    Amar what do you mean by re-stickable? You dont need to buy a new sticker after waxing or washing and how many times you will repaint your car.

    Don't do engine flush etc. Only tasks which are mentioned backside of service coupons. Modern engines do not need any 'Desi' remedies. These types of 'desi' tricks may be harmful. Because when you flush the engine thin film of engine oil disppear & because of extensive flush you have to be careful at the time of refilling engine oil.In normal oil change we don't make any flushes. So little qty.of old engine oil remains in the engine which is useful.After flushing you will have to put 3.5 ltrs. engine oil to match the level of dipstick.After engine flush if a absent minded TATA guy put 3.2 Ltrs oil then engine may face low oil level.

    Can anybody confirm whether putting 3.2 liter engine oil lead to low engine oil levels (i.e. oil level below minimum mark on dipstick) instead of 3.5 liter after engine flushing?

    As per my info engine flush means to wash out existance of old engine oil.So after flushing, there is not a single drop of oil. That's why after flushing 3.5 ltrs is necessary. FIAT has mentioned in the service manual also.This thing is mentioned in manual of Pulsar 220 also. Regular oil change is 1100 ml.At engine overhaul / first time oil refilling oil capacity is 1200 ml.

    Mods Note - Do not use insensitive comparisons in posts. Thanks.

    Yashik bai ji, just put in 3.2 litres. If needed top up later on. It's easier to add oil than to remove excess of it ! :)

    Cheers.

    Precisely. Moreover, in my experience, the volume of oil between max and minimum oil levels at dipstick is around 500ml (at least), not just 300ml.

    Even our old M800 has 350-400ml oil between max and minimum. It looses around 250ml every month and we never see any low oil warning.
