some minor concerns regarding my 2.4
I have a few questions I was hoping some of the more seasoned Alfa owners may be able to answer.
I've had my 2.4 JTD Ti for approx. 6 months now and do not regret owning it for one second, however, like anything newly purchased one always the requisite questions...
1. The temperature (outside ambient?) gauge (between speedo and tacho) consistently reads between 3-5degC higher than what is reported as actual. Why would this be the case? I have been told this is due to the location of the sensor under the bonnet or something to that effect.
2. When the centre console box vent is turned "off" air still blows into the box. Is this a sealing issue with the vent itself?
3. Will rear a parking sensor fault code display on instrument panel in the event of failure?
4. How do you know when your air con needs regassing?
Regards and thanks in advance!
