Hi folks, broke down this morning in my 156, it's been a bit twitchy for a few weeks now when you apply light throttle movements, slightly jerky and feels like it's missing a bit, always clears when you floor it though. However this morning it died completely, lost all power and ground to a halt, idles ok ish but wouldn't rev, just spluttered accompanied by grey/black smoke. I found myself limping home at 5 mph... I have recently (two weeks ago) thoroughly cleaned the EGR and the MAP as well as put new injector seals in which made a great difference, car was much smoother and quicker. Any one got any clues as to what has happened?

I would say you've probably got an air leak somewhere, most likely after the MAF. Give your air intake plumbing a going over and see what you come up with.
