    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

    After heavy rains in Karachi, my front wheel bearings are making noise. Which bearing brand is good? Is there any way to fix this sound without changing the bearings?

    Jinyu tires are good. Will cost you around 3k per tyre. They are soft and with good road grip and less noise.

    only way is to open the Hub and then see grease might help it plus genuine barring is 950RS

    Problem:

    I am driving my mehran normally, with AC, no heating up, no issue, enjoying everything. After driving like 15-30 minutes I park it, shut it off. Later I try to power it up after let?s say 2-5 minutes and all my car does is cranking. It does not power up.

    Solutions learnt so far:

    Wait 15 minutes and car will start if I am lucky, or convert it to petrol by pressing converting button two times and then start, it will start but still depends on my luck.

    The Mechanic:

    I have been to a lot and they all are ustads who really do not answer. I happened to get my car checked from a place where mechanic was a little learned I guess. This is what he did, first thing first, my car was not starting after CNG refill and I dragged it to him for his review. He opened up the bonnet, took a piece of wire, connect one part to battery terminal and other part to a piston sort of a thing attached to my CNG kit, I heart a TIC sound and then he started the car with ease.

    Advice:

    He advised me to get that piston thingy changed as it gets jammed. It was all gibberish to me frankly. I want to reconfirm this from pakwheels gurus and ekdrifter himself.

    @disisfifty
    Two things could be of factor:

    Your alarm system (if any). Have it checked.

    Your coil. AC heats up the coil to the extent car never starts. Have cool it down a bit then start it.

    Get these checked and provide us the update so other PW members know.

    Problem:

    I am driving my mehran normally, with AC, no heating up, no issue, enjoying everything. After driving like 15-30 minutes I park it, shut it off. Later I try to power it up after let?s say 2-5 minutes and all my car does is cranking. It does not power up.

    Solutions learnt so far:

    Wait 15 minutes and car will start if I am lucky, or convert it to petrol by pressing converting button two times and then start, it will start but still depends on my luck.

    The Mechanic:

    I have been to a lot and they all are ustads who really do not answer. I happened to get my car checked from a place where mechanic was a little learned I guess. This is what he did, first thing first, my car was not starting after CNG refill and I dragged it to him for his review. He opened up the bonnet, took a piece of wire, connect one part to battery terminal and other part to a piston sort of a thing attached to my CNG kit, I heart a TIC sound and then he started the car with ease.

    Advice:

    He advised me to get that piston thingy changed as it gets jammed. It was all gibberish to me frankly. I want to reconfirm this from pakwheels gurus and ekdrifter himself.
    oh brother this problem happened to me way back in 2005 the thingy doesn't gets jammed the main problem is Fuse installed in CNG kit it needs to be replaced so here what i did
    took my car to CNG tuning shop told me to do a full service of tank and Kit they opened up all the stuff kit and cylinder and took out all the oil in CNG kit and Cylinder cleaned it up and whole fuse assembly replaced
    BTW kit was local fitted Landy rezeno.
    Btw ur car's model and if kit is FF or local but if it has this fuse then problem is the fuse.
    Hanjiii Kaa Storeey Eehh !
