Taking care of the Environment

Tata Motors is committed to producing cars using environmental friendly technology. A number of features have been incorporated in our passenger cars which are specifically designed to ensure environmental compatibility throughout the life cycle of the car. We would like to inform you that your car meets emission norms and is being regularly validated at the manufacturing stages to keep up with the stringent emission norms.

n n n n

ENVIRONMENT PROTECTION

Monitor the car’s fuel consumption regularly. If it shows a rising trend get the car immediately attended to at the Company’s Authorised Service Centre.

Switch off the engine during long stops at traffic jams or signals. If you need to keep the engine running, avoid unnecessary revving or stopping and starting.

It is not necessary to rev up the engine before turning it off as it unnecessarily burns the fuel.

Shift to higher gears as soon as it is possible. Use each gear upto 2/3 rd

of it’s maximum engine speed. A chart indicating gear shifting speeds is given in this book.

As a user you too can protect the environment by operating your car in a proactive manner. A lot depends on your driving style and the way you maintain your car. Listed below are few tips that will help you do so.

MAINTENANCE OF THE CAR :

WHILE DRIVING :

n n

Avoid frequent and violent acceleration.

Do not carry any unnecessary weight on the vehicle as it overloads the engine.

Avoid using devices requiring high power consumption during slow traffic condition.

n n

Ensure that recommended maintenance is carried out on the car regularly at the Tata Motors Authorised

Service Outlets.

As soon as you notice any leakage of oil or fuel in the car we recommend that you get it attended immediately.

Use only recommended brands and grades of lubricants

& coolants and clean/uncontaminated fuels.

23

ENVIRONMENT PROTECTION

n n n n n n

Get your vehicle checked for emission periodically by our authorised dealer and regularly renew the P.U.C.

Certificate.

Ensure that fuel filter, oil filter, breathers are periodically checked and if required, replace the same using only genuine recommended brands.

Do not pour used oils or coolants into sewage drains, garden soil or open streams. Dispose of the used filters and batteries in compliance with the current legislation.

Do not allow any unauthorised person to tamper with the engine settings or to carry out modifications on the car.

Never allow the vehicle to run out of fuel. This will result in misfiring of the engine and could cause harm to the catalytic cinverter.

Parts like brake liners and clutch disc should be vacuum cleaned. Do not use compressed air for cleaning these parts which may spread the dust in the atmosphere.

While carrying out the servicing or repairs of your car, you should pay keen attention to some of the important engine aggregates which greatly affect emission. These components are :

1. Fuel injection pump , Injectors / Nozzles

2. Air intake & Exhaust system especially for leakage

3. Cylinder head for valve leakage

4. All filters such as air, oil & fuel filters (check periodically)

5. Catalytic converter

6. E.G.R. system (Diesel)

7. Turbocharger & Intercooler (Diesel)

8. Ignition System - Spark plug gap (Petrol)

This Owner’s Manual & Service Book contains further information on driving precautions and maintenance care leading to environment protection. Please familiarise yourself with these aspects before driving.

STARTING THE ENGINE

Before starting the engine :

• Apply the parking brake fully.

• Ensure that the gear lever is in neutral position.

Starting the engine (Diesel)

Press the clutch pedal fully and turn the ignition key to

‘IGN’ position. Ensure the

“CHECH ENGINE” (BS-

III)“MIL” (BS-IV) lamp turns “ON”.

NOTICE

The Starter Protection System fitted in this car does not allow you to crank the engine until you fully press the clutch pedal.

The glow plug indicator on the instrument panel will glow.

Wait till the glow plug indicator goes off.

Do not press the accelerator pedal.

Keep the clutch pedal fully pressed and crank the engine, if the engine cranks but fails to start then repeat the above procedure. Release the key as soon as the engine starts. Ensure that the “MIL” lamp is “OFF”.

After starting the engine, keep the engine in idling for at least 30 seconds. Do not accelerate the engine

84

immediately after starting to avoid damage to turbocharger. (Diesel)

NOTICE

The Starter Protection System switches off the starter when it is cranked for more than 10 secs. In such a case, get the key back to OFF position and wait for 30 secs before cranking again. This safeguards the starter motor as cranking continuously for more than 10 secs can damage the starter motor. Also immediately release the key after the engine has started, otherwise the flywheel ring/ starter motor may get damaged.

NOTICE

Tata Indigo diesel cars use Electronic Micro Processor

Controller to control critical engine parameters like pre/post glow and cold advance. The glow plug and cold advance function will remain on even after starting of the engine depending on the engine coolant temperature at the start.

It is quite likely that at higher altitude (above 2000 meters) one may experience exhaust smoke being white in colour or engine hesitations in cold driving condition. The above observations are for few seconds only, and in order to contain the happening, it is suggested that after idle run of

30 seconds on a cold engine start, the car can be driven off.

The above white smoke at altitude in cold condition from diesel engine is a normal happening, and due to temporary effect of atmospheric pressure. This in no way will affect the engine performance or the ecology.

Starting the engine with a malfunction (Petrol):

• Press the clutch pedal and turn the ignition key to 'IGN' position.

• Press the accelerator pedal by 1/4th of full travel. Do not depress the accelerator pedal fully down.

ENGINE” (BS-III)“MIL” (BS-IV) lamp is indicating a malfunction.

• In the above condition engine may stall if the accelerator pedal is released back to idle position.

• If engine stalls, repeat the above procedure from beginning

& drive the car without releasing the accelerator pedal to

'Idle' position.

Stopping the Engine :

• Let the car come to a stop and engine to idle.

• Turn the key to “OFF”position

Fuel Economy

INSTRUCTIONS TO IMPROVE FUEL ECONOMY :

Your car's fuel economy is mainly dependent on your style of driving.

To operate your car as economically as possible, use the following driving suggestions.

Avoid Excessive Idling :

Switch OFF the engine if you have to stop for more than a minute.

Avoid fast starts & unnecessary stops :

Start off slowly from traffic lights or stop signs to prevent excessive fuel consumption and reduced engine life. Avoid unnecessary deceleration (stopping or slowing down) and then acceleration which uses more fuel.

Always maintain clean air-cleaner :

The amount of air supplied will reduce due to clogged aircleaner, resulting in waste of fuel due to incomplete combustion.

Avoid incorrect tyre pressures :

Under-inflated tyres result in increased running resistance of the tyres, leading to wastage of fuel.

Always have the engine tuned correctly through recommended maintenance at an Authorised Service outlet.

Proper Driving Practices :

Keep a safe distance from other vehicles to avoid braking suddenly.

Do not rest your foot on the clutch pedal. It does not allow full engine power to be transmitted to the vehicle and reduces clutch life.

MPFI System :

NOTICE

The multi point fuel injection system has been designed to meet various load and speed conditions of the engine and doesn't require any regular maintenance. MPFI system should be serviced by Authorised Service personnel only, if required.

TIPS RELATED TO FUEL SYSTEM MAINTENANCE (MPFI):

Basically, the fuel system of the vehicle consists of the following main components :

1. Fuel tank 2. Fuel Filter 3. Fuel Pump 4. Fuel Rail

5. Fuel pressure regulator and 6. Fuel injector.

The following instructions are to be followed for reducing problems related to the fuel system.

a) Avoid keeping the fuel tank empty and preferably keep it topped up as frequently as possible.

NOTICE

NOTICE

Empty fuel tank may lead to inner corrosion of the tank.

The rust particles thus formed may result in frequent clogging of fuel filters. If the rust particles enter the system, it may result in malfunctioning of the MPFI system.

b) Replace clogged fuel filters to prevent inconsistent fuel delivery from the fuel pump.

MAINTENANCE & CAR CARE - Brake & Brake Fluid

BRAKES (Vacuum Assisted) : The hydraulic brake system of your car is assisted by a vacuum booster which reduced the effort of driver during braking. In the unlikely event of disruption in supply of vacuum to the booster (e.g. stoppage of engine, or failure of vacuum hose) this assistance will still be available but only for one or two brake applications to bring the vehicle to a stop. Beyond this, vacuum assistance will not be felt by the driver and brakes will appear to be hard/ineffective. In order to stop the vehicle effectively the driver will have to apply a much higher force on the brake pedal (roughly 5 times the normal effort).

CAUTION

Never drive the vehicle in engine switched "OFF" condition.

Brake Fluid :

Check the level of brake fluid in the brake fluid container. It should be between the MIN. and MAX. marks.

If not, then add brake fluid. Clean the area surrounding the cap before opening the cap. Always use fresh brake fluid and tighten the cap fully, otherwise moisture from the atmosphere will be absorbed by the brake fluid, making it unserviceable.

In case of spongy or hard pedal or low brake efficiency, please contact the nearest Authorised Service outlet and get the defect rectified.

Clean the windows inside and outside with commercially available glass cleaners.

This will remove the haze that builds up on the inside of windows. Use a soft cloth or paper towels to clean all glass and plastic surfaces.

MAINTENANCE & CAR CARE - Car Care

Inflate the tyres to 0.5 bar above the normal specified pressure and check it at regular intervals.

Check the battery charge every six weeks.

Do not drain the engine cooling system.

Wiper Care :

FOR CHATTERING & NOISY PROBLEMS VIEW WITHOUT WIPER BLADE

Maintaining the car when not in extended use :

Park the car in covered, dry and if possible well-ventilated premises.

Engage a gear.

Remove the cables from the battery terminals (first remove the cable from the negative terminal).

Make sure the handbrake is not engaged.

Clean and protect the painted parts using protective wax.

Clean and protect the shiny metal parts using commercially available special compounds.

Sprinkle talcum powder on the rubber windscreen wiper and rear window wiper blades and lift them off the glass.

Slightly open the windows.

Cover the car with a cloth or perforated plastic sheet. Do not use sheets of imperforated plastic as they do not allow moisture on the car body to evaporate.

Windshield

Glass

OK NOT OK

Wiper blade attack angle on windshield glass should be 90 0 i.e. perpendicular.

Remove wiper blade and root wiper arm on windshield glass in the centre position. Check the gap between arm strip and glass.

Adjust by twisting wiper arm as shown in the figure.

MAINTENANCE & CAR CARE - Car Care

FOLLOWING GUIDELINES WILL HELP YOU TO BETTER

PROTECT YOUR CAR FROM CORROSION

PROPER CLEANING :

In order to protect your car from corrosion it is recommended that you wash your car thoroughly and frequently in case :

1. There is an heavy accumulation of dirt and mud especially on the underbody.

2. It is driven in areas having high atmosphere pollution due to smoke, soot, dust, iron dust & other chemical pollutants.

3. It is driven in coastal areas.

4. The underbody must be thoroughly pressure washed after every three months.

In addition to regularly washing your car, the following precautions need to be taken.

PERIODIC INSPECTION :

1. Regularly inspect your car for any damage in the paint film such as deep scratches and immediately get them repaired from an Authorised Service Centre, as these defects tend to accelerate corrosion.

2. Inspect mud liners for damages.

3. Keep all drain holes clear from clogging.

128

PROPER PARKING :

Always park your car in shade to protect it from harsh sunlight or in a well-ventilated garage so that there is no dampness on any part of the car.

WASHING YOUR CAR :

Follow these tips while washing your car.

HAND WASH :

1. Always wash your car in shade and when the surface is at room temperature.

2. Wash with mild car wash soap like "Car Shampoo" and use a soft 100% cotton cloth to avoid scratches. Please take help of your dealer to buy the right products.

3. Please be sure that you remove your wristwatch and wear soft gloves to avoid scratches due to finger rings or nails.

4. To remove stubborn stains and contaminants like tar, use turpentine or cleaners like "Stain Remover" which is safe for painted surfaces. Again your dealer can help you in selecting the right product.

5. Avoid substances like petrol, diesel, kerosene, benzene or other solvents that cause damage to paint.

6. Dry your vehicle thoroughly to prevent any damp spots.

7. Rinse all surfaces thoroughly to prevent any traces of soap and other cleaners as this may lead to the formation of stains on the painted surface later.

WAXING :

Waxing and polishing is recommended to maintain the gloss and wet-look appearance of your paint finish.

1. Use a good quality polish and wax for your car.

2. Re-wax your car when the water does not slip off the surface and collects over the surface in patches.

Further tips for the care of your new CAR finish :

We recommend that you do not use an automatic car wash as the stiff brushes or sponges could mar the finish and damage the surface of your car. Wash the vehicle by hand with cool and clean water using a soft cloth or sponge. Please do not use soap but a car shampoo recommended by your dealer.

Please take the following precautions :

1. Always wash your car in shade, avoiding direct exposure to sunlight during washing.

2. Dry wiping your car may lead to the formation of scratches and hence always use a soft cloth and clean water while wiping your car.

3. Always keep your car parked in a well ventilated shade.

Exposure to heat with entrapped moisture promotes corrosion.

MAINTENANCE & CAR CARE - Car Care

4. Avoid driving on gravel roads, as the possibility of paint chip off due to the impact of stones is high. If you are driving on freshly tarred road, check immediately afterwards for any stains & clean them.

5. External contamination in the form of sap or industrial fall-out may mar or develop spots on a new finish. Hence avoid parking your car near trees, which are known to drop sap, or near factories, which give out heavy smoke.

6. The acid content in bird droppings may damage the newly painted finish and hence any bird dropping must be immediately washed off.

7. The paint finish is susceptible to damage in case petrol, brake fluid, liquid from car battery, oil, antifreeze, transmission fluid or windshield solvent spills onto the painted surface. In case of such a spillage immediately rinse the affected area with water. Avoid wiping the area as far as possible, however if wiping is required, ensure that you wipe the area gently with soft cotton cloth.

8. Avoid using sharp objects to scrap off tar or mud from a painted surface as it may develop scratches or may peel off the paint.
