Hi to all,
I am a new GTV owner, have some tech issues if you could help out I would be really grateful.
I am a Corporate Jet salesman, single and live in Essex !!
I have a problem with the car 'missing' or some call it 'pinking' , it does not
miss when idling in neutral or does it seem to miss when going above 50 mph,
it does it between about 10mph - 40mph. I took it to the local Alfa dealer
and they said they plugged it in and the only error that came up was
a Phase Sensor error, but it seems to replace this means replacing a lot
more at the same time. Does anyone know exactly what it is involved in
this as the dealer didn't really say. The water pump also seems a little
noisy and there is a terrible smell of oil in the cabin, there are no leaks
but the engine does have an oil mist over it and the dealer suggested
an engine clean but did say that the manifold was blowing and needed
a new gasket, that could be accounting for the oil fumes, does this sound right?
Any help or advice would be much appreciated
