Hello all newbie here

Hi all new to this forum ,,

Pick up my first Alfa tomorrow and have to admit very worried after reading a few of the problems..

I am meant to be swapping a Renualt Scenic for my one which i thought was a great deal

Mines is a 2001 TS 156

It has the engine managment light on so I have decided to wait until the garage puts the machine on it to check what the problem is so fingers crossed, It drives great and has no problems accelerating or overheating ect The guy says the light just appeared.
But has a slight chug when ticking over,,

Anyone care to hazard a guess what it will be

If im back on tomorrow night I will be another proud owner

Welcome to AO.
The engine management light could mean a lot of things, most commonly Maf or Lamda.

Maybe a forum member near you with Alfadiag could hook you up - Come on chaps, step up.

Good Luck and again welcome
