Sounds like you've got a whole bunch of problems all at once. The curious thing is that none of them seem to be inter-related - obviously, the linkage to your carb is broken, bent or otherwise compromised; the not-starting thing could be one or more of a gazillion things, but my bet is your battery is toast. Sounds like one for the shop. Sorry. . .

I had a similar problem with a 98 sporting. It turned out to be firstly the clutch had worn down to almost nothing and the fuel filter hadn't been changed in a good while so it got clogged. I would do the filter first. (located just under the drivers side near the rear wheel.

SOURCE: why is it so hard to get my car in gear could it bee the clutch??

Whenever your clutch is worn down it will become harder and harder to engage the gear, until it will finally not go in at all, or just get stuck in one. It is time for a clutch replacement. If you have to have a shop do it, prices can vary greatly from vehicle to vehicle. I had a quote on a prior vehicle for 700. Good luck :)

SOURCE: FIAT PUNTO. Ticking for short period following start up

Definitely change your oil every 3 months or 3000 miles. After you change it add a half cup of Lucas engine oil suppliment when the engine is hot.
If if goes away you know it's cam or lifter issue. If it doesn't the ticking you hear may simply be your fuel system.

SOURCE: hi i have a remote key for my fiat grande punto

It's not a DIY job and needs specialist equipment.

Take the car along with ALL remote keys to a Fiat main dealer. Any keys you do not take along will not work afterwards. Fiat can then program the vehicle and remotes as a matching set.

Note that it's worth shopping around for this: it doesn't take much time or labour so there's likely to be a wide variation in pricing. You can also try asking independent automotive locksmiths whether they can provide the service: many can these days but there are also plenty who haven't invested in the technology needed to do the job.

My fiat punto 1.2elx, clutch pedal clunking and shudders when driving off from a stop start.

You should replace the clutch kit !
The clutch disc is out of order because the pedal is clunking. Also shudders & smells of burning.
There is the risk of the car stopping on the road !

I have bought an engine for my fiat punto 53 plate punto from a salvage yard. I was told the engine was from a punto same year as mine. will this engine fit or is there different models?

hi, the engine you have brought should fit as most of them will fit even if the cc is different so i wouldnt worry to much about it.

The only thing you would have a problem with is if your engine is petrol and they send you a diesel engine.

As long as its the same fuel it wont matter to much if its a bigger cc engine then it will have more power and less if the engine was smaller but they will all fit into your car so i wouldnt worry to much. Even if the engine was out of a car 2 years older than yours or 2 or 3 years newer as they are all the same.

Just make sure you get some sort of warranty because you are buying from a scrap yard they havnt been driving the car around its just come into the scrap yard and they take it that the engine is fine so once fitted check for any noises or oil leaks etc.

You will also need to put your gearbox off your engine onto the new engine as the new one is from a scrap yard it might have the clutch and pressure plate still attatched to teh new engine as this is not a part inside the gearbox but attatched to the engine so if your car had no problems with the clutch then make sure you change this over from your engine onto the new engine.

Also make sure you give the new engine a full service change oil and filter etc.

Also worth doing is once the car is running buy a fuel cleaner that you put into the fuel tank this will then run through the fuel system cleaning all the injectors as the chances are the car has been sitting for a while and may have got bunged up slightly.
Make sure you buy the correct fuel cleaner that goes into the tank ie petrol or diesel ok.

Let me know if you need further assistance ok.
