hey my coil pack or something like that has packed in. it goes where the distributor normally goes.... anyhoo it got wet and i reckon it needs replacing cylinder 3 isnt firing and its not the lead or plug. it must be this right If i do fit a new one will the engine need to be tuned by a fiat dealer 99 brava 100 HSX with not enough mods

FIAT BRAVA 182 Cracked Distributor Cap

FIAT BRAVA 182 Brava Thermostat

Hi all I am probably going to sound like a completer doon brain But can anyone tell me where the thermostat on a 1.6ELX P Plate brava is located and are they fairly straight forward to change All help greatly appreciated.

I found this old thread and I liked the sound of replacing the thermostat insert rather than the whole housing. I have removed and tested and verified that the thermostat insert doesnt work properly any more. However Im now completely stumped about where to actually source a replacement None of the usual web based parts distributors recognise the Mera TV-170 when I search for it. Has anyone successfully sourced a replacement insert for their fiat 1.6 engine Where did you buy it from Thanks Joe

FIAT BRAVA 182 no spark

hey i am a new fiat owner. i purchased a 78 spider yesterday. its a restoration project. So here is my deal. I get no spark off the distributer at all. i did the screwdriver frame test. same test indicates that no electricity is running to the coil. (new battery has been installed) There is juice running into the coil off one of the wires. i figured it was a bad coil but usually a bad coil will do

Sorry a bit confused. You say indicates that no electricity is running to the coil. (new battery has been installed) then you say There is juice running into the coil off one of the wires What kind of ignition set up is it contact breaker partial electronic LOW TENSION SIDE If its contact breaker then see if theres a flash at the contacts by pulling apart contacts with a screwdriver with ignition on.

well i am havin trouble finding my multimeter so i used a curcuit test light. it showed no current on the cable that runs to the distributer from the coil. So i assume no juice is runnin past the coil. When the contacts are closed then the LT lead from the coil to the distributor is taken to earth youll only see voltage there when the points are open when the lead is then connected to earth through

got in at the car this mornin...the lead to the run point of the distributor was disconnected and the points were pretty crappy. i set the start at .017 and the run at .019. ran some starter fluid in and rolled it over only to have the starter give out. ordered a new one and will go after it again on sunday (probably). i am also havin a hard time finding the fuel filter....any suggestions

so here it is...i put a new starter in...not a fun task i might add. found out my alternator was also shot but i put the old one back for continuity purposes. rolled it over still no spark. the coil has around 7.4 volts running into it (its new). the distributor has new point and a new condenser (i will have to fight the old one off) when it just sits there aint a lot of power runnin into the alternator

FIAT BRAVA 182 Urgent Help Any Ideas

Just new to the forum - but hoping to spend alot of time here because Ihave just today got a brava 1.4s - however I have had a little problem. Can anyone please tell me the timing sequence and also if you look at the top of the engine with the distributor on the right of the engine - i need to find out which lead goes on where. eg. upper front (towards bumper) - goes to number 1 upper rear - goes to

FIAT BRAVA 182 Please help - Engine Backfiring

Hope someone can help - Ive got a 1997 Bravo 1.4 12v. Car has been stood for about two weeks and when Ive come to drive it there is distinct lack of power (No jokes about it being a 1.4 please) and it sounds like its maybe not firing on all cylinders. At low revs it makes a backfiring sound from the engine NOT exhaust but at air intake. Could it be the HT leads or ignition unit causing this and why does it make that noise

Could be a few reasons that come to mind. I am no garage mechanic but have dabbled quite a bit with engines. Yes it could be the HT leads coil or distributor. I am sure there is something you can do with an amp meter attached to each lead to test them. Also check inside the distributor to make sure the contacts are not black ( normally distributors just pop off with two clips but I am not sure how

If dampness is the problem try spraying WD40 or some other maintenance spray over your leads distributor and coil. tchuey69 thanked for this post

FIAT BRAVA 182 JTD boost

hi all i have a 2000 1.9jtd and its as flat as a witches tit. it seems to have got slowly worse i suspect its the EGR stuck open but i wondered if anyone else has had a similar problem the turbo seems to be boosting ok as i can hear it spool up but it sure doesnt fell like its applying any intake pressure at slow speeds. i worked as a fiat mechanic for 15 years but left the very same week the jtd came

Hi Please be careful with Peter Crago from Probe distributors he never sent me the distributor I payed for. I sent him many mail but I never received the part and he never refund for it.

A friend came and help me but he said that the distributor aint getting no current

distributor they dont have a distributor. i think you mean the coil pack. they commonly fail on pretty much all the bravoa range. its an easy fix so be thankful

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

FIAT BRAVA 182 Camshaft And Tappets

I want to change the camshaft on the Bravo (1.4 12v) so ive bought this I also need to replace the tappets when i asked the bloke whos going to fit these parts for me he said that the followers in the kit ive bought ARE the tappets. When looking at these I think hes wrong. Is he do i need to buy the tappets in the above link Thanks.

Youre right - these are only followers not tappets Why do you replace the tappets Are they worn or stuck Also - will you replace the oil distributor Dunno the name but I mean the spider. Plus its o-ring seals of course as they cause the loss of oil pressure in the spider.

FIAT BRAVA 182 Brava running on 3 cylinders

My 2001 brava 100 SX 16v is running on 3 cylinders. Ive replaced the spark plugs which temporarily fixed the prob but after 5 miles power was lost and it was back to 3 cylinders. The EOBD light is on continuously. From reading other probs on this site it seems the injector is the cause. Ive narrowed it down by taking out the HT leads and it seems cylinder 3 is the problem. Ive tested all the HT leads

jug - you surely have a set of ribe bits if anyone cant get them off the shelf go to a sealey or draper tool distributor they should be able to order you some - if they dont know what they are ask for a catalogue or you can order direct. and buy 2 sets smaller bits will get broken.. Owen.

FIAT BRAVA 182 Brava 1.4sx - Car wont crank

Hi All I am seeking for your help once again. Looks like the problem on my 97 fiat brava 1.4sx has come back to haunt me after a year A couple of weeks back I was driving home one rainy day the car just came to a stop at the side of the street. Tried to restart it the engine tries but it did not want to crank (turn over). The next day it restarted again until yesterday it was raining heavily and thundering

I dont understand when you say the engine tries but does not want to crank Is the engine turning over ie cranking but just not starting Or is the starter not turning the engine overat all Have you changedchecked the plug leads Do you have an engine top protective cover on Is that wet underneath Have you tried the car without the protective cover on often itll prevent moisture from actually getting

FIAT BRAVA 182 Overheating

My car for some reason has started to overheat I did notice water running from the rad area at the front i topped up the rad but water did not run out.... I put some radweld stuff in and two bottles of coolent it still over heated but no signs of dripping. I looked under the oil cap and dipstick all clear. I dont know where the bleeding things are to bleed the cooling system.. i think the fan does

First off I dont agree with the tone of Bluejohn but I do kinda agree to his message. Things like a cold radiator while the engine is cooking over are indications of SERIOUS problems. You shouldnt have been driving the car at all. (Even to a garage it would have been better to get a tow) The way he gives his message is not really the best way to do it. But his sentiment of this could have been avoided

FIAT BRAVA 182 Starting engine problem

Hi I recently bought a Bravo on an N reg. Sometimes it will not fire up when you try to start it. The dizzy is producing sparks no problem. I think that the problem is to do with the fuel cut off system. When you turn the key the lights on dash come on then the key warning light goes out and I turn ignition key to the start position the engine turns but no start. Yesterday whilst somebody operated

the thing youre calling a distributor is a coil pack. they dont really cause occasional starting problems. id suspect the lambda sensor could be the cause if it only occurs when the engine is warm.


Been having a look at Celtic Tuning & Angel Tuning and they both offer the CDA and the DIAS - which is the better one to use Yes the CDA is made from carbon but does that really make so much of a difference in performance...

FIAT BRAVA 182 Bravo intermittent starting fault

I have a 1999 Bravo SX which is showing an intermittent starting fault when the engine turns over but doesnt fire. This occurred more in the winter when it was damp and on one occasion the AA mechanic I called out got it going after cleaning out and drying some electrical connectors at the lower front of the engine. (sensor cable) I even got it going myself one damp day by blowing a hairdryer on the

it tells the ecu what position the crankshaft is at and what the speed of rotation is (rpm) which is critical for ignition timing. no signal means no sparks and if your sparkplugs arent sparking it will never start. cars that use a distributor do not need a crank sensor so i guess youve previously owned older cars.

FIAT BRAVA 182 Help urgently needed

Hi Guys Urgently need help with my Bravo HGT147 - starts from cold and runs for approximately 30 mins brilliantly then completely cuts out and will not restart at all. Leave it for approximately 10 mins and it will begin to fire on a couple of cylinders but wont accelerate leave it for another 10 mins or so and it will start and run excellently as before. Red injector light seems to take a few seconds

FIAT BRAVA 182 starting problems with bravo 1.6

i have been having some problems with my bravo lately when starting it the car wont start first time when leave off for a long while u turn the key and nothing happens just a click under the bonnet the engine doesnt turn over either but if u continue to turn the key in the ignition it will start up ok and after driving it for a while its fine. At first i thought that this was the symptoms of a dead

wat about distributor it may need cleaning had similar problem with my last car

where about is this distributor thing located and is the starter at the top right of the engine on the bravo or is it located at the bottom

The Bravo 1.6 doesnt have a distributor does it If the battery is new and the alternator is fine then check for a good electrical earth contact at the battery and engine. Its pretty cold so it puts the biggest strain on batteryalternator and starter motor at ths time of year so poor electrical connections anywhere there wilol show up. Once the car warms up then the dampness disappears so end of problem

FIAT BRAVA 182 spark plugs

Hi Ive just started to experience something like a flat spot when I push the throttle but its not always in the same place or all the time. Is this a plug problem Thanks.

Hi Just change plugs and took it for a spin and did it again when I replace leads do they come off at the end where it would have been distributor cap or are they factory fitted to the cap Also have been reading about over things that might be causing the flat spotdie but they all seem to indicate a backfire as part of the symptons. any ideas as mine is not backfiring. Thanks.

Hi Beefy Yeah the leads just pull off where it would be a distributor but its a bit of a fight. That is actually a coil pack. You can do a resistance test on the coil pack to check its condition. They can cause missfires. Click for bigger image.

FIAT BRAVA 182 Bravo is ill advice

My bravo has all of a sudden become ULTRA-sluggish It was perfect yesterday and this morning it just wont move it wont got above 50mph and it takes forever to get there Ive been flat out all day just to try and keep up to traffic on 30mph roads The engine seems to rev ok but for some reason there is no delivery of power to the car anyone have any ideas what this could be I know what its not the clutch

first couple of possibilities to check Either ECU is in safe mode (although resetting it should have counted that out) Sparks are gone distributors packed in Spark leads have corroded Cam belts slipped and timings now out (if its drinkin petrol and feels sluggish it could well be that) last one as stupid as it seems is check the handbrake cable and brakes arent draggin sounds stupid but it does happen fairly often hope you figure it out Donny

FIAT BRAVA 182 Preparing for winter

Hey guys Winter time is around the corner and this year I plan to be fully prepared to it. What do you think should be done to the car in order to cope with the huge amount of rain and cold itll be getting Maybe putting the rear wiper motor in a plastic bag what do you think Tell me what else can we do engine electrical and body-wise. Thankyou

The HT leads ( each with a spark plug on the end lol ) First use a nice dry cloth and wip any oil muck and stuff of them then from end to end spray the WD40 along the wire to the distributor and allow to dry normally . Also do the same with the coil and anything else you can find under the bonnet with the exception of anything computerised im not sure what WD40 would do to the ECU WD40 is a

FIAT BRAVA 182 1.4 hydraulic lifter died

Hi All My 98 1.4 Bravo has had valve tappet sounds when starting for as long as I can remember but it always went away after a few seconds. But now one of the lifter has died. I popped the cam cover off and I can push the faulty tappet down about 1cm right above the lifter. Its springy. The other ones dont move when I push them down. It seems like the lifter is stuck down. Is it possible to pry the

I was just at the dealer and ordered some. He said the distributor had only 4 in stock at a price of about 14 EUR (110 NOK). Prices here are so insane I wont be surprised if it is per piece but that would make my day if it was a complete set. I ordered all 4 figuring that was better than none. It looks like I only NEED 2 so Im hoping this will sort me out.

Possibly your distributor. It sounds just like what happened to my 1.1. - the onlin...or fiat owners h6 Click here for pictures of my Uno Click here for pictures of my brava h6

not holding out much hope for your engine. The Lampredi engine is a non-safe engine so the valves often hit the pistons and bend when the cam belt brakes. Of course if you have a FIRE then you are sweet with a broken cam belt and they are really easy to replace. If you have the OHV engine then you wont have a cam belt.
