    I'm getting this icon so I'm guessing dpf blocked on a 1.9 159 ?
  2. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Garage found the engine light was on due to DPF being 90% blocked. Forced regen only got it down to 70%. Can anything be done to improve this, or am I looking at a new dpf in the near future?

    Hi, I seem to have blocked the washer jets by trying to eek every last drop out of the them probably drawing up the crud. I've checked they are connected ok in the bonnet so wondered if anyone had found a way to unblock them ? Might give them a blast with the jet wash hose unless there is a...

    I have someone that keeps harassing me and I have just added them to the "Ignore List" But when they found out they immediately sent me an abusive Private Message !! I didnt read the message although I reported it to Moderators (Assume it was insulting etc etc) Is there anyway of blocking...

    I have recently purchased the 159, but it has a blocked radio. Is there any way of sorting this without going to a dealership?

    I believe the subject of blocked folding mirrors was discussed many times,with many people ending with a snapped mirror base. Due to the weather conditions in the UK and being very close to sea, accumulation of limescale salt and subsequent corrosion of metals is frequent.The same thing happens...

    I have an Alfa Spider 2008 and the radio is blocked. The screen says blocked/wait. It will not allow me to enter the 4 digit pin code I have. I took it to the garage and they tried a reset which didn't work. They also disconnected the battery but the same message remained. They have said I...

    Since i bought my car ive been keeping an eye on the DPF, as far as I know the last 12,000 miles ive done it hasnt done a regen. The blocked value on MES is always showing as 0.0% does this suggest a faulty sensor, the DPF is regenerating too often or possibly the DPF has been modified in some way?

    As post says 159 with "Blocked Radio / Wait". With regards to the "Wait" does it need to sit with the ignition on or something or will removing the power supply and reconnecting it reset the timer.

    Removed the pipe at the fuel pressure regulator that comes from the fuel pump and noticed it wasn't really a powerful stream and just been thinking that I've had to remove my 145's pump in the past due to the little gauze filter being blocked on my fuel pump restricting flow to the engine.. My...

    I am wondering if it is possible to block an EGR valve just when I want to. This is because I want to achive the horse powers provided by blocking it and a cleaner engine but letting it warm up fast enaught especially on winter. First tought was if I rewire one of the two wires that controlls...

    Hi all I've blocked off my egr valve today, it's a 2,4 10v So no warning lights. Do I need to turn off egr on the ecu? The car feels a lot better at low revs pulling off! is this Just me thinking it's better in my mind, or is it not Complete until egr is off? Cheers

    Well it's a bit long story... In resume, these were the symptoms of my 2004 Alfa 147 Selespeed 2.0 1. I put key on MAR position and a really loud sound starts (was like the normal pump and other unusual loud electric sounds), dunno if it matters but it was a wet and cold night, the problem...

    Found this information on DPF Cleaning Solutions I think it will be helpful as this is a continual issue.. How to clean the DPF yourself. Before you read any further it is important that you understand that the DPF warning light appearing is a completely normal thing to happen, the DPF...

    Really annoying when one idle jet or progression holes get blocked. Few weeks ago I had two fuel filters, before and after the pump. Thought it was overkill as I was changing them. Hey so what has happened like four times now? ?? Friggin idle circuit blockages. Some dirt is working its way...

    Hi again, I live in SW LONDON and the closest ALFA dealership is in Kingston on Thames KT12 it's called HMV ALFA ROMEO....Anyway I called today to ask for a quote for an EGR block and delete and DPF removal and they told me not only they never done it before but never heard of such thing and...

    Hello! I have got 939 with "Radio blocked / wait". I made Proxi Alignment because my odemeter was blinking. I read that I can put new code after 24h. But in car and on table when radio is powered from DC power supply, it turns off after 15min. Radio was powered off on few days without any...
