is a bad idea and non starter in my opinion. All the debris will fall into the engine and destroy it. It would only take one tiny bit of material to destroy the inside of the engine. If its broken like this. You can use a easy out bolt remover. Some people say hammering an allen key in also works but you would need a long one. __________________ Parts Wanted. I will consider any new original fiat
back again ok i never gapped the plugs i bought the set that going by info on here need the 0.8 gap (well i must have because the old plugs in the box here have the same part numbers lol) and will be looking to get that done tomorrow as after been sat over the weekend when starting for the first time its not running on all cylinders until i give it a bootfull in 2nd gear then all is fine so far just wanted to ask is that normal symptoms or is there a coil fault occurring asking because all has been so well for so long now and the other fault i had was the key code light randomly coming on and not starting the car i switch of and on a few times till it goes out then its ok (i have started another thread on that and also read another solution that it could been faulty ignition aerialwire or something) see here httpwww.fiatforum.combravo-brava...-no-start.html thanks
I just changed the plugs on my Y-reg 1200 brava used the DPRC8E-N following extensive research. Actually I didnt gap them because everyone tells you theyre already pre-gapped. And I couldnt find my feelers. Anyway the car runs really nice now. Its confusing because the older engines use the twin-electrode plugs which you would think are more advanced. The newer engines have 4-hole Bosch injectors instead

whelcome to the forum you should be able to get new cables from any good car parts shop they are not a fiat dealer(garage) only part. if you want to search the web or ebay for some we call them HT leads ot spark plug leads here. these people may have some httpwww.shop4parts.co.uk edit i dont think there is a bravo 1.3 here 1.2 and 1.4 and bigger

Take it to a fiat garage or local garage who can plug it in for a diagnostic. Its the best way of finding the fault. It could be a number of things. Itll save you time and money in the long run.
Ok found some info all I need now is the plug gap will some kind person take a gander at there manual cheers. For people using the search engine fiat brava 1.6 100 sx 2001 petrol 95 octain Oil -30c to 30c sae 5w40 -20c to 40c sae 10w40 Full sythetic. spark plugs Champion RC10ycc NGK BKR5EZ Bosh FR8DE
Tbh the spark plugs should be already correctly gapped. If you match the right ones e.g Bosch up to your model and year then they should be gapped already. 1.6 uses 10w40 oil

Sure they will work if you dont gap them but not correctley.
Well sorry for being daft. Heres what is in the manual. spark plugs Champion RC8BYC (gap not adjustable) or Champion RC7YC Gaps Champion RC8BYC - Not adjustable Champion RA4HCX - 0.8mm Champion RC7Y or RA4HC - 0.7mm EDIT The RA4HCX and the RA4HC are for the 1.2 engine. So I guess that leaves you with the one that isnt adjustable or RC7Y which has a 0.7mm gap
get one of these httpcgi.ebay.co.ukSYKES-PICKAVANT-T-HANDLED-FLEXI-spark-plug-SOCKETS_W0QQitemZ130243204639QQcmdZViewItemQQptZUK _Hand_Tools_Equipmenthashitem130243204639&_trksi dp3286.c0.m14&_trkparms72%3A168966%3A265%3A12 39%3A1240%3A1318 and insert the new plug using a length of hose so you dont crossthread them then tighten to specified torque using socket

Its still running on all 4 cylinders but plugs deperately need replacing.

Ill second that about the plug access.My tip for removing them is to use one of the old ht leadsonce the plug is screwed fully out push the ht lead back over the plug and youll be able to lift the plug outand
mine doesnt have plastic on top so i guess its BKR6EKC but still i gotta be sure its a brava engine and im pretty positive there is a fiat web site in which u enter the car and engine serial number and it lists all its spec anybody know that website
you may be having trouble finding the supersprint manifold because you are searching for a header instead of a manifold. if you go to the supersprint website and then select fiat then select bravo 1.6 you will see the full exhaust system is available including the manifold (thats the header -which is part number 813701 ) httpwww.supersprint.comhomeuk.htm im sure it will be cheaper for you to go to

Right.. lets look at this logically we know the timing is ok. If plugs are sooty and idle poor it suggests overfueling or inadiquate air getting to the combustion chamber. So lets look at issues relating to the head change 1 Are the spark plugs from the original engine as others could be gapped wrong 2 Are there any air leaks split hoses or wrongly piped hoses Is the induction manifold bolted up tight
spark plug gaps are very much pre-set these days so out of the box gaps should be fine.
Handy place to obtain plugs and info about them at httpwww.sparkplugs.co.ukpagespr...sngk_apps.htm Unless you have the double pole type plugs which are non adjustable then the standard single pole plug gap for yours is 0.8mm

Hi spark plugs and even leads are items that should always be serviced so if they have not been done in say 24 odd thousand miles i would definately be thinking about changing them
Hi Any idea what the gap on the plugs should be brava 1.2 16v Thanks
