My alfa 156 jtdm will be due for MOT in a few weeks time so this Saturday I booked local garage to try sorting all the issues.
The main problem is that my engine sounds heavy as if it was on the huge load when accelerating. There is loss of power and it doesn't sound normal. I use to get error code P0238 when taking over and then it gets into limp mode with engine light.
Almost month ago I changed vac hoses - one was leaking air. But sadly I didn't know there was one somewhere at the back of engine - I ordered more hoses and will get it changed this Saturday.
I also bought innotec turbo clean set - it will be done this Saturday too - even if its not needed I hope it will get some life back into my car.
Next thing is egr valve - I will ask it to get cleaned too - do you know any cleaning spray or etc to make job easier? Like on ebay wynns egr cleaner? Anyone tried it? Any use of it? If can recommend me something on ebay - I work everyday so delivery sounds easiest way to get it.
After that I will ask to clean all sensors - just in case they are dirty and some minor jobs like changing few bulbs that were different make - one gives yellow light, other white
Also if there will be some more time left ill ask to remove intercooler hoses to inspect them as while they are on they look fine.
Hope I will pass Mot and get rid of that "heavy engine" as its so annoying to drive on 2.2k revs when it sounds as 5k plus moves like a snail..
If someone could advice me what else could i try doing to solve this issue and P0238 - I and my alfa would really appreciate your help.
