Some Technical Issues
As I am new to the whole being an Alfa Owner I have a few things that need clearing up.
Firstly, what is the normal idle speed for the 2.0 TS Selespeed at running temperature? I think I have a sticking thermostat as my gauge will not move while on a run. Could the lack of temperature be contributing to poor fuel consumption? e.g. cold start valve staying open for longer.
Secondly, my gear select display flashes. Only on first and second gear and not all the time. I did 250miles today and it started flashing 300 yards from my house.
