Welcome to the forum! Do go through the rules of the forum, it does not permit slang style. Full form is only accepted.

Back to your query, I think the Swift isn't carb, it has to be MPFI.

You can find System-G at BP bunks which acts as a injector cleaner too.
It's to be put in a ratio of 1 ml/1 litre in the fuel tank.

firstly that barely qualifies as slang ; and since your not a mod give the guy a break !

secondly try giving him some better info

Sid you can get your injectors cleaned on an injector cleaning machine from a garage with a good reputation : should cost 500 rs ish

but if you want to clean your whole fuel system out which is reccomemned every 10 000 km , this is what i would do [ i drive a swift too ]

1 st dump a bottle of sonax fuel system cleaner into a full tank of fuel and nearly finish that tank :

then
engine decarbonization [machine done again ] rs 1500 ish

after that change your fuel filter & spark plugs [ which plugs you use? ]

then flush your oil system i seriously like the OWs engine flush & change your oil [have to after a decarb] ; hope your on mobil 1 5w50 api sm

THEN have your injectors machined cleaned and spray pattern checked as a last step

clean/replace your air filter too : are you on stock?
.

cheers man

Hi There,

I'm from Pune and I drive a Swift Petrol. I'm planning to follow the steps that you have mentioned above.

I'm planning to switch to Mobil1. When I contacted exxonmobile, they recommended 0W40 for Swift Petrol. It costs about 4K in Pune. Now you are using 5W50.

1). How much would it cost you for 5W50?
2). Who recommended 5W50?

Thanks.

Swift has a carburettor!? thats new.

Dude. do not put any additives and get it cleaned by an expert with proper machine. preferably at MASS.

It will look something like below.

Wow thats a flashback, now I use ows 360 as an additive .

The "machine" I mention was what your talking about available at most MASS s - engine decarb'ing machines.Dont know of "experts" present at many of them though.

Swifty: 5w50 costs the same is ie 3300 rs ; It's for more "hard" driving and is fully synthetic.
The 0w40 maybe more lighter giving slightly better hp figures for the swift engine at least the ows somethingW40 definitely feels lighter but with a slight compromise on engine protection.

Hi There, Thanks for the details. I will prefer 5w50 over 0w40 if its good for engine life.

I too have a Swift Petrol.

I guess, OWS 360 is a fuel system cleaner?
How should I use OWS 360?
What's the price of OWS 360?
