156 Turbo Problems
Hi everyone, I have a motor system problem which my garage tells me is the turbo unit, how ever I'm not so sure as I only have power problems at high speed or 5th and 6th gears and not straight away. I know when it goes because when I go to excellarate there's very little power even with my foot to the floor and when the car is in lower gears the turbo doesn't kick in till 2000+ reves. When it happens all I need to do is pull over turn the engine off and on again, then I have the power back untill it goes again. This only happens as I said at high speed on the motorway etc.
They said there was also a lot of diesel dirt in one of the ER valves that is at the begining of the turbo unit, but to replace this I will have to replace the whole turbo unit because they are one unit.....can any body help because I don't belive this is correct.
They say the computer reading says air flow turbo, so again don't think it is the turbo its self and have replaced the airflow meter for safe measure.
As per usual Alfa Romeo head office is as helpful as ever. The model I have is a 1.9 JTDm 156 2004.
