    Default Lahori Vitz owners please help.

    Salam,

    I have 2000 Vitz. I have same knocking problem. I read all the forums related to this problem. The conclusion I got is to remove the CAT CONVERTER.

    But I am really unable to find a good mechanic or cylencer boy in Lahore who can remove this. I called to Toyota Jail Road and Toyota Township motors but they said that we do not even touch Vitz as we dont have Vitz's manual.

    Please Lahori guys help me regarding this. Suggest me any good mechanic who can remove my car's cat converter. Please also tell me the price for this work.

    Thanx in advance.

    Best regards,
    Hassan Khan.

    Do you own a Vitz? I read many threads and all the Vitz owners give the same suggestion to remove CC.

    i do not have a vitz but trust me the CC has nothing to do with the knock prblem... its koz the vitz engine isnt designed fer our normal octane rrating...n that causes knock.... shell super unleaded has 90 octane so that is a lil solution fer it... warna high octane daalo n try ur car out it wont knock a bit plus give u good mileage..... removing the CC would do nothing much just give u a hint of performance as the exhaust restriction would reduce....

    Yes you are rite. I bought the car 2-3 months ago. But the problem I'm facing right now was faced by many Vitz users. So its not a big deal. After removing the CC I hope my ride will work fine.
    LOGAS told me about Jameel mechanic. I talked to him. Me and Jameel fixed a meeting on Saturday. I hope Jameel is going to fix it perfectly. Lets see whats gonna happen on Saturday. I'll update you all on Saturday.

    @ Smart Khan

    I am also having the same problem of knocking noise in my Vitz. Replies regarding Octane issue is technically right and you can find some answers to this at following link:

    http://www.bp.com/liveassets/bp_internet/australia/corporate_australia/STAGING/local_assets/downloads_pdfs/f/Fuel_news_why_does_car_knock.pdf

    I have tried this by filling three consecutive tanks with HiOctane (Total) but it never helped me in reducing the knocking noise. And yes the milage in HiOctane is also lesser than the normal fuel. So I dont agree with knocking issue related to Octane in particular case of Vitz. I think you are right with removing the CC. I am also looking for a good mechanic in Lahore for the job. If you feel satisfied with your todays meeting then I will also follow you in removing CC.
    So please update on the issue as soon as you find time to respond. Thanx

    Waqas

    @waqas1972

    First of all thanx to LOGAS.

    LOGAS refered me to Jameel. I went to Defence to remove CC. The Cylincer mechanic did good work and removed the CC. He did not only remove the CC but also removed the whole dholki and fixed a pipe and welded it. The pick of car improved alot. But the knocking problem was still there. One more problem added that my cylincer is vibrating alot and giving sound of sports car.


    Today I went to Heaven CNG and converted my car to CNG. The total package was of 35K. Landirenzo Kit with Landirenzo Emulators and Advancers. I also changed Air Filter and bought Guard air filter which costs 250. Those guys did a good work and the pick of car is same like petrol. There is not much difference.

    Now come to the knocking problem again. The car does not move fast from zero km/hr with AC switched ON on CNG. I had to switch off the AC and when car accelerates I switched ON the AC and it worked OK. The CNG heaven guy told me to refill the petrol tank with High Octane and drive at least 100 KM on high speed. Insha Allah knocking will be gone and ofcourse this thing will increase CNG's performance too.

    I refilled my Vitz's petrol tank with Hi Octance and went to motorway. I went to Sheikhupura on 135 KM/hr above speed and then came back to Lahore on same speed. The top speed I gained was 141 KM/HR but due to policemen i had to reduce the speed otherwise it could go further more. The picture of ODO is attached. After driving so fast I felt that knocking problem disappeared. After coming to Lahore I stopped the car and drove it from zero km/hr. There was still no knocking prb.

    Then I switched the car on CNG and see its performance and amazingly it was working very good on CNG. It was my first day on CNG. I hope no problems will occur in future. I'll update you all with more experiences.

    One problem is still there that cylincer is vibrating alot and giving sports car's sound which I dont like. I'll go to mechanic soon and will try to fix this problem too.

    Lahori Vitz owners please help -741918

    In Pak we get substandard petrol because of mixing, Japs did a study on this some tme ago and decided that latest tech engines are not much good due mixing in petrol to save costs, consequesntly reducings its Octane number. Therefore, as per my experience either using high Octane or mixing high octane with super stops knocking in vitz and other modern engines cars. I dunno what we get here in Pak that e can trust
