OK. Mine is an authorised Maruti Service Center and run by my father's friend, so maybe I can't go wrong with them.

Default Re: What to change at 1 Lakh kilometers?

Sorry for bumping an old thread.
Here I have the same query.
My Santro has just finished 120000km on the odo.
Gave it for service. What all specifically has to be done.
Its has been a trouble free car. I have done timely maintenance of the car.

Under chassis anti-rust coat 7yrs old, Do i revisit?
Timing belt changed 2yrs back
Brake pads changed a yr back
Clutch assembly changed 8 months back
Full body paint, interior cleaning after removing the carpet done 5 months back.

Its gone for engine service due for a long time now.

So I have asked for general check up and service with oil changes.
Engine oil flush and replace (was advised to go for servo mineral oil)
Oil filter fuel filter replace
Check spark plug
Check gear oil, power steering oil (should I top up or change?)
Air filter (Should I change? May be more than 2yrs old)

A/c cooling has reduced over the years (What needs to be done?)
Mileage has dropped from 15 to 10 in the past 10yrs of ownership, Why?
Whatelse do I check?
Is tank cleaning and sump cleaning required?
I have run dry few times in the past(college days). How do I know how much of damage has it caused the fuel pump?

These guys talk about de-carbonizing engine and injector cleaning with some liquid, does it really work?
