Re: Engine management light - loss of power
well, i took it into Alfa at Wilsons and they had a look at it.
Turns out that there was a build up of particles in the exhaust system, which required clearing out. Cost £51 to fix, and so was NOT covered on the warranty.
The mechanic said it was a common fault with the phase 1 159's, where they have had to download new software. The thing is he said I didn't need the new software ?
Anyhow his advice is to drive the car for 20 mins a week at 45 mph, which I find absolutely stupid ( not saying his wrong ), in order to combat any future issues.
The other thing I find is that Alfa obviously found this as a problem and reflected this into changes on the phase 2 159 ( 08 onwards i think ). You would think they would of ordered a recall to change the exhaust system etc.
Anyhow the cars back to normal, and hope that this is some use to someone out there with a similar problem.
If you excuse me, I have to take the Alfa for a spin...............
