Question about 2000 Alfa Romeo 156

Open Question

Alfa 2008 159 JTD - ongoing problem. It started a year ago w the engine light then progressed to the light and a loss of power and poor performance. I was told that it was due to carbon build up on the turbo. Cleaning that was a bandaid fix so the manifold was replaced. Within a few hundred kilometres the sporatic sluggishness/poor performance returned. Problem exists down through all gears, when it happens, and noticably starts on inclines. Also deactivates cruise control (slowing cutting off on small incline). The 159 is a delight to drive but this problem and lack of honest assistance from Alfa servicing is driving me nuts. Surely this must be happening with 159s the world over if it is the manifold which I'm told is alloy. Please enlightening me. My 159 is neither driven hard nor has high kms 68000.

Hi and welcome to FixYa!

You may just have a vacuum hose issue. If you have a vacuum leak the car will definitely run rough. Please do check and observe very carefully if there are loosen or worn hoses. Please do replace them to resolve the issue.

Hope this helps and thank you for using FixYa! Have a good one!

My Alfa 2004 computer box one of the pins is burnt what can I do?


if a pin is burnt on any ECU engine computer
inside a diode may have failed

ECU incl ignition key for Alfa Romeo 147 1 9 JTD 115 hp 5 doors 2004 Bosch...


find a used or referbished unit with same numbers on the outer casing as your damaged ECU
the replacement has to be from the same year and engine type as your car and same number of pins and plug ins

auto electrician might have the equipment and time to referb it

when fitting a used ECU
you may need to re sync the system with a diagnostic tool

My 156 sportswagon is burning fuel badly i put 2 gallons in and only got 31 miles for this i can hear an air leak coming from top of engine would this be a likley cause for such poor fuel consumption it's...


an air leak would weaken the mix of fuel to air so giving you better fuel efficiency but a poor power output.
was my last answer not to your liking, re **** fuel consumption on all fiat/alpha cars.but it is true, ask any owner........14.7 average mpg.......£205 road tax.....(tax it for a year and quadruple its value...)
