Hi all, I am now on my second Alfa.. The first an S reg 156 2.5 V6 in Africa Grey, loved that car but by god was it thirsty.. Plus we had our fair share of trips to my local Alfa Garage for a special brand of wallet liposuction as only Alfa Dealerships can.. Good times.. Just for the love of driving and to prove to all my friends that the love for Alfa Romeo cars goes before all common sense, last year I moved on to my second Alfa.. My Red 03 Reg 147 1.9 16v Jtd Multijet.. Its a joy to drive and still makes me smile when I leave work..
It is playing up at the moment but am working on the problem.. It seems to be either the EGR Valve or perhaps the MAF sensor or worse a combination of both, I've had plenty of expensive experience with MAF sensor problems at the hands of my old car..
Anyways.. I've read quite a few posts on here regarding these problems and the people on here that have given advice I can only thank for helping point me in the right direction..
If anyone is interested I have a copy of Alfadiag and have been using this to help diagnose the problem.. perhaps I should be directed elsewhere (i.e another forum) but I would like to share my thoughts and findings and discuss with someone more experienced with myself..
