First time poster Here. Great forum lots of useful stuff in here. Wish I had found it long time ago.
I've looked around the forum but couldn't find an answer for my problem.
My alfa 1998 156 TS won't rev past 1.5 rpm.
If I accelerate, it will start "kangarooing".
The idle is very low (about 0.4 rpm) and dies if engine is cold.
I called in a mechanic, he checked the cam position, and other things. It turned out to be the injectors needed recoding which he did in 2 minutes by unplugging the connectors and re-plugging. The car worked as new after.*
I drove the car for about 50 miles maximum, until the problem returned.
I called him up, he told me that the injectors need cleaning.
I asked if it could be a faulty sensor or maf, he said no.
I bought a ODB2 cable and will have it diagnosed soon.
Any help will be very much appreciated.
