2000 X Alfa 156 Throttle cable problem
Hi everyone This is myt first post so please forgive me if i do or say anything i shouldn't , 4 Nights ago i bought my very first Alfa Romeo , always wanted one , cant afford a new one so ive waited until i could afford a good Alfa 156 T spark ,
I havn't driven it much as it was only four days ago since i picked it up but last night i drove it 9 Miles and parked it up and left the car for about 3 hours , then i got in the car and it was quite chilly so i decided to run the engine on tick over for a bit to warm it up , however it kept cutting out so i put my foot on the throttle tro help it along as i know alfas hate the cold.
I couldnt get it to tick over so i decided to take it up the road and started to drive home everthing was fine and then i heard like a thud/pinging sound and my throttle peddle went loose and i couldn't rev the engine , ive tried calling the feela who sold me the car (he is a work from home car dealer) he hasn't got back to me , the trouble is im rubbish fixing cars ,
Can anyone tell me what they think it is based on Model and year??
How much you think it would cost to fix?
If its an easy fix can anyone give me the heads up?
Thankyou , like i say i am a Alfa Forum virgin and i really need some help
p.s The car starts and will Idle 1000RPM and then 1500RPM then 1000RPM ,
