Hi, the same thing happened to me last week. I am in Spain and it wouldn't start. When it did I could not rev it and it was bellowing out smoke.
I took it to a Fiat dealer in Salamanca who informed me that I needed a new part that would have taken 4 days to come. It seemed to clear itself so he told me that I could wait until I get back to the UK, if I wanted.
It seems to be ok now and I am not back until June, so fingers crossed that it will be alright until then.
