    Mine is Punto 1.3 MJD Emotion pack and during my recent 15K service done at Concorde, Sanath Nagar, Hyderabad fuel filter was replaced with a one that don't have a sensor Part No. is 0059116319 and description is "FUEL FILTER WITHOUT SENSOR DSL" and amount charged is Rs.1615.72. Is fuel filter with sensor available?

    I am along with my vehicle during this service.

    mvb4u one doesn't need the Fuel Filter with sensor if the sensor of the old fuel filter is functioning properly and not damaged. The sensor is detachable part and can be removed and attached to fuel filter which is without sensor.

    I Enquired same with Service Personnel.. He does'nt know the capacity of engine. For clarification i enquired with one of my friend who own
    emotion pack. To my surprise they charged same for him i.e 4 litres. How ethical is it????

    It is not ethical. Concorde Motors charged me for 3.5 litres of Selenia K during the fourth paid servicing of my Linea. Click here for details. If they charged for 4 litres, you are entitled to ask for the balance quantity.

    The sump capacity is 3.3 litres in case of Linea 1.4 FIRE as per the owner's handbook. The SA informed me of this and the engine oil was poured in my presence until it reached the maximum level after pouring the entire 3.5 litres.

    So, They detach the sensor of the old filter and fit the same for the new one. Thank you, for clarification

    1.3MJD engine oil sump capacity is 3.2 Ltrs during filter change and 3.0 Ltrs without filter change.

    But concorde guys poured 3.5 Ltrs and oil level is above the high mark.
