    Hi all,
    We finally found out the issue, the car is overheating since the oil circulation is not proper.. its popping out the oil indicator. Once the car is pushed to 1.5 rpm then it goes off.. so causing over heating and all.. mechanic is checking the main shaft.. he thinks that there may be problem in that... anyone by chance tell me what is the cost of the main shaft...

    If the oil is thinning, then use 20W-40. It will be more viscous in its operating range.

    Hi abdul ,
    We checked all possible ways and a technitian in ramkay fiat told us it might be due to a faulty oil filter.. in the oil filtwr unit where the oil filter is fitted there is a valve .. with a spring mechanism.. if the spring is not fully pressed the valvr will not open it seems leading to less oil circulation. He asked us to change the oil filter with the OEM part.. tht we purchased from thm.. so as the problem is fixed.. originally.. the old mechanic altered the oil filter of swift.. so created a lot of issues
