    Dear Vahan Pujari,
    Please clarify my doubt. I found in your report the spark plug has been replaces in 5th service at 60K. In Raviji's Linea it has been done in 4th service and in another member's Tjet it has been changed at 3rd service. Little bit confused now. My vehicle is at TASS and I am in dilema whether to ask for replacement. Did the service adviser tell anything specific for not to change the spark plug at 4th service.
    regards
    -sun

    I think you need to replace the spark plug at 4th service. I did for mine during 4th service. Costed Rs. 321.4/

    My GP (1.4 EP) is completing 3 years this month. Odo is about 36K.

    The last servicing was a year back and was last free servicing. I had an intermediate AC fan replacement, Clutch Slave replacement done post servicing.


    I am trying to check for online manuals on the service details from Fiat.

    How much damage should i expect for the scheduled servicing?

    TIA

    Fourth service may come to 10K + 2K. Have a look at my car's 4th service cost on the previous page.

    I don't think Service Advisor said anything about spark plug. I do not have access to service manual right now. But I'm not surprised. There is no standardisation across service centres.

    Thanks Fiatlover. Some how your reply post in that thread keeps disappearing. I saw it once then unable to trace it now . I saw a J Ravi post on 1.4 linea and that matches your range as well.

    Have you replaced the battery?

    Lately i have been getting the intermittent airbag failure messages which disappear after few seconds. From few threads i have read, i am thinking it is related to battery..

    I have no clue why my post in this thread is missing.:eek: You can get the details from ownership thread here. Yes, I did replace battery couple of months before 4th service.
