Re: FIAT PETRA (SIENA) 1.6 Petrol maintaince advise

Go to an official FIAT dealership, show them the partnumbers I gave you, have those numbers verified for your car, and you'll be fine for the next three years....!!

Called up the the biggest Fiat service centre in Mumbai, they tell me that they don't stock the parts as many Palios / Sienas don't come for repairs
I have a lodged a complaint with the Fiat Helpline as was urged by some senior official of Fiat India

By the way i always thought you are from England. Netherlands is a beautiful place to stay. Never been there but heard a lot

Re: FIAT PETRA (SIENA) 1.6 Petrol maintaince advise

Palio's were never sold in the UK, they were sold in Holland, together with the Palio Pick-Up, (the Strada) ,that's a reason why I'm moderator....
The Palio wasn't a succes overhere, only about 3500 were sold in about 6 years, the Strada is a very rare car, only about 100-150 are sold, but it is still available new here....

Consider to order the parts, according to the numbers I gave you, at ANY Fiat, Lancia, Alfa Romeo or Iveco dealership, and go to a mechanic/ workshop you trust, to have it al fitted...!
Thanks rikhav thanked for this post

@ rikhav - have you tried the shops near Opera House in Mumbai? Heard that the shops there store most spares. did you get in touch with Mr Mangesh?

By the way, Thanks a lot Peter for the detailed information provided.

Re: FIAT PETRA (SIENA) 1.6 Petrol maintaince advise

Hi Planet_rocker

Yes, I am on Team-bhp as well and i am not sure who is Mr. Mangesh. I am not so much active with team-bhp

I have been doing rounds of opera house since i wanted a gear lever cable for my car. Even for the timing belts and bearings none have all the parts and also not original. Some ask for the sample of the bearing. What am i suppose to do if that shop says later on that they don't have it after i give them the sample of the bearing?

Belts are too critical parts to even think of using the imported ones (made in Malaysia or nearby)

Peter has helped so much and he knows the Palio so damn well.

Re: FIAT PETRA (SIENA) 1.6 Petrol maintaince advise

Hi Peter
The car is back and the engine shivering problem has gone. So i conclude it was due to the leaking clutch slave cyliner.
Cold start issues still persists as i could not get the spark plugs in time and car was ready. Maybe in few days i will get the same
The Hyundai service center has done a good job with the car specially with door servicing. All though they charged more then usual but i feel its money well spent.
Brakes are also very quiet after cleaning. Not sure how long it will be same as earlier too discs start to make noise after some weeks
Also cleaning of injectors and throttle has helped. Engine feels much more responsive, smooth and less noisy

I have not driven the car. I got this inputs from my brother who is more of a sedate driver who does not like to floor the throttle but has a habit to brake at the very end (a habit which i tell him to rectify due to lack of driving sense in india)

Thanks for all your help

Re: FIAT PETRA (SIENA) 1.6 Petrol maintaince advise

He is also back into active F1

We had this ad coming on Indian television when palio was launched here

Fiat India is phasing out palio in india inspite of earlier saying to press that they are bringing an updated version
My bet is that they are not going to improve the service support for palios as is promised by CEO of Fiat India

Re: FIAT PETRA (SIENA) 1.6 Petrol maintaince advise

AFAIK at the Auto Expo, he mentioned that they donot have any plans to phase out the Palio Stile in 1.1, 1.6 and 1.3MJD - Dunno what will happen to the 1.6 once E4 Norm comes into play from April 2010

Re: FIAT PETRA (SIENA) 1.6 Petrol maintaince advise

Hi Peter
Finally got a Fiat dealer who will do the belt change in my car. All the belts with all associated bearings
They have ordered the parts and will let me know once they have them
One thing they have mentioned in the estimate is a "Strator Bearing"
I really don't have any idea where it is used. When I asked about it to the service advisor, he said its associated with the alternator belt
Can you throw some light on it

Hope your car is doing fine

Re: FIAT PETRA (SIENA) 1.6 Petrol maintaince advise

Peter, unfortunately they dont mention any part number. They just wrote the name of the part in the estimate
Part number I will only know when i go to give my car and see the parts myself

You would have done a full belt + bearing change a few times on your car. Have you come across such part

Re: FIAT PETRA (SIENA) 1.6 Petrol maintaince advise

There are several tensioners and bearings that need to be changed, so I guess it's all right!
