    The timing chain, once it gets into your head, its tough to dislodge. So its better off to have it looked into,as thats one thing among many that you mentioned, that can really stop you on the tracks. If the timing chain has served you well for the last three years, a change now would give a trouble free drive for the next three

    As for the EGR, for your kind of running, it should definitely have been a lot of highway drives at high speeds and the sheer volume and velocity of exhaust gases would almost ensure that possibility of exhaust residues remaining in the exit channels are minimal. Also the sheer usage of your car will make you think less of the mechanicals and the miles get racked even before you know!.

    The going has been good for you. Enjoy the drive.

    Timing Chain

    Hi All,

    As recommended Team Fiatian Timing Chain attention made me to go Marvelous Motors, Kolhapur on 10-08-2013.

    Diagnosis was little bit chain noise and recommended to reaplce with qoute of around 12,000/- . Only problem not in stock.

    So in eveing I was with Mr. Shoib- representative of Sky Moto,Chinchwad,Pune. (Reason : Booked Fiat Linea 1.3 MJD)

    He mentioned their exclusive service station at Akurdi has started. He immediately co-ordinated with service station CRM Miss Nisha and confirmed availablity of part. Cost around 7,500/- including labour.

    I was having my work planned in Pune from 12-08-2013; so I asked Nisha, is it possible to get appointment on 12-08-2013 and she answered yes.

    I took decision and I informed her I will be at your FASS sharp at 0900 Hrs on 12-08-2013.

    Today morning started from Kolhapur at 0530 Hrs and reached Sky Moto FASS at Akurdi at 0855 Hrs.

    And experience as below:
    1. Security attened very politely and helped to get settle down.
    2. At 0905 Hrs attened by receptionist. Immediate co ordination with SA and we were off to my car
    3. Job card prepared : Timing Chain Kit replacement
    Left 'C' pillar plastic cover replacement
    4. At 0920 : Copy of job card received. Estimate:7,500/- Delivery : Tomorrow morning as to replace they have to open oil sump. So they have to keep for drying before filling it up again. I said I will take vehicle tomorrow evening. It will be convinient for me as after delivery I will push off to Kolhapur from there itself.
    5. At 0925 : Had tea; warm wishes and moved for my work.

    Informed them booked Linea yesterday; smiles all around.:)

    Will report post servicing feedback once I receive vehicle tomorrow. So far so good...never experienced like this before.

    Now we will have 3 Fiat in my family.
    Grande Punto : 2 in Nos.
    Fiat Linea : 1 in no.
