Question Fiat Stilo Engine Fault

Dear everyone..

Yesterday, suddenly my car gives an engine fault.. The engine sign on the dashboard keeps beeping and it is making me go nuts. When I start the car.. The engine is going crazy. It is looks like my car is shaking. I don't know what to do! My oil was almost empty but I already refilled it so I don't think that's the problem.. I am so confused right now.. One tip! No one should ever buy a Fiat Stilo.. It's a trouble maker!

The main reason why I don't want to go to a dealer is because the last time I had a problem with my dashboard they recommend to fix that thing for over a 1000 euros. A few weeks later it was working again.. Probably a disconnection in/at the electricity part.. Maybe this electricity is also disconnecting my motor?

I am a girl so I don't know much about cars though..


Many many thanks in advance

Re: Fiat Stilo Engine Fault

Hi,
I've no idea what engine is in your stilo ,
petrol / diesel??

the warning light means it has detected a fault,
this fault will have sored a FAULT CODE,
a small electronics device/ or laptop can connect to the car and read this fault code,

I suspect it will be a relatively simple fix..,
as long as the car being run LOW on oil has not done damage,
was the oil level towards the bottom of the "dipstick" or was it lower than the dipstick??,
charlie

Re: Fiat Stilo Engine Fault

Is it a petrol or diesel?

Any other description of the fault? Rough idle etc?
