    Took my punto to kht motors sc today to get the black smoke checked.

    Fiat team lead velu told that they need to clean intercooler and EGR valve for this problem. He didn't check my car but was sure that this is how black smoke problem is resolved.

    I feel the pickup has gone down and mileage has also decreased by atleast 30-40%.
    Velu also asked me if i am feeling that pickup is low now..

    Will leave the car some day this week to get the problem rectified since it requires atleast half a day and today i had gone there in the afternoon!!
