So, thanks to the lovely lady at the RAC my 159 is 200 miles away in Chartres at the local Alfa/Fiat dealer.
I'm over near La Rochelle in a lovely (ahhem) Nissan Quashqui thingy.
Lots of cup holders and gadgets, including a lovely rear view camera and sat nav, but unfortunately only 110bhp....
The RAC have been brilliant.
Called last night, truck at the hotel for 9am, loaded with me and taken to the Alfa place.
Taxi picked me up and dropped me at the Hertz place where a hire car was waiting for me.
Awaiting the call from Alfa (in french...) On Mon/Tue to see what's up with the 159.
Ah well, we are here and it bloomin gorgeous! Just a shame I'm not in the Alfa.
Driving it round the block this morning it felt fine, so I think the split pipe idea is a good one, as it heats the pipe loosens up? I'm hoping its simple anyway.
Turbo related, but no smoke. Just no boost, the wastegate isn't opening/closing, so no pressure.
Will update as I know....
Good luck getting the 2.4 back soon. Hope all is ok!
