    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!!!

    Hi Guys,
    Just had my first trip outside the city on my newly acquired Vitz (2004). Went to Islamabad from Lahore via the motorway. The mileage turned out to be 15 km/l. I had bought the Vitz 2 days before Eid, and this was the second ever petrol filling I had on it. For the first filling, which I consumed solely within the city, it gave me an average of only 9.65 km /l with AC. I was really surprised with all this, because I was expecting atleast 13-14 in city and 20 on the highway. I had the engine oil, spark plugs, and oil fileter changed before leaving for the islamabad trip. Any thoughts on this, guys? I really want to get to the bottom of this; why such a low mileage, even after getting the essentials changed. I had this done at the Toyota Township Motors. Is the CAT converter to blame for this or are there other areas i should also look into?

    btw, they also cleaned/serviced the throttle body. and if u ever asked them who convinced them to put in T-IV atf (especially the lead guy - asif i believe) i'm sure he'd tell u it was some cranky bearded guy!

    am glad u made the written complaint! we're proud of u! if the oil chamber is dented a lot, then a change is recommended - otherwise, as long as the volume of the oil is within the limit, should not be a problem. Issue of overfilling is when the oil volume is actually more!

    the atf level should always be within the C-H range. After a long drive (hot tranny), it should touch the H level and not go above it - that's what really matters.

    about when i did it, i kept on checking it on a cold engine and sucked slightly more than needed. then confirmed on a hot engine and added a little (fresh). just wanted to be safe than sorry.

    @mohsin_

    there's this place on korangi road with a very good reputation for tuning and fixing issues with the newer cars. i don't remember the name. if u're going from defence towards the pso pump (near flyover) on main korangi road, there's this toyota dealership on your left. right after toyota dealership, it's in the next left turn. got it's name written in blue. u'll see mercs and bmws parked there.

    @waleed80

    No one is dumb We're all here to learn. Atf is automatic transmission fluid.

    @amoizp

    Btw I got a call from Toyota and the man asked me when it would be convenient for me to come for the checkup and to resolve my complaints . Actually my other complaint was that they also charged Rs.500 labour for tuning when they only did a plug change

    Funny!!! When I asked them whether they also cleaned throttle body, the guy didnt know what I was talking about. So when I go for my 60K maintenance I'll ask the incharge (Khurram, I believe) to clarify all this. Did they do all the jobs u mentioned in the 40K maint. like Fuel filter clean, atf filter replace etc.? Btw what is throttle body called in urdu

    I will try and get the chamber replaced but will have to get the part. The engine oil is about 1/2 an inch above the F mark, which I think is due to the damaged chamber (pushed upward from underneath). Will this oil level cause any problems ?



    Regarding good tuning shop, is it Prime Defence Motors? Just a thought that does the tuning etc. Saw an ad in Sunday's Dawn and was just wondering.

    Sorry for the late reply mate, Well yes, the first thing to target for you would be the CAT, get it removed. Secondly there can be hundereds of reasons for a bad average, like spark plug gaps, engine tuning, advancing, the fuel that are using, the engine oil number (do number waalaa phaddaa) etc. The best thing would be like Waleed suggested, go to a good pro (not that one ) and get your car checked and fixed for the problems identified.

    @essjay

    well, again many things can be the issue. u didnt mention the air filter. what's its condition? and is the car having a hard time accelerating? and when u accelerate, do the rpms (engine sound) increase corresponding to increase in speed at the same time?

    cat converter shouldn't give a problem so soon. plus, if u drive a bit harsh (floored accelerator)... this is the average u get. hope o/d is on! and although this is a long shot, but keep a track of the oil level. it shudn't go down at all. and do show to a reliable place.

    @tyrone_40

    i just got the plugs changed from a simple place. so didn't ask them to do any tuning. the 40k maintenance included only service charges of everything (mileage was 80k actually at that time). They charged Rs.2650. Rest was separately charged (fluids etc.). I had bought the atf filter from another place and gave them to change it while they flushed the older atf.

    yeah, i think the place was called prime defence motors!

    throttle body in urdu?? wouldn't know! "throttal ka badan" maybe? but commonly, mechanics refer to it as "carburettor" too!
