The company listed above apply their own diesel engines and gasoline are similar.
On all models are single-row 4-cylinder liquid-cooled engines.
The engine is located at the front of the engine compartment across a direction of movement, leading the front wheels.
The cylinder block is made of cast iron, and block-head aluminum alloy. Working surfaces of cylinders in all engines (except petrol XN and HMM until 1994, release and diesel FIAT 2.5 l capacity) are an integral part of the cylinder.
Hemispherical shaped combustion chamber, valve seats are always hot landing. Cars with petrol engines 1.8 and 2 l. prior to 1994, release a carburetor type "Solex".
Fuel fuel pump diaphragm is served. Dry-type air filter with replaceable paper filter element.
On some models (with engine 2 l.) is used with fuel injection system.
Ignition system: the gasoline models until 1986. the release is a classic ignition system with circuit breaker, centrifugal ignition advance mechanical regulator and vacuum regulation.
After 1986. is contactless ignition system with electromagnetic pulse shaping circuitry.
Avtombili with diesel engines are mostly equipped with a high pressure fuel pump Bosch VE; fuel is injected through the Vortex Chamber (except Fiat Ducato with a volume of 2 l, which uses direct injection).
All cars clutch: dry, single plate with mechanical drive.
Clutch release mechanism with push the diaphragm and thrust bearing.
Transmission: in the models with capacity 1000 kg is used 4-speed gearbox, and the models 1400 kg-5-speed.
In addition to four-wheel-drive vehicles is absolutely excellent transmission, with rear power take-off shaft to drive the rear wheels.
The gearbox is located across the axis of the car and attached to the engine.
A Borg-Warner Synchronizers with iron rings.
Transmission: transmission of motion to the front wheels are two drive shafts of the same length with the joints of equal angular velocity (CV JOINTS).
Front suspension independent, like McPherson, with built-in shock absorbers located inside the helical springs.
Rear suspension with continuous tubular straight beam connected with a body double longitudinal springs and telescopic shock absorbers.
Steering: at all contained in this edition of the cars is steering with finger joints with furring steering mechanism.
Approximately January 1989, on some cars the power steering.
Braking system with hydraulic drive, with the vacuum brake consists of two independent units with a braking limiter. Front and rear disc brakes, rear-drum.
