    Default VITZ & HEADLIGHTS

    Salam all,

    A frind has a BIG problem. its a 2003 auto vitz and all of a sudden there is a MAJOR decrese in its power . the car just makes never ending noise of high reving and never shifts and the speed increse is minimum. It just happend over night. We recently went to gujarkhaan at night and on GT road flat out it hardly reached 90+ kmph. it full time patrol. We have gone alot faster in the same vitz but there is somethin horribly wrong. Please could you tell me some good workshop and what could be the cause ?


    Q2:

    I think my H4's are getting dim.
    what should i do ?

    Thanks

    For your second question, if youre using HID's, im in pretty much the same predicament. U need new bulbs which cost 5k! What a rip off!

    Hello!
    i think its time to get your O2 sensor checked........then Throttle body.......and then last but not least......Vitz came up with Catalyzer....its used for emission controls....as here in pakistan...we won't get much lead free fuel.....that causes blockage in Catalyzer resulting in great power loss also...!
    so i think its better to remove it...its located beneath car after exhaust manifold....!
    1st checked your O2 sensor is clean and working properly and then get the throttle body serviced...after that look for catalyzer......make sure your Vitz was not low on Auto Tranny oil...check it also...!
    about lights...so check wiring...and make sure its not heating up or breaking up......also check grips...maybe they are loosened or heated up.....!also check for dust.....! and clean it firmly if needed..!
    Thanxxx

    Hi I had the same problem with my 1.0 vitz vvti, sudden loss in power here in Dhaka, Bangladesh. It was a problem with the 02 sensor. As soon as I had replaced it the car was back to normal.

    Heres are a few pics of my car:

    Are there any good mechanics in Karachi. My friend also has a Vitz and he's not happy with his Mechanic coz he does not know much about Vitz but thinks that he knows a lot coz he doesnt want to lose his customers

    @tyrone_40:
    Try Toyota Defence Motors, you have to understand that our road side mechanics maybe able to build a mehran from scratch, but they are way behind when it comes to electronics or anything related to it like EFI. You need to get the system checked with a computer console and all that or reset the fuel management data stored by the system, etc.

    I was thinking to get a MegaSquirt ECU and convert my car to EFI but finding an intake manifold for cuore is next to impossible so till I find somebody who can fabricate it, its not gonna happen. But in the process I now totally understand what is involved, how it works, and how many more things can go wrong in the car.
    Waiting for the day people start obeying laws of the road while on the road... sigh!

    Thanks ias and tazzix

    He bought new plugs + air filter.
    The catylic converter was all clogged up , even surprised the mechanic. He cleaned it and removed the filters. The sound is a little heavy but its running aurite now.
