this one my friend i am talking from experience.

Sir if there is trace of oil or coolant then i beg to differ but there is nothing wrong with the engine.The head gasket has worn out.Don't think there is anything wrong in the engine.

Correct, its more like a lathery layer formation there wont be oil traces, you would find solid flakes in the radiator and the coolent bottle.

Yes Indrojit sir, You are right in pointing that out. it could be a blown gasket that can cause oil and coolant mixing.

But just for argument sake there is also a possibility of crack in cylinder head that can also cause the same issue.

I have come across brown leathery layer in coolant reservoir tank in my 95 M 800 but wasnt aware that it was because of oil mixing.

Hey Ajay.

Pretty sad to learn that the SS80 has been denied classic
status and now is part of the "Indian Scene"

These mods sure need to make up ther mind on where this thread belongs.

a fellow TBHpian who is a MARUTI SUZUKI executive since 2005(not dealer employee)and is a TBhpian did research on this and has told that since 1986 beginning there used to be a 800 version nomeclatured as Semi Deluxe and it was known like that till 1990 march when the DX version was stopped,from then only the a/c cars was called A/CTG.
Believe it or not,there are 2 semi deluxe carsSS80 in Trivandrum- first one a blue shade car single owned by a MAJOR and the second one a green(the same SB308 green shade) both doesnt have clock,stereo,antenna,leather seats etc.
I have personally talked to the MAJOR and he confirmed that the car came with company A/C and has the TEMPALEX tinted glasses.
For the doubting guys,I have requested the Maruti TBhpian to collect documentary proof if possible so that this issue can be settled once and for all
