I think the part that your reffering to is the 'posotive crank ventilation valve', its job is to recycle the harmful gas from the lower end or sub assembly of the engine case and reburn the gas that is generated there.

Hie,my fiat punto 2004 reg auto transmission,vibrates heavily when engine warms up.this happens when you stop and engage into (D) for drive.I have tried to drain and add new ATF oil but it won't solve...


This is likely not in your transmission. It sounds like you may also be experiencing some low acceleration and poor mileage. The open bonnet is indicative of needing repairs under the bonnet. It sounds like a probable misfire (i.e. bum spark plug or plug wire(lead)). This doesn't sound too major but do have it inspected before it becomes catastrophic in the future. Cheers and let me know if you need anything else. Just occurred to me, is this a diesel engine?

Battery completly dead. need to access battery in trunk.


hi .....wrong there is a simple answer lol, open your hood/bonnet under there you should find a plastic cover with a + on it, lift that cover and there should be what looks like a brass nut and tall, get a friend , or if possible a new battery and some jump leads, connect the red + to the + under hood/bonnet and connect the - earth to any part under the hood/bonnet ie, something that is connected to the body as the earth is connected this way, and hey presto....you can open everything and get to your lifeless plastic brick in the back lol....hope this helps please vote thanks

Bonnet locked


If indeed the bonnet cannot be opened from inside the car, then you are going to have to climb under or figure out how to get to the latch under the bonnet and open it. Hard pain in the rear but its the only way

Ant open bonnet


Hopefully the cable has not snapped. Have someone else lean on the bonnet a little. (Not too much or you will dent it) Try and operate the catch while they are leaning and releasing. Or sometimes dust can accumulate on the catch. Perhaps you can spray under the bonnet with a can of WD40 and hit the catch. Try the above trick again after you have sprayed it. Once you get it open find the cause before you close it again :)
