Lumpy at Low Rev / Diagnostic
Good day to you all,
I have a 98R GTV V6.
Recently (last few months), it has started to get quite Lumpy at the bottom of the Rev Range. Ok once above ~2000rpm. Almost Kangaroo's/stalls without applying some throttle. The car used to pull away in 2nd gear no probs (torque). Performance also feels down, not got the same surge. Almost like I'm missing a Cylinder? Also sounds a bit mis-fire'y' when idleing.
So, my local garage tried to talk to the car, but their diagnostic equipment doesn't speak Italian. But they did check emmisions and they are quite high.
1. Does anyone know any good Alfa Diagnostic centres around Bristol/Somerset?
2. Anyone know what problem might be? Plugs??? (due plug change in about 5-6k miles). Where to start (without chucking tonnes of cash at finding out).
All help greatly appreciated, thank you.
And God said, "let there be Torque"...And he saw that it was GOOOD!!
