Engine dieing on my 156 after few minutes...
Hi, my 156 starts to fail on me ... been a few weeks now and it keeps geting more annoying.
Basically .. i start the car, let it run for 2-3 minutes, engine cuts off. ... plus almoust every time i start the car cold engine cuts out instantly if i dont give it a little push with the accelerator... some mechanic told me that the system that heats up the engine on start u know like the old shock cars use to have its tyred and old and wont operate like it used to ... i keep thinking it is the crankshaft sensor i changed a few months ago .. changed for a used part so im assuming the sensor is not good enough ... any toughts ?
