Temperamental Alfa 156 2.0 TS

Hi to all.

I have a 2001 156 2.0 TS 5 spd which is an absolute gem to drive with sports exhaust, bilstein shocks and springs and nice fat rubber. Lately i seem to get periods off slower revving and pulling on some days especially when days are warmer or engine is warmer however on cold mornings it pulls like its hooked behind a jet plane.

the handling is phenomenal but i am wondering whether it has some funny sensor problems. its done 120,000 kms and i haver never changed the MAF sensor. how would i know if it needs changing or whether its the problem anyway?

can anyone help a fellow Alfisti.....

Could be the MAF.
When you next have the problem, stop and unplug the electrical connection to the MAF sensor and see if the problem goes away or is reduced.

spray the MAF with alcohol spray to get it back to its former glory. much cheaper than buying a new one.
