Fiat Croma Owna (+ other car related occurrences)

Recommended Posts

If my memory serves me correct the fiat twin cam dosnt have the balance shafts in the engine. I've got a idle control valve still sitting on a dedra turbo twin cam engine in garage if you end up needing one.

Well done. I've had many Themas over the years and have loads of parts which are common to these including a full stainless exhaust and wheels with winter tyres.

Came in expecting to see the more recent estate thing they made. This is WAY better. Although someone should definitely get the newer one as well so we can do a head to head.

Bo11ox has one.

Thanks for all the help!

I’ll have a go at the idle control valve tomorrow and keep you updated, I think I know what I’m looking for.

Yes that's it, take it off and put ign on then look in it while plugging it in and you should see it move, and feel it too. 

Arghh didn’t think to do that!

I’ve had it off and cleaned it out with WD40 the best I could, didn’t try and take it apart though. Just been on a run for an hour or so and it’s still lumpy and cutting out on idle occasionally so it might be knackered. I’ll have it back off tomorrow and do what you suggested!

What rpm does it idle at? . Should be about 800rpm, adjuster is on top of throttle body, it's a brass lock nut and flat blade screw driver adjuster. You set it with idle control valve disconnected and engine warm.

you'll prolly be better using icv cleaner or carb cleaner the wd40

I've never been though an automatic car wash, must admit it wouldn't be my first choice in an old Fiat!

There was a lot of bum clenching going on.

You fancy dragging it up to the scotoshite supper?

What’s the details?? 

Might be hard pushed to have it sorted in time if it’s this month!

Would be a bit* ambitious to try drag it and myself up there this month, I’ve only ventured as far as Hartlepool since passing me test😂

We should definitely try and get a NE shiters gathering set up soon though, once I’ve sorted some of the Cromas more pressing issues.
