The following are the general instructions on the start of diagnosing any electronically controlled engine or transmission problem.

The engine and the automatic transmission (transmission control is only for automatics, engine is still computer controlled no matter the transmission type) in this vehicle are computer controlled and in most cases when a fault occurs a fault code is stored in the memory of the computer control module. There are exception to this, such as the Mass Airflow Meter and fuel pressure problems. What must be done is to have all the basic testing done such as a scan of the system for fault codes as well as a check with a live data scanner tool for engine functions that are not within range of normal, a trained technician is required to know what is correct and what isn't, then based on careful diagnostics done from a factory repair manual the correct part is replaced or the wiring repaired or the computer replaced (known as the PCM or ECM,ECU), which is very rarely the problem. Other basic checks must be done as well such as mechanical problems with the engine as well as engine state of tune and mileage on the engine. The transmission can have mechanical issues as well such as no gear engagement at all or a failed pump or other pressure related problems. Also engine mechanical problems can and do cause many drive-ability related problem such as rough idle and other symptoms.

SOURCE: replacing the water pump on a fiat palio 1.2 2001

Go to an auto parts store and get a haynes auto repair manual for your car, about $17.00, it shows some illustrations, but gives a step by step procedure on how to remove and install, good luck.

SOURCE: 1981 Fiat 124 Spider. No spark coming from coil.

Assuming that you have a fully charged battery then you should check/replace the ignition points and condenser. This should ideally have been checked before investing in a new coil.

If in any doubt then just replace them as it's cheap and easy. Note that most Fiat 124 Spiders are a little more complicated than normal cars as they're often fitted with two sets of points instead of the usual single set. One set is used purely for starting and the engine switches over to the other set once it's running at full oil pressure.

Assuming you have a 1600cc dual point 124 Spider then look at the following web address to see how to replace and adjust your points:-
http://www.mirafiori.com/~thad/points.html

Note that although the points can be set roughly using a feeler gauge it's vital to adjust them correctly using a dwell meter.

The next web address gives you the specs for the US specification Fiat 124 Spider which usually had a single points distributor (points specs on page 21):-
http://homepage.mac.com/tmckaskle/fiat/images/specs/index.html#page1

When doing this job also check and replace both the distributor cap and rotor arm if they show signs of damage, burning or excessive wear.

This is not a difficult job, but it is fiddly. I usually found it easiest to remove the distributor from the engine to work on it but that does mean that you need to mark the position of the rotor arm as the distributor is withdrawn to ensure that you don't completely lose the ignition timing when you've finished. You'll need to recheck and adjust the timing afterwards whether the distributor is removed or not anyway.

Finally, for lots of detailed help and assistance, I strongly suggest that you register on the Fiat Forum at the address below:-

How do i remove head restraint from fiat palio 1.2 ed 3 door car


Tilt the seat then you will see two plastic surrounds where the headrest supports slide into, one will have a tab, with the seat tilted so the headrest can clear the roof push the tab at the same time as you tug the headrest out and the headrest will slide out.

Fiat Palio 1.2 firing order


didnt change them 1 by one, you bad boy.

id get the real engine name and google that or buy the FSM book.
at FIAT.

1.2 F.I.R.E engine.
comes in 2 favors
  • 8v SMPI VVT (2007 - current)
  • 16v SMPI (1998 - 2009)
most non boxer engines, are 1,3,4,2 (but this is pcm job not you )
google shows
IT'S WASTED SPARK SYSTEM !
google hit #1
It's cast into the cylinder head. Look across from the passenger side of the car- you'll see 2314 just above the coils.

sounds like this engine is with a COIL pack, You never said.
and with a twin pack , all 4 bangers are wasted spark.
so 2nd 3 fire on one coil (in series) and 1and 4 fire in tandom.
but the PCM sets order. not you,
it only needs to have to pack wired right.
and is clearly marked on most better made coil packs
did you look first.?

---------------------------------------------------------------------------
one more google poster , no FSM. shows
coil towards the front of the car is cylinder 2 and 3
coil towards the back of the car cylinder 1 and 4
as shown below

make sure you have the plugs to the coils the right way round thou i

4 ----[o]4
1 ----------------[o]1
2 ------------[o]2
3 --------[o]3

-----------------------------------------------------------------
me.....
when the PCM fires coil 1/4 , it better be wired to 1 and4 or
it will not run. (ir shakes like a wet dog)
simple as can be.

yes, the front cylinder is #1
now where is front. you say?, that be, on the crank pulley end.
not the clutch.side.

if still confused a drawing is easy to make.
1sparkfront, to 1 coil
2 spark to coil 2
3 spark to coil 3
4 spark to coil 4. rear cylinder is 4.
1,2,3,4 front to rear.

Fiat palio ignition timing


its marked on the coil
and on the valve cover
its a wasted spark system.
the coil is marked (if not sub coil)
2314

1 goes to 1 front cylinder spark.
2 goes to 2.
3 to 3
4 to 4 rear spark.
the ecu knows the order but the wires MUST be right.
#1 spark is closest to front engine pulley, (belt side)
#4 is rear.

My fiat palio 1.2 has no power the more you put foot the more power it loses what could be the cause


Check the condition and operation of the following, as these are the most common causes of low power:

1) Spark plugs, leads and coil(s)
2) Fuel filter and pump
3) Air filter
