    Hi . I was in middle of a highway run and took a halt inbetween. Thats ven i noticed that the exhaust seemed a bit over sooty to me. Got my first worry. Then i just rubbed the exhaust soot with my fingers and found it bit oily . This was my second big big worry. With bikes this usuallt means end of the engine. Is the engine dying on my punto. What shud i do now. Im horribaly worried. Pick up looks ok. Accelaration seems ok too. I never spotted any oil leakage inder the car ever. please help me. .....many thanks

    I believe you mean the exhaust tail pipe was covered with soot on the inside?

    Well, that's how it will be. It's a diesel, after all. Not a petrol. :)

    Do not worry , just enjoy the Punto.

    hello Gurjinder....
    Many thanks for the reply. Yes, u r right. i was reffering to the exhaust tail pipe itself.Makes me feel so much better reading thru ur reply. so the soot being a bit oily is perfectly ok ?.

    Yeah. If on a diesel you dont have a sooty exhaust tip you got to worry. Everything is perfectly fine on your car. Dont worry.
