alfa 147

147 jtdm 16v

147 was running really sluggish no power no boost so this what I done I hope May help others
Replaced egr (euro parts 55 quid) original egr pin stuck not working after cleaned up
Removed battery tray got to maf (pain of a job)
Replaced maf car ran worse smoking engine was idling up and down
Wrong maf won't buy online again to save 30 quid
Cleaned old maf thought try it out back on car
Started up but eml light on
Then after good drive eml light dissapears
Prior to this was also getting the engine system control failure too
This has now gone
Had abs and summit else flashing up wd40 brake pedal switch light gone off too
Oh was having airbag light on this was just wd40 drivers seat and passenger seat connection underneath
Total repair bill 55 for egr and 7 quid for cleaner and wd40 8 quid air filter too
I am not mechanic just had a go at repairing maybe to tight to pay garage

Not tight at all! Why pay someone to do something when you can do it yourself! My only advice is if you save on labour don't skimp on parts! Good job though fella!
