    this is true for petrol engines and if any repair to be done it will not cost fortune ! go for any Nissan or Toyota YOM after 1998

    Electronic Carburetor Tune

    Seal - from Auto A/C repair person, people who repair injectors has spares but they wnt give if ur not repairing/cleaning injector do take sample(old seal) save ur time. rubber horse - any auto shop will give. so take sample(old horse) tell that u will be using for TB, they will give correct type which is expensive (1 feet 250/- ) also keep the distance between TB and MAP sensor very short. u only need flat screw drivers to open TB housing, and good allen key set to unbolt then take out injector,replace the rubber ring(this is not an ordinary ring which should work in high pressure+petrol) between injector & TB injector holder

    Route To Passikudah

    went batti same route no issues, driver from office took pasyala > narammala > Wariyapola>Padeniya > thabuththegama > kekirawa > habarana > polonnaruwa > to batti thambuththegama > kekirawa road - not the best Avg speed 70-80Km/h time 5 1/2 h to polonnaruwa (weekday, 5 a.m - 10.30 a.m) 45min stop for baraeckfest @ dambadeniya (after passing town 300m to ur left hand side > best plc in this route for me) btw anyone got update abt Kurunegala > Dambulla road status ?
  9. Spectra is one of the best cars i ever drove(my friend's car). 5 people on board not a issue, good space, confy seats etc etc, 8km/l with A/C in city 12 Km/l Max in out as for owner, if ur family & friends think cars only made in japan only. then re think ! if not go for Kia any car with regular services on time + average rev can use that engine for long time, suspension & interior depend on ur family size , age and number of kids under 10.

    Civic 2003 Sluggish Acceleration

    You said " I do not experience this issue on a cold start" ....... so if i were u, will concentrate engine only, so SCAN it !!!!!
  14. CE110 - petrol ? btw since u still smell petrol, check following 1. Throttle Body - if not clean for more 10,000Km clean it check for vacuum leaks 2. Plugs - check and replace if necessary, (if not used same brand heat range difference apply) 3. Scan - check for any error codes , 4.If u think all above expensive just remove ur car battery negative wire and leave it for over night then re-plug, you may feel like issue fixed, but it may come again, if so start from step 3 to 1
  15. did u replaced the oil seal ?
