Oh ok. No idea about the results. Just met these guys when I went to fill the tank yesterday. They were promoting like anything, forcing me to have my car checked for free. Planning to give there for the 30k service. Will update on that.

They moved from SGP to MGP sometime back for brakepads and hence half the price.
Sorry, can you point me to the link on the thread for dent removal?

Ah!! at the service station :-) my friend owns a MAS station, so that's where I checked the error code on the scanner.

I was at a spanking new Sai service station in hinjewadi Pune and saw an interesting addition to the equipment. There was a set of 8 pipes hanging feom the ceiling with a control pod on a side wall... It seems that the mechanic keys in the vehicle model in the pod and uses the pipe which automatically determines the correct type and quantity of oil that should be filled in ( for the Swift diesel, it chose 3.1 l of 15W40 from Shell) and activates the pipe accordingly. Is anyone else aware of such a device in other service stations? On another note, normal 50k service quoted at Rs. 5500 (the only extra is replacement of the disc brake pads for 1500). Is it just me or is the servicing of the Swift DDiS getting more expensive by the day? :-(

My EGR cleaning was Rs. 2700 labour (plus 300 in service tax) and Rs. 27 for 3 EGR gaskets. Is Pune labour all that expensive or is Sai Service taking people for a ride. I'll take it up with Maruti if anyone can help in getting a copy of a bill from another service station which states Rs. 1000 for EGR cleaning labour charges.

Let me see if I can locate my bill. I think I paid 1000 bucks plus 100 for the EGR gaskets

5500/- looks expensive to me for a normal 50K service. I would expect a 3500/- bill for that. I believe Swift ownership is definitely getting quite expensive. Looks like they are milking the best product to make maximum revenue.

I am happy with my service station who charges me 800/- for EGR valve cleaning as labour charges!!

I have checked on the EGR cleaning at Indus Kakkanad and the SA quoted me 2300 + taxes. Having gone thru some of the earlier posts on this, even am confused now. But am skeptical in trying a new place as am very much happy about Indus Kakkanad.

Dear All,

I too own a Swift VDI ABS which has done about 59000 kms and is out of warranty. I sourced engine oil, gear oil from the market and all the filters and coolant and brake pads from MGP shop as I do not intend to visit the MASS in future for routine jobs.

Yesterday while getting all the oils and filters changed from my trusted mechanic (he works in a MASS) I put in Castrol Magnatac (10W40) whereas later on I found out from the manual that it should be 15W40. At the time of purchase I had enquired from the vendor and he insisted that it is a very good oil and is fit for diesel engine. Now I am in a dilemma as to if the correct oil has been put. May I request you all guys to let me know if correct oil has been put. I paid Rs. 1050/- for 3 ltr can. Incidentally the website of Castrol says that it can be used in all types of high performance luxury cars (diesel and petrol). The total cost of 60,000/- km service came to Rs. 6900/- (including washing, two tyres balancing and wheel alignment), the brake oil was not replaced. Pls guide should I change the oil to 15W40 or continue to run.

Is it synthetic oil? Usually for mineral oil, the charge should be around 700/- for a 3.1L fill. And you mentioned a 3 ltr can - what about another 100 ml ? We are not supposed to leave it at 3 ltr right?

I had read some time back about some yellow top & red top battery types. Guess those are from Amaron and I had read the owners were a happy lot. Swift D requires a 64DIN type?

This 10w40 is OK as it retains its fluid properties at lower temp (10) as compared to (15) . Engine oil grade depends on the environmental temperatures that the vehicle is exposed to. So for Delhi with winter round the corner 10w40 is fine.
