My Tata Altroz diesel idling at a higher rpm than usual

Tata 2.0 cars are great to drive and be in, but they are not as reliable as a Maruti. I had zero issues with my Ciaz until the day I sold it at 1.34 lakh km.

BHPian PrasannaDhana recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

October started super actively. I had to clock 600 km in the first 3 days. Yesterday evening, after my usual work drive, I noticed that the car was idling 100 rpm higher than usual.

Opened the bonnet to check and found some fluid (like oil) sprayed over one side of the engine cover. I opened the engine cover and checked if the oil spray was originating from any part of the engine head/oil dip stick region. It wasn’t the case.

Called Kaveri Tata, they picked up the car at 6 pm, I received the car back today afternoon. The intercooler hose was loose, I was told, and it has been secured back to its original position.

Storme is at 72000 km and going absolutely strong. I luckily have a secondary car to fall back on. I will have to stop recommending Tata 2.0 cars to others, given the frequent minor issues one has to face. Great cars to drive and be in, but not as reliable as a Maruti. I had 0 issues with my Ciaz until the day I sold it at 1,34,000 km.

I have been driving the Altroz sedately for the past 5 days and the results are evident from the excellent FE.

The car is at 56,300 km as of now and will continue duties from tomorrow.
