Default anti-stall setting . what is this ?

My Indigo user manual tells that you should have the engine tuned , particulary for antistall setting. Any idea what this is and how it can be done ?

more info on the year and model of the vehicle would let us help you better, if the version one indigo petrol i am guessing these came with a 32 bit processor and think they have idling setting so that the engine wont stall!

AFAIK there is a setting to set the closing movement of the throttle valve therefore to set the idle rpm of the engine. This got to be meddling with that and I guess they may set it faintly higher in due course of time I guess so that the engine is not let to speeds below due to which it STALLS !!

AFAIK 2003 LS,Yours is a non intercooled diesel without the electronic fuel pump,you must be talking about idle speed setting which can be manually done easily in previous versions of indigo and indica.

Default Under load and off again

I believe you have an ecu and sensors which change your idle depending on whether your engine is under a load or not. Under a load means, lights, a/c, in gear or out etc. You may well hear your engine increase its rpms under load and then decrease when the load lessens. The hardware and software to accomplish this constitutes your anti-stall system.

With time road and engine vibration, heat, cold, corrossion and who knows what else can make wires, sensors and ecu go bad. The software may need to be updated as well if there is a newer, better version. So, Tata says get them checked once in awhile. It's a smart thing to do.
