Peaceful Ramadan to PW community,
I need experts opinion about the issues i am facing with a recently bought Vitz of mine 1300CC. the car was a self import of 2012 Dec by a reference and has ODO of 50000K at that time, the car hardly drove 12000 in Pak and remain parked and unattended as owner was abroad mostly. I am very certain based on my experience that ODO is genuine as car condition speaks for itself unlike mostly vitz i have seen have 150K ODO and spoiled by youngsters during my search for a nice car. Upon purchase i done following works
- complete new fuel pump and fuel filter assembly, Genuine Toyota
- iridium spark plugs
- throttle body service and all sensor cleanups
- Cat converter service, infact complete exhaust flush out
- CVT oil change and Valve body service, Genuine Toyota CVT
- LiquiMoly fuel additives to clean fuel lines
NO CODE on scanner after above service
When car was bought, it drives very poor no pickup probably cat was chocked and or fuel pump was weak also, anyways I believe the above work should bring at least phenomenal change in drive and pickup but thats not the case, considering a hatchback with 1.3L and auto it should have decent pickup, i am not expecting 0-100 in 10 sec but a decent drive.
In reality the car survives till 40-60km in fact sometime a felt up and down in pickup, the engine or exhaust sounds louder till 100 however, at/above 100 it drives fine and sound went normal. Major problem i felt when i went for Damen-e-koh, it was horrible...For everybody info i kept and driving cars for last 35+ years and have fair knowledge of maintaining cars.
The mechanic is with me for last 10+ years and have decent experience
Kindly guide me where is problem as i have to travel to northern areas on this vehicle bought specially for this trip.
