Ok here goes....
Since owning my 156 after a GTV V6 I thought I had a car that was just lacking in torque compared to my GTV, that's why it feels like it's gonna stall when I pull away in 1st.
It basically has a flat spot just as the clutch bites and then you've got to give her more beans to pull away, usually resulting in the car kangerooing and leaving me looking like i've just passed me test and can't drive.
Anyway since owning the car for 18 months now I've had her in the garage about 4 times due to throttle body problems. You start her up and the revs go to 4000 rpm then drop down low and then as is most common, sits at around 2000 continuously. On one occasion it was taken out and bench tested and we found no problems from it??
I've used the ECU reset method several times and it saves me a garage trip, but I want to get to the bottom of this problem and remove it for good, as well as the aforementioned flat spot.
I know there are alot of threads on here about it, but I don't see any exactly like mine or hear any success stories in resolving it.
So should I bother getting a new throttle body or is it the sensor at the throttle pedal end that might be the problem, or is my car just a bit Alfa crazy?
Would appreciate any advice,
