thing is pal , EGR valves dont always bring up a code when they are fubard , anyone close by you could borrow a known good one so you can at least rule it out ??There is no error codes and the maf is genuine bosch part from alfa shop.I cleaned the egr valve and the spring moves freely and cleaned the map sencor no performance increase.and did replace upper and lower turbo hose.
Man that feels familiar... My solenoid was gooped up and stuck back together with 2-part epoxy adhesive because it had been ham-fisted before I got the car...I found the vnt solinoid at the back of the airbox and the one pipe going up somewhere but I see that the previous owner used pratley steel because the pipe broke off inside the solinoid.
I believe that fan is switched on by the ECU.. I'd get a laptop/smartphone connected to the ECU and check the coolant temperature it's picking up.Thank you now I know where the pipe goes thanx a million.I have another problem my rediator fan is not kicking in I replaced my resistor and fuses and relays still nothing even tested the fan from the battery and it works of the battery any suggestions please?
If its the big butterfly valve on the inlet to the manifold that looks like a throttle, then that's the anti shudder valve.The problem is my vnt system that is badly damaged but the egr something that's bugging me is the intake manifold has a flap and if the car is off the flap stays open is this normal on a jtdm or is there something wrong.
It will work just fine, but will generate an "Motor Control System Failure" message on your dash and illuminate the engine management light. Some people have blanked the EGR without mapping, and are quite happy to drive about with this error message present.Thanx if I blank the egr with the egr still on wil it work and Wat is the chances that the enjin doesn't get damaged.sorry for the stupid questions still new to the alfa world.
Loads! The 1.9 JTDm is a great engine to tweak with...Going to do this tomorrow I need my red pony back in action.what other mods can you do to your car to make it bit better.
