Re: Alfa 147 Motor Failure
Welcome to AO.
If you aren't happy that your garage has given you a good answer either challenge them about it or try someone else.
Are you using an Alfa approved garage, an independant or just your local garage? Do they actually have the right kit to read these fault codes?
There are plenty of threads in the forum recommending good Independant (Indie) garages and a personal recommendation from another Alfa owner with experience of the garage is always a good thing.
Ultimately, alarm and fault codes are there for a reason and will only cause you undue stress when you are driving along not knowing if something is seriously wrong or not. Best to get them checked out by someone you can trust.
