harmless means cable connectors connected in sensors.You will soon have check engine indicator in your car mostly.Change plugs plz as 69K is a long inuf run to perform this job.Do all jobs what I have mentioned,if all fails wait for c.e.indicator and then like me(I hope so)change cam position sensor.

ECM, its "Harness" and not harmless!!!

Im not surprised Karthik got it right!!!

"rdkarthik" is the only guy in India who builds his own performance ECU's for Indian cars...His business functions under the name "Race Dynamics"(www.racedynamics.in)

So if the problem is anywhere close to ECU's and stuff, he is our man!!!

Infact Karthik happens to be my tuner hence I could open my mouth without hesitation...He knows ECU's damn bloody well.

4 out of 5 cars that ran his custom performance ECU's had podium finishes(including mine) in the last months Speed Run...a drag racing event that happened in bangalore.

Pls contact him if you have any doubts regarding ECU issues, he would be more than glad to assist Im sure...


p.s: Sorry if Ive gone off topic.

Now that @ECM's problem with his Baleno is solved, I guess it won't hurt to get back to that 20kmpl FE claim.
During my highway drives (around 1700kms), I have got FE ranging between 16 and 16.5 kmpl (measured by the tankfull-to-tankfull method). I drive at the max speed that the road and traffic permits - have gone upto 140kmph max. My average speed was in the whereabouts of 80kmph. And I always keep the AC on.
Instead, if I were to drive at a steady pace of 70kmph (a la ECM), I am sure that I could get an FE of atleast 18kmpl. And on top of it, if I do not use AC and keep windows closed (a surefire recipe to get grilled in Tamilnadu), and ensure minimal load in car, a 20kmpl FE does not look impossible. So, even though @ECM's claim of 20kmpl FE on highways might look like a big deal, it is actually quite possible with some effort and sacrifice.
But, then will I give up the comfort of AC and the fun of high speed (not rash) driving to get a 3-4kmpl increase in FE ? No, Thanks.

Good to know the problem is sorted out. And we all know one more possibility a car can go wrong and to check in case of a problem. That is the purpose and spirit of this team.

Regarding the FE, it is not impossible. we all know in spite we redicule each other for fun . I get 12.6km/l on my petra on highways, have tried and got 16 once, it can be repeated, but with out fun.

To discuss more about it , I think there is a thread about it already, can we move there, Just not to confuse subject of the thread and the content. Mods please...

Since the problem has been fixed, this thread will be closed. The discussion on FE can happen elsewhere.
