Alfa 159 2.4 200Bhp Idle and other problems
Hi for some time now I have been having issues with my 159 2.4Jdtm 20v 200Bhp (06)
It has been rough sounding at start up for many months now, although as late it more often cuts out after first startup.
I have also had problems the fuel pump relay burning out, had it replaced then 25k later it burnt out again, its done about 20k on its current relay and still going.
Also I get a humming noise sometimes at the pipe that goes into the fuel filter (I had this pipe replaced for a shiny new one but it did the same)
Also the idle is very and down, and there is a stutter on lower rev's, pretty much regardless of the gear its in.
Today I have the engine terra cleaned, and I have to say I noticed a difference overall where the power delivery had increased and very smooth once it got above the guttery rev range as mentioned above, tick over is also still all over the place.
also I should add sometimes when going up steep hills the cars sometimes starts to shutter
(egr valve has been cleaned)
Has anyone one else experienced the above issues? and would you care to share your solution?
Thanks in advance
