Re: Fiat Idea 1.4 2004 automatic NO GEARS

Did it suddenly break, or was there a gradually increasing struggle to get gears?

I bought it as a none runner . With this fault.

I was told at purchase it happened quite suddenly.

Broke down once, managed to get it home then wouldn't move off drive.

Re: Fiat Idea 1.4 2004 automatic NO GEARS

Ah... then my best guess is the clutch cover has disintegrated. If it's able to hold pressure and doesn't leak, get the 'box out and have a look. Hopefully there's some mangled clutch fingers in there, and a new clutch kit will fix it.
(Setting the bite point for the new clutch can be a bit weird, but the instructions walk you through it OK)
Of course it's impossible to tell from a distance, but that's actually the best of the likely causes. There are others, but all need the box to come out anyway.
