Make sure they are from a 1.2 16v or 1.4 16v. An 8v starter is too underpowered for these cars CFREITAS thanked for this post

hi guys i found that fitting a 1.6 16v starter works perfect on the 1.2 16v

More than likely a relay tripping.Had this before.If it happens again tell her to shut door and lock as normalwait 10 secs then unlock and try again and should hopefully solve probdid with mines fiats are renowned for bad electrics and the new bravo is no exeption.Ive had my 08 since new last April covered just shy of 6k and had all sorts of trouble.Newest 1 being lights popped at the heater controls
I think the problem is not it being bad news more a case of noone having anything useful to say. The coolant circuit should be pressurized as its a pressurized system. I find it rather strange there is fuel getting past a sparkplug. Have you checked your timing belt Are all cylinders getting fuel (Are the sparkplugs wet) Have you checked the earthing connections Have you checked if all plugs are sparking Mandi bravo thanked for this post
Im not certain of this but the 1.2 may not have rockers. Sometimes the cams act directly on the valves as in most motorcycle engines. So in that case you would have a cam cover which is basically the same thing. Your non-starting problem might be a faulty crank position sensor. It seems this is not entirely unusual on fiats . Ive just taken delivery of one for my JTD which has been refusing to start since tuesday. Mandi bravo thanked for this post

mines been ok while cold wet and windy. the stilo was a strong starter. sometimes they can give a slight pause dont know why it just does starting problems for me would be -6 outside sat in a saxo listening to the starter motor flying over and battery getting flat and kicking into life just before its about to give its last few turn overs
when starting cold dont force it to start abort a failed start and try again instead of keeping the starter turning until it catches.
Originally Posted by Tad-bravo when starting cold dont force it to start abort a failed start and try again instead of keeping the starter turning until it catches. I dont need to force mine to start. It starts fine just with what appears to be a hesitancy. Ill turn the key and after a half second or so it kicks in to life. But as it kicks into life it then seems as if its going to stall again but
Hi BRAV-OH there really is no need to concern your self about this it is normal my 1.4 does the same thing. it starts but does sound like its gonna cut out. fiat benfield have looked at my starter and said theres nothing wrong with it all it will be is with the weather getting colder there is slight moister on the starting motor which couses this. if your car is like mine once the car is warm it starts
its on the back of the engine on the bottom and is a right to get too lol

I think i may have found it and yes it does look a bugger to remove. will taking out the starter motor and giving it a clean help. I think the starting pin is getting stuck in the fly wheel which means it doesnt start all of the time. And do you know if you can clean the solenoid easily
sorry pal never cleaned 1 i only know where it is due to taking my head off sorry i couldnt help anymore. tmrmitch thanked for this post
cleaning wont help the solenoid will be faulty. its time for a scrapyard stater motor.
