159 2.0JTDM engine issues

Hi all,

After 6 (fairly) trouble free years of driving petrol Alfas, I have moved into a 2.0JTDM (170) 159 SW and have quickly run into some issues! I have read the sticky topic on diesel power loss but I don't think I've found a solution there...

The first issue was a 'fuel temperature sensor' error which put the check engine light on but did not affect drive. This has now been replaced, however the error has returned intermittently.

Secondly, a 'fuel pressure sensor' error which put the check engine light on, and resulted in the car going into 'limp home mode'

Thirdly, a 'turbo pressure sensor error' which put the check engine light on but did not affect drive.

These problems have occurred quite frequently in my first week of ownership. The car runs fine as long as revs are kept below 2.5/3k. Full throttle above 2.5/3k results in one (or more) of the above.

Does anyone know of something that may link these errors together?
