Re: doblo 1.9d overheating

My Doblo had the same problem, on mine it was the radiator that packed up, check that it isn't leaking.
A new rad was fitted under warranty.

Re: doblo 1.9d overheating

Hi mini, I have seen several doblo's with heads cracked after overheating. Was your cylinder head hot crack tested and skimmed? If not and you cant find a leak, and the cooling fan is operating ok, then I would have a chemical test carried out to confirm if the head needs to come off again.

Re: doblo 1.9d overheating

If you see some of my previous threads, my 2001 doblo 1.9 overheated at 21k on the clock without warning, at 40 mph and had to have a new engine fitted by the dealer. A fault was found in the block, and given as the cause.

Re: doblo 1.9d overheating

It seems to be a common problem with the 1.9 non turbo. What other Fiats have the same engine, & do they have the same problem?

I presume the two versions of the engine are a turbo or non turbo, & it's the non turbo engine that has the trouble which seems strange because it must be quite an old design. I would have thought the faults in it would have been ironed out years ago.

Re: doblo 1.9d overheating

I wish I had come across this forum earlier. We bought a Fiat Doblo 1.9 van over a month ago. It is a brilliant runner. I, myself, have a petrol car (not a fiat, yet) but this van is fantastic. I am gathering from this forum that there is a problem with these engines overheating ! It's a 2001 model. I am guessing I should have this insured in case the engine dies. I will have to check this out.
