After run coolant pump for Turbo

Hi all,

I read on the web (fiat500usa) that the Abarth 500 has an electrical cooling pump
http://www.fiat500usa.com/2012/04/fi...lant-pump.html

The Abarth Punto have the same ?

Abarth Punto owner, sometimes do you hear a noise after turning key off, like a bzz ?
Anyone has a picture or know where this pump is, if present ?

Thanks and regards

Re: After run coolant pump for Turbo

I never hear anything, although out of habit I never switch the engine straight off anyway. I always leave it a minute or 2 to cool down. I certainly dont thrash it or anything I just think its good practice. According to the article it only turns on after certain parameters have been met. Maybe I havent reached those parameters yet.

Re: After run coolant pump for Turbo

ok thank your for the response.

You do the best manner, I think. It's always great thing to wait a bit before shut off, 30s (cool short drive) to 2-3 minutes (rally up hill )

But the ARCP is a great solution, with start and stop it have to be on the Punto too I think, but as you I never heard this.
