    Yes.

    Not yet changed and no any symptoms yet.

    It was discussed by me with SA at TASS around 1.05 K servicing. It was mentioned not applicable to 75 HP.

    So aren't you planning for the change in near future and you have crossed 1Lac Kms ? i believe you are reading the thread about Timing Chain replacement.

    This weekend myselves will enquire with TASS.
  4. Ganges, What parts along with timing chain you are planning to change?
    I need to do that same as i feel my car's timing chain is nearing it's service life.

    Sat,
    i dont have any idea about this timing chain.Well tomorrow i will visit TASS and enquire all the required parts,as TASS have stopped to place the order on spare parts,but they are ready to do the job if parts(FIAT genuine with spare part number) are sourced.

    Hi All,

    My car will complete 1,20,000 before her third birthday; at present 1,17,000.

    I realize lot of disucssions regarding following points as below.

    1. EGR Cleaning
    2. Diesel Additive
    3. Timing Chain Replacement
    4. Mobile Delvac Oil
    5. Aftermarket filters etc.
    6. Hi Speed Diesel

    From above not a single thing I have done with my car so far.

    Absolutely nothing..................... No Issue......Perfect Car.

    Do we really require this?

    You've answered the query yourself. If it ain't broke, don't fix it ;)

    If you can, switch to Delvac 1. Out of that list, this is the only one i would recommend. Plus, get the timing chain looked at if it has never been replaced till date.

    Cheers.

    From the above,i feel,timing chain is the only thing i will be worried about,nothing else.
    EGR cleaning is needed,if you find your car giving out excessive smoke,and if it feels sluggish.

    Thanks Gurjinder; Will think for Delvac 1.
    Regarding Timing Chain; last service SA mentioned no need at present as no any noise or symptom.

    No excessive smoke; no sluggish ness.
