    Default Santro engine Overhaul experts-LIANARULES

    Salam PW's.
    My santro's engine may need to be overhauled in the coming weeks.
    Can anyone please name some well-experienced mechanics near D.H.A/Walton/Cavalry ground?
    The mechanic must be an expert in overhauling EFi engines.


    Thank you

    what is an expert in overhauling EFI engines? EFI is just a different carburation technique, And before opening the engine to bits - check the health of the engine then spend wisely to repair only what is necessary. 90% of the times its cylinder head work.

    There is a strange noise coming from the engine like 'Tuk tuk tuk' continuously,it disappear's once the car is moving or is reved and reappears when the foot is taken of the accelerator.
    Can you please help me identify the problem?
    A mechanic told me that one of the piston is bent thus the noise comes

    If your piston were bent, you would have a dead engine, if the conrod were bent you would have an extremely noisy 3 cyl engine as the 4th would not fire correctly.

    Ticking is usually head work required, the rocker shaft or one arm of the exhaust rockers must have fractured. Lower block noise is never a tick, its more of a deep rumble with high frequency as the crank rpm is double the cam rpm.

    So basically it's head work?
    Like I would need to change the rings and all.

    head work means valves,guides,seals etc etc etc head facing.

    BTW,
    I just checked and the highlighted part is somewhat true.
    The car's engine makes wayy more noise then other santros.The throttle body is also faulty.
