FIAT BRAVA 182 Fuel Level Sensor Stuck

Hey all just got meself a 98 fiat bravo 1.2 16v SX and have had no problems until now The fuel level seems to be stuck on empty even when I fill up. I have also seen the needle jumping up and down the gauge. Any ideas on how to fix it Is there any way to get to the level sensor Cheers.

Tap the dashboard it should be ok then. If not the contacts inside the dial are loose you will just have to take it out and clean the contacts. There are few posts on the forum about how to clean the contacts.

FIAT BRAVO Fuel gauge rarely shows totally full

Hi all Im new to the forum and am after a bit of advice please. I have a 2008 bravo 1.6 diesel multijet. On quite a few occasions when filling with fuel the gauge will never read completely full. Even if I let the fuel pump click off several times the needle still only gets up to appx 7 8ths or so of what it should do. This is not every time but happens more than it should- certainly the last two fills

Welcome to the forum. Priming the fuel pump will take away fuel from the tank and since the level sensor is in the tank priming it once or more times will not make any difference. Did you get the car new or SH is this a new problem Do you use the same service station and the same pump when you fill it up I suggest that at your next fill up you let it fill up on auto and then very carefully add some

FIAT BRAVA 182 bravo 1.2 16 valve 1999 flat spothesitation

hiya everybody . ive got a neigbours brava here with hesitation flat spot tied putting the launch on it it gave me a code p1143 (if i remember corectly) i tested the lambda sensor the heater is ok but the o2 sensor voltage was .0mv at all rev ranges the voltage is comming at 480 mv from the ecu ime going to change the sensor anyway but is there any other issues i should be looking for just thought ide run it by you guys before i make a move.... ....shuggy....

fitted in at this point that would be 180 out on the crank if the timing was to be set with no1 at tdc .but it would be clipp ing vaklves big style if it were out that much so i guess the timing is ok were to go next a.a pin out test the car is running fine now at idle it will rev out great no problems there but as soon as its put under load the car just boggs out . in the world of non fiat

dont guess the timing is ok. what did you use to time it a compression test would be very useful now. Originally Posted by shuggy the car is running fine now at idle it will rev out great no problems there but as soon as its put under load the car just boggs out. that is what happens when you have poor compression so timing is still top of my list.

FIAT BRAVA 182 Fuel question

Hey guys I noticed that whenever my Brava is a bit low on fuel (a bit above the last white dot on the guauge I never let it go below) the car sounds a bit rough and sluggish a little bit slightly noticeable. When I put in more fuel and wait for a little while before I start it again everything gets back to normal and the car runs as usual..... From time to time I put in a bit of Redex and all is normal

clean and then drain the fuel tank to clear all the dirt out. to reverse the pump you should depressurise the fuel system then remove the fuel outlet pipe near the engine and place it in a container filler with clean petrol. turning the ignition on should activate the pump it will pump constantly in an attempt to build up pressure this will clean out the filter. i havent tried this method on a bravoa

FIAT BRAVA 182 Bravo Issues

First introductions been into Alfa and Lancia for some time however daughters first car gives me an opportunity to revisit my youth (er right) as I had many a fiat 127 Strada Tipo etc. Wifes car is a 145 so not in unfamiliar territory but the bravo is so much more accessable. I fix all my own Alfas but the bravo has me a little stumped 1) uneven idle and injector light on probably the lambda as everything

both the idle speed actuator and the MAP sensor on the inlet manifold were changed by the previous owner replaced with brand new parts I even have the old ones in the new box. I did not do an ECU reset after doing the temp sensor but I did a full one only a few miles before after doing the lambda . The only area I have not explored is the fuel pressure regulator that sits in the fuel tank although it runs ok it does sound similar to an old X19 I had when the float level was wrongly set. I have not looked at this as it would have no bearing on the cold start issue so discounted it the only other thing to experiment with would be to take off the crankcase ventilator to see if that has an effect. Will fiddle again this weekend I have three Alfas and none have been as much of a PITA as this bravo.

FIAT BRAVA 182 my fiat bravo is running erratically

bought my bravo last week off a family friend she had owned it for 6 years with no problems i then started to drive and filled up at the petrol station with premium unleaded the next day i started the car and it was ticking over high at 1500 revs and was difficult to drive as the tick over remained high even as the engine got warm there are no warning lights showing on the dash board i have since found

There are some very good advisers on the board and a few of them are in this string...and Im not one of them. But when I got my first bravo 1242 16v CF3 I had problems too. Check your plug colouring to see youre getting a clean bang check the HTs and coil and battery &8211 for a new owner it might be an idea. I found a tear in one HT lead and when I replaced along with nice strong Varta and new plugs

FIAT BRAVO Dashboard lights

Does anyone have a scheme to keep the dashboard light always on even if the headlights are off Id like to have my dashboard lights always on because sometimes its hard to read the speed. Ive taken a look at the e-Learn but I couldnt find any thing about this subject. So if some one has a clue on this subject Id be most obliged.

FIAT BRAVA 182 fuel injector light and other electrical demons

hi im new to this forum but from reading it you all seem very helpful and full of knowledge so here gos i have a fiat bravo 1.6 and as im accelarating slightly usually the fuel injector light will flash on but as soon as i accelerate a little more or brake it gos out ....usually this will result in a judder of the engine also. and just lately im having this problem of when i slow down from a high speed

first the brake light check your fluid level when the fluid gets low the light will come on sometimes (usually when going roung corners or braking hard). on a 1.6 its always tempting to scream injector failure (or coil failure) but in this case it does not sound like the injectors or coil pack are the problem. the main clue for me is the engine cutting out. when slowing down the injectors do not inject

OK. Well... my car is re-mapped because the chipping thing didnt look right to me especially a cheap chip all it does (if it is a chip and not a resistor) is over-fuel the motor by fooling it electronically. It might pass the MoT with the chip removed or the over-fuelling may have caused bore - wash where oil is washed from the cylinder bores by high levels of fuel leading to high oil burning. Can

I would normally suggest getting the system interogated but I am not sure what protocol a V reg will be. Might be worth having a look at the resistance of the temp sensor assuming all levels still correct. Cheers SPD

FIAT BRAVA 182 Fuel injector light HELP

FIAT BRAVA 182 Brava miss fire.

Hi all I have a 2001 1.2 brava 80sx. Its been a good little runner up until recently. The car started to miss fire under load about a month ago ( engine management light flashing then staying on ) so I did some research and replaced the coil ht leads and plugs and it ran spot on until now. Its started misfiring again So I replaced the air filter hoping this was the problem but hasnt cured it. I had

Heres an update. I removed the TB and cleaned it out ( it was filthy ) and the car idles fine now. Driving the car is now miss firing again ( especially after over run ) and is using a LOT more fuel than it did. It also kicked a load of this out of the exhaust ( see picture ) Thank you for all your inputs and advice. __________________ fiat Forum Useful Links Donate to FF    Buy FF Merchandise

FIAT BRAVA 182 Brava Stalling Problem HELP

Hi I have a fiat Brava 1.2 2000 X Reg only owned for 1 week. My problem is that I can go for about 12 miles with no problems then all of a sudden when I come to a stop ie junction the car just stalls on me. At the same time I noticed that the petrol gauge soared to full then slowly dropped back to fuel level in tank then yesterday the same thing happened again but this time the fuel gauge went to empty

FIAT BRAVA 182 my car lost

my car has lost it ump it is very slow at pulling away and iv had it up on the ramp and i cant figure out wot it is

i made a straight through exhaust for my 1.6 bravo (downpipe back) and it didnt like it one bit. ive made exhausts for several cars and never seen an engine where back presure made so much difference in my life. putting the cat back on made a bit of difference but i ended up going back to the full original exhaust which improved performance and fuel economy a lot. still i wouldnt assume samanthacoopers

FIAT BRAVA 182 Brava 1.2 new engine wont run

Help and advice desperately needed... I picked up a nice cheap Y reg Brava 80 with fogs alloys etc but an engine that had apparently seized at 106K miles. The owner and his garage say it did run briefly afterwards (AA started it) but would then seize again. Got a matching 31K basic Brava engine from a breakers via the internet was assured that they checked it ran before they removed it. Both engines

what is the chance of the old engine and the new one both having the timing out in a similar fashion causing the same problem. if anything you can rule out the engie and everything else that was changed over including any sensors attached to the engine. i agree the crank sensor is likely but that should show up on a diagnostic with an obvious fault code (although any diagnostic tool other than a fiat

FIAT STILO Blue smoke on cold start

Hey guys Looked through a few of the threads on here and not really sure of any definitive answer...but basically on a cold start my JTD (16v multijet) will let out a puff (fairly big) of blue smoke.

I only bought it a few weeks ago so has a 6 month warranty (hopefully anything needing attention will be covered)

FIAT BRAVA 182 Engine Management Light Temp Gauge

After driving for about a hour tonight in my 1.6 bravo 100 hlx the engine management light came on and the temp gauge dropped from about half way up to the C cold indicator and then began to fluctuate as we drove on. Any ideas and i would be extremely grateful thanks in advance

I suppose it might affect the ECU regulation of the fuelair mixture as engine is always coldcool running rich Probably affect engine in the long run Not a particularly difficult job (correct tools always does a Haynes Manual). Most important of all have lots of patience. It can get frustrated at times. This is what I can remember when I had a go myself 1) Drain coolant removal of coolant

How old are the plugs are they the gapable type if so they may need cleaning and re gapping or new plugs. You could have the early signs of a coil problem or it may be and engine managment sensor on the blink what does your engine temp read when it refuses to start stright away is it on the cool side if it is then maybe you are over fueling as the ECU thinks the engine needs some for want of a better

FIAT BRAVA 182 Brava wont pass emissions (NCT)

My uncle has a 00 brava 1.2 for the last 8 years and in that time the car never had problems passing the emissions test (NCT) it keeps failing on the co low idle is reading .67 where as .50 is the limit lambda is reading 1.00 which indicates that it is working . So far we checked the exhaust for leaks air intake for leaks changed the plugs and cat but still wont pass we plugged the diagnostics into it but no codes came up . Any ideas would be much appreciated before i pull my hair out over it

The max the car is allowed is .50 CO on a low idle Youve got .67 When your getting the lamba to read the voltages should be moving up and down from 0.01 to 1v some are .1 to .9 Showing the car is seeing and altering the fuel mixture level If the voltage is simply Stuck at 1v itll be running richer then it should im assuming been a 2000 its a not got a pre and post cat It could be a Dead lamba to me

FIAT BRAVA 182 Brava 1.8 misfire- what am i looking for

My mate has a 1.8 brava late model w i think. anyway it has got a misfire when pulling off is fine on idle and no warning lights and recovers at speed. apart from the usual (HT Leads) what should I be looking for I understand that this engine uses coil packs one for each cylinder. If it was a pack would the light come on Also if it was an injector fault would a light come on

cheers jug had a look and its misfiring from starting and through the rev range to 4000rpm then fine. No engine management light or injector lights so to test that system i unplugged the MAF sensor (i think- in airflow pipe and connected to ignition wiring) and created a fault critical to performance and got errors on the dash so that system works. Plugged it all back in and faults cleared immediatly
