Congrats. That was certainly expected to cost you lesser. But what was the issue actually?

Good to see the issue resolved. BTW what was the problem? Was it something related to the setup or some faulty part?

ya this problem was killing as sound used to increase when i got bumpy roads .

somehow rod or axle were not in there actual position where they should have been which later causing thuk thuk sound and also one spring had bending problem which got repaired for Rs.30

Even I am thinking of switching to CNG cause of ever rising fuel prices. But the problem is there arent much CNG stations available in Pune.
like people say when you get diesel car you tend to travel more same applies here with CNG . We never used corolla that much but now after CNG i already completed 5000KM . Same distance which used to cost me around Rs.1200 petrol now only cost 200 [evil]

Thanks for the update..

Why engine rebuild so early ? But why should they replace the ECU.. Why not get a advice from a local mechanic.

When it comes to electric never never go with local mechanic that's what i have learned from my past mistake .

It was ECU problem .

New ECU + New lock = Rs.34000 damage to pocket

Now cars is running normal but sometime it get switch off in petrol at idle where as no problem in CNG

BTW car has completed 128500KM [glasses]

Its shocking to here that even BMW rides on CNG in delhi.I think its time to update the thread how is she doing on CNG.
After buying used city in 2011 enjoyed it alot but after reading this thread i think it needs replacement who knows may be TAI will get another corolla soon:)

well something happened while our car was washed by roadside guy . i don't know from that day
car is backfiring both on petrol and CNG when its cold . but as soon as it get warm it start working normal .

No one can figure out what is happening . My guess is that it could engine temp. sensor is dead due to which it is causing these issue .

couldn't take time out to take it to service centre .
