Re: Lack of Power
But is he an Alfa specialist and has he tested the emisions yet???
A reset is an easy thing for you to try, turn the key to ACC for 90 seconds, then OFF for 90 seconds, next start the engine without pressing any pedals at all, leave the engine to idle for 15 minutes, then take it out for a good drive. Don't deviate from the timings as they are important.
Next in line is a throttle body clean, a 6 year old car could be quite coked up in there, be gentle and it's easier when it's removed.
If that fails, get the emisions tested as I think you may have the beginings of a Lamda fault, I take it the car will rev trough to the red line?
