Hmmm help please

Hi Guys
Dont come on very often being a travelling man, sad tale of woe for my beautiful Alfa, after using copious amounts of oil since buying it, it finally ended in engine meltdown, it went straight to W.A.D. wolverhampton (cant speak highly enough of them) since going there I have used virtualy no oil in 1000 miles. I had a 155 service car off them, and by god did it go, as soon as you touched the throttle the engine is reving immediately and ready to go. I t has an edge to it "my problem is my 156 doesnt have that edge" although at 3000 rpm it starts to motor. So I am thinking its MAF problem, have seen them on ebay for 40, question is are they worth buying or will I be throwing money away. After all the problems getting the suspension, brakes, engine done I STILL LOVE IT.

if at first you d'ont suceed, skydiving is not for you

Re: help please

I wouldn't bother with any of the £40 ones off ebay, haven't heard any good reports from any of the alfa forums.Try these
