      If you leave your vehichle sit too long or if you replace the engine as i did. the upper head may lose oil. if it does .no amount of cranking seems to get it going. what you do is. Remove the oil filler cap on the top of the engine. inside there is a small circle about 5/16 with a ball bearing in the middle. depress the ball bearing while cranking the engine over. it took me 10 times and 3 battery recharges. but finally oil came out and she started. you do not need to take it to the dealer as i see a few have. its actually pretty simple if you do what i did.

      I'm actually trying to do this currently. Is the ball bearing inside of the cap itself?

      its directly under the cap on the head. it might be hard to see if its covered in oil. take a rag and wipe under the cap area and you should see it. there is a small torx bolt above it and a dark circle beside it. it kinda looks like an eye

      i might mention. you only want to press in the ball bearing ,so something pointed is your best bet. if its heavy enough it will hold down the ball bearing and you wont need a helper to crank it over. it took lots of cranks. dont burn out your starter though.

      @GottaDart2013 , instead of starting new posts for the same problem, just continue posting to your previous threads. If you click on your screen name, you will see one of the options is "View Forum Posts". Click on that and you will see your previous posts and your thread can continue. It's especially important to do this when you are posting a resolution to a previous thread.
      Thanks for posting this because it is info that is not easily found. You may want to include a pic of this ball bearing. I'm sure you wanted to add this to your previous post:

      The Fiat 124 is a lot of midlife crisis consumer's "summer" car, that sits all winter. Same 1.4 turbo as the Dart. Some, but not all, are having this problem after winter storage.
