Hi hdi,
Even i have a July09 Gala Red QJD Aura & it has just come from 2nd service (5400 km). My query is engine Oil for QJD is supposed to be 3.2 ltrs as per manual, then why did they charge for 3.7 ltrs? I may be missing something but just want to know so that i am informed when i go for my 3rd service.

The same has been mentioned several times in Vista threads. Just make sure that they don't overfill it. (ie. above maximum mark of the dip stick)

The actual capacity is only 3.2 litres. The user manual itself mentions it. But when changing oil, the quantity required will be even less since 100% of the old oil would not have been drained. But the TASC here says that the billing being online, the bill can only be for 3.7 litres!

Thanks for the info hdi.
Well I am getting an avg of 17-18kmpl with 100% AC with a 70% highway & 30% of city driving.

Also did you not ask the TASC guys as to why 3.7 and not 3.2 as written in manual? My intention of asking this question is just to be prepared when i go in for 3rd service. That's it nothing beyond it.

Default Re: Got my new Gala Red Indica Aura Vista Quaddrajet

Guys,

I have been facing problem with my Indica vista (quadra )clutch for some time now.

a) Its very smooth and light when I start the car and becomes very sluggish and hard after 10-15 kms.I have given it to the TASC and they do something and its ok for a few days and again the problem starts

b) Recently I had a big shock when I noticed that when I from 3rd to 4th,clutch got stuck in the middle(ie neither engaged nor free) .I had to use my toe to go under the clutch and get it out .When clutch was half on,the gear was not working.This has happened atleast 10 times in the last 2 months.However TASC is not willing to fix it as they say that they are not able to reproduce the problem when they drive

What should I do to fix/change the clutch/gearbox.

My car is still in extended warranty

Thanks
Hari.

Default Scratches in Clutch kit ordered from 99rpm

Hi,

I recently ordered a clutch kit and release bearing from 99rpm.com(Indica vista Aura QUADRA) and I see a lot of scratches.Customer rep from 99rpm is saying that that is how tata products come out and the quality is inline with other tata motors spare part.

However I am not sure and I don't have any exp what so ever with a tata motors spare part.

Pl help me answer the following questions

a) The release bearing looks old to begin with .Are the release bearing scratches seen in the uploaded photos normal and expected?

b) The clutch plate look new.However paint is peeling off from the traingle shaped screws.The 99rpm rep is saying that in certain cases we may even see rusting on the traingle shaped screws.

I am not sure if this is the expected quality of an tata motors spare part.

Thanks,
hdi
