147 TS - Engine stops while driving
I have an Alfa Romeo 147 1.6 twinspark and recently I have been having problems with it.
It has happened 3 times and I am no longer driving the car until I get it sorted. What happens is that when driving for about 10km - 15kms the car's engine stops but all lights inside stays on. When I try starting the car again, it turns but does not start. After about 20 minutes when I try again, the car starts as normal but problem persists (engine stops).
I was in contact with a Alfa Mechanic in Cape Town, South Africa over the telephone and he advised that it could be the fuel pump overheating (stops car and stops from starting - no fuel).
Before I proceed with anything I would appreciate your advice on my problem.
If it is the fuel pump, then can anyone advise where I can get a second fuel pump in Cape Town, South Africa.
Looking forward to hearing from you guys soon.
Thanking you in advance.
