  • My car Chevrolet Cruze Automatic Transmission is not moving on the reverse gear. It all happened all of a sudden without any accident or damage. Its running on the Drive gear as before. What must have happened?

    One possibility is that it is a simple problem of shift lever mechanism from under the lever to the transmission.
    Another is that your transmission clutch plate set for reverse and the seal gasket o ring for hydraulic piston of rear gear in transmission has got a leak. get your transmission dismantled and checked.

  • Problem in gear shifting especially shifting to 2nd gear. Clutch is found hard. Tyre beating noise is observed when reaches the speed of around 45 km/hr. Noise while braking is observed.

    You guessed it right there might be wear in the clutch of your car which is causing the hard gear shift. The brake and the tyre noise are separate tasks and most likely your brake.pads are worn and tyres are having excessive patch work for punctures on them. get a complete repair done before using the car

  • while driving my celerio I feel vibrations mostly on 1 st and second gear and even when car is in idle state , when I turn off the a.c vibration disappear

    Hi the vibrations are due to additional load of the air conditioner. As the car gets older the injectors tend to get clogged and tend to release fuel out of calibration. This can be resolved by cleaning the injector and in petrol cars the spark plugs also needs to be checked. Before starting repair it has to be confirmed that the AC system is in good condition and there is no possibility of additional load from AC on engine. The Ac belt tension also needs to be checked.

  • Car speed is not more then 50km/hr after putting full accelerator.

    Hi get the following things checked.
    1. Clutch: check if clutch is slipping. If it slips replace the worn out parts with actuators if required. If clutch slips the power from engine will not get transferred to the wheels. In this case you will notice engine runs fast but car will not run as fast
    2. Fuel filter: It can be clogged and causing low fuel delivery. Also replace the spark plugs. If fuel filter restricts fuel delivery the power of engine will reduce and this can restrict the car speed to 50 kmph.
    3. In some cases certain electronic sensor failures can lead to car engine ECU going in to limp home mode under which speed is reduced for safety.

  • instrument cluster (speedometer) the lights behind speeddial not working but all indicator lights such as headlights all others are working properly

    This will require replacement of bulb in the cluster but in some vehicles the bulb will not be seperately available. In such cases a repair can be attempted on the cluster to replace the led bulbs. You can get the car t o one of our trusted workshops where we can get it fixed. In premium cars however I do not recommend any such repair. The reason is that in premium cars the cluster is connected to other ECUS by data networks.

  • Reverse lights and reverse parking sensors not working

    This is due to wiring issue most likely with your reverse switch within the transmission. Once you resolve the issue at a good workshop both the symptoms should get rectified. The signal to switch on reverse lights is taken from the reverse switch mounted on the transmission. The reverse parking sensors are generally getting signal from the wires to reverse lamps. In case of company fitments of parking sensors however the signal is taken from control module in the fuse box and the reverse switch from transmission gives signal to the fuse box. (this is generally the case)

  • hi,
    I having India car ,model xeta manufactured in year 2007. it is not in operation since last more than a year. to make car operable I may have to invest substantial amount for repair and service, looking at present condition .considering this shall I repair it? or shall I go with sell option ! and buy a new car. whether it will worth going with either of these options. Also need some refernce of vendor those are dealing with such facilities. please suggest.

    This entirely depends on your need for a car and the condition of the car when it was last used. If the car can be made operational with about 25 thousand rupees I would say it is worth as it will not be fetching much in resale value. Also if you still need a car why not use it. however if the tyres and battery are in bad condition then you might consider disposing it.The only other reason to change the car will be that you want a change of model
