Jaggu you may have a point there . Lately I have decided to take it cool and not using sudden bursts of speeds/rapid acceleration anymore. No such sound being heard . It can be a minor issue. However will double check and confirm on this !

People,

Does the Swift require anything to be done with the valves/gaskets etc during normal service ?

Could somebody enlighten me on the Diesel filter change interval for Swift DDiS? People form MASS told me 20K and another friend of mine suggested me to change at 10K. Am confused. How important is this change?

It's 20K as recommended by Maruti, and I'm following the same. Has worked fine since now, my car is now due for 40K service and 2nd filter change. In fact Maruti is on safer side with 20K interval, I guess the change interval is more for Fiat cars.

20k replacement for diesel filter, if you fill up from not so great pump, then maybe do a water drain at 10k kms.

If you have been driving on potholed/Uneven roads It is suggested you do tyre rotation, balancing and alignment once every 5000 kms. Balancing can be once in 10K kms but Alignment and rotation has to be carried out at 5K kms.

Diesel has small quantities of water that is trapped by the diesel filter at the bottom of it. There is a value at the bottom of Diesel filter which when opened drains of the water. This needs to be done periodically. ECU in Swift D also warns user of excess water in filter.

Default Clutch release point

Sorry for hijacking jaggu's thread.
The clutch release position in my dzire Vdi is really long i.e. you can see the vehicle move when more than 3/4th of the clutch is released. Had raised the same with the service station at the 10,000 Kms service but they said it is normal. The car is now at 13,000 kms.
Drove a couple of friend's swift diesels and noticed that it is pretty earlier than that.
AFAIK the clutch release at the end stage means that the clutch is at its end stage.
Any pointers on what might the issue. I can assure you that I dont ride the clutch as I have been driving for 13 yrs now and none of my previous cars had any clutch issue before 65,000 kms

Snowhites clutch also engages at the end, from day one, so dont know if its really an issue or not. Car is reaching 38k kms and clutch seems to be ok till now.
