The 1108 SPi (Single Point injection) engines are identical in both cars, tho later MPi (multi Point Injection) fitted Seis are different.

My be better to state the reason why you need to change the engine and post in the technical section of the Cinqs/Seis.

Oh and welcome.

I have bought a 1999 Siecento at auction in good faith only to find the head gasket gone and the big ends knocking. I Think?
thanks

1999 Sei will be a SPI engine so the cinquecento 1108 will fit it, and if its your kind of thing so will the punto 1242 engine with very few problems :)

Also welcome to the forum :wave: :)

Erk!

HG going isnt that big a problem, but the big ends going is....can you describe the sound? is it like a definte thud whilst the engine turns over?

No its more of a rattle sounds like a diesel and the oil light comes on.
Thanks

Sounds like its oil pump has failed, hence oil light on showing no pressure and therefore big ends have gone.

If you are going to change the engine you may as well do the 1242 as other have suggested as its no more difficult to fit than a 1108 with eth only modification being the exhaust spacer, it really does transform the car.

Thankyou.
i might just do the 1242 then so it doesnt matter if the engine is out of cinq. luckily i have located a garage close by who has some engines in stock.

The 1242 engine is out of a Punto 60. Its basicly the same engine but its a 1242cc rather than the 1108cc. only difference if that its 10mm or so taller so needs a spacer between the downpipe and manifold for the exhaust to fit properly. also you need to swap the punto crank sensor for the cento one and the oil presure sensor for the cento one (with 90 degree bend). the rest is straight swap.

thanks. so do the ancilleries from 1108 fit the 1242 or do i need to buy an engine complete as most of the breakers sell stripped engines?

better off using a cinqi one as you will have to swap a few of the bits from the punto one as the linkages are wrong. not a hard or long job but might as well just use the cinq box.

also there is the clutch, cento cable vs hydraulic punto.
