My 159 does the same, but i have the 1.9JTDm engine, only seems to do it now and then, and only when cold! always seems to do it when im at work tho, so give my work m8s a reason to moan, TYPICAL ALFA!
i have tried a double heat but this also primes the engine in with fuel, you can hear a pump doing something, so will a double heat prime the engine with too much fuel? as when i do this i seem to get a puff of black smoke, but never do off a single heat.
i have tried a good blast down a quiet road and also just cleaned out my EGR valve with some carb and injector cleaner, will find out in the morning if this has helped!
looking to get DPF removed and RE-map to remove EGR alltogether, should also give a few MPG more too.
