two questions waiting for answrs regarding 156
recently heard some strange noice from left front wheel of my alfa 156, so i went to garage, and the guy said the upper control arm (like a Aluminum triangle) is loose, so when he turn the wheel, we can see some little shake there.
he suggest me to replace this part, but i wonder if there a possibility to be fixed? since it is loose, how about just tighten it?
when i speed up very quickly in a higher gear, for example 3 or 4, then the engine start shake, follows a signal "engine control signal failure, go to deal". but after few second, everything seem ok again.
so when i pass other car on a high way, i must change to gear 3, if in city, i usually change to gear 2), otherwise, the engine will shake, and anoy signal comes again.
ps: this only happens when i step the accelerator very hard on a higher gear.
waiting for you answer, thanks guys
