    Do you think they'll honour the extended warranty for all the parts, given that you did not get the timing chain changed earlier, on time, as reccommended by Fiat? I hope so.

    all the best

    ^^Check timing chain components above.

    For rocker arm etc. you can know what needs a change. As I thought initially, they need to be changed for sure. Do confirm the damaged parts and post if possible what items needed a change.

    @prabhjot - Fiat nowhere mentioned about timing kit change for the 75 HP variants. However, had I driven fine for another 2500 km, I already had plans to get it changed at 1 lakh km when I planned for my next service.
    I had also discussed this with the SA at KHT motors during my last service.

    Anyways, I received a notification from Vecto today morning that my extended warranty claim is rejected on the pretext that I had done my second and third service on the same day!:drowning: :confused:

    I had to send my second and third service bills to clarify that it wasn't the case, anyway. I am yet to hear back further.

    After multiple follow ups, finally the extended warranty was approved yesterday. I will need to pay for the consumables only as suggested earlier by Shams and Asimpleson.

    I am expecting the vehicle to be back on Thursday, though I have been told that I will get it tomorrow. :p

    Do I need to know anything specific or do anything specific after this timing kit change?

    Thanks for all your inputs, till date. :)

    I got my car back today. The engine noise has reduced significantly and the engine note is smooth.
    The fuel efficiency reported on the MID was around 23-24 when I test drove sedately on Hosur road, which is normal.
    I did not observe any issue/concern.

    However, in spite of extended warranty getting approved, I ended up paying around 7500/-! I am not sure if this is supposed to be normal.

    We, pre-2012 model owners seem to have all the experience possible with the vehicle... The best and sometimes the bad ones! ;):)

    Thanks again to all of you for your advises.

    Well its not trivial amount for a damage of this type, but I think people have spend much more on these issues. Good that you have the car fixed and running so soon. Take care of the Stile MJD. Its one of the best products from FIAT stable. This and the Palio Adventure D. :)
