Servicing Info for all Abarth models
« on: March 02, 2011, 02:00:37 pm »
This sticky details the official servicing requirements for all Abarth models - Grande Punto, Evo, 500, 500C and 695, including all esseesse models.

This information comes direct from Abarth and supersedes any information contained within vehicle handbooks.  It is the same information that is published on the electronic system (eLearn) used by Abarth to inform the dealer network and is therefore the same information as available to your local dealer.  The information has been checked thoroughly, and any changes from the handbook have been confirmed by Fiat Technical as being correct. 

Therefore, to the best of our knowledge, the information contained here should be regarded as correct wherever a contradiction appears with your vehicle handbook.

    (*) Irrespective of the mileage, the timing belt must be changed every 5 years or every 4 years for heavy-duty use (cold climates, town use, long periods of idling, dusty areas).

    (**) If the vehicle is used mainly around town or the annual mileage is less than 6,000 miles, the engine oil and engine oil filter must be changed every 12 months.

    (+) Only use spark plugs specifically certified for T-Jet engines.

    To clarify a few points:

    - There is NO such thing as a low mileage service for any Abarth model.
    - FAMP, the system dealers use to produce fixed price menu servicing, IS NOT CORRECT for the Abarth models.  In fact, it's no longer correct for Fiat, either.
    - Oil changes and services DO NOT need to be alternated, i.e. if your last trip to the dealer was for an oil change, you do not automatically need a full service next unless you've reached the required mileage (18k).
    - Servicing is NOT time-based - it is entirely mileage dependent.  The only exceptions to this are: engine oil and filter, pollen filter, brake fluid and timing belt which must be changed as per the above charts.

    Here's an extreme illustration: Imagine an Abarth 500 that does extremely low mileage of only 2,000 miles a year.  It would require the following visits to the dealer:

    TimeMileageWork Required1 Year2,000Change engine oil, oil filter, pollen filter2 Years4,000Change engine oil, oil filter, pollen filter, brake fluid3 Years6,000Change engine oil, oil filter, pollen filter4 Years8,000Change engine oil, oil filter, pollen filter, brake fluid, timing belt*5 Years10,000Change engine oil, oil filter, pollen filter6 Years12,000Change engine oil, oil filter, pollen filter, brake fluid7 Years14,000Change engine oil, oil filter, pollen filter8 Years16,000Change engine oil, oil filter, pollen filter, brake fluid, timing belt*9 Years   18,00018,000 Mile Service

    * As in this example the car is likely to have been used mainly for town driving, the 'heavy duty use' clause requires the timing belt to be changed every 4 years instead of 5.
