Check whether water is coming out of the air bleeder pipe behind the carburator. If not, the heater unit water flow is blocked. You can notice this when turning off the engine. You can hear the water grumbling. at the back of the engine. Normally when it overheats the water flows back to the expansion tank and water will overflow through the cap. Make sure you are bleeding the air well after working on the water system of this car.

Fiat seicento 2000 reg keeps overheating after going 5 or so miles, light comes on then grumbling and water from expansion tank. had new radiator switch put on, took fan off and tested-works ok- but not...


This may be a puzzle...
The seicento (I drive the same car) likes to create problems in the heater section of the cooling system. The small pipes to it (behind the carburator) may be blocked or the entire heater may simply be dirty. Flushing the system with a water hose may help. Usually this problem starts slowly and goes away if you re-start the engine and then excellerate a few times. Check if your heater blows hot air - if yes, and if he keeps blowing hot air (does not cool down and get cold) ther is no blockage. If you have a blockage, your heater will only blow hot for a little while and then comes normal cool air - if this is the case, you have a blockage right in your heating system which runs your cooling system hot and the cap of your cooling tank will start leaking. This is a comon problem on older Seicentos....
Other general problems can also be the case, like defective thermostat, fan motor does not come on (check fuse and relais first).
In some cases, ther might be some air trapped in the cooling system and doing the above will also cure it. At last, check if your water pump is working.

Engine wont start help please!!!!!


you have tripped the inertia switch, (there to cut off the fuel pump in the event of a collision), you need to reset the switch by simply pressing it back in.

Overheating fiat seicento


I hope you have managed to solve the radiator problem by now. Seicento seem to suffer from water flow blockage in the heater blower area. I recommend you check the piper behind the carburator and make sure water is flowing. Normally when these pipes are blocked, water will flow back to the expansion tank and start leaking through its cap. You can also open the small screw on the small pipe coming out from the back panel behind the carburator and see whetehr water flows. Also, if the water is heard grumbling when engine is switched off, it is highly likely that the water is not flowing through the heater unit. Hope this helps.

Cheers,
Andrew

I have a seicento sporting myself. No major issues but sump gasket needs replacement every two to three years, water pump very fragile and requires regular replacement of cooling water as per maintenance schedule, otherwise problems are guaranteed. Similarly for heater blower using hot cooling water. Radiator is a hassle to replace. However overall it is a fun car to drive.

Overheating


hi check your thermostat, waterpump, radiator and cap, hoses, fan if you can see a visible leak then i can talk you through a solution if its not leaking try flushing radiator, change the cap, make sure your fan is working, make sure your water pump is working u can test by removing the radiator cap with the engine running you should be able to see the coolant flowing not just sitting still if you need more assistance let me know
