    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!!!

    Cool oil conundrum

    Hey. I have 2008 vitz japanese import . All I wanted to know is, the recommended motor oil grade for my engine (1KR-FE) is 5w-30 which also recommends that in case it's nto available, try using 10w-30. Now since most most people told me, ZIC is good, so that's what I'm look for. I can't get 5w-30 easily in the market. What viscosity should I use now , 5w-20 (ZIC A+) or 10w-40 (ZIC A) ? I don't wanna hurt my engine at higher rpms, cuz that's what I mostly drive at

    Find the clear, long road and you just floor the accelerator with all windows closed. Now closely hear the engine noise. If you feel gear shifts exactly like you hear in manual transmissions when it's changes gears, it's not CVT and has set of gears, whereas if you feel it's accelerating continuously without shifts, and engine is running exactly proportional to car's speed, then your car's CVT. If the observation lies in between, it's still CVT . Cuz sometimes CVT in Vitz becomes buggy - but it's normal

    ^^ in case you dont use 5w-30, then the better alternative is 10W-40.
    by the way Shell Helix HX7 (blue pack) is exactly 5W-30. i am using it in my KR-FE motor at the moment. However, i will shift to 10W-40 during summers InshaAllah, as the humid and higher temperature of Pakistan demands a higher second number (ie, 40 or 50 rather than 30 or 20). In winters i will shift back to 5W-30 InshaAllah.
    rest choice is yours.

    ^ This is a common issue, So far no solution is found, Some people say, setting the CNG pressure valva fixes it, But i dont have CNG so cant assure you if it works, But this issue remains, my suggestion is to "keep distance"
    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.

    if you floor the car does it shift early at around 4500 rpm? i owned a platz 4-5 years back it had the same problem on CNG. i don;t remember what the green thing with a CNG kit is called, it has two functions. i had to get another emulator or something installed for the car to get to 6500+ rpm shifts. that as far as i remember now resolved my break issue as well. check what device you have with your CNG kit. you need both, as in the picture

    another issue i developed with cng later before i sold the car, the A/C stopped working when the car was idle. im no one to pass judgement but CNG is not good for cars, drive on petrol, drive slow, low accelerations, drive a little less:p

    thanks. I'll use 10w-40 .
    By the way i was wondering does the climate really affect engine ?? Because I thought thermostat keeps the engine at a steady constant temperature regardless of the weather outside .

    Copied from Yaris/Vitz 2007 User Manual.

    FOR VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH CATALYTIC CONVERTER CAUTION:

    If a large amount of unburned gasoline or gasoline
    vapors flow into the converter, it may cause
    overheating and create a fire hazard. To prevent this,
    observe the following precautions.

    (a) Use only unleaded gasoline.
    (b) Avoid idling the engine for more than 20 minutes.
    (c) Avoid performing unnecessary spark jump tests.

    (1) Perform a spark jump test only when absolutely
    necessary. Perform this test as rapidly as
    possible.

    (2) While testing, never race the engine.

    (d) Avoid a prolonged engine compression
    measurement. Engine compression measurements
    must be performed as rapidly as possible.

    (e) Do not run the engine when the fuel tank is nearly
    empty. This may cause the engine to misfire and
    create an extra load on the converter.

    http://jpcenter.ru/m?name=catalog&mn...5&rec=10042850 in the Vitz catalog, I read the tank is 42L. Maximum fuel that ive got in is 39L till the mouth of the cap (i drove it more then 50 kms on reserve light) That means 7-8 liters atleast when the reserve light come on. But 5 liters is a safe estimate.

    Usualy i get 36-37 liters after driveing for 20-30 kms on reserve light. With average of 11.5-12.75 km/Liter roughly

    Since the 99-04 Vitz had the meter light adjustment option, New Vitz not having it confused me, So while playing around i learned.

    If you want to increase the meter display light (when lights are turned on) press the trip a/b/ODO button till it comes to ODO, Now press it for 2-4 seconds and light increases, This way you can adjust the brightness.

    Its helpfull for instance today there was rain in karachi, i was driving with lights on in day time, So meter visibility was extremly poor. The brightness control helped.

    True, But the exact quantity goes upto 45, the tank is 42L to be exact and filling till the fuel cap includes pipes etc, Hence the first light always goes beyound 80-85 kms and the others remain under 50-65 per bar
