  1. Garage has already replaced the steering wheel rack, lower arms, links, Shocks, Shock mounts. Also aligned wheels several times. Conditions is a bit better than the earlier, but still steering is not returning to the original position. Now It seems they still didn't identify the problem. Replacing all the items just assume the conditions. They still didn't charge for me because the problem is still not resolved. But I'm not too sure all those parts actually damaged. But I will have to pay for all the spare parts they replaced + labor cost.
  2. What does that mean? What does that mean? What I'm experiencing are as follows. 1. Engine running hard, Drive is not smooth and noisy than earlier 2. Fuel efficiency drop
  3. Hi, Earlier I was used Mo*il 10W-30 for my Suzuki Swift(Japanese beetle). But this time service station changed that oil to 15W-40. Mileage is around 55k now. Now I feel, car ride is not smooth as earlier (Not sure this because of engine oil or some other reason). So what is the recommend engine oil grade for my car? thanks
  4. Yes. Now rack also replaced still issue is not completely resolved. When turning to left side steering not returning fully (half circle). According to the garage now I've replace the shock as well :(. No. No off-roading or similar events.
  5. Hi, I observed that my Suzuki Swift (Beetle) steering wheel not returning to center after turning into left side. Also there was some noice when drive in gravel roads. So after inspecting in garage, they replaced lower arms and links and aligned the wheels. After two days, exactly same issue came again. Again I went to the same garage and they were suspected that sound came from rack and they replaced it with recondition rack.But still issue is there. Still steering wheel not returning after turning to left side and noice coming when drive in gravel road. What could be the issue is? regards, Flash
  6. Hi, Earlier I went to several service stations for the lubricant service. But I'm not satisfy with the work they had done.Can you recommend a good garage with service station near to Mount lavinia? Seems like this time, I've replace break pads and caliper pin too. May be razor as well. That;s why I'm looking for good garage+service station. Thanks,
  7. After cleaning battery terminals properly, issue is resolved. Thank you all for the inputs
  8. As you can see in the attached YouTube video, battery icon also not displaying.
  9. This is the problem. Battery voltage ok. I checked with voltmeter.
  10. Thanks. Seems like a good idea. Thing here is I couldn't find a backup battery near by. Is it safe to drive with this problem?
  11. My 12v power bank automatically turn off when there is no output device. I'm not sure whether the power bank provide power as backup battery when the car engine is not running.
  12. Is that OK to use below steps.? 1. Start the engine using main battery 2. Connect 12v power bank to connectors 3. Remove connectors from battery terminals 4. clean the terminals 5. Put back the connectors to main battery 6. Remove 12 v power bank from the connectors 7. Stop the engine

  14. Hi, My car dashboard lights flickering and all the meters in dashboard not working. I think this happen because of bad battery terminals. But I can not remove connectors which connect to the terminals because then my car player get reset. Can I clean battery terminals without turning off the engine? Or else Can I use car jump starter power bank to give battery power until I clean the terminals? Are there any other ways to clean battery terminals with support of power bank?
