Alfa 159 1.9 JTS Starting Issue
Just bought a '06 Alfa 159 1.9 JTS last month and love it except for the fact that the second I start the car (when it hasn't been running for a couple hours, i.e. cold start I guess) it runs at really low revs, almost like it's about to cut out but never does. It feels like I'm inside a tractor with a diesel engine chugging away. The first minute of driving then is really shaky...when I push the accelerator to the floor I get hardly any power, then a burst of power, then hardly anything again.
After switching on the engine now I've started to just wait 60 seconds before taking off to avoid the lack of power when I press the accelerator. After literally a minute everything is perfect again though.
Just wondering if any other 159 owners had this problem and if there's a solution. Any help here would be appreciated.
