So I just recently got my abarth and had some general questions.

1. It’s been awhile since I have driven a car as my main vehicle is a truck but is the steering on the abarth supposed to be firm? Like a stiffer steering wheel?Or heavy?

2. can you take corners really quick with not much fear of tipping?

3. Does sport mode just make the car faster or does it change anything else?

4. Should you start the car and drive it in normal till warm before sport mode?

5. lastly any other tips, I have always wanted one and now that I have it I want to make sure it’s taken care of.

thank you for your help!

What could cause a random vacuum leak only at idle? http://www.fiat500usaforum.com/showthread.php?37897-What-could-cause-a-random-vacuum-leak-only-at-idle&goto=newpost Sun, 11 Apr 2021 18:03:37 GMT Engine goes into limp mode with the throttle light on and the P2172 code for High Airflow Vacuum Leak Detected (Instantaneous Accumulation).

Engine goes into limp mode with the throttle light on and the P2172 code for High Airflow Vacuum Leak Detected (Instantaneous Accumulation). It goes limp only at idle like when stopping at a light, and randomly at that. Had a scan tool connected and found that just before it goes into limp mode, the MAP reading shoots up from 350 to over 700, so the computer does indeed see an instantaneous vacuum leak. As a test, I disconnected the hose from the intake manifold to the PCV valve (which is mounted in the air/oil separator) and plugged it. Drove around 2 weeks and never had a problem. Put on a new PCV and air/oil separator and 2 miles down the road, the same thing. Could there be any worn or weak control valves that may be opening under idle vacuum (when vacuum is highest) when it shouldnt, and letting air in internally? I smoke tested the system and found nothing, but then, this only happens when the car is running so you can't smoke test then.

So since buying my used 2013 abarth several months ago I've had to replace several parts that I found to be 'missing'. I imagine most were left off or lost during its trips to get serviced. (before my time. It's a used fiat).

Here's the latest piece I've just noticed. It was crudely bathroom sealant'ed - not a word - back into place after the retaining pieces had been mangled/snapped.

Any guesses as to where this is from?

I know btw, its just a fun way to see who knows their stuff. I'm hoping the image enlarges because it looks mighty small composing this post :/

edit - no looking up the part number. Although, as we all know, part numbers rarely stay the same for long. Especially true in regards to our now defunct n/a abarth 500s!

IMHO, neat trick, but if one is in a situation where one would want to see it, one's eyes should be on road, not guage cluster. Experience a great teacher.

So Here is the thing. This used abarth is for sale at a Audi Dealer and Its a one owner with like 20k miles on it and its a 2015. Apparently the owner was a older man who had the exhaust changed upon purchase. I have a hold on it to buy it but I wanted to double check with u guys on this exhaust. The vin says its an abarth from carfax and autocheck yet I have never seen one with this exhaust. I can not tell if he just had the axle back changed with a different muffler to mute noise. As the rest looks like a normal abarth. What do you guys think, are u guys seeing the same thing

Hi guys,

I just joined the club of abarth ownership:). The car is in good shape, but the first eyesore to take care of...

The chrome trim on the steering wheel, the circular portion where you activate the horn, which is really the airbag is peeling and is such an eyesore. Its actually the plastic protective portion over the chrome.

Aside from purchasing a whole new airbag, what have you guys done to remedy this common issue?

thanks for the help
