This time time TVS took good care of the vehicle may because the higher up officials from Mahindra was tracking the same.
Can somone throw some light on the above mentioned issue? I have got this warining once again yesterday

Too early for it, but maybe the fly wheel ring has got some broken cogs, I had the same problem but at 2.77 lakh kms. Changed it, it is fine.

Have you checked the starter motor? Needs to be opened & checked.

I suspect it is the starter motor commutator and carbons. Have them cleaned or replace them.

Let the engine bed down. In your first service did they change the engine oil & the oil filter? I don't think so. Insist on a oil change at the 10K kms second service. The mileage should improve.

Mine is a March'12 Lx 4WD and I've religiously changed oil at every service at the 5k intervals. In the city I'm getting a constant mileage of 12.3 and on my recent trip to Jodhpur I got 12.9 with the AC on.

I am getting a mileage between 10.14 to 11.94 (both city and highway).
First of all is this mileage normal for Lx 4WD ..?
I have noticed the idling speed is set to 1000 RPM and also noticed that the vehicle has enough power to crawl any considerable incline in 5th gear without throttle. It does a constant 40KMPH. There is some kind of intelligence built in which automatically maintains 1000 RPM and 40KMPH on any surface in 5th gear.
My question is can this idling speed be reduced to gain an increase in mileage.
Any other thoughts...

Default Timing Belt/Chain/Gears on Scorpio CRDe

Hi,
I have a 2005 SLX CRDe. During the last service I asked for timing belt change and they said it need not be done and timing belts for CRDe are usually changed only when the engine is opened. This was told by one of the senior mechanics at the ***. I'm unable to accept this.

Please suggest,
1. What does CRDe has, belt/gear/chain?
2. Change interval?
3. Approximate time required and cost.

I'm somehow of the opinion that they either do not have the parts required in stock or it is a tedious process and they are trying to avoid.

Check the user manual. The change interval for the timing belt will be given in it.

The CRDe Scorpio has chain driven camshaft.Since it's a chain,I don't think there's any kind of maintenance associated with it unlike other vehicles (like TATA Safari 2.2 which has belt driven camshaft and it needs constant attention )

Hi BMW-X5,
I had responded to this earlier. Did you get the oil separator checked ? It could be choked.
If the OS is fine then I suspect the engine oil sensor either needs cleaning or replacement. Most likely it should be fine with a bit of cleaning. Unclip the sensor connector and blow both sides with a HP air hose and snap it back in position. In the older CRDEs the oil sensor lies next to the oil filter. If yours is an M-Hawk you need to locate where the sensor is - most likely next to the oil filter.

Hi Guderian,

My apologies, I overlooked your response. Thanks a lot, I will get it checked and update.

My Scorpio is currently with SS for rust job. To get some minor dent/scratch work done along with this, I asked for quote to repaint bonnet, footboard ends and left rear door cladding and received as below -
Bonnet - 3200
Footboard ends (2) - 1600
Left passenger door cladding - 1600
Total approx 8500 incl. Taxes

Please let me know if above charges are reasonable.

Hi amk,
Firstly what is SS ? Service Station ?
If it is M&M's ASC you have gone to then I guess you would have approached Global Gallerie. They will fleece you for such jobs. It would have been better had you gone to a FNG (Friendly Neighbourhood Garage) - there are plenty of good ones near Tikuji-ni-Wadi - who are of the large multi brand variety. Almost near the end of the Tikuji-n-W Road there is a left turn and there are two of them. You can get much cheaper quotes from them.
Going by your description I think the whole thing can be done at around Rs. 5K.
The footboard ends are plastic - would be much cheaper to replace them. Check that out from the ASC. Or at best touch up work. Even a full spray coat shouldn't cost you more than Rs. 250. The cladding work should just be a good touch up which would would be around Rs. 300. If it is badly damaged and needs a total spray work - then about 1K.
The total bonnet work should not cost you more that 2.5 K.
My suggestion is check out a couple of FNGs before proceeding.
Take cash and the FNGs wouldn't bother too much about taxes either.
ASCs kill you on the various taxes too. Whether they, the ASCs, pay up the taxes collected from the customers honestly to the Gov't is another serious doubt I have...!
Good luck !

Thanks for your response. Yes it is Service Centre, Global Gallery. I was trying to avoid writing (you know what) and characters getting replaced with **. :-)

Actually they are painting all 5 doors for rust within warranty and I thought to take care of some scratches on other body parts.

If I get this additional paint job done by FNG then will it create any warranty claim issue in future? My Scorpio has done 45K kms and 3 years old. I still have another year with extended warranty.

Fortunately, I found all Mahindra Customer Service Managers very friendly and never made any fuss about warranty claims. So dont want to make it difficult for them for rest of the year.

Thanks for your help.

There are no issues with warranty on painting and denting jobs if some of it is done from outside.
First get all your warranty jobs done and then go to the FNG.
