did my first service at mofaz. i think they dint do a good job for me. they said they're in rush to close , they just changed oil for me and let it go.
did my 2nd service yesterday at puchong, near tesco, changed semi sythetic oil plus dunno wat oil to make it smoother. told all my problems, but they said its normal. they changed the throttle sensitivity for me, making it now more sensitive. stepping abit the car will move. BUT the problem is, i cant control my foot, stepping abit means alot, which means more fuel burnt!!!! i think going back there to get it back to normal.
for the burning smell coming out from the aircond blower when u floor it, they said its normal because near the aircond compressor, they have some charcole of somethiing.. =.=
my last Rm80 ( rm2.55/l) lasted me 360km. 11.6km/l average. lowest!!! getting 15-16km/l is it really possible??? i really dont believe.
i did not have the sound coming out fromt he engine though, pump my nitrogen gas at puchong tireshop . i guess u could get this anywhere easily though.
im still suffering with 2000-3200 rpm at 3rd and 4th gear!!! 1000-2000rpmp and above 3200 rpm i really can get the power , but why not 2000-3200 rpm!!!! arghh!!!
hmm. well, not much to be done on the first service tho, oil, oil filter, that's all. the original engine oil that suzuki uses during servicing is semi synthetic already, so how come you changed to another semi?
hehe, no point trying to change throttle sensitivity imho, just get used to the different amounts of power you get when you depress the pedal to different degrees. do pardon my noob layman's terms, i'm not a car expert/freak.
will look into the nitrogen gas. the damn sound problem with my swift just got really bad yesterday.... to the point where it competes with the radio when i'm idling or going <10kmph... gonna head to suzuki glenmarie and give them what for next week.... such bull... a new car developing soo many problems, and their mechs not being able to find out what it is.
15-16km/l? hmm.. no spare tyre + really light driver + modded rims and thin tyres.. maybe? 100% recipe for disaster? dunno.. i was coming back from KLIA one night, was on the NKVE going back home to damansara heights in really really heavy rain and drastically reduced visibility. this black modded swift shot by and disappeared from sight.... came round the corner to the shell and petronas stations opposite eastin, the swift had smashed into the divider and skidded a fair way... was gonna stop, but a wira and another car stopped, so i figured he'd be ok (with the airbag and all
). Went to mofaz a few days later to get them to look at my wiring, and the same black swift was there. had a good look at the wreckage along with most of the other customers there.. i think the whole engine or at least 70% of it was missing, no bonnet etc left lol. but the passenger doors and compartment seemed to be ok.
