    RESOLVED: ’04 1.9 JTD M-Jet Sport - Uneven turbo I bought a nice Alfa three months ago, its the one with 140BHP. One month ago I started having problems with an uneven turbo. I have gotten the famous fault code Motor Control System Failure. A description of the fault: I start the car, drive...

    Hello Guys Im thinking of getting myself a couple of gauges for my motor (oil temp, volts and boost). My question is where do i tap into to get an accurate boost reading and also what gauges do you recommend? Thanx.

    Can anyone with access to ePer confirm that for a 2005 156 1.9JTD 16v M-JET (150hp), the oil filter part number is: 46796687. (I find the selection of the 156 in ePer a little unclear). I have a local Fiat dealer - presumably they will stock this as I assume the engine is used in some Fiats...

    hi all, welcome to my first proper post as I am today, a proud owner of a nice 147 jtd 16v M-jet (2003).. my first ever alfa romeo.. I have a niggling sqeek, which is directly linked to engine speed, and have tried squirting some soapy water on the aux drive belt, and the squeek goes away for a...

    Mine sticks to 70C and rarely hits 80/90. Is this normal. Have been looking at a few threads where TS and JTS's needed new thermostats. Only thing is, the previous owner had a a new coolant temp sensor fitted on mine only about a year ago! Any ideas?

    Hi just joined. Had a 33 years ago - 2nd best car I ever owned. Did 100K miles in it. Went into the wilderness for a few years with some French thing. Now wanting to get back into driving again. I THINK I want a 156 2.4 mjet. Got about 6K to spend. Dunno if that buys me anything. Advice...

    Does anyone know the correct part codes for either Bosch, NGK or Beru for a replacement glow plug for an Alfa 156 1.9JTD 16V Mjet 140bhp. Late 2004 model. I have looked on the various manufacturer and aftermarket sites, but there seems to be confusion with the drop down menus for 8v 16v and 16v...

    Hi, I just bought my first diesel car and is an alfa 156 1.9 JTD 16v MJET 140bhp @ 53000 miles. I find the car idles constantly @900rpm. It is irritating to feel the vibration on the steering wheel and the interior. There is no power lag or falt spots and pulls like a train throughout the...

    Guys, After a blast down a dual carrage way this morning i pulled up at an island, went to move off and it felt like i was in 3rd gear. Checked it was in first and tried giving it a bit more boot and nothing. Looked out the rear mirror and loads of greyish black smoke. I'm thinking turbo...

    Guys I part exchanged the wifes KA for a GT JTD. I rather generously gave the wife my 147 1.9 M-JET which has the same engine as my new GT. The GT though is really slow off the lights untill it hits 2.5K revs and then shoots forward while the 147 M-JET is much quicker off of the lights. It is as...

    A friend of mine is impressed with my 2003 2.4 JTD SW and is now looking for a 156 1.9 JTD M-Jet circa 2004/5. He has seen one or two advertised as 140 bhp with 6 speed boxes. I thought the 6 speed came with the 150 bhp engine. Can anyone clarify this?

    Hi guys, Everyone with more than 100K Kms, JTDs... I feel your pain. Search for "Hi alfistas", where I got my EGR fully out and cleaned it. I was happy with a job well done, but my thermostat needed attention, and I knew that much soot didn't end at the EGR... Yesterday, after the EGR...

    Looking for a bit of advice. A couple of days ago I got into the car after it was parked for a while and couldn't get into reverse. Moved forward a bit in 1st and then it went into reverse OK. It's happened a few times now but always after it has been standing for a while and if you move...
