Thumbs down no replies

you say you had the problems examined by a dealership and a mechanic and they couldn't sort it out...
how would you expect people who haven't even looked at your vehicle to sort out them out for you?

give it some time. people will answer your queries.

Dear SubbaRao,

A lot of people don't have much tech about diesel cars,old models,etc.
Even i didn't have any replies when i posted about my Sumo's woes.
Just be patient.Don't expect replies in a single day. Moreover ur problem hasn't been clear to me.

I had a Zen, and clearly remember that the air-con compressor noise was loud with a typical whine. I have seen it in countless other zens.

Try switching the air-con off, and checking for the booming noise.
