    Hey Prateek, replace the plug(its called as "tikli" in local garage language) and allow the sealant to dry at-least for more than 4-5 hours for better result.

    I am ready to replace that. Is the labour asked by fass justified 10k?
    They are saying they need to open the whole engine to replace this.
    How much labour you think local garage will take?

    IMHO I don't think they need to open the whole engine to replace thermostat valve. It was done on my car at TASS during TATA-Fiat JV however in my case the coolant wasn't leaking. I was told the valve was gone bad due to Coolant not replaced in 2 years.

    Nothing to do with engine removal to change thermostat. It will be hardly 1-2 hours job to change thermostat. It will cost around Rs. 3000.

    Not for thermostat, check the other part they have mentioned, some dummy cap plug

    BTW why don't you consult a local mechanic for this issue. Bangalore has good local support plus this issue can be dealt by locals too. Check out our Support section for local garage references.

    Prateek, goto Rajesh, he will do it in couple of hours for you. I don't think what FASS is saying is correct
