Title: Multiair unit replacement Cost
Post by: agiuga on June 06, 2017, 07:17:23 pm
Hi
Just bought an 2014 Abarth Punto Evo Supersport privately. The engine warning light came on (Fault code P1062-71 and the local Abarth Service centre replaced the oil and it worked fine for a day. I contacted the Abarth dealer who serviced the car in March. They said they told the owner that the multiair unit needed replacing. I feel a mug as they quote £1100 to fit a new one.  Thinking about using an independent garage if I can find one near Cardiff with the experience of Abarths to get it cheaper. Anyone know one or am I better using an Abarth service centre. Thanks

I'm having the same problem!! Also been quoted the same price from Glynn Hopkin. Except I have also been told I nee a new Turbo as well?!! They replaced the oil etc for me too and exactly the same thing, worked ok for a day and that was it. Let me know if you get anywhere with this? I was looking at buying the parts myself and finding an independent garage to fit them for me.

Can I ask if you don't mind, have the cars been serviced in accordance with Abarth schedules?

Using official Selenia oil and genuine oil filter?

The reason I ask is because the 'Multiair' system uses it's own engine oil to activate the valves so needs super clean correct oil to operate.

Also in that thread is a link to a method to effect your own repair if you are handy.

Found Waterfall Garage in Bridgend which specialise in Italian cars and had replaced multi air units.
Cost £1100 and no problems  2 weeks on. If the type of engine oil and quality is that important why does the service schedule have 20000 mile intervals?
