My Santro (120k Mileage) heats up (more than half temp needle keeps on increasing and then I stop the car) and builds more water pressure. I have consulted few mechanics and they are advising for an engine over haul (which I think is a bull-crap).
Hyundai Township (big-time uneducated thieves), told me to change Rings+Head gasket+engine overhaul and the price was Rs.68k.
It gets noisy like an accelerated engine noise when gets heat and loses water in radiator (no water leakage at all), eventually becomes quiet upon pouring water, while car is in on state. It seems to me a head gasket problem rather than anything else. I am planning to replace head gasket and get its face leveled. If required I can accept replacement of seals or any weakened water pipes.
Labor = 2000
Head Gasket = 1200
Leveling of gasket = 200
Seals = 800
Some other parts = 1800
Total they quote me is = Rs.6000
Any suggestions will be appreciated.
