  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    So I’ve just bought my first Alfa 159, a 2.0 JTDM with 73K miles for commuting. Is the build up of the gunk (or EGR deposits) in the inlet manifold causing them to crack, or is it just their age? Do the manifolds reach a higher temperature when filled with gunk creating a weakness to cracking...
  2. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hello! It has come to my attention that my egr valve don’t act like it’s supposed to. I’ve changed it thinking that was the problem but no luck there. I’ve read the OBD2 and it says a PTC% of 3.9. I connected my multimeter and it said 1.07 V. It’s always the same PTC, flooring it on the motor...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all, I have a 2.0JTDM 159. I have recently been having some low rev stuttering (1500rpm) with slight acceleration. Reading on here seemed to point to faulty EGR valve. So I removed the egr and cleaned, cleaned the Map sensor and stuttering is much better although not completely gone. Was...
  4. Alfa 145 & 146
    hi guys Im busy fixing up my 145 2.0L ts 96 year model. The previous owner said they turned on the adjusting screw with a Philips head. Is there any way you can tune it on your own without having to go to a garage as this valve helps with fuel consumption. Any help will be much appreciated...

  6. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    So I'm working on a 2010 Vauxhall Insignia 2.0 CDTi, I know it's not an Alfa but I'm on this forum anyway and it's pretty much the same engine as the 2.0 JTDM, so I hope you don't mind me asking here. The VX forums are very quiet unfortunately. I bought the car for a £500 with a snapped...
  7. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi A couple days ago I cleaned my EGR and MAP sensor, as I had some time on my hands and have heard its a easy enough job to do on your own. Took em apart, cleaned them. MAP sensor was fully clogged, I sorted that out. (see image) Took off EGR, cleaned it. I noticed a couple of things: 1 -...
  8. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, I'm going to be picking up my new (to me) Giulietta tomorrow. It's a 2013 JTDM 140. It's been remapped by Autolusso to 180bhp, and it's had an EGR delete. This will be my first diesel, and to be honest I'm not 100% sure what the EGR delete does, and what the benefits and/or drawbacks...
  9. Alfa Giulietta
    I'm going to take my EGR valve and pipe of this weekend, and wondering if anyone else had done it - pointers, tips etc. It's a 2011 Giulietta 1.6 jdtm-2. I've attached a photo. Am I right in thinking that the bolts visible are the ones that need removing + the hidden ones underneath on the...
  10. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi all - my 2010 Giulietta 2.0 JTDM sprang a check engine light a couple of weeks ago - MultiEcuScan revealed a couple of EGR valve errors (P0490 EGR Valve Control and P0487 EGR Valve Position). P0487 would re-occur pretty frequently. So replaced the EGR valve at the weekend with a new OEM...

  11. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Apparently Halfords do no stock diesel EGR cleaner any more. Spoke to one of the staff and he confirmed that they only have the petrol version, no explanation as to why though. On a happier note, I bought the petrol version anyway and cleaned mine, took half an hour but goodness me it's messy...
  12. Alfa Giulietta
    Hi, Recently bought a 2012 Giulietta. Had a few problems that I’ve managed to sort myself but unable to do this. Got the obd and MES to clear some fault codes. One was the EGR which I’ve taken out and cleaned as well as the MAP sensor. Put it back in and cleared the fault codes but they’ve...

    My alfa 159 1.9 jtdm has been in with alfa romeo for 2 weeks now. The first issue i had with the car was a loss of power when accelerating and eventually the car would stop and engine warning lights would come on. These issues only happened when car was up to temp, car drove fine when cold. Alfa...

    Hi everyone Was hoping someone could assist with the above. I was having issues with the EGR valve on my 05 GT 1.9jtd. I blanked it for a few months and the error appeared on the dash as expected but the car ran better than ever. The car needed to pass its NCT so I purchased a new EGR valve...

    2009 Alfa 147 Ducati Corse 1.9jtdm I drove home from my girlfriends this morning, and around 4 miles in to the 26 mile trip I suddenly had a severely limited amount of power across the whole rev range. It stayed like this the whole way home. I then got ready for work at home and on the 3 mile...
