Fiat Palio 1.2 Torque Settings

Hi Everyone,

I am new to forums, and i already have a problem...

I am looking for the Torque Settings for the Main Ends and Big Ends on a 2001 Fiat Palio 1.2 MPI

Can't seem to find anything anywhere!

Welcome to the Forum!

Look for any Fiat 1,2 engine, torque specs are the same for many models, not only Palio....

Re: Fiat Palio 1.2 Torque Settings

My Haynes for the Panda gives the following for 1.1 and 1.2 8v. So if yours is an 8v engine.

Mains:
20Nm / 15 lbf/ft
Then angle tighten a further 90 degrees.

Big Ends:
20Nm / 15 lbf/ft
Then angle tighten a further 40 degrees.

I imagine you may also have the head off.
Head bolts: New! Do not reuse the old ones as they will have stretched and will not give the right torque.
30Nm / 22lbf/ft
Then a further 90 degrees
Then a further 90 degrees again.

Camshaft bearing cap bolts:
M6
10Nm / 7 lbf/ft

M8
20Nm / 15 lbf/ft

Camshaft sprocket bolt
70Nm / 52 lbf/ft

Flywheel bolts
15Nm / 11 lbf/ft
Then a further 40 degrees.


Ask again if you need anything else.
If yours is 16v, ask again and hopefully someone else will have those figures.
Thanks Joe89 thanked for this post

Re: Fiat Palio 1.2 Torque Settings

Hi Strydom,

Ask anything you like, and I will do my best to help. It would be helpful if you could give as much detail of the engine a possible at the time, as the Palio was not available here, so we have to try to identify which engine or UK vehicle model it is nearest to.

Have a look at the Haynes website. https://haynes.com/en-gb/
If you can identify which manual contains the nearest data to your vehicle, armed with the manual reference number you might find it on Amazon or similar online supplier willing to deliver to you. I see the Haynes website suggests 8.15 airmail costs for worldwide delivery, so that may be an option. Having your own manual makes life so much easier when repairs are necessary.

Re: Fiat Palio 1.2 Torque Settings

You can use any manual for any 1,2 Fiat engine from any model somewhat the same erea, all those engines are 99% the same.
No manual for the Palio was ever made, I'm afraid, only dealers got a dedicated Palio workshop manual, and they pop up on Ebay now and then.
