Cylinder Pressures

Am still trying to sort a host of problems with my 2.4 156 JTD

A fuel injection specialist is blaming low cylinder pressure on a heavy grey/blue smoke from my exhaust when cold starting.
The car recently had a cam belt snap and the head was rebuilt by A for Alfa.

What i need to know is what cylinder pressures should i expect.
All 5 showed approximately 400psi when tested yesterday.

Alfa dealers will not give out this information as it is `dealer only`???

I need this info urgently to proceed with a diagnosis.

All injectors were checked and fine!!

Please help

Re: Cylinder Pressures


wouldn't the place that tested them know?

If not then contact Alfa UK. The dealers should have no problem giving this out.

it might also be on the specs on the worksop CD, so someone on here might be able to look it up for you

400PSI seems very low?
