156 2.0 TS

Hmmm Engine Management

I am currently having problems with my 156 alfa 2.0 TS. There is a constant yellow lamp (which appears as an engine management) lamp. I know it can come up for a various number of reasons. But day before yesterday, my car just stopped and would not start. Its nuthing to do with the battery since the battery is fine and all the lights on the dash are working fine. I already fixed a throttle valve sensor circuit problem which was diagnised by the code read (RAC).Then again after a week the same lamp lit again (this time for a different reason), it was for a speed sensor problem. Are these common in a 156 ?? Is electrical problem an issue with 156 ?? iam in 2 minds. But i love my alfa. Please advise.

Re: Engine Management

Didn't have any of these problems with my Twinny I'm afraid, if I was you I'd book it into your local alfa specialist (plenty of threads on here to find one) ... hope you get it sorted

Re: Engine Management

the throttle positon sensor problme si common, but not the speed sensor. both are easily and cheaply fixed so i would call them "good faults".

if it wont start then crank sensor is a common problem that causes it. when you crank the engine does the tachometer show anything? crank sensor is another "good fault", its cheap and easy to replace.
