    Im taking my car to Continental Automobiles in Trivandrum to fix the issue. They are not the authorized Fiat service centre, but heard some good reviews.

    kailas , if black smoke is due to clogging of air filter and you are changing , may be you can "gift" K&N Filter to your linea :)

    It was taken by my friend :)

    My issue with the smoke & power has been resolved. Ayub Khan, the mechanic from 'Continental Automobiles', Trivandrum brought back my car to full swing. As many of you mentioned here, it was the problem with the egr. Also the turbo kick wasn't happening for many days. He cleaned the egr, fixed other minor issues, topped up the coolant and the car is a beast again! Its like a remapped one now! But they charged Rs.4800 in total. Is it a decent price or on a higher side?

    Awesome , after EGR cleanup car really feel like new.

    This rate varies as per region , for me it costed in less than 2K , but it will not be fair to compare those rates as that mechanic would always charge me less than market rates.

    EGR cleanup is very tedious process for mechanic - that carbon is very hard to cleanup , takes a lot of times. Need to be very patient and use those brush/vaccum cleaner to remove blockages.
