Disadvantages of the Fiat 169A4000 engine

  • The main problem of the engine is the rapid occurrence of rings and the subsequent oil burn;
  • On the engines of the first years, the crankshaft pulley key was often cut off and it slipped;
  • Still here, revolutions often float due to contamination of the throttle and fuel pump grid;
  • A modest resource in this engine is the starter, thermostat and its pillows;
  • And don’t forget to adjust the valve clearances every 50,000 km.
