Injectors cleaned? Spark plugs have any oil residue on them - due to leaking cylinders? Clean air filter? Get the wheel alignment specifically done at computerized outets like Madhu's on Dickenson Rd.

Enjoy maadi

Hmm...carr pulling till 120 and then not accelerating further.I had this same problem.When i changed my tires,i got a computerised report that my old wheels were off alignment by 38 degrees/percent.New tires balanced and aligned and there we went:
60
110
150
180
210

For acceleration lag u can replace your exisiting filter with the stock ones n check if there's any difference

My mistake. It should be a balancing issue as rightly pointed out by Ishan

Thanks once again for the over-whelming response folks. Quite a few pointers here and lets see what MUL can do to fix the problem.

I am sure they will fix it just right. Plan another trip, this time on the west coast & let's see how much dust hovers there.

shuvc,
You can remove the plastic tubing till the throttle body and clean it with soap water and dry till dry before putting it back.. there will be carbon deposit and dust on sides. i had dust collected in the rings of lpg mixer. the holes in it were also covered slightly. you have to disconnect to connectors and two clamps. it is a DIY item.

Left the car at the service station on monday. RNS has agreed on having the throttle body cleaned, wheel balancing checked and also checking the spark plugs(replace if needed).

Zak like you have mentioned MUL doesnt replace spark plugs when needed(not atleast free of cost). Was talking to the service engineer yesterday and he quoted the same.

Called Ozz One for having the K&N filter cleaned and was given a price quote of 350 bucks. Does that sound reasonable ??

Default Problem fixed..

Hiya folks , got the car today and woooaaahhh she is back to her old charm.

1st of all thanks to Rahul and v1p3r for calling me from RNS and letting me know the rotation of the tyres were wrong. I sure would have over looked this one. Thanks men !!

Was given a wake up call from RNS at 8:30 AM, half asleep went over to RNS and checked the car.
To my surprise the wheels still werent put in the right order.Called the service advisor and very promptly he got it done ASAP witout making me wait.

Work carried out : Throttle body cleaned and spark plugs cleaned(as per the service advisor).

The car was delivered at 10 AM as promised.Looks like the whole of RNS was busy with the SX -4 hype.Well I salute the guys there coz inspite of the all the rush they delivered the car as promised.
Took it for a test drive and yepp she felt real nice.

On my way to work headed to Ozz One and got the K&N filter cleaned , dint make much of a difference though.
Did a drive on the Peripheral road(NICE)floored the pedal twice and yummm !! Good response hmmmm..Am happy.

Thanks to all once again. T-BHP rocks cheers:.

Am heading for a spark plug change. Any pointers ?

OT : Am thinking of claiming insurance for getting both bumpers painted and also the rear door.What do you guys suggest? Quite a few visible scratches. Thanks to moron bikers in bangy who have no road sense .

Congratulations Riju, this calls for a celebration tonite at Tavern. I've booked the table for 20 in your name now.

Spark Plugs: stick to regular ones. Use MICO-Bosch. Ensure the firing end is inside the cylinders
