fiat bravo stepper motor

Answers and questions: fiat bravo stepper motor

Im not familiar with the part in question but I take it theres not enough room to get in with a small hacksaw and cut a slot into the head Ive previously been able to get torx heads out by hammering a flat-blade into two opposing notches but this depends on having the exact size of flatblade and it being hard enough. Also if your torx driver is just spinning the head might be too far gone for that.

Sounds like the ecu cables playing up (the covers split somewhere and letting moisture in). WD40 them then seal up with insulation tape

I doubt it is steprer motor problem. On 1.2 engine most common fault is Throttle body position sensor. Fortunately there is no need to change it in most cases. Putting the washer between sensor and engine will probaby solve this problem.

FIAT BRAVA 182 Stepper Motor for Brava

Please Help.. I have fiat Brava Trofeo 2000 W reg. When I start my engine it goes into high accelaration ( 30RPM ). It will remain unless I change gear and release clutch slowly.

If I have to replace Can someone tell me where can I get this Many thanks Srinu.

Hi mate i dunno about this one but you can try www.fiatboo.co.uk as its the specific bravoa forum and some very knowledgable members on both here and there. Try the search function first on it though.

if its a 1.6 then it will definately be the idle speed control valve. remove it then clean it using petrol. This usually sorts the problem out. If this fails to work you need to replace the air temp sensor this is to the left of the idle speed control valve (the sensor on the far right of the inlet manifold closest to throttle body). A scrapyard sensor will do dont waste moeny on new parts. You can also try a scrapyard idle speed control valve if cleaning yours does not work.

FIAT BRAVA 182 Fiat Bravo 1.2 16V idle problem

Hy i have a problem with fiat bravo 1.2 16v 2000. with tartarini lpg. Before 4 weeks car was in service they changed head seal because seal was bad and car was spent 1 liter water per 3-4 days. After that service I have a next problem with idle 1.) When car and engine is cold (morning) car wont start normal i need to manual add a little throttle (gas) and then car start. But then idle fals to 500-600

All conectors is connected but who knows maybe iz something disconnected and I cant see it from above the engine. Today I drive car to service they will change some sensors to find out where is the problem. Yesterday I removed the inllet pipe pipe which connects the air filter and stepper motor. When I was watching the stepper motor flap (butterfly) I noticed that when I want to starts engine the flap

FIAT BRAVA 182 Bravo 1.2 start up problem

Hi dear friends this is my first post in this Forum. I have got a fiat bravo 1.2 16v 80cv of 99 with more than 250k kilometers. Recently my mechanic removed and cleaned the throttle body (it was very dirty) and diverted oil vapor blow from the air inlet duct. Now the problem is that at the start up rev counter indicates 1800-2000rpm and after some seconds they decrease firstly to 1500 and then to 800

FIAT BRAVA 182 Might get a BravoBrava - Help

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. What would you lot (although I would imagine youre all slightly bias) say they are like to drive decent for motorways A comfy cruiser Anything I should specifically

Mainly based on better options being more available. It was known for camshafts being destroyed through oil starvation and not being very fuel efficient since its fuel intection system only used throttle position RPM temperature and Lambda sensors to work out fueling it didnt have MAF or MAP sensors. 1.2s and 1.6 are better engines plus theres lots of parts available both used and new since fiat

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

Hi I often put meths as an octane booster the car runs much better these cars like good petrol and the higher the octane the better. This problem sounds fimiliar.

We have

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.

I found a tear in one HT lead and when I replaced along with nice strong Varta and new plugs

FIAT BRAVA 182 bravo starting probs

I have 2000 1.4 bravo. It seems to have a problem starting. It have to touch the accelerator to get itt to start when turning the key. Is the starter motor if so is it a big job if not what else could it be

Originally Posted by frustrated I have 2000 1.4 bravo . It seems to have a problem starting. It have to touch the accelerator to get itt to start when turning the key. Is the starter motor if so is it a big job if not what else could it be Eh If its a 1.4 then your stepper motor has had it replace with a new one

just replaced the stepper motor with a brand new one that fixed it trying to stall on me everytime i stopped but this starting problem has stayed

sounds like it could be the stepper motorincidently you can reset the ECU yourself by disconneting the battery for 20 minites and reconnecting. haynes manual would cover fitting the stepper motor though there never usually a hard fit

Originally Posted by Deckchair5 ...it will probably be your idle valve or stepper motor or idle pot or idle actuator which are all the same thing. On the coops this can be removed and cleaned with WD40. Something to try before thinking of replacing the part. H

FIAT BRAVA 182 Bravo sx 1.2 1999 over reving

Hi Just looking for advice. Recently the car is reving to 2000 or above when slowing down and about to come to a stop (when the clutch is pressed).

After I put washers I had to reset stepper motor or not Its to distance the tb from the actual motor. In this picture there are 2 moving parts the gear and the disc.

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

been on a diagnostic but the owner gave up when it did not report a fault which makes me think lambda as they often do not report. I also need to re-assess the noise there is a noticable clunk when letting the clutch up and a lot of chatter in neutral I think the gearbox bearing may be shot feels similar to when my Uno went the same way (input shaft) and I see it seems to be a weakness on the bravo

FIAT BRAVA 182 Bravo S Reg 1.4 SE Stalling when idling

Hi all New to the forum so hello. My bravo keeps stalling when idling changing gears or braking. I have sprayed some air intake cleaner inside the air intake. I have taken the air intake off and sprayedcleaned the unit underneath (is this the throttle body). This seemed to make some immediate improvement but Ive just had a phone call from the missus saying that it has been stalling again. Any ideas what it could be and what I can do about it Cheers Drammy

Right Ive bought a new throttlebody and stepper motor and fitted and tested. It hasnt helped. It still stalls when taking foot off the accelerator. Mickeybravo Not sure Ill have a check for that when I get back. There is a spark plug looking light that is quite sporadic. You know the one that youre supposed to wait to go off before starting the engine well that comes on quite often. What is this cause I read the manual but couldnt see how it related to my situation.

FIAT BRAVA 182 Extensive work 1.2 16V Bravo

Calling all good fiat mechanics after changing head gasket getting head skimmed replacing cambelt and tensioner.

FIAT BRAVA 182 Bravo 115 HLX stutters

I have a W reg fiat bravo 115 HLX. Car runs fine but sometimes when the throttle is not fully down it stutters and judders the car kangaroos down the road. Never happens when on full throttle only around half down. Any ideas what this could be as its embrrasing and makes me look like a learner driver.

does the kangarooing happen when you take the foot off the accelerator padal if so than the stepper motor is probably at fault.

Hello Ive got some trouble with the starter motor on my 1.4 12v bravo -with the engine cold.. the car starts fine ( starter turns a bit slow in my opinion) -with the engine warmed up the starter looses all power barley turns the engine( left me pushing the car a few times).

Any thing I can do to bring down the idling speed. now consumes more fuel. Any help please.......
