Disadvantages of the Fiat 199A6000 engine

  • The most famous problem of this motor is the oil burner due to the occurrence of rings.
  • The primitive crankcase ventilation system also contributes to oil consumption and throttle contamination.
  • From poor-quality lubrication, the phase regulator on the exhaust shaft can crack strongly.
  • The weak points of this unit include the fuel pump, starter and ignition coils.
  • Also, there are very often leaks of lubricant from under the valve cover gasket.
