New cure for uneven idle & hesitation?
I bought my GTV 4 months ago with the above symptons & after 3 local specialists unable to resolve,(new MAF,clean out throttle body,change belts to check timing etc) I took it to;
TEL; 01509 672523
(Its actually located in North Leicestershire)
After a short roadtest, & a full diagnostic check, they suggested the "Variable Valve Actuator" was stuck.(Its situated above the inlet manifold & lubricates the cams) On dismantling it, they found it was gunged up with sludgy oil. They cleaned it out & now it idles & runs perfectly. They suggested I flush engine oil out to give actuator a good clean.
Although this is a small Fiat dealer, their mechanic is really switched on to Alfa Romeo. They have all the diagnostics, even for my Phase 1 GTV. The mechanic even took me in to the workshop to show me the problem. Nothing was too much trouble to explain.
I left very chuffed with this customer service.
