Sriwijaya's PK-CLQ

A former JetLite [S2/JLL] (India) 737-800, has been registered as PK-CLQ (c/n 29050, l/n 444), and is on its ferry flight from the mainland to Indonesia to join the Sriwijaya fleet. It's on the Bradley Pacific ramp, wearing the JetLite livery and tail logo, but without titles (above photo). This would make Sriwijaya's second 737 delivery in four days.

29050 was originally delivered to Tombo Aviation in December 1999 as N8253V. Later the same month, it was acquired by Air Sahara [S2/RSH] (India) as VT-SIK. When Air Sahara was bought out by rival Jet Airways [9W/JAI] in 2007, the airline was renamed as JetLite, and VT-SIK was absorbed into the JetLite fleet. The aircraft was also acquired by the Aviation Capital Group (ACG), and leased back to JetLite. It was returned to AGC in February 2012 as N905AG. The Blended Winglets were added after its return to ACG

Did this aircraft have maintenance issues? After landing, I noticed several crew looking under the hood of the left engine; then again they were there doing the same thing the following day.
