Check if all four cylinders are firing in order. Sounds like a missing firing order issue. Is the engine dancing around, vibrating excessively when idling? Are RPMs getting erratic suddenly?

Although oil grade change wouldn't cause such issues in your car, oil sludge dislocation might cause oil channel disruption or oil sieve blockage. This wouldn't catastrophically damage your engine if you keep an eye on check engine light though. Remove the oil cap cover, shine a light in, if the condition looks kinda slick inside, probably oil wouldn't be a headache.

Edit: Also check and clean air filter, throttle body, mass air flow sensor with carb cleaning spray(don't spray air filter).

Will check the firing order of the cylinders.
It is not vibrating excessively, just that vibration is slightly more and now coming through the gear lever. Also, the idle rpm has become more pronounced.

The RPM is not getting erratic.

I suspected that there would be sludge dislocation, mostly happens around the oil pump mesh, but on opening the oil cap a good spray comes out. So no oil starvation.

The oil level and condition is quite good.

Completed a good 100 kms post the oil change.
Positives are- 4th gear can be slotted at speed of 25, no stalling, no stalling when taking off in the first gear inspite of less acceleration, car leaps forward, better pick up.
Negative- vibration, higher idling.

Yeah, then definitely a dirty throttle body/MAF/injector issue.





Do this yourself and see if the issue resolves. Injector/MAF cleaning can be done after that if the issue persists.

Battery Positive terminal
The positive terminal of the battery had become old and risky to use due to oxidation caused from the 2nd battery. When the 3rd Battery was replaced last year, I had bought a basic terminal costing 30 bucks and fixed it and wanted to still have a proper terminal in future. Checked with the MGP store for the part number that leoshashi provided but that was unavailable. The SA at the FNG then suggested to use a part from Maruti Van as below.


Hi Parag, I'm also looking to replace the battery terminals in 2007 Maruti Alto. Could you please guide me with respect to the part number and the parts to buy for the same? TIA!
