take the hadle out its held with 2 screws then take the cover of handle out held with single screw then the window winder take it out but it requires a trick rool it to a point u can see the joint end of the pit take it out with a screw driver and window winder will be free
    then take the cover our its held with clips but don't put much pressure on them they can break after its out check all bolts and screws inside the doors if they are loose tight them and hit the door with ur fist so u can hear sounds now with other hand start detecting what wire is loose cut some foam and put it between the door and line
    by this u can reduce 90% of sounds in mehran
    Tire and rim size
    now we see many Kewl boys put 15s on a mehran but this little car never needs huge wheels
    best size for mehroo is 145/70/12 and 155/70/12 no other these two are best sizes

    @ekdrifter,

    Item costs if u know please.

    Bumbers, Lights, Dash board, Rims steel ones factory fitted ones, engine over hauling, brake-Servo system,
    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    bro i know few stuff prices
    1 bumpers new shape 1200 front and rear medium quality
    2 new shape head lights low quality 1000-1200 medium quality 1500 Genuine 3.5K
    a suggestion visit insurance wala guys they will have genuine lights and will cost like 1700-1900
    3 Dash board prices may vary 2000-3500 depending up on quality and kabuli will cost 6K to 8k
    4 steel rims no idea but 3k max checked them last year
    5 engine over hauling now it depends on how much parts are needed to replace a normal engine overhaul with boring etc will cost 25K with genuine parts
    6 servo systems 2.5k for servo and fitting depends how much they ask

    hope this my idea of prices is correct

    I got a 2004 Mehran. It takes around 2 to 3 minutes in the morning to warm up the car. As soon as temp gauge needles reached "C" i start to drive. It remains on C even after 20 25 mins of drive. Also as i stop on signal the needle starts to go below C and car starts to shiver until i pull out the choke or move the car. What could be the reason? My radiator fan is direct.

    Sir u mentioned the Reason ur self direct FAN its very harmful even and more even in winters go forr auto fan in winter and if ur mehran has A/C then direct fan in summers i might suggest u what i used to do but its risky Don't try this on ur car but i like to share it what i used to do i started mehran in winters i pulled the Fan plug for like 5mins and when temp reached mid i switched back the fan on on this no shiver and fan was direct

    just to add a tip to smohsin83 for his car increased temperature in summer when A/C is ON, you can use windshield shower nozzle trick. Replace it in front of radiator, fix it there and use it to shower water stream on radiator when you stop your car at signals or stuck in traffic

    My experience with Mehran's has been good. Dad used to have Alto japanese model (mehran shape) we kept it from 1991-2003. Petrol driven it never gave any problem and was in pristine condition. Now i've been using Mehran since 2006, it has covered 114K, still working fine on just regular maintenance

    Any idea how much carpet would be used in it if we do it ourself?
    Almost everyone in Pakistan is doing corruption to the extent they can. Our leaders are doing at the level they can do. So why should we complain?

    salam bro.
    yes i have not one problem with my mehran.i have been using mehran since 2 years.first i had 90 model fully genuine.now i bought 10 model from my brother.the worst problem is hard stairing.if i am alone or single on car it is going fit and free stairing.but when it is full with 4 or 5 persons stairing becomes hard.when i turn it right steering pushes hardly to left while also on other side also same experience.only one left boot is cutted off.think what should be the problem?????i had never such experience like that with my 90 model since i enjoyed two years fully with very few work.i have no much time to go to mechanic and let him think tht what is the problem with it?

    If hard sterring is the issue then first of all what tires are in ur ride that matters a friend owns a 07 santro with 13' rims and his car was just like driving a truck then he shifted to original size wheels which solved the problem for him
    For steering check bushes in steering are they worn out its in the Rod on which steering wheel is attached then if that's all set then check the steering rack aka Steering box there is a plastic bush on it check that Also
