Hello all, motor system failure came on the dashboard with engine light permanently fixed to yellow on dials. Took it for diagnostics check, fault shown EGR required.
EGR bought and replaced by non Alfa garage, get the phone call, car is fixed you can come and collect it. Took it home, parked it up and then went for a drive an hour later, drove like a pig, engine light came straight back on. I had a read through these threads as the diagnostic said egr fault, phoned the garage and they said being it back we will check it. Went back, diagnostics said egr fault again, so I said have you simply replaced the egr, the answer was yes, so I said did you not clean the manifold? No was the answer, they supposedly spent three hours cleaning the manifold whilst I went to work for the day. Collected the car tonight, no engine light, car drives like it is brand spanking new, great pull and acceleration, could not have had this extra power without Alfa forum, thank you too everyone's comments as it has assisted me greatly. Cheers Dan
