Wifes 156JTD 8v dies on M4 - Help!!!
My wife loves her Alfa and does a 100 mile round trip most days along the M4. Today at some unspecified speed (if you know what I mean) in the outside lane the engine just died. Scarey. She got to the hard shoulder and was recovered to a local garage. They scanned it for fault codes and nothing - all OK. They turned the key and vroom ... away it went, all OK. They ran it for 15 mins then it died again. It was then tea time so they recovered her home, we turned the key and drove it off the low loader fine. Hmmm.
My gut feeling is that it's the fuel supply, ? a relay cutting out when it gets hot , ? fuel pump as a (crank?) sensor malfunction should have shown up on the scan shouldn't it? Anyway, would really appreciate any thoughts before parting with any hard earned at Eurocarparts or my local tame Alfa mechanic. Many thanks.
