motor controll system failure

So I'm currently waiting for a tow truck, when I start the car it says motor control system failure and as I accelerate it feels really clunky, especially when changing gears, any help/advice? Thanks. Also my mechanic is useles and said he won't even touch it so most likely need to go to an Alfa Romeo dealership

If it makes a difference I filled up with fuel about 5 minutes prior to this happening. So is it worth while to put in some injector cleaners to see if it helps?

I would suggest an Alfa specialist. Probably needs diag as the MCS warning could be numerous things.

You did put the right fuel in didn't you?

And where are you in the country? tbh i wouldn't go to a dealer give these guys a ring before the tow truck arrives.
