Constant issues with 159
Long story short. 3 months ago my 159 diesel started hesitating/juttering in low gears at 20/30mph - with a kind of scraping sound.
First garage says 'dunno'
Second garage - DPF unblock/engine deep clean.
10 miles later... I broke down.. Car went into limp mode. Back to garage 2.
Garage says faulty EGR. Replaces it. I drive off. Car limps again. Back to garage, they say turbo veins are catching the casing and aren't spinning properly. I can't afford to carry on with this right now...
I take it to an Alfa specialist who says turbo not working properly, there's also oil in one of the hoses.
I take it to another mechanic. He says actuator on turbo was stuck shut, not working. Replaced actuator and now cars out of limp, drives like a beaut. Hesitation / juttering still there with scraping sound. 300 miles later car doesn't like starting.
Last 4 times I went out, 3 of them needed a good 5 attempts at firing her up. Climate control has also decided it doesn't want to play anymore either.
Anyone have any bright ideas? Or a grenade ? If it is the turbo I'll get it done, I'm just sick of throwing money playing a guessing game. There's some beer in it for anyone who knows a fix orrrrrr it's going off a cliff lol
