Default Re: Mahindra Scorpio : Issues & Solutions

Dear all,

I have a 2006 scorpio DX with 1 Lac plus km. The car is having a peculiar problem.

While being driven at any speed (low or high) and any gear..the engine check light comes on. Along with the light coming on the car starts to loose power. Within seconds the engine check light disappears and the engine power resumes. I have had it checked multiple times at M&M ASS but to no avail. I have got a computer run a system check -but nothing came up. This problem is dangerous as well as the vehicle suddenly loses power in the middle of the road.

Please Help!

thanks

Sriraj

Problem is with motors (not the electric circuitry), and that's due to what's in the tank. My car's washer motors were both replaced last week for the first time in almost 7 years.

Water with particles in it tends to clog and jam the motors, as also certain types of washer fluids. I make sure I usually add only drinking water, or filter the water before pouring it in. And prolonged non-use of the washer motors causes scales to form and jam them as well. A few taps with a screwdriver handle on the motor get it working again.

It's just that accessing the washer bottle and motors is such a pain on the Scorpio.

Thanks a lot SS, will try this out once I reach back to India. You are right, its a pain finding some one to have the replacement done.

Hey Guys,

Need some help.
Facing strange issue with my scorpio 2006, car shudders while initial acceleration. No problem once it's past a certain RPM.
It also jerks if I depress the accelerator pedal suddenly.

Any clues, what could be wrong?
Thanks

Most likely worn out engine/GB mounts. Have them checked.

It means your fuel filter is blocked or there is water in your fuel pump. Please get it checked. It mostly happens when there is adulterated diesel fuel. Did you fill up from your regular station or was this one a random one?
