    RSinfo - dead weight is 'dead' weight , a cng cylinder will help reduce fuel bills and also the 'thud' reason too ... I mentioned about it just casually ...

    warranties are as usual strange things . they are always limited to support manufacturing defects if any.
    in case of failure of engine due to adulterated fuel,tuning box , turbo damage et al will not be entertained .
    in most of the cases warranties are just cover up .
    in general we end up paying double the price of the product in the name of warranty.

    May be warranty is just a cover up. But, just think how much you would have to shell out from your pocket if you had to replace the AC and the clutch parts on your own. Warranty is for the product as supplied by the manufacturer and not for what you do on it (modifications to standard fittings).

    i am facing a strange problem after the retro fit.
    the gears have become a bit stiff now while driving,no problems when is car is turned off...its smooth like butter.
    installer said it has nothin to do withh cng fitment,rather to do with the slave cylinder.he told me to pump the clutch while putting the first gear and it helps
    what cud it be?

    my car was recalled and the slave cylinder was replaced under warranty around 4-5 months back.

    Just check the invoice , if the cylinder[csc] changed is a steel one or not ....
    U can confirm it from a workshop too ...

    wont the people at TASS complain that you are running on cng and that is the cause of this problem. they are very lazy to complete the works properly

    or try talking to your installer of this cng kit and tell him to remove it and that it can be fitted after the csc issue is solved.
    first find out if you have the steel csc or not..
