Alfa 156:- air intake problem???????
I have had my 156 for 2 and a half years without trouble. I was going to work on motorway doing around 70 when i heard a noise that can only be descibed as the air filter falling off.The car sounded like it was gulping air in when i tried to accelerate but seamed ok when cruising around the 60 mark.I struggled getting it above 60 but for fear of damage i only tried a couple of times. I called the AA out but he had no idea at all. I got the car home this afternoon and took the air pipe off and cleaned it replaced and checked all clips were tight. Started it up and no change at all.Still sounds like it has no air filter on at all.Hope this aint terminal as i will have to go and buy another alfa as other makes dont quite come up to scratch.Please could somebody advise me of the remedy i am looking for the i can get back to driving.Thanks in advance
