My premier Padmini has done 60000 kms. Already changed clutch plate once at around 30000 kms. I observe that after releasing the clutch, when I press the accelerator, the engine rpm rises with non-corresponding increase in the speed of the car.
Have the clutch plates gone or something else? OR any adjustments can be made? Pl advise.

Thats the clutch slipping. There are several factors which could cause this, the most basic being clutch pedal adjustment, the quality of the clutch liner, so on and so forth. How is the pedal feel like ? Is there some freeplay before the clutch engages ? It might be the clutch. Do ensure to change the clutch plate, pressure plate, fork and thrust bearing at the same time. Please do not remove the flywheel off the engine. It is balanced and torqued by the company, most mechanics would want to resurface it, ruining the 'feel' of the car.

The clutch works in the last few cms and there is no problem while reversing. I also felt it could be due to clutch plate. I would note to change all the parts in one go after first trying to adjust the clutch play / pedal. If it does not work, then would go for clutch overhaul. Would take you advice then and there. Thank you.

hello veryone and Behram sir:

In the 118 Ne, which year and month onwards manufactured cars have the real treatment for anti rust? Is it the Viceroy only or all NE's made under PAL-Peugeot?

Dear Karthik - 1996 Viceroy cars only but it is nowhere near what is actually required because paint shop did not have CED (Cathode Electro Deposition). CED paint shop is the single biggest investment required in an automobile manufacturing unit.

Best regards,

Behram Dhabhar

I just love my "India" experience, No place in the World can compare.

I recently had the engine of WBF-1, my 1962 Fiat 1100 completely rebuilt and took it in for my 6 month emission test which failed. Had a new / old stock carb installed, still failed, had a local tuner reset the cab and retested,--- Failed again!
One of the lads at the testing depot then took a small screw driver and fiddled with the settings, while checking with the man at the machine until it PASSED! I paid the R150 fee, slipped the lad a 50 and drove home very relieved.

MY QUESTION is, not knowing the nuances of tuning a carb, I'm not sure whether the current setting is too lean and might; a. do harm to the engine, b. give me better gas milage or not. Should I have the tuner reset the carb? The car's running well either way.

On the bright side, in Toronto while we only have to have our emissions checked every two years at a cost of about R1,500 Pass or Fail, here if you don't pass, you don't pay!

I seem to be having a problem with oil flow in my president (the engine was rebuilt several years ago and the pump was not changed).

The oil pressure warning lamp on the dash lights up when I brake or take a sharp turn. It usually goes off in a couple of seconds but yesterday it didn't and the engine note changed completely. The oil level was hardly a couple of mm below max on the dipstick. Things were fine after I shut off the engine and started it again.

Is it the oil pump or something else ?

Post Boron Treatment

Hello All!

I happen to find this thread on Team-BHP : http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/techni...ngine-oil.html (My Experience With adding Boric Acid in Engine oil)

Has anyone tried this experiment on Fiats / PPs / 118NEs?

Regards and Keep Revving,

Rahul Waghmare.

Get in line my friend. Most of us are looking for the above. Especially the indicators.

I had to overhaul my S1's radiator. I choose to replace the entire core. After fitting, I noticed that the fan doesnt actuate after the engine warms up and the temp needle is going all the way to 90% after driving around 6kms in average traffic today. Car is at office. Is there something I can check? The wires seem to be connected though.

Just check the radiator fan wire. There is a loose connection there.

Water is leaking as the pipe from radiator to head is not fixed properly.

Hope this helps.
