About 5 weeks ago, i had what can only be described as the motoring week from hell!
Firstly my wishbones/droplinks/bushes were replaced (again) on the wed, so £300...but wear and tear, fair enough i suppose (well wear & tear on a Alfa anyway), but then on the Saturday i filled my JTDm with a full tank of unleaded..doh!
...and actually drove it a couple of miles before it conked out too! So another £300 for the privilege of getting it drained etc (thanks AA...not). And then.................on the wed after that my clutch went on the M69! £725 :/ So approx £1300 in the space of 7 days!!
I was going to post about it before but was trying my hardest to erase that week from memory!
Anyway getting back on topic, after my misfuelling, i have to admit it ran pretty sweet...almost as as if nothing had happened, which surprised me a little?
But in the last 10 days the idle on startup is lumpy and quite rough, almost misfiring-ish. It gets better though after driving for even just a minute...although even when fully warm it still doesnt feel 100% as smooth as it did, i would say it feels 80/85% as smooth as it did.
I though it might be the recent cold temps, but today was a fair bit milder and it was still lumpy. Actually today it was lumpy/rough enough for me to stall the car whilst doing a three point turn. But that might also be my rubbish driving.
Anyway didn't change the fuel filter :/ maybe i should have!? Have i damaged the injectors?? :/
Also is it worth filling up with Shell optimax (or whatever its call now)? Or that millers product that gets mentioned?
