    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.

    ================================================== =====
    Updates:

    1) Pictures of Engine bay

    2) Fog lights

    3) Activating GPS Navigation and a sample Video during navigation.

    4) Steelmate two way Alarm System

    5) Console Armrest

    6) HIDs

    7) New RIMs and Tires

    8) New Seat Covers and Arm-rest console
    ================================================== =====
    Average:

    With very Hard acceleration: 11.5 Km/L
    With normal acceleration (different for different people): 13.0 km/L
    With extremely soft pedal: 17.0 Km/L (Easily reachable with in city)

    Some Very useful discussions

    1) How to read auction sheet and extract information like original odometer reading etc for JDM rides


    2) Which one is the best suitable tire size for Vitz? (Page 14, 15 and 16)


    3A) CVT Oil Change procedure, requirements and necessity
    3B) The Genuine components Toyota recommends to change at every gear oil change



    4A) Some discussion on CAT removal (fears, theories, practices)
    4B) How to remove first CAT
    4C) How to remove second CAT


    5) How to change the cabin filter/Air condition filter?


    6) How to register an imported vehicle in Islamabad? (Summary of complete procedure)


    7) Toyota Vitz JDM Packages and details.


    8) Iridium vs copper plugs.


    9) Why High octane for 1kr-fe engine? Is it necessary? Does it give more mileage\power? Click the link below:
    https://www.pakwheels.com/forums/mem...50#post4398570 <- Page 50 - Post #992

    10) Driving to Naran.


    ================================================== ====

    Major car part failures

    1) Weired noises in the engine due to water pump bearings
    1B) The water pump was replace. [price]

    ================================================== ====

    Accidents

    1) Hitting a shahzore. It was my mistake Received some scratches on bumper
    and a little dent in body.


    2) Hitting a bike. He was coming wrong way and I was over speed too. Sadly, I lost my windscreen and fog light. Front bumper, right headlight and A/C pipes were damaged.

    Although I do not own a vitz but since I could not digest the idea of a car that is known worldwide for its exceptional fuel economy being labelled as "yeh itna he ker sakti hay" by those who own it and by the mechanics they were visiting, and I was unable to understand what is the point of keeping such a car if you are ok with getting 10-12 km / litre which a well tuned 1800cc can easily achieve, I decided to take one such faulty car and look what's the cause of this hypothesis formed by hearsay. A colleague's ride with a 1KR-FE, which was giving around 10lm /litre was taken as the project car and some reading on forums was done to get some initial clues, based on which the following steps were taken :
    1. CVT oil change was due and it was replaced as per the explanation in Ghuncha's post along with the gaskit for oil tray
    2. Front CAT was removed which was found clogged
    3. Plugs were replaced
    4. Car was shifted to liquimoly semi synthetic 10-40w oil
    5. Original air filter was installed
    6. Brake service was performed and rear drums were found worn out and were replaced
    7. Liqui moly's injector cleaner was poured in the fuel tank
    8. Original oil filter was purchased for next oil change which would be earlier then the usual term for such oil

    After the above steps, the car which went from isl to lhr through motorway in a full tank now does the same with half of it. It still is work in progress because the first flush of this oil would take out much sludge from the engine after which it would get the fresh oil with the original filter. And thanks to this thread a very important step has been identified i.e. the removal of second CAT which would be performed next. The fuel filter inspection is also due but hoping it would be ok because it is just too expensive

    Now something about the thread, it surely is a really good effort initiated by shoaib and improved by many and provides much needed input in many areas. It's posts like these that give purpose to this community as we all come here to find the most relevant information about our rides based on the experience of others who have faced similar circumstances, so way to go pakwheelers and keep it up. I would be sharing my opinion where I would like to differ with the opinion of some of you and the intent is to find the best possible solution for all, so take it in good spirit.

    The use of Iridium is only to increase the service life, that is the only thing even claimed by the manufacture denso in this case. And since the service intervals of our cars are not the same as abroad due to really harsh driving conditions and the way we maintain our vehicles with cheap spares, there is absolutely no point of using an expensive plug for very long service life. Just put in a simple copper tip and throw it away after 25K if you feel like, even after three such iterations you might not reach the cost that you would incur for iridium which are utterly useless in this case. All the thing claimed by here by the change of plugs are baseless, maybe the genius also got a fresh oil change when he changed the plugs and then calimed meri to gari badal gayi yar :-)

    The following are stock plugs for a vitz 1KR-FE engine :
    DENSO K20HR-U11
    NGK LFR6C-11
    BOSCH FR7KCU

    I have a personal inclination towards NGK although I am aware that denso came as the OEM ones in vitz

    Now coming to the 1 litre vs 1.3 litre discussion, a bigger engine in the same chasis (and all other factors kept same e.g. driving habits) means that it would need to be pushed less for the same amount of output hence more economical. So there is nothing to be surprised about if the 2SZ-FE are getting a better mileage then the 1KR-FE, the idea that we have in mind that a bigger engine consumes more fuel is because we have seen them in bigger cars. Its not the same when the same car is in question with an economy engine, if you can then try to get the 1.3 litre version as its worth it.

    About the tyre size, 195s in a car that has such tiny engines :-S really ??? It would make sense if its a vitz with a 1NZ-FE but it surely is a totally wrong decision with the smaller engine variants. It should ideally be kept on 165s (of course with higher profiles) but since those tires are not available in the local market for 14 inch wheels, 175 is the max these cars should be getting. Anything above that is just wrong, its a small car with a small engine that needs a small tire.

    I believe that if one has a car like vitz and is getting anything less then 18km/litre in local travelling, then there is no point in keeping this car. A Japanese made sedan like Mitsubishi lancer with a 1.3 or a 1.6 can do 11/12 within city, even the tin can cultus with decades old technology (yes this goes the same for the "efi" engine, its a really old design and its just crap) can do that. Vitz is a really economical car with an exceptional engine and should be kept in a way it deserves, get it tuned up properly and enjoy the value for your money.

    Get over the fact that Xli lacks power windows, Its an Xli because it lacks thoose features or else it would be a Gli or an Altis if had all the goodies.

    Ok Shoaib Sir jee thank you I was just wondering that if they are heavier than rims then it would add load to the engine.

    +1 brother!

    I have done all of them.

    "Car was shifted to liquimoly semi synthetic 10-40w oil" -- Yes I have used it with my vitz and it works very well.

    " Liqui moly's injector cleaner was poured in the fuel tank" -- That's the only thing I have missed till now. '

    The use of Iridium is only to increase the service life, that is the only thing even claimed by the manufacture denso in this case. And since the service intervals of our cars are not the same as abroad due to really harsh driving conditions and the way we maintain our vehicles with cheap spares, there is absolutely no point of using an expensive plug for very long service life. Just put in a simple copper tip and throw it away after 25K if you feel like, even after three such iterations you might not reach the cost that you would incur for iridium which are utterly useless in this case. All the thing claimed by here by the change of plugs are baseless, maybe the genius also got a fresh oil change when he changed the plugs and then calimed meri to gari badal gayi yar :-)

    The following are stock plugs for a vitz 1KR-FE engine :
    DENSO K20HR-U11
    NGK LFR6C-11
    BOSCH FR7KCU

    I have a personal inclination towards NGK although I am aware that denso came as the OEM ones in vitz
    +1.

    Copper is a better conductor than iridium. It also dispels heat quicker than iridium. The bad thing is copper corrodes earlier than iridium. That means copper's life is less. Iridium melts at very high temperature and avoids corrosion at it's best. It is known to be the most corrosion resistant metal even at 2000 degree centigrade.

    If in same condition, normally both type of plugs perform same but copper has a minute chance to perform better due to it's better conducting capabilities but difference will be almost negligible for single spark produced.

    In summary:
    If someone wants longer maintenance intervals; one should opt for iridium. Otherwise copper is the best!
