Hi & Asalaam-O-Alykum Pakwheelers!
I recently purchased a Corolla 2.0D SE 2007 as a test case to see how it goes with diesels, given
the era of cheap fuel crisis we are going through in Pakistan. Since I am new to diesel cars,
I need your expert advice on keeping my car tuned-up for performance and comfort.
I searched for a similar thread on this topic but couldn't find one, so I thought why not start one.
1. It's a 2007 2.0D SE
2. 60,000 kms done on december,12 mostly in Karachi,
3. Fuel average roughly 15+ on city use only, which I am looking forward to improve.
My intended use is intra-city approximately 300-400 kms/week and 4/5 long roundtrips (800 kms)
in a year. My previous ride was a brand new Suzuki ALTO VXR CNG , 2006.
To start with....
a. I have this problem of blue smoke on cold engine.
b. How to improve fuel average
c. I need info on credible maintenance workshops in Islamabad.
I would need you advice on maintenance, lubes, performance and about anything you think is worth mentioning.
Please be as generous as you can and give me the very best of your knowledge and experience.
Please divide your answers in categories to help me find specific details easily.
help me help everyone....... thanks / shukriya
