Since the forum automatically keeps showing a "Why not say Hello" message all over the place, I thought I'd say "Hello"...
I guess I should also mention that I have just recently (5 days ago) purchased an Alfa 156 2.4 JTD. A V plate with a mere 136 BHP.
Does not push me into the back of the seat like a V6 would, but could not say no to the price and since I do loads of miles, it made sense...
Ref. the Does not push into the back seats etc.
Having read the forums, I am starting to suspect the Airflow Mass Sensor, though I did try disconnecting it (or at least I think I did, assume it is in the big black pipework towards the front right. Above the big black box) and I think it improved things a little, but not as much as I anticipated.
The engine still feels like it is being held back by somthing as it goes up the rev range. There is also a hesitation a little after the 3000 rpm mark.
Will probably post this stuff on the main forum at some point, but any replies in the meantime are most welcome.
And once more, just want to say Hello
