    Default Daihatsu Sonica

    AOA
    I am making this thread due to these reasons:
    1. There is no thread which has been made for sharing information about this car.
    2. I am hoping to help others thinking of buying this car, by sharing my experiences, positive and negative points of the car.
    Daihatsu Sonica -1315546
    It is a 2007 model Daihatsu Sonica,(it has same engine as of mira, gino and esse) some of it`s details are as follows:
    1. It is a front wheel drive car.(4 wheel drive option also available)
    2. It`s engine capacity is about 658 cc.( It is Turbocharged car).
    3. It`s fuel tank capacity is about 30-35 litres.(Regular)
    4. Engine oil used is Liqui Moly 10W40 MoS2.(It is very good oil for year round use, but LM 0W30 would be better for winters)
    Daihatsu Sonica -1315545
    5. The engine oil capacity is 2.7L without oil filter change, and 2.9L-3.0L with oil filter change.

    Wow..

    Seems like they got expired almost a decade ago..

    And the carbon on the plug is also showing that your engine needs a tuning.

    Default Can anybody help me please for my engine oil

    I have bought this car 2y ago. Completely satisfied with the performance. But now facing a problem for which I need suggestions.....
    when I bought this car I started using genuine toyota oil 10W30. Then one day my brother suggested me to change the oil & so I started using Zic A and then A+, and now using Total 10W30. The problem is as soon as started using total oil the average decreased, the engine is taking load so what should I do to overcome this problem? I was thinking of changing the oil again but what is the best suitable oil for my vehicle? my cousin suggested me of Zic 0W30. Kindly guide me about this.... Remember my car is already driven 1.4 lac km....

    i once bought a used O2 sensor for my 1000cc belta from shershah... it was worst than the orignal faulty one... if u want peace of mind and save ur engine from further damage... get a brand new one...

    I faced issue with my car (Sonica) , its engine sound increased a lot. I got it checked from toyota company and a few other mechanics but no one was able to diagnose the problem. Then i came across this workshop "Noor Autos(Lahore)",he diagnosed the problem to be in the water pump and ever since i got it replaced the engine has become soundless

    the mechanic arranged the pump for me. total expense including labor was around 5k or 6k.

    the sound was loud even on idle. increased slightly with higher rpm

    I have posted about engine oil and the problem which I have faced about 6months ago. Now the problem is solved when i started using Mobil1 0W-40. What an awesome oil. Although expensive about 1500Rs/L, but really worth its price. Secondly i just changed my transmission oil from Toyota GT motors and they said that its type is CVT TC. i am a bit suspicious is that correct?
