    Hello everyone!
    I own a Punto 90 hp and i have clocked 1.25 lacs km till date.

    Have gone through the forums but there is a mix information hence needed some clarity on oil change interval.

    I have checked with FASC but every advisor has his own suggestions.

    I was told since i have clocked 1 lacs plus kms i need to take special care of my engine and to do so i should ensure i change oil at 8 to 9 k intervals.

    Now my question is wats the final interval i should consider.should i change at 10k?? Or follow 15k?? Schedule mentioned in manual and top up oil at every 7.5k kms???

    Would Appreciate your advice...

    @sk.kashyap.92 : stick to 10k interval which is more than enough. what Kms have you used to service before?
    though FASS suggests 15k IM0 10k is the best interval. As it's crossed 1lac do keep an eye on all the hoses, coolant/oil levels, belts frequently. We would be glad to know your 1Lac Km journey on Punto. Do start an ownership thread soon.

    @sk.kashyap.92 : As your mileage has crossed 1 lac kms the engine oil interval of 15k kms is a strict no . I wont follow this interval even for my 5 months old 90 HP. Better to get it changed every 8-10k kms. It will keep your 90 HP younger :D

    You can rule out both the checks fuel filter and clutch.
    Clutch hardness will not give low economy.When did you cleaned EGR and intake manifold ? Check for cut in turbo hoses ?
    As you fall in 90ps category, i think you are now due for timing chain replacement.
