    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!!!

    Salaam,

    I bought a Vitz 05 couple of weeks back. The car is Masha'Allah excellent in consumption wise and power wise.
    But I have one observation/concern. It knocks too much on slow speed, or pushing the accelerator slowly.
    I have tunned my car as well, cleaned thortle body, cleaned plugs, changed oil, both oil and air filters.

    Used the synth PAO (LG) oil and car smooth running really increased. Much diff. felt from normal Havoline Oil.

    All the good mechanics are saying that this knocking will not be completely finished, it is due to the fuel.

    So what experts on this forum says. Also what about the GPS system in the car. I don't have the software for it. Where can I find one?
    What about if the player can be used for DVD playing or VCD?

    Looking forward to your prompt replies.
    Allah hafiz,
    Irfan

    @Eguru
    it could be a problem with tappet, or Valve, Valve problem is very common in Vitz and valve problem causes the knocking and slow acceleration at the start, check compression at each Cylinder. Low compression in one cylinder usually indicates a bad exhaust valve. Low compression in two adjacent cylinders typically means you have a bad head gasket. Low compression in all cylinders would tell you the rings and cylinders are worn and the engine needs to be overhauled.

    wasalam,

    you may need to reset your car's eprom... you can do this by simply removing negative terminal for 20 mins

    and take plug it back in, and see if you can verify the results?

    so which oil you're using now?? how much is it for

    @All
    I drive 2005 as well. Experiencing the same weirdy engine noise when you accelerate after a stop.
    Went to the Toyota Western motors. The guy there was not much of help and just said that this engine noise is common in all cars of this model. But I remember well that it wasn't there.
    So experts please help. ZoloJazz will surely know

    Hi guys.. Just bought a Vitz 2000, need your help on the following:

    1. How to get the car serviced, people say dont get the engine room water washed at service stations as it will screw the sensors

    2. The pipe (quite obvious) on the right side of the air filter cover, coming from inside the body, it's cut in between so could you please tell me what was the purpose of the pipe as in other vitz's its going beneath the airfilter into the manifold i think.

    3.Any good mechanic in karachi who know's what he's doing, and has proper knowledge of vitz can be of great help.

    4. i want to change the oil, oil filter, air filter, automatic gear oil, any other stuff i should get changed or replace, since i bought it.

    Would really appreciate your help.

    Thanks

    @all

    if you're mentioning engine noise when you press accelerator, let me tell you a few things.

    in 2005+ models of vitz these two are fairly new things:

    1. the acceleration pad is electronic i.e. it doesn't have a wire.

    2. ecu controls car race/tuning, i.e. for example if your engine rpm drops for any reason, ecu will detect it and increase the rpm automatically, i.e. no manual race up/down. To my own experience I have noticed that ecu supports RPM to some very low level and picks it from there, never let the engine stop, but if you've got lots of carb and choked air filter, your engine may stop and you will have to restart by cranking the self.

    in terms of how to accelerate your car, this is a *standard* way of doing so in automatic trans car + electronic accelerator + cvt.

    * when in 'D' mode
    1. To give acceleration press the paddle 10-25% of total paddle movement allowed
    2. To maintain velocity (to maintain current speed i.e. for example if i am on 80kmph), keep pressing the paddle 10%.

    so in theory, when your car is in 'D' transmission mode, only 0-25% of the paddle can be pressed. If you press your accelerator paddle more than 25% in a car which is auto + electronic accelerator, it will only create engine noise!!

    * when in 'S' mode
    1. To give acceleration when your car is less than 26kmph, you can press till 25% of accelerator pad
    2. Once your car touches 26kmph+ (we're now in 3rd gear optimum speed), you're free to use 25-100% of your accelerator pad.

    So just to summarize this all, what I have learnt is that when in normal mode ('D' gear) you really dont need to press more than 25% accelerator at once at any speed. The 25-100% accelerator paddle is for 'S' gear in these CVT cars

    I hope it helps

    I am really impressed with your knowledge of this car.
    However, trust me, this noise wasn't there couple of months back. My driving habits are same which are gentle acceleration and decent starts and stops.
    What else besides pressing the accelrator would contribute to this noise?
    Thanks.

    Welcome to "Vitz owners club" and congrats for your new ride.
    1. No problem in washing the engine. Dont use very high pressure water. Just use sprinkled kinda water. No problem with me since the date of purchase.

    2. Are you talking about the air intake pipe?

    3. Danish mechanic
    Contact number:-03002975023
    03212399023

    4. ATF can be changed after 40,000kms, if needed then. Check power stearing oil, coolant and brake oil.

    welcome man.

    1a. be very sure to cover the fuse box, abs sensor with plastic shopping bag! its a must

    1b. be sure that water your car being serviced is freshwater not saltwater.

    1c. make sure that your engine is NOT very hot.. like you're just coming from your home directly for service, not from a long ride. hot engine exterior + cold water=bad

    @zubairmanzar

    Its my pleasure.

    If that's the case then I think its with some packing which connects engine exhaust with silencer/cat pipe.

    Checkout the smell of your silencer fumes.. Does it smell anything?

    Once you accelerate after a stop, for how long does it make such noise?

    Do you keep checking your engine oil regularly? Have you ever noticed if your car is burning oil, i.e. oil is below mark after a few weeks without an apparent reason?

    Since the noise is coming after to accelerate after a stop, this seems to be with gear shifting/cvt!

    There is no problem i feel of slowing acceleration at start. The PICK is fine, Alhamdulillah.

    How do I check Tappet and Valve?

    zolojazz, I used PAO (LG) synthetic oil. It is approx. 2400 Rs. for 3 Liters.

    How much Hi-Octane can suppress the knocking? Have anybody tried that?
    When I start the car in morning, then I can feel unburnt gasoline, then later it doesn't smell.

    Also I felt that the vibration caused after stopping is variable. May be if someone also observe this, if you use petrol from diff. stations then sometimes there is no vibration and sometimes there is.
