Own Alfa 159 2.4 JTD M-53 years old living and working in York
Previously owned 156 2.5V6 for 4 years which was lovely.
Still not sure about the 159.
Have had Alfas before namely the Sud and the 133.
Joined the forum for advice regarding some issues with the diesel engine.
The car is lumpy with extremely light throttle with the engine under load. Switch to cruise and the issue disappears. I am not a petrol head but assume the issue is fuel starvation or throttle linkeage problems. Firkin dealer says can't find anything wrong using our diagnostic gismo.
Has any other 2.4D 159 owners had any similar issues. Apart from the leather seat rattling when unoccupied and occasional creaking dashboard I like the car a lot. Better ride than 156 and much more solid. Not as fast as the 156 though in my opinion and runs out of puff very quickly. The toys are particularly pleasing on the Lusso version which I have.
