    Lightbulb Plz Sort out my 1.3L Vitz 2007 Issues

    Peaceful Ramadan to PW community,

    I need experts opinion about the issues i am facing with a recently bought Vitz of mine 1300CC. the car was a self import of 2012 Dec by a reference and has ODO of 50000K at that time, the car hardly drove 12000 in Pak and remain parked and unattended as owner was abroad mostly. I am very certain based on my experience that ODO is genuine as car condition speaks for itself unlike mostly vitz i have seen have 150K ODO and spoiled by youngsters during my search for a nice car. Upon purchase i done following works


    1. complete new fuel pump and fuel filter assembly, Genuine Toyota
    2. iridium spark plugs
    3. throttle body service and all sensor cleanups
    4. Cat converter service, infact complete exhaust flush out
    5. CVT oil change and Valve body service, Genuine Toyota CVT
    6. LiquiMoly fuel additives to clean fuel lines

    NO CODE on scanner after above service

    When car was bought, it drives very poor no pickup probably cat was chocked and or fuel pump was weak also, anyways I believe the above work should bring at least phenomenal change in drive and pickup but thats not the case, considering a hatchback with 1.3L and auto it should have decent pickup, i am not expecting 0-100 in 10 sec but a decent drive.

    In reality the car survives till 40-60km in fact sometime a felt up and down in pickup, the engine or exhaust sounds louder till 100 however, at/above 100 it drives fine and sound went normal. Major problem i felt when i went for Damen-e-koh, it was horrible...For everybody info i kept and driving cars for last 35+ years and have fair knowledge of maintaining cars.

    The mechanic is with me for last 10+ years and have decent experience

    Kindly guide me where is problem as i have to travel to northern areas on this vehicle bought specially for this trip.

    If its available in half cut than i will give a thought and budget, gained lot of experience from converting my accord and lesson learned is to go for half cut with complete wiring and installed ECU otherwise our Kabli Pathan bhai will gonna a make hole in the pocket ending paying twice against the budget...

    BTW, the 1.5L half cut was just 14,900KM driven...

    problems mentioned at the start of thread.

    slow initial response, smooth and consistent drivability afterwards, fuel consumption and abnormal gear shifting and most important is weak engine compression

    Engine compression improved from 120 to 180 now...pick is now solid

    fuel consumption....12-13km with 100% Aircon and heavy feet in city driving...complete in tank fuel system replacement which helps

    Transmission shifting...smooth and timely shifting under all conditions...transmission valve body was serviced

    Many rounds of Liquimoly fuel additives to clean entire system...lesson learned to use high octane or use OCTANE BOOST for smooth running as JDM cars are Euro4 fuel compliant

    plugs changed to laser irridium

    air filter was replaced with toyota genuine but that even perform so got "KABLI" original air filter from half cuts...trust me the car runs and sounds smoother with these JAP parts...collected a few from junkyard to save time till next visit.

    beside above many little steps to improve the drive....the car now runs like a charm

    forget to add...changing O2 sensor makes a hell of difference in car pickup....although there were no codes and check light but read on net that this should be changed after 80K...mine was at 62K when bought...all together...transmission valve body service, engine compression and O2 sensor make it possible to run it like charm and like a 1.3L hatch...

    sir you can find IR enabled cam and get it installed in the same place. if it doesn't fit than you can change the place and install the cam around number plate area.
