GT 3.2 V6 - cuts out after 20s
Hoping to draw on the wealth of knowledge on the Alfa Owner Forum to assist me.
My beloved motor, GT 3.2V6 (supercharged by Auto Delta), cuts out, complete shut down, after exactly 20 seconds!
What's that about !
The issue first manifest itself when I was driving home from work, three days ago.
The car coughed and spluttered and shut down, at speed.
I jump started it whilst it was coasting but it immediately shut down.
The only way to restore power was to start the car from the iginition, and yes you' ve guessed it, cuts out after 20 seconds.
Dammit who needs the atomic clock to synchronise time when you can use my motor.
The motor has half a tank of fuel.
The safety cut out in the passenger footwell seems intact.
The immobiliser seems fine as the car starts straight away.
The alternator, battery, starter motor seem to be fine, again because the car starts without hesitation.
I've dropped it off at an Alfa Specialist, Bonello, Newcastle upon Tyne.
He has checked the following:
a.Induction hoses for splits
b.Butterfly Inlet Valve
f. fuel pump
Thank you in advance for your replies.
