Default Re: The Premier 118 NE thread

Dear all,

Last month I had tried a DIY cleaning up the Mikuni carburetor in my 118NE. After putting it back, the idlling is not proper. Means, I have to tightening the throttle screw completely in to keep the engine alive.
The Anti-dieseling solenoid was working fine and seems to work fine even now. What else would I have to check.
Also I need a picture of the enrichment valve diaphragm assembly sequence. Somehow I had missed to click the picture of the arrangement. There are 2 springs, a diaphragm, a cup, and a vacuum operated nozzle. Any help in this regard would be appreciated.
Thank you,
Ilango.

It would be a PREMIER and not a FIAT 118NE
Anyway, you can offer between 50 to 65,000 for a well maintained Factory fitted AC vehicle.

Dear, in all there are 9 (Nine) greasing nipples on 118 NE and you need to grease all the nipples periodically to ensure that your car runs and behaves as expected. Yes, there are greasing nipples on the propeller shaft as well! Let an experienced mechanic examine your car by hoisting it or taking it over a ramp. Hope it helps.

In case you replace the UJ crosses on the prop shaft, you may end up with crosses having greasing nipples. If so, they will require periodic lubrication.

The drag link assembly has ball joints which requires greasing.

A grinding noise through the gear lever opening could have multiple causes -

simplest first - check transmission fluid levels
#2 please check for loose bolts on the prop shaft at both ends
#3 please check pillow block bearing and gearbox mounts
#4 time to check the gearbox

When you are saying "In case you replace the UJ crosses on the prop shaft", do u mean it came without the greasing nipples from factory??

I managed to find a guy here who knows at least half of what's he talking. He could find 3 on prop shaft and 4 on steering.
Greased them up. No difference.

Gearbox: I doubt it, but I will check anyways.
The sound is audible once the car pick up speed above say 15kmph. It's like a bad bearing noise.
On doubt I have changed left wheel bearing, didn't change the noise.

On my 118NE, the UJ crosses didn't have greasing nipples right from the factory.

From your description, it sounds like the pillow block bearing is shot.

Hello all,

I have a stock 118 NE lovingly gifted by my late mother (brand new) in late 1993. So far it has done close to 51000 Kms. only! Since I am emotionally attached to this car, I take extra pains to maintain it. I never cared so much for my other cars, the latest one is a Chevrolet BEAT LT!!

The whole talk was to emphasize that I am always present when I take my 118 NE car to any mechanic.

I noticed that the original UJ cross on my car has greasing nipples.

But I too feel that the gear box transmission fluid as also the differential box lubricant needs a close examination in addition to the clutch bearing and pins on Universal joints at both the ends!

Hope this helps.
