  1. I got it done at Harish's pride cars, there is electrician named Vinod, I like his workmanship a lot had to wait for 2-3 weeks to get this done as he was pretty busy.
    Why don't you drop in once to hear how it sounds?

    Sat,

    P.S > Copyrights for your punto will be violated :D

    Car is going for Timing chain replacement at pride cars.

    One basic flaw in Punto/Linea, 4th glow plug wiring harness comes in contact with MAF sensor plastic housing and gets damaged in the process.

  8. Got the car back yesterday after timing chain replacement, feels like car car in run-in period, engine sounds little boomy when pushed to north of 3 k rpm.
    After looking at the driver pulley and driven pulley, these item s doesn't need a change,I just wasted some money on it, just the timing chain tensioner and the plastic guide is what needs change.

    My car can take some few thousand kms before it becomes free of tight timing chain.:mad:

    Sat, where did you purchase the timing chain from and why did you decide to change it , was there any rough noise during idling etc ?

    How many KM was your car at ?
  10. I got all from 99 RPM, yes timing chanin had expanded causing noise, my car has done 53K kms.
    But after looking at the Pulley, it can easly last 2 lakh kms, there is no need to change it. My car feels like it is still in run in period now:(
