I have done oil change along with all filters. I went with Shell Helix Ultra 5W 40 fully synthetic oil. I had got this for a good price on Amazon. Car feels smoother and engine is revving better now. Black smoke has also decreased. Remember, my car is running on a very aggressive map from TOT .

And the V box graph is here :

The car has run more than 1.2 lakh KM. Recently, there is an issue. I am not able to slot into 1 st gear from higher gears while moving. But there is no issue to slot into 1 st gear when the car is not in motion. Maruti service guys advised me to change lower gear synchronisers and clutch. I am still thinking over it, as I do not find the issue very irritating. I hardly get to use 1 st gear on highways.

Not Happy Times For SX4

1. Gearbox issues :
I am not able to slot into 1 st and 2 nd gears now. Maruti has suggested to open the gearbox and change synchronisers.

2. Rear Bumper gets a dent :
A boy on scooter managed to make a dent on rear bumper and just fled away.

Update : 5000 KM Post Tune O Tronics Remap :

As I mentioned before the performance is very good and I guess this is the fastest car with 1.3 MJD documented online in India (10.85 seconds on V Box). But, there is lot of black smoke under wide open throttle. Also, I had to change lower gear synchronisers within 5000 KM post remap. I am not saying remap is the culprit, but there is a chance. Since, I had issues with TOT regarding my S-Cross remap, I do not expect lifetime support anymore and I have decided to go back to Wolf. I have asked Rajiv to work on switchable maps and flash the same. My car was running on Wolf map before TOT and there was some issue (turbo over boost).. But Rajiv was out of country to rectify it. As per Rajiv, we were running higher boost than stock. I think the turbo was not able to handle the additional boost after driving thousands of kms. I have logged the turbo boost values in both wolf and TOT remaps.. TOT remap has lesser boost and no over boost error. I will post more details after Rajiv works on my car

Baleno 1.2 and SX4 are ready to get Wolfed in my garage

I think the black smoke is common with all diesel cars right ? Under heavy acceleration, there will be lot of un burnt diesel.

Short bursts of black smoke is common with diesel cars under heavy acceleration. But, continuous black smoke should not be there. The car is running very rich.

The source of leak : oil sump packing

After dent removal and painting : good job

Ciaz gear knob (just 330 Rs)

1. Lower gear synchroniser issue is very common with all Maruti cars with 90 hp Multijet as per service manager. It has nothing to do with Tune O Tronics remap

2. The gear shifts are very smooth now and the issue is rectified

There is no point selling this car now as the resale value is very bad. I will try to keep him (Yes it's him, Men amongst cars haha) as long as possible.

Cheers!
