FIAT BRAVO anyone done a oil change yet

any one done a oil change on the 2.0l Mjet just want to know upfront how to get the bottom cover off and also where abouts the oil filter is and what colour it is to help locating it.. (usually there white could be black though) think im going to change the oil to either some castrol Edge fully syn 5w40 for turbo diesel engines or maybe just the halfords 5w40 fully syn alot cheaper and meets the same standards.. that selenia oil is stupid price..

me lol.. also that first link tells me that it is suitable for BMW WITH a DPF on the first two lines but then if you read down a bit it says its good for VW engines excluding DPF which doesnt make sense so by the sounds of it the 0W30 oil is the best as it meets all the requirements and also is low sulphur and ash content for exhaust systems.. Easy really- because that article was written when fiat

FIAT BRAVO Bravo 2.0 Multijet change oil warning

Hi all I was driving my 2009 bravo yesterday and the little red oil light started flashing saying change oil but I had the oil changed in May when I bought it. Ive only done 6500 miles since then. Is this normal Should the light be flashing so soon I have a 200 mile trip this weekend is it safe to drive it The garage dont have time to sort it out today. Ive dipped it and theres plenty of oil in there- topped it up to be safe too though... What do you all think Thanks

Check the odometer at last oil change and distance to next oil change parameters. Yes 25% degraded shows 75% on scan There are certainly some quirky ways to report on multiecuscan presumably down to the way fiat themselves

FIAT BRAVO Who uses this oil

httpwww.halfords.comwebappwcss...dSalesCmdtab3 Does anyone use this oil and if so is it any good (this is the one halfords told me to get) Or are there better oils out there that any of you brave owners use. Just to let you know i have a 2007 1.4 Tjet Cheers

thats why i am unsure. I have spoken to 2 car parts places today and on there system it says to use a 5w40 diesel oil. the bloke at opie oils says it is fine and there is no difference between diesel and petrol oils. If it says to use ACEAC3 or fiat 9.55535-s2spec oil then surely it doesnt matter what it is aslong as it covers it

Just to give everyone the latest update. I have just got off the phone with a castrol technician and the turbo diesel oil is perfectly safe to use in a petrol car. The oil itself is slightly different as it covers a ford specification aswel but meets all the fiat critera aswel and will not cause any damage to the engine. It even says on there system that can be used in both diesels and petrols. Just thought i would let you lot know incase you see it on offer at all and need some all.

FIAT BRAVO VauxhallAstra Oil in Fiat Engine

I understand that the 1.9 120 and 150 are both shared engines with those that are used in the Astra. Does anyone know if you can use the VauxhallAstra oil in the fiat 1.9 120 and if it has the same spec I am a member of the Vauxhall trade scheme so could work out siginificantly cheaper. Thanks

Same engine indeed. Both fiat and vauxhall recomended oil grade is 5w30 fully synthetic according to autopart system at my work.

FIAT BRAVO Oil Exhausted

So just driving home tonight cars oil light starts flashing away and telling me to change oil. Manual states this is meant to mean oil is exhausted (like that term ) which probably means some diesel mixed in from regenerations and the oil degradation meter has decided it is time for an oil change and amazingly done what it has supposed to it seems Done 12500 I think since last oil change in October

FIAT BRAVO oil

hello all my self and my partner have just bought a 57 plate bravo it is just about to turn 6000 miles i plan to change the oil and filter when this happens what oil does everyone suggest i use. many thanks.

Although good practice oil change is not required for 18k or when the car tells you it is needed. Has it had its first service What I believe most do is change the oil when the service is carried out. My first service was 10k and I had the oil changed at this time Im not sure if the system needs to be reset to be told new oil has been given and the particulte filter cleanedreplaced though.

FIAT BRAVO I I dont think the garage used the correct oil in my 165

My car was in for its first service and I have my suspicions they never used fully synth oil firstly they invoiced me for semi synth then back tracked and said it was a mistake then after nipping round the back of the fiat dealer and talking to the garage they immediatey said it was semi-synth then back tracked when I queried that. fiat are not interested as far as they are concerned they are happy

FIAT BRAVO Daughters Brava Woes

Hello fiat Freaks My thread concerns my daughters 2007 fiat bravo 1.4 Active. She bought this car from Arnold Clarkes in Scotland paid over the odds for it obviously. When she bought the car it came with 4 different low profile tyres fitted. I think the originals would have been Continentals...well there was only one Continental fitted. The tyre inflation kit was used The car is fitted with fiat 17

Hi Malcolm Sorry to hear your daughter has not had the best start the bravo in my opinion is excellent car so without knowing the cars mileage or service history I can only offer my humble opinionadvice. An exhaust is a wear part and depending on how and where you drive the car and your mileage an exhaust will fail my 2008 has just been treated to a full stainless system as the original failed at 50k.

Looking at getting a bravoBrava mainly for motorway journeys Ive always liked the look of them and wanted something comfortable enough for motorways etc. Ive been looking at the 1.2s and the 1.6s mainly as I can afford to insure those.

FIAT BRAVO Need advice before buying Bravo

Hello everyone Im a new member of the fiat forum but not new with fiat I started out with an 1989 UNO 1.0e (45Hp) which was to be honest a pretty terrible car when it came to reliability but it always took me where I wanted (drove it with blown gasket and the oil leaking into the radiator for 40Km parked at home to sleep then woke up next day and took it to the shop). I currently own a 2001 bravo 1.6

FIAT BRAVA 182 Bravo 1.2 16v (2000) shakes and stutters

Hi I have a problem with my fiat bravo 1.2 16v (2000 manufacturing year). First of all I had the car idling and heard small buff kind sound from the exhaust. I noticed that engine runs quite jerky and hesitates to accelerate. It was very annoying to drive home just few kilometers. It felt very jumpy like pumping the gas pedal quickly. Also rpms go up and down when idling. And also the sound from the

FIAT BRAVA 182 Fiat Bravo HGT

Hi guys. Quick question advice highly appreciated Got a bravo HGT 155 and I had the engine changed about 2 months back. Put a semi 5w 30w in new oil filter etc. Drove to birmingham today about 30 miles from mine. And randomly it started blowing some oil through. Does my engine have a pcv valve and would this cause this problem The engine put in had 64k on the clock and seemed to be in very good condition.

FIAT BRAVA 182 Bravo OverheatingLow cooland help

Hey there I currently have few issues with my 1.2 bravo 80sx 2001. Originally the car used to start up with an intermittent missfire and then after about a minute or so everything would be fine. It also judders sometimes when driving at a steady speed. Another problem I have with it is it overheats. Normally the temperature gauge would stay just below half way and on cold days would drop down to about

to my DIY gasket but it isnt severe just a few drips. The missfire on start-up is probably from water leaking into cylinder 4 as that is what I read in a previous post with similar issues and the garage said it was cylinder 4 that was missfiring. Oh well Looks like I get a nice little project to work on for the next few daysweeks depending on when I can make time to fix it. Boy you got to love fiats

To Simon The Pieman I have had a similar issue with my 1.4 96 bravo the car seems to have drop in power after 20min driving.

FIAT BRAVO Timing Chain

Anyone used one of these on their bravo converted to chain Would be hugely interested if you have or if its possible

electromechanical solenoid is powerful enough or quick enough to activate 100 times a second and If they did its working life would be a matter of days. The only way to ditch the belt or chain Is to direct drive the cam off the crank shaft. Which causes problems with overhead cam arrangements. And would probably still be impractical for the multiair Loving this thread as well. If you go to the fiat

FIAT BRAVA 182 Bravo Power

Just wondering what the power output of a 1.6 16v sx engine was its from a 1999 T-reg one Cheers guys

the book figure is 103bhp but peak power figures mean very little. your particular example could have a peak of 80-100bhp. more importantly the 1.6 has 106lbft of torque which is good for a 1.6 and even more importantly the torque curve is fairly flat so you have plenty of usable torque across a good chunk of the rev range that is what gives the 1.6 its willingness from the fiat brochure The Torque

Hello Hope everyone is well. This past week Ive purchased a lovely 2001 fiat bravo Formula SX 1.2. The car is in immaculate condition. Has only 2 previous owners the last of which was an elderly lady who had the car for over 10 years. 67k on the clock. There are only 150ish of these models taxed in the UK. The problem I have is that the clutch biting point is ridiculously high. I&8217ve been trying

If its that age and an unused old lady car then you really should be doing a complete fluid change as a matter of course unless service records say otherwise... Brake and clutch hydraulic fluid ( yes its a shared system with Hydraulic clutch... often gives simple-to-fix clutch problems) gearbox oil and very importantly coolant (system should be flushed too). My similar bravo has had the clutch slave

FIAT BRAVA 182 engine life bravo hgt

just thinkin how long engines got mileage wise its on now 104587 before bad things start to go wrong any ideas

really depends how it is driven and treated. There are coupe 20v Turbo s with very high miles and the turbo puts loads more strain on the engine. Ive been trying to kill my bravo HGt for months now. I never thrash it from cold and always service it regularly. It sounds as sweet as it ever did mines only done 71k but I believe the engine will do 160k miles without compression or wear issues prevention

FIAT BRAVA 182 Overheating - Bravo 1.8HLX

My 1.8L bravo has been overheating for a while. If I drive steady and for not too far (Say 10 miles) it will settle just below the red. One sympton is that the heaters blow cold. I have checked the thermostat and thats ok. The fan kicks in at the right time so thats not the problem. The local garage couldnt check for a Blown head gasket so if anyone has any tips on that please let me know. I have some

Hi Bleed plugs on the 1800 should be radiator top left (header tank side) and on the coolant manifold near the throttle body. If the gasket is blown look for the usual suspects mayo in oil oil and bad smell in water white smoke. It sounds like you have an airlock if the heater is blowing cold and you are sure that the stat is ok. The water system is pressurised so if the expansion tank cap is not fitting properly you will be losing water. Quickest way to check for a blocked radiator is to pull the hoses and put a garden hosepipe in. Make sure you get some jubilee clips first as you cant always get the fiat clips back together. Good luck and let us know how you get on.

FIAT BRAVA 182 HGTs do they drink oil

Hi Just got back the AA report on the HGT Im planning to buy. One of the things noted was that the oil level was really low even though the car had a full service 1000 miles ago - do HGTs tend to be thirsty on oil or is this indicative of a serious problem Apart from that though the report was pretty good needs new front disks coolant system needs flushing and it needs a new battery clamp

well normally the biggest problem is the people who serive it. they do use oil but aslong as its not chucking it out the exhaust in a bluey ting colour then it should run fine. if its been running for to long without oil the engine will be really tappety and sound quite ruff..)

FIAT BRAVO EGR valves has yours failed

OK as the title suggests. A number of people have had problems with loss of power on the mjets (predominantly 150s). Have you had problemsreplacement If so at what mileageage. Mine at 19k 18 months old

cleaner but for the air intake you spray it into the inlet manifold while the engine is running and it dissolves gunk and burns it. You can tell on the first run afterwards how much cack its cleared as the amount of smoke the car makes is shocking Hope my waffling on has helped some of you I did exactly the same on my 2.4 alfa just logged on to see if this would be a similar issue for my wifes bravo.

FIAT BRAVO II 2009 Bravo Overheating

Greetings all first post... please be gentle. Have a bravo diesel 1.6 eco engine which I need to fill up with water every few days or the car overheats. Some info 1 - Have found no evidence of leaks 2 - Overheated once and when I popped the lid the water container was empty. Opened the cap and water flooded back into the container 3 - This week I undid the blue valve on the right hand side of the engine

How is a 2009 out of warranty Have you checked your oil level is it filling up or turned to toffee yoghurt Also the coolant is pink and leaves a lovely pink stain when it leaks outside of its system. As for bleeding the system... all the coolant ports should be open and then fill the system up until the the coolant bleeds out of the ports. then close the ports and fill the bottle to the max line

has the coolant level been dropping bleeding the radiator will not remove trapped air in the system you should try using the bleed screws on the hoses connected to the heater matrix they are higher up so they must be used to relese any trapped air. if you bleed it and then after a few days it needs bleeding again it would suggest you have head gasket failure or a leak. check for any signs of leaking
