147 Motor Control System Failure Help
New to Forum.
2 months ago i bought a 2002 Lusso 90 miles which had Cam belt changed at 80,000. There was one lady owner and the car has been serviced at ALFA garage every year so i though i had a good deal.
One week ago after i drove 50 miles i stopped at a shop and went back out to the car and it would not start MCSF came on. I then sat in the car for 15 mins and the car then started but the fault stayed on.
Next day it went off, on sat i drove 5 mins to fill up and again would not start. Same problem again i waited for 30 mins and it then started.
Next day it went no fault, today on my lunch break drove 15 mins got some food and headed back to work.. It cut out this time in the middle of a busy road... The police pushed the car around the corner and again i waited for 20 mins and off i went.
I now know i need to get it looked and and have booked in for a Diginostics £20 + Vat (Small garage).. Some questions.
1. Any one any ideas on what the fault could be?
2. Will the Dia give an exact problem?
3. I have read some stories on here and i am concerned that i could go through 4/5 parts before finding the fault.
Thanks in advance i had a bit of a horor story with a BMW before so hoping the problem can be identified easily and fixed.
Overall how is the 147?
