2.4 jtd advise most wanted

Hi all

I'm in the process of looking at a 156 2.4 JTD with 120k on the clock. the book is fully stamped but there are no reciepts. What the lifeline like on these engines and what should i be wary of at this mileage. Any help would be most appreciated. i only have experience of the V6 and know pretty much nothing about the diesel. Cheers.

Re: 2.4 jtd advise most wanted

I've got one with 215K miles on it and the engine still seems OK. A lot will depend on how its been used and serviced, but potential problem areas are the turbo - vanes can stick if not given a bit of welly from time to time...and the clutch is an expensive item to replace so check that out.

The engines are heavy so the front suspension gets a bit of a workout, this can lead to the sump getting smacked, so check for damage / cracks....

But they are a great motor if you find a good one!

Re: 2.4 jtd advise most wanted

the 2.4jtd is possibly one of the most reliable alfa engines there is.

The v6 is top notch for reliability also, but perhaps more cambelt dependant?
