Salam, I recently purchased my first diesel B14 (1998) (from Pakwheels) from here in Karachi. After spending around 50K (not small amount) I recently came across this thread and realize real problems are still there like getting timing right, fans to auto (glow plugs doing ~3 seconds), thermostat check (needle doesn't start in middle), head bolts (older ones were repaired after head phase) etc.
My recent average is of around 9 km/liter, although starts up fine but car lacks power -- engine starts complaining when even going up to 80km/h in 4th gear. Basically just doesn't feel right and now after reading this thread I now understand, it's the timing.
I really want to save this car from further engine damage, and also my wallet so would appreciate someone who could please point me to a reliable, honest mechanic/shop in Karachi who could at least fix my timing, and perhaps wiring too.
- I checked Diesel Power Systems website, looks like they're no longer in business.
@dani80pk bro if your mechanic has done this then I'll appreciate if you could PM me his contact #
- My own mechanic is AFAIK honest but he doesn't seem to be knowledgable here
