    Default My new ride Vitz 2006, fresh import

    Asalam-o-Alikum warahmatullah,

    I was planning to upgrate my Cultus Vxli 2008 for last three months. There was a big tie between Toyota vitz and Suzuki Swift. Both rides are awesome, but I had to pick one. So, in the end I picked Toyota Vitz. The main reason to pick it was the lack of auto transmission in Suzuki Swift.

    Second tie was in between 1.3L and 1.0L versions. Though 1.0 is the best if one wants to save fuel and taxes but I required power too. So I opted for 1.3 version.

    I will use this thread to keep you all updated about the ride inshAllah.

    I remember the Toyota people took 7600 Rs. from me. It included every thing accept that I bought engine oil, gear oil, air filter and coolant separately from a local shop.

    If you are looking to spend only a few bucks right now, then I'd suggest you change air filter, radiator coolant (very cheap), wheel balancing & alignment, and be sure to maintain tyre pressure of 30psi front and 32 psi rear (as recommended in Vitz manual), and get throttle body of engine cleaned plus engine oil change.

    All this should cost around Rs. 5000 (material and labor included)

    These short term measures will increase your fuel average while being light on pocket.

    Upon opportunity later (but not too late), you can replace CVT oil (don't use ATF), use better quality tyres (don't know the current state of your car tyres), spark plug inspection / replacement, etc.

    Agreed 100%. Just one change. Put spark plug inspection in the priority list mentioned by ahamid bhai in the beginning of this post.

    Asalam-o-Alikum brother,
    ohou. First make sure the oil is leaking from the lid. The oil can also get leaked through "O" ring which is beneath the drain tube. If it is so, you should change the "o" ring only. But if it is leaking from the sides of lid, the toyota person has not put silicon properly. I have got silicon two times on the gear box lid and have never found any leak. You can open the lid again and try to get new gear gaskit ( the seal of the lid) as given in this figure which was uploaded by murtaza_murti bhai few days ago. He has written his recommendations on the image. Read them carefully.

    My new ride Vitz 2006, fresh import - 372332

    Put the new seal on it instead silicon. But if gaskit is not available silicon should be put properly as shown in this figure:

    My new ride Vitz 2006, fresh import - 370803

    Please do not put old gaskit (seal). Remove the old seal and only put silicon. But I will recommend you to put new gaskit instead of silicon. Anyways, silicon also works fine if applied well.

    Yes you can use the same oil. Make sure you drain it in a clean box. You can drain it in the same CVT gear oil container from which you have put it before. Make sure to use a clean container. Afterwards you can put the oil back.

    AoA. Oh? were you there? I mean did you check it yourself that the gear oil lid is not leaking? The corners around it were clean?

    If this is it then you should take a look again on verifying what's on the floor really. I mean you should verify is that really oil or coolent?

    Did you got your coolent changed? Has it started after that coolent change?

    As far as my thinking is concerned, it is oil! I think they have most probably overloaded the gear oil. You should have also get the inlet nut checked.

    Take some time. Keep observing the oil for few days. If it constantly drains then you must go for a recheck otherwise this oil drainage will go away automatically.

    I will also recommend you to send a private help message to @murtaza_murti bhai. He has always been a good help regarding JDMs.

    best of luck,

    @Syed-Sohaib,

    Is there a difference in color between ATF and CVT-TC?

    I think both are red May be a slight change but both look almost identical to me at least. I last time put a LiquiMoly ATF in my ride and it was almost same (may be a bit darker) then the Toyota genuine CVT.

    Thats an image from eneos.us website:

    My new ride Vitz 2006, fresh import - CVT vials

    why are you looking for that difference? Are you trying to determine quality? The same website suggests in question answer session:

    "Q: Are the colors different for ATF and CVT Fluid?

    A: The color of most ATF products are red. CVT Fluid comes in red, green, and blue. The color difference is due to color dye added during blending. It does not reflect actual product content
    "

    thanks bro.

    asked abt difference because most mechanics erroneously put atf instead of cvt-tc. if color was different then it would be possible to visually check if correct fluid was put in any used car.

    Ahan. Right. I think one should always check the gear oil container's label instead of comparing colors. The CVT version of oils are always categorically labeled with CVT tag. Even the non-genuine AT fluid makers like liquiMoly mention on their website about the compatibilty with CVT. For example liquiMoly people have cearly mentioned here on their website (given below) that ATF is only for non CVT gear boxes.

    Liqui Moly oils

    But I was not able to calculate the second tank because the technicians at toyota took petrol out of tank to clean gearbox oil lid. I do not know how much oil they had taken. So, the calculation which came at 12.5 Km/L seems to be wrong.

    The third tank is under way. I have driven 248 Kms on this tank with three bars out. I will update the mileage this time after refill inshAllah.

    How can i do that?
    Simply check the engine number. If it is 1KR-FE it is 1000 CC. If it is 2NZ-FE or 2SZ-FE then it is 1300 CC.

    1000 CC vitz has 3 valve engine. So you can seen three valves on the top. But 1300 CC has four valves.

    This is 2SZ-FE engine of my vitz. It is 1300Cc. You can see one head. And other three heads are under that black air intake box.

    And this is 1KR-FE engine. It is 1000CC. By the way this ride belongs to @ajjubravo bhai. Ajjubravo bhai has changed his air intake and the three heads are clearly visible.

    With Company fitted air intake the 1000Cc engine will look like this (No heads visible):
