    Hi @Ganges need help/tips from you

    You can post how you maintain your car and lots of people will be helped from this (especially rookie like me)
    You can give tips on
    1.Engine maintenance ( regularly engine oil used)
    2. any additives used with diesel (what was the interval)
    3. Any particular gear box oil or any other oils used
    4. Service interval
    And so on,
    You can add more points or other members can add points.
    Pls spare some time when u r free....

    Thanks in advance mate....

    Thanks,
    Pradeep

    Hi @Pradeepms
    1. The only change which i do in the intervals of 7K Kms is Engine Oil with oil filter,its with 10W 40 grade.Used Shell Helix Ultra 5W40,Mobil Delvac1 5W40.Currrently using TOTAL 10W40.
    2. Fuel Filter change for every 30K Kms.
    3. i havent used any addititives till date.
    4. The highway drives kept my car lungs clean and neat.
    After TATA FIAT JV breakup in 2012,i stopped maintianing service intervals.Since, then doing on my own with help of local garage.The best to avoid service centres is to get educate yourselves about the car technical terms and its upto you to follow the right direction, though you have been provided with number of suggestions in the forum.I changed my TMC at 1,24,000Kms though in the forum you can see many of them have changed within 1L Kms.if i know what kind of engine oil i have used and the way i used my car in daily life ,then it will be easy for me to take decision (eventhough its late) before going into worst condition.
    Key to health of your car is Engine Oil and spirited driving once in a while to free up clogged lungs.
    How old is your car ? How many Kms till now ?

    The front bumper have gone very bad, need to do an BNW paint job.

    Thank you @PradeepM, Target is to maintain for atleast 10 years,3L+ Kms drive. Lets see how the chasis holds.

    @Pradeepms
    if your driving is more in city, then do some spirited driving on open highways.My ride is purely highway car,so never had pickup issuess.
    i got cleaned intake manifold and egr at 1,46,000 Kms , recovered 250gms of deposited carbon.Once you cross 50K Kms get the intake manifold and EGR cleaned.
    Spirited driving= High revving= Drive it like stolen car.
