Maruti 800, Fuel-air ratio screw

My Maruti 800 1996 carb model.[frustration]

Recently my technician cleaned the carburator and tried to tune-up the engine.

Spark plugs cleaned, fuel filter & air filter replaced, CB point gap set to 0.4mm and the Ignition timing set to 7 deg as per specification.

While adjusting the fuel-air ratio screw, the change of RPM could not be noticed so to get to the maximum RPM, he took a lot of time.

What can be the reason?[frustration]

For rear power windows alone, I was charged 7k for MINDA brand. I guess they have charged me more...[cry]

The Universal power window module doesn't require any modification as other branded ones require more mod's like the entire roller module is to removed.. So these are bit costly..

Here the advantage of the Universal power windows are, even if it stops working just fix back the roller handle you are done.

In case of branded ones, need to either repair the module or replace it..

Replace the speedo meter cable..

Check with duo pont paint you will get all shades from Maruti.

You can use zip tags to tie them, Please post a pic so that we can guide you..

Also post the pic of the bumper where its not fitting properly..

Sorry I have no idea in insurance..

Modifying - Just a set of alloy wheels, K & n air filter.. ice etc..

Re: Maruti 800: Technical Issues and Solutions

Today, while driving a very strange thing happened.

While I was driving a Scorpio in front of me jammed his brakes, so even I instantly jammed mine to stop the car. After that it felt like my axle had come loose. The car started giving me the same noise like the noise I heard when my front axle needed to be changed. The rattle that comes from under the driver's seat. I kept noticing that the rattle kept getting louder and I was getting worried while driving because I had only recently got the axles changed from Solar Automobiles.

As i was driving, a two wheeler suddenly crossed in front of me at a junction so i braked a little hard and to my surprise there was no longer a rattle. So what caused this rattle? It certainly felt like the axle. I want to know what could have happened.

Inspect your car's front cross member, mine too was rattling and found that it was cut (it will be welded to the chassis). It will be due to rust..

Next thing is as you said its the axle / lower arm..
