ok so here is my car pictures. The temp gauge stays at this position no matter what. 2nd picture is showing time and outside temperature when the temp gauge picture was taken.its been pretty hot here in rwp these days. Mind you, the AC was running when pictures were taken and liana is handling this hear waive quite well
ok so the problem i need guidance for is the car seems under powered. what i mean by under powered is in initial RPMs, the cars response is not as great as it should be. im using shell HX7(5W-30) oil and change it after 5k kms. no oil reduction and no smoke. no problem of head gasket, no startup problem, car starts in half self in morning. on higher rpms, car seems quite responsive, but its the lower rpm, around 2.5ks where it lacks power.
what ive done in try for getting it rectified.
2-New plugs NGK (the recommended ones)
3-new air filter
4-new clutch plate pressure plate and bearing.
5-injectors were cleaned by taking off the rail and washed through carb cleaner while connecting them with battery terminals on and off
6-shims were inspected by one mechanic and as per him they were fine.( car is sound less though)
what next? car has knocking issue as well on rpm around 3.5ks, if i paddle more and rpms crosses 3.5k, knocking vanishes.
what are your suggestions? what should i check next? coils? fuel filter/pump?
please guide. car really has to struggle to go to 100kmph with AC on and i cant really feel the power DOHC engine is famous for! also if someone from rawalpindi can give me some mechanic's number who is well versed with liana.
PS: i had the car scanned two times, once from suzuki and once from my mechanic from whom i get it tuned and no error code appeared.
