Yeah, I just spoke to Mr.Kamath. He too has read this thread.

Actually he agreed with Jaggu as in #53. He doesn't suspect any damage inside. He has ordered for a replacement crank shaft. He will open the engine further only after receiving it. I will visit when that happens.

He feels it is just a question of resetting everything back.

samurai, i couldnt really make out the damage on the crank from here,

but, if the rotation of the crank was off thentheres a good chance of bearing damage as well, imo if there any any white metal/support bearing for the shaft ( i dunno i've never opened one of these), check them out, else the new crank you fit in will be gone soon

i would strongly advise you to at least get a compression test done, if you dont wanna open and inspect the pistons & liners.

Today I visited the service center for an update. The crank shaft has arrived and they are going to get the engine down starting this afternoon. This being a busy season and all, it is going to take 4 days. This is a big problem since my BIL is getting married in less than a week. BTW, his brand new Alto had to be left at the same service center to fix a damage on the door, that takes 3 more days. Therefore Mr.Kamath gave me a loaner WagonR until I get my Baleno back.

Regarding the Baleno problem. The damage appears to be contained as of now. Although the bolt is broken at the tip, the flywheel is still held in place because secondary set of 5 bolts around the main shaft. When the center bolt got broken, the flywheel started wobbling. When the flywheel wobbles, the tension in the belt reduces and it probably started slipping. That explains the loss in power.

Once the engine is opened I guess we will learn more.

BTW, if the probem happened because of defective part, Maruti will replace it for free, but who pays for labour charges considering it is out of warranty?

Whenever I have had a warranty job done on my car, no matter what job, I did not have to pay for anything. I think when you get something done under warranty, you don't have to pay anything, right?

the problem here is that the warranty has expired, but Maruti are still covering the cost of the parts as goodwill. They are not obligated to cover this repair.

However, clarify with the dealership and find out how much the labour would be anyway. I don't think it would be too much.

Since it involves opening up the entire engine I think it will cost a bit.
