156 SW JTD

First Alfa

Hello, I'm Jim and I got my first Alfa (156 1.9 JTD SW) last September. Great car. It has Ti trim and it's been great to drive and reliable so far...

Last week I booked it in for the 24K service. There had been an annoying "rev limiter" type cutting out at +/- 3700 pm, which was diagnosed as a faulty RPM sensor. This was changed but didn't fix it - they reckon the control unit is faulty so thats to be changed this week.
On way home from dealer Saturday, the engine died and "VDC system failure - go to dealer" came up on the display. Restarted car and all seemed well. Fingers crossed they will sort this out.
I've replaced the plastic tray and fitted a Zeatek aluminium undertray and this has fixed the grounding on bumps and yumps. Well worth 90.
Anyway, thats my hello, and thanks for an excellent free resource. I tried the UK owners club last year but have let membership lapse as your site is better!
