Default What to change at 1 Lakh kilometers?

Hi
I own a Maruti Suzuki Zen (2000) which recently covered 1 Lakh kilometers. Can you suggest me the parts etc. to be changed at this service? The car is running fine and I don't find much problems with it.

@Mods- Please move the thread if required.

Hi

you can try from service / ownership manual if you have one or i guess its still available for download from maruthi website. To my knowledge you can have a check on Timing belt if its not looked into all these days. Many gurus around can suggest more on this i beleive.

  • Change all rubbers - including in suspension and timing belt
  • Get your alternator and starter motor checked and connectors cleaned & serviced, if necessary
  • Check all rubber hoses and change, regardless of how it looks
  • Clean your petrol tank

I would say the rubber bushings and electricals. Timing belt and all should be checked at sub 1 lakh kms at around 80K kms. Anyway if not done at 80 the IL kms should be good

  1. all suspension rubber parts which have not been changed say just six months ago - buy only OE stuff
  2. check tie rod ends,and rack/pinion for abnormal noise
  3. check driveshaft bellows - replace if torn
  4. radiator hoses
  5. give the engine Nulon treatment and see the difference
  6. check underbody for corrosion - carry out metal treatment and then apply antirust(Fucot or the like)

What is "NULON" treatment?

By electricals you mean the normal light, horns and stuff or something sophisticated? I got the battery changed a couple of months ago. Plus, which engine oil to go for?

This saturday, I'll take the car to the service station and remain there all through it's servicing. Let's see how it turns out to be. Also, would they get annoyed by me staying there all through it? How to approach them?

One more thing, is this NULON treatment available at all Maruti service stations because I doubt it. So, is it absolutely necessary or maybe I could do it myself some other day?

^^^I'd stay away from Nulon if I were you. My MASS seems to use something else... IIRC it was BG. I'd stay way from that too. I doubt u'll find Nulon at a MASS anyway.

Another item to be changed would be power steering fluid (dunno if any Zens have power steering). I'm told Maruti recommends changing every 9 years; though I don't think its mentioned in Maruti manuals.

Hi Abhi

I have a Maruti Alto 1.1 Vxi 2000 model that would be clocking 1 lakhs KM in about couple of days, Now give you brief this cars was purchased from Calicut and transported to Hyderabad couple of months back.

These were the thing I did on the car,

1)Engine was complete flashed
2)Timing belt was replaced
3)Brakes Pad front and Backup can Checked and if need replace it
4)Gear Box oil should be changed its must
5)Battery can be check and replaced , I had to replace this because it was winter and used the car only on the weekend , so had issues starting the car in the mornings. But once charged it would be ok and did not have issue for that day. Have a small baby replaced it never gave it second thoughts
6)Front and back wheel bearing can check and changed if needed but I did not have any issue so just greased it.
7)Wheel alignment is must, if you have not done it frequently.

I have complete job detail will try to scan that and update you.

Nice thread. Most new gen cars will have things mentioned in the owners manual that a service center should check/change/replace during certain stage of a car's life.

See that the service center do follow the manual. Cross check and question them if they have ignored something or have go abroad with a part replacement.

I would also suggest a good wax polish for the car and a interior cleaning/shampooing among what others have posted.

I doubt if MASS will allow you to hang around in the Service Bay, But then if you know the guys there it should be fine

Can anyone throw more light on Nulon Engine treatment.

More than anything you need to change the car itself

Just kidding, do check all timing belts, and electricals, in addition to what others have already pointed out.

If the timing belt has not been replaced prior to this or has been replaced and you have run it around 60 K, I would say get it replaced, even if it looks like it can go a few thousand KMs more.
