    Default Problems with VITZ on CNG

    Hello... i have a 2002/03 vitz running on CNG for last 1.5years... it was all doing fine but last week it started vibrating at zero speed... so i have to put it in neutral otherwise engine used to stop.... so i got it checked from Nazir autos G-8... they told me that there is some issue with tappets and as it has hydraulic tappets hence cannot be adjusted but head needs overhauling..
    after 3 days i got my car back with all the valves were replaced and it costed me nearly 14K to get it fixed.. as per mechanic, its normal with a car running on CNG... if i run my car on CNG to save money and in the end i m spending 15K per annum to get it fixed, i think its better to stick with petrol... in short i'll recommend not to use CNG if there isn't much difference as in long run, u have to pay more

    I got my Platz changed over to CNG about 7 months ago and after 4 months the same guy who changed its coil springs told me that the shock absorbers need to be changed (They were perfect when i was getting the springs changed).I dint heed his advice and one of the rear suspension springs gave way

    was the problem fixed after head over hauling?..why do i feel that you were conned..any ways one way or another you end up paying more on a CNG ride..even if there are any savings, i feel they are not worth due to time lost at refilling/car fixing/tune ups/pain and suffering etc lol
