Help! Alfa 159 woes!
OK so my Alfa hasn't been the most reliable, surprise, surprise, but until now nothing worrying...
I just got back from about 1500km of driving it in the last week, through snow, ice, blizzards etc. no issues at all, drove it to work the next day, no problem.
Went to drive it home in the evening, about half a mile down the road the engine starts sounding like it's struggling, engine warning light comes on and if i accelerate it goes really lumpy/juddery, but if i back off it doesn't seem so bad.
it's been -10deg here for a bout a week so i wondered if something has frozen...
seems like plenty of oil, coolant is an the MIN mark but temp sensors both normal - haven't done a fault code check because my old diagnostics unit seems to make the ECU go a bit weird so i take it to a garage if theres issues, only problem is that he's shut until 8th of Jan so I'm a bit stuffed! Any ideas?
