ODO: 1,25,xxx km
A few days ago, we had a longish drive planned and was checking the fluid levels prior to that. Found the coolant level in the reservoir slightly below the min mark and I suspected some minor leak somewhere.
Also ‘Scorp’ had covered some good 6k kms since the previous service, thought of sending it for a check-up and engine oil + filters [both air and diesel] change, suspension check etc.
There was a slight leak at one of the hoses for the drop in the coolant level. All four stab bar bushes changed. They also found a wheel cylinder at the rear brake had developed a leak which was also changed.
Total damage : Rs. 12,400
Back from a 1000km trip with my 10 month old baby girl : Palakkad- Trichy-velankanni-Trichy [stayed at Hotel Grand gardenia] –Theni- Rajakkad/Munnar [ home] – Kothamangalam- Perumbavur- Thrissur-Palakkad.
An extremely pleasant trip with Scorp at its very best once again.
