  1. Hi, I need a Petrol Hose Pipe from Mouth to Tank for my Fiat Palio 1.6v Petrol. Can somebody source the same in mumbai or chennai as it is not available in Coimbatore. thanks Ram
  2. Hi, I will have the same checked and revert back. Ram
  3. Hi, Got the Crank Sensor replaced. The car is running smoothly but then there is a problem with regard to the missing which gives jerks but as you press the pedal it starts to run. Any advice on that problem. Ram
  4. Ok Noted. I am also checking with my source in Delhi on the parts and the availability. I am getting the pics and price. The price quoted by Delhi for the crank sensor is approx Rs. 1200 - 1300 and for the throttle body it is Rs. 5000. But i am planning now just to go ahead with the crank sensor and then giving it to some other service station and get a feedback from them as to what all has been done and whether the amount charged to me is justifiable. Ram
  5. Hi FRG, Any news on your visit to Opera House on saturday. thanks Ram
  6. Yes, since we all have our work cut out we rely on complete faith of the service station to do a good and proper job for the same. I feel that i should take the car to TAFE who are Fiat and Tata Dealers and see what they say. I have spoken to the GM of My TVS and right from the Regional Manager to the Franchisee Manager have been involved. But looking at the way they have handled this thing, it seems that they are more dependent upon the service station than the other way. I will check if there are any other good engineers who can help me out with my problem or else if you can give me the numbers or details of good mechanics who can solve the problems, pls do give it to me. thanks

    Hi, Maybe it is true, but it all depends on how you keep you car. I treat my car like my baby and ensure that it does not have any problem. I have owned a fiat earlier also and my passionate with the way my car functions. Ram
  8. Dear Dtandon, Thanks and will do the needful. Will also register as you suggested in the palio users group in yahoo. Ram
  9. Dear 5u3zEr0, Further to my earlier post, i forgot to mention that now the car is not starting and the conclusion is that the Crank Sensor has to be replaced and for the missing the Throttle body has to be replaced. The Throttle body misses only when driven slow, when you drive fast it does not stall and move.According to my source in New Delhi for the parts, when i spoke to him today he clearly says that either the crank sensor would go or the throttle body but not both at the same time. I am planning to change the crank sensor and then see how the car behaves, as of now the car is not even starting due to the crank sensor not functioning. thanks, Ram
  10. Dear 5u3zEr0, Thanks for the reply and sharing your experience with me. To answer your questions in order, the car has done approx 55,000 kms, the model is july 2003 and i bought it this year in june end 2009. The previous owner was servicing this car in My TVS and hence i also followed the pratice to maintain parity and continuity. I drove the car for nearly 4 months before giving it for servicing. I put it for servicing in the 1st week of October. That was the first time that i went to My TVS and that i was not present during any of the operations that took place. It was pure blind faith on the reputation of the company. The first problem with the car as analysed by them was the timing belt - Rs. 1475 which was changed along with the Fixed Tensioner - Rs. 2445 and Belt Tensioner - 2455. The labour was Rs. 1250. Rest of the cost for chaning the head lamps, engine scanning charges, new engine front bed plus oil change and wash. The day i took possession of the car the alternator failed when the same was working well when the car was given for servicing. When complained to My TVS they sent the car to another franchisee to rectify the problem. The spares cost was Alternator regulator - Rs. 1900 + Rs. 1200 for Alternator redfire + Rs. 600 for Sports bulk. When after fixing the alternator problem the car started to shudder and stop. When My TVS analysed they said that the Piston and Value has to be replaced along with the head. They had no alternative but to send to the first franchisee who came to the conclusion that the fuel injector had failed and the petrol tank had lost of dust which had to be cleaned. They replaced the same and i was billed a total of Rs. 16000 including labour charges. When i took possession of the car it was perfect and running smooth. How come within 4 days of running and that too only 100 kms could the Crank Sensor and the Throttle Body fail. It is quite surprising and nobody seems accountable for the same. I am also given the explanation that the person who held the car earlier did not maintain this car properly, that rats have played havoc with the wires in the car and hence this problem. I clearly and squarely agree with you that the pleasure and smile that it puts in your face when driving is something that can be felt only by somebody who has the passion and heart for this vehicle. Hope that my Palio is up and running so that i can enjoy the joy of driving a car with a heart. thanks Ram

    Yes, Truly a drivers car. The pleasure of driving can be felt only when you are in the drivers seat.
  12. Spoken to Mr. Shah of Shah Motors, he will come back to me on Monday on the parts only and only if he gets a genuine packed piece. According to him in opera house Throttle body that is being sold is second hand, that has been taken from some other vehicle, cleaned and rectified for which there is no guarantee. I will keep you posted on developments from Delhi also.
  13. Yes, it would be of great help. The part nos are as below : CRANK SENSOR - C 1 4 2 4 7 9 9 7 5 THROTTLE BODY - 4 6 S X F 3 / B 0 0 7 1 2. I will be getting the prices from Delhi in the next couple of hours from one source and the other source would give me the price by the evening. If you are going to opera house then get in touch with Shah Motors - Mr. Mahendra Bhai Shah - Tel # 2388 3333. This contact is from a source in Kolhapur. I will be speaking to Mr. Shah in a short while from now and give you the info on my talk.
  14. Hi, Thanks. What do i do now. I will have to put in a new crank sensor to alteast start the car and making it moving. Regarding the throttle body i can still work out by moving at a reasonable speed so that there is no missing due to which the car stops. I have contacted a couple of people in Mumbai and Delhi for the parts as the price quoted by the service station is very high. My fear is that once i put in these parts and get the car back to driving, maybe some other problem could be highlighted. I am at loss of words.
