hi all ive been having some issues with my engine management light it used to be intermitent and cause no real issues as it would always go away its self.
Problem is today i topped up the oil and water and got the kids in the car drove up to the lakes about a 100 miles to have the light come on and stay on it does go off but the engine bay gets hot fast and i have a week up here with no local alfa garage there is a local ats garage but i doubt they will help.
Does anyone have any suggestions on a local garage in cumbria or something i could look at myself i have basic tools in the boot and dont mind getting my hands dirty
Car has had a recent belt and variator its due a service but have been topping oil up
My 147 wouldn't always start when engine hot & broke down on motorway after hour of driving. Engine management light came on. AA diagnosed crank sensor fault. Had it repaired for £60 at a little local garage no specialist required. Good luck!
its really slow limp mode but works i drove about 80 mile with it on i found a local alfa dealer but they are not open today i have found a rac code reader on argos web site would this be any good to reset and tell me which part has failed ?
update ! Took the car to a local garage big thanks to the guys at graham box who read the codes and reset them for free ! It turns out its the maf so i drove to the local alfa garage and was told its £165 plus vat so just under £200 !!! I know dealers are expensive but im sure i have seen them for about £120 anyone have any input on price ?
next day delivery for £113 total not bad at all will i have to have the codes reset to remove the engine management light or does the battery reset trick work 45min battery off, 15 idle, 10 wait then take her for a hard drive ?
got a new maf today fitted it but engine management light is still on did the battery reset trick and it went off but as soon as push the accelerator it comes back on ? Does the code have to be earsed or does this mean ive just wasted £113 on a new maf ?
