well i do understand that but we dont have too cold temperatures in Pakistan. the minimum temp wud be 0 deg on minus 1 or two max! thats not too cold for the engine at all. these block heaters n oil heaters are for places where the temperatures drop down to minus 20 - 30 or so. like in northern canada etc, the water in the radiator wud literally freeze up over night. thats when u need these extra things.
I was tried some years back a basic spray unit in my 2.6 HILUX in UAE just for fun and u know what happens ( I feels 3.2 engine power under the hood )fuel rate also improve, now I try to make some advanced system here in lahore,So that I asked if any other idea anyone have in mind,
Yes these things r for - temp for our country if any cold start problom feels like some friend, Then simply use thin oil or let the engine to achieving tempt.Thanks
well, prius has this kind of heater thingy.
"Some cars, such as the second generation Toyota Prius, pump hot coolant from the cooling system into a 3 litre insulated thermos-style reservoir at shutdown, where it stays warm for up to 3 days."
Prius is an other type of technology engine not connect to wheels its only produce electricity and also the rev padel not connect with engine, so if u rev on cold start or drive cold car engine is not inline .
Salam to all. Members i need guidance about engine flush. While changing engine oil last month i noticed that the drained oil was very dirty and mechanic was of the opinion that car needs engine flush. The engine oil was being changed after 3300 KMs. I am using Havoline Formula 10W30. Now Its time to change the oil again as the car has been driven for almost 3000 kms. I want to inquire about proper way to flush engine, proper product (price and also where to buy in Ibd), and is there possibility of any harm to engine. One thing i want to mention that car is 17500 kms driven and I have never flush the engine for last 75000 kms.
I also wanted to ask about this my car's oil change has been delayed so im thinking to get the engine flushed
I started up the car in the evening for just three or four minutes and it threw THIS much water. Is it ok? I mean its like the car is urinating :S
iDSi 2004, 235k clocked.
@rollonbigmamaits alright. let it urinate, its getting colder every day thats not too much actually. no need to worry.
3300 kms is nothing for havoline formula. on my car it used to turn out fine even after 5000kms. anyways, get liqui moly engine flush liquid. theres a liqui moly shop on the back side of blue area. i think the plaza is called kashmir plaza. not sure. shud cost u 700rs or so. no harm to engine. just drive around for a while to warm up the engine. pour it in, let the car idle for about 5-10 minutes. rev it upto 2000rpms for about 20 seconds and then drain it out immediately.
Thanks Ahmed Bhai

MASHALLAH may i see car hood closeup pic in direct sunlight to see the swirls hehe samj tu app gye hoon gye
I can't say there won't be very small scratches, but no, no swirls at all. I am not crazy about detailing but at the same time I do take care that only the dedicated cloths touch my car
WoW... looking great sir! Very nice rims and very nice number plate too... im glad someone went for a different design of rims because im tired of seeing those same 2-3 designs of rims on every single car
Thanks brother. Yeah they are a little different but look wonderful on the car
can anyone tell me why a car's radiator wud stop picking up water from the reserve tank? my car's reserve tank stay full while the water level in radiator redduces due to a very tiny crack in one of the pipes that takes water into throttle body. the water seeps out from there on a very slow rate, like 1 liter a month or so. but im annoyed because the water in the reserve bottle is at the same level why is that? is it because there is a pressure leakage in the system? like vacuum effect or sumthing? im not getting the time to get the pipe replaced.
