    Default Vitz - 2013 - Advice regarding newly purchased car

    Dears AOA... I recently bought a 2013 Vitz, 50k driven. Imported in Mar 15. Need advice on whether to change the Engine, CVT oils or not. If Yes, which brand is recommended for both oils. Secondly, it has a Pioneer Carrozeria DVD but won't play Video. Audio working good. Thirdly, advice on seat covers. I also like to install a rear view cam. Which one no where from.. I'll be grateful if the expenses r also mentioned by respected members alongside their advice.. thank you

    Liqui moly fully synth 5W-40 for the engine oil along with 1ceratec can and 1motor peotect can. But be sure to flush up the old engine oil with same LM engine flush. And then change it with above mentioned oil and treatments you will love your ride when you drive it.

    It's 2013 model with 50,000 KM on the odometer. Why not 5W30.

    5W40 shall be too thick at this stage. He may start using 5W40 once 100,000 KM are done.

    Please re-check. CVT transmission oil change is recommended to be replaced at 40,000 KM here at PW forums.

    owner manual can help you regarding oils
    mention the DVD model number so it can be sorted out
    Net material seat covers are usually heat friendly but they catch dust the most will cost you around PKR 3500
    Leatherite material are easy to clean costs almost same
    Rear camera is easily available on car entertainment shops ranging from PKR 1500 - PKR 7000 depending upon quality

    Change your CVT oil(use Toyota one), get your spark plugs cleaned, change Oil/Air filter, Break oil should be checked, if it's too dark in color then it should be changed as well, I recently used Zic A+ 5w-20, you can use 5w-30 as well.
    Keep good care of CVT if you want it to last long. As far your last part, i got back view camera installed for 3500rs, go to any car electronic/audio shop and they can install it for you.

    I have checked cvtF change time in manual but not mentioned. in uk and Europe for yaris/vitz company recommend 100000 miles. but here in pk if you visit authorised 3S shop there company recommend to change it after 40k. when I ask why it should be changed as there is no problem I am facing with transmission. . His only answer was... janab ham to altis auto ka 40k per change kerty hain...this appears non sense to me.

    I had maintained so many of these new version vitz few out of 50 vehicles had original mileage on them if the vehicle is driven 50000km on odo it must have been driven more and in result the meter is reversed back for getting good resale price. It can easily be checked through techstream. 2nd here in pakistan. The 5W40 is a good go for these engines. Many of my clients had used low viscosity engine oil like 5W-20 5-30. In their new vehicles and after driving 5 to 10 k their engines were more noisy than of normal vehicle. So 5W-40 is best for all jdm engine brands except for some diahatsu,nissan & suzuki 660cc varient engines which are designed for low visc oil. If not followed properly they suffer from fuel eco low problem.

    Dont forget to flush the old oil with engine flush as it will clear the oil galleries from sludge and also clears the vvti cam gear oil galleries for better flow. And also use some oil additives to keep these jdm engines run smoothly and can handle the abusive driving of our daily routine drive.
