Re: timing belt problem on fiat brava
I recomend you to buy a book with the timing marks because i had the same problem and i have one of the best repair information software online and that could not even help me
this type of car has to many marks and you need to make sure where they go, but if the timing belt still complete and in the car all what you have to do is mark it with liquid paper or some kind of ink and put it back the same way

Is this a FIAT"? why must i guess.? uniJet Turbo Diesel,
Some PSA Peugeot Citroen diesel engines are also rebadged JTD units.
There are special tools you need to lock the cams in the correct position. Without these it is near impossible to get the valve timing 100% right. These locking plates fit on the opposite ends of the cam boxes from the cam gears and belt by removing the blanks on that end.
I managed to borrow a set and set it up correctly. I then made my own marks on the cam gears for future reference.
<grin> I don't know why or how this ended up under the category of Fiat 2006 X1/9 - I'd like to have one but I think I will have to be satisfied with my '87 Bertone instead-
I would highly recommend you have a shop replace the sensor (very soon!) with a pressure gauge to measure the pressure directly to make certain you aren't dealing with a failed or obstructed oil pump.
This will only take a few minutes and shouldn't cost much.
If your engine isn't clattering, I suspect the replacement sensor isn't any good either.
