Yes sir, they are rotating freely.

No screeching sounds or for that matter, no unusual sounds are heard during braking or otherwise too.

In the chart: Fuel filter Cartridge is Fuel filter
I guess diesel engines call for fuel filter replacement much more frequently. For my City petrol it's 48 months/ 80000 km and it costs Rs 514.

Hey Anurag,

I noticed something, not sure if this is with all the creta's. If you look at the picture without the brake ligts, the red lights on the tail gates are ON.

If you press the brake, the high mounted stop lamp glows, but the lights on the tail gate is OFF.

Is that how it is supposed to be?

In the first image, parking lights/headlights when switched ON, the two lights on the tail gate glow along with the arrow in the LED Reflector.

In the second image, I had switched OFF the parking light and pressed the brake hence the lights on the tail gate aren't glowing.

Ah! That makes sense. Congratulations on your purchase.

Inspired by this video, always wanted to see how the suspension will be working on my car over the road I take regularly. Nothing path breaking or anything great in this post but just my curiosity.



Mounted the rear dashcam underneath (On the tail pipe and recorded the video). I had driven for 30 kms @ 100 kmph constant before fixing the dashcam at that location. There was no other proper place where I could mount the camera and secure it with zip ties.

Used a 10,000mAh power bank and connected the dashcam to it using the 4m cable provided in the dashcam package and kept the power bank in the boot.

That's pretty neat DIY you did there.
Looks like Creta has got decent enough shock absorber there. It isn't just way too stuff nor it is way too wobbly. A tad bit on the smoother side.

Pretty interesting video there that is quite an effort with the mounting of the Dashcam and pulling the cables et al. But this doesn't in any way prove if the suspension is better or worse or for that matter even if its working beautifully or not. Anurag has rightly pointed out that he did this out of curiosity and that pretty much is seen there from the outcome.

The Camera is mounted on the Beam pointing towards the suspension system. At any given time, the camera is at a fixed distance away from both the road surface (unless you get into typical off roads) as well as the suspension. So this actually shows the relative movement between a rigidly fixed camera versus always in action suspension system.

Reminds of this ad whenever we refer to working of suspension and the competition :

MODIFICATION: EGR Delete

Was waiting for 20,000 kms to complete so I could blank the EGR valve until then I drove with the EGR coupler removed. Have driven for almost 2,000 kms approximately before placing an order for the EGR delete kit from eBay.


EGR coupler...

...coupler removed
Hyundai Creta 1.6L CRDi SX(O) - An Ownership Log - Update: 1,00,000 km up!-img_20180327_025112.jpg


CEL thrown with the EGR coupler removed was P0489 which means Exhaust gas Re-circulation (EGR) system -circuit low” or “Exhaust Gas Re-circulation “A” Control Circuit Low.

CEL lit (car doesn't go into limp mode when the CEL lit)

Diagnostic Report
Hyundai Creta 1.6L CRDi SX(O) - An Ownership Log - Update: 1,00,000 km up!-p0489.jpg

Got the EGR delete kit from eBay for ₹700 including shipping (was shipped from Poland. Order to Delivery in 14 days).

The kit contains:
  1. EGR-078 Stainless Steel (1.5 mm) - 1 piece
  2. EGR-175 Gasket Gambit (1 mm) - 2 pieces

Contacted BHPian interc00led and meet him at our FNG since working will be easier as they have the right tools to help us. Took us almost 2 hours to complete the work due to the heat from the engine bay.

Actual plan was to install the blanking plate in place where the gasket (Figure No.: 28418E) is on the EGR valve control unit on the EGR unit that will let gases into the EGR cooler and then into the intake manifold but due to the EGR valve/cooler's positioning it was difficult and required a lot more parts to be removed to gain access to those screws...

Intake Manifold

...BHPian interc00led decided to go the other way and install it on the exhaust manifold side. This is the gasket that sits between the exhaust manifold and the EGR unit (Figure No.: 28492).

Screws removed where the blanking plate needs to be fit

Blanking plate fixed and pipe reconnected
Hyundai Creta 1.6L CRDi SX(O) - An Ownership Log - Update: 1,00,000 km up!-img_20180516_031531.jpg


After clocking 3,000+ kms without EGR (2,000 kms with couple removed and 1,000 kms post blanking plate fix), I can say:
  • Throttle response is better in the lower RPM range (1000-1300 RPM) as compared to stock;

  • I used to notice black smoke at 2000 RPM when accelerating in 4th gear onwards but now I can see the smoke when the RPM is over 3000 RPM but the quantity is reduced.

  • After the plate has been installed both BHPian interc00led and me have noticed the surge in 3rd gear. It was slightly on the linear side earlier but now the surge is evident clearly.

Will keep updating the thread as I clock miles.

If you don't mind me asking, why did you do it in the first place? I mean, did you find any lack in performance? I know it makes a noticeable difference when the EGR is clogged after 50k miles or over but your Creta is pretty new isn't it? Also, why wait till 20,000 kms? I've also heard the engine gets louder after 'delete'. So, how's yours sounding now?

Don't get me wrong. I'm asking as I'm wary of messing around with the mechanical bits and wondering if it's something I can consider for my diesel i20.

No offence taken buddy.

Did the EGR delete as the engine would run better and cleaner. I didn't want soot deposition in the intake manifold and other parts that will create issues as it gets older (read clocks miles).

EDIT:

Not sure on increase in noise levels as the Creta is silent already inside.

MODIFICATION #21: Engine hood insulation

The ugly part under the hood is finally covered now thanks to AliExpress.

Contacted the seller and sent images of the car and hood underside for confirmation. Within 3 minutes received a positive response so placed an order for it. Received the item in 14 days flat with no customs duty. Link to the item.

Item Cost: $ 54.28 = ₹ 3,690
Coupon used: $10 = ₹ 679
Net Paid: ₹ 3,000

Package Contents:
  • Insulation Sheet x 1

  • Retainer Screws x 15

Since the holes on the insulation match with that of the holes on the hood, it only requires one to screw fit those clips all the holes. The hood has a total of 11 holes that need fasteners to be plugged-in to hold the insulation intact.

Another FE Update - After the Remap

With higher usage of the car this month with almost 4,600 kms driven, this is the second full tank completed post the remap and the FE figures are back in the range of what I used to get before remap. Pretty happy with this.

First tank FE (14.12 kmpl); Second tank FE (19.16 kmpl) and a mini summary

*****

Also to protect the black cladding all-round the car, purchased Armor All Original Protectant from Amazon.in for ₹ 250.

MODIFICATION #22: Rear Spoiler

Thanks to BHPian speedmunster for help on guiding me to an accessory store for Rear Spoiler. Had visited many shops on the Minister Road area for fitment of the rear spoiler and got a quote ranging from ₹ 4,000 to ₹ 8,300 for a body coloured one with 3M + Clamps to hold the spoiler in place rather than the spoilers that need holes drilled in the body for fixture. Car Sonics @ Minister Road, had the spoiler in stock and got the job done in flat 5 minutes and was charged ₹ 3,680.

Clamps provided to fix the spoiler firmly on the body
