Slow Pickup on 16V
yesterday I got to drive my 2.0 16VTS for the first time (insurance reasons - not old enough before!) and I have to say I am very very impressed, I suppose its quite a step up from a boy racer 1.4 Golf!
only little thing I am wondering about is that it does take a few seconds after I hit the throttle for the engine to come alive and pull away - can be a bit nerve racking when pulling out on a busy junction and you need to go!
I believe it is just a characteristic of this engine because in our 156 with the same engine it is exactly the same if not worse.
I canít see anything wrong with the cars, the sparks have been changed - havenít looked at any of the induction parts yet though.
only thing that I could put it down to is that maybe the timing is ever so slightly out because when the cambelt was last done I donít think it was by an Alfa specialist, but im probably a mile off here, im getting the tensioners done on Tuesday so il get them to give it a good look over!
What do you guys think - Squadra?
Sorry this is long but any help would be greatly appreciated!
