Alfa 147 1.6 ts low on power
My 147 1.6 TS 120HP is low on power and I don't know what's causing it. The car doesn't pull very well on low revs, it pulls ok after aprox. 3500 rpms.
A pre-cat lambda sensor was replaced two weeks ago (also did a ECU reset with FiatEcuScan) but that improved only the MPG.
Just made a comparison with a 105HP version and it's a lot snappier than mine.
Tha cambelt and variator where changed 20000km (~12500 miles ago), it has a brand new Valeo clutch kit (changed ~8 months ago), oil and filter changes every 6000 miles (I do a lot of driving in town).
Also ... here's a video (phone crap quality) of the engine running ... does it sound ok to you? (Alfa 147 strange engine noise - YouTube
Later edit: could the cam belt be misaligned? It was done with cam locks but without a TDC gauge.
