Disadvantages of the Fiat 198A1000 engine

  • For a low-volume turbo engine, this engine is very reliable, but worries about small things.
  • Poor starting is usually caused by a fuel pressure regulator or a clogged filter.
  • If lubricant consumption occurs, check the oil separator and especially its diaphragm.
  • At high mileage, the hot part of the turbine and the exhaust manifold often crack.
  • Also, the rubber diaphragm of the turbocharger bypass valve bursts here.
