About Accelerator Pedal

The 500 Fiat accelerator pedal manages the throttle valve which controls the flow of air in your engine and in turn dictates the amount of fuel released into your engine. Ultimately the 500 Fiat accelerator pedal, by regulating the air and fuel flowing into your engine, controls the speed at which your car travels.

The 500 Fiat accelerator pedal is located in the footwell of your car. It is the pedal on the right hand side next to the brake pedal.

When you press down on the 500 Fiat accelerator pedal, this causes the throttle valve to open up, allowing more air to flow in. The engine control unit recognizes that the throttle valve is open and in turn regulates the amount of fuel entering the engine in readiness for the increased flow of air in the engine. In essence, when you press the 500 Fiat accelerator pedal with your foot, this makes your car go faster.

In a worst case scenario, the accelerator pedal can malfunction and get stuck fast, but this is rare. 500 Fiat accelerator pedals do wear down over time, however, and you will eventually need to buy a new part for your car. Symptoms of this will include a sticky accelerator pedal or one that is harder to press down with your foot. A faulty 500 Fiat accelerator pedal can get sticky when the throttle valve it connects to, which lets the air into the engine, gets clogged up with waste carbon. Generally speaking, if the compression of your foot on the 500 Fiat accelerator pedal is not a smooth and easy process then you should ask your mechanic if it needs a replacement.

Fiat trivia

  • Fiat had a break from selling cars in the US, and was absent from that country for 27 years!
  • The diesel engines designed and used by Fiat are incredibly popular, and can be seen in other cars from makers such as Saab, Suzuki, Opel, and Chevrolet to name just a few.
  • When it was made, the Fiat 500 was one of the smallest cars in the world! It was only 127 inches long and 50 inches wide! Italians have a nickname for the Fiat 500, calling it the 'Topolino', which translates to the little mouse.
  • The 1999 Fiat Multipla has been consistently voted one of the strangest car designs of all time. It’s easy to see why, with the odd light placement, a muffin-shaped top, and two rows of three seats (in the front!). A redesign in 2004 made the Multipla much more popular.
  • There was an ongoing joke in the UK that Fiat was an acronym for 'Fix it again, Tony'. Fiat found it hilarious and used the slogan themselves in 2014 in their ads.
