I am in no way an expert, I just tend to take advice when I'm given it on here, and have learnt a few things along the way.
Please take your car to an alfa specialist, as rockhopper suggested. Not a dealer, not someone that 'does a few Alfa's,' but a specialist. You say they are overpriced, they're not. They will fix your car once, and fix what needs fixing. You've already spent £130 (iirc) on an oil and filter change, which IMO is preposterous, the guess work by your garage of 15 years will get you nowhere but out of pocket, with a car that still has problems.
