    Default Santro 2003 reducing oil on long drives

    aoa!
    i have a santro club 2003, i hv observed it has reduced some oil when i took a trip to rwp from peshawar and back. i didnt expect it as the engine is in really good condition, i drive normally at 140 km/h on cng on motorway and the car goes easily to 155-160 km/h on petrol. has no other issue....can anyone suggest some remedial measures???
    2ndly i have heard about sajjad motors somewhere in lahore, i have to go to lahore today n if it happens again i m thinking of getting it checked from somewhere in lahore. can anyone pls tell me the loc and/or contact number of this sajjad motors or some other good workshop for santro in lahore.
    regards

    i have a santro club 2003, i hv observed it has reduced some oil
    define SOME OIL.
    i drive normally at 140 km/h on cng on motorway and the car goes easily to 155-160 km/h on petrol.
    high speed driving may result in oil reduction. Normal acceptable reduction range is upto 1 liter per 1000 km of drive. Keep topping it up as and when oil level is reduced, but do not overfill.
    However, agar tassali na ho tau you better check for external and internal leakage before throwing money to workshops for mini or major overhauls.

    Dont check the oil just after driving when engine is hot..Allow some time to let the oil come down in the pan..Then check the oil level...Best way is to check in the morning before starting the engine
    If u have enemies---GOOD---It means u stood up for something!!!!
