    From what I know, this is true only for Linea mjd as the circular from Fiat to replace Timing chain @60K service is only for Linea mjd. It should very much be part of extended warranty for puntos (including 90 hps)

    Fiat is very bad in corporate communications. They lack clarity. It's pretty obvious that the 90HP and the Linea MJD share all engine components and still they give out circulars only for the Linea MJD.

    ^^ I was fed up of this confusion, even the FIAT official i met at the dealership was not sure if it is applicable for the Punto 90. When i asked him, he thought for a bit and said, they both have the same engine so it has to be changed.

    So, i went to the dealership when my car clocked 59K Kms (The 60 K scheduled service was already done by then at 57K kms), told the SA that there is a weird noise from my Engine and insisted that it is a problem with the timing chain. ;)

    He took a look and said, there is nothing wrong. I was adamant and forced them to change it under EW. Apart from the plastic parts (Pads) and partial labor charges, everything else was covered.

    Chains have broken in 75hp Puntos as well, so I wouldn't take chances in any Multijet variant and replace the ENTIRE kit ( Ok i'll put on my flame suit).

    Cheers.

    Have crossed 80K kms and have to do a 3000 km trip any time shortly followed by similar trips during last week of DEC and in FEB. As I have not replaced the timing chain till now am slightly confused whether I should get it done now.
    What are the symptoms of a chain problem. What type of noise do we hear.
    Is this covered under extended warantee?

    Thanks
