Fiat punto not starting

I have a S reg punto and its not starting!
I have: Change the cam belt, Spark plugs and got a new battery after each of these the car worked fine for roughly 2-3 weeks and now it stopped again.
It is just about to turn over when it make a 'clunk' noise then continues to crank (the light flicker when it goes clunk)
Starter motor? Auternator? key code? Electronics? I'm so confused!!
Please help

SOURCE: car turns over, but won't start

Too many choice.
3 main areas are fuel, spark, air.
Try a shot of ether, if it fires at all, it is a fuel problem.
Then we can get into more detail.

SOURCE: Fiat Punto indicators

you need to change the flasher unit .... also check fuse # 24 on the fuse panel inside the vehicle. the flasher unit should be just under the dash on the steering wheel side... i have alot of information on that vehicle but i couldn't find where exactly the flasher unit is located.

Fiat punto 2005 spark plug change


Hi Gerard, on a 1.28v Punto the plugs are on the back of the cylinder head tucked between the 4 inlet manifolds. The plug closest to the timing belt end (just next to the oil dipstick) is easy to find, the others are a bit obscured by the plastic housing that sheaths the injector wiring. Be careful pulling off the suppressor caps, they hang on quite tight so best use long nose pliers and NOT pull on the HT lead. Hope that helps. Andy

Fiat punto 1.2i after starting the car and driving when i park up turn the car off it wont start


Car not starting or turning over indicates towards multiple possibilities. It can be issue with battery or weak battery. But if battery checks out ok, then it can be starter issue or faulty alternator or problem with low fuel pressure or no spark at spark plugs due to dirty spark plugs or faulty ignition coil or injectors getting cracked or dirty and needs to be cleaned.


To confirm the problem, the basic troubleshooting is required.

At what mileage do I change the plugs on a 1.2 fiat punto, 56 plate? It is a fiat punto active


the ideal way in changing plugs is to replace it every time you change your engine oil, which is aroung 10,000 kms or 6 months (depending on the oil used). but to save some money, you can always check first the condition of your plugs if it really needs to be changed.

you can check the condition of your plugs by removing it from the cylinder head and checking its contacts:
1. if the contact is brownish in color, then your plug is still perfectly fine.
2. if it is not brown, there is either something wrong in your plug or your engine. so this will be a good time to replace your plugs.

*** tip - when changing your spark plugs, always replace all of them at the same time with the same model and same brand. this technique will ensure that your plugs will be consistent in providing spark always.

Hie,my fiat punto 2004 reg auto transmission,vibrates heavily when engine warms up.this happens when you stop and engage into (D) for drive.I have tried to drain and add new ATF oil but it won't solve...


This is likely not in your transmission. It sounds like you may also be experiencing some low acceleration and poor mileage. The open bonnet is indicative of needing repairs under the bonnet. It sounds like a probable misfire (i.e. bum spark plug or plug wire(lead)). This doesn't sound too major but do have it inspected before it becomes catastrophic in the future. Cheers and let me know if you need anything else. Just occurred to me, is this a diesel engine?

R REG PUNTO 16V SPORT engine not running battery fine electric windows lights etc work so battery fine turn key and nothing ...


If you hear a clicking you still might not have enough battery power to start it.
If you hear the motor turn over, but not start you might have a fuel, or spark issue.

I fitted a timing belt to a 02 fiat punto and adjusted the marks on the crank and cam inline with the spec in the manual the car wont start and is backfiring through the carb any ideas


Good evening, I'm sorry to hear you're having problems however it is nothing that cannor be recovered from. You either have your timing 180 degrees off or your marks moved. A good hint is when you finish your installation give the belt a few rotations until your marks line up again that way you know everything is good. I hope this helps, and if you have anymore questions please feel free to ask.
