The FIAT Tipo is a small family car designed by the IDEA design house and produced by the Italian manufacturer Fiat between 1988 and 1995. Initially base (i.e.), DGT, S, SX and 16v trim levels were available. Power from 58 to 148 bhp (110 kW/150 PS) came from 1.1, 1.4, 1.6, 1.8, 1.8 16v, 2.0, 2.0 16v petrol engines as well as a 1.7 diesel, 1.9 diesel and 1.9 turbo-diesel. It was then finally ceased production in the summer of 1995 and was replaced by the three-door Fiat Bravo and five-door Fiat Brava. The following service and repair manual apply for Fiat Tipo and Tempra hatcbacks, saloons and estates 1988 – 1995 models. This service manual is divided into sections which are Safety First, Using Your Car, Facts and Figures, Getting Through the MoT, Servicing Your Car, Repairs and Replacements, and Wiring Diagrams.
Over the year FIAT, in common with all other manufactures, have lengthened their recommended service intervals. For instance, oil changes on later FIAT’s don’t have to take place as often as earlier ones. In the main, these changes have not come about because of specific modifications to the cars themselves. They have come about because of a number of factors: Lubricant, Spark Plugs, Seals and other components have improved and mechanical parts are better made due to improved material and production techniques.
