Hi Fiatians, I hope you all are doing great! I really require an expert guidance on this one as my linea 1.3 mjd had a breakdown today, complete overhaul. :-( A little bit of background (sorry for my naive language): I bought this vehicle (Fiat Linea 1.3 mjd emotion - 2014) as a second hand owner from a car dealer. Now, when I initially bought this one, the metre was showing 73k kms done (which was tampered as I got to know today, it actually ran 1,50,000kms until 2019 as per service records, also which I got to know today). I know I was foolish and naive to not check the Service records :-( Now I have spent quiet a considerabe amount on chaning parts (like suspensions parts, bushes, and engine mounts etc. which were pretty understable that were worn out) around 1 lac. The car had pickup and black smoke issue and I thought it must be the EGR, intake and turbo hose so I got it cleaned in the latest servicing which I did a week back. Now today while I was visiting my hometown, I suddenly got an message on odo dashboard "Low engine oil pressure, please stop and turn of engine" and then I did stop and turned off engine. But after confirming with my mechanic, he told to show it to a nearby Fass and so with the hope that I will at least be able to reach the FASS (which was about 10 kms) I started driving and also reached. They checked the engine oil level and codes and said everything is fine, nothing to worry of. I then started my journey but within 2 kms, taktaktaktak noise came from my bonnet and same message as earlier and this time my car stalled and wont even start. I had to tow the vehicle to Belgaum FASS and they said crankshaft and connecting bearing gone, need overhaul will need to do a half engine replacement. Now, with regards to the main factor which is the cost for all these, they said it may go above 1.2 lac (64k for half engine and rest for other parts). Now, since I am not a very technical guy in automobiles, I understand half engine but does these (so called) other parts really cost another 60k? I am just hoping and praying that I get lucky and find a linea mjd engine from any scrap cars so that I can exchange the engines if I could get them around for 20k or 30k more. My question which I am really really confused is: 1. Assuming that it does really cost 1.2 lac around, is it really worth going ahead? since I've already spent a little more than 1 lac on this car. 2. Assuming that I repair the same as quoted by FASS, is there any other major breakdowns or parts other than this one where I have to spend so much? I know this kind of breakdowns doesn't happen with everyone, I may be the lucky one :-I 3. Since I am not much of any Automobile guy (until now), and I know these mechanics can take you for a ride but can you please guide me what should be my next course of action! I really appreaciate if someone could provide their valuable inputs.. Thank you and stay safe!
