    On my 2.4 brera when I accelerate my turbo bar goes to 1.4 straight away but as I keep accelerating my turbo pressure drops down to 0.8 bar. Is this normal??? My foot is not lifting off the gas at all for this to happen.

    So I've had the new manifold put in, the egr cleaned up and a full service this week and the car does feel quicker in picking up now. However, driving it today and I noticed it's smokes a lot when I put the foot down and the turbo gauge doesn't go all the way to 1.6 but instead tops off at say...

    2007 159 2.2diesel auto. After working perfectly the fuel started sticking in one place. Replaced the tank sender unit but didn't fix the problem. The needle does move on occassions but not enough to give confidence as to whats in the tank. For example last time I filled it the needle went...

    The internal temperature gauge on the dash has been reading as 60 degrees for the last couple of days, it's been hot but not that hot! Is this likely to be a problem with the sensor, and where is the sensor located?

    Hi all, Got my 159 Ti home last night and I've noticed that the water temperature scale on the gauge only lights up intermittently. It looks like possibly a loose connection somewhere, has anyone had a similar problem and fixed it? Thanks

    Hello lads A mate of mine (also an member of EPARC) has a very nice looking 159 2.2. He had a bad rough idle until we did an ECU reset, now she runs like a clock. But one problem persists, the fuel gauge, she don's work. We checked and cleaned all the relevant plugs etc, still nothing. SO...

    Hi all. Does anyone else's mirror selector switch rattle/vibrate in the middle position? Mine does and it's really irritating- is ok in both the left and right position. Just popped it if and can't see any way of curing it, short of replacement... Also, just noticed that the turbo icon on the...

    Hi All I have been working abroad for the past 2 months and came back to find my car battery was dead. Whenever I pushed the start/stop random lights flashed i.e hazard lights, indicators and a strange noise (which was the alternator). I managed to jump the car with my neighbours Range Rover...

    Fixed one problem now I seem to have created another!:cry: I was replacing the top hat bushes to cure a gear stick issue and I had the battery disconnected to get to it. Thanks geoffcapes for that pictorial thread! Put it all back together now I have a fuel gauge that says I am empty, it was...

    So I noticed that the boost reading doesn't seem to completely fill all the bars? At first it seemed to be three bars short when giving it the beans, although I did get it up as high as one bar short of full boost pressure accelerating up an incline. Is this normal as I always imagined it fully...

    I was running low on fuel and the old "Limited Range" annoyance shoting at me all the time, so for the first time ever i thought i would see how much i can squeeze into the tank. £82.50 later I had a nice full tank, guage needle pointing straight up, happy days. A couple of hours later i got in...

    Hello everyone, recently purchased a series two Spider and didn't notice at the time the temperature guage barely got to show above 50 degrees! I gather from reading postings on this great forum that the thermostat itself may be at fault rather than the guage. is there an easy way to check ...
