engine start fail.

ok, got into the car just now to come home from work and the engine fired straight away, revs rose to 1500 as normal, before dropping down to a stall within 3 seconds, it did this 6 or 7 times before it started normally (with mcsf which i assume is related)..

once it was going it ran as per normal with smooth revving in first 3 gears (in town, so didnt get into any higher gears).

any ideas? anyone in bournemouth who's willing to pop it on their cable and laptop to read the codes quickly?

afaik this has happened twice before, once when it was cold, and the other time it was wet, today is a lovely crisp morning,

alfa ownership = dentist visit.
expensive, sometimes painful, but at the end of the you've got a perfect grin on yer face.
