New 156 2.4 JTD owner - what do I need?


Just got the smile on my face as I bought an Alfa yesterday. 156 2.4 JTD SW Veloce. 2001.Rosso red with black leather - yummy.

It has had a recent 48k service and looks well looked after. I pick it up next weekend.

Will book it into Northants Alfa for the next service and belt change

Never had a diesel before so......
What type of oil will be best to use?
What kind of regular maintenace will she need? (Are all cars female?)
Some of the lacquer on the roof rails is peeling. How do I treat this?

I love my 156 2.4mJTD too.....reading all the past alfa feed back it seems the three things needed are TLC , regular servicing and a good servicer / maintainer. This may not be the main dealer as they are expensive (and variable).

If you don't have Goodyear F1 tyres on it they are worth the change next time (infinitely better than what the car came fiited with. Offer a good compromise bewteen wear and grip and wet performance is superb.

have fun (and angel tuning eventually

Yes, remap is essential! As standard, there ain't much there beyond 3,500rpm, but with the remap it will pull and pull all the way to 5K! You can also take off the cat and replace with a straight pipe, make it sound a bit nicer too

Haven't done this myself, I think Okenora has though.
