Got the car serviced at 52500kms. Total paid 6940rs.

There was some sound coming from the left side over potholes. Didn't know they will charge 1250rs labor for that small part. I think they deliberately attached the wrong labor amount for the 4th item.

As far as I saw on YouTube videos changing that particular mount isn't that time consuming as changing both the arms. Am i right ?
I got the car delivered at home so couldn't get an explanation from the adviser. Please suggest.

Also they changed the driver side mirrors switch for some reason. Advisor told me that some window was not operating with the switch so they changed the switch under warranty. I just think that they will just sell off the part in the market by showing it was fixed in my car.

Also got the car dry cleaned and polished using the coupons they gave me the previous time.

I am currently in LEH.
Car performed without any problems with two people on board.
Towards the end of moore plains(4800 meters height) I stopped for 5 minutes and when I started the car I felt a judder from the engine.
At tanglan la pass ( 5300 meters) I again stopped for 5 minutes and when I started the car , the engine started juddering vigorously. I pressed the accelerator and there was no power , I saw lots of bluish white smoke coming from the exhaust. This happened for about thirty seconds.
I reached leh after this without any problem (no unusual smoke, no power loss) but with loads of tension on my mind.
It was all downhill from that pass.

I visited the maruti service centre and they didn't have any solutions to this. They just kept on insisting to change the fuel filter , clean the air filter and the intercooler. According to them my car is not accelerating on steep slopes but i didnt have any problem going uphill.

My FNG mechanic told me it's because of low air density and low oxygen levels and the sensors got confused or didnt get good amount of air when I started the car again.

I am ok with them changing the filters but should I tell them to clean the intercooler too ?
I am confused because they didnt seem to know much.
99% i am not letting them open the intercooler.

A lot of times the ECU is not calibrated for extreme atmospheric parameters. This is a firmware issue rather than hardware. A lot of cars will throw Check engine lights at higher attitudes but continue to function properly. I with manufacturers did better homework and the EMS has proper software profiles to deal will all kinds of situations. (Eg Low oxygen)

@VISHNUCARCRAZY - leh maruti ass suggested me to clean the intercooler.

@bhvm - you are correct. A hotel neighbour told me the same thing that his Isuzu have a check engine light and when he contacted the company they said it's normal and it will go away as you go down.

Anyways I just got the air filter cleaned and I didn't turn off the car on higher altitudes and car didn't give me any trouble.

Although car behaved the same at higher altitudes - giving less power sometimes but it didn't stop anywhere.
