    The possible reason that the sound could not be detected during service could be that the engine was always hot or never allowed to get completely cold during service. The first clear pick up of the timing chain noise happens in the early morning cold start which you failed to notice or the symptom, may have just started when your engine was jump started after three weeks and the technician noticed it.May turn out to be your good fortune.

    As suggested by TFI, I have decided to do a full oil change along with the timing chain change(₹2.2+k). Thank you.
    The car is currently with co brother. His driver nudged the bonnet to an auto in the front and is now in his favourite workshop for dent removal. So in a few days, the car will visit FASS for timing chain replacement. I'm also trying to arrange his driver (another driver) to be at the FASS to check the noise after fixing it and verifying the oil change.
    The car is due a shampoo wash after that.

    Got the timing chain changed today. Total expense 2,800 (2630 for full oil change + oil seal. Rest to the driver who picked up and dropped the car). Done in warranty, no expense for timing chain or labour.
    Done at Hyson FIAT service, Kochi.
