Seicento - Start problems when warm

HI guys, My Seicento 899 cc does not want to start after driving for more then 10-15 min. Starter kicks in but no ignition. A friend looked in with some kinda tool and said that there is no spark coming. THere are no problems when i start it in the morning, but after driving for more then 10 min it just needs some time to start again. Please, any suggestions?

Re: Seicento - Start problems when warm

If no spark and no fuel (peek down the throttle body) past the injector, it'll be the crank sensor. Otherwise, suspect the temperature sender (blue thing on the inlet manifold) or the coil pack may be breaking down when hot (cheap from scrappy).

My money is on coil packs.

Re: Seicento - Start problems when warm

Unless both coil packs go together it should misfire on two cylinders, stopping completely it is the crank angle sensor probably.

It is easy to swap a coil pack if you got one, otherwise swap a crank angle sensor.
Thanks sergio2u thanked for this post

Stick a meter on the temp sensor and check for sensible readings.
