While going through the forum , i read about TFI'ans replacing Timing "belts" on their Multijets. That puzzled me a fair bit and got me thinking. The Multijet does not have a timing belt. It has a timing chain, which runs inside the timing cover , under a constant spray of oil or in an oil bath. ( Another reason to not take regular oil changes lightly) It is the "Auxillary belt" which needs replacing every 60,000kms. An auxillary belt is one which drives other components of the engine , like the water pump , power steering pump etc, not the valvetrain ( the camshafts). What is missing in the manual is the desired interval to replace this timing chain in the multijet. The Linea manual simply states on Page 142 as a footnote with an asterisk (*) that - under severe use , replace timing "belt" every 4 years , else every 5 years. Most probably this is a typo , or an incomplete piece of information. Anyone having more information is requested to contribute. Gurjinder. P.S. Any idea who handles technical queries at FIAT India/ FIAPL ?
