156 2.0 JTS- Mystery Fault
I am hoping that someone can shed some light on what may be wrong with my much loved 156, which I have owned for over 3 years with no breakdowns or other problems. The problem started when it just stopped after a journey of about 2 miles, no juddering or spluttering - just like it had run out of fuel. Called RAC and got it going with some easy start, was turning over no problem just would not fire. Ran for 5 mins while he got diagnostic laptop plugged in then just stopped again, this time would not restart at all various fault codes and reading that engine was running at 158F, which it obviously was not. Towed to local garage. Spoke to my usual Alfa Man and he advised Crank sensor straight away. Local garage have taken a look, it is not crank sensor and now they are struggling to pinpoint what is the problem, still not starting. HELP please! Before I fall out of love.
