    Down A Cylinder!?

    I have a 2012 Fiat 500 Sport with 190,000 miles on it. Recently started running rough, especially when idling. Mechanic tested plugs, coils, etc. and there is no compression in one of the cylinders. They recommended a whole new engine. Thoughts? Should I get a second opinion in case it's something like a valve spring? Seems weird for the engine to be dead already, but it is a lot of miles.

    Does it display any CEL messages? Before springing for a new engine, I'd probably take it to a shop that knows the 500. The intake valves are opened by an electric/hydraulic system, so it's possible the brick isn't working properly. I'd want to rule that out before springing for a new used engine. It could also be a burned valve.

    At 190k miles any thing can be wrong. Get a 2nd opinion. You got nothing to lose. You might look into a salvage engine, or a remanufactured one. Is your 500, worth the money, sinking a new engine into it.

    Oh no! Sad that it couldn't make it to 200,000 miles, but not to many 500's make it past 150,000, so the fact it lasted that long in 9 years, is incredible. At least you know what brand to buy reliable cars from, FIAT!
    I don't have a car, or a FIAT, yet. But, my mom does have a 500. It's a 2014 FIAT 500 1.4i MultiAir Pop, Grigio & Nero, 6-spd automatic, 15" steel wheels, and a white stripe.

    I would be careful making a definitive statement like " not to many 500's make it past 150,000". It puts a needless negative idea in readers heads without any proof. The nature of the 500 is many of these cars are second or third cars, or cars used for recreation that don't see many miles. We have a few 500s on the forum with high miles. There's even a thread for cars over 100,000 miles. We have enough haters out there without giving them unsubstantiated ammunition.

    Typically, putting 12,000 to 15,000 miles on your car per year is viewed as “average.” A car that is driven more than that is considered high-mileage. With proper maintenance, cars can have a life expectancy of about 200,000 miles.

    Likely a burned exhaust valve. With that many miles, I wouldn't recommend replacing the cylinder head. You'd be better served to find a low mileage replacement engine from a rear-ended 500 Sport donor car.
