    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!!!

    Hello Fellow Pakwheelers,

    I have been on PW for quite some time now albeit on the silent side using it mainly as a source of knowledge from our many expert members here. Loveable got me hooked on to Belta when he started this thread and Murtaza_murti paved the way for me to buy one myself once he started posting here and helping people out. This is a shout out to them and to all the other members who are helping turn n00bs in to experts by sharing all their knowledge selflessly and taking time out to answer queries.

    In lieu of this I thought I would put up an interesting case of a problem with my Belta which might intrigue some of the experts here while helping anyone else out there who is facing the same issue. I will try to be as clear as possible:

    Car Specs:

    Toyota Belta 2007 1.0L 1KR-FE
    Imported 2010/Reg 2011
    Mileage : 50k on the ODO
    Perol, no CNG

    There are two separate issues, since I`m not sure if they are related or not I will list them both out.

    1. A couple of months ago the car parked in an open area at night and it was raining heavily. In the morning when I started the car a strange sound was emitting from the A/C vents. The sound only came when I revved the engine and it was kind of like the sound you hear when a pot of water boils. Like a bubbly water sound but only when I revved the engine. After revving the engine 4-5 times the sound disappeared. Since then the sound comes every time I start the car after a prolonged resting period such as when parked at night and dissipates after a few revs. It does not come when the car has been parked for only a couple of hours or so. Besides the sound there was no impact on the car otherwise, it was functioning normally.

    2. This started happening about 1-2Months after the above issue. One day while on my way to the office in the morning, about 10 minutes in to the commute the car suddenly lost power, even with the accelerator pedal floored the car was vibrating heavily and not going above 30KM/Hr. I reached office, parked the car and went on about my day, in the evening when I started the car again to head back home, the same issue was there, the car was not going above 30KM/Hr. I took it to Honda Pit Stop where they examined the plugs, coils, air filter, air intake, cleaned the throttle body, opened the engine hub and manually checked the top of the pistons (not sure what they`re called) and hooked it up to the computer scanner and checked. None of this resolved or identified the issue. Then the fuel pump and filter was checked, the filter was replaced since they decided the pump was OK. The issue still remained. They say the only thing left to change now is the CVT fluid and if that fails then they are stumped.

    I have reviewed the CVT change procedure as listed here by Omer Saleem in the DIY projects thread and see that many of the mistakes the mechanics make during the change were repeated by the Pit Stop staff when I asked them how they will do that, due to this I refrained from getting the CVT fluid changed as they were really just guessing.

    The Symptoms: This ONLY happens when the car has been parked with the engine off for 1-2 Hours +. After driving the car for about 10-15 minutes the car becomes completely normal and the drive smooth as before.

    1. When the car is started after resting for 1-2 Hours + you can hear the engine missing. During the first 5 minutes the car will stall if the accelerator is not pressed (as in the case of a CNG car if the "raise" is low and needs adjustments).
    2. After 5 minutes the issue of the car stalling subsides, however the car jerks and won't go above 30-40KM even with the accelerator pedal floored. During this the engine will be doing a lot of "missing". The issue remains the same with or without the AC.
    3. After approx. 10-15 minutes of driving the car will become completely normal and smooth.
    4. The issue will be repeated once the car is park/off for 1-2Hours + even immediately following a driving session.

    Since I showed the car to two different reputable workshops/mechanics and they couldn't diagnose the issue, I turn to my fellow Pakwheelers for help and advice.

    Good Luck!
    And so as it happens much too often, some of the most complex problems in life have the simplest solutions.

    The solution to the above problem for the benefit of anyone else who might have/had the same problem : Servicing/Cleaning the Fuel Injectors. Within 10 mins, my Belta was pack to being the timid babe it was.

    Side note, this episode did have its upside - I found out who to go to if a problem ever occurs again with my Belta or any other car. As I said in my original post, mechanics I have been using for almost a decade at two company authorised reputable workshops could not diagnose the issue after prodding and using the hit/miss approach for over two weeks. In the end someone recommended a workshop which was said to specialize in Japanese and other hi-end vehicles. I wasn't really keen on having another mechanic tinker with my Belta without an inkling to what the problem was but after 2 weeks of getting no answers I was desperate. The owner of the said workshop was given the briefing exactly as I have stated above, he sat in the car, took one round around the block and had immediately diagnosed the issue.. which was simply cleaning the fuel injectors which were choked due to bad fuel. 10 Minutes later Voila! the car was back to being its usual self.

    The Workshop : SUNTECH on Gurumangat Road in Gulberg
    Owner: Mr. Sana
    Number: 042-35754598/99

    Directions: From Mini Market go towards Jail Road, turn right on to the road which has MCB Bank at its corner ( the turn is adjacent to Salt n Pepper Grill) Turn left after MEMORIES restaurant.

    PS: They are expensive but then you can't be cheap when it comes to your car can you.

    Yes, Simply revolve it anti clock wise, And it comes off,

    This is not possible in 99-04 Vitz.
    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.

    The best way to acheive ideal mileage from a CVT is to understand that ur drving a CVT and not a BOEING 747,

    -The car speeds up gradually, Pushing the pedal hard takes you no where just a huge bhhhrrr sound.
    -Try PSO pump under karsaz flyover/Shara-e-faisal.
    -Use 10 liters of hi-octance once in atleast 5 refills.
    -Try fulling the fuel tank rather then getting fill ups of 500 each.
    -Just after you fill up the tank, Get the tire airpressure to 30 PSI in all four tires, Na kam na ziada. (this one realy does magic i didnt belive it but it realy does magic.

    -Also get some air on the airfilter.
    -For the safe side clean the plugs too.



    after all that has been done, Do you feel that your car drives heavy? or struggles?
