Cars Q&A

I have Zen 2004 model in excellent condition.Total millage done 28000 kms. only.Regularly serviced at Maruti Service station in Pune. Engine oil was changed last year. since then total running is about 1000kms. only. I was out of India for six month Now I am back. Should I give my car for servicing? When should I change the oil? Kindly advice. C.B.Sharma

Expert`s comment:

Generally for maruti Zen Oil has to be changed once in 10000 KM or 6 months whichever is earlier. Hence it would be better to give the vehicle for service and change of oil.

i do agree shiva,moreover a non running car for 6 months do need a complete service.

Since you were out of India for 6 months (even nobody start the vehicle periodically) check the battery condition and tyre air pressure. There is no need of changing oil you can run the vechile another 4000 Kms without any problem. My suggestion is that use some Additives with Fuel before using the car(consult with the Car Agent). We are also using our Zen Lxi(2004)after ten months(yearly one month only. So far we are not facing any problem and running very smoothly.
