Alfa 147 - Worst Mistake of My Life?
I just bought a second hand 2003 Alfa 147 manual T.S with 85000ks. We bought it on Thursday and on Saturday it stopped. Engine stalled and died at some lights, refused to restart (lights etc came on, engine turned over, but wouldn't start). Fuel light came on, even though fuel registered on first bar above empty. Tried refueling, car then started again, ran for about five minutes sitting on the side of the road and then died again, and then wouldn't restart for love, money or increasingly abusive cursing. Towed to Alfa dealer in Brisbane, Aus, who after an entire day still haven't even lifted the bonnet to look at it, and have been rude as *** into the bargain.
Any advice on what the problem could be. Recommendations for good mechanics in Brisbane?? Reassurance that buying an Alfa was not the worst mistake of my life??
