obd and alfadiag. confused

I have been reading various posts regarding the obd cable and which software is going to be best to diagnose my car with.everyone seems to have an opinion on this but I am sitting here with a blank look on my mush..
my prob if anyone read my previous post last week is the tdc sensor.I fitted a new one and broke down again 2 days later, so, bought and fitted a bosch one, all was great until today. my missus called to say she'd broken down, yep. appears to be the same issue.
I dunno if I'm fitting it wrong or theres anuther fault with the second unit.I aint no great mechanic but have done alright until now .I am at a loss.the car just lost power with no warnings on the dash 10 mins into her journey,she said there was a weird smell in the car(kinda sulphur type smell).
I would like to buy a cable and some software to try and diagnose the fault instead of blowing all my hard earned cash getting someone else out. I aint sure which cable and software to opt for.keeping in mind cash is a huge issue here..my car is bleeding me dry quicker than my daughter soon will be. .... your ideas wud sure be appreciated...

Re: obd and alfadiag. confused

you need:

1. software from AlfaDiag Alfa Romeo Diagnostic Software [ €60 ]

2 a KKL interface, modified to work with Engine & Airbag ecu.

I sell a fully tested cable, as does rarebear.
