Great engines, had 3 of them in Delica vans. As already said the only issue is cooling and glow plugs. The delicas have a system where the glow plugs stay on until engine is pretty well at operating temp, by-pass this crap and they last a lot longer. Had one van I bought at 180000ks, sold it with 345000km on it, all that I did (aside from regular oil changers) was a couple of glow plus and repairs to air cond.
crash replied to Chain's topic in Project DiscussionGood car, we had one when I was young, sat my driving test in one then used it to go to school in. Like most wee Fiats it liked a few revs!
