    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

    Rear camera is easily available on car entertainment shops ranging from PKR 1500 - PKR 7000 depending upon quality
    It's Pioneer Carrozzeria AVIC-MRZ 05... does it include the Nav System as well? I have no idea.. As of now, it plays the Audio media, but not the Video

    Sir, I don't mean to challenge your experience and since I'm new to Vitz so I'll just seek further clarification. Do u think that an engine as new as Vitz 2013 ( even if it's 50-100k driven) will have oil residue clogged around VVTI cam n oil galleries? Secondly, when we decide to use the best available engine oils available in market, Why do we still need additives? Is a good oil not optimally formulated to take care of the engine, especially when one of it's main functions is engine cleaning? Thank you

    Engine cleansing through oil is good enough but keep in mind that why the old version vitz is suffering from excessive knocking issue because we had previously experienced by putting all of the duties on regular engine oil. Like. Engine lubrication., thermal absorption, and cleansing on oil which in end result's in knock issue which cant be resolved later due to the damage already done. So by the experience of those faults which we had suffered in past directs us toward the fix viscosity synthetic engine liquids along with oil additives to suppress those symptoms and protecting engine from any sort of harm like low lubrication problem at peak performance. Increased thermal efficiency to keep the internals temperature low, and super cleansing and cleaning properties to keep the engine oil. Galleries tidy and shiny to perform better than stock vehicle. Is the concept is clear or should I had to describe it more briefly / in detail.

    This model is capable of playing audio formats only it has cd player so it cannot read dvd, and i think it is also not capable of reverse camera too, yes navi is there but as its a typically japanese player so it will have maps of japan only, any car entertainment shop wala will guide if maps of pakistan can be added or not?

    Well explained bro... so now the second issue is the quantity. Vitz needs 3.5 lits of engine oil. To be precisely accurate about the requirement of oil in the engine, we need to precisely work out the amount of engine oil + additives (ceratec can & motor protect can). Can u please tell me the exact amounts ? Do these cans come in one quantity or differ? R these all LM products? I just want to be sure that engine doesn't get over filled. This time my bro took the car for oil change and he put Total Quartz fully synthetic 5W-20 in Vitz. Next time I'll put in 5W-40 as recommended by you. Thanx.

    I'm also interested in leatherite material seat covers. Can u recommend any Vitz specialist with regards to seat covers? Pindi / Islamabad. Though I love it's original seat fabric but it's because of the colour that I want to cover them.. thanx

    My thoughts exactly - most German and American engine oils already come with detergents to clean the engine along the way- i always wondered if flushing the engine was such a good idea why would the maintenance schedule of all cars include it?

    please refer to the manual for engine oil. 5w40 is thick for vitz and will not give optimal fuel economy. do not use a thicker oil than a 30 grade oil. i suggest to use 0w30 or 5w30 all year round. car manufacturers know whats best for their engines. the engine runs at the same operating temp during both winters and summers. unless u take the car for continuous high speed racing do not use oil thicker than a 30 grade.
