The compressor could be out of gas or low on gas. If you open the hood and start the engine with the ac on, can you hear the compressor cutting in and out?


Engine hesitation is generally due to a weak battery. Also, since you are now at 100,000km, I would suggest you do a Xado engine treatment (look my Hariya thread for details). It helps significantly.


Geolandars are a nice and trusted choice for tires and will last you another 65-70k kms easily with good usage.

I am a bit wary of Geolanders because of sidewall issue. Why not check the Michelin Cross for a change? Sadly, they aren't available for my Scorpio's size.

Some leakage. Corrected and the gas topped up. AC is a chiller now after the 1 Lakh km service, even during Kerala noon.

Got a new battery. Also the starter motor got serviced.

I have used Yokos for the last 60k km or so, did not face any side wall issue, even after abusing it around.
But got 4 new Michelin LTX A/T for a change, priced at Rs. 400 more than the Yoko per piece.

Update: 1 lakh km service
The Vehicle was ready by the time I got there. In about 10 minutes I drove out of the dealership after having done the payment and thanked the SM for his attention to details. The vehicle was sounding, behaving and shining as brand new.

The important bit: The clutch slave cylinder which was replaced some 2000 km back was found leaking again = replaced FOC.

The details of the work carried out:

Drove into a tyre shop and got the Yokos replaced with 4 Michelin LTX A/T this time around. The significant advantage over Yokohama Geos I thought was that the cabin now is absolutely silent. These tyres are amazingly quieter. Now I get to enjoy that addictive roar from under the hood to the fullest.

Congrats M35 for the 1 Lac milestone.

Your scorpio is holding well and you are maintaining it immaculately. I am sure you will have many more miles of happy motoring with the beast.

My scorpio is also at 92000 kms. Observed very minor seepage from the slave clutch cylendar. Have decided to wait and watch for a while before i think of a replacement.

Cheers.

Personally I wouldn't play a wait game here. It's no fun when the clutch pedal stays depressed in the middle of a long journey. Have had two instances already and for me is the 'only' weak point in this vehicle.

Dear, could you please post better pictures of the tires? Was cross available with the tire dealer?

Give me a day for the pictures.
I didn't ask for the cross since I was interested in A/T only.

Update:

Earlier, my driver had noticed ABS warning sign on a couple of occasions. During the service they scanned for error codes but didn't notice any. But when I was driving home after the service, the ABS warning sign came up again with some pulsating movements at the brake pedal on multiple occasions.

Today as I was driving to Munnar, spent an hour or so at the ASC and got it inspected. Replaced a faulty ABS sensor under warranty = goodwill warranty.

See if this helps. Surprised to see the white lettering though

Did a short trip to 'Anayirangal' near Munnar today. 'Scorp' sailed through the narrow but smooth tarmac on the stretch between Munnar and Poopara.

Covered some 1500 ood km after the major service. Typing this from Hyderabad.
The ĎScorpí seem back to its very best. The Michelins are definitely silent and when driven at 110-119 kmph, I simply donít hear anything including that from under the hood except for that additive soft whistle, beyond 120 kmph the engine starts to become audible but I hardly push beyond that.

A recent DIY job before my Hyderabad trip:http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/diy-do...r-console.html (DIY: Rexine cover for the center console)

ODO: 108xxx km
Issues since the recent service: NONE

The vehicle drives absolutely immaculately. Back in town from Hyderabad. Steering is effortless and the ride and handling seem to be at its very best, thanks to the new Michelins and the 1 lakh service. The FE has definitely improved further, didnít calculate it though.

Spending more time with a new member in the family - my little baby angel- these days, hence no long drives or birding trips planned.

Drove along the beautiful container terminal road @Kochi. Never knew such a wonderful setting about 100km away from home. 'Scorp' continues to amaze me with it's pristine state and refinement.

Update on the total service cost as of today. Got the figures from http://www.withyouhamesha.com/, since I don't keep any record myself.

Update:
Scorp gets a couple of accessories !
1. Hella twin tone horns- One of the OE horns had gone bad, hence got them replaced. Now these complement my other set- Roots Megasonic horns beautifully.
2. Hella 700FF lights. Looks great and they can light up the roads quite superbly.
Pictures will be up shortly.

Scorp wearing a couple of Hella. Didn't like the white covers = blackened thwm, hence the menacing look.
