    Well the mileage depends on the geographical area in which you are driving, 12kms/l is too less for the beast.
    Try adding fuel and oil additives. let the car run for 200 kms atleast so that it is mixed well with fuel and oil.
    I think the black smoke should be reduced. if it doesnt I think the head should be cleaned. as your car is already 88,000 run

    That is Engine Yellow sign. I asked Negi from Kashyap fiat. He told me that my engine sensor is misbehaving. It should be changed. Its cost is Rs.4000/- :(:( and due to this sensor car is giving black smoke. Can it be happen ???

    Otherwise after servicing Pick is very good and car is running very smooth without any trouble and noise.

    One of the common reasons for black smoke/low mileage/low pickup is due to a cut in one of the turbo hoses. Pls tell the sc categorically to check all the turbo hoses for any cuts.

    Most likely cut in turbo hose. First thing to check.

    Also, U need to start taking the check engine message seriously. The message does not come up for fun.

    When turbo hose is cut u can also hear a whoosh sound when accelerating hard.

    Hi guys, my line 1.3 mjd gives around 12 in Delhi traffic. Currently it has done 83k kms. I got clutch changed around 76K. Timing chain was done around 61k, it got broken during one of visit to chandigarh...

    Now my car is giving excessive black smoke on heavy acceleration. .. pickup and power is OK no issues on that... so is the engine oil level... I got it checked and my mechanic is saying ERG valve or turbo may have developed problem. My question is that if turbo has got some problem what are the other symptoms ?

    My ext. warrante expired on 9th Dec. So I contacted Mr.Mangesh.
    I noticed his attention to the issue I am facing from the first service of my 90 HP.
    Now Mr.Mangesh has put his hands on his ears. He is not ready to accept the fact that FIAT has failed to solve the problem.
    As usual he only assured about not to worry. So I demanded him to recall the car for factory checkup.

    Let's see what happens
