  4. Engine Management

    Alfa Giulietta
    I know this must be a common topic but I would like to shine the light on my problem in the event that someone has gone through the same situation. Covering mostly motorway miles (60 miles a day) the past couple of months and the check engine light comes on half way through my journey. I reset...

    Can someone point me in the right direction for the best software & OBD leads, etc I need for a 166 so I can switch this off. If it also reads the Guilietta & Fiat Sedici too, better still.
  6. Giulia - recurring engine management light problems

    Alfa Giulia
    In July I purchased a 2017 Giulia 2.0tb Super. On test drive the engine management light was on and warning saying check engine. They said it was due to the battery going flat during storage. When I collected the light was out. After driving for three miles the light came on again, I turned...

    The car in question is a Brera 2.4 with remap, egr and dpf delete. Went to pick it up today after getting a full service and the engine management light was on, so I returned and the guy said he cleared/reset the warning light as it was to do with fuel cap, or something he unplugged during...

  9. Engine management system alert

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Apart from the fact that I can't seem to login here properly, and requesting new login details doesn't seem to work either (hence appearing as a new member), I am keen to know if anyone can suggest why my 2005 156 2.4 JTD has a permanent engine management alert ("go to dealer"). My local...

    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    Morning everyone. I have a 2010 159 2.0 JTDM (170) Ti. It has always seemed to have an intermittent flat spot around 3500 rpm mainly in 3rd gear on wards. I disconnected the MAF and it seemed to run better so have a new one to fit. This morning however, I was on my way to work, and I...

    Hi guys, Wondering if anyone can help me, my engine management light has been on for a few months now, resulting in DNA, Hill start assist and the stop start not working. I've had it in at 2 garages (non alfa garages) and they say they can't see what's wrong with it. I tried changing the...

  14. Buying an alfa GT with engine management light

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I'm still in the process of trying to find the right alfa 147 or GT. I've recently found a 2008 1.9 GT black line with 123k miles that looks like it could be good except it has recently had an engine management light come on. Apparently the car still drives like normal and the owner has been...

    I have a 159 2.4 Jtdm. Recently the engine management light came on when accelerating past 4000rpm. Had it plugged in and the fault code led my garage to a turbo boost pressure fault. Checked for air leaks and cleaned boost pressure sensor. The turbo operation is all ok. Tried replacement MAF...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Yesterday halfway home (after about 12 miles) I performed a high speed overtake of three vehicles and the car was running like a dream. Then I caught up to some slower vehicles and eased up, and then the car appeared to go into limp mode or similar - totally gutless and won't rev freely. Took it...

  19. 156 2.4 JTD 10v engine management warning on acceleration.

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Ever since I've owned my 156, when accelerating from lowish revs (especially in 4th and top) the engine management warning comes on and momentarily cuts the revs - which can be a little hairy when overtaking. It will sometimes do it in third but generally you can rev through it. I spoke to a...

    Hi all! I've had my Giulietta in for a diagnostic check as my engine management light keeps coming on and doesn't let me use any DNA function or start and stop.
