Proton Persona 1.6M

Recommended Posts

You just need to put in the right gear with at least 3,000-4,000 rpm when climbing. Engine won't spoil one. On the contrary, climbing using low rpm will kill the engine fast.

manual is better in control of the climb...for auto..I'm not sure how it measure up......never did drive such small car up there before...

if D cannot climb, down shift to 3. if 3 still bo lat, down shift to 2.

if 2 still bo lat, go to L.

all the while keep the right foot steady. you may feel a jerk when the car downshifts to power up!

Campro engine is mid/end performance ie pick up is sluggish cause engine is a bit high rev plus heavy chassis and outdated Mitsu 4 speed auto.Manual one is slightly better.

Hi,

 

Sorry for reviving a dead thread.  My dad just got a 2nd hand Persona and he's wondering if it can take 92ron petrol?  The owner's manual stated RON 95 and up, does it strictly have to be so?  Any ill effects of pumping 92?

 

Previously we were using a Vios which happily drank the 92 petrol we pumped.  He prefers to continue with it.

 

Thanks.

follow manual stated minimum. Anything more is a waste of $$$, anything less will have long term ill effects.

Price difference 92RON and 95RON is only 4 cents per litre. How much can your dad save?  [confused]

 

A full tank of 50 litres save at most $2. For $2 savings per tankful (not taken into account the station and credit card discounts), is it worth the thousands $$$ that you risk spending for repairs as a result of the engine knocking?  :wacko:   [:/]   :huh:

I mistook the Persona for the Perodua Bezza. Both look almost alike.

 

Bezza is based on Axia platform. Comes in 1.0 and 1.3

 

Top of the range 1.3A costs only SGD17,000.

 

If it sells for $80K in Spore with COE, this "Toyota" with VVT-i engine will be a hot seller. Superior in power compared to the Note and Attrage, and equally spacious . Most importantly, it comes in a more responsive 5 speed manual or 4 speed auto, compared to the rubbery CVT found in the Note and Attrage.

The Axia is already selling at $80K now, Bezza probably will be higher. Will know exactly what price they are selling when the AD brings in the Bezza.

There are car buyers who are badge whores, who'd rather pay $160K for a BMW 318 with a 3 cylinder, 12V, 1500cc engine with 136 ponies under the bonnet, than... for example an Opel Insignia 1.6 turbo with 4 cyliner, 16V and 168 horses for a mere $130K. And both are Germans.

good for you then as can lowball potential sellers. [:p]

 

Will not be optimistic about the FC even for manual. Maybe can steal laugh if can achieve 10 km/l. :D

 

The Saga BLM, I think it's even worse. Hearsay 8 km/l for a 1.3M only. [dead]

My Proton Persona Elegance bring me serious trouble now. Recently, the engine oil light blink n then stay on like that. Then the engine started to sounds like diesel engine.

Cut story short, I had go to a workshop n they did the service of the bottom engine crank case/oil sump. After that refill new engine oil brand Pulzar 10-40w. They tested 1 day it was ok. Then the other day i went there n took my car. Drive out highway, refuel n not even 30mins...the car went back into the same problem at 1st.

Now, the mechanic said, the engine cant save anymore. It needed a general overhaul.

Anyone got this problem before for Proton persona elegance model 2013? Seriously need an advise here. Not sure really need to overhaul or not as of about last year i just had a top overhaul process due to timing belt broken. Head of the engine already been taken to engineering department to shim. All valves changed. Crank case just been cleaned up as well. Thou, they claimed that seeing some water sign in the oil sump. Oh ya, at the same time. My radiator seems like the water kept on reducing. No any leaking seen while the car stopped. ALready glued the hose attached to top radiator cover.
