I'm planning to visit Toyota Airport Motors for my next oil change. I just wanted to know what things i need to keep in mind before paying my visit to Toyota Airport Motors. As Faisal said that they're the best in town so I want to try that place. I've few questions about my Vitz I need to ask you guys.
1- There is a "grh grh" sound between 50-60 Km/hr speed. Something like when you hear in a manual car when your RPM is very low. It never happened before or maybe rarely happened. But this time it started right after I visit PSO pump in Islamabad. It was constant throughout the ride for 3-4 days. Usually I use 2:1 (normal: HOC) ratio for vitz. But I read at many threads that you get some weird sound in vitz because of low octane level of fuel you're using. So I tried 50:50 ratio from the same pump. The problem kinda went away. I'm just worried that it might come back. So want to know the exact cause of this problem and make sure this doesn't happen again.
2- When my car is idle there is a screeching sound coming underneath my car. It happens both on D and N mode. I happened to notice it most when there are walls on both side of my ride which increases the intensity of the sound and makes it easy to hear due to sound reflection (e.g., drive thru of Mc Donalds). I used to have belt screeching sound before but one mechanic tied some screws and it went away. Don't know he did the right thing or not but sound went away. Is it due to the belt?
3- My car has crossed 40K mark on ODO now. So I want your advise what should be done in maintenance of the car. I bought my car a year back and ODO had 25K on it. I never got anything checked except changing engine oil, air filter and oil filter from a local mechanic. As I said before this is my first car. Didn't even know how to drive a car before that.
4- I need to know the sum I'll be paying to Toyota Airport Motors for the
a-) Engine Oil Change. I can buy original Toyota oil from the filter house faisal told about in his previous post.
b-) Air Filter (Don't know where to buy from)
c-) Oil Filter (I've read somewhere that it should be original like the engine oil. Made in Japan wala not the Thailand one.
d-) Get CVT oil checked. I know from the faisal's post that if I need to change it then it might cost Rs. 5500 + 2500
e-) Full diagnostic test
f-) ECU re-caliberation. I have no idea about it but I've read most people concerned about it. Last time one mechanic changed my car battery and my car started vibrating so bad because ECU got reset. Somehow after driving for 3-4 days this thing went away but I want to get it checked and tune it to optimum setting of my car.
g-) Throttle body clean.
Its just I wanted to know the total cost before bumping into Toyota guys. I know it might be pain in the *** for you guys to write down the cost separately but it would help me out deciding which things to go for according to my budget. If i've left anything important to get checked please do let me know.
I've got many more questions but I think this post getting really long and boring for you guys so I'll ask about them later on. Thanks in advance.
