Same engine, same problem
I'm not an Alfa owner but a Saab owner who's got the same intake & swirl flaps problems.
I own a Z19DTH engine (Saab 93 1.9 TiD 150 HP) and ready to change the manifold due to P1109
I came accross this post and was very interested because it seems it's not necessary to
get the timing blet off of the car :-), as they claim in the Haynes.
The procedure from Pubsinger is very clear but I still have some questions.
If you don't mind helping a Z19DTH engine owner ;-)
- it is necessary to remove the engine mount (to get the timing blet cover?)
- if so, need to jack the engine ?
- I've read also it's necessary to drain the cooling fluid, but it seems it's not?
- what is the role of the woodruff key?
Thank you vert much for any help!
