odd questions

Post by Reap3r_za » 01 Feb 2016, 14:13

What is the general fuel consumption for the 1.6 16v Siena's? As mine is a thirsty b@stard. I think I'm lucky if I get 10km/l in town.

Any suggestions what to start looking at to safe some fuel? Don't really drive with a heavy foot... #BigSmile

It is due for a service again month end, so might as well tinker when it is on jackstands.

Also whats the best plugs/oil etc to use when doing a service. Just when with the stock stuff last time but though you guys might have some better input.

I'm also looking for a FSM for the car. Can't seem to find anything on the net about it.

Thanks in advance.

Hi Bud

I know with my buds car, if the 16v cam timing was out it made the car run very weird and it would be either ridiculously heavy on fuel or totally the opposite.

You need special tools to do the cam timing, I don't think you will be able to adjust that yourself. As for ignition timing, that is all done with the cars ECU, I don't think you will be able to adjust that too. #Crying

sigh... so I'm pretty much screwed...

I've worked mostly on Carbed cars and my 200SX, but that has a Cam Angle sensor I could adjust to play with timing. No idea if the Siena has something like that.

Might need to buy the cam tool to do the cambelt replacement in any case.

Ok, Thought about another issue I'm having.

The car struggles to go into 5th gear. What i've read is that it could either be selectors, clutch or the reverse selector not coming down completely.

But wanted to check with you guys if you had similar issues perhaps?

Also where's the best place to get spares for these cars? Midas? Autozone? Masterparts?

Any of those shops will stock Siena service parts, for more specialized parts you will have to go to the agents.
