This is A PHASE 2 car with the ECU on top of the throttle body
and is probably a one off fault and does not make sense.
The car started and drove fine, then just cut and wouldn’t start so I borrowed my mates Skoda to go home.
The next morning the car started and drove about 100 yard and stopped no amount of cranking would she start.
Called my AA man who came along a looked and said its an ALFA tow it.
So back at the workshop:
The immobiliser light was going out OK.
No faults on the PC’s
Tested fuel rail for fuel. OK
Volts at injectors yes but not pulsing the led tester, so she was not injecting!
After resistance testing and cranking over and scoping the crank sensor, there was a PULSE so the crank sensors was ok.
Tested spark. OK
Still no go! DUE TO NO FUEL BEN INJECTED
Well the injectors are controlled by what camshaft sensor, ECU what ever?
I reached over to unplug the ECU as my mate turn the key and the car started!
The fault turned out to be the 3 nuts that holds the ECU to the throttle body where lose and there was some corrosion on the both surface’s
Cleaned it off and tighten up the nuts and the car has been fine for the last 3 mths.
Like I said it does not makes sense.
It may be worth a look.
