  1. Is 300k km on the clock too much for JTDs? (2.4 20v in particular)

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Found a FL 156 with this engine. 290k on the clock. Clutch, flywheel, belt etc replaced, suspension replaced for 3500e. Is it a better buy than a 1.9 16v with 140k but unknown service history for 2800e?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT

  8. A few basic Qs about 2.4 JTDs

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Having introduced myself in the 'Newbies' section I was directed here to assist me with a few niggling questions before I hand over my 'hard-earned'. 1) Are there any people on here with high milage 2.4 JTD's (ie 125,000 miles+) and what problems have they had (if any).?? 2) timing belt...

  11. Calling all 100K+ JTDs

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi there, I'm just about to have my 96,000 mile service on my '52 (2002) plate 2.4jtd. Apart from a suspension knock (which only really appears when I'm not accelerating - possible engine mount?), the car is very sound. It's done only motorway miles, has it's fair share of stone chips on the...
  12. What Turbos are used on JTDs?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Just out of interest at the Moment does anyone know what model Turbos are fitted to the following cars 150bhp 16v, 175bhp 20v and the new 200bhp 20v. I was thinking about the Brera lag and wondered if it still have a VNT or whether Alfa just added a bigger normal turbo hence the lag, I was...
  13. Do JTDs perform better after warmup?

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I have recently moved and find myself doing less commuting mileage than I used to and now I seem to struggle to hit 500miles to a tankful of fuel, this is a considerable drop for me as the car used to do around 550-570, now my new route is flat and traffic free so I'd think I would be equally as...
