It sounds like your springs and or struts are well worn out from probably about 12 years of holding up the weight of the car and its passengers. The added weight of the second person is pulling the car down that much more now that the suspension has worn out. I'm not familiar with a Punto but I bet its a small car, the smaller the car the smaller the suspension (unless its a Porshe) and they usually last about 50,000 to 70,000 miles before you start to notice a "soft" suspension, swaying in turns and bit of role as you take turns hard. Hope it helps.

Could be tires, driveshaft u-joits, engine mounts, engine miss, exhaust system, or many others. See if you can make it do this sitting still and reving engine. If not, start with tires.

When starting sounds like exaust is hitting body also when driving over bumps on road


Possible that the exhaust connection glands are worn out or the clamps are loose so that the exhaust is hanging down more than desired. Hence the reason that it is hitting on low ground clearance.
Please check from the underside, remove or tighten the exhaust clamps.

Driveing at slow speed every bump you heir a meatle sound effect


This could be due to exhaust has come off its brackets and every time you hit a bump its hitting the road
Check exhaust and you will see scratches and dints where's its impacted with the road, Making sure all brackets are connected and tight might solve this problem

HAVE SMALL OIL LEAK FROM TOP OF ENGINE BLOCK DRIPPING DOWN BY SIDE BLACK VERTICAL COVER TO CAM BELT/ALTERNATOR DRIVE BELT. SOMETIMES DROPS ON EXHAUST AND SMELLS. HAD ROCKER COVER GASKET REPLACED 15 MONTHS...


is that a typo
should it be 1996 FIAT PUNTO 55S

degrease the engine with off the shelf products

if leak is confirmed from the top of motor

redo rocker cover seal with silicon
see if that slows the leak
cam seals may not have been replaced when you thought they were

grating noise at belt could be idler bearing

oil leak onto exhaust and smoking
real engine seal . sump

Oil leak on a fiat punto 2001 1.2


Clean the engine block with a compressor and find out where the oil is coming from.
If there is no leak, and motor stays clean, then the oil is being combusted inside the engine, and you should get black smoke from exhaust. In this case it is time to a major repair to the engine.
