My car was in a good shape, it wasn't rusted at all.
I could get 55K cos of CNG n sunroof, without that it was going for 35k.

The dealer was trying to sell it for 1.1 lakh the very next day after he bought from me
But now he is quoting 80K after so many months.
Just saw that you have sold your Zen. The Zen owners community has lost a valuable member. All the best for the new ride.

I agree with you.

These sensors normally don't fail.
The sensor costed me 3800 (in 2012), it was difficult to procure.
But the new sensor did not solve the problem.

Thanks in advance.
Are you referring to MAP SENSOR( MANIFOLD ABSOLUTE PRESSURE SENSOR).
I guess, Zen does not have mass air flow sensor.

Can you share the symptoms?
Its easy to diagnose MAP sensor with a multi-meter, please refer the manual for the voltage values.

Attached is the parts list for all maruti vehicles, along with the price(its an old doc, prices quoted are incorrect, but will give you a rough idea about the cost)

Attaching the workshop manual for your reference.

I am not sure. Car's pick up was not good with the AC on and the engine was not idling for more than 30 seconds after which it shuts off. Mechanic was a reliable one and may be he was not sure about the part name. He fixed this and the part is mentioned as "ignition coil with wire cable" - certainly doesn't look like a sensor to me. Including labour I was charged Rs. 2000. The car runs smooth and the acceleration is good with the AC on.
