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.

Things that can cause trouble.
Cam belts can jump on the pulley.if belt breaks,dont think the engine is junk,it is not.just replace along with tensioner and water pump.
Clutch cables seem to break with annoying regularity.Usually means your clutch is going too.
Hand brake/parking brakes can seize.put a little copper grease on the rear brake arms,you can see them when you look from the rear of the car at each brake hub.
Sensors can go all over the place but before replacing,try cleaning them.
Radiators are awkward to replace.Car can suffer from head gasket failure and the car does not have a temp gauge.get one off ebay and a pillar mounted pod.It will be your best friend to avoid over heating.Sounds like really bad news but I,ve had 2 now and being pro active with the maintenance really pays dividends.

I have a seicento sporting and the common problems include the rear wiper motor not working, clutch cable snapping or becoming dislodged and head gasket going.
For pure driving fun i wouldnt suggest any other car.

My seicento is only running on 2 cylinders what problems would this cause


If your Fiat has no distributor, a distributorless ignition system, then it will have a coil pack with two coils. Each coil provides spark for two cylinders. One coil is for cylinders 1 and 4, and the other coil is for cylinders 2 and 3. If one of your coils has quit working, you will only be running on 2 cylinders. It is not uncommon for coils to fail.

Whilst driving along the electrics gradually cut out, starting with the radio, power steering,instrument panel then totally cuts out on a fiat seicento


check your battery cables make sure there tight and secure but what i think you will find is a fuseable link going from the battery to the wiring harness has blown and once you replace that!! then you need to find the component that cause it to blow which wil probably be the heater motor also check and make sure your alternator belt didnt fall off
