Loss of power
Yesterday I was driving a 200 mile round trip in my 1.9jts 159. I was about 30 miles in when I went to overtake another car' I gave the car the usuall 3rd gear but just as I was pulling back in to my own lane I could feel the car holding back on me. Went through the gears and all was fine until I tried to accelerate.
Every time I press more than 10-20% on the accelerator it starts to miss and splutter, the car idles fine and cruses fine but just won't accelerate anywhere quickly, it also flashes the check engine every time I try to push it.
Has anyone came across anything similar in there own car?
My own possibility in my head are either jumped a tooth on timing, fuel pump, coil pack, collapsed catalytic converter, or maybe MAF.
I hope to get it diagnose check tomorrow evening by a local mechanic but he's not familiar with alfa but at the same time he has done plenty of big jobs on previous alfas I've owned.
Any help would be great.
