I hope someone can help.
I've looked at other similar posts on here and thought i'd ask for peoples thoughts.
The car is an 08 plate 147 Sport Q2 with the 1.9 JTDm 16v inside.
It's been developing a knock on the engine which has been getting gradually louder since i bought the car in Jan.
I know diesels aren't meant to be the quietest (ive owned diesels before), but this is something that sounds wrong. I've had people comment asking if the car is OK when i've picked them up.
When first starting in the morning its sounds like an absolute bag of spanners, and once warmed up its quieter but i can still hear it.
The MPG round town is shocking aswell, I can drive 25 miles down the M6 after work and the fuel gauge wont move, or if it does marginally. But when i get off and drive through town about 3 miles to get home its almost as if i can see it moving (it will drop abt 2 marks on the fuel gauge).
When sat on the drive for 10mins when warm while i was pulling stats off with FiatECUScan, the gauge dropped another chunk.
I've had intermittent hard to starts aswell. The engine would turn over for 2-3 secs then fire up with a plume of whitish smoke emitted from the exhaust.
I've attached a screenshot of the Injector Correction Values from FES, which from reading other peoples posts i think are high and could be causing my issues??
(These were taken after a 35mile run on Motorway & A roads without turning the engine off, so should be right warmed up!)
Now heres the best part.
I've taken it in to my local Alfa Garage, which is where i bought it from in the first place, and explained all these points. They've turned round and flattly said that they cannot find anything at fault with the car! I was gobsmacked.
Am i over-reacting, or do you think like i do that i have possibly 2 faulty injectors???
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.
