Dear SirI am awaiting a Swift LDi. I had posted the same query few days back. Guess it got misplaced. I would like to install a stereo set, a front power windows and central locking on the swift diesel. Should I get it done at the dealer itself? Is it OK if I get it done at a reliable car accessory shop? One more doubt- Is it necessary that i get the power windows and central locking fixed of the same company itself? Would it matter If it is of different companies.
Reply: Hi....sorry for the delay in replying...its better to have it fixed at the dealer point. Sinc its a new car if u do it outside they u might loose warrenty if the cut the wires.Or else the car accessory wala should be combetent to use approprate sockets and plugs so that he does not tamper the wiring, Regarding power windows and central locking it need not be the same company...but if it is the same company both will have some common functions ..like if the dors are closed and ign is off atomaticly the glasses will roll and close.

Hi Jibu, I've booked Swift DZire VDI beige colour. I've been suggested by many that its better to change tyre 165/80 to 185/70 and if possible go for alloys. Will the change in tyres be costly and how costly is alloys? Is it better to do from maruti or outside?Any comments about the colour? The colours shown in net and brochures are entirely different than real colours.
Reply: its a very good choice and gud colour too...if the tyre size is big it gives more road grip mileage reduces a little. very very The cost for good alloy per piece will be rs 3000 to 5000. to exchange price for old tyre will be approx rs 1000 and the cost of new tyre will be around rs 4000. u have to change atleast 4 nos.fixing u can do anywere.

The number of diesel cars is insignificant in the developed countries and almost non existant in the gulf countries. Then why are people going after diesel cars in India? If subsidy is removed which will be sometime in the near future,diesel and petrol cost the same.Dr.Thomas M.DavidDammam
Reply: Dear Dr. the said developed countried pertol and diesel prices are almost the same...and petrol endines got so many adv tahn diesel engs. From June 2002 till Feb 2008 % increase in petrol prices in rupees 52.04% % increase in diesel prices in rupees 74.82% % increase in crude oil prices in dollars 316.05% % increase in rupee compared to the dollar -19.34% Crude oil prices have increase by 316% from 2002. The price rise has not been passed on to the Indian consumers. For them the price of petrol has increased by 52.04% where the price of diesel has increased by 74.82%. The subsidy burden is borne up by ONGC, GAIL, HPCL, BPCL and the Govt of India. Passing on the increase in crude prices on to the Indian consumer will lead to rise in inflation and a lower economic growth rate. It will also lead to lower tax collection but the subsidy burden of the government will also reduce. Increasing the petrol and diesel prices will have the following effects 1. Increase in inflation as transport will become expensive which will increase prices of all goods 2. Decrease in growth rate due to higher inflation 3. Decrease in government subsidy 4. Decrease in income tax as the expenditure of the government on the subsidy will be reduced and higher dividend from oil and gas companies 5. Investment in alternate energy sources like solar, wind and renewed focus on ethanol blending By not increasing the price of petrol and diesel in line with crude oil prices the effects are 1. Inflation is under control 2. Increase in economic growth as the government is subsidizing transport cost of goods 3. Increase in government subsidy 4. Inability to reduce taxes as any increase in tax collection is used to subsidize the petrol and diesel cost 5. Lesser funds available for public services By keeping petrol and diesel prices low the increase in tax collection due to higher economic growth should help offset some of the subsidy burden. The Govt is using tax money paid by a few to subsidize the cost for all.

What is the use of decompression lever in bullet..? Is it needed in petrol as well as diesel fueled bullets...?What is the concept behind maintaining ammeter reading in bullet...?
Reply: We use the decompression lever to ease the piston past TDC on compression. When the kick started. Yes needed for both versions. To start the engine we have to fin the find top dead center on the compression stroke , this is easily done just by closing the compression release , pushing the kick start lever down until feeling resistance . One only needs to apply the compression release momentarily to advance the kick start lever a little farther . This is the same as using the ammeter which serves as a TDC indicator

Reply: normally we are bound to pay the price prevailing at the time of delivery. but if the car is invoiced in the old price we can pay that...but if the car is out of stock you are liable to pay only an advance which the company will fix..once the car comes u have to pay the balance amount.If u have paid the full amount normally they will give an intrest..maruti recently announced 12% for dZire booking.

Reply: Two stroke engine fires on every revolution of the crankshaft, BUT A 4 four stroke engine fires on every 2 rotations of the crank shaft so a two stroke engine is usually more powerful than a four stroke engine of equivalent size or in other words two stroke engine is twice powerful than a 4 stroke engine of same capacity but all depends upon the design aspects.

Sir,I have an Indica V2 DLS, 2003 model that has run 1,46,000 kilometers until now. The engine's performance was poor but okay, until last week the engine stopped functioning in the middle of a journey. Since we were on the road, we had to seek the help of a local mechanic who somehow managed to crank the engine to take it to the service center. After inspection the service people informed us that the fan was nonfunctioning and hence the engine got heated up and damamged, and they suggested to go for an engine over-roll. Since the car is old and has run a considerable distance, we were about to sell the car. What is your take on this? Would you suggest some maintanence work for the engine or an engine over-roll, and if so, which is the best place in South India to get a reliable over-rolling? Or is it possible to buy a brand new engine from Tata and fit it to the car instead? Please advice.Thank you, Regards,Dr. Rajesh
Reply: if u are planning to use the car then repair it or else pl sell it in as is where is condition...or u can do minor repairs like changing the piston rings etc....

pls tell me the meaning of turbo lag
Reply: The reverse flow of the turbo acts on the compressor wheel and causes the turbine shaft to reduce in speed quicker than it would reduice naturally. When the throttle is opened again, the turbo will take longer time to achieve the required speed. This is known as Turbo Lag. In order to prevent this from happening, a valve is fitted between the turbo and inlet which vents off the excess air pressure.

Reply: dear vipin. we cannot give whole lecture notes thro this ..ill give u some links which will be helpful to you...http://gcep.stanford.edu/pdfs/ib0KJnIw5S-8G1RS8EqnPg/bowman_tech05web.pdf VVTi technology utilises a sophisticated computer to vary the air intake valve timing according to driving conditions and engine load. By adjusting the overlap time between the exhaust valve closing and intake valve opening, the engine characteristics can be changed to provide instant engine torque across the entire rev range. This gives the best of both worlds: Powerful acceleration and superior fuel economy. In addition, more complete fuel burn at a higher combustion temperatures leads to fewer emissions.

Reply: For an automobile which its cylinder capacity is not over 2,400 cc. (total import duty is 136.48% of CIF value which are import duty of 42%, excise tax of 32.5%, municipal tax of 10% (of excise tax), and VAT of 10%) Method of Calculation 1. The CIF of the automobile(supposed) = 100 Baht 2. Import duty is 42% of CIF = 100*42% = 42 3. Excise tax = 32.5% (of excise tax base) Excise Tax Base = (CIF value + import duty + excise tax + municipal tax) Excise tax = (CIF value + import duty + excise tax + municipal tax) *32.5% = (CIF + import duty) *{{32.5% / 1-(1.1*32.5%)}] = (100+42) * 0.5058366 = 71.83 Baht 4. Municipal Tax = 10% of excise tax = 7.183 Baht 5. VAT =10% of VAT base =(CIF value + import duty + excise tax + municipal tax )*10% = (100+42+71.83+7.18)*10% = 22.101 Baht 6. Total Duties of the car consisting of 2+3+4+5= 143.114 Baht. (which is 143.114% of CIF value.)

I drive a Ford Fiesta. Sometime back it had a gas leak issue with the AC which was corrected. But since then there seems to be a foul smell in the car which sometimes causes soffocation and much discomfort. I have tried to keep away the odour by regulating the outside air and by using different car perfumes. But nothing seems to work. I even had the car checked by AC mechanics a couple of times. Used a Neutralizer spray from Gulf Oil and a couple of other products which others suggested. Still the smell persists. Can you please suggest any other effective solution to this problem?
Reply: first we have to find out the origin of the smell..ac gas dosent have any smell..a probable cause is that the outside air vent is always open and if its a petrol vehicle it will give a foul smell from the exhaust mainly when it is reversed to a climb...solution is to correct the functioning of the outsde air vent and to ck the air tightness of the doors and glases..

Hi GibuYour replies are always encouraging and informative.Thanks..The Indian fuel is infamous in quality. Specifically speaking,most of the fuel stations sells adulterated fuel irrespective of petrol or diesel or who sells what...A lot of feedbacks, I personally come to understand that kerosene is mixed especially in fuel stations throughout Kerala. Is this true?? If so, does'nt it affect the vehicles? Or are the cars able to withstand substandard fuel?? How could someone test one is selling quality fuel?? Your feedback will be much appreciated.
Reply: Dear sir, Earlier we used to get adulterated fuel..ie fuel mixed with kerosine..now its not that easy..main thing is availability of kerosine and its colour...if it use adulterated fuel it will definitely damage ur engine for checking there is density chart available in pumps also u can ck the density of the fuel there and compare with the chart. The dencity of the fuel supplied will b noted in the oil company bill. Moreover from the central government there are surprise cks in which they can find adulteration if one litre is mixed in 4000 liters

how parking sensor working
Reply: Parking Sensors will detect obstacles behind you to aid your parking and enable you to get into those tight spots without damaging your car. Using Ultrasonic technology they emit a cone of sound behind your car which bounces of obstables behind and returns to the sensor, the time taken for these sound waves to bounce and return off obstructions behind your car calculates the distance to the obstacle behind the car.

Reply: when the engine is hot the coolent expands and the reservetank will be full but when it is cool down the level will go down in the reservoir but the nothing will happen in the raditor. Pl ck the enging oil for traces of coolent..if ok give the radiator for a pressure test there might be very small holes where we cannot see the leakeage once its hot it will get evaporated..this can be clarifies by a pressure test.

Hi,I am planing to put alloys in my Swift Lxi vehicle. Could you please suggest me the preferable size of the alloys and the tires? Regards,Bijoy
Reply: either u can put 185/70 R 14 or a low profile tyre with 15 inch alloy lighter alloys and wider grip won't do much harm .Go for 185/65 R14 . If you want bigger alloys then 195/50R15 but 15" is not recommanded as it will eat up your tyre wall .

I own a 2001 Santro LS which has run around 45000 kms.I find the gear shift from 1st to 2nd and 3rd to second a little hard.It does not slot smoothly into the second gear.Also I am not able to shift down into first from second gear when the vehicle is moving .Only when i come to a complete stop , i can slot it down into first gear.This forces me to drive in 2nd gear even when i slow down to a crawl.What do you think the possible problems are ?I showed it at a dealer workshop and they did some smoothening of the gear lever, but it didn't improve.Now they are suggesting changing the gear rod ( i am not sure what that is ? )Your thoughts on this would be helpful.ThanksAby

what is mean by overdrive
Reply: Generally overdrive (OD) is the highest gear in the transmission.Also an overdrive is a device which was commonly used on rear-wheel drive automobiles to allow the choice of an extra-high overall gear ratio for high speed cruising, thus saving fuel, at the cost of less torque......It also refers to a combination of gearing inside a transmission or transaxle which results in the output speed being greater than the input speed.

I have a 2001MPFI esteem.While cold starting it shows low RPM (500)for about two minutes and there is vibration too.But while running the minimum RPM is 1300 (when applying clutch).This broblem started some two months back. My car has a subwoofer fitted in it.Is it harmful to the car to fit a subwoofer taking a direct connection from the battery?Looking forward to your reply.
Reply: normally in 500 rpm the engine will stop...Subwoofer connection directly from battery is not aproblem to the car but when heavy bass sound is played the amp wont get the exat current this may lead the amp power to be tripped. If you don't get sufficient energy for your powerful car audio systems. The car audio capacitors are specifically designed to address the demands of car audio or music systems during extreme power consumption. The car audio capacitors work to store the power the amplifiers need to operate the super-bass audio music systems you have in your car.

Reply: Earlier in old cars we use to do it. in modern cars u don't have to but for vehicles with turbo it is good to keep the vehicle idle for atleast 30 sec before turning off the ign. we need to give some time for the turbo to stop...but just imagine u stopping suddenly after running 100mts for accuring normal heartbeat we will walk a little. This can be applied to vehicles also turn off ign after a few sec.no need of raising the engine.

Hi,My Palio 1.2 Petrol completed 52000 Km, nowadays is shaking too much on bad roads. Severe vibrations can be felt all over the body when driven fast through bad roads. The front and back throws too much on riding over bumps. Is that because of a weak strut? Do I need to replace the Coil Spring and Rubber mountings while replacing the Strut? Some clunking sounds also arise from the front right suspension area? Please advice.
