A tin of 'stuff' made my car better!
You may recall I reported just recently that the car was suffering from noisy injectors and general rough running. Since then it has been in for service, and since that service it has run better than it has ever run in the 24K miles of my ownership!!
Knowing that a diesel service is only going to be (engine wise) fuel and oil filters plus oil, not enough to change the characteristics of the engine, I called Monza Sport, the guys who had done the service, to see if there had been any ECU upgrade or such. No, was the answer, but after a search on the service history for my car, Keith told me that a fuel system flush had been done, some magic stuff in a tin had been put through the fuel system and injectors to clean out the gunge. Whatever that stuff is, it certainly has done the trick, its a different car altogether!
Someone said to me, "so whats so special about an Alfa Romeo then?" I told him, "If you have to ask, you wont understand".
