    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

    thanks ekrifter for the pronto reply. one more thing, it would be good if I can get labour charges idea to undertake this job so that I may not get ripped off or waste my time in bargaining if demanded reasonably by the mechanic. and secondly do I have to purchase nawar separately or kamanii walaz have that handy.

    The mehran has a single leaf spring (kamani) only multiple leaf springs need to be lubricated as they rub on each other.

    The shackle bushings are rubber and need to be installed with a generous dollop of silicone grease and tightened in a way that the leaf spring is bent to normal position otherwise the car will be very hard riding from the rear.

    Servo will apply more pressure on the front calipers as in mehran break is hard like a truck and if u driven alto or cultus break peddle is soft
    Servo will make more hydrolic pressure it compresses the break fluid a lot more and then release it on the front calipers thus u need to apply a light foot on break peddle and break will be applied with ease

    @drifter,
    bhai, few weeks back i had my steering wheel all opened up and lubricated because it was making horrible sound upon turning. i got that done from suzuki 3S free of charge on 5000KMS inspection. but the moron did not fit steering straight, its a little turned towards right when going absolutely straight. i saw him open up the steering, i want to ask that can i take it off at home and straighten it myself, i have got the right spanner for that big bolt in the middle.

    1- Remove the cover
    2- Take off the bolt in middle.
    3- make pull the steering towards yourself and it'll come off.
    4- put it on desired position
    5- put the bolt back.

    P.S: Cars usually need alignment after the steering work, did you get you car's alignment done? If not, you better get it done. You can ask the alignments guys to correct the steering position .
    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?

    u can do it it's way easy but one thing Tuk Tuk sound comes from a worn out CV joint check he might replaced it as steering box rarely makes that sound

    All Mehrans come with one leaf spring on each wheel at the rear. All additions are done later - adding more leaves cause a very bad and hard ride from the rear.

    hey guys, can you really explain how the rear suspension of mehran works and how to maintain it like do we need cambering, alignment on rear suspension? In essence how it is different from front suspension and what are the essentials to max out the life and comfort of the rear suspension of mehran without much alteration. discussion on this will be really handy.

    1 Tires: Always use 145/70/12 Or 155/70/12 any 165/70/12 size then kiss suspension goodbye
    2 Servicing: Never apply any OIL/DIESEL while washing from a station as rubber bushes pick up dust while driving around and cause all rattling in suspension
    3 Balancing/Alignment:Always do it after 5000km of traveling Do both
    Rear suspension is fairly simple no rocket science
    Front is a bit tricky there are parts
    1 jumping rod the rod which controls position of the wheels
    2 wish bones AKA chimmtay
    3 Sterring box too
    and chimtay are connected with jumping rod with rubber bushes

    My Mehran is giving blue grey smoke when cold and 1 liter oil is reduced after 400 to 500 km. There is no smoke when the engine gets warmed up.

    I went to electrician to convert my radiator fan to auto from direct. He converted but the problem i faced was that the fan starts at about 80% instead of 50%. What could be the reason?

    faulty temperature sender/wiring.

    same used to happen to me but when i took car to mechanic he said no need to worry coz fan is starting at normal temperature as he checked the pressure of the radiator pipe and also water was not bubbling as it should when the car is hot beyond the limits. so the gauage was only showing wrong reading nothing else. same is the case with you.
    take it to the mechanic and see the pressure of radiator pipe if everything is ok but reading is wrong you need to check the wiring of the temperature sender/gauge. otherwise change the temp sender itself.
