High idle + low power
My name is Joris and I own an alfa romeo GTV 3.0 V6 24v phase 1.
Recently I found out my MAF was broken and changed it for a new one. ( the expensive one... )
I also did my cambelt + clutch and it drives really good !
One thing that has been bothering me is that the idle is quite high when the engine is warm ( aprox. 1000 rpm )
But it idles really smoothly..
But together with that, my car is missing power, it seems to have enough low end torque but higher in the RPM's it still feels like it missing.
An alfa specialist came by to get a drive in my car, and he thought the catalytic converter is collapsed or clogged due to the misfires that happend with the broken MAF.
Also under full throttle the exhaust makes an ugly rasping noise and the mid console gets really hot..
I bought a second had catalytic convert and I'm gonna swap it next will, will my high idle/low power problem be solved?
or does anyone know what might be the problem?
Thanks in advance for all your help, appreciate it !
