Question

I have an ALTO K10 bought on may 2013. I rarely use it and it has only 2300KM on the odometer. It got first serviced at 300KM , 2nd on 700KM and 3rd on 1200KM. I am newbie to automobiles . Lately my car has developed a problem- While coasting ( ie accelerated to a particular speed and then foot is released from the accelerator and clutch , no brake is pressed) usually engine braking occurs. But now a new sound is being heard . I dont know to how to express the sound in words , but it like a frail metal sliding sound( imagine the exhaust pipe is being dragged at cnstant speed through the tar road a metallic friction type sound is heard no, some thing like that or something like if we drive at a low speed on a high gear a sound will occur no , that sound if frequency increased will be more like it ) . I dont know what to do. I parked the vehicle and run the engine but no change in engine noise in idle but i feel a little bit additional kick when starting the engine.I checked if it was clutch slipping/worn by applying parking brakes , and slowly releasing clutch on 3rd gear. The car tried to move forward and didnt go off. So i think no clutch problem , what else can the source of the sound??? I am very puzzled and panicked. Is it alignment problem or suspension problem , or axle problem i dont know please help. How much will it take to do repairs??

Answers for this Question

Hi, This sounds a bit strange for such a new car, but sometimes a part come faulty straight from the plant. However, the intensity of sound you are explaining, if there is a loose part or suspension problem, you could have noticed it already. Another possibility can be a faulty bearing in the drive train, so we would advise you to get it diagnosed at the nearest MSI service centre.

    Hey, its great that you are planning for a new car and Hyundai Xcent is indeed an amazing car. We must appreciate your choice. Hyundai has recently launched the facelift version of the Xcent which has gone through some cosmetic changes on the exteriors and interiors.

    Talking about the performance specifically, this car is being offered with 1.2 diesel and petrol engine. The petrol trim is capable of delivering a power of 84 bhp with a torque of 114 Nm whereas the diesel engine can deliver a power of 74 bhp with a torque of 190 nm.

    Talking about the mileage figures, the diesel motor delivers a maximum mileage of 25.4 kmpl (Highway) whereas the petrol motor delivers a maximum mileage of 20.14 kmpl (Highway).

    Now, there is no direct comparison between the performance between the performance of Hyundai Xcent and Elite i20 because of the engine difference. The petrol trim is same 1.2 liter engine but in diesel, the i20 comes with a 1.4 liter engine.

  • want to know Ameo petrol performance..???

    Published On :2017-05-20 15:22:11.0 PRALHAD

    Hey,

    We appreciate your interest towards car and your keenness to know the performance of VW Ameo. 

    Firstly talking about petrol variant, the petrol 1.2-litre is a tried and tested engine, 73bhp is what it produces and there's 110Nm of torque on offer and you might say the power is pretty sufficient for the segment. 

    About diesel, 1.5-litre, 4 cylinder diesel engine, which has been used in the Polo and the Vento, and it now makes its way into the Ameo. But what VW has managed to extract is more power out of this unit, which means that the Ameo is more powerful than the Polo. What Volkswagen has also managed to give the Ameo is a 5-speed manual and a 7-speed DSG. The 5-speed manual is a familiar unit and the gearshifts are smooth, which makes it a good companion, in both city traffic conditions and out on the highway.
