Alfa 156 2.4 JTD 1998/180K miles.

Hi all. Car recently started with following symptoms :-

Flat spots, loads of smoke when accelerating through flat spots, Surging, Temp gauge appears to be reading higher than normal and I'm not sure but possably "Pinking" when throttle hard down.

Had some of these symtoms a few years ago and had the MAF changed.
Took a gamble and fitted another new one - £60 and absolutely no change. Expensive "poke and hope" !

Seen refs to EGR and temp sender in this forum but not looking to replace the whole car trying to sort!

Any ideas before I take inevitable AR main stealer ECU diagnosis route?

Cheers

Derek

check all the pipes going to the turbo for cracks or splits
Cheers - right on the Money! Split on the underside of the turbo hose, just before it goes into the top of the engine. Superglue and gaffer tape have sorted, at least until the spares shop opens!

Excellent - thanks
