Yup. The car did start up normally after the engine stopped.

Low levels of fuel in tank is the nearest link.

Should resolve this issue to report back tomorrow.

Thank you, SS.

Not sure why the noise won't happen when you've got Apollo Aceleres in front - are they a different size than the Goodyears?

The CV Joint rubber Booths are in good condition

yes the original is 175/65/14 the accleres are 185/60/14

The noise is because of the extra load on the CV joint during a turn because of the wider tyre. The narrower tyres don't exceed that load threshold somehow, and don't generate the noise yet - but soon will. Have the CV joints repaired / replaced.

Felt wierd after 60K long kms and 2.5yrs - first time something like this has occurred.

Any clues to what could be the reason for an abrupt & volatile rpm jump couppled with engine shut-off.

The car is a Indi V2 Turbo, June'07 model.
With steering turned completely, the PS hydraulic pump will put extra load on the engine. The governer (of the FIP) is not being able to deal with it. With this level of surging/ hunting, I would say something in the governer is badly worn. Otherwise I would say the governing system is gumming up. A confirmatory test would be to rev the engine to say 3000 rpm, and suddenly let go the throttle. The engine will stop or almost stop.

Can't explain the slope.

Have tried the hi-rev test and seems fine with no stops or almost stops.

At the incidence, the car was low on fuel and to that was added the A/C, the sharp hi-rise 'parking curves' in a mall driveway, 4 well-fed pax on-board and a throttle speed of abt 25kmph - guess a wrong combination of sorts did me in.

But, now am payin extra attention to such an occurance and shall keep the forum reported.

Safe for now.

Thanx for writing in, as well.

Cheers.

Default Indica DLG - Hard Clutch

Clutch has become very hard, it really pain to drive it. ODO is at 60K Kms. It is a signal for worn-out clutch pending for replacement. It used to fine and had given it for servicing 3 weeks back. Usually used to get it serviced at TASS, but this time had it done private garage.

Anyway to figure-out if the problem is with worn-out clutch

SS, I guess I must have confused the issue. It's the other way around. The narrower tyres made the noise. It's absolutely fine with the wider tyres. So I went and bought two more wide accleres

Its not necessarily the clutch plates.

Check the clutch cable and its settings.

Indica used cables right?

No, the gearbox mount or clutch bell housing is yet to be changed. Guess what I did with the old flywheel, when my mom took the car to our native village, I just dumped it in the boot and asked the driver(he comes from the town nearby) to have it machined and polished.

Today I got it back , looking nice and shiny. What it cost me - Rs.150/-
It was still a good lesson learnt, never plan a repair very close to a long trip.

I also had the clutch cable changed along with the plate replacement, cable was not looking too good.

Hello all once again, I am planning to sell off my Xeta GLX in a few days, and retain my V2 LSi. I understand that Indica uses an Electronic distributorless Ignition system controlled by the ECU. I have installed K&N CAI on my V2, performance on AC at Higher RPMs is much better, Now I want to upgrade to MSD ignition systems. Previously I had done that on my 1999 carb M 800. Since that was an entirely different setup, I ask the gurus to suggest the exact compatible bolt on module of MSD without any electrical modifications. I wish to get a little more from my Indica in terms of performance. Thank you all in advance.

What exactly do you want from your car, as Indica petrol (or diesel)is not that tuner friendly. It is little that you can do in it.

And adding a K&N filter and my performance increased xx% is just a feel good factor. Believe me!

i want to improve engine behaviour. I dont want Gold sensor to signal the ecu for better throttle enhancement, instead I wish to try msd ignition module which can be connected in series or as parellel circuitry. Mine is pure petrol. I have driven 10 kms without any air filter, suddenly engine noise subsided, vibrations vanished and that encouraged me to attach a CAI. There was no difference in pickup with ac on or off. This change in drive may not be applicable on most cars.

Today on my way to Mumbai, while passing through Pardi flyover NH8, my V2 petrol was running on full AC and suddenly the temperature needle reached red mark. AC stopped working and I pulled over, tried to put some coolant in the coolant water but due to pressure of the hot fluid, burnt my fingers, little knowing the coolant level was intact.

Waited for an hour to let the engine cool down and drove to Valsad, Lucas-tvs, checked the radiator fan relay, was working alright, but the fan fuse of 80A and a secondary fuse had blown off and charred. He did it within seconds. He also explained that fuse burning can happen to any new car too.

I have read quite a lot of Indica overheating stories, new and old. I was baffled for sometime, thinking about the radiator fan going off or the water pump failure.

I thank God almighty for bringing us back to my hometown where the car stood up in minutes.

part2: Another sad story of TASC, this time Carewell Motors, Valsad. My driver took my Indica to the service centre yesterday to get the windscreen wiper linkages changed. The service engineer's reply was " your car is too old now, why spend Rs 3800 on the new set, get them cleaned and serviced for Rs 1000 and collect your car in 4-5 days".

Got the entire windscreen wiper assembly with the motor and sprinkler serviced today afternoon at Lucas-TVS-Lion Auto Electricals, Valsad for Rs 550. Also got the starter and alternator opened and serviced for Rs 300. The windscreen wiper linkage had not corroded but jammed, unable to find a direct spare replacement in the local market.
