2 weeks ago dealer did a cambelt change and plugs and service $1800
Well on the weekend my 2005 147 with 70k on the clock just stopped while driving at 80k.
The error on the dash was Selespeed error.
towed it home and played around with it all day sunday.
First I checked the fuel hose under the plastic cover..when I pulled it off it had some fuel come out.
Cranked the engine over and no petrol coming out of hose.
Thinking that there was some petrol around the inlet it would be enough to crank for a second.
Pulled spark plug out and couldnt see any spark when we cranked it.
Thought that some sensor had gone and wouldnt let it fire.
This Morning Put it on a Flat bed and took it to the dealer ( I am a stupid but loyal customer)
Told them what I did and the first thing they did was put fuel in the tank and off she went.
The guage is fault...and apparently its very common on the 147. If it is why not tell people that a 6 year old car with 70k on the clock is going to have trouble with the sender.
1981 Toyota corolla never missed a beat.
anyway I bought another sender and going to put it in now myself!
but getting back to it just drove the giulietta while I was waiting and time to sell my 147.
gotta find out more about their issues.
they tell me that it turns off at the lights to save petrol.....thats what the rest of them did wasnt it
anyway I hope I can help someone else out with the same problem
