Alfa 147 JTD Mjet 16v - No power/Black smoke on hills.
A friendly hello to you all,
Sad news however, my alfa has died on me after 3 years of carefree driving - & yes the warranty has just run out!
Driving from Oldham to Stafford yesterday & there was hardly any acceleration between the gears, when I eventually got to 50/60mph the car seemed okay - then on any slight hill deceleration occured with black smoke from the exhaust to follow. Once flat again the smoke stopped & eventually a decent speed was achieved.
This morning I went to start it & it failed.
Automechanics seem to think anything from the turbo, airflow meter, EGR Valve or even a blocked cat - I think it will be expensive though.
PS The Amber engine light came on!
