Obliex, how much distance did your car clock till now? I think my car is also just like yours,less frequently run. Actually i need the forum gurus to help me out here.. Heard a news that fiat linea 1.3 MJD engine has a 'TIMING-CHAIN' problem. One of my distant cousin's linea was taken back and did an engine rebuild once he covered 60,000 km. It was the issue with the timing-Chain. I am not a technical guy and so i am not sure of what all work was done. Only know that the piston,valves, and cylinder head was completely in a bad shape. Same type of problem was reported by a driver of my cousin. I dont think he needs to lie because he was all praising about Fiat UNO and SIENA which he used to drive(previous owners).I dont have much contacts in any showroom. Recently i befriended a service guy and he agreed that there are reports of the 'TIMING-CHAIN' issue. i simply love my linea MJD and i already booked another Punto 90HP. No other car in this price bracket matches its drive ability. Also I am wondering why only fiat cars have this problem when 10X times same engine is doing its work in other cars. Or are they keeping mum? I am very much tensed now. i searched a lot in net about this issue,but couldn't find one.
