Re: 156 V6 won't rev AT ALL not MAF.
Well, the prices are in.....
As a reminder all I want is the Cat part of the exhaust. I have phoned around and the cheapest is Kwikfit, who will supply, fit, and warranty it for 3 years for the sum of £220.
"But how much does Alfa want for that part", I hear you all ask?
Are you all sitting down?
"£750 + VAT + fitting sir". To be honest they themselves said they wouldn't pay that and were a bit sheepish about it all. It only has a 12 month warranty too!
In the end Alfa are charging me £150, which I actually think is fair play as the poor guy spent all afternoon on it, even took the manifold off to get to the rear bank and check compression and clean the (very sooty) plugs), also do a full diag check and generally scratch thier heads in the same way I did for three weeks, (all this after I left it outside their forecourt with a flat battery at 6.00am following a tow from the RAC).
So, all in:
Car revs less and less until it won't start:
New MAF sensor £175
Alfadiag software £50
Interface Lead £35
New Crank sensor (unopened and unused) £50
Alfa fault find cost £150
New Cat fitted and warranted £220
Look in my face at Alfas £1000 Cat quote - priceless!
Car having new Cat fitted tomorrow, and then I get it back!!!! Yes!!!! (And I will be watching KwikFit like a hawk whilst they do it....)
