which is damaged the pipe between the engine and the cooler or the pipe from the cooler the pipes are removable just undo the small allen bolt at the flanges and pull the pipe away from the flange. replace the o rings if they get damaged while removing.
Turns out the oil cooler itself is also rusted which is why removing the pipe will damage it. Does anyone know what part is needed to completely remove the oil cooler
There is a bracket type thing behind where the oil filter goes remobe the oil filter and the remove the square box brackt thing and just replace the oil filter again minus the oil cooler.
If you have oil in the coolant then yes its probably a head gasket issue. The oil cooler is just infront of the front right wheel and tends to just lose oil if it does defective. Well not lost just spread all over the right hand wheel.
Most likely the head gasket. I had the same problem with my rover 200. Other signs to watch out for are mayo under the oil filler cap and white smoke from the exhaust where water is combusted with the fuel. You may also notice a loss in oil pressure. Best to get it checked out and fixed before it does actually go. I got around 4000 miles out of my rover before it actually died. But it tends to happen

oil pump is ok and there is oil pressure.(I already started to think about thicker oil too ) For me it looks like the engine is warmer than it should be because usually there wasnt so hot under the bonnet than now. I cant even touch the plastic top of the engine. Today had a new problem. I said earlier that the water is warming quickly (from cold start it takes maximum 1-2km or 6-8min) to the normal

ECU - I am really interested in tinkering with this myself and have done a lot of reading about it. I cant afford and would be bored with the expensive ready-set-up route so am considering Megasquirt (harder longer more interesting) or Greddy piggyback (still self-tune but less wiring-up required less probability of making a mess but is it less flexible). Im a massive MS convert now I built my own
If you get bored of it send it my way The engine in TD tipo is still fine. Sounds like a tractor but is getting better all the time. For some reason diesels get better with age. Not sure if this is the same for JTD s. Shame the car is falling apart slowly around the engine. Need to cure its oil cooler leak before taking it back to Mr Clutch and telling them its not leaving until its gear change is smooth BTW.. could you have a look at your TD and tell me if it has a oil cooler If it does then I might be able to get one from a scrap yard instead of the 170 quid job from fiat .
Yes it does have a oil cooler I was having a look under it yesterday seeing whats what like you do. Its on the drivers side next to the rad the mirror image of the intercooler on the other side.
hell cat you wont need an oil cooler you have an oil to water heat exhanger. td100 does have an ecu but you are right the mechanical pump is the main control of the fuel the ecu I believe is only there to make my life misserable with code and injector errors its no common rail thats for sure. All I know is theat it had to be reprogrammed as it would run fine for miles and it did on the new engine all
They should swap they are larger and clearance between your wheels and discs should be checked - side clearance obviously since you have 17 wheels I think you only need the calipers pads discs and caliper holder - if that doesnt line up with the holes then you will also need the hub carrier and heat shield. Im guessing you are breaking the Marea HLX Not swapping parts between Yeah 7 months.. Never did steal your oil cooler
Thanks for the quick response the only thing that worries me is that the oil cooler may not fit and also will the gearbox. Will this fit in properly
dont know but i wouldnt think the gearbox etc would be a great problem. more than likely has the samesimilar mountings. as for the oil cooler not fittingif thats the case its no big problem to jig a different mount or a new oil cooler perhaps smaller or longer depending on the space you have

Thanks for the info... will check out the alpha forum- what does JDT stand for then I talked to a big fiat dealer in Edinburgh and they also said that head gaskets rarely go on Ducatos but still they thought that it probably would be the head gasket which is a bit ironic I thought. bravaRulez is it common to leave loads of coolant lying on the deck when the gasget goes My van never overheated to my
Before you put the engine in put a new cambelt tensioner and camshaft variator on it as if you had to change these in the future its a engine out job to do- officially anyway. See if you can get the coupe brakes on the bravo as well- 155bhp to 220 bhp youll need more stopping power. Main problems i imagine would be placingpositioning the turbo hoses and intercooler oil cooler in the bravo Engine ecu
Yeah got the complete car all it needs is an oil cooler for the engine to run the car was a stolen recovered and needs a light unit bonnet and wing to make it good. I am planning on taking the engine box shafts hubs and brakes and any other ancilleries i require. the ECU s are controled bythe immobiliser ECU which is a different unit. Thanks for the info Chris
If you need an oil cooler I should have one available soon. Full working order. H
My next door neighbour might be having a go at it tomorrow. On the coop the oil cooler pipes are steel (hence they rust) and the cooler is aluminium. They corrode together and are very difficult to separate. Separation involves lots of heat and large blowtorches Generally either it works or you melt the aluminium oil cooler. Id imagine it could be interesting as theres residual oil in the cooler too.
was happening with mine. I filled it up and pinched the pipes that the water flows through to remove air and suck in water from the resevoir this seems to have fixed the problem and the engine is running cooler than ever and fine. seems like it was just an air-lock Many thanks DONT BE TOO HASTY HERE MATEY Ive just gone through exactly the same thing with my X plate bravo 1.6 sx. 11 months after fiat
let me help you out the coupe bravo brava 155 tempra 145 146 delta hpe are all based on the same car the tipo. The engine bays are all the same size a 1.4 bravo had the same amount of space in it as a 20vt coupe. the wish bones are not all the same length but the the subframes are. You can fit any engine from any other tipo based car into any other one ideally you need a whole donor car. Some things
Personally I dont want to do any engine modifications. You can fit Brembo four pot callipers from the coupe search the section for info. Have a look at the BHP figures for the Coupe Punto HGT and Brachetta 1.8s Its the same engine with minor changes their BHP figures are a little higher. You could fit one of those engines. __________________ Parts Wanted. I will consider any new original fiat

The coupe and bravo are the same car underneath so expect very similar quarter mile times to a coupe 20VT. You are going to need a lot more than just an engine as gearbox driveshafts roll bars suspension hubs breaks exhausts fuel pump ecu oil cooler intercooler etc. Are all different uprated. Best bet is to buy a running coupe and strip it this way you can compression test engine etc and check for turbo wear. plus get all the required parts. (bulldog) might be the be the best person to speak to as he has done the conversion on a marea which is the same as the Bravocoupe here is the thread detailing all the work. httpwww.fiatforum.commarea15374...ld-thread.html hope this helps
think you may have also had a post on the bravo guide but anyway.. that part you are referring to is the wastegate actuator and is fed by a small pipe from the compressor side of the turbo which opens the wastegate when the boost pressure gets near 1 bar. so if this is not opening youll have too much boost but not a lack of power. On the other hand if its stuck open the wastegate will constantly be
only use 15w50 if you live in a very hot country by very hot i mean desert regions. it is thicker than the recommended oil so using it in cooler countries will put extra strain on the oil pump and it will take longer to get oil flowing round the head on a cold start the recommeneded grade of oil is recommended for several reasons.

Are you talking Unichip I think you will be asking too much of it its not that advanced. Whats a CRY02 sounds like a device for turbo cars. Why do want a lower thermostat temo I assume this is not a race car Leave the oil pump as it is yes wou could run an oil cooler with it. Do actually know what you want to do with the car an aim Do you have a budget Rich

Hi To convert to a Turbo engine. The coupe 20VTurbo engine uses the same engine block as the normal 20v. The difference between the two is the internals pistons crank etc. This means that the engine mounting points are the same. Although I think the Turbo has uprated engine mounts. The 20v turbo exhaust bolts straight onto the turbo and the turbo is bolted to the manifold . So No the exhaust wont fit.
As said the engines internally are different. In short. The 20v turbo has uprated pistons to create lower compression a stronger crank shaft different cams bigger injectors different ECU different exhaust manifold different induction manifold bigger throttle body and has stronger valves too. The turbo runs boost pressure at 1 bar. the turbo also has a Turbo an oil cooler an intercooler pipes.
I wouldnt have said that any of these were linked Head gasket Throttle position sensor Leaking roof If youd had say Fan failure Water Pump Failure oild cooler failure Head gasket Warpped head Then those would follow if you know what i mean i fixed a 80sx head gasket and is right as rain now although currently off the rd. Just make sure you fix the problem that caused the overheating as often its not just the head gasket but a faulty fan relay thermistor etc too.
Quick update car is prepped and ready for paint Has a crank sensor failure now which prevented it from making santa pod but it will be back stronger than ever Also specced up my new engine which will be built and fitted after the suspension has been finalised and im happy with it.

Of course the plan from 3 months ago (heh exactly 3 months ago) has failed but luckily im back in action So just an update... Think ive done most of the research needed and im after the 1.2 16v engine from one of the following cars - Punto sporting (97) - Bravo - brava - Lancia Y The one scrappy that has the engine has a very bad attitude so im not doing any business with them. Luckily now that exams
