    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!!!

    @Zolojazz
    I'll get the engine exhaust/silencer checked. Thanks.
    The noise is noticed in first and second gear only.

    @eguru
    Your last two points...I am experiencing the same issues.

    @antiflag

    same red fluid medicine for your car but thats the best solution...

    i.e.

    1. reset ecu by removing negative terminal of battery
    2. this seems to be with your advancer/emulator if the problem is only on cng
    3. cover your air pipe like .. check out my post on page 80 https://www.pakwheels.com/forumreply_az_TopicID!22811~ForumID!28~page!180~pw .html

    how about air condition, when the AC is turned on, do you get even more problems in pickup?

    how about 'S' gear, do you get more problems or its better?

    Hey ZJ,

    I'll remove the -ve terminal, but the problem is both on CNG and petrol. The extreme pickup when u press ur accelerator is moderate on petrol and nil on cng. I have to turn the ac off when in idle condition so the car can get enough pick to drive, otherwise ac while driving is ok. but i also have minipajero so i know in automatic cars, the pickup when u fully press the accelerator is extreme. "Dunno about the S gear".. pls help. One mechanic has told me he'll charge Rs.1300 and he'll clean the sensors, and service the throttle body.. i dun wana get ripped off. filter isn't in perfect condition but the mechanic says throttle needs servicing.. what do i do?

    Based on all the discussions, I came to conclusion that Vitz engine is noisier when u compare it with other cars of same CC. So u have to live with it. This after checking all the points suggested by the experts.

    @vitzrules
    As there is no dipstick in 2005+ models (not sure about ealier models), I was told by Toyota Hong Kong that there is no need to the change transmission oil until 100000km; as it is in a box, so no danger of it getting spoiled. But if u have problems with the gear then u could change the oil earlier.

    Power steering is also electric and it does not use oil.

    Great discussion going on in here(Y)

    Any engine running on CNG produces more noise than on petrol. My 2004 vitz also does when the tuning on CNG is not perfect. After 1-2 months of struggle, finally i've tune-up my vitz to perfect settings. Its giving me around 120kms per Rs 320 worth of gas in city and 160+km on highway.

    hey guyz,

    A mechanic i went to is charging me this for the following things:

    Service throttle and ECU setting on CNG =Rs.1300
    Opening gear box, cleaning filter inside=Rs.800
    New gear oil ( 4 boxes ) 500each for =Rs.2000
    New original brakes =Rs.3200
    brake installation and servicing for =Rs.800
    Discs surfacing through leth machine =Rs.400

    My car has a poor pick both on petrol and cng, and doesn't accelerate with power when you fully press the accelerator, brakes are not 100%.

    Kindly let me know if this is actually justified what the mechanic says.

    Thanks

    2 zubairmanzar.
    ASSALAMO-ALAIKUM first of all.
    You were saying that vitz 2005 is noisy,Yeah it is.Because its a 3-cylinder engine car.Only 1999 to 2004 old shaped models are the 4-cylinder ones.So i dont need to mention much just clearifying the fact.I m not offending to any owner of 2005 model.Sorry if anyone hurts.
    Best Regards.

    @ SaM_vitz007 and Punk
    I really appreciate your opinions and they are of very help.
    However, I really didn't know that the noise is due to 3 cylinders. Moreover, the engine was not that much noisy and now there is a significant difference.
    The noise is not noticed in idle position rather on accelration in first and second gear only.

    By the way im thinking of getting the original brakes installed on front and taiwans at the back, limited budget.. wot do u guys say?

    Also, what is PCV valve, and where and for how much can i get it ? i've heard it should be replaced every 15k, pls help
