    Then I don't think it is required. But do make it a habit to notice the sound on cold starts!

    Hi,

    Whether timing chain is covered under extended warranty?

    Surprised!

    What makes you think that it should not be covered? Many have got it changed under ext warranty!

    Great Ganges. You will love to tame your punto post replacement. I found major difference in pickup & Mileage. On recent light footed drive it returned 23 kmpl of 240 Km trip.

    Was there any noise before replacing timing chain OR scheduled replacement ?

    You have mentioned that you got major differance in pick up

    Coz I also suspect that problem of 'Poor peformance but no ecu error' is related to timing chain

    Some time T chain doesn't emit noise so we neglect it & we beat around the bush
