One wont hear it unless you 'look' for it and if your ICE is playing.

same problem exists in 3.0 safari,made the service center replace tie rods and what not under warranty,but the problem is still there,the GM of service center here said that its a manufacturing problem and poses no threat.
The way that klank or snapping sound is made as if something will break pretty soon and turns head everywhere lol. I had a bolero before the safari, it was way refined in terms of build stability and resistance.

Suspension Sound - Squeaking sound at 10-15 kmph speed on uneven roads.
This started after the recent heavy rains in Hyderabad. Cant hear it with windows rolled up. Altho this looks like it is a temporary issue, any quick fix for this one ??

Good Idea, A few safari owners can meet at a convinient CCD with sufficient parking, to discuss this over coffee. I'm game.

cheers!

Thanks Guys for initiating very helpful thread.

I own a Safari 2.2L EX Dec 07 Model, done 9K so far. Last week, I faced Crankshaft pulley assembly problem (a known problem). I was told that Tata motors had instructed all their dealers to call up customers and replace the faulty part. I did not receive any call from my dealer. Workshop engineer told me that Crankshaft Pulley and Timing belt both got damaged, which eventually smashed some components in Head assembly. Hence, all components need to be replaced as part of warranty.

As expected, workshop team has delayed placing request for the components and after almost 10 days, I was told by THE OWNER, himself, of the workshop that he called the company to courier parts by Air from Pune, which got delayed due to heavy raining.

Only GOD (TATA Motors) know when my TRUCK will be back on road.

New problem found.
On tuesday evening I started the safari after a gap of more than 24 hours. So the car was cold.
The idle was erratic. The rpm needle kept on twitching.
Once the engine warmed up idle was smooth. Anybody else seen this?

I didnt face this problem even after 3 weeks of parking without any starts inbetween.

I would suggest an ECU reset to rule out any ECU aberrations, if it still re-occurs then the sensors can be looked at.

I did some google search. It could be injector problem or sensor fault, but since the vehicle is newICP seonsor(Injector Control Pressure) sensor seems to be the culprit.

The problem is that you have to park for more than 30 hours to see this problem. So when I go to TASS they won't see any problem.
Atmost I can ask them to wash the engine bay and they start her up?
Apparently this sometimes does not show up in engine codes.

Possible, try the ECU reset first by disconnecting the battery cable, no harm + its a DIY.

Default Great Thread

This is a great thread for prospective Safari buyers like me. As usual I am taking my time to arrive at a decision, but have firmed my mind on Safari Ex. There was a major, err, difference of opinion as my wife wants to go for a sedan, which I am tired of after all these years. Finally convinced by taking her on my 3rd TD of a Safari 2.2 VX (that was the only model Han motors had for TD). Now she agrees that, as a passenger, she'd be more comfortable in a Safari.

If the safari owners could list down the things we need to check specifically for Safari (apart from the usual detailed PDI advised by TBHP) before placing the order it would help. We can ask the dealers to be doubly sure. For example, the whether the Crankshaft pulley assembly/ damper assembly has been changed or about the various noises mentioned here, so we can take corrective measures before registration.

I too noticed the hissing sound when I turned the steering to extreme right or left. I had a friend of mine and asked him to keep the steering engaged in that position and looked under the vehicle to check, but could not notice any leaks or anything unusual.

Another thing I noticed during the TD (contrary to the first TD report between Scorpio and Safari which I posted at http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/suvs-m...tml#post925065 (New Safari 2.2 VTT/ Used Tuscon/New Dzire Vdi???)) is that there is a sluggishness before the engine picks up speed. One has to press the accelerator way down to make the car zip. Was it particular to this car? This was not there in Scorpio where there was no turbo lag at all and a light press would do. When I asked, the Han motors sales guy said that the turbo gets engaged only after 3k RPM which did not sound right to me because I thought the new VTT does not have the turbo lag. Any comments on this?
