I am really surprised by looking at the thread. So, i thought u are the best person to help me for my sierra.
Let me tell about my sierra. I brought it 1 year back and the car was in excellent condition except few minor problems.
Its a non turbo version.
I had done around 7000 kms on it without any problem.
But from last one month i am really facing a serious problem with the vehicle.
One month back i the belt was broken, so i took it to my garage where i did my minor works. He replaced with a new one and advised me to replace the engine belt also. So, replaced that too also.
But from that the problem started. With in 10 days the belt again broke down. So i replaced it with a new one . Now again with in 3 days that also broke down so, i took it to the Tata authorized center then replaced with a new one. But they told that one of the pulley which is on the side of the ac compressor is not an original one, and that's the reason the belt belt breaks down frequently. They told me that they are also not having the spare part for that.
Again after 10 days that belt also broke down. Then i took the vehicle to my regular garage. I told him a about the issue what the TATA guy has told me. So, he came with a SUMO pulley a tried to fix it by removing the old one. But it really didnt fit on it due to the length problem. So, he fixed that by welding over there.
But again after few days the belt slipped to the side from the pulley. So i called my garage person to fix that. He fixed that but i don't think its a permanent solution. And i am also hearing noise from the belt.
Now with in 1 month i lost around 4 belts. Now i really fear to take this vehicle outside due to this belt problem.
Now i am also feeling that the engine get heated to early after the engine belt change, which was not earlier. As i have taken the vehicle on long drive earlier.
Now i really need your suggestion how to overcome this problem.
I rally need my vehicle on track.
Thanks in Advance.
