  1. Thanks zeristo & peugeot407.. ok now I got the whole reason behind it. When the the car is parked and the owner is not available, it would show the road-legality of the car. Thanks
  2. Dear friends, i have a small clarification to make. Once I was warned by a traffic policeman if I don’t have the copy of car Rev. License pasted in my front windshield, he will be issuing a spot fine. How is that possible? Can any friends knowing the legal background tell me how it will be an offence since the original was avilable with me inside the car? is there any provision in Motor traffic act saying a copy of rev. license at the front is more important than the original inside the car..! What if I have only the copy pasted buy no original with me at the moment..? thanks
  3. Importing Honda Hornet 250cc

    I think you can register any motorbike less than 400cc now- if the YOM is not ab issue. But a hornet will cost you more than 1.2mn Rs
  4. Struck By Lightning

    Yes rumesh, What I said regarding the Faraday cage is incorrect. (It doesnt happen due to the rubber insulation as I thought earlier)
  5. Struck By Lightning

    Guys, What if there was a heavy rain, and the tires were wet. Contaminated water can conduct electricity.. And the story of the Faraday cage is no longer there.. Just my thought. But just to tell you guys, actually in engineering theory - the last few kms of lightning strike is going from the ground to the sky.. and not vice versa which I learned in the university
  6. Vitz Ksp90- Whistling Sound From Silencer

    What if there is a tiny leak or hole in the muffler? It might cause that sound as well. Just a thought though...
  7. Hi dushan, You has two leaks earlier. But are u sure this time also is it a leak? Did they measure the refrigerant pressure this time too? In my 2000 cuvic too i had an AC issue. Can u verify this time whether when u press the AC engage switch, u can feel compressor engaging? Because there was a AC hi/lo pressure switch in the AC filter in my car. But i thought my compressor or pressure switch gone. But finally there was a loose connection in that pressure switch which will cut the power supply to the comprssor clutch relay coil. In this case too- you will get dry air blown only. Just one possibility. If this is not, then a failure is happening when the system gets hot -> means clearance in metal pipes will occur. Check whether r they using o-rings wherever essential in such as conpressor connections.
  8. Engine Stops When I Turn The Ac On

    Still the OP didnt reply to this thread with the car model & year and is it auto gear or manual. If he can identify the compressor clutch relay, he can remove that and try to turn on the A/C. Sometimes the condensor fan motor may have a short too. It is very rare an auto gear car will stall in this situation. Still we cant tell anything unless the car model is told and the type of A/C system. Whether one common fan or seperate condemsor & radiator fans!

I have a CVT in my 2000 Vi-RS, and when you want to overtake and press the accelerator pedal fully... The engine goes to about 5,000rpm. Few seconds later you see the speed is 100km/h fcame from nowhere

Thanks for even going for extra distance.<br /> I will start looking.. May be a Ceres or Carina GT. But I will go for a well maintained car.<br /> With the current one (it is also 17 years OLD) I got lot of repairs, I will definitely let you guys know once I made my choice.<br /> <a href='http://forum.autolanka.com/user/45859-nsiva/'>@ nsiva </a>Do you still own the car? Tell me more about your experience as an owner? :prankster Sorry bimal I havent owned any carina Gt. I was trying to buy one for my friend. ?
  11. Is Safe To Own A Carina Gt

    OP, This was my question sometime back, if you are interested. I had a similar reservation.. http://forum.autolanka.com/topic/16616-toyota-carina-gt/?fromsearch=1
  12. <blockquote class='ipsBlockquote'data-author="Rumesh88" data-cid="285037" data-time="1445481945"><p> Check if any one of the vacuum hoses has become leaky or disconnected particularly the one that connects the PCV valve to inlet manifold. As others have pointed out above the problem may not be due to a timing issue. When was the last time you got the engine tuned up (throttle body cleanup, plug and air cleaner change etc)</p></blockquote> Runesh, When tappet cover was removed mechanic removed one hose from it. I will double check that. Actually a full tuneup was done in staff*rd within 10,000km. So i also now believe this may not be a timing issue. Thanks.
  13. <blockquote class='ipsBlockquote'data-author="MV-5" data-cid="285032" data-time="1445454348"><p> this is not related to timing.<br /> check plugs, plug wires,ignition coil assemblies.</p></blockquote> Hi MV-5, Before T belt change, these two issues were not there. These started immediately after the replacement work.
  14. <blockquote class='ipsBlockquote'data-author="sira" data-cid="285030" data-time="1445450918"><p> Hi<br /> T belt change is not a big deal and almost all cars are same. how ever it will be better if you get this corrected by Honda technicians .i can send you a number for a good technician<br /> <br /> there will be white color dot on the crank pulley (TDC), you have to lift the wheel and turn the wheel (with gear 3,4) till you see the white dot on the pulley . then open the valve cover and see the cam shaft wheel is in the right position. cam wheel also got 2 white marks which must be at the right position . if not then wrong timing. <br /> <br /> </p></blockquote> Thanks Sira. I ll check like that.
  15. Issues after timing belt change I have a 2000 Honda EK3 civic and recently changed its timing belt as it has run about 200,000km. It was done in a local garage as the agent told that timing belt is not available with them. So i dropped the idea of doing that in colombo. After the belt change two issues have come. 1. When suddenly accelerating from stop position, or with bonnet open when i pull the throttle lever - engine jerks as if the engine mounts are broken like that. 2. When idling at parking gear, the rom doesn't vary much. But the car periodically jerks and when i watch the exhaust pipe - it gives some hiccups like jerk (is it called missing? This happens when engine has reached operating temperature. Since thus was done in a local workshop, the mechanic told he has not replaced honda belts but has done toyota belt changes. He said that the crank pulley rotation is anti-clockwise and had doubt about the crank pulley bolt loosening direction. My car's crank pulley bolt needs a special tool for bolt removal- which he didn't have. In toyotas according to him, when one wrench is put on crank pulley bolt, if we crank slightly - bolt will loosen. He tried that but the bolt got further tightened with some jerk. Since he didnt have the special tool, then he hit slightly the crank pulley on the timing mark groove while holding the wrench in crank pulley bolt to loosen it. Can it damage the crank bearings and create issue? Is this bolt loosening method the reason for the engine mount jerk when accelerating (issue 1). Regarding issue 2, i checked when he aligned the belt drive pulley & camshaft driven pulley in timing marks. But not sure whether timing should be adjusted on hot engine. Guys please give your valuable comments on what i can do to get rid of these issues? Note: When he showed the first engine start after timing belt changed, engine running was perfect as it was a cold engine. The hesistation/ miss started when i arrived home only! Thanks in advance..!
