Re: OBD connector?

the ECU ?
On the left hand steering, the connector is in the midconsole.
It probably is mirrored in yours and will probably be located in the midconsole passengers side. remove the panel and it will be there..

Re: Alfa 164 2.0 TS won't start

read out your values when the engine is running.
Does it read the right temperature ?
Do the lambda reads the right mixture ?
Does the steppermotor, or idle regulator open up when starting the engine ?

Re: 164 Q4 rough when cold and rpms drop slowly

best is to read out the lambda's with hot engine. There you can see wether you have a leak or not.

the starter is not on the imobilizer. so, or the startrelays is broken, or the wire to the starter, or the starter itself.

Re: 164 24 v hard starting mainly hot

well.. actualy, you might have vacuum leaks. disconnecting the temp sensor, will put the ECU in "cold" mode and therefore more petrol will be added. I would first search in that area... besides the normal rubber hoses, also spray brake cleaner on the bottom of the chrome pipes, under there, they als...

Re: 24V QV: Engine stopped and lights went out - help

Re: Oil Pressure

Am I correct that this spring only regulates the max oil pressure? 55 PSI at cold startup ik normal. Low oil pressure is caused by a faulty oil pump, internal component failure or worn/leaking engine. Most likely the pressure transducer is the cause of the low pressure indication. Any cause other t...
