I am happy with my experience at NEXUS and Sachin for his prompt actions. I would recommend him too guys.
Glad that it worked out well for you with Sachin.

Might be a very very minor leak, also check the body of your compressor if there is any very evident leaks, usually denoted by oil spill. See how long it holds, it can be a very minor leak from one of the pipe joint seals.

It was Rs.800 earlier, now Maruti has hiked Diesel Filet cost to Rs.1100/-

Any idea if Diesel filter in Vista Quadrajet/Fiat Lines/Fiat Punto is the same Bosch one & what it costs ?

Thanks Jaggu!

Got the car delivered friday afternoon. Experience with the dealer was quite fine, except they didnt bother much to clean the vehicle.

Getting used to diesel engine for first time. So far driven 300kms.

Changed tyre to Michelin 185/70/R14, though sai ayengar at bannerghatta road pushing for 185/65. They were saying 185/70 has some complaints.(dont know this due to complaint or they didnt have stock that time). This costed 3650 per tyre and 1300 buy back. Also got Vkool70 & k14 from infrakool.

Now few newbie questions!

1. The clitter sound @ 1800rpm is the so called diesel engine clitter or turbo whinning. This is more audible on 1,2 and 3rd gears.
2. What is the function of alarm switch on dashboard just beside fog lamp switch? Manual says, it has 3 stages like arm\disarm\trigger, whats difference between this with nippon remote locking stuff? LED on this switch kept off all the time.
3. I am trying to keep the vehicle within 1.8-2.2 RPM range on 5th gear, but speed goes to 100 range sometimes. Is this ok at this stage?
4. Is this ok to keep the vehicle swicthed on and idle for some time say like 5-10 minutes(Once I filled fulltank diesel, I forget to swicth of engine!)

So far so good with DDIS. . Thanks for your input guys.

-Raj

1) Its normal and will come down as you run the car, around 5k kms and then even further by 10k kms

2) No idea, my car doesnt have one read the manual

3) No issues, once you complete 400 kms start raising rpm to 3k slowly and steadily

4) Again apart from wastage of fuel no issues whatsoever, Use IOC regular diesel for best results

Dear Jaggu sir ,

I bought a Dzire Vdi silky silver color last monday. I have a swift Vdi feb 07 model also which i used for one year before giving it in office for the use of manager and i upgraded to a Honda Civic. Now i have a few doubts that i want to clear.

Whenever i release the cluch of the dzire aroung 20% of the time i get a tak kind of noise. I have heard it is common in swift or dzire diesel. Kindly advice
Secondly I want to know how much kms the car should run in one tankful to have a good FE. Thirdly I want to install pete's tuning box in the car kindly advice me after how many kms of run in before i can install one.

thanks and regards
Mohit

the switch next to fog lamps is for the central locking,can be used when you would like to open your car with the key.
the alarm will trigger once you use the key,and that switch can be used to switch the alarm off.

you can also use for different settings mentioned in the booklet.for eg switching off the chirp,activating/deactivating "shock sensor"..

First thing please call me Jaggu

1) Is the sound soft thud or shart tac, if its former get it checked.

2) FE i get in city is 15-16 and on highways 22-24 depending on traffic. Fill her up, run her for 100 kms and then fill her up again and see what is the FE. Donot run the needle below 1/4 mark, to avoid moisture/muck getting into the fuel system.

3) Ideally wait for 5-10k kms so that you can rule out any other issues with the car and finish running in. Also keep in mind tuning box can void warranty, so have a game plan to disguise/disconnect them while giving for service.

Default A/C cabin air filter

Did my first service over the weekend (1180 odo).

Along with the oil change, they added an (MGA) A/C cabin air filter and billed me about 1300/- for it. Doesn't this filter come with the Swift when it is delivered? Is the price okay - seems rather high to me?

The service advisor also convinced me to go for a Bardahl kit for about 1200/- which contains three additives - one for the engine oil, one for the gear oil and one that you pour into the tank and supposedly helps diesel combustion! Since it was the first service I let myself get talked into this. From now on, all services will be strictly by the book

Surprisingly, though I had asked for the engine oil filter to be changed, it was not, as it is not part of the first service checklist for the diesel Swift. How big a deal is this? If I want to change it now, will I have to drain all the oil, replace the filter and then put the oil back in?

Thank you,
Amit.

What cheats man !! All this on a brand new car ? Ridiculous people. Please go strictly by the book at least till 20-25k. Think of flushes and additives only after that.

It sits between the external air intake and the fan and it helps in filtering the air that enters the fan, either from outside or internal air. If you check the post where i have done the DIY cleaning of ac fan its mentioned along with the picture of the location.

I checked your DIY post again, couldn't find any filter there.
You removed the AC blower fan and cleaned the unwanted stuff from it. Right ?

IMO there's no such filter in Swift DDIS.
