thanks, Pranav
Sorry about the late reply. But i have not tried adding 2T oil in the fuel tank except for my rx135. If you have tried it please give us info on your findings.

Regarding the system D,i use it regularly with the fuel and i feel that the vehicle smokes less when you gun the throttle and it is supposed to keep the engine internals more clean.

Nice pictures of your xylo. Blackening the B and C pillars has made it look more good. Why don't you blacken the A pillars too?

Xylo Buddies,

Not sure if all are aware of the recent change.

M&M revised Xylo's oil change interval from 15,000KMs to 20,000KMs. Every 10,000KMs is minor service

Hi,
just came from the workshop, I had specifically gone to get the oil changed, prematurely (without any specific reason) at ~8K KM. The vehicle is run 53K+ KM. The workshop had stock only of FEO and Crown wasnt available, so went ahead. The jar just mentioned of synthetic (semi / full ?) and no other specs.

Oil 6 ltr pack + Filter + Labour was Rs.2K.

If you could share your experiences on FEO. thanks,

If any lower SPEC oil is used, it might affect your oil mileage and would end up in premature oil changes rit? I shall also recheck it, planning a visit next month for a minor service with some little bit paint touch ups .

How is your experiance in the Tyre life? Mine is running stock Bridgestone Dueler AT and holding reasonably good at 43K KMs, touch wood. My friend dealer auto wash cum tyre shop is advising to use same Dueler AT tyres for good mileage, he recently replaced one set after running 55XXX KMs that too in a taxi vehicle.

My relative who has a 2010 XYLO E6 taxi vehicle, clocked 120K KMs with tyre changes around 45K KMs interval. He is getting an average of 12KMPL till date. No additional expenses other than usual services minus the suspension change recently and some body cosmetics after few minor accidents. He is so happy about the vehicle (after owning Indica and Scorp earlier) and hoping to use it for another 1-2 years if no major issues crop in.

Hi,
after the above oil change, I had emailed to M&M-CC, asking about FEO. I appreciate this part, next day itself got a call from the Service Manager; and explained me that officially Crown oil is replaced by FEO, and gradually all dealers would have it stocked. He assured me that needful testing has been done on FEO and its surely better. He commented, looking at the cost, it maybe semi-synthetic, but would try to get me the detailed specs, still awaiting.

On the tyre part, its still running on the stock Dueler AT, and are reasonably doing well, has decent threads. In the sidewall puncture thread, I had long back reported of having 2 "darts" fixed on one of the wheel since 12K @ 6 months, and now over the period of 2+ yrs, some other 4-5 punctures repaired in other wheels. Looking at these stats, I would say tyres did really well, with mix of road (or no road!) quality. Alignment & Balancing is done randomly below a 10K run. That sidewall punctured tyre was kept on front side for some time, but then is switched on rear side and just changing sides from left to right and other 3 keep moving around. Noteworthy, the 5th spare wheel was replaced once initially, and havnt been used since a long long time. Have been on Nitrogen all the while, getting checked once a month. Hopefully these 4 wheels may stretch another 8-10K KM, before burning a hole in my pocket, and most probably I may go with the same ones.

I changed my front brake liners few months back at ~46K, costing around Rs.3K. The adviser was surprised looking at my ODO, and commented that generally Scorpio/Xylo users change it at ~30K and only few stretch beyond 35K. Atleast this made me feel happy. Every 3-4 months, I get the drums cleaned (labour Rs.300).

Hi Pranav,

Thanks for the details. Useful!

My liners are yet to be changed, not sure if its because I am a sedate driver most of the time . I shall get them replaced proactively during th minor service.

as I said earlier, its good to get the liners and drums cleaned, by emery paper every few months, or every 7-8K KM. when its opened, you can see the condition of the liners and also how much the disc is worn-off. More delay on the liner change and eventually on the disc, you can see dark abrasion marks (reminds of the LP records!). If many engravings are seen, then just changing the liners even wont help, as they dont grip well together. As per one of the adviser, if the disc are affected mild, then by rubbing them on professional polishing machine, they can go off to make the surface smooth.


thanks,

Default Mahindra Xylo Clutch upgrade

Hi Guys,

In line with my travel planned to Leh and Ladakh this month, i got my clutch plate changed on my 2009 model Xylo E8 ABS from MASS as a precaution. The SA advised me that there is a upgrade for the clutch available.

Now the point i am trying to make is they changed my clutch pedal included along with all other related clutch components after which the clutch has become extremely smooth and soft. In fact the clutch is even lighter and smoother than my M800.

It sort of feels spongy and smooth, kind of weird feeling from the earlier heavy clutch. I had this sort of soft spongy clutch pedal earlier when the clutch slave cylinder had failed but at that time the clutch used to stick. I don't have any such issues now and am able to engage all the gears properly, but the clutch feeling is all weird to me right now. I checked with the SA regarding the extreme smoothness of the clutch and he said that is how the new clutch system is, I also checked for any fluid leaks in the clutch system and couldn't find any. Has anybody else tried this new clutch system and do they have the same feeling. Is the SA right about it or should i get something checked out.Please advice.

Note mods: Please merge if thread already exist for the same.

I am guessing you are experiencing the new clutch feeling. If the shift are fine you should be good.

Few things i can think of in case of complete clutch and component replacement and this smoothness are

- Fluid bleeding. Could be air lock. Could also be lower than required level of fluid.
- Clutch fork - Sometimes replacing all but clutch fork can create this


Most importantly the new clutch is definitely smoother in comparison to the very used worn out old clutch which worn out gradually making you accustomed to the small changes each day. Its like slow poison that you are so used it that it makes it feel the right tightness.

When you change the delta is so high it may feel too soft or too lose.

Good that you checked for any fluid leak. You can request the SA to do a cursory check if clutch lines are fine for your mind sake.
