156 power problem
As I am new to Alfa's, i need some help.
I bought a 2001 156, 2l TS yesterday which drove perfectly on test drive and the drive home. Took it out this morning, drove about 25 miles no problems however on the way back the car lost power and wouldn't rev above 2000. Turning the iginion off and on again helped for about a mile or so and then the same problem. Managed to get nearly home when there was a bang and total loss of power.
The belts are fine, no warning lights or anything. However a mate had a look at the spark plugs and they seem to be well past there use by date.
The car turns over however doesn't run, and makes a terrible rattling noise.
Would appricate any comments on what the fault could be.
