Looked at the link. Seems like only the battery and air filter assembly is removed to access the EGR. In that case, why was the viper assembly additionally removed in my car for cleaning EGR (and I was also charged too for that )

I did look at this link some time back - but how exactly the EGR assembly is removed and put back is not explained/illustrated in this link.

Drive on,

I put that link up to illustrate that the approach was from above engine and battery and air filter was removed.

In the MASS that I frequent, they insist that the access to the EGR is from beneath the car, making it necessary to move the steering box out of the way..
Not required at all.

Having trouble with the Turbo of my swift VDI. The SA refuses to acknowledge that there is a turbo oil seal. Can someone put up a picture of the approx location where this turbo oil seal is so that I can show the same to my SA and ask him to check.

I am pretty sure that Oil seal is bust as turbo is still working (though not giving the kick at 2000 RPM), Intercooler and related rubber pipes have been just replaced. Add to that the SA has filled up 3.3 L of Oil

Kindly have the folks at MASS check the turbo surge. That should indicate whether your turbo is faulty or not.
Also ask them to drain the oil out and refill the same again. Wait for 15-20 minutes for all the oil to drain out completely. Kindly refill only 2.9 litres as you will not be removing the oil filter during the drain process.

If not drained, some part of this additional oil would find its way into the intercooler.

Cheers

Turbo oil seal cannot be accessed without dismantling the turbo. Easier thing is to take the boost readings and see if they are within company recommended readings.

Hi All,
I'm leaving my swift vdi for 40k service tomorrow at suraksha. using mobil devlac engine oil, ioc diesel with system D for last 25kms, i'm getting 16kmpl in city. there's been no problem except that i hear kat kat sound inside the cabin from the left rear end unable to diagnose the problem any inputs will be of tremendous help.
planning to get below mentioned things done-
engine oil and filter replace
coolant replace
air filter replace
fuel filter replace
clutch fluid replace
transmission oil replace
brake fluid replace.
any other things should i look into?
manual recommends master cylinder/caliper/boot cut replace, should i get it done?

30km service done. Here are the list of things

MGDO (15W40) Castrol - 3L
Joint Comp, Front Stabilizer
Brakes Overhaul
Fuel Injector cleaning
Front brake caliper assembly both sides OH
Engine System flushing
Body Polishing
Front Suspension Arm both sides R&R
Stabilizer Ball Joint (All) R&R

The shock stabilizer was replaced under warranty and Wax polishing was done for free.

Total bill - 4448/-

Completely satisfied with the work. I decided to discontinue my service with my usual service station. Tried another place and am completely satisfied. I could notice many differences when compared to my old SS. Anyways, car is a lot better, absorbing the potholes really well.

Facing a problem recently:
I usually drive alone, on weekends there are 3 people (2 front, one rear seat).

I upgraded my tires to 185/70/R14 from stock tires. Recently when driving the car with with 5 peoples (3 on rear seat, 2 on front) my tires are getting scarped to the underbody on bumps and also at higher speed at uneven road.

No problem when I drive alone, or with 3 people (2 front, one rear seat).

What needs to be checked?

Are you sure that the tyre is scraping the underbody? I have a doubt since you havent upgraded the radius. If that's the case, check the shocks. These are pretty bad and they easily get damaged. I recently changed the bush as they got pretty badly damaged after my recent drive to Blore.

Should not be tyres. My car is also running on the same profile tyres and I frequently do long drives with 5 people onboard. Never had this issue even on some of the worst roads in Kerala. Please check the shocks.

Which is the new service station? Do you have the break-up of charges?
