Re: URGENT - Newly purchased sporting 135 multiair making strange ticking sound

Will do mate!

That's pretty interesting, will see what they say and if the warranty does not cover it then I'll definitely look into it! Thanks again!

Re: URGENT - Newly purchased sporting 135 multiair making strange ticking sound

The sound has just occurred on mine it is the exact same. I have pinpointed it to the turbo I think. I will take it to the garage tomorrow to see if they know what it is after all that is what warranty is for I will keep you Lot informed fingers crossed it gets rid of it. What do they say FIAT (fix it again tomorrow) lol

Re: URGENT - Newly purchased sporting 135 multiair making strange ticking sound

I'm getting there slowly, one day I hope that hideous noise will be gone and I'll have a shiny new turbo unit although my Fiat dealership are a pain in the... Still on at them though so hopefully they'll be reasonable with me. A lot of money otherwise!

Has anybody fitted the aftermarket forge actuator?

Uprated acutator for the GT1236? The uprated actuator is for the GT1446 (Which is fitted to the Abarth Punto Evo's)

Re: URGENT - Newly purchased sporting 135 multiair making strange ticking sound

I see, does this uprated actuator is for the GT1446 (Which is fitted to the Abarth Punto Evo's) cure the rattling problem and also slightly increase boost levels?


Also I imagine this would be a cheaper option than the forge one as that is 134 plus p&p.


I have watched the video on earlier page where a screw driver is held on the bar coming out of the actuator which calms the rattling down.


I will try this later on mine and report back.

Re: URGENT - Newly purchased sporting 135 multiair making strange ticking sound

It can probably be just the actuator thats rattling but can't see that happening. I wouldn't suggest fitting that actuator onto the Gt1236 as it porbably won't fit. Also the GT1236 is VGT whereas the GT1446 is a FVT (Fixed vane turbo).

The uprated actuator will increase boost dependant on the spring fitted. Also, it will help keep the boost at the high rev's aswell which is where small turbo's run out of puff.

Re: URGENT - Newly purchased sporting 135 multiair making strange ticking sound

Is the noise coming from the actuator or the turbo? I seem to be lost with it all now!My car performs how it should, 37 mpg and makes that noise as in the video on the thread but not as loud.
I originally thought it was the engine cover rattling on tick over when I revved it up.

It might be the linkage on the wastegate actuator rod that's rattling, well it is on mine. Fiat are not being very helpful at all with the situation. Just trying to get as much money out of me as possible it feels like. I was wondering if an upgraded actuator would solve the problem but everyone I've spoken to seems to think only a new turbo will cure it. The rattling is really bad on mine though, verging on being embarrassing to drive so I am desperate for a fix aha!

Re: URGENT - Newly purchased sporting 135 multiair making strange ticking sound

I'd suggest asking the likes of turbonetics or turbodynamics to see if they can manufacture a new wastegate actuator for you, although I'd like to think they would possibly need your own one to manufacture from.

The orignal one (certainly not made by Fiat) have to work, I know two Punto 135HP with lovely sound.

I have had a closer look at my actuator and rod today on my sporting.
I did film it but can not load it on here.


I have come to the conclusion that it is the actuator linkage that connects to the wastegate. I put a screw driver on the link to reduce play and this stops the rattling when revving on tick over, see photo 2 on the right hand side where the screwdriver is.
To fix this I would suggest a washer or shim to reduce the play on the link, this requires moving a clip on the end. I am no mechanic and I know if I tried to remove it, it would probably flirt off and disappear into the engine bay. I will take it to my mates garage when he can fit me in.
I do not think its the turbo as it does not affect the performance in anyway. My girlfriend suggests do not rev it up when the car is not moving! haha


When researching on the web about this rattling I have seen that VW 2.0t TSI have a similar problem the fix is similar too.
There is a video on you tube with the fix solution

Re: URGENT - Newly purchased sporting 135 multiair making strange ticking sound

Cheers for the help mate, fortunately I have now been able to get fiat to take it in for a diagnosis finally, which i have been waiting for about 7 months for now aha. I will report back on the diagnosis and the possible solutions for a fix as soon as they've seen it which is on the 16th!
