Recall - Engine Management Control Unit

Mk 2 Punto 1.2 8 valve. December 2001

Yeaterday reveived recall notice from Fiat UK.
1.2 8 valve Punto Engine Management Control Units could become faulty over a period of time causing irregular engine running and reduced performance. The engine fault warning light may illuminate.
Return the car to have the unit checked & reprogrammed free of charge.

Dealer says it is a 1 hour job.

Easy, contact the local Fiat Dealer and give them the vehicle details.

Re: Recall - Engine Management Control Unit

I phoned fiat and they said that my wifes car has NEVER had a recall issued for it ever, so obviously none is outstanding. Would be odd that one 1.2 8v engine gets recalled for EMU troubles and not another?

Thanks
Tony
