1.9 jtd momentary power loss and knock !!
guys, after a little advice.
drove my 1.9 jtd this morning and parked up for a couple of hours, when i started it up there was a knocking coming from the engine and it felt as though it was a cylinder down, only lasted 3/4 seconds then was fine.....glowplug ?? or more sinister ? and doom merchants jog on, sensible answers please...
also about 2 miles down the road whilst accellerating in 3rd i suffered a nano second loss of power, a blip, cant describe it any further, then it carried on and drove very nicely thanks to get me home, 25 miles away.
now, i have never had an alfa before nor a diesel of any kind so don't know if this is normal, i am guessing not but would like some advice please. cheers
