Re: change to sport
Hey that was a cool car in its time! is it that 2 seater? anyways, u definitly have to get the bertone rims, they were 14 inches and were produced on other sporty fiats as well. also x19 bertone rims 14 inch would definitly give it a sporty look, and they would fit without problems. also a front extension to the bumper would change d look. just see some pictures of modded 124,s and u can copy the design, and give it to a fiberglass guy. its easy to make. well basically thats it... then its your creativity to make it look d way u like

Sorry, but there is not such ting as a 2006 FIAT 124. Fiat 124 was produced since 1966 until 1980 in different onfigurations such as spyder, coupe, and sedan. The oil filter on those cars is located low, at the driver`s side of the engine, just behind the time belt cover.
I dont know a whole lot about foreign cars, but if a fuse is blowing, it almost always means that there is a short. What does the fuse control? Like does it control the computer, or the headlights. If you can find the circuit that the fuse controls, you should follow all of the wires and make sure none of them are shorted out. Also, check all of your ground wires and make sure that are all attached well.
very easy prob the easiest car to change pads on. just remove the front wheels then get a screwdriver and wedge back the piston then pull the little clip out of the pin on the bottom of the brake caliper tap out pin and remove pads the do it in reverse
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:-
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.
First you need to get the radiator cleaned up and then fill it up with a good quality coolant and not water and for oil leakge you need to get in touch with a mechanic so that he can replace the oil seals, i also have the same problem with the oil leak and i changed the oil seals and its working fine since then.
