Hi, I am new here, and also new to my just purchased 2005 Alfa GT JTS 2.0 SeleSpeed
I need to first fix a couple of items such as Engine Lights and SRS air bags is on, I've done some search on the web that I need to change the cambelt at 3 years or 36000 km intervals, so, at 56000 may also be a good time to change it for good.
I am not sure if I should also change the Variator? how often this will failed? I found the inlet plastic hose have cracks, so I will need to buy those also, should I buy new or used? the air filter box had been changed to a mushroom hanging behind the radiator, but I am unable to spot a new one that is for sale, so, probably get a used one from ebay. Then I need to carry out the cleaning on the intake pipe sensor. since the engine is a direct injection engine, I will have no vacuum hose to replace? The SRS airbag lights is on, so I will try the connector under the seats and in the boots, I think I can get away to buy a adaptor to clear the airbag code, if the connectors goes back to life, the the code should be cleared as this is a 2005 Nov vehicle?
I had used a generic OBDII and have the following codes:
Dual Climate control
OBDII Generic (Engine)
P1172 Rotor Control Fault*
P1173 Rotor Calibration Fault*
P1175 Cam Control Fault*
P1176 Cam Calibration Fault*
P0100 Mass or Volume Air Flow Circuit Malfunction*
P0560 System Voltage Malfunction*
P1694 Turbo Charge Relief Circuit Malfunction*
P1690 Wastegate Solenoid Circuit Malfunction*
Where I believes P0560 is wrong code throw, since the battery is good, voltage and electric items works great, headlights are bright
P1694 and P1690 should not be my business, as I am not a turbo engine..
Any good suggestions? I am located in Hong Kong, so, will need to pay a lot on postage, better to buy all items in one shop, but I guess this may not be fiesible, but found out this one looks pretty good:
The Alfa Workshop, specialist Alfa Romeo garage and web site
But AutoLusso have both new and used parts, not sure they ship international..
Futher more, I may need to revert the Brembo brake back to original Alfa spec., as the MOT will not pass if a bridge is used between the calipers and the hub, therefore, no better choice than using original ones..
Please comments on my project...
The dashboard odometer is always flashing, is this normal?
I need to buy original stereo back also...
