Default Brake oil leakage

Hi Rajesh,

Can you please share if you are still having problem of brake oil leakage? If no, how was it fixed? I am facing the same problem in my car and oil outside the reservoir shows up every time I clean it. Asked the service guys to look into it but they just cleaned the area during washing rather than fix the problem. That's usual Tata way I guess. I have also asked them to fix the high beam issue a couple of times. Now they have started saying this is how the car is designed.

Still struggling to find a good TASS in NCR area. Any suggestions friends?

Hi Amit1234singla

Its spillage of oil through cap. Mine was fixed after 3rd visit. I do not know what different they did.

When I checked later, I could not find any oil there. I will check it and update later. Sorry.

I assumed that it was due to overfilling of the fluid at factory level / dealer level and so did not bother. I had already cleaned it when I took it for service.

I checked today and there are no more stains in the brake fluid container. So it was just that one spotting. Hopefully it won't recur.

The brakes have got a very good bout of exercise as it has been criss crossing Western Ghats for a couple of times and that should have been enough work for any fresh leak to manifest.

A couple of videos of the same mountain stretch going down and coming up:





The distance between Tirunelveli and Alleppey (225kms including that mountain part was covered with 13.21L of diesel giving 17.03kpl. (2 people).

Very good mileage figures again. I am a little surprised how the Manzza reels out better efficiency figures than the Figo.

Hi,

This is another tution run, this time in Manza. The palce can be reached in different routes ranging from 1.8km to 2.2km.





I actually wanted to mark the junctions etc in the video itself. Any freeware for that?

Hi,

Though I wanted to test similar runs in the Figo and Manza, has not worked out properly yet.

With the above tution runs and school runs, the Manza covered 154 km in two days.

The tution runs on two days is about 7.9 + 9.2 kms making it 17.1km. That is a total of 4 runs in two days. Please note that the temperature needle is firmly in C in all these runs. Then comes the school run, which is 3 kms in the town, 10.3 kms in the SH and remaining (2.5 making a total of 15.8km) in a road off the SH11. Two a day (31.6km up and down) and that is 63.2km per day and 126.4 km for two days.

That brings the total to (17.1 + 126.4) 143.5 km. Other than this it has run 9.5kms in town.

This 154 kms consumed 10.14L giving a 15.18kpl (15.6 as per car).

The driving was a mixture of mine and our driver's.

The Figo thread has calculation for similar usage for it.

Hi,

Sorry, for that blurry image.

Tata Indigo Manza Quadrajet Aura Plus - Monarch Red-image217_medium.jpg <br />
And the on board computer shows 18.1kpl.<br /> <br />
It would cover another 31.6km in the evening. Would fill it on Friday when it would have covered another 150kms at the least.</div>   <div style=

Hi,

The Manza was put on duty for all my daughter related runs for a whole week (28/06/2010 to 02/07/2010) - tution classes, school runs and entrance coaching classes.

There is a little temple run on some days which would be about 5 kms per day.

The odometer at the end of the day (km):

28/06/2010 - 075.3
29/06/2010 - 155.1
30/06/2010 - 230.2
01/07/2010 - 325.5
02/07/2010 - 386.6
03/07/2010 - 538.0

It missed one school run on 02/07/2010 when my daughter was dropped at school after a run to Kaduthuruthy in the Figo. On that day here evening tution was run twice for getting some books.

The whole week the on board display varied from a high of 18.1 and ended up with a 17.2 figure.

She took in 33.41L of diesel and giving a figure of 16.1 kpl for that run.

If that missing school trip has to be added the run should have been 570km and so my daughter now travels approximately 270 kms ( i have reduced the extra running) each week and this she would for the next two years.

That would be close to 25000kms in two years and the car would do 50000kms!

The next week it would be the Figo for these runs!

Hi,

On May 20th, I finished the 2nd free service.

Tata Indigo Manza Quadrajet Aura Plus - Monarch Red-manza2ndservicejobslip20052010_medium.jpg <br /> <a href=Tata Indigo Manza Quadrajet Aura Plus - Monarch Red-manza2ndserviceinvoice20052010_medium.jpg <br />
The brake fluid 'leak' never reappeared and I think it was just an overfilled brake oil container.<br /> <br />
The sound at the rear was something loose in the boot and has been successfully contained.<br /> <br />
What a relief! I managed to post this before the car goes for the third free service.<br /> <br />

Hi, thanks for sharing the update. I too cleaned the brake fluid reservoir sometime back and leakeage never appeared again. It can be excess fluid or loose cap. My car has done about 9300 km's now. Will go for 3rd free service in about 2 weeks.

Bharanaganam - st. Alphonsa Tomb- A beatiful place to be there especially i have dreamt off once i buy my manza. Just behind the church near the Athithi guest house, the roads are excellent, it looks like hill station. Park your car and take snaps at that place.

Thanks trrk for the updates. The Manza seems to be serving you well, and with this launch Tata truly seems to have got it's act together. Hardly any initial niggles reported.

I was following the Manza test-drive thread too, and it too doesn't have any particularly serious concerns being reported. That's great.

Done that and may have posted some in my threads! I take time to have a drive in that road every time I have gone to Bharananganam.

It would be going in for third (10000) service probably on the 25th, If I can adjust the running!

It has served well.

Today it also carried six teens (my daughter and her 5 classmates) other than me (the driver) after their entrance coaching classes in the next town.
