IIRC it started off at high revs few months back, now i think it has become a bit regular. I think rings and pistons needs to be checked then the head gasket. Get a garage which deals with Govt Of Karnataka, they will have very good experts with this engine.

Siddu,

I have given the gypsy to Dale Hunter , referred by Rajachu. He has done the compression check and electronic distributer coil. He is saying there is no problem with the compression. Smoke is drastically reduced. Misfiring has stopped.

I have to see the machine on monday to cofirm.

Hopefully no issues with the engine.

You are very crooked.

I have already given the gypsy for diagnosis. Compression tested and found okay. Electronic distribution coil is changed and has stopped the smoking.

Will wait for a couple of days to know status.

Dwarak coil and smoke somehow doesnt ring bells, do check further if you are planning to sort this 100%. Hope there was no oil consumption otherwise?

ps: I have moved the post to IsuzeGypsy thread

Thanks Jaggu,

I got call from Dale Hunter who is attending to my isuzu engine that, vehicle started smooth after he fixed the starter solonoid and electronic distributer coil. No misfiring and no visible smoke.

I am visiting him on monday to check the claims and trial run it for few kms.

Folks,

Am back here with some good news.

1 > Smoking has completely stopped : Reason for smoking was engine head gas vent, which was supposed to be connected to air filter was wrongly connected to suction manifold of the mpfi. Suction was so powerful, it was drawing the oil spray in the engine head and mixed with fuel , injected into the cylinders. Hence, the smoke. It took an Ambassador mechanic to point out in two minutes. Thanks to Swastik Viji and Vijay Reddy for asking me to bring the Ipzy to Race Dynamics. Last OTR at Chikkaballapur was a real fun with Ipzy.

2 > I had a western ghat travel in my Ipzy saturday to monday i.e. 21st to 23rd Nov. Though the roads are horrible for cars , for Ipzy it was a cake walk. Was doing steady 40 - 60 kmph in ghat section, where as others were doing at max 20kmph. I thoroughly enjoyed the drive, no issues with Ipzy whatsoever. Although, I experienced drag when i pressed throttle to build torque, which I feel is because of MPFI issue over carburator.

3 > On Nice road, Mysore road and between Yelwala to Kushalnagar I could touch speed of 125 kmph with no hitch. Constantly kept speed of 80 -90 kmph. Because of the weight of isuzu engine and gearbox plus body weight, ipzy stood rock solid on road at 125kmph speed.

Conclusion: Am happy with implant and thank MM 440 a.k.a. jammy Anand for his suggestions and help.

Jaggu,

Distributer coil was first culprit for misfiring. Ipzy is mpfi version.
