Clutch slipping with only 32000km is it posible?

My tipo is 2016 1.6jtd2 with 120hp.First i must say,i drove my tipo normally mostly on highway,and now i noticed that the clutch is slipping in fifth and sixth gear.Anybody had similar problems? The authorized dealer in my country said that the warranty does not cover this problem...need advice

You got at least 2 year warranty, that's including the clutch, no question.
Send an email to the importer in your country, and explain the problem.

Re: Clutch slipping with only 32000km is it posible?

It depends why it's slipping.

If the plates are worn then the warranty doesn't cover it... but the plates shouldn't be worn if you drive it mostly on highways and don't hold the clutch in whilst you are waiting at traffic lights etc.

If there's a contamination problem (oil on the plates) then it has to be coming from the crankshaft oil seal or the clutch hydraulic system (I don't know if the 1.6D has a concentric clutch cylinder). If these are leaking then the warranty should cover them.

I drive mostly on highways and i do not have a habit of holding the clutch on traffic lights,so well will see.Because of the Christmas holidays I'll be waiting two weeks to get the clutch parts delivered from the factory.

Problem solved at the official FIAT service,the complete clutch kit change, including the flywheel which was causing the problems as i was told. Everything was done under warranty.

Thats bad news..

Do check with FIAT central office in your country.

They may well offer a contribution to the costs.

However.. a repair outside of the FIAT network may be cheaper for you.

Good luck.
Do let us know how it goes

Re: Clutch slipping with only 32000km is it posible?

Hello everyone.

I am reviving this old post/thread.

I am having this exact same issue over here only problem is my car is out of warranty. I used to be a car technician and when i first saw this issue on my car i thought that this is going to be expensive and the clutch was to be replaced. However, i got a second opinion from one of my work colleagues (i work in a main dealer not fiat though) and no matter what he did he could not fault how the car drove. I even had a family member drive the car and explained to them how i got the fault on, still nothing.

I have recently invested in Multiecuscan and that brought up P0130 lambda sensor. I cleared the fault code and drove the car with no issues. Then in 5th and 6th just below 2000 rpm when my foot was flat to the floor the rpm picked up to 2500 rpm then dropped down to accelerate. Very confusing i know. I drove the car with my laptop plugged in and when this fault occurs the lambda temp reads -40C without fail and at every attempt. The car was hot and only faults when hot. It does'nt do it when cold! after 3 attempts the fault code came up but no engine warning light.

I cleared the code and drove to Scotland which again the fault reappeared which leads me to say this is not a clutch issue as its not there all the time. I have had it to Fiat this morning and they have confirmed the presence of the same fault code. Hopefully this will be rectified soon as its not just the tipo that does this its also the 500x. I know that the top Lambda sensor can be a little prone to failure on the 1.6 diesel and my garage has replaced a few on the SX4 S-CROSS and Vitara but none of the above symptoms.

I will keep this post up to date with my vehicles progress.

Re: Clutch slipping with only 32000km is it posible?

Hello All.

An update to the above issue.

The lambda sensor that sits just after the turbo has been replaced eradicating the fault of the engine dtc. However, the 'clutch slip' was still apparent. The car had been booked into my local dealer and within an hour or so there is a software update available for this specific fault.

So its worth booking it into a Fiat dealer as they are the only ones with the software direct from FCA for the car.

I will keep all posted if, for whatever reason the fault re-occurs!
Thanks varesecrazy thanked for this post

Re: Clutch slipping with only 32000km is it posible?

How would a software update have any effect on an entirely mechanical clutch system!? Mine had a flywheel, clutch and slave cylinder replaced at the dealer for what sounds like a similar slip under acceleration issue in March. So far no repeat of the issue which, if it were simply a software issue, would surely have kept doing it regardless of the new clutch components.
