    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!!!

    @Essjay: You have asked the question that has never been answered properly. I guess, they don't have an English manual and if they do, I guess it's so sacred that sharing it will only cause destruction with blood and gore to him who shares it

    Ok, that's all suppose to be sarcastic... but funny one. As soon as I ever find an English Vitz04 manual, I promise to all of you that I'll upload it within hours and will share the URL right away.

    Tyrone_40: Can you please also tell us the cost of ATF fuel and others jobs that have done so far?

    - How much did you pay for you car's registeration?
    - Service charges?
    - Places where you got this work done.

    Thanks!

    @all

    First of all salam and eid mubarik to you all. I ve been away for long but been reading all the posts.

    I ve read somedody asked about OD button on the vitz... friends I dont remember the post but I saw pictures of the vitz manual over here that say OD is only for the fourth gear ..... nothing to do with performance and economy or stuff like that..... OD on you get fourth gear shift OD off you only go till 3rd gear..... thats it no more science.

    About the Oils ZIC, Mobil 1, Castrol Magnatec are Synthatic oils CXT, Helix are Natural Oils once you,ve changed to synthatic you cant go back to natural that distroys your engine..... synthatic gives more milage per change.... Naturals are only worth 3000 to 3500 KMs then you change both filter and oil. I recommend Mobil1 or Castrol Magnatec they are available here. I would've said AMSOIL but thats not available.

    Fuel ---- Octane is good and expensive... super will do the job but mixing sometimes 50/50 can help clean the fuel injectors and throtle body systems (desi tareeka)

    CNG is not my choice in Vitz because you are going to cut off the technology involved in the ECU and fool it with an Emulator and Lemda.

    Tyres.... well against every one's advice I've Installed 195/60 - 15. I know all of you are true about touching body, suspention issues and the speed o meter....... but only me, my wife and my little daughter travel in the car and I am not a rash driver so I am satisfied that they might save my life someday.

    Lots of common problems are arising in vitz as I ve read over here. These are expensive cars to keep so Buyers do keep this in mind.

    Now Finally I would like all of you to please answer One thing ....................... Can i know any Work shop with all the gadgets and experties to check up this car. Islamabad or Lahore is not the Issue.

    Waiting Anxiously for my good friends help.....

    @zeeshansyed

    - I paid Rs.13,500 for my registration which was done by the guy I purchased the car from.

    - I did it at Toyota Society Motors on Khalid Bin Waleed Road, the service charges were as follows:

    - ATF was 3 cans @ 378/- per can. They used 2.5 cans and gave me the remaining to keep with me.
    - 4 plugs denso (i think) and they were @ 150/- per plug
    - Servicing / Washing charges was Rs.450/-
    - ATF labour was Rs.300/-
    - Tuning was Rs.500/- I dont know wat this was for as when I reached home I realised that there should be no tuning in vitz, and they should not have charged Rs.500/- for tuning.

    Anyways now its too late to argue about it

    Why is it that once you go back to naturals from synthetic oils it destroys the engine? I have done my 1st oil change with Shell (Yellow can). Is that natural oil?

    Thanks.

    @tyrone_40

    Shell and Caltex sell Natural Oils, Castrol only sell synthatic by the name Megnatec. Mobil 1 is a good synthatic oil available ZIC is abundently available... thats why people use it and are satisfied...... My knowledge on conversion from natural to synth is based on reading different forums all over web regarding Vitz problems.

    did the acceleration problem u mentioned, stop?

    i went to the same guys for my 40km service... and they overfilled the atf by almost half a liter! so do re-check the level.

    Oh Great!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! When they showed it to me after driving the car it was about slightly over the Full Mark. Say about 1/2 a cm but will check again. The acceleration problem is not so noticeable now as before.

    So what did you do then? Did u drain out some?

    Oh and when I asked them if it wont be a problem that its over the full mark on the hot indicator, they also said to check it again after some driving and it will be ok.

    By the way, what all did they do when you went for your 40k service and how much did they charge?

    @Tyrone: Superb color mate! its a pleasure to the eyes (Y)

    @gyzer: Try Autoclub, they are expensive but much reliable. Toyota Rawal could be another option.
    There is one thing I would break up over and that is if she caught me with another woman. I wouldn't stand for that!

    Today I checked the ATF after driving the car for about 15 mins and while letting the engine idle in P mode. Guess what, it was about 1/2 an inch above the hot mark.

    On checking the engine oil, even that is about 1/2 an inch above the F mark This was changed from the petrol pump in clifton.

    Now what do I do?????????????????? Should I go back to them and ask them to remove some of the oil. Pls advise.
