Flashing light on my dash of a engine

hi patricia
FIAT engine light flashing means the ECU needs adaptation,
you can do it yourself just follow this procedure.
( remember not to accelerate unles is stated) start the engine
let it to warm and wait for the cooling fan to come ON then OFF 3 times, like ON,OFF,ON,OFF,ON,OFF. After the fan cuts off the third time accelerate fully down let the engine rev up to 4000 only then leave the accelerator let the engine goes down back to idle, do this 3 times.the engine light should go away.
good luck

Sounds like one for the shop. Sorry. . .

Fiat punto acceleration problems


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.

No power under acceleration

It would appear from your description that maybe your oxygen sensor is playing up or the Catalytic converter is possibly up for renewal?
Hope this points you in the right direction,
