I believe its a 1.9 16v JTDm?

For the engine 937A5000, what options are they for replacement (its believed to have ingested a swirl flap)?

Are the same engines found in other Alfas?

Also, the version is 937AXNLB 30B - any ideas on what this specific code might mean?

Thanks :)

Yep, 147 Q2s got the 1.9 16v JTDm as did most 147s and GTs (from 2005-ish IIRC), 156s oddly never had swirl flaps at all. Apologies to hear that it's swallowed a swirl flap, those later cars with the plastic manifold fair worse due to the metal flaps. Earlier cars had a metal manifold and plastic swirl flaps, which tended to fair a bit better. If the engine is not salvageable, a good specialist will have replacement JTD engines on the shelf ready to go. They tend to range from £300 to about £500 quid for a good second-hand engine, plus a day or so in labour to fit it I would have thought (y)

If the engine is known to be good otherwise then perhaps best to repair it. Not the end of the world and Autolusso normally have exchange heads in stock ready to go. You'll need to check the turbo as well because if you're unlucky the flaps can pass straight through the engine and lodge in the turbo vanes.

It's a real pain but doesn't spell disaster.

It was a good engine, the head was full of dimples, piston also.

Second hand engines seem to go cheap, so it might be worth dropping a replacement in.

Do you know anything about the engine code or compatibility?
