    I hear a whistling sound after switching on my Jet. It is audible outside the car even without revving the engine

    hope it's normal turbo sound and nothing to worry about

    I was sure about turbo problem. But I purposly kept mum because someone would have remarked me that I am doing speculation.

    below are the pictures of linea's turbocharger taken in feb in a TASS in bangalore. this is from the vendor from where Fiat sources it. Name of the vendor is Turbo Energy Ltd India. The price of turbo is visible on the pack which is 12600 and name as TEL.

    Heres a related post: http://www.teamfiat.co.in/punto-1-3-mjd/2423-journey-punto-9.html#post89810

    On checking the same with Fiat spares inventory system it showed the price as 19xxx with Fiat part no : 55198317

    actually you are right Vijay bhai! i didn't know the difference that time and the SC guys duped me for this delaying further by telling me that this one is for linea.
    Now I am noticing that it doesn't have the extra vacuum actuator thats not present in FGT turbos.

    But what i remember very clearly is that the price of both Turbos from Fiat was 19xxx when checked in their online inventory at TASS spares counter

    ok so if the turbo should fail can i get it directly from the dealer for 12600 and get it fitted outside?
    I'm very sure its going to be cheaper by leaps and bounds...

    This is the FGT that goes into all Puntos from '09 models till the latest , is it?

    get it checked . Always better to be on the safe side and much easier to get the replacement in the normal warranty period.Normally no dealer stock the turbo it has to be ordered and would take 7-10 days.


    This is for Punto and not for linea.
