    So now you can know how much do I know about my car? As I knew that my car has electronic power steering. Actually I just wanted to give my car for service because I wanted to change my headlights. Actually I am not able to find authorized BOSCH spare centre. Can you please tell me what is cleaning and radiator flushing? Is it possible to do it without changing the coolant?

    I think it a bit early for changing the oil. About steering oil as I know Alto comes with EPS and not HPS. So on need to change the steering oil also. And about coolant as you had given your car to service on 23k Kms no need to change the coolant also just do check it if it is low do top up it. You are right that oil filter is changed when oil is changed. So if you planning to change the oil do change the Oil filter also.

    Oil change in Maruti Alto

    When I took my car (Maruti Alto LXi) for servicing for around 23K Kms with oil change. The dealer told me that the next service is after 10k Kms. That means after 33K Kms. But now I have 28K Kms on my Odometer and I was planning to give my car to a local Service just for a safety purpose. So I just had few questions in mind. First should I change the oil? Should I change the Steering oil? Should I go for coolant change? Also what should I do about oil filter and Air filter also? As much as I know that oil filter is to be changed only when the oil is changed.

    In Radiator flushing they remove all the coolant, some time they also remove the radiator and clean all things and after that while fitting they fit a new coolant with it.

    For Maruti SX4 you need to use Synthetics oil From Shell/Mobil 1
