Strange goings on with my Alfa on the weekend. I turned the key to start the engine on Sun, heard a loud bang and a smell of burning plastic. Turned off the engine straight away, checked under the bonnet - nothing wrong. Started the car again and it wasn't sounding too healthy, not firing on all cylinders. Called the AA out, but by then the car was working fine - looked like a right muppet! It's been fine ever since and I've driven a few hundred miles now.
Anyone had any experience of this - just a bit of back firing - I've got an Alfa performance exhaust, but that's the only mod?
This happened again, it's definitely not from the exhaust, could it be happening from the Air-Con? It seems to be after I've driven the car with the air-con on then park up and go back to the car after about an hour, start the engine - bang!
Any ideas anyone - I will take it to the garage, but don't know really what to say is wrong. The car drives fine, but I need to get it sorted before the warrant runs out in a months time?
