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.
