  1. Hi experts, I recently bought (a month ago) a 1.3 K12 (CR12 engine) automatic with 60k mileage. Previous owner used Mobile 1000 (10W 30). However I am seeing that my car is doing 9kmpl in Colombo. I just searched through internet and found that ideally this should do around 12-13kmpl. I am not too harsh on accelerator within city driving and so far I didn't take this car for long drive. Previous owner told he already did a engine tune-up recently and I can see the receipts for it. I have two questions. Can I switch to Mobil 2000 (10W 40)? Why this small piece need 9kmpl within city limit? Is this normal or something I need to worry about? Thanks in advance.

  8. Hello, I have Nissan March AK-12 (YOM 2007) and currently done 72k. Recently I have noticed when I start it (cold start) engine running with bit rough sound and after engine running few minutes that sound decreasing gradually. I suspect that due to the engine oil that it used and I have checked with the service agents. They used 20W-50 Castrol GTX oil which is not recommended for AK-12 as per the manual. Couple of days back I have taken my car to have the regular service and I asked them the issue I had and use a lower viscosity engine oil. This time they used 5W-30 Castrol GTX mineral oil for my engine. After service is done I travelled 500km ride and noticed the engine sound is bit increased than previous and when I accelerate it produce a sound coming from beat silencer. I visually checked under the bonnet and there were no any suspicious remark like oil leakage. I’m so worried about this and I’m clueless about this. Is this happened due to oil change or any other reason? Does it want to flush the engine before use different grade oil? Car engine model - CR12DE Recommended engine oil – 0W-20 Thanks, Buddika
  9. Hello, My car has an intelligent key. Recently when I try to turn the ignition switch it doesn’t allow to turn and key indicator lights in red. Then I place the key very near to ignition switch for few seconds, and then I can turn the ignition switch as usual way. After that the key indicator is blinking in green for 5-6 minutes and off. I have a doubt on believing the reason for this issue would be because of the draining key’s battery, but still I can turn on and off the door locks reasonable distance away from the car. Actually will this be a battery draining problem?
  10. Hello Friends, I’m experiencing a strange thing that my car (AK 12) giving a continuous ‘beep… beep…’ sound when I apply the brake. That ‘beep…’ alarm is buzzing until release the brake paddle. There is no dashboard indicators are appearing also. This is not happened always but most of the time it happened. I don't have any idea why that happens, please share me if you are having any thoughts on that. Thanks

  12. Guys, I had 165/70-R14 Goodyear tire (stock tires) in my AK12. I have recently replaced both front tires and replaced with 185/70-R14 MAXXIS tires. The shop owner asked me to have a wheel balancing after replacing tires. I drove in the expressway and felt that my car was consuming more fuel than previous times. Could anyone tell me the relationship between increasing of the tire size, wheel balancing and fuel consumption. Thanks.

  15. Hey guys, thinking of upgrading my ride Got utterly fed up looking for used cars after the recent price hike, so I had to trim my budget a bit. My budget is around 2.5 Mln, maximun 2.7 Mln, did some research and found the 2007 Toyota Passo and the 2007 new Nissan March AK12 with the silver rim. The reason why I'm sticking to small cars is because my wife is also driving it and she can't handle a big sedan, i know too bad for me but what to do. I know the March is bad on fuel compared to the Passo, but its a bit cheaper. can u guys please enlighten me on what to buy from these two? or any other used small car which is fuel efficient and relatively not so old (2007 or above) that I might have missed. Any 2007 Passo or 2007 March AK 12 users please give me your experience on these two. Thanx a lot guys...
  16. Hi Just wanted to share with you my Nissan BK 12 (2002) experience of 1 year and some service information and what i used for service. Purchased last year July for rs. 1.7 million with 58,000 km on it. Seems good deal i guess. Initially i purchased this with intention to migrate to a better vehicle within 1 or 2 years coz i actually didn't had any experience with Nissan March. (I had only driven, Carina, Allion, Axela and Corolla) After purchasing it i really amazed especially regarding the the reliability, ease of handling and better fuel efficiency (13.5L on avg.) I have driven 20,000 kms so far. Some maintenance info might be helpful to you: Engine Oil: every 5000kms - Havoline 15w-40 with deposit shield(Mineral)-Rs. 2950-No issue so far. VIC Oil filer - Rs 950 -every 5000 kms I strongly suggest to go for 15w-40 or better oil(10-40, 5w-40) due to climate conditions of Sri lanka. Prices of other brands i found out just FYI (4 liter cans-Mineral oil). As at July 10th around Ja Ela area Castrol GTX- Rs. 3200: 10w-30 and 20w-50, Mobil Rs. 3400 15w-40 Valvoline Rs. 2500 20w-50 Laughfs Rs. 2450 20w-50 Automatic Transmission Oil Recommended Nissan Matic J - Use ONLY Matic J compatible fluid. I used Havoline ATF-J -- do not use Dexron III only compatible fluid . I changed through ATF exchange machine at Laughfs centre ( did not remove the oil pan. ( i had a question whether there is a filter in Automatic transmission to be cleaned at ATF change for March K12. Please update if anyone knows about this) Please share your thoughts about March K12 too.
  17. I have a Nissan March K10. It failed the vehicle emission test. I went to a technician and he said there is a problem with carburetor jets (as i remember the jet size is 87). I could not find jets for my car, what should I do? narrow the area using lead or something? Plz give me a solution.
