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??

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.
