GT JTD lack of low end power - MAP sensor?
Since owning my GT I've noticed a gradual reduction in power below 2000 revs.
I removed and cleaned the EGR a couple of weeks ago but that didn't improve things at all - it wasn't actually that dirty at all which makes me think the previous owner may have had it deleted from the ECU when he had it remapped.
I also had the car serviced at Alfatecnico the other day and they couldn't tell me what was causing it.
I've since read a couple of threads about unplugging the MAP sensor to see if this is the problem and then cleaning the sensor if necessary...
Firstly - where is the MAP located for me to unplug it? Any photo's would be great.
Secondly - this will surely throw up an error on the dashboard... will the error disappear as soon as the MAP is reconnected, or will I need to get it cleared via Fiat ECU Scan?
I have an ELM327 cable and the Torque app on my android phone, but have not dabbled with FES at all yet.
Thanks in advance for any advice.
