    My 2nd service(15000km) is due,this month.

    Should I opt for DECARBONISATION of the engine?
    I donot feel any problem(low pickup,vibration while idling,smoke etc.) as such.

    Please advise.

    This is something new i'm listening that too for second service...
    When you dont have any problem then why such thought ?

    As per my knowledge, DECARBONISATION is not needed for a barely 15 k run engine. And its needed only when there are any specific issues like drop in mileage, low pick up etc... Experts can correct me if am wrong!

    I was not sure(it's a routine job or symptomatic) that's why I asked.

    THANKS to both of you friends for clarification.

    You are rite ! as per my google knowledge :D and this task is never called so early,depending upon the kind off fuel you normally fill-in.
    May be this task is called after Lakhs of kilometers with maintaining good quality fuel.

    2nd SERVCE--15000KM DONE

    I am a bit late posting this and back after a long time to my ownership thread.

    2nd service was done on 29/09/12 at RD MOTORS WS.Completed 15000km on that day itself.

    Engine oil used by the TASS---CASTROL EDGE.

    Added galio door visor--1290/-.

    Received my FIAT(original) key chain yesterday.Bought it from VICKY.IN.

    Now the question arises, after 15000km & almost 1 year of ownership of a PUNTO diesel---AM I SATISFIED WITH MY CAR?

    Yes I am.

    I was pretty clear about my expection from this car and this car has fulfilled my expectation to the fullest.

    The costliest car I have ever driven before buying PUNTO was a diesel VENTO.

    After driving MS & HYUNDAIS for years I wanted to purchase a car which would give me the real joy of driving & PUNTO gives me that hands down.

    This car never betrayed me ----be it mileage,be it acceleration(expectation specific),be it servicing cost,be it reliability.

    I love my PUNTO.

    Thanks all.

    Windscreen developed a crack due to a stonehit.TASS quoted 7500/-.Got it replaced from WINDSHIELD EXPERT centre at KOLKATA--costed me 6100/-.
