Re: tempra SW 2.0L DOHC timing belt broken.

Set the pistons all half way up the bores.
Rotate the camshafts to check the clearances. Take care not to allow inlet and exhaust valves in any cylinder to clash.

Bent valves will show with big clearances. If all are ok, align the timing marks and fit a new belt. Turn it over gently at least twice, by hand, if ok, do a compression check. Might save removnig the head.
The head is quite heavy, with two camshafts, and awkward to lift. There will be some oil retained in the head, around the camshafts, so don't tip it towards you, or you'll get messy. Should be easier, being transverse, than my Argenta many years ago.

Smile Re: tempra SW 2.0L DOHC timing belt broken.

Final update to this thread……….1995 Tempra SW 2.0 L has been unfortunately scrapped.
First changing timing belt and balancing belt did not fix it. Then used compression tester and found cylinders 2&3 had no compression whatsoever (bent valves). So, the answer as to whether this model has a safe engine is NO. Purists my say carry on repairing. But I’m a home tinkerer lacking in tools and skills. Also, too many ever-increasing faults due to age of car.
Thank you again fiat forum members, for encouraging me and advice to even attempt home repair.
Now have a 2019 Toyota corolla 1.2T touring sport. Looked at Tipo SW but didn’t like the 1.0L only choice. Farewell FIAT for now………we might meet again!

Re: tempra SW 2.0L DOHC timing belt broken.

Used "removemycar.co.uk" site online who paid a very fair price compared to other local scrapyards. Car was taken to Redcorn (Tottenham) Brantwood Road
London N17 0DX. It had approx 8 months MOT left. Leaky radiator and leaky oil sump gasket, not enough to fail MOT. New car as stated is a toyota corolla 1.2L icon tech touring sport (non-hybrid, thank you) which when driving is reducing my driving skills what with all the unnecessary instrumentation (excluding of course seat belts and airbags).
