Hallo Alfa Owners

My name is Itai. I'm posting from Harare, Zimbabwe. I own an Alfa Romeo 146 1.6 Twin Spark of year 2000.

Very sorry to say that I haven't really enjoyed driving this car since importing it about a year ago:

The current major problems are:

1. The injector warning light on the dash is continously on. Posts on the form have attributed this to a MAF sensor that needs cleaning. Could someone pint me in the right direction as to where this component is and how to access it? Also where do I find the Stepper motor - another suspect
2. The idle is very rough and fuel consumption very bad at 5km/ltr of petrol
3. Cylinder 1 and 4 are not firing. Have replaced plugs to no avail. Could this be faulty injectors?

Please help me bring my Alfa back to shape.
