159 2007 2.4 JTD - same problem as everyone else....
I'm guessing another Inlet Manifold issue? I've pretty much read all the threads on here re: 159, and manifolds, but wanted confirmation whether a new manifold actually fixes this type of problem?)
I'm a total noob with cars, and need some advice. My 2007 159, 2.4 JTD (39,000kms) has been a city car (yes, my wife drives it, and I've heard all the things about driving a diesel in the city, etc) and has been in limp mode for some time now with Engine light on.
been to an Alfa mechanic and diagnosed P2013 error code, he said it could be the manifold, or the actuator... so we took the cheaper way out first, to try the actuator.. that didn't work, so now the bigger job is required... a new manifold...
This is what has been done so far and has cost be $$$$ already:
Replace Manifold Valve Actuator
Free up seized intake manifold valves
Remove EGR valve to access shutter controller, clean electrical connectors
Now, I'm sourcing (I'm from Australia) to buy the a manifold, and come across these part numbers:
Manifold no. 55210197
Gasket no. 55190771
I'm hoping these are the right ones.... and if this is the only way to fix the problem I have?
Is there anything else I/the mechanics need to consider?
Thanks in advance.
