    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi Guys, Ok so the car I purchased had been standing for like 9 months. It is very smokey, and the smoke does not dissipate quickly. The smoke is a whitey colour. I have taken the oil screw-cap off and there is no cream, also have taken off the coolant screw cap and from what I can tell...

  4. Smoky 147 JTD MJet - help!

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Ok so I brought the missus an 147 JTD MJet and it produces black smoke under hard acceleration. I know some diesels do this but this is too much I think. I suspected the car may have had a crap remap so I pulled the file, emailed it to a friend for him to take a look at. He confirmed the file...

  6. smoky 147...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    So I just noticed this on my 147. Only bought it last week, 2002. At times there is such an excessive amount of smoke coming from the exhaust! Maybe it's just the weather, but it seems way smokier than any other cars on the road. Then when engines off, smoke still comes out. Does this mean it's...
  7. Smoky 147 JTD

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi All, I've just bought a 147 1.9 JTD 8v at auction (I know, I know...). On the face of it, all the problems seem fairly minor and a new cambelt/full service is going to happen at the weekend. One thing that did show up on the journey home was the military grade smokescreen behind me...
  8. 156 JTD Still smoky after MAF and EGR change...

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    I had all this done and still the smoke is quite bad. Its done 42000 miles and I know that you do get smoke under hard acceleration but even in 5th from 50 - 70 its like a wood burner thats just had damp paper thrown on it. Could it just need a good service with a bit of engine flush I wonder...
  9. Smoky on startup

    Alfa 145 & 146
    'ey up. When I start my car (1996 1.6 8v Boxer) from cold, I get a lot of smoke from the rear until I have driven off and cleared it through. After that it is clean as a whistle, nothing on the overrun and only a tiny bit on high revs. Where's it all coming from?? :confused:
