    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...

    Parts changed in March: MAP Sensor Overboost valve (Pierburg) New MAF fitted and tried, still low readings - two months ago. Issues the car has: - First gear seems to have no boost at all, other gears need some time to get up to boost and then the car pulls; not as it should but still the...

    Hello everyone, I think my beautiful 156 GTA may have her first electrical gremlin in 7 years of blissful ownership. It has developed an issue where an "Engine Coolant Maximum Temperature Exceeded" immediately followed by a MSCF message occurs very briefly at around 5,500 rpm simultaneously as...

    Hi, I am a new member and new to forums. I finally found the courage to buy the car I have wanted for a few years now and driving it worries me to death !! I have bought a lovely Alfa GT JTS Blackline on a 07 plate. Superb condition and only 62K on the clock. I have had it 2 months and the...

    I have a small problem with my 2.0 JTS GT. When I started the car it revved up to 3000 rpm by itself and then it slowly idled as it was supposed to. I thought it was just another alfa thing to keep it interesting :ponder:, since no warning lights turned on and the car was running and driving...

    2008 Cloverleaf 170 JTD Was driving sensibly, stopped at some lights. MCSF flashed up with EML on. Car ran normally and message gone after a few seconds. EML remained. Got to my destination a few miles away and did a scan on Torque Pro and got a single P0401-Powertrain Exhaust Gas...
  10. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    This happened a few times before, I would accelerate and plant my foot to t he floor and it would throw the error, that would go away after re-starting the car with no apparent power loss. Yesterday I was on a 1500m height (on a mountain, do n't know if it matters because the air is less dense)...

    Hello all, It's been one of the hottest days so far this year and I went to drive off in my 2001 1.6L 147 last night and the MCSF light came on, the car idled terribly and went into limp mode as I drove down the road. Drove the car back and plugged her in to my Torque app (quick and easy) and...

    Hi all, Looking to buy a nice 55 plate GT in dark grey. Very good price due to the below (about 65% market value) but although has MOT full history etc, it has some issues which worry me and I wanted some opinions as to whether to can the idea of buying it or not. It is the JTS 2.0 engine...

    Hi, I have had intermittent airbag lights and now a mcsf light on all the time. I want to buy a code reader from Ebay but there are vast differences in price between them. I can't fighure it out. Some are pc based and some are hand held units but they only do engine codes not airbag/ABS. I want...

    This is the pro- version of Torque, car is 2008 147 Sport Q2 (150bhp 1.9 JTDM 16v) with Bosch EDC16C39 ECU. Trying to check the source of my tappety-sounding cold idle, I pulled the connector off the injector on cyl #3. As expected the rattle vanished, which confirmed what I thought - that...

    Hi all On the dual carriage way this evening and decided to push it a little - got some good speed up and boom - engine control system failure and check engine light. No turbo kick in at all, and cannot get up hills without dropping down to 3rd at 4000 rpm and I live in Cornwall! It's a 2005...

  20. Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Apologies for what is yet another MCSF problem thread, but I was hoping someone could speculate as to what could be causing the fault. I'll keep this nice and short... I'm driving a 2005 GT JTD and the MCSF warning light only appears when I exceed... ahem... 70mph (approximately). The warning...
