BUT, i'm now guessing that fool didn't flush the oild oil, just topped up with some 1litre of my new oil, and kept the rest for himself. So much for not having time to stay and watch what the mechanics do
Wow..that sounds like something..
OK guys, thanks a lot for the replies. Will give the car for service sometime next week, but would it be possible to recommemd me a good maruti SVC? I usually goto Kalyan motors, K'pura road, they do a good job with 'small' things, but never come across any major engine jobs done there.
Also, at how many kms do 800s usually need engine rebuilds? i've seen a lot of them doing 1lakh+, and even my car has been performing really well despite severe torture in terms of heavy right feet, long service intervals, etc :P.
was just thinking, if the current repairs already cost a bomb, i'll ask my bro to spend some more and get a rebuild?

i am not sure excess oil will cause ring failure except for white smoke.
1. Is your car overheating. Even if the coolant is loosing is the temp crossing the half mark.??
2. park the car on a possibly cemented surface overnight. and find the leakage of oil.
3. Did you change the filter while changing oil?
