I can only guess from your comments you were replying to my reply / questions not the one from powerplus.

Normally if a belt breaks or strips its teeth then the engine will spin over on the starter motor much quicker than is normal.
If it stopped with a clunk and then wouldn't turn over I fear there is a very strong possibility that the crank has broken, or perhaps the dual mass flywheel has disintegrated.
Under the circumstances I do believe it will need some in depth work to find the problem.

The business you link to would appear to be a decent and well equipped one and I see no reason why they would not be competent to carry out whatever work is necessary.
I can see no advantage to having it removed to a Fiat franchise unless there is the unlikely chance that Fiat will contribute to the cost.

Update

Not made any progress until today.

As the Hess garage cannot liaise with Fiat, they are not agents or a Fiat garage, the Navajo will be brought to Limburg 15 km from here to a Fiat garage for them to carry on. An expensive affair, but there is nothing else I can do.

At least nearer to you Jan to see and decide in front of you. Good luck.

I agree with Ray that it seems a better way to proceed, even at a cost.



Also maybe Heike and hubby, if not mechanical themselves, can find you a knowledgeable person nearby willing to help you in discussing with the garage.


Don't forget the advice to insist on a read-out before they start doing anything. I suggest the read-out is also sent to FIAT for their consideration. As should all reports and photos during strip-down. And copies for you to keep.


Keep us informed, although your posts have got a bit split between forums and threads. Maybe you can consolidate them, or get someone to do it.


Good luck.

No John, that will be done by the Fiat garage when it gets there.

That will make interesting reading I should think.

Hope it's nothing too serious Jan.

As I'm a dyslexic and I've had two stokes you are going to see spelling/grammar mistakes, so please don't act superior and point them out!
