Help Hi - New to the board and looking for help

Hi,

Thought I would introduce myself to everyone. I only recently discovered this board as I have been having a few issues with my car.

I have been a happy owner of an Alfa 146 (1996 1.6ts) for the last 2 1/2 years - great fun to drive and nice to have more unusual car.

Until recently that is ... when it developed a persistant problem that cannot be identified. It started initially with the odd bit of hesitation when accelerating. Now the engine/injector warning light keeps coming on when revving the engine and it hesitates pretty frequently.

Been to alfa specialist 4 times and the ECU showed a battery error but he could not find an error with Battery. Had air flow meter replaced and it improved but then soon went back to how it was before. Have since cleaned the battery terminal and reset ecu which seemed to cure it but then it soon started again.

Local alfa specialist now thinks it could be the ECU that has a fault .... any help would be really appreciated.

Thanks a lot.


Andrew

Hi Andy, welcome to the forum.


I'm afraid I can't help you with your tech question, but you might have more luck if you also post the question in the 146 tech lounge (where all the etchies hang out ).

Anyway, good luck with it.

Welcome.

As a suggestion, try cleaning all the earth connections particularly in the engine bay, main earth cables to the engine/gearbox.
