I've been having a lot of trouble with my 159 the last qouple of months. It's very hard to get the engine started after a qouple of hours of standing still, and its kinda juddery when driving on low revs.
It's been in and out of the workshop, without it helping much. They did mention that the injectors MIGHT be to blame, but I dont want to go down that route just yet.
So I was thinking I'd have a go at cleaning the EGR-valve as this might help me solve it.
So my question is, WHERE is it located? I've got the 1,9jtd 120bhp version...
(For those interested: My 159 is incredibly hard to get started when its been standing still, say overnight. Outside temperature doesnt seem to matter, as it was just as bad during the summer as it is now. Strange thing is: If i turn the ignition on (without starting the engine) and let the car run through all the checks and everything until it says "Press brake or clutch"....THEN start the engine, it starts every time. But even then it does shake rather violently and it doesnt sound good, rather like its getting choked..
If I try starting it as soon as the pre-heating symbol disappears on a cold engine, its a no-go. It just coughs, shakes and well...dies.)
All tips are greatly welcomed!
