  1. @bhavneet good to know that the problem got resolved. By The Way what exactly wrong with the left axle? Bad ball bearing or shocker?
  2. Looking to buy CIAZ

    @Alisha Hessle Ciaz not even close to any premium car. Only hybrid feature is regenerative braking. During driving battery charges adequately. Rest of the points mentioned by you for Ciaz are noteworthy.
  3. Pics of Modified cars in INDIA

    Still not suitable for off roading as clutch assembly is sealed against water ingress.
  4. Initially I told it's not engine mounting problem, well! You just confirmed that it was mounting problem. My Bad! Once the oil based engine mounting is renewed update us all if the vibration problem solved?
  5. @Chetan Vaddoriya if your car was already in operation as you said, and then car stopped then it is not due to hydrostatic lock instead it broke due to manufacturing fault as the CR in question must be having a hairline crack which broke completely in running.

    Looks good with LEDs
  7. Small Car with best safety features

    Wagon R(CNG) won't work as one can't stand for hours in queue for CNG. Otherwise Wagon R is good.
  8. advice in buying tyre pressure gauge

    @MrNams Michelin is a good brand. I am using coido analogue pressure gauge, its pressure holding knob is leaking but working satisfactorily. The tyre compressor I am using is good one,"Bushranger". Welcome! to the autocar forum.
  9. US Historic Route 66

    @Lala De saw all the videos, great effort and we too just completed Route 66 along with you. By watching your HD videos.
  10. 2 Lakhs Kms Swift VDi

    @Devendrasinh surve diesel car, you are lucky to get above fuel average. Ideally you should get the complete overhaul of the Turbo that is renewal of the bush bearings, thrust pads, seal rings, O-rings etc, cleaning of its turbine blades, volute casing & the nozzle ring. Also EGR mentioned by you. If intercooler is there then get it decarbonised too. Renew rubber reinforced hoses in and out of the intercooler. The list is not limited to what I have mentioned. The catalytic converter too, to be unclogged.?
  11. @manav.m hi!there, the answer is there in your posted link, get it via or and some of the suppliers post them to other countries if you are ready to pay the import charges. But the Rockville bass tube in also available in Indian Amazon though the cost is high 35,000₹.
  12. @Chetan Vaddoriya the carbon lining? Never heard of this term. The hydrolock damage can happen due to any liquid left above piston or left inside the combustion space(as liquids are incompressible) be it fuel, lube oil or coolant. The connecting rod(CR) can bend or even break due to fault in the CR during manufacturing process. Now a days all the parts are outsourced, a corrupt quality control officer won't reject it. When did you notice the damage that is when you cranked the engine in the morning?

    Honda is not even close to Jetta, though sure can compete with Octavia

  15. FIgo Tdci 2012 Long term review

    @Narasimha your review of the Figo car isn't technical. When you drive your car do you keep your left hand on the gear knob, most of the time ?

    @librankur full black looks classy
  17. High Pressure Washer

    @Nataliaroger In India Sun Joe brand is alien. We have Black and Decker High pressure machine in our housing society, which I happen to repair, works fine. has 1000plus reviews with 4.5star ratings for the model you mentioned. So it must be good.
  18. @bhavneet I really don't know the cost but needle and guide in a injector would cost 2500₹ each. Still not sure of its cost. Single injector costs around 5000₹. Check the disposable filter, diesel pump's suction strainer(location:in the tank) and the peak pressures. If peak pressures are fine then no need to touch the injectors. Keep us all updated with your troubleshooting.
  19. The Gadgets and Gizmos thread!

  20. @bhavneet this forum is not happening forum like teambhp. Well! Coming back to your ride. It's not the engine mounting problem. Get the diesel filter(disposable one) renewed and the diesel pump has a strainer, in the fuel tank, to be inspected and get it cleaned. Inspect the air filter and clean it, refer any YouTube video for that. Problem with the diesel car is that if any of the fuel injector under-performs the vibration issue will start. Can you ask some service guy to check the peak pressure(bar) of each cylinder, all the four readings should be nearly same, if value of any one is less than the average value by 5 bar then that fuel injector needs overhauling, this last step is extreme. The problem would either be clogged air filter or clogged fuel filters. keep us updated.
