today i went to tuning of my car. it was an ex-suzuki person and had training in Japan too (pictures were framed in his shop). he scanned my car, and did throttle service+plug gap/cleaning+coils cleaning&taping+air intake cleaning+emulator setting. the scan code was P0135 and no other code, in a nut shell he said that your car is Mashallah in best of engine health, and for a zero meter car experience just change its coils and the car will be as new as a showroom zero meter. as per his detailed inspection, all sensors are properly functioning, electronics are all good, absolutely no mechanical work needed in engine. but he recommended me Total engine oil 20/50 as engine is old now. endorsed the idea of direct fan and no t-stat.
i have seen inside of my engine thrice (each time the gasket was gone). i never saw traces of abnormal sludge, debris,, infact just a proper oiled parts. i believe its just because i have always strived to use genuine original oils from reputed vendors. a 'jaali' fake oil really ruins an engine
Experts here would agree with me when I say that it's better to change the oil BEFORE touching the maximum mileage limit claimed by the oil manufacturer. E.g., if the maximum mileage of a certain oil is claimed to be 5000 Km by its manufacturer, i'd change that every 3500 Km, or 4000 Km at max. Better safe than sorry.
Btw, I have been recommended by a lot of "ustaads" by now to switch the current 5W40 of my Liana RXI with 20W50 for better mileage & engine protection. And then people say that Liana is a very troublesome car. These morons do not even know that "spark plug heat rating kis chirya ka naam hai".
@Xulfiqar, bro have you ever played around with the code extraction from ECU and making changes at assembly level? I am thinking of disabling my car's immobilizer because my immobilizer antenna seems to have gotten weak and sometimes it doesn't recognize its own original key. I don't want to pay big bucks to Suzuki 3S for merely a bunch of new immobilizer keys.
Xulfiqar: Bro can you PM me if you have had any experiences in this? This will save me a lot of work that I would otherwise have to do if I start from scratch.
Death is not the greatest loss in life. The greatest loss is what dies inside us while we live.
