    Default Need help regarding Vitz end 2007 new shape with wooden interior

    Hey PW Gurus!!I have recently bought Vitz end 2007 (990 cc) new shape (wooden interior, fog lights, side mirror retraction on lock/ unlock, reverse driving sensors and distance calculation on central mirror) from Islamabad but I have shifted to Lahore soon after for my new job. Would anyone be kind enough to help me out with the following:

    1. Read a lot about engine knocking at PW and so filled one fourth of the tank with HOBC but knocking yet to vanish. I keep on reducing speed to lower the gear. Please advise as to why other JDM cars have no such issues on local low octane petrol and what I need to do?

    2. I am using D for normal drive. Need clarity regarding usage of S and B gears.

    3. I drove from Isloo to Lhr via motorway on tank full and later drove within Lhr to reach a trip tally of 505 Kms so far and two bars still remains. Do I need to get spark plugs, throttle body, timing belt, sensors etc worked out / replaced? If yes, what model of denso iridium spark plugs are suitable for my car?

    4. How may I figure out its transmission type i.e. CVT or AT? and what transmission oil should I use? what are the signs to get it changed? By the way what would be the best engine oil?

    5. It makes a noisy start with an abnormal odour from exhaust? What needs to be taken care of?

    6. It Navg. / DVD seems useless so far. I have been able to listen to FM or have used aux cable for music from my cell phone, any software to get its CD / DVD option working?

    Last but not the least, what would be the best place to get the works done mentioned under point 01 through 06? Many thanks in anticipation

    Vitz doesnt come with wooden interior, it wud be aftermarket.
    the 1000cc one does have vibration issues, but shouldnt be too much.
    get the throttle body serviced.
    the transmission is CVT, use Toyota TC gear oil only. get it changed ASAP, and it will last fr approx 40,000KM.
    use iridium plugs, ng ones.. green i think,not sure... ask your toyota dealer.
    hope this helps.

    Well, the wooden thing may not be original but it is some special edition for sure. It has blue illuminated "vitz" text on foot steps of all four doors (when opened), got reverse senors and their digitized / pictorial result displayed on central back view mirror. The car importer called it Vitz RS, by the way. So do you mean all vitz are CVT based? I will surely get its throttle body cleaned. Thanks dude!!

    Any Guru to answer the rest of Q's?

    Thank you so very much Zeegee63 for all the info!! However, I have read somewhere at PW before that liquimoly can damage engine's rubber seals and therefore should not be used, is it true? Secondly, my car is late 2007 model (new shape) so do you think I shouldn't change my gear oil ever? Btw, I have no issues with gear shift so far, its smooth!!

    You mean to say water may get inside throttle body? so I shouldn't service it? And do you have any recommended place for these jobs in Lahore?
