Q: My Ritz zxi starts at third key press and does not go over 75 speed

asked by on

Whenever I start my maruti Ritz zxi (petrol only) ,it take 3 time key press and on 3rd long ignition only engine starts idleing . With this problem, second problem I m facing is with race padel ,it does not go over 75.

My car has 13 miles.
My car has a manual transmission.

Hi there. Check the fuel filter and also check the fuel pressure regulator. the fuel filter could be plugging up causing a restriction for highway speeds. Also the regulator could be dropping at a steady high rpm on the highway. Put fuel cleaner in the tank. I recommend replacing the fuel filter if it has not been changed. If you need further assistance with your vehicle not going over 75 mph, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
