156 suddenly losing power

I am a new alfa owner with a 156 "w" plate and had the car about 4 months, a problem has now developed and I need help. Whilst driving, the fuel injector light comes on and I lose power but this clears up when I restart the engine. This is a very intermittent problem, the only good thing is this does'nt happen at speed, but my car has the selespeed box so I have to stop fully to restart. I have tried swapping the fuel injector relay with one of the fans but same problem. Please can anyone help

Mass air flow meter possibly. A cheap part to replace.

Unusual for a MAF sensor to produce any error lights or codes.

The light is a general engine management light, not specifically injection, so it could be anything.

Rather than guessing, you really need it connected up to the Examiner or even AlfaDiag if you know anyone with it.
