Crank for Alto

Recommended Posts

Engine Block for Maruti Alto

Recently my Alto met with an accident and some minor dents were to be repaired. The car was all repaired and was ready to be delivered. As soon as my brother inserted the key and tried starting the car,it made some noise from the engine area and didn't start. While checking it was found that the crank was broken and needs to be replaced.

Now the maruti people say that the Crank is not available for this car and hence i have to get the whole lower engine block replaced(whole engines except the tappet cover,engine head). The approx expenditure was initially 20k, while after this new development it is raised to 55k.

My car is Alto LX 2002 model.


#Can the Cranks be repaired and made reusable (due to unavailablity of new one) ?

#Is it advisable to replace the whole block for this much old model?
