Re: “My Nimble Mountain Goat”: A Dazzle Blue Tata Nano XTA (1.5 Years & 14K Kms)

That is the advantage of Gold AMC . Did you also take same for Nexon ?
+1 Anshuman for your view, AMC Gold is the icing on the cake, you pay for nothing, from wiper blades to the clutch, all fluids and filters everything is FOC.

For the Nexon, I shall be taking the 3rd and 4th year extended warranty for RS.10,800/- this month. P2P (AMC Gold) is FOC.

Thanks and regards

Re: “My Nimble Mountain Goat”: A Dazzle Blue Tata Nano XTA (1.5 Years & 14K Kms)

Hello everyone ! This is Vaishak Murugesan from Coimbatore.

I am facing an issue with my 2012 Tata Nano, for which I am seeking help from the fellow members. Since this is the only active thread of Nano, I am posting in this thread.

We purchased an used 2012 Tata Nano, run 28800kms, single owner, from a known source of ours, on July 2018. Everything was fine except for the hard clutch and bouncing suspension.Hence overhauled the clutch assembly and the clutch became very smooth to operate. But the suspension was throwing us around. Another look and the suspension was to be changed, as suggested by our FNG. With the suspension change, the ride became supple. But another issue started, which still exists.

After the suspension overhaul, there was strange noise,like the noise which arises due to the wallowy movement of liquid, at the rear right side. Now the real issue is, the vehicle idles unevenly. Also during a downshift, the vehicle would raise on its own, without my foot on the accelerator pedal.

The above uneven idling issue arises only when that strange noise from the rear exists. If the noise is not present, the vehicle behaves normally. Our FNG friend is unable to find this issue. Other than this, the little wonder, as I call it, is a joy to drive.

It has been a month and a half with this issue, with no real solution. Fellow members shall help me out to solve this issue.


P.S. Mr.Nanofreak, sorry for hijacking your thread with this long post.

Regards,
Vaishak Murugesan

Hello Vaishak, you are most welcome to this thread, for your Nano queries.

For the uneven idling, put it on the OBD computer from TASS, I'm sure I'll throw up errors get these cleared, and then take a call.

Did you get suspension change done at all 4 corners? As the rear struts are quite prone to oil leaks, get these also checked at TASS.

Hope this helps.

Thank You for your reply Sir.
1. Yes, I am planning to take it to the TASS for the OBD scanner treatment after November 22nd as I have my exams going on currently.
2. Yes Sir, the suspension was changed on all the four corners. Will surely take a note of this.

Thank You Sir,

This automatic acceleration Once happened with my nano too, but it got solved too automatically. I have been regularly servicing at TAFE Service and Mr. Albert has been doing a great job of keeping proper check. I asked them to check and recently got a weird drive shaft sound rectified along with that. Everything's as good as new even after 14K kms. You can try the experienced staff of TAFE.

Thank You for the suggestion,brother. Will be taking the car to TASS, once my exams are over. Any idea of why the car accelerates automatically?

MALFUNCTIONING REVERSE CAMERA
Since a couple of months the Amazon bought reversing camera was not functioning, however the monitor was switching on, and would go off while driving.
Thought being a Chinese product, the camera might have konked off.
Today I took the Nano to my accessories guy, he checked all the wiring, from the monitor to the camera attached on the bumper, the culprit was a short wire between the camera and the reverse light plug, fixed it, Bingo works as a charm, paid 150.
Happy days.
