I think Mobil 1 is suitable for Diesel Engines which requires CF Standard but not for engines requires higher than CF standard.(CG4 and higher)

yes one can use Mobile 1 for diesel engines with CF rating but it is a synthetic oil for petrol engines hence not ideal. Movile delvac 1 is the right engine oil for Diesel engines.

Recently got my Swift D oil changed to Magnatech at Pit Stop. During the change the mech noticed that the front right shocks oil is leaking. He suggested to get it changed.

My Swift is under extended warranty, will the part be covered in warranty? Else, any idea on the total cost of replacing shocks?

If the mileage is below 60k kms, it will be covered under extended warranty.

All maruti cars including Swift come with two options of extended warranty. a 1 year extended and 2 year extended warranty. a 1 year extended warranty has cover for 3 years from date of purchase or 60K Kms whichever happens earlier and a 2 year extended warranty has cover for 4 years from Date Of Purchase or 80 K kms whichever is earlier.

Nopes, in either case suspension and related parts are covered only for 60k kms.

Ok. I didnt know the 60k mileage part, Thanks for the information. I have 1+2 year warranty. The strut was changed within no time. The SA said that the part can still run for a while but since it was in stock and the traffic was low in the service station, we got it changed. Part cost Rs. 2024, got a Zero bill. Labour was not added in the bill.

However, the new strut had the part number sticker which had petrol on it. I tried to check the diameter of the old and the new, was not able to check ti clearly. When the raised the point to the SA, he confirmed with someone that the strut is the same for petrol and diesel vehicles.

Logically, since the engine weight is more in the diesel car, shouldnt a part like strut be of higher caliber?

Front Strut is the same for petrol & diesel Swifts, But the front coil spring is different.
The rear shock absorbers & coil springs are the same for petrol & diesel

Its available in BLR, i picked up a 5 lit can for the last service about 2 months back i guess. Prices have increased a lil bit, but true for all oils.

It can be a slight whistle kind of sound which is normal, metal scratching sound definitely get a second opinion. See if one of the pulley is making this noise.

Ya jaggu even i have that doubt that it would be the pulley's bearings.
