    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!!!

    It was a bucket and he mixed roughly around 1 cup of fairy in the water enough to soak it horizontaly. Before cleaning, he dipped it vertically and no foam was coming up from the CAT. After soaking it for 1 hour, he again dipped it and the foam was flowing through CAT upwards with black particles on it.

    If you have gone to some other good workshop, it would have cost you 6000. But anyway.. keep us updated how the average is now..

    when your vitz starts acting up the first check the plugs and replace if they are old and install a new air filter, if things get better than good, otherwise take it to someone experienced and who has a good scan tool, usually it is the oxygen sensor that goes bad.

    Hello guys!! I own a Vitz 2009 in Karachi. I got my japanese navigation system stolen. They also got the whole console (that silver panel and grey strips having passenger light and emergency switch). Now want to put in another LCD, probably a cheaper one as I am low on budget. LCD because I got back camera installed.
    I read the forum and got to know there is a rockmars player VIT-002 with the OEM look. In the market (Regal), it is costing around 16.5k. while at Tariq road I saw the same OEM look player in a display being sold without a box at a price of Rs 11.5k +2k for the panel.

    What would be the difference between both? would there be any major quality difference as both are chinese?

    Engine oil suggestion please? Havoline or Zic (10W-30)? Also, my vitz is knocking a bit. I need to get it's throttle body cleaned and a computerized scan done.. Where should I go? I live in DHA Lahore so surrounding areas would be preferred. And toyota 3S would not be preferred as they charge an arm and a leg (Personal experience on JDM cars)

    That OEM look dvd player you are talking about, its the best you can buy in 16000 range. Cheapest Pioneer dvd player starts from 24k. Do not buy any other dvd player except Rockmars as its a good brand in Chinese. They also give you 6months warranty. Audio and video quality is good on it and it has many features including bluetooth, sd card, usb, aux, camera input, amp output, sub output, frond and rear rca... What else you want for 16k? Other same look DVD players are from Premier and Dellson but they are crap..

    in case your vitz has the 1krfe engine, then i can arrange a sensor, a friend has it, that will probably cost much less than what toyota ask, but before that get your existing sensor tested by someone experienced and never let anyone spray carb cleaner or anything like that on it

    Use Toyota Genuine oil that comes in a Tin pack 5w30.. It costs about 3400. If you want to save some money then buy Havoline formula from some company operated Caltex pump.
    Here are some good oils for Vitz..
    Toyota tin pack 5w30
    Total 9000 5w30
    Havoline formula
    Zic XQ 5w40

    Oils for best possible fuel economy are Zic A+ ans Zic 0w30.

    I'm sick and tired of my car's average issue. It doesn't give more then 7-8 km/ltr. I've had the plugs cleaned and checked, oil changed, throttle body cleaned, air filter changed, etc. Any advices? I'm going to get it scanned (computerized) tmrw, hopefully. And what's the roadside name for Cat Con?

    Also, I can smell a strong scent of petrol whenever the car is started and idled. It feels as if petrol is not being burnt properly. The car feels heavy to drive. I have not removed the Cat con! Where is it located in 2003 model?

    I'm sharing my experience...
    Never ever use Zic oils in your cars.. Particularly 0w30 and Zic a+. Zic xq is good but very expensive.. Not worth it.
    Never get your fuel filter cleaned. Get it changed if you are sure that it needs to be changed and get it done from very expert. If in Lahore, Toyota Airport motors are the best. Once fuel filter is opened, it can not be closed properly and keeps leaking slowly and you will end up bad fuel average and fuel smell in your car and bad fuel pressure.
    Oil for the best fuel economy is Shell helix hx7 E. 1900rs for 3 litres. If you want to spend more then Toyota tin 10w30 is best. As discussed with an automotive engineer, outside temperature does not have anything to do with the type of engine oil. It all depends on the condition and age of engine. Vitz does not need synthetic oil really.. Unless you want to drive for long intervals.
    50% normal and 50% high octane gives the best driving experience and best fuel average resulting in economical fueling.
    There is nothing as 'tuning' of Vitz. Keep using high octane and you will have your throtle body cleaned and no Cat Con clogging.
    Reset ECU if you change anything in your car. Changing fuel type, oil type or tyre size etc.
    Do not use Alco air filter. They used be good but now crap.
    Never remove cat con. Clean it or if its dead blocked then get another one from Bilal ganj.
    Turn off the A/C before switching off your car.
    Warn up the engine for about 1min before driving and do not drive aggressively until 5kms.
    When idle.. Change gear to neutral.
    If soft tyres then 35 air pressure and if hard 30 in all tyres.
    Total fuel stations are getting white petrol now a days so try to avoid it.
    I checked today my average. Full tank upto the cap. 82kms driven in Lahore with ac on all the time and then filled again upto cap and 5litres were consumed.
