  1. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I've just done a manual regen using Fiat ECU Scan. The level before the regen had gone up from 80ish% to 100%! It had been stuttering slightly on the way to the industrial park (might as well melt someone elses tarmac!) After 8 minutes at 3500rpm, but with no obvious black smoke, the process...

    Just bought a 2007 159 2.4 JTDm - fantastic drive :thumbs:. Lots of firsts - first ALFA; first black car; first 6 speed;first italian the list goes on and most importantly first diesel!!!! But a simple question that even after reading loads about the diesel particulate filter pre purchase...
  3. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi I've just bought a 57 plate 159 2.4, and after less than 200 miles have had a number of issues. 30 miles into the journey home from purchase, the engine went rough for 2-3 miles and I couldn't get above 2000 revs. It cleared after a while and the rest of the journey was ok. The following day...
  4. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi, quick question, oil change warning came on during the weekend (bit surprised tbh), got the oil & filter replaced but now need to get the warning message reset, rang the closest dealer and they said I'de have to drop it in to get it reset, they also said they might have to do a forced DPF...
  5. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Last night during a DPF regen I noticed that the car was juddering / spluttering. I was going uphill at about 40/45 MPH in 4th. Dropping down to 3rd sorted it. It's not that the hill is steep & I'm in too high a gear, just a gentle gradient. car has done 12K miles and I have not had any DPF...
  6. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    driving along the motorway the other day, pulled into the services & dropped off the missus at the entrance, noticed a strong smell of hot / burning rubber. Thought someones car smells. Then parked up & got out, went to the boot & noticed the "hot / burning rubber smell was coming from the back...
  7. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Simple question - on my 1.9 JTdm, how is the diesel added to get the DPF temp up to where it needs to be to burn off the particles ? Is it injected into the DPF directly, or is it injected into the cylinders during the exhaust stroke, or something else ? Hopefully there is someone who knows...
  8. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi all. All this talk about regen, DPF issues, etc., have me a wee bit worried now that I have placed an order for a 159 1.9JTDM. Current, I drive a 07 Audi A4 2.0 TDI Quattro 170bhp (and have been for almost a year) and have not ever felt a regen happening, etc, nor encounter any DPF, EGR valve...
  9. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Hi guys (and gals!) Had my Brera 2.4 for a few days (still can't believe my luck!) and have been scouring the threads on this very useful forum. I have seen many references to the DPF regeneration but is says nothing in the handbook about this. How often does it occur and how do I know that it...
  10. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    The 2.4 SW has now done 670 miles...driving yesterday (with the current consumption screen on) noticed the instanaeous mpg drop to about 19 whilst cruising along an A-road at 50 - 60, and the average mpg started dropping like a stone for the next 2 - 3 minutes. Overtook someone and perhaps a...
  11. Tuning & Upgrades
    Had my 159 mapped by Nigel at Angel in May (i think), and within a week the car attempted a regen and spluttered and kangarooed us off the M5 and into the Services..... came back out after an hour and was fine... Took it back to Dealer who said it was EGR and promptly ordered new EGR and...
  12. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    I think my DPF regen'd for the 1st time today....i've only done 500 miles in the 1st month of ownership but was shocked when it happened. Happened by luck just to have the constant economy on the computer and it dropped from around 30ish to sub 10mpg and stayed there for a few mins....could...
  13. Alfa 159, Brera & Spider
    Occasionally my Brera's exhaust note will change from the normal muffled sound to a much deeper bass note, especially on the overrun. Is this the DPF cleaning process? It seems a little random, but always goes away after a few miles. I actually prefer the exhaust note whilst it's happening...
