Post 500L Engine Cover

Hello all,

I have a 2014 FIAT 500L Twinair turbo engine (1.4L I think) and am really having trouble finding routine maintenance guides. I am used to working on my Honda which is worlds apart from this engine it seems. I am looking for how to take off the engine cover to start. I know it is basic but I don't want to damage anything. Then I am looking at changing spark plugs and the engine light came on just this week. Pretty sure I will have to go to the dealer for the check engine but what can you all recommend?

Thanks in advance.

Hi,
the US versions of "the same vehicle" tend to differ in substantial ways.., so I will not give any specifics.

the Twinair tends to be an 875cc Two cylinder,
the Multiair tends to be a 1400cc , 4 cylinder

look in the GUIDES for the 500 (euro), and Punto(2008 onwards)

for the basics , and you can see what appears similar.

for engine diagnostics ;
IF you just want basic functionality I can recommend this;

for Italian specific use , this is a FAR MORE worthwhile investment;
