    check the white sticker on the inside of the driver side door for correct tire pressure on all four sides.

    for maintenance....did u check with toyota if they have anythng available.

    since these auction vehicles dont usually come complete with service history...it is a good idea to all the basic work done at the same time.

    oil change, all fluid change, brake maintenance, basic tuning including plugs, wires, dcap, rotor, pcv etc.

    check with storm/sameer..he got a vitz recently and he can give u more info on how to get started.
    I would rather be exposed to the inconveniences attending too much liberty than to those attending too small a degree of it..and so restriction of free thought and free speech is the most dangerous of all subversions.

    hello!
    1st comparing mehran with VITZ...................!
    not a good idea.....better compare with some MARCH or CUltus or SANTRO...
    anywayz......its mentioned on Driving Side Door mostly...so get the proper reading from there and plz buy your own Guage not worth than 250/- tyre shops guages are simply suckers...so get you own.....!
    maintain weekend oil checkup of

    Brake Oil
    Power Steering Fluid
    Radiator Water(Daily)
    Engine Oil
    Tranny Oil(for Auto)

    Prefer Caltex Oil on all.........if u need better...ZIC is the one stage ahead....!
    change engine oil after 4500km max.....!
    never ever get water inside engine room while servicing car or you end up damaging some sensors or electricals inside.......!
    Thanxxx

    Thanks to all for the replies... I will contact storm for his personal experiences..

    @SER_GTR
    i dont see anything on doors, though there is one sticker on drivers door but nothing written about tire pressures except japense...
    can i add distilled water in coolant reservior or i need to add only coolant? if yes then which brand coolant is best.

    Hello!
    as far as tyre pressure was concerned so...for 13" in my car
    i prefer
    in Summers....
    30 front
    30 rear

    in winters...
    28 front
    30 rear.....
    so maintaining that with weekend check with your own guage let you fell a smooth drive( if some rock won't stuck in tyres grips....:@ i am tired of them and it did specially in new tyres...)
    anywayz...use Orange color Collant by CALTEX....it was good....1/2 litre tin of japanese collant also works fine..it was of i think 50rs...in green colored tin can.....it was also good........
    i prefer to use collant alwayz bcz it keep engine internals corrosion proff and clean and helps also in winters as it was anti-freeze...
    Thanxxx
