Hi, Myself Sougata from Durgapur, West Bengal. I am a Proud Owner of a Maruti Zen. It is a 2005 MPFI Zen. Now it has completed 92000 KMs. I am the 2nd owner. I took it during 2014. I am planning for a overall checkup and engine maintenance. During Nov'2016 it had a overall maintenance.
But now I am facing a major problem. Whenever I am going out during a heavy rain after some time I find the floor mat is wet.
. I thought there might be some whole due to under-body rust, but that is also not possible as during 2016 I had a under-body coat to prevent rust if there is any. When I discussed the matter with my mechanic he said there may be some whole in the dash area or the engine bay from where the water is coming in and making the mat damp. He suggested to open the dash and the floor mat to look for any whole and to repaint the floor and the underbody. The job is pending. I need advice/opinion from you people.
There are some regular jobs also like Clutch plate change. So I decided to go for a overall engine maintenance. Please give your opinion for what are the matters to look after.
Few months back I had some problems with the battery back up. So I changed the Dianamo & the battery and now it is working fine.
Though it is a old car (13 years) but I love to drive it. It is my 1st car and since it is a Zen, so I am planning to keep it for another 5-7 years at least. Because still now it is quite fun and safe to drive it and go for a long way.
So I ask for your expert advice for the matters to look after during this midlife thorough maintenance.
Also after this maintenance I am planning to install Central Lock and Keyless Entry system as those are not there in the car. Please advice.
Thanks in Advance
