Alfa 156 selespeed 2.0 1998 won´t start

Hello there i bought the alfa 156 selespeed 2.0 1998 about 6 monhs ago, I live in mallorca. When i first drove the car (after buying it) the revs would drop right down when i slowed down through the gears to stop at a juction this happened once a week maybe. It has stayed similar to this for the time i´ve had the car and i have taken it tp be put on the machine. It sailed through but they said there was a little fault on the sensor ( speaking in spanish made it difficult to understand. Yesterday i was going through some lights and it cut out whilst i was in 3rd gear and cruising. I presumed it was the petrol so now i have filled up with a jerry can and put it in. It is turning over fine and when it starts up it is just spluttering a bit then cutting out. I thought maybe the petrol needs to get roun the engine so have been trying again and again but to no avail. Can anyone tell me if they have had this problem and what it is. I have no money to get to a garage and have not much idea about these engines. I would say i´m pretty well f****d but maybe if i can find out the piece thats missung i have a better chance!Thankyou!
