    Default Vitz pick up,consumption,sound problem diagnosed

    well a colleague of mine purchased a Vitz and after sometime went for general tunning. extremely happy with the fuel average and pick up.......

    a few days later he noticed the car's pick up was flat,
    engine sound struggling,choking sound,
    fuel average went from 15-16 to 9-10
    annoyed he thought that the air filter he purchased is causing the problem. air filter was again changed with a better one but problem did persist.
    finally went to Toyota motors Aab paraa and here is what they found.....

    Cat converters reduce harmful exhaust gases and reduce pollution, but in return cost slight HP loss, it is mandatory in cuntries like Japan, but in pakistan, it is not required at all, so you can just through it away and live with

    @nabeeltahsin
    not sure exactly what the hiss is ut it's possibly a leak in the joint, have it inspected by a mechanic/ exhaust welder.

    @mwaqar
    due to the fuel in PK containing lead it will eventually choke your catalytic converter and cause a blockage which will leade to so much back pressure that eventually your engine will choke to death.

    There are no -ve results as far as i can see as long as the3 job is done well, since even my mercs had the cats removed when i brought them from the UK (same reason - lead in fuel in PK)

    @nabeeltahsin
    thats exhaust leak probably because the joint nuts are not full tight or uneven.

    @ jamil1985
    even the silencer repair replace people can remove it

    @crashD
    i'm sure it'll free up some power of you raccord but it might give you some electrical faults (which you can cure with a programmed signal sent to the O2 sensor)

    @mwaqar
    i joined him at 4:30 and he told me about it. he even took my vitz for a run.

    @kiani1
    as far as hash has told me the light doesn't come on but worst case the signal can be altered from the O2 sensor (that's why i spoke to kkoool about it before i did it, and he'll be able to replicate a "good" signal if needed)

    @kkoool
    slow down you are causing the car to distort with frictino/speed! LOL!

    @Storm

    If there is a problem of the engine check light coming on, then don't you think it would be better to have the CAT removed from Toyota, so if the engine check light does come on, they can rectify it there and then.

    Just a thought..............
