Sticky accelerator pedal...
Wondering If any of you might be able to help me out (Im amazed at the level of knowledge everyone has!). Im new to the world of Alfa's (joined on here the other week) and I've been bought an Alfa GTV as an early christmas present..Having never driven one of these cars before and knowing nothing about them I have a few questions as Im not sure what's 'normal' for my car.
The main problem at the moment is that the accelerator pedal sticks making it real hard to get used to driving the thing! Im either stalling or revving it hard. Not good, I know. Phoned my local Alfa dealership and the throttle cable for my car (1996) Alfa doesnt make it any more! Any ideas?
I've noticed that the car takes ages to get up to any heat. Even on long journeys It sits just below 90 on the temp gauge. Is that normal?
Also, It appears to tick over quite low. Approx 500. Is that ok?
Apart from that, I think all is ok with it. It had the timming belt done at the beginning of the year. Have the receipt for that! It sounds good too!
