rs 900 for 4 pcs good condition new model punto 14 inches
I am planning to buy Palio 1.9D from my cousin. 80+k Kms done. Car is in excellent condition but it has the Famous Fuel injection Pump problem.
On First ignition car vibrates and when you stop and Start it behaves normally. Fiat mechanic suggested that we can do alternate option for fuel pump .
Mico made fuel pump can be installed and there would be no sensor problems but he hinted that there would be slight loss of power.
As i am not aware of PALIO's ..can any one suggest how to proceed with FIP problem rectification?
Whatever you do, do not get any other pump installed as it wont work.
The FIP calibration/sensor error is rectified at a place in Mumbai. Once done, it stays fine. I had it done at 50k kms and now i'm at 1.40 lac kms.
I'll ask the local FIAT mech for the contact.number/address of the Mumbai place which does work on these pumps.
What price is being quoted for the car.
Thanks for suggestion gurjinder. Price quoted 1.4 lacs.
1.4 lacs seems to be on the higher side. You are looking at approximately 20k to fix the pump alone. What about the general condition of the car and has its timing belt kit ever been replaced? Also ask about the clutch. New genuine clutch kit is 8k, if at all we can locate it.
Try around 1-1.10 max.

Also, look at the engine bay and try and see how many OE FIAT hose clamps you can locate. If you see lots of screw type clamps, that means the car has had quite a fair bit of opening up of hoses. Its one of the basic checks of a Palio.
I saw a 1 lac + run palio with all factory clamps. One owner car, zero issues.
I have took FIAT Mechanic along with me. I did drive the car. Power is excellent . Engine doesnt have vibrations and well maintained one. Clutch is good.
Apart from FIP everything is in place as per mechanic. I did see the engine bay and mechanic confirmed that all are OE clamps ( I did read your post in past so i confirmed the same with mechanic ).
IMO too 1.1 lac would be fair price. As per my cousin FIP issue is there from long back.
