Alfa GT 1.9 JTD Stutter and lurch
Name's Greig and new to this forum and to Alfa ownership having just bought a 55 plate GT to replace my ageing BMW 3 coop and have a question.
Now, from what I understand (and could be completely wrong so happy to be corrected) the 1.9 is actually a Fiat lump, and the same one that's used in some Vauxhall and Saab models...
During the test drive it was perfect, smooth (except the odd clutch) and stutter free.
Driving home I hit the MWay and decided to open it up - odd thing happened.
As I accelerated above 2k revs the revs lurched to 3 and then dropped immediately back to 2 and started climbing naturally. The car also stutters/hesitates when maintaining a constant speed at the 2k revs mark.
Any idea what could cause this odd lurch?
Thanks all from am Alfa virgin.
