Default The sniffing continues!

Yesterday,I did'nt need any sniffing actually.A swift just passed me and it had this smell too,and it was'nt even stationery! Just a thought,could it be anything to do with the air conditioning?

Hi Pillai,

The smell you get may be due to the coolant getting over heated and would have reduced in volume.( i faced this problem once when my car was new).

If that were the case wouldn't you expect the temp gauge to register an increase in temperature?

That has not been happening to me, but the burning smell is pretty prominent, especially when I run the car at a high rpm in any gear.

Hello Friends,

If you are experiencing any unusual behaviour in SWIFT or kind of sluggishness,get take it to any authorised dealer workshop and get your vehicle checked there by using a diagnostic tool known as Tech-2.

Maximum of your problems will get resolved.I use to face some problems like humming noice in 5th gear and sluggishness and low pickup.I got it done last week and my lovely SWIFT is unmatcheable now...

So please do it...

Thanks and regards,

Rajendra

Well I did take it to the dealer and took a test drive with their mechanic. Funnily enough (why is this ALWAYS the case?) with him sitting there, there was NO burning smell, even after revving the engine to high heaven. He complimented me on my driving skills (since I was taking it to 80-90km/h in 2nd gear) and NO damn burning smell.

He said that it may take some time for the clutch plate to set against the flywheel or something to that effect and since car was new, there may be some play / material friction at initial stages and whatever it was is now ok, since clutch/handbrake setting was quite ok.

The 5th gear engine humming noise, he insisted was due to timing belt resonance(!) due to engine load at exactly 50km/h in 5th gear and is a design issue, just like maruti water pump noise.

Hey sandeep,

it is not design issue with maruthi. that mechanic can't give u a better answer.

I too had couple of questions abt rattling sound in my swift doors , so the mechanic told me that all the swift cars have it and they have sent a letter to maruthi( i just kept quite knowing there is no point in talking 2 them).

Bye

Default Sluggish Swift, Edit: And other swift speed related queries

Hi,

Yesterday I was travelling back from Lonavala. Tried pusing hard but the speedo was stuck at 140. RPM 3500. Drive was smooth and good but some how vehicle stopped responding to the gas peddal at 140.

Can this be because vehicle is new (Just 2600 km run). Is it possible that Maruti keeps the speed limit for new cars, to avoid engine damage?

Has anyone else experienced such thing?

It could have also been the fact that you were in 5th (which is an overdrive). Since the torque reaching the wheels is the least among all the gears, the car could have been bogged down by head wind, road gradient or any other factor.

Try accelerating in 3rd or 4th, i'm sure you'll see better results. BTW, is your car petrol or diesel?

Isnt that the speed set in the speed limiter?? by Maruti?

No speed limiter - only rev limiter that cuts in at 6500 rpm. Also the Swift is capable and under her limits for speeds greater than 140 kmph !

Petrol Swift.

Maruti quotes max speed as 160 kmph. I am sure it can take more.

As I have already mentioend it was doing 140 at around 3.5k on RPM.

If the rev limiter allows 6.5k then surely the speed should increase.

What i faced was, rev stuck at 3.5k at full throttle

Thats what, try accelerating in 4th gear. You shud be able to cross 140kmph without probs.

he would be able to cross 140 in the 4th gear but isn't the rev limit in 5th gear of 3500rpm to low for the swifts engine
