    Since you are careful driver, I assume there won't be clutch plate issue. !!!
    Visit your mechanic and have it checked for clutch wire setting

    sir your recommendations are incorrect
    oil viscosity does not need to be changed in summer or winter, this is not 1978 , and neither is this northern europe or russia.
    sf410 used SAE API SN/SM 10w -40. that is enough for entire pakistani weather whether punjab or gilgilt. changing viscosity is useless and may cause damage
    brake oil DEFINTELY needs to be changed every 50,000 kms
    LLC coolant or pyro is just fine, and DK coolant is also A- OK
    LLC korea is about 285-295 per 500 ml
    for steering there is an adjustment at the bottom, if there is a fault no kharadiya will be able to solve it perfectly, the steering assembly should be replaced. if no fault - AFTER CHECKING it with kharadiya THEN adjust the steering tightness from bottom provided nut.
    cultus steering is anyways light and should be light

    I believe it is the right time to do so.
    Few months ago i changed gear oil with ZIC Gear FF 75W/85 (API GL-4). Good experience so far.
    Make sure u pour 2.5 litres not more or less than that

    dear you sound like a novice as u said urself. i m a do it myself guy and have more than 10 years experience with just suzukis. currently i own a bumper to bumper new vxl 2010 , just 38,000 driven.
    i am afraif i do not agree with Margallar at all- the advise in good but not correct/best
    here are your answers.

    ENGINE OIL: USE MOBIL SUPER 2000 10w 40 API SN . It is expensive but best. do not use ZIC. Zic is primaliry just a workshop promotion oil. many users and some labs claim zic will shorten ur long life of engine. Either Use Mobil super 2000 or if u can't afford then REPSOL or Shell 10w 40. do NOT USE 10W 30. USE THE MOBIL OIL FOR 5,500 KMS AND OTHER SHELL OR TOTAL FOR 4,500 KMS.

    COOLANT: READ UR CARS MANUAL. CHANGE IT AT 40,000 - DO NOT USE WATER IN ANY CAR. IF U ADD WATER ALWAYS ADD AGS BATTERY WATER. USE SUZUKI GENUINE COOLANT ONLY. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO DO IT URSELF IF U DONT KNOW HOW MUCH TO PUT OR MIX. TAKE IT TO AUTHORIZED DEALER AND GET IT DONE. IT IS JUST ABOUT 1,100 RS.

    GEAR OIL: 40,000: USE GENUINE SUZUKI GEAR OIL.
    BRAKE OIL: 50,000 : CHANGE IT. DOT 3 ONLY. AGAIN IF U CAN AFFORD PUT LIQUI MOLY (GERMAN) OR THEN GUARD

    BRAKES: ONLY USE GENUINE SUZUKI BRAKES FROM AUTHORIZED DEALER. DEPENDS ON WEAR AND TEAR, UR DRIVING STYLE. SO GER BRAKES INSPECTED BY AUTHORIZED DEALER. IF U R FROM LAHORE, TAKE THEM TO SUZUKI TOWNSHIP MOTORS. YOU CAN CONTACT MR. ADEEL THERE SERVICE MANAGER
    GENERALLY SPEAKING . FRONT DISCS @ 35000-40000 KMS AND ALMOST SAME FOR BRAKE SHOES.
    BRAKE SERVICE INTERAL: 5000-6000 KMS. (DO IT EVERY OIL CHANGE)

    STEERING: A NEW CAR WITH LOW MILEAGE SHOULD NOT HAVE THIS PROBLEM! THERE IS AN ADJUSTMENT NUMT AT STEERING RACK, ONLY MECHANIC CAN DO IT. GET IT ADJUSTED TO LOOSER SETTING. BEFORE THAT GET UR STEERING INSPECTED.
    THIS IS STANDARD STEERING NO FLUID, ONLY RACK HAS GREESE. IF U HAVE TO GET UR STEERING REPAIRED. THEN MAKE SURE TO PUT GENUINE/ OR BRANDED HEAVY GREASE. TAKE ADVISE FROM FOREMAN WHICH ONE TO USE. AGAIN TRY TO TAKE TO AUTHORIZE DEALER ONLY

    make sure u read ur owners user manual carefully.
    keep a small diary in ur car or record in ur phone of ur vehicles maintenance.

    hope i was helpful.
    any more question, please ask!

    your question is extremely vague.
    other people's responses are non-serious@ get used to it and sounds come from suzuki.
    sounds should not come from any car.
    do not listen to these unkowledgebale ppl and non serious members.
    describe ur problem properly

    Guys i am an owner of 2000 model cultus , i maintained it well but from last couple of months i am unable to maintain due to some personal timing constraints.
    i am getting following issues with it.

    1- i recently rebuilt my car's engine (all stock) , i thought i must go for new mountings and i did that , after 2 weeks i started feeling tak tak sound and went to mechanic and swapped new taiwanese mountings , now vibration is less but i can still feel tak tak sound . any suggestions?
    2- as my car is a bit old so i am thinking if i can change the door panels, locks and i also want to upgrade my car's door to automatic mirrors and locks (suggestions please along with cost)
    3- any suggestions if i could go for the overall paint job (any good painter)
    4- i can see leakage on engine cover i don't know why (any suggestion to get rid of it)
    5- Overall pick is very good mileage is good (no upgrade is required)
    6- i bought new steering (kanghi) for my car but i can feel a bit play in it now. (suggestions + cost)
    7- i want to get a chilled AC in my car i already have installed Denso maybe AC is fine but currently its not working (a friend suggested me not to go to Punjab car AC as all experts has already left him (suggestions please)
    8- interior is good but i want to change grills (vents) as plastic life is over and i can not use elfie everytime to fix them

    thanks your suggestions are warmly welcomed

    10w 30 is a thin oil and for suzuki type of engines its even thinner , wheather conditions in pak is very hot so thin oil will be more thinner .

    true for suzuki. but honda recomends 5w 30 and toyota recomends 10w 30 in pakistan. newer engines are suitable with thinner oil.
