FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 P75 into mpi seicento

ok this is not a thread to ask questions its a thread to say how i did it so there is one place for all the anwsers for someone else ok once i had the 1108mpi block out i set about getting the 1242mpi ready to fit we had decided to go with the seicento micro ecu and loom along with the seicento inlet and TB rather than fitting the P75 ecu loom and TB inlet first off because we used the sei mpi ecu

FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 Brake Hoses Help

Had the sei lowered 60mm there a while back but had to change them over to standard springs for a while. When removing them i noticed the back two brake hoses had been cut but the lowered suspension. They were not severed straight through but were almost the whole way through the rubber bit. Now i am lowering it this week again so was wondering does anyone recommend any new hoses etc cheers Ross

For the rears I used 2 Axel stands to put the rear or the car up wheels off so the rear arms are nice and low (suspension damper still connected though) 1 17mm open end spanner 1 11mm brake spanner penetrating oil light Thats it. (other than I may have the spanner sizes wrong lol) Maybe the Sei has slightly more room up there but all it did was get on my back legs sticking out the rear of the car.

FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 Sei corrosion Brake pipes & body...

Hi Having had my head under our Sei for the first time this last weekend (Im starting to deal with the surface rust underneath before the winter weather appears. Noticed some concerning areas however it appeared to be mostly surface Ill have to remove all the wheel arch liners and deal with what I find. What is the best rust stuff to paint on is it POR15 Blasted expensive but looks the bees knees -

Probably be just surface rust easy to deal with Just wire brush back the worst of it and then clean over with a mild degreaser (fairy liduid and warm water for example) then coat in waxoxyl cheap(ish) underseal. Thats what Todger and i have done with my car very cheap to do. The black colour of the waxoxyl wouldnt be seen in the arches either and will provide plenty of protection. As for brake pipes

Yes done it to pretty much all of the arm bolts. Even undoing them slowly They just burnt the WD off. Crazy. Note for anyone else this happens too dont stop. They will seize . Rear beam is painted up and almost ready to go back on Just waiting on a few more parts to get the hoses and pipes into position. Need to wirebrush and underseal it all up first though. Thanks X

FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 engine swaps

Starting with a single point injection Cinquecento or seicento sporting(mk1) 1108cc The easiest swap and the most effective in terms of outlay is to swap an 1108cc Sporting engine for a 1242cc 8 valve Punto 60 engine. heres the specs comparison 1108 54 bhp 5500 rpm 63 lbft torque 3250 rpm 1242 60 bhp 5000 rpm 75 lbft torque 2500 rpm whilst the 1242cc doesnt appear to be a great increase the torque

When I fitted a matrix to a Cinq the heater hoses went straight onto the matrix pipes and I used hose clips. This is a Sei and the set up is different. There are factory fitted metal pipes on the heater hoses which are shaped to fit over the ridges on the matrix pipes. The metal pipes have holes in the sides to allow thin metal strips to go through and secure around the ridges. The cable ties I fitted

FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 Cinq 1.1 Sporting with Punto 1.2 MPI

Hi writing from Norway... Been a member for some time had a few Puntos. Just bought a -97 Cinq Sporting as a project with no engine in.. but has got a spare one from a Punto SX. This is complete with keys wiring ecu and everything. Seems to me (by searching the forum) allmost all are using 1242 with SPI ...Why not use MPI and get more power Will the wiring cause any problems I have planned to use the

Originally Posted by woj Leave the SPI engine loom in place you will only need to cut the injector wiresplug and connect the four plugs for the MPI injectors this will just work as it is a batch system. One other wire that may give you a headache is the CTS plug but also simple to fix (not sure if your donor engine has two CTS or one). Use the MK1 Punto ECU (unless it has ECOL written on it but I doubt it since the donor car is 98). Keeping the SPI loom will let you place the ECU in the designated place under the good the Punto loom is totally different layout. Mechanically it is also simple one thing I struggled with was that the 1.2 engine is taller and some water pipes were just too short. And then there is the exhaust things to sort out. CTS plug fit without problem (only Palio have 3 pin plug) water hoses should be extended (connection with inlet manifold are in diferent place) or find waterhoses from seicento 1.1 MPI it fits straight one thing more better if donor (punto) has no power steering .

FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 Strange Coolant Problems.. .

Hey guys as with pretty much everyone on FF I too have come across a coolant problemheater problem. After running my Sei for a bit the coolant light comes on.. Now Ive bled the system correctly by opening the bleed screw on left hand side by the headlights and the bleed screw coming from the bulk head (Heater matrix perhaps) and turning on the heater.. Now this is were my logic flies out the window

sorry mate had to get that one in was to good an opportunity to miss lol - The headlight bleed screw fills up with water - good - The bulkhead bleed screw doesnt fill up with water - balls - The heater doesnt blow warm air - balls - The hose coming from the thermostat housing is cold (when coolant light is on) - hmmm dodgy thermostat - Fan doesnt kick in - dodgy fuse dodgy rad sensorswitch thing dodgy

Originally Posted by hf turbo sorry mate had to get that one in was to good an opportunity to miss lol so u now have water at both bleeding points any hot air inside do both pipes going to n from the matrix get hot do all coolant pipes get hot is the fan kicking in if not try bridging the connection in the wire going to the rad fan switch with a paperclip.. if the fan starts you know thats ok chances

FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 Is the Cinq an Endangered Species

Is it just me or is the Cinq becoming rarer and rarer The Old Cinq contingent seems to be gradually disapering even Custard is leaving the fold Also there seems to be an alarming number of cars that seem to being wrecked nicked or being broken for spares (but can I find an Abarth front bumper and side skirts in Broom yellow No ) Plus no one seems to be doing mental things to their Cinqs at the minute

Im still here and I still have my Cinq in fact may upload some updated pics later of some new stuff i have done.

FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 overheating and fan problems

Hello everyone I know this topic has been exhausted but maybe the variables in my situation are different...so bear with me please. Alright so the day before yesterday I go to this specialist and we flush the cooling system give it a good rinse and put it back together with the coolant hose adapter for my newly acquired temperature gauge. Next we leave the motor running and wait for the fan to kick

working fine all water pipes feel hot and the thermostat is opening since the top radiator hose is hot. In addition the system was flushed and cleaned (thats when my problem started) - The fan turns on if I short the switch that goes to the temp sensor mounted on the radiator and looks to be in good working condition. - The radiator temp sensor switch was replaced yesterday with a new one from fiat

FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 Temp gauge wiring

Hi guys. Put a temp gauge in my seicento the other day it works but doesnt read the correct temperature. The gauge itself has 3 wires negative positive and one for the sensor. Maybe the wire I used for the sensor is too thick As if Im correct the heat transfers up the wire and into the gauge somehow I havnt a clue how to set it up right any ideas Thanks

Originally Posted by Bnmtuning Thanks for the replies. Everything is wires up as it should the temp is reading around 60 give or take but nothing more. Now theres a little screw on the adaptor (on the hose) and Im going to try & ground this and see if that helps. Best way to route wires through to inside of car If youre using an inline adaptor its absolutely essential you ground that screw. Normaly the sender wold be grounded by the engine block in a pipe adaptor the rubber hoses isolate it.

Follow the good advice given above at first I thought you were refering to chinq and gave you info on that vehicle sorry much more experienced people than me on the Sie S that can help you still 1-6 info should be ok. 1.Inspect the hoses going to the rad for the type of retaining clips used if they are factory fitted get the correct size jubilee clips. 2. Make sure you have enough antifreez and a bole

FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 Throttle body help needed

Right Im installing my new throttle body and theres an extra pipe and I cant find the hose it should connect to According to guides it was the map sensor take off) or something.

FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 my cinq is dying

was given a k reg cinq a little while ago as a present was running ok until 3 days ago ive got two problems 1 it seems to like stalling for no reason does it when im slowing down or idling but more so when cold when this happens i get the engine warning light and the spray light come on and 2 this morning my brakes lights seem to have decided to pack up spontaniously had to walk to work so was wondering

Not a wire a vacuum pipe for the map sensor. Needs to be on the brass bit sticking out from the end of the rubber tube on the side of the TB . Undo the rusty hose clip. Take off the the little bit of rubber tube. Chuck it away. Get new clip. Attach it to the hose. Fit the hose. That will sort a lot of your problems. Your car is getting air from where it shouldnt and the map sensor is not working. Cheers D shell2902 thanked for this post

FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 1242 engine swap

looking at the faq for the swap it says use sporting gear box is there a reason for this ie a better gearbox or is it to do with clutch was looking at a punto in the breakers and it had a hydraulic clutch is that the same on all models cheers

Quote Buy a Haynes or Porter manual. The procedure is covered quite well in there. Potted version Drain oil and water - dispose of in an environmentally friendly manner. Remove exhaust manifold and front pipecat section. Remove intake manifold and throttle body. Remove gear linkages - unbolt the front one and pop the balljoint of the rear one. Remove the speedo cable from the gearbox end. Remove driveshafts

FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 punto 75 engine conversion parts list )

right i have just dont this conversion on my cinq so here goes you need the code box and matching key for the ecu you need to make up a spacer that goes between the inlet manifold and TB or you will end up with the bonnet not closing if you have a strut brace you will have to bin it or mod it as it will rub against your airbox you will need to splice the 4x2mpi injector wires together in to the 2x
