    Have your brakes checked especially the rear ones for binding visually inspect the four front brake pads by removing the tyres.
    And also see that the air filter cover is sealing the filter gasket completely and not allowing air to escape or to breath air.
    Bleed the fuel filter can be done at home, open the bleed screw on top of filter, connect a small pipe and collect fuel in a bottle. Turn the Key to MAR (don't crank the engine)
    Check the Engine Oil Level ( It should not be above MAX level on a cold engine) Was engine oil topped up in your car by you or TASS or any-other person at any point of time.
    Get the Intercooler cleaned check for oil presence in intercooler (small amount is normal).
    Also check the intercooler for any leak, flying stones can sometimes develops small holes which leak air.
    Clean the MAF Sensor (By using Electrical point cleaner available at all electronics shops, if you can't find one use the CD Lens cleaner fluid and let the MAF dry completely before putting it back)

  7. Hey Guys,

    past few days, I have been driving my car as hard as i can, means I am pushing it almost to extreme on all gears. 2nd gear goes upto 3000rpm, 3rd goes upto 3100rpm and so on! but i feel a lot better now...can i go the way like this? will this make some effect in the car engine? should i reduce the style? I never had driven my car like this, usually shift gears when i reach 2000rpm! but Well now i know how drive @ drag race :p

    Dude, this is absolutely fine. Infact, I would recommend you to do this atleast once a day.

    You should be observing that the car is not sluggish anymore in the first and second gears correct? They should pull through clearly..

    It would be absolutely fine if you do it after the engine has warmed up sufficiently and not during cold starts. I rev my car up to 4K at least twice a week and the engine has considerably freed up. So don't worry and just enjoy the car.
