90,000 Kms? No work on the engine yet?

no buddy,some indicas engine last for 100000-150000 kms also without a need for overhaul.my engine is consuming 1 litre of oil in 5000 kms do i need to overhaul it or maybe i can squeeze some more kms.

The oil consumption is a good indicator that all is not well with your engine.

One of our 407s ran around 180,000Kms before engine overhaul- But it had reduced load carrying capability and used to cry on being overloaded.

Time to overhaul? Suggest you better check with your mechanic, based on his comments you can make the call. Technically, yes, you can extract many more Kms
