    will throw out engine oil / transmission oil / all filters / service throttle body

    on the other hand i think if the cvt oil is pink and clear and under 80,000km's.no need to change
    brakes if physically inpsected(and leather can be seen) no need to change
    if no erratic idling issues, no need to touch throttle body
    if no knocking in car, no need to put hi octane in it ( i dont )
    plugs have 1lac km life. no need to touch them till then.

    any mechanic with half functional brain and skills can do the basic check up in short

    Don't take much risk on CVT... Change it after every 40k km...

    Throttle cleaning with spray is ok, just 200 Rs bottle, without opening throttle...

    Hi Octane is needed in case of bad petrol in your area... i got it filled whenever i find it in any feasible pump...

    yes plug changing after 100k km... Can be cleaned at 40 and 80k service...
    Keep Faith in Allah...

    amazing,
    people drive cars like passo on hi octane "only"
    i only got hi octane once that to mixed it with super

    y r u guys changing the belts ?
    because of the screeching sound the car makes on cold ?

    Qasim,
    brake fluid level will drop
    plus you have to take 1 wheel off and physically inspect. i posted picture few pages back
    Belt sound on cold start was not such annoying, but the continuous sound was. on inspection belt was found damaged such that its width decreased up to half of its length. Might be some stone or solid/ metallic piece got approached in between belt and pulley.

    Default Tyre Size and Hitting on Ground Issue

    I used 185/70/13, Tyres to get rid of hitting on ground issue on jumps. Much improvement found , beside tyre calculator which told that only 02 mm ground clearance will increase. So i decided to find out, what actually overcame this issue. My conclusion is it is not the size of the tyre which did good. It was hardness of the tyre of Bridgestone which does not allow car to go down much.
    So :
    if tyre sizes are same then car with soft tyres will hit ground, and the car with hard tyres will not hit on most of the jumps.
    Whatever size you select , it should be hard tyres, if you want to avoid your car hitting ground, but it will decrease joy ride.
    And if you do not want to loose joy ride then opt for soft tyres.
    Michelin Tyres are soft, Bridgestone tyres are hard.

    Any other opinion will be wellcome.

    Now onwards I don't think that you will need hi octane. PSO has launched 92Ron petrol in Karachi and hopefully it will soon be available in other provinces as well. I can't understand why a high quality product will be damaging to engine. There is usually a minimum Ron requirement for engines and in my very limited knowledge no high Ron limit. Please note that I am not challenging the validity of your question. To me it is a very valid question. May be some technical person can clarify it further

    Well change following as per suggestion from the service list:

    Zic X7 5w-20 3ltr Rs.1650- best for the cars worth and performs well upto 8000km. Passo is no Bentley.
    Toyota original silver CVTF don't ever think of after market transmission oils and get it changed from Toyota 3s only as they know proper tools and protocols and can cover loss if something happens bad.
    Change transmission oil if needed before 70000km otherwise no punga.
    Dont change original brake fluid just top it up... Seikon cannot match toyota original brake oil.

    Used mobil 1 liqui moly but Zic 5w-20 & 0w-30 gives the best fuel economy and performance. They are simple waste of money.

    Lepon oil filter cost Rs. 220 not 450 and lepon air filter costs Rs. 370 only.
    Buy your replacement parts yourself including oils and just ask for service.
