      Weird problem in Baleno.

      For the past 5 months I am going through a weard problem in Baleno, would be great if someone can help me with this.

      My Baleno suddenly stops when I am trying to slow down at signals or when I am slowing the car. But it starts immediately when i start, no problem in that. I used to get a check engine momentarly and after sometime it vanishes. Since the check engine light is not on always its causing difficulty for the mechanic to scan and troubleshoot.

      Earlier I used to get this oftern in city driving later I gave to Electra in chennai and they said there is some problem with air and fuel mixture ratio. After that it stopped happening frequently in city, but happens occasionally. But when I go for a long drive car behaves as if its struggling to burn fuel like the signs we get when pertrol comes to reserve in bikes. But it very voilent later it gets smooth when check engine light comes up. Again after sometime the lgiht goes off.

      This is really making me very sad and breaking my head.

      I have cleaned the throttle body, spark plug, fuel filter and air filter. I have a LPG kit fitted its happening in both the fuel system. Please help me with your suggestions.

      Thanks.

      Are you getting any sort of error when using an OBD scanner ?

      How much on the odo ? How frequent is the problem ? Is it happening in particularly hot day ? with or without A/C ?
      How is the engine temperature ?

      First I'd suggest to do a soft reset of the ECU by disconnecting the battery for 10-15 mins.

      Also I'd try replacing the plugs first. A single kaput plug can cause all this fuss.
      It even sounds a faulty/failing MAF or even O2 sensor.

      Thanks for the reply. Odo has crossed 102000 Km. Problem for sure occures in highways once I cross some 50 Km or so. In city it very sporadic like once in a week I travel some 35 Km every day. OBD dosn't through any error. Have replaced the plug as well and tried.

      I think need to look into MAF and O2 side, how to test this?

      if the problem is on petrol than it defiantly because of ECU so replace it with a new ONE or get it repaired

      It's occuring with both in LPG and Petrol, added to that check engine in not showing up long enough to catch the same in scanner. That's the one breaking the head.

      have you checked ignition_systems because it is responsible for burning fuel in both LPG and petrol

      Firstly, the Baleno is a distributorless setup. So Harpreet's idea might not be of much use.

      I would say check the crank & cam position sensors. I used to run on an aftermarket cam and this used to happen because of wrong cam timing.

      Ideally this will show up "if" its faulty.
      If its failing (probably since you have 1L on the odo) so you might actually catch the error only when the engine check light is ON.

      O2 sensor can cause "jerks" and basically you feel like engine is running rich.
      MAF - usually this will be still ok a quick clean should be the first step.

      Trouble shooting these without an actual error in the OBD is pretty tricky.

      Will this cause CEL to be ON ?
      My guess is if this is the issue should't issue he is facing be it be more regular than intermittent ?
