Hey guys and gals
Great forum, glad I found it !
I recently purchased a second hand Alfa Year 2000 2.4 JTD, 114k miles on the clock, everything seems to be in order and I'm generally pleased with the car.... apart from recently (only had the car a few days) when revving the car it seems to 'cut' feeding fuel (similar to an RPM limiter) at around 3.5-3.8k RPM in most gears and the "fuel management light" has come on permanently (sometimes it goes off by itself after hitting this barrier of sorts?!).
I do know that the car had a new turbo, airflow meter, eco valve? and some other turbo related parts, radiator etc fittred about a month ago.
It idles smoothly and the power that is delivered seems powerful and smooth up to the aforementioned 'cut off' problem...
Also.. whether this is normal or not, but at around 30-40 mph in 4th gear (very low rpm say 1200-1300rpm) the car is a bit "shuddery" until I get above 40mph, perhaps this is normal and i'm not used to the diesel yet hehe?
Unfortunately my nearest Alfa dealer is 100 miles (living in the Highlands of Scotland sucks sometimes!), so was hoping for some prepatory advice to fire at the dealer before I get there, or ideally some advice that I can mention to local garage that are only 2 miles from me, I know my local garage has a machine to read error codes?
Look forward to chatting on the forums. Many thanks!
