    Default Toyota Vitz Owners/Fan Club

    The purpose of this post is to gauge the interest in forming a Toyota Vitz Owners Club in different cities of Pakistan. As we all know that Vitz has become quite popular in the last year or so. More and more people are buying it or are interested to know more about it. The purpose of the club would be to share technical / operational information regarding the car. As well as help fellow members with different issues regarding the everyday running of the car. There would be regular meets and get together as well as cruises. The criteria to join the club would be to own a Vitz and a desire to help and share information with fellow members. I myself am based in Karachi, so I can take the lead in taking off this project here. Other can do the similar thing in their respective cities. If there is enough interest, a formal charter / by-laws would be issued with club rules and regulation as well as its mission statement. The club would operate under the same rules & conditions as other international car clubs. To take this project off the ground, I believe 10 people in each city would be the minimum requirement. If anyone from Karachi is interested in being a part of this club, please email me at danyal1@hotmail.com. Pakwheelers from other cities can share their email addresses under this post if they are willing to take the lead for their respective cities. I hope to this see become a success someday and a model for other to follow. LETS MAKE IT HAPPEN GUYS!!!

    Vitz 2005 non registered is around 7 to 750 in Islamabad/ Pindi. Dont know about Lahore. In your budget you can get a 2003 or 2004 Vitz.

    2 khitran.
    A vitz 2005 without an engine start stop button can easily cost u around 7.25 to 7.50 but with an engine start stop button would cost u around 7.60 to 8 lakhs.
    REGARDS.

    Guys, Please suggest engine oil for 2001 Vitz,
    i recently changed to Zic A+, but the people on the forum have mixed views about it. Some say it's good, does not matter if you have a new or older car, some say it's only good for newer models, i am really confused, as i have already switched to ZIC A+.
    BTW my car has done 45K and judging by the condition of the car, i am pretty confident that this millage is not tempered. (Registered and imported in 2007).

    Thanks for the help gorkan and SaM_vitz2007,

    BTW gorkan i was looking at your earlier posts about the cat removal, i just wanted to know if the cat removal triggered any warning lights etc and is there any risk of damaging the 02 sensor. (nice clear focused pics - which cam did you use)

    Maximum 560 or 570 in ISB/ RWP. Have no idea about Lahore. Usually Lahore cars have low value here in ISB/ RWP.

    @awanfawad
    if changing spark plugs and fuel filter didn't solve the missing issue... get the wiring checked. See further below on which oil is preferred.

    @SaM_vitz007

    You can read details on:
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Catalytic_converter
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maf_sensor

    Yaris '99 has one 3 way cat converter and I believe a hot wire mass air flow sensor. Btw, dhakka starting a car (in manual/t) has a major detrimental effect on cat converter.

    @Akif Naseer

    Tyre inflation pressure should always be checked when tyres are cold. See recommended psi below.

    @NasirKhalidAbbasi

    3700 for front left light seems very low. Is it new and original? Sorry to hear about your accident. Thankfully no one was hurt.

    Regarding a dent/paint shop, I've been to Auto Club and they seem to do a good job. Last time they matched the paint perfectly. Lets hope they do it this time too!

    Yes, guys... I hit a corolla - thanks to the taxi in front of that corolla which turned abruptly. Very minor (and kind'a stupid) accident ... at b/w 5 and 10 kmph... but unfortunately I was looking at the oncoming traffic while turning left on a main road, for that one second when the corolla suddenly hit the brakes! Ended up breaking my bumper and light. The estimate I'm getting for the original light is Rs. 11k from one place and 9k from the other. The taiwan-made is available for around 4k i've heard.

    @tyrone_40

    Did you get rid of the squealing noise from your brakes? I started getting similar noise (only in reverse and hi speed braking) after I got my brakes serviced long time back in Karachi. Took it back to the guy... he did some adjustments and its okay now. He said pads were okay, no replacements needed.

    @MarX

    Auto/t is better for overall driving. But most serious drivers always go for manual transmission. Generally, people prefer auto/t in the city and m/t on long drives.

    All right, here's some info for 1SZ-FE engines (these are the 1000cc engines most of us have) from the user manual of a '99 yaris.

    Engine OIL

    Preferred method for checking engine oil:

    When engine is at operating temperature, turn it off for few minutes to allow oil to drain to the bottom of the engine. Wipe the dipstick clean and push it in as far as it will go, or the reading will not be correct. Be careful not to touch hot areas.

    • 1.5 liters oil needed b/w "low" and "high" marks
      /li
    • Avoid overfilling, or the engine could be damaged
      /li


    Total oil capacity (drain and refill)
    • With filter replacement: 3.2 liters
      /li
    • Without filter replacement: 2.9 liters
      /li


    Type:
    API grade SH, "Energy-Conserving II"
    API grade SJ, "Energy-Conserving"
    ISLAC multigrade engine oil

    Recommended viscosity (SAE):

    (temperature ranges in degree Centrigrades)

    20W-50 -7 to 38 (and above)
    15W-40 -2 to 38 (and above)
    10W-30 -18 to 38 (and above)
    5W-30 -29 (and below) to 38 (and above) - marked as preferred in the manual

    So 5W-30 is best for all weather... but in Pakistan, 10W-30 would be as good too.
    Zic A is 5W-40 and Zic A+ is 5W-30. So A+ is almost the exact oil preferred for the car!

    Recommended coolant:
    Toyota Long Life Coolant or equivalent (ethylene-glycol). Use 50% mixture with water (distilled) for protection down to -35 deg C and 60% mixture for protection down to -50 deg C. Do not use more than 70% mixture!

    Total coolant capacity:
    With heater 4.7 liters
    Without heater 4.3 liters

    Other stuff

    ATF capacity (drain and refill): 2.0 liters
    Type: T-IV - change only if needed

    Power steering fluid type:
    ATF DEXRON II or III

    Max fuel capacity: 45 liters

    Max allowable speeds in km/h (auto trans):
    1- 44
    2- 82
    3- 120
    O/d- 153

    Toyota recommended tyre pressure (with original tyre sizes):
    33 psi (front) and 30 psi (rear). I normally keep them at 32 (front) and 30 (rear).
    For the original spec compact spare tyre: 60 psi

    I think I paid Rs.1,000 for 1 year in case of my '99 vitz. Exact displacement is 990cc I believe.

    Great to see you back in action.

    Sorry to hear about your damage. Thank God it was not serious.

    The spare tire pressure is about double the normal tires pressure; couldn't get the logic behind it !?

    @X4ce
    What about your matching back light search results ?

    For 2004 model they charged Rs 1450. I think its because of latest model.


    @akifnaseer

    Brother, i looked everywhere even went to bilal gunj but no success. They said, you got a unique light which is expensive and is not being imported anymore. They had similiar lights but reverse light color had no match. So what i did, i got 2001 model pair in Rs 3600.

    thanks for the nice post, a lot of useful information in a comprehensive way. i'd try to remember this page 155 for future reference

    @akifnaseer
    this more pressure in the spare tyre makes sense to me, since it has got almost half the surface area of the normal tire and its supposed to support the same weight so it has to have double pressure in it (if you remember pressure equals force per unit area, science )
