As I am well pleased with my 20v 156 I am getting every little niggle sorted and getting it running spot on.
So so far..
New Behr stat,
Sealed thread on climate control water temp sensor
Changed EGR (Jammed shut)
Changed Cambelt and tensioner.
Checked VAc hoses on VGT solenoid/actuator (bloody top pipe plastic was brittle and came off in my hands -temp fix while I wait on new one.
Got Parts coming for;
Oil and Filter
Silicone lower turbo hose
Silicone hoses for new VGT Valve (5 and 3mm)
Clean and grease VGT mechanism
Sort intermittent glow plug error
Going to inspect and clean the shutter valve and area around on intake manifold (if it looks really bad then may take off manifold and clean whole thing - or maybe hold out for a 2nd hand one to clean up).
Rad is clean with fins present (looks like an aluminum rad tbh), All 4 suspension arms were done last year, gonna get round to Aux belt and tensioner but belt is good and spring now working.
Is there anything else that would be a good idea for me to look at or check? Only thing I can think not on list is clean VGT inside turbo. Oh, that reminds me I have the full Fiat ECU scan so am going to check the correct Injector trim values are in the ECU and throw some injector cleaner into tank.
Anyway if I was being a total perfectionist is there anything else you would add to my list? Any other obvious things for me to do or check?
