Alfa 156 2.4 JTD (10V) 2003 - Lack of Power
Need some help / pointers.
My Alfa had an intermittant fault / engine light - computer pointed to the EGR Valve.
Replacement was sourced, upon getting garage to fit at the same time as a new fuel filter, oil filter and free oil (trying to treat her right). Garage found that old EGR valve had actually be blanked off by a home made piece of metal and some mastic.
Work done and new parts fitted, upon driving out of garage all ok till I started to get moving, then it felt like the car was running out of fuel, it would go and stop (engine running, just no power)
Took it back, no fault codes, but MAP sensor was reading at a fixed figure, no adjustment. As this was the only thing that seemed wrong on the computer this was changed. Still have the issue.
Can anyone give me/the garage any pointers on where to look, they are not an Alfa dealer, but have always been goo din the past, although like most modern mechanics, they seem to be only able to work off PC suggestions. If it was a renault or an Audi they seemed better due to knowledge.
Cheers for any help or suggestions
