When was the last alignment and balancing done?

Can you take the car to any reputed MASS and get the suspension checked? I feel that's out and wearing off the tyre that is riding on it.

Is the car pulling to one side?

I beg your pardon for this late response. Dont always have access to proper internet onboard ship.

Anyway, the wheel alignment and balancing had been carried out recently when the last sevicing was done at a reputed MASS. I have been constantly monitoring the condition of the new tyres. Seems satisfactory so far.

However, now that you mention it, i do feel the car is ever so slightly pulling to the left. i'll get the suspension checked now. Thanks a lot for your advice.

Please take the car to a efficient MASS and get the suspension checked plus the rims also true-ness.

Any competent tyre dealer who is good at Alignment should be able to help you out.

Hi,
My Waggy recently when i tried to reverse on an incline showed less power compared to 3-4 years back when i did the same. Clutch also seems like a half clutch.
The acceleration has considerably slowed down. What could be the issue? I've put up 44K kms on the odo.
Yearly service is due next week, before giving it would like expert opinion on what could be the issue.

Many thanks in advance.

Ramki

I would doubt the clutch first than anything else.

When you move from standstill, how good is the momentum when you release the clutch? Try another WagonR (F10D) and ascertain this.

Another thing you can try is the hand brake test:

Park the vehicle with the Hand Brake fully engaged. Then start the car and slot into 1st and with the Hand Brake still engaged, release the clutch while simultaneously giving throttle input. A good & a healthy clutch is more likely to cause the engine stall when your clutch is 40-50% released while a worn out (Weak) clutch will ensure the vehicle wont turn off even when the clutch is released all the way to 70-80%.

A good clutch will also result in the car showing every signs of surging ahead and trying to lift itself up like a frog while doing this test.

Thanks parag.

As i've said there is a half clutch issue. After releasing half clutch(without handbrake) the car moves. I have stalled the engine many times due to this half clutch issue.
Is my clutch weak and needs work or is it clutch/clutch-cable adjustment issue?

You can get the play adjusted but with your explanation, I am more than sure that its your clutch that's gone weak and is asking for replacement.

Okeeee thanks again parag.
I understand that its a 2007 Nov model but also clutch to go off at only 44K on the odo! .
What can be the causes for this? Please enlighten.

Trust me, 44 K is good. Its not gone its only got weak but you don't want to drive in that condition.

If you ask at the ASC, they are likely to tell you that on a average 30-35K is when clutch for Petrol cars get changed unless you are a really good driver.
Go ahead and replace the kit - Clutch Plate, Cover Assembly, Release Bearing, Flywheel and Cable.
The last 2 parts (Flywheel & Cable) will only add another 1000-1200 to your bill but its is always advised to do so.

Guys, I'm facing a couple of issues with my 2004 F10D Wagon R. Odo reads 67k kms.

After driving my car for 6-7 kms, whenever I stop at a traffic signal, the car's rpm drops significantly, almost at the point of stalling but then it rises by itself. I guess the ECU prevents it from stalling. This cycle repeats till the signal gets green and I move ahead.
Spark plugs were last replaced around 3 years and 20k kms back. Fuel filter and air filter around 10 months back.

I am attaching a video for the same. You can see how the engine shakes at 00:05, 00:10 and 00:15 minutes. This happens when the rpm drops too low.




The second issue is that sometimes during pick up from a standstill, I can see that the gear lever shudders a lot. Not just vibrations but i can see the stick moving back and forth repeatedly. It makes some noise too. I have to slip the clutch to prevent it doing so.
Have the gearbox mounts become loose or is it something else.

Actually this issue is since a long time and I have never bothered about it until now.

Any help in solving the above two issues is much appreciated.
Thanks.

Was your washed recently? Any chance of water being sprayed in the engine bay? I faced the exact same issue few months ago when I got my car back after a wash. I observed this when I drove back home for 4-5 kms. IIRC, the issue had self-healed by next morning itself. It was summer time and quite hot at that, so it might have helped with the evaporation.

If the above is not applicable, the part which got wet in my case and was affecting the idling, must be malfunctioning in your case. MAF sensor and Idle control valve come to my mind.

Thanks.
Regarding your 1st issue, check/clean the Throttle body, IAC valve and all ignition related components.

Your 2nd issue sounds like faulty transmission mounts/ gear lever bushes. If these are fine, then let me know.

Shashi

Guys I'm facing a serious problem with my engine.

Mine is a CNG version and has been performing quite well for the past 5 years and 49000 kms. However, recently, I've observed that upon driving for a while with 4 ppl and A/c on, the car simply stalls even with the clutch pressed. This is especially dangerous in slow moving traffic wherein I have no option but to drive on petrol.

Another issue is that my car performs horribly on petrol. The response is completely unpredictable and I need to rev it hard to get it moving else it comes into motion from standstill like a turtle. I've taken the car to 2 different MASS with the issue. The first one, the SA told me that with CNG, I need to give throttle more frequently and for petrol, all they had to say was that the petrol performance degrades with use of CNG as injectors get choked due of lack of use.

Don't see how this is possible as I drive on petrol at least twice a week when I exhaust my CNG apart from the fact that the engine always starts on petrol. Second MASS representative said that the performance is fine even when i told him that the entire 49000 kms has been done solely by me and I can TELL that something is amiss. Still, I got injector cleaning and throttle body overhaul done at both places but to no avail. I drove a friends VXi model purchased at a similar time and it's much better in terms of throttle response.

My clutch is a bit weak due to the age but i doubt that's the issue as the car stalls without any jerks with the clutch pressed. Besides, low load performance on CNG is absolutely fine compared to that on petrol. Any suggestions are welcome. Also, if possible, please suggest a MASS or absolutely any reputed mechanic in Mumbai who can give me an actual analysis and a reasonable solution other than "CNG cars dont run well on petrol" or "We can TRY replacing injectors with new ones and see if it solves the problem". I dont want to blow up 10 grand and be stuck with the same problem.
