This will be the Alfas last trip to Europe with me as the owner!!
Ever since the engine was replaced last year it has been nothing but problems.... From Alfas crappy suspension to badly made parts and now to a performance problem which has dogged me since January!! i cant stand not being able to drive the car the way it used to be before the engine blew!
I went now to blank the EGR but one of the bolts holding the engine cover has become smooth and almost round (makes sense seeing as its always being removed!)
Ive gone to countless mechanics and countless diagnostics and nothing comes up
If i end up replacing anymore parts ill end having replaced the engine for the third time.
Today the car has really disappointed me, yes it has never actually broken down due to its own fault, nor has it ever had a crank sensor failure, starter motor failure etc but i just cant afford keeping this up.
Now the ARB bushes are gone again, it creeks when its cold, bounces at the front if you hit a shallow part of the road and most importantly for me the performance issue is just unresolvable, it just makes no sense to me and no one seems to have had this problem. perfect power in 1st,2nd and 3rd - by perfect i mean this, in 1st you can floor it to the redline no prower issues at all, then 2nd more or less the same story and then in 3rd its perfect to 3000 then it hesitates then slowly starts to climb again. 4th is the same as 3rd and 5th is basically just laughable.
first i thought MAF, changed no difference, EGR changed no difference, VNT solenoid and pipes changed, no differences, ECU reset no difference aaaggggggghhhhh!!!!!
I think if i cant resolve it be the time i get to Ireland next week im going to have it scrapped as i wont let anyone have these issues. #im sorry guys for the rant but ive got no cigarettes and im just really disappointed that i cant resolve it
