    Model: Getz 2008 1.1L
    Mileage: 23,000 km
    Background: Binili ko ng 2nd hand * 20,000 km. Noong una, di ko pansin na mahina ang hatak, pero nung inaakyat ko na sya sa flyover, megamall parking and other inclined roads, hirap na hirap sya umakyat kahit 1st gear lang. Nakapag drive na ako ng Getz 2008 before, malakas humatak at talagang makakaayat ng baguio. Pero etong nabili kong 2nd hand, imposibleng makaakyat kahit tagaytay lang. Di rin ako makaover take ng maayos kahit tricycle lang nasa highway ng Naic Cavite!!! Hirap na hirap talaga and makina...kahit patay ang aircon.

    Observations:
    1. Mahina humatak (from stop, overtake and inclined roads)
    2. Halata ang engine noise
    3. Matigas ang clutch pedal
    4. Matigas ang accelerator
    5. Mababa RPM (around 1,200 - 2,000 RPM) kahit na todo apak ng pedal pag aakyat sa flyover (low gears)
    6. Fuel effeciency: (City = 5-7 km/L) (Hi-way: 10 km/L). Di normal sa Getz to kc yung Getz ng pinsan ko kaya ko ng 20 km/L sa highway
    7. Matigas ang shift gear. Yung sa pinsan ko sobrang lambot, kahit isang daliri lang.
    8. Parang na Ondoy kc may kalawang sa loob ng fuel tank (parang nabuksan na)
    9. Check lahat ng ikot ng gulong, smooth nag free-wheel

    Diagnosed for possible clutch problem:
    No clutch slipping found. Hindi nag oover rev kapag tinapakan accelator. Engine dies pag binitiwan from stop (walang tapak sa gas). Walang unusual sound sa clutch, except that medyo maganit pag nag shishift ng gear. Baka slave cyliner to. Pero maganda talaga mag engage ang clutch. Nag check na din ang mekaniko, ok pa daw clutch.

    Improvements done:
    1. Changed engine oil (Castrol Magnatec)
    2. Changed gear oil (caltex)
    3. Changed spark plugs (Bosch platinum)
    4. Changed oil filter (Vic)
    5. Changed fuel filter & pump (OEM - these are broken parts)
    6. Changed high tension wires (OEM)
    7. Adjust valve clearance - tune-up

    Result after improvements:
    1. Engine noise improve
    2. Engine sound is great pag pinapaiyak (gear dis-engaged)
    3. Mahina pa din humatak
    4. Effeciency slightly improved (city 7-8 km/L) (Hi-way 12km/L) --> di pa din normal

    Suspect ko baka from input ng transmission to differential. What do you think guys? Meron pa pang pwedeng suspect?

    Compression test comes to mind. OBD-II diagnostics would also tell you if the O2 sensors are still getting readings that are within specs or if the sensors themselves are defective. How's the burn on the sparkplugs?

    Check also the obvious like stuck brakes.

    This one is the closest.

    Baka nga low engine compression ito.

    Worst comes to worst, baka engine overhaul na ang pangmatagalang solusyon...

    Ha, ha,.. akala ko ba ayos ang clutch, no slippage.
    Kaya ako natawa kasi sasabihin ko sana ibaba ang clutch kaso pag dating sa bottom..iyon.

    No offence po, talagang nagulat ako kasi halos na cover na lahat ni sir ang dapat gawin except clutch. peace

    Ako rin natawa at nagulat. Sinubukan ng mekaniko paandarin from full-stop at 3rd gear, umaandar sya at di namamatay makina. Repair cost = P10k ++.

    Actually last month pa to na repair, ngayon lang ako nakapag update. Sa ngayon, good running condition na sya, di ko nga lang sure kung good as new kc first car ko to at gamit na gamit na sya....
