The FIRE family motorcycle debuted almost 30 years ago. The first engine with a range of less than 1 liter - appeared in 1985 under the hood spear Y10. Later it started to be installed in the Fiat Uno 45.
FIRE stands for "Fully Integrated Robotized Engine", meaning a high degree of integration between different engine versions. A sign of modernity (in the debut) was the use of a camshaft in the cylinder head, a toothed belt and electronic ignition. The engine head is made of aluminum, and the engine block is made of cast iron. In the first versions, the carburetor was Weber, later single-point injection and multi-point injection systems appeared.
The originally offered version of the 1.0-liter engine was quickly supplemented with a variant of 0.8 variants (Fiat Panda), with time the following variants 1.1, 1.2 and 1.4 appeared. In addition to the 8-valve engine, 16-valve versions also appeared. The 1.4 engine used a turbocharger - the most powerful in the FIRE engine family develops 180 hp. Engines, although structurally old, are still used successfully today. They are characterized by relatively high reliability, low fuel consumption, and simple design and great popularity make maintenance costs very low.
A wide range of FIRE engines, the most common is version 1.2, slightly less frequently are the 1.1 and 1.4 versions. The benefits are long life, over 200 km with no signs of wear.
Oil problems. High oil consumption in 1.4 engines, leaks in smaller units - all this requires frequent monitoring of the oil level. The fight against these shortcomings is great and does not give long-term results.
The alternator is sensitive to moisture, mainly Puntom.
1.2 The 16V engine is very sensitive to the gear belt overrun period.
