The turbo in your Fiat is designed to draw in cold air from the air filter and feed it through to the engines combustion chambers, where it is mixed with fuel. The air and fuel mixture is controlled by the vehicles Engine ECU and is adjusted based on various factors including the temperature of the air coming in. Regular servicing of your vehicle plays an important roll in turbo maintenance
Are you experiencing a loss of power on acceleration? Or maybe you’ve noticed oil leaking into the inlet manifold? Both are signs of a potentially failed turbo. The TwinAir model Fiat cars often suffer with turbo wastegate faults, which would cause the vehicle to lose power or drop into limp mode on acceleration.
