« Last post by 124Abarthreplica on September 15, 2021, 06:37:23 pm »
Hi guys,
Sort of linked to the original query....

Where can I get the original oil filter which i believe is part number 73500049 please?

I note that many websites show various different makes for our car, which make is the original and where can I buy it from please?

Thanks in advance.

I've basically copied and pasted an email if you're wondering of some of the wording

Abarth 500 / Abarth 595 turismo down on power!
« Last post by ljmx on September 14, 2021, 06:58:38 pm »

So I've had my car since December and it was boosting fine had no power issues either, however it went for its MOT a few months back and it came back totally down on power, and wasn't boosting as it should either.

Basically when boosting, it was just not holding boost it was dropping and just nowhere near as much power as before.

I have a bluespark chip, unplugged it still did the same if anything it was worse.

I took it to a local garage by me who smoke tested it and reckons he couldn't find a leak and told me to change the boost control solenoid which I did. Also it's not throwing any codes or engine management light.

It hasn't fixed the issue and the car is still really down on power. And when at high boost to me it's sounds like it's possibly leaking. I don't know but it definitely doesn't sound the same. I have a FMIC and a blow off valve also.

I was hoping you would be able to give some sort of advice, I know it's hard over email/phone to explain but I'm out of ideas and paying for parts that aren't the issue!

I don't live local to any Abarth specialists otherwise I'd go straight there my nearest one is 3 hours away! I'm
hoping someone has some ideas because I'm totally out of them!

## Update ##
Collected my car on Friday; a mere 67 days after dropping it off. :-X
It was like picking it up in March when I bought it, except it was dirty. To be fair, it's been ceramic coated so I'd told them not to wash it.
All seems well  :thumb:

FYI for anyone that might see something like this in the future.  I took it in last Thursday and told them I thought it could be air in the coolant etc.  To my surprise the guy booking it in said he thought it could be the same thing and the reason the bonnet was getting to hot to touch was due to bad cooling.

Tbh I'm used to dealers and garages just fobbing people off or trying to, but he actually listened and agreed which threw me lol

So as I'd already noted before dropping it off the coolant was filled up way to high (it was over max) so they took that out, bled it, and refilled it to the right level and it seems fine now.
