Disadvantages of the Fiat 182A4000 engine

  • The motor is reliable, and the main problems here are related to the vagaries of electricians;
  • Most often, sensor failures or failures of the Magneti-Marelli control unit are of concern;
  • A lot of trouble can be caused by simply replacing the timing belt, since there are no marks here;
  • Still often there are suction in the intake and slipping valve stem seals;
  • It is also worth noting some tendency to regular breakdown of the cylinder head gasket.
