    Hi All,
    Thank God, there are no such complains from T-Jeters. My T-jet leaped just 33000Kms, no such issues even in our colder/and or subzero climatic conditions, only shockers feel stiff making some sounds while crossing over speed breakers in winters. After few kms it comes to normal functioning.
    OK, My-Palio had some hard gearing/clutching problem ,presently at 71000kms odo reading, the mechanic released some pressure from some cable in engine-bay but the problem of hard-gearing still persisted. I was upset with this because there is no FIAT SC in our city. But, last week the battery failed which was replaced with brand new Exide-MDIN50, to my surprise the hard-gearing problem disappeared to nearly no-issue of hard-gearing.
    Now enjoying both the "tanks" Palio and T-jet for city and highway driving,respectively.
    My suggestion to all those who face problems of any kind in life...."Don't dwell on problems,focus on solutions",because every problem has a solution.

    Went to kht fiat for the clutch and pick up issue. Surprisingly, the issue was not with the clutch but with the injector. The mechanic just drove for 15 minutes and diagnosed it. As explained to me, the vacuum pressure was not correct and the injector was not responding to it. He cleaned it and rectified the vacuum pressure. Now, my punto back to form with butter smooth gear shift, clutch and nice pick up.

    75000+ Km and my Punto is excellent in this department.
    Btw clutch should not make a problem:- 1. if you know how to drive a car and 2. It does not have any manufacturing defect.

    Still, every machine has a certain fixed lifespan beyond which it can not be stretched.
    I think a good brand clutch should have life of more than 1,00,000 kms, which Punto is appearing to have.

    if i remember correctly we can adjust the clutch cable and ask any mechanic he will adjust it for half clutch.
    If still the same issue occurs then you may have to replace it.
