    100 kmph in my modified SX4 zxi comes in about 2700 RPM due to its high power.
    100 kmph in my linea 1.4 t-jet+ comes in about 3400 RPM with its stock condition.

    4000 RPM is too much and should be mostly caused by clutch fault or engine fault (I'm no technical expert)!

    Thanks,
    SX4enthusiast.

    If I am not wrong, air filter or ecu has nothing to do with it. IMO, it is caused by the clutch slip or defective clutch.

    Power has do nothing for this type of problem. FIAT has tuned all engines for drivability & minimum gear changes. Gear ratio plays important role in FIAT cars.

    1.2 is less powerful than multijet but offer same drivability as multijet due to its smart gear ratio.

    Problem seems to clutch. Check clutch assembly.

    Air Filter & ECU checked.. both seems to be fine ... Now it's time to check the clutch... Don't want clutch slip at 15K run :sadblue ... Anyways just for an advance preparation, what might be the cost of fixing clutch slip? Is it a total clutch plate change or something minimal? ::O

    If clutch is faulty/hard you shall get in warrantee.
    But if the clutch is damaged/burnt due to bad habbit of clutch riding you have to do it in paid job.

    Complete clutch kit includes (Clutch Slave cylender,Clutch plate,pressure plate & clutch release bearing)
    Total cost may upto 6500/-
