Title: Abarth 500 esseesse Engine Replacement (312A1000)
Post by: richbrowne on September 30, 2021, 02:34:10 pm
Hi everyone,
Long story short, the engine of my 2009 Abarth 500 esseesse has totally failed and needs replacing.  ::)

The code for my engine is 312A1000. Does anyone know which other Abarth 500 engine variations I could install and still use the same ancillary items/ECU/turbo etc please?

Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.

- Richard.

how has it failed mechanics eg thrown rod or other damage or is it just worn out, if it is just worn out have you considered getting it rebuilt by a specialist engine builder it could be blue printed and balanced giving you a far nicer unit.

My engine model is: 312A1000.

The cam pulley bolt worked loose, pistons hit the valves and bent the valves. It is perceived that the engine block may be damaged due to each of the 16 valves having hit the pistons.

There are many different secondhand engine models available online therefore need to know if I can chose from other engine models other than 312A1000 for my car which gives me more choice/options.

Code 198A4000 is another variant used in Alfa Mito and Fiat Grande Punto. Just be sure its a T-jet 1.4 16v and not multiair, unsure if multiair cylinder head compatible with T-jet manifolds etc.
Can always run any more info you get past me , just ask, if im around, happy to help  :thumb:

Id stick to just the 2 engine codes for now, I work for a motor factor so if you like, i could speak to engine suppliers and enquire but you would have to pm me with your reg or vin number to keep things accurate.
In general, any 1.4 tjet engine with IHI turbo fitted should be basically compatible.
Higher Hp engines have Garrett turbos in 500/595 and grande punto abarths.
