Default Re: Great Wall Haval (Hover) H3

Hi, I'm interested protections plastic wings and a windbreak for the front and rear windows. I know that there is a bumper protection at the back door compartment.
Also look for the new logo with Hover. To the front grille and rear (smaller).
Do not forget - my rear wiper was stolen back and put one of the other car.
Thanks!

I often smell gas from the muffler inside my cabin, but no one has been able to fix this nuisance, this is particularly notorious when descending with windows open

but the company is very proud at that engine,becuse as i know...many little chinese manifactures have diesel engines with common rail and euro 3 emission,of course it's a big step forward for them,but we must be raelistic,with that techologie what they have...i think that they can do better engine than that with more kw,and at least euro 4...in europe already start euro 5 law!

micodelija would be a rather funny name here in Costa Rica!!!

Hi. Telpanek.
I live in C.R too, I have a 2006 Hover (2.4 L gasoline) and no problems at all so far (41.000km).
In my case, some times I can smell the gas from the "catalytic converter" but it happens when I go slow and the wind blows the smell to the front of the car, especilly on windy days, or when I park the car in the garage, its funny because sometimes smell like "burn powder" and other like rotten eggs.

I think the strong smell from the catalytic converter decreases over time.

Pura vida...

Hi Rafael:
Thank you for the good feedback about your Hover performance.

There may be a few reasons for the smell condition, which is caused when H2SO3
or H2SO4 is being produced in the catalytic converter, and then emitted from the tailpipe:

Fuel available in your location has an especially high sulfur content (as it does in China).

The Hover is running too rich at the time you notice the odor.

This in turn has a variety of causes:
For example, the Oxygen sensor is not functioning properly, to control a good fuel/air mixture. The engine light should alert you to this.
Or, the intake air flow is restricted. There are other causes as well, that your mechanic can explain.

Be aware that a rich condition, over time, can cause the substrate of the catalytic convertor to disintegrate and block the exhaust flow.
