    Default Kindly advice urgently (Toyota Passo)

    Dear Fellows and Car Gurus~!

    I am from Islamabad. I bought a Passo 1KR last month and till now quite satisfied with the performance etc. Can you please let me know about:

    1. Which oil is best for engine performance and better mileage, currently i am using Havoline 10-30. Also what quantity is appropriate, i filled 3.3 liter.

    2. I hear a squeak like sound from the brakes when i start and drive the car. But it goes away over time, anyone had the same experience or is it normal?

    3. Does it have a Catalytic Converter and shall i get it removed? I had a Vitz 1KR before and when i removed that, mileage became better but car became noisy.

    4. Any experience in having TV Navigation installed, where can i get one in Islamabad or Rawalpindi and in what cost approximately?

    5. Also, do anyone of you know of a place which has its spare parts in the twin cities?

    6. Last but important, Vitz had a computerized throttle and Passo has cabled throttle. Does it still need to mix hi-octane 50-50 with simple patrol or i can drive it without hi-octane?

    Thanks in advance for helping me out.

    Cheers!

    "caltex havoline formula" is the best oil for your car engine.
    It's better to lose your EGO to the one you LOVE.Than to lose your LOVE because of your EGO.

    Congrats...! BRO

    i bought Passo 2 months back and gone through all post purchase todo list
    let me answer ur queries with limited knowledge i have

    1- I put Shell (Blue)
    Shell Helix HX7

    Havolin is also good but i reckon Mobil 1

    2- The sound u hear is coming from drums,get ur brake service but it's normal don't worry.By the way are u experiencing any vibrations with LOW RPM specially when car is cold.

    3- No idea about catalyst converter but any thing comes from factory must have a purpose so don't remove.

    4- Original CD player looks good but if u want navigation u can easily get it from Peshawar or Lahore market.

    5- No idea

    6- Using 25% of Hi octane keeps ur engine healthy but not recommend

    Suggestions:Get Throttle Body and Map sensor cleaned,Gear oil change and filter service,Plug replace or serivce,Battery cleaned / replace as required.

    I am running this car for two month and i found only two issues

    1- Steering colum play which can be adjusted easily
    2- Vibration at low RPM possible cause (Engine Mount rubber weakend)

    Thanks

    Thanks Ali for the help. Appreciated. since most of the people are satisfied with havoline so i'll continue with it and the catalytic converter as well. But HX7 is also good.

    There is no vibration when cold, that is perfect and i love the way car is handling the RPM. Also i got throttle body cleaned from toyota and plugs serviced.

    When i bought the car, its left caster was out which i got adjusted and done the alignment. Still car tends to move to left. Can you tell what needs to be fixed?

    Are you running your car on 25% octane and 75% regular? which combination is recommended 100% regular patrol?

    Also how frequently you clean your air filter and what mileage it is giving you? mine is giving 14.7 per liter in islamabad inside city.

    I tried both combination and it doesn't make any difference with fuel average or performance.I guess quality of petrol matters a lot
    in Isloo fuel is much better than Multan.

    r u using stock rims? may be left Rim or Tyre is not in proper shape.

    I m getting Max 12 coz of 13" alloys and 185/70 Tyre and in Multan average is always less due to crowdy roads,i clean air filter after two weeks.

    Thanks Ali. I'll get the alignment and tyre checked. I am using 13" stock rims with 155/80 that came with the car. I'll try running the car on simple patrol if someone has other suggestion or experience.
