2005 156 1.9 16v JTD Multijet high fuel consumption
Hi, I'm hoping someone can help me. I have just purchased a 54 plate 156 Lusso jtd 1.9 16v multijet. The car has done 130,000 miles but has been very well maintained. I've had it under a week and seem to be going through a lot of fuel driving to and from work about 9 miles each way (driving sensibly), the engine reaches between 80-90 degrees so I don't think it's a faulty thermostat. I read that the MAF can cause problems and may need cleaning?
Would a New air filter help?
The car had a service at the beginning of the year but has not done many miles since.
I'm on a tight budget at the moment so can't fork out loads on a mechanic so anything I can do myself I will, but I'm not a mechanic, so basically any help, suggestions or links would be most appreciated. Also the car comes with a basic three month warranty so I may be able to get it fixed under warranty I'll have to take a closer look at whats covered.
