loss of power again
Can some of you guys please confirm my suspicions.
My 1.9 140hp jtd's turbo used to get spinning at about 2000rpm and produce a real good surge of power now the surge isn't there but from higher up the rev range it seems normal.
I'm thinking the air flow meter so as some of the posts on this subject say to disconnect and see if there's a difference but when i do this the car will not run,it starts for a second then cuts out.
The next suspicion is the egr valve but i'm not sure where it is can anyone tell me or post a pic.I've read about blocking them off,is this a short term solution or can it be done permanantly as some of the things i've read about them say that they sap power and blocking them off is ok until mot time.
PLease help guys as i've just got the car back(monday)after the timing belt snapped and i'm starting to regret buying it.My previous alfas have all had their problems but i think this ones a pig in a poke.
