Hi all ups and downs in today's commute!
On my way home this evening pittering along behind a lorry, see an opportunity to overtake so drop it into 3rd, half way along and feel a jerk. Look down at the dashboard, engine light, car stalls. pulled over, Starts but dies straight after. Called the RAC, then the Missus saying I'd be late (priorities I know) then browsed onto this very forum.
A quick search later brought up http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/alfa-...instantly.html
Essentially telling me the MAF has had its last breath.
So I pop open the bonnet, unplug the MAF and fire it up first time! Drive home under my own steam.
2nd MAF in 6 months of ownership, 3rd in the past 2 years on this car, will definitely be buying another used Vauxhall one! (search for 0281002180 on a certain auction website)
This post is mainly to say thanks all members of this forum for at least the second time now the resources and knowledge you have provided has saved my skin or at least a lot of cash.
So after lurking and leaching for over a year now I think its time to buy myself membership and become a proper member!!
