Uneven Running 166 Sport-tronic
Hi there from Australia
I am trying to track down a problem with my 166 3.0 Sport-tronic , it has what seems to be un-even running at about 60kph or approx 1500-1800rpm in 4th gear. It feels like the engine is mis-firing but I am not convinced of it. I have had the MAF replaced in the past at it did seem to improve it but still didn't fix it , plugs have been done and when hooked up to the Alfa diagnositics it doesn't show any sensor problem I have been told by Alfa dealer they have had some cases of a locking bolt which locates a plate that one of the driveshafts goes through which they have had a couple where the bolt has come loose. Anybody got any thoughts. It actually feels like a out of balance wheel but have had several different sets of rims on it along with all rims being confirmed as being perfectly balanced by several tyre shops.
