Power losss update

Hi Guys, some of you may be aware of my lack of power at high revs,
Done all the recomendations that you guys kindly helped me with, vast improvement but still not right untill tonight when coming home from work, fast A road with good overtaking spots, one particular spot while overtaking a wagon the engine definately came on cam OH JOY!
unfortunately there was no other chance to try it again close to home.
With this information do you think it could be a relay or electrical problem?
Cheers Big Phil

Re: Power losss update

an elctrical problem is highly likely as you are driving an alfa and they are infamous for dodgy electrics

Re: Power losss update

thats a bit of a myth on electrics, no worse than anyone else like all the faults.

but anyway, sounds like the variator soleniod/connector could be at fault so possible worth checking those connection or replaceing it. Its on the top left of the engine, must be lots of threads on here about them

Do you get a diesel sound at stat up at all? means the variater itself is screwed
