Yes i saw it was present but in 20000 service. So i mentioned that it can be checked in every service.
I think your point might be to replace?

Just for information....
How much does it cost for cleaning injector and fuel pump? I was charged 1000 and 500 for these.

hmm.... i asked that question because, some one told me that it costs only 400 for injector cleaning.

Back to topic, does the injector cleaning and fuel pump cleaning has to go hand in hand?

Cleaning a fuel pump? Thats a new one. AFAIK, the fuel pump is a non-serviceable item. Is it the fuel filter you are talking about?

Yes, fuel pump. The job reads as cleaning fuel pump, restrainer(!?), remove refit fuel pump.... 500Rs.

Got to say that this "injector and fuel pump cleaning" job has made the engine a lot smooth. When you accelerate, there is difference in the way engine purrs.

Thanks for this valuable information, I made a list of the same and went to my neighborhood work shop...and this what I was told about the checklist..

Please provide some feedback, as I have got the things, however will get it serviced tomorrow..

Esteem Type 1 - 97, Carb.

1. Engine Oil - I have got Mobil Super. Dealer told me that its at par with Shell Helix ultra..

2. Radiator Flush & Coolant - 2 lt, Golden cruiser, recommended by the dealer again.

3. Gear Oil - 2.5 Ltr, HP Gear Drive - EP 90

4. Spark Plugs - Champion, 10 YC

5. Injector and Fuel Pump Cleaning - Workshop guy says that only MPFI cars, in carb the fuel pump is fixed and cannot be cleaned. is it true ?

6. Clean/Adjust Throttle - Again only in MPFI

7. Timing Belt - Saying Rs.550 is the labour for the same. The belt is Rs.270


I also got a product i.e. called System G, its a petrol additive, Rs.220 for 200 Ml..has anyone actually used it ? is it recommended ?
