Most likely the head gasket. I had the same problem with my rover 200. Other signs to watch out for are mayo under the oil filler cap and white smoke from the exhaust where water is combusted with the fuel. You may also notice a loss in oil pressure. Best to get it checked out and fixed before it does actually go. I got around 4000 miles out of my rover before it actually died. But it tends to happen
let me help you out the coupe bravo brava 155 tempra 145 146 delta hpe are all based on the same car the tipo. The engine bays are all the same size a 1.4 bravo had the same amount of space in it as a 20vt coupe. the wish bones are not all the same length but the the subframes are. You can fit any engine from any other tipo based car into any other one ideally you need a whole donor car. Some things
Started off driving the families 1.4 Tipo... then got given a 1.9 TD Tipo when I was driving to Sheffield and back every weekend.. When the headgasket started to fail on that I got my first car... 1998 Seat Ibiza 1.4 Estilo That was written off and from the payout I bought another 1.9TD Tipo with money spare. The black tipo was scrapped when its oil cooler broke and a bodged clutch replacement by Mr Clutch made it too much work to fix.. plus by then Id bought the car below. Tipo Sedicivalvole. I managed a while with just the Tipo Sedici but fuel costs and child seats in 3 door cars eventually led me to buy this from absolutely the other end of the country on the nod from a FF member who had a look at it for me. Marea 1.9 JTD After a while the yearning for more power was strong - so time for the hens teeth.. 2.4 Marea 130JTD And eventually the Stilo was phased out and I fell in love with the new bravo. Bought one straight away.

Just for the record the exhaust manifold shroud rusted off my 1.4 years ago so the intake air is always cold. I havent noticed any difference so perhaps you can just bung it on anyhow. I guess you could theorize that cooler air is denser and the car will hence be more powerful (and less fuel efficient) with the hot air intake bypassed. Mind you why anyone would want to spend time and money modding

unfortunately guys the only way to get NA engines any quicker is big money. Full stainless exhausts including the manifold. re-run the cold air feed to the front grill i put mine in place of the fog light on my 2.5lt MG ZT and the results were fantastic. remember the closer to the road the cooler the air. also you want to make sure the C.A.F is as short as possible. remove the standard air box as there
It almost certainly sounds like your thermostat is not fully operating. This is basically a valve that shuts off the front radiator. If its stuck open then the car will allow the water to fully pass through the front radiator. This is ideal if the weather is hot. however in normal conditions it will mean that the car temperature will be too low. As a result the car will run cooler meaning the ECU will

As standard the 150 is a high compression turbo engine with whats got to be the smallest turbo i have ever seen on a petrol turbo car With the high compression this means that it is still torquey whilst off boost allowing better driving capability BUT this means when running higher boost levels the piston is then under higher extremes of pressure and heat which in long term causes detonation Ide imagine
Firmer steering more responsive throttle and 24 nm (about 11%) extra torque pulling away oomph. Initially I had it on all the time... but I got used to it though and the milage wasnt all that good P ...the I switched it off and only turns it on when I want to have fun... and in this way its way cooler since I really feel the rush every once in a while and dont waste too much fuel when I sit in heavy traffic or just crusing. Congrats on your SPORT button ... I cant live without it Cheers
Originally Posted by ausritmo I always see people change intercoolers to massive ones... is there any advantage other then keeping temps cooler If the temp can be kep at a much lower rate then does that increase performance somehow Thanks in advance... If you are planning on running a lot of boost then yes. The stock intercoolers have plastic ends clipped to the main body. Ive seen these blown off

The coupe and bravo are the same car underneath so expect very similar quarter mile times to a coupe 20VT. You are going to need a lot more than just an engine as gearbox driveshafts roll bars suspension hubs breaks exhausts fuel pump ecu oil cooler intercooler etc. Are all different uprated. Best bet is to buy a running coupe and strip it this way you can compression test engine etc and check for turbo wear. plus get all the required parts. (bulldog) might be the be the best person to speak to as he has done the conversion on a marea which is the same as the bravocoupe here is the thread detailing all the work. httpwww.fiatforum.commarea15374...ld-thread.html hope this helps

Quote from website How does it do that By fooling your fiat cars computer and letting it think that your cars engine is sucking in air at a different temperature. Your computer will respond and increase power utter utter crap. How do these people get away with it Its a 2p resistor (again) which fools the ecu into thinking the air coming in is cooler than it is. If you fit this youre actually depriving
mass airflow meter measures the (effective) mass of air entering the engine. thats used to calculate the correct mass of fuel required to get a complete burn. to calculate mass an air temperature sensor is needed to measures the temperature of the air the mass of air will vary depending on its temperature (cooler is more dense so has more mass) the two sensors are both needed to calculate the required
hell cat you wont need an oil cooler you have an oil to water heat exhanger. td100 does have an ecu but you are right the mechanical pump is the main control of the fuel the ecu I believe is only there to make my life misserable with code and injector errors its no common rail thats for sure. All I know is theat it had to be reprogrammed as it would run fine for miles and it did on the new engine all
Hi To convert to a Turbo engine. The coupe 20VTurbo engine uses the same engine block as the normal 20v. The difference between the two is the internals pistons crank etc. This means that the engine mounting points are the same. Although I think the Turbo has uprated engine mounts. The 20v turbo exhaust bolts straight onto the turbo and the turbo is bolted to the manifold . So No the exhaust wont fit.

Why do want a lower thermostat temo I assume this is not a race car Leave the oil pump as it is yes wou could run an oil cooler with it. Do actually know what you want to do with the car an aim Do you have a budget Rich CRy02 is
