159 2.4 power problems and DPF regen every 3 miles
I've just bought a 57 plate 159 2.4, and after less than 200 miles have had a number of issues. 30 miles into the journey home from purchase, the engine went rough for 2-3 miles and I couldn't get above 2000 revs. It cleared after a while and the rest of the journey was ok.
The following day after around 30 miles at good speeds, the same thing happened again, except eventually lost all power and wouldn't restart. Eventually towed home (however seemed to start again once it had cooled down).
Taken to 2 garages, the last one an Alfa main dealer. No codes recorded - the only thing they can find is that the last 5 DPF regens have been 5km/3miles average.
The DPF was 84 % clogged, so they forced a regen, then took it out for a run when it did an automatic regen (not sure why it would have done one so soon after a forced one?) DPF now down to 22% clogged.
Going to pick it up today to try again. Anyone have any ideas what may be the problem? Ready to hand it back if it happens again...................
