hi,
i have swift vxi from nov 2010, it has done 6500 km , recently 2 months ago before it crossed 5000k mark problems started,

1] while driving suddenly i felt a bit loss of power from engine , and steering felt like uneven for some time, i ignored, after it was felt for fraction of second but always there , once while in city traffic driving, i felt complete loss of power for few seconds, i felt as if petrol is over , when i took it side of road it was ok .


now after 6000k mark , now other problems started ,

engine is getting rough, first it was like butter.

squeeks from inside cabin,

suspension is getting harder,

handling , i dont know whats wrong with it some days its handles like sports car and some days its crappy with jk tyres.


engine noise is getting louder.

steering sometimes is hard .sometimes smooth.

i have always done regular servicing , even changed engine oil at last service even when not required. i never mismatch petrol its from hp. the engine problems really scares me a lot.
i really don't trust the service guys, because its difficult to explain them.

thanks.

Re: Swift Vxi Problems after 5000 km

did you get the oil changed from the service center ?
the engine problem is really odd. have you get the fuel injectors cleaned ? and do ask the guys to check the fuel filter as well.

and for the handling , just check all the tyres if they are alright or not and get the tyres aligned and balanced. you should do this every time during the service. its not necessary to do the trye things fro the service center. do it at any normal shop.

maybe because of impurities , fuel filter , injectors are clogged ? and the engine doesn't gets proper fuel.

Get the engine oil flushed and then add premium engine oil may be you will end up paying fortune compared to normal ones you use
change the
fuel filter
oil filter
air filter
clean the injectors
Install Platinum Spark plugs
Check if throttle body has been clogged , get that cleaned too.
Change the brake fluid to
Squeeky sounds can be from the cheap quality plastic didn't get tied properly

Too Cold and Too Hot = yes!

My car gets a problem with the start up sometimes because the temperature in the night goes to 4 Degrees and the sensor sometimes doesn't read the correct values and I have to do a long startup

Too hot is a problem , you might get the short startup but then more chances of engine temp going too high. other than that small differences like tyres get sticky etc etc

normally , the things which i and jaydev mentioned have to be cleaned after 30000km , i forgot the time period.

but you have to get it all checked. no other solution.

Hi Sam - Have been following this thread. Did you get an opportunity to check all that codename47 had mentioned? Hows the car doing now?
