Re: 159 2.4 JTDm
Hmmm, here’s my cent’s worth, hopefully a little more helpful:
1) The recommended oil is Selenia WR 5W/40 fully synthetic, available in litre bottles from any Alfa dealer. Only use a fully synthetic as this is a turbo unit after all. Do check the oil level frequently, you should be ok on the JTDm engines but best to check anyway.
2) Rusty Alfa bolts familiar problem - best to get hold of zinc plated ones from a reliable motor factors or take a look in ebay. Make sure replacement bolts are the correct specification for your hubs/wheels.
3) Service intervals are 18,000 miles but I change my oil more frequently, with an interim oil/filter change and checkover between each major service. IMHO a good idea to keep the oil clean in any engine, let alone a turbo unit!
4) Ask any Alfa Dealer and they will give you the menu pricing for the major services.
Hope that helps.
