    ABRO flush is for diesel fuel and is put in the fuel tank.

    Badhral is engine oil flush that is put in the engine compartment to clean the oil passages of carbon and other deposits.
    Both are for totally different purposes. But what Sat was trying to say is , both these solutions cost roughly the same and i concur with Sat, I remember buying bahradl for about 230 or so not too long ago.

    I'm going in for another oil change shortly i can definitively tell you when i perform a flush this time.

    Oh, bad day.
    How much time it took for RSA to send vehicle?

    If it were "Fuel-tank empty" issue, there is very prominent alarm of "Check Engine". Also the "Fuel tank" alarm goes "Orange". I have been through all this once. If that didn't flash, issue is somewhere else than "battery or fuel tank empty".

    Timing chain cut has been identified!

    Its going to be covered under extended warranty and will take atleast couple of days! they need to open everything first and send all the photos of claimed part for EW approval. Good thing is that part is in stock.
    Reason for this is unknown as of now!

    RSA took around 1 hour to reach. another 10 minutes to load the car. They were going to tow the car to aadya motors since that was the nearest SC from the breakdown spot. i insisted to take the car to kht to which the RSA guy agreed and said i need to pay the towing charges for extra no of kms which would be 25rs/kmpl. had to pay only 75 rs.
