So,guys, i was out of city for a few days.went to bahawalpur on my idsi a few days ago.left home at 6.30am and reached bhwlpur at 12.30pm. 360kms in 6 hrs... road condition after kabirwala wasnt good and tooo much traffic.anyways, i roamed around in bwp for some time and found it to be a beautiful city.i never expected it to be that developed, nice and clean.atleast the major roads are excellent.
same day, left for multan and stayed at uncles place for the night.next day at 8am, i woke up, had to drop someone at nishter hospital.just when i reached the parking lot of nishter, the clutch bearing gave up it was the same bearing that came with the brand new car, that means it had completed 192,000kms while the clutch plate had 82,000kms on it.after waiting there for some time, sitting in my car with a/c on,a rescue car came (corolla indus :P) and i got my car towed 8kms away from there, to a mechanic that my uncle trusted completely.work was started at 12pm.it took them around 4hrs to open the gearbox and found out that the dead bearing also caused the clutch plate to burn
i got the clutch plate (3600rs) and bearing (1150rs). work ended at around 10pm and i was NOT completely satisfied.there were 4 problems.
1) Gears werent shifting smoothly
2) Check engine light was glowing at all times
3) Gear oil was leaking (figured that out next day)
4) The self starter was turning but it wasnt touching the flywheel so engine wasnt turning (this slipped the next day,on day 1,it was fine)
anyways, when i reached back to Sargodha, problem 1 (hard gears) was gone as predicted by the mechanic.he said as the pressure plate is not changed, it will take some time to adjust.after 350kms,it did.
The other 3 problems were fixed by my own mechanic.
a clip of the exhaust sensor was loose which caused check light to glow.
the gear oil drain nut wasnt properly tightened which was causing oil leak.i got it tightened and then got 0.5ltrs of oil refilled.
one of the nut of started motor wasnt properly tightened (damn that guy, all problems because of loose nuts :@) and everything was back to normal. now my car is perfect once again, Mashallah
All of this was caused because of my own negligence. The bearing was giving a very faint noise from some time but i still had a lot of life left on clutch plate.the job of opening gear box was too much for me to get done only for a bearing and then again for the clutch plate after a few months.My mechanic said that noisy bearings can last for thousands of kilometers so don't worry.But it did'nt.
NEVER ignore ANY kind of noise coming from the engine.try to narrow down the problem and get it fixed as soon as possible.Never delay change of such necessary parts as they can make u stop anytime anywhere.
Things would have been worse if this bearing had given up somewhere near bahawalpur on the desert road.i would be more careful next time.
Thats it for now guys, i thought i should share the whole story with u guys
