    Default Mehran engine help

    My mehran's engine is making strange noises for a long time, it heats up after few kilometers and I have to fill the radiator frequently.
    I showed my car to many mechanics, most of them say that crankshaft is worned off and needs repair. Estimate is between 13-19k depending on mechanic and parts used.
    Today I showed my car to a mechanic who said that crankshaft need repair and some other part "main beacon" something (I am not sure) will be replaced and that will cost 5k including labour parts and everything. Will take two days.
    Then I went to Honda authorized service centre, they checked the car and told me it need complete overhaul with parts replacing and will cost 25-30k.

    What should I do now, should I get it done by mechanic saying 5k(he will not do complete overhaul will just fix the lower part of the engine as he said that upper part looks fine and needs no repair) or the 30k(complete overhaul with parts replacing no repairing)? I think if I go for this mechanic and everthing goes fine than I will not need complete overhaul spending 30k.

    What do you guys say? have your say

    thanks

    Mehran Engine's total overhauling cost is between 10 to 12k generally. Everything included. I can guide you to a Suzuki specialist if you want. The cost would be between 10 to 12k and your engine will be as good as new.

    25 to 30 k woho Mehran complete overhaul should not cost more than 15k because of cheap parts and make sure U buy original or genuine parts and get them assembled from some good experiance mechanic.

    As you said u have to fill radiator frequantely i feel u have to get engine overhaul or atleast open it up and see if you need to overhaul it or just by replacing few parts putting new rings and replacing head gaskit will do the job.

    Normaly when water level drops if its not any pipe than some where inside the engine water is leaking it can be head gaskit or water body.

    If you are short on budget than I feel changing rings and putting new head gaskit and crank if its in standard than it can be polished and re used.

    Baki crank can be found from 2nd hand part dealers the parts of Mehran are very cheap so if you can find a honest mechanic this whole job can be very cheap.

    Hi all ..........


    As regards radiator ,I think maybe the radiator is leak from somewhere.


    I was facing the refilling problem once in my Mehran.I got that repaired from the radiator welder & used green coolant then.It is fine now.

    Today I got the pipe changed that goes from radiator to engine, it was leaking and I think that was the reason of leaking. Then again the engine was heating up.
    Actually I was thinking to divide this problem in two steps, first I get it done from the mechanic who will just get the cranshaft repaired and if it doesnt work then I will go for complete overhaul, how is that?

    I have bought a coolant and will put it once I am sure that its not leaking anymore. Few month back I got the radiator fixed, he suggested to buy a new radiator although he serviced.

    @s55
    i think thyat ur engine definitely needs an overhaul.but instead of getting a kabli engine overhauling the existing one will be a better idea. the estimates given to you are very expensive. a mehran engine overhauling costs around 10 -12k's with good parts. i recently arranged a friends mehran to be overhauled and the cost was 13k.
    for ur convenience i will write here the prices of some main parts and labour which will give u a rough idea.

    Mechanic Labour 2000
    Kharadia Labour around 1800
    Ring set NPR 800
    Piston set ART Japan 1450
    Main beguns 550
    Join kit 525
    Oil Pump 1400
    Water body 350(non genuine) and 750 for genuine.
    Wall set don't remember the price.

    these are some of the prices that i paid for the friends car. u need a trust worthy mechanic who is experienced and doesn't fools you with prices. if were in lahore i could have helped you. anyway best of luck with the matter.

    What is the price of crankshaft? I just called my mechanic he told me an estimate of 12-15k. He said the prices have increased of parts and only crankshaft is for 5k. I dont trust him anymore so need to keep a check.
