Sorry for my english as well
! Please can you help me in my question. I want to buy 159 2009-2010 not over a 100000km but prefer min 30000km or max 80000 but can"t understand what engine i want. I read all forum treads about TBI and JTdm engine. At the paper this engines very close. But TBI have better acceleration, сar weight not so much (like a disel engine) and handlig and braking stability is good. Can see it on the road or track? For me this is one plus for TBI engine. Other is petrol never freeze in a winter and a have no problem with starth the engine -20 or -30 at winter conditions, the car with petrol warms and hot more quick especialy at winter. In russia when i buy a car at the other country i must pay 4500 euro for TBI engine and 5200 euro for a diesel engine (another plus of TBI).
2.0 JTdm have a better fuel consumplution, new good gearbox, very reliable, some problems 1.9 JTDm is fixed. have egr and dpf problems at 100 000 km(can cut it and remap
I am a owner a alfa romeo 156 2.0JTS and i am very afraid that JTS problems may have a TBI engine such as:
2009-2010 engines need some remap
at direct petrol injection intake very duty like a egr at diesel engine
98 octan petrol 95 not good for direct injection
very hard diagnostics when somethink is not work fine.
and what a durability of this engine? 100 000 km like a mitsubishi evolution or 250 000 km as well?
have no problems with oil consumplution like TS JTS engines?
