Post Fiat grande punto problems

Basically i have a 57 plate fiat grande punto 1.4 t-jet.
The car has all standard parts except a dump valve added onto it additionally instead of the re-circ valve.

The dump valve was fitted late July and hasn't caused any problems.
However a few days ago i realised that the car has lost a substantial amount of power when driving.

When changing gear the car is extremely slow to regain power and drive and i can also feel a strong Turbo lag and jitter/jolt when the car drives along!
Apparently it could be to do with the car misfiring.

Just wondering if anyone can help me on any possible explanations to this also when driving the "check engine" light flashes constantly when driving.

Re: Fiat grande punto problems

reeceh96.

Your answer is in the "check engine" light.
The reason you've had no answer from the forum is not because no one knows, it's because this question has been asked a million times (plus 1 now), and everyone is fed up with giving the same answer.

You need a code reader to decipher the check engine light.
Only then can anyone advise what the problem might be.

Re: Fiat grande punto problems

Don't drive the car if the engine light flashes. Read the error code.
Try putting back the stock dump valve also.
