    Have problems with Alfa 156 2.0 ts 2001. I have excessive smoke coming from the exaust on first start up, then it dies down after a while but is still there. The smoke just smells like normal exhaust fumes to me so I dont think its coolant. The car failed its MOT on emissions and the results...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi, I have read most of the smokey diesel posts but they don't seem to have helped with my problem.

    Hello all. My 147 has just passed it's MOT but now has developed a bit of a problem. On acceleration and going up hills the exhaust is throwing out loads of black smoke and sounds "blowy". There's also a "chugging" sensation as if my Alfa can't quite speed up. This "chuggin" stops if I do some...

  13. Smokey JTD - Not the turbo hose...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi all, I've noticed that on acceleration (not necessarily hard acceleration) I get a plume of black smoke out of the 147 (JTD 8v). Having read all the similar threads on this it seemed the Turbo to Intercooler pipe would be to blame, but it's not - the guy at the local alfa specialist had a...

    Alfa GTV & 916 Spider
    Hey guys, Been having a few problems with MPG and a flat spot and occasionally getting a little too much exhaust fumes, very wet at that giving me the impression of too much water in there. At the same time it smelt like it was running too rich*. The flat spot I experience is when first...
  19. Smokey 156 2.4 JTD

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Guys Every time i start the car after leaving it for 2-3 hours the exhaust emits a good amount of blue smoke for 5 seconds or so it also struggles to run on its 5 cylinders for the same period. If you gently rev the car it emits more blue smoke. I`ve put this down to valve guide wear! The...
