Hello all experienced PWheelerz!
I own a vitz 2005, 80k on da odo...just bought a month ago...over the time I have been facing following problems in my ride:
The previous owner told me dat he installed AC compressor of a corolla in it because the old one stopped working. Now...the cooling is fairly good but I noticed that after driving with AC on around 15 to 20km the car looses its pick or I have to press the accelerator down to the metal...seems like the vehicle is getting hot but no sign on the cluster!
After driving 10 to 15 km the steering gets a bit hard on bit higher speed I mean 30 to 40km/hr...the return rotation also needs some effort. Feels like it gets stuck and after applying a little force it suddenly responds. On a turn if the speed is around 30km the steering wouldn't get straight or back to normal position unless force is applied. After giving vehicle some rest and the vehicle is cold it would behave normal and again.
Smell of petrol in the room...after driving and then parking
Average calculated so far is 10 to 12 with AC on around 70% of the time.
It's 1.0 B...got oil, filter changed, calibration done!
It's also noticed that front wheel bearings have also gone bad and produce sound on bumps (as speculated by mechanic)
Need ur valuable suggestions please
