MAF / Clutch problems
hmmm....My second Alfa and already had Airbag ECU replaced and all 5 glow plugs on 2.4JTD Sportwagon 2000.
Took it to Monza Sports (Brilliant people) and they told me that clutch riding high and slipping. Also Turbo seems sluggish until it hits 3000rpm then it flies and then holds back for a while and then gets going again!
Clutch seems to slip slightly, mainly in 1st and Reverse and they suggested Air Flow Meter knackered. I had it replaced in my old 2.0TS and did not seem to make a lot of difference.
I am not sure how it is supposed to feel (Clutch) in this car as I have nothing to compare it to. All I know is that it does not start engaging until I am almost off the clutch. If I floor it, the rev counter does not go mad either. If I travel along at about 30 in third or fourth gear the car judders and jerks horribly. Is this normal? It does not happen all the time though.
Disappointed with performance though until it gets above 3K revs as it feels so heavy and hardly moves. Then you get a kick and it goes.
Any suggestions or confirmations that it could be Air Flow Meter?
