I bought my city 2006 (steermatic) 2 years ago and for 1 year it drove like a dream. It’s a long story and below is the nearest I could get while searching on PW. The one line summary of the issue is it starts taking jerks while in R or D (both while driving and stalled). This usually happens while in traffic jams or low speed driving. Once it goes above 3rd gear it becomes smooth (though not 100% ok but 90% of time)
Well I know some of you will suggest the regular tips but in last 6 months there is hardly anything that I have left from plugs to ignition coil to sensors to fuel pump etc.
How the problem is no mechanic is able to fix my issue. Every mechanic has his own story to tell.
Please also note that his goes from bad to worse when using AC.
How here is the confusing part:
Few mechanics suggested changing gear box and few are suggesting changing engine altogether.
Now my confusion is, how to actually confirm what the actual issue is. I am sick and tired of these experimental mechanics now.
My query is if there is an issue with Engine howcome the car is totally smooth on P and N?
On the other hand the gear changing (when I put gear in P/N/D/R) seems flawless. The only thing I can’t confirm is the automatic shifting from 1st gear to 2nd 3rd and 4th etc. This part I can’t say much about.
Some people on other threads have mentioned something about clutch calibration etc.
Someone shed more light on it. Plus also note that 2 mechanics also talk about engine compression being poor. They didn’t check it while I was there. They told me this over call. Unfortunately I am so much fed up of mechanics that I am not willing to believe them for anything that they have not tested or done in my presence.
One mechanic at Tariq Road initially started talking about gear box change and 40,000 cost and when I discussed him in detail and he drove the car himself he took u-turn and said it looks like there is an issue with Engine.
I told him what if I speed 40,000 on gear/engine and still the issue is not fixed, he is going to return my money? He obvious answer was no. So I told him why I should let him play experiments with my car?
Guys please help
I want a trust worth mechanic for Honda City in Karachi. If anyone knows. Not the experimental ones.
I have already spend around 20,000 and still standing at ZERO POINT
