    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

    AOA Mehran Experts,

    My Mehran is giving white smoke when engine heat up after few minutes of start up. The radiator is totally fine and serviced, no blockage in it. Mobil Oil changed with Caltex havoline 20w50. Oil reduction is observed in engine after 1500Km driven. oil level reduced to low level.
    Please suggest that should i go to overhaul the engine or just sealing should be changed and problem resolved. because CAR is totally driven locally just 23000Km.

    Please suggest

    why did you used 20w 50 oil in a new car just why!
    bad for the engine extreme bad for valves etc
    some times bad head gasket
    u should have stick to 10w 40 for it
    23K is just not much

    SImple, its mechanical issue, when u press the accelerator then vibration is on minimum level and car ignition system never disturbed due to vibration. So go for Gear mechanical part to resolve the issue.

    I already check the blue smoke, when CAR is fully heated after some drive then i stop it and give the full throttle for 1 minute continuous to check the blue smoke, but only white smoke comes and there is no blue smoke. But after leaving the race paddle, engine smells like some thing rubber or some wires are burning but when i open the bonut nothing was burnt just engine was over-heated.

    Now what could be the issue?

    AOA Mehraners :-p

    i have notice that many mehran oowners have replaced their plug cables from genuine to other brand?! why is that soo. also in next few months i will be visiting to Isb from Lahore so i need to fix my 170k mileage busty 2005 mehran currently i am facing these problems:

    1- ac fixing
    2- front axel replacement
    3- clutch plate replacement
    3- read a above post that fan should be on automatic mode, but recently i have noticed that my temp gauge is more than half and its near to red bar and some times its normal!? no leakage and filled with coolant!!!! why is it acting funny?
    4- which plugs and 8mm cable should i use!
    5- recommended engine & gear oil? for long travel?

    As i recently moved to Pak (Lahore), i am having trouble trusting mechanics (can barely understand punjabi zabaan) and looking for reliable/economical parts for this car. where can I find a reliable garage (in Lahore)? what will be the costs for these parts? i will be free after 22 Jun (due to Exams :-p)

    the gear oil of my Mehran 2013 12000km driven is leaking. (from the "tikki" towards the front left tyre side).
    the leakage is minor. almost 5-10 drops in a day.
    i showed it to Showroom from where i bought it. it starts leaking after i get it repaired. they apply silicon on it every time.
    why does it start dripping again 7 again ?
    any permanent solution for this ?

    i showed it to Showroom from where i bought it. it starts leaking after i get it repaired. they apply silicon on it every time.
    why does it start dripping again 7 again ?
    any permanent solution for this ?
