HELLO evryone, I have posted this in the introduce section but I thought I would put it here as well Hope this is OK ?
2000 2.4 JTD
Low boost power ..well non existant when warmed up a bit better when cold , but no big push as it used to. If you accelerate hard it bogs down & will rev through to 4000 rpm cleanly but no boost at (minimal) but if you ease off & let it build from 2200rpm you make faster progress but still not as it should be ??
I have looked underneath at all the hoses & they are all intact with no splits or holes etc, they all still have the original hose clips as far as I can tell.
The hose that is coming from the Egr (I think) & then joins the air inlet pipe to the turbo has oil at that Joint ?
I have unplugged the maf when its warmed up & is worse when unplugged , it uses loads of fuel but there is no smoke at all, there never has been though .
I have been looking at the turbo side , I hope its not that
The engine sound a bit noisier to me , no real boost & uses loads of fuel.
Hope some bard can help I'm stumped & I dont want the local Alfa getting the Apprentice to learn on my car ,can't afford it !!
