156 misfires and stalls when hot

Hi, I'm new to Alfas and this site so bear with me. Through web research I knew about the problems these cars suffer from before i bought it, but after a test drive they didn't put me off! It's a 2000 2.0 manual with clim control and 68k miles. Some days it is fine, smooth with no misfires, other days, it judders throughout the rev range and stalls instantly when you press the clutch - embarrarring when driving in town. I have checked the MAF sensor and have cleaned it with electronic spray - there is no corrossion. It has new spark plugs and full dealer history so hasn't been neglected. Almost feels like fuel starvation. Do the fuel filters need regular replacement? There's no mention of a change in the service history, but it does mention Idle Releif Kit required. Anyone heard of this? Thanks, Paul
