mmm. and Duh to myself. Thought people had stopped responding to the thread till I saw the page selection and realised I needed to select the second page of the thread...LOL. Well, cracked myself up anyway.
Just had cambelt and service done at Alfa Workshop. All in £564 for 90000 mile service with water pump, and they tested for the faults I listed, for free.... recommended garage.
All the replies are correct, EGR apparently not working at all and needs replacing, plus small leak in flexi exhaust, not enough to hear a blow, but between the two issues I get the exhaust fumes in the engine bay and rough tick over.
Fuel consumption issue I see from other threads is normal.
Gear change and clutch issue... well there just hapens to be an inch of free play on the clutch pedal that allows it to rise a little higher than the brake pedal, and it clicks as it risesd above the brake pedal, no real issue apparently, does anyone know how to adjust free play on clutch pedal, can it be done?
Thanks for the help so far. I have a grands worth of work to do on the car to make it up to scratch..ouch. Five pieces of suspension to replace too.
