FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 fitting a airfuel gauge to turbo

Ok so the work to get the turbo to what i call finished continues. At the mo looking to fit a few gauges namely water temp oil pressure & airfuel mix. Im not sure whether theres any point fitting a gauge desined for narrowband lambda and connecting to the standard sensor. Or whether i should be buying a wideband lambda and gauge. I have read alot and im more confused than when i started now. Car is

thats what im asking custard i dont intend to go wideband unless i have to i kinda figured from what i have read that its not really needed unless you have a fully programmable ecu like Emerald or MS. I have no intention of doing that im sticking with the standard ecu and mf2 for the forseeable future. I have read about setting up the mf2 on the road rather than on a rr by use of a air-fuel gauge and

FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 Seicento Sporting 16v fuel pump problem thoughts please

Right seicento sporting 2001 mpi (1242 16v engine) To try and cut a story short had fuel tank changed last week as a free safety change by Research Nuneaton as it had developed a leak. Since the tank change if the tank is full upto around a third of fuel or more the car pulls as it should for the engine and no problems. If tank is under around a third full of fuel the car pulses under full load like

Well thanks for the help again. I have a spare charcoal canister solenoid at gfs so will try that at weekend.

FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 Exhaust sensor problem

Hey there finaly got round to getting the car running again after changeing the head gasket in the summer ( ) been in uni away from home so havent seen it scince the summer. And all is good finaly starts fine and runs ok misfires ever so slightly but im putting that down to the petrol witch is at least a year old. The main thing is after its been running for about a minute smoke starts to come from

I would leave it. if it ran fine before and you have not touched it it will be fine. lambda wont die from lack of use. chances are it will smoke and fart for a bit as the exhaust will be full crap and so will the engine bay (checked nothing has made a home in there) I would just check the oil level. put a gallon of fresh fuel and some injector cleaneroctane booster. check water level and start her

Oh sorry I didnt realise that was the case I was skim reading the post (at work you see). Im not sure how the level is relayed back to the gauge as Ive never gone poking around in my tank but Id suspect the level sensor is jammed at that position somehow. bluestar85 liked this post

FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 Fuel emission problems Injector light

FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 Seicento fuel tank replacement......

No surprise to anyone on here but I need to replace my fuel tank....leaking seams (you all know the drill...) Can someone tell me the difference between part number 46511894 & 51733839 I have a 2001 MPI Eper is suggesting I need 51733839 but these are much harder to come by at a decent price. Can I use the other part is there any difference

Hi Yes you can use the cheaper spi tank as a replacement for an mpi the only difference is a mount for the external spi pump which you dont need. I did this recently and aside from the rear two bolts snapping off it wasnt too bad. You will need to take the mpi pump out of the old tank and fit it to the new one. Its easy enough just be careful with the little nuts And it is a bit awkward getting the pump in and out as the level sensor is part of the pump assembly. Hope that helps

FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 Schumacher fuel filter

Does the Schumacher have an inline fuel filter Local factors checked by Reg number and said yes. Cant find it on car and have seen that apparently NO filters on 1.1 Sporting since 1998 The car revs fine but just dies under load fuel starvation Think pump maybe overheating as seems ok when cold. If there is a filter it would explain why pump struggling IF overheating. If there is no filter its either

Make sure the coolant hasnt dropped since last weeks check. Might be a coolant sensor problem if the level is still ok. Cheers D

make sure the crank sensor is clean. I presume that none of the levels have moved between weekly checks. Cheers D

The fuel gauge doesnt so much gave a refresh rate but a damping period (the period it takes to go from the previous level to the new level) fiat like a low damping period so it reacts quickly to changes in the fuel level. I dont think the float is in the middle of the tank in either direction so as you corner brake or accelerate the fuel level will wander about a bit. The reserve light seems to use

its coping. I really would suggest binning the stock ECU and fitting something aftermarket though. If you are looking back at SPI remember that youre going to need a bigger injector than standard - and the more fuel an injector can flow then the smallest amount it can inject also increases. If youre having issues with it rich at idle now it will be ten times worse with one big fat injector My cinquecento

FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 One for the turbo owners

I have a strange problem with my turbo Cinq that I think I know why but just want a few 2nd opinions. The Cinqs run a MAP sensor that of course would be triggered by positive boost and cutlimit the fuel to the injector. To get round this Van Aaken fit whats known as a BDL (boost de-limiter) or on earlier Cinqs a SuperChips ABC device which is same thing it is otherwise known as a FCD (fuel cut defender)

As this error hits my turbo too from time to time I did a little search in order to track the problem. First of all download the following datasheet of the Magneti Marelli MAP sensors. Data sheet Open the pdf in order to understand the way this sensor works. Our NA cars type is PRT 0304. The sensor gives a variable voltage to the ECU which linearly ranges from 0.25V at 17 kPa (heavy decelaration-underpressure)

I have a 1.2 8v turbo project and am running a MF2 for fueling Would anyone know the easiest way to work out the fueling ive done some calcs but not sure if they are correct. Im running it in 3D with four injectors... the car runs a GT1549 turbo I can calculate approx how much fuel i need at each rev point but Im not sure about the gain for manifold pressure It runs an hks boost controller with two points approx 1bar and .5bar -Any ideas

You can not set up accurately an MF2 (in fact any type of fuelling) with out it being on a rolling road and with the rr s wide band lambda sensor plugged in to read fuel levels. This is where you may need to get a 2nd Lambda boss welded onto the exhaust down pipe to take this as well as standard lambda . There is not just the fuel map but the gain control to set up as the MF2 is clever enough to read

Has anyone fitted a aftermarket fuel Pressure regulator as increaseing fuel pressure only when ve pressure is present will help meet the fuel demand. Else if

or you can take the spring out of the throttle body fuel pressure regulator and put an aftermarket one in on the outlet side. Problem is you need 3D mapping for the fuelling as you can be at different boost levels for given revs depending on all sorts of stuff. Standard ecu map sensor doesnt do positive pressure either.

FIAT CINQUECENTO 170 Lots of Cento engine problems... ( Help )

Hi Great forum I recently bought a cinquecento - at the time of purchase there was a brief and hardly noticeable loss of power between 2.5-4k revs. Just sometimes and more noticeable when engine was hot. Thought it might be condensating or something didnt think much of it. Then it got worse and Ive now gotten a lot of symptoms (maybe more than one problem thats causing them)... - Engine is stuttering

The hesitiation at 2.5K-4K revs is pretty normal. Hows the fuel consumption When were the filters last changed The first thing I would be looking at are the MAP sensor and the pipe (check it for leaks).
