Hi and thanks for accepting my request.

I own a sporting seicento r reg and I really like it.
It broke down a few weeks ago turned out to be the gearbox mount had worked loose? Anyway I'm wondering the best and cheapest place to get one of these as the AA said the rubber was worn badly.

Also the tick over is a bit eratic but not all the time what could be causing this? First thought was choke stuck on but I can't even find the choke!!!

I have no manual for this either.

Also when I fill right up with fuel you can smell vapours in the car

Any help would be appreciated

Re: General

Welcome to the forum

EuroCarCare.net are good friends to the forum, ask for Big Mick if calling and he'll help you out with any parts you need.
There's no choke as there's no carb, it's fuel injection and so is controlled by the ECU. ECU's on these cars (assuming 1.1 Single Point Injection) are pretty much bulletproof, I'd start by looking at the vacuum hoses to make sure none are split as these often cause a very lumpy idle.

The fuel tank seams on these cars are known to rust and leak, there was a recall done on them sometime ago so it may have already been done but is worth checking with VOSA/Fiat. A new tank won't set you back a great deal and is easy to fit if replacement outside of the recall is required.
