Hi there
I'm a relatively new alfa romeo owner and for the past few weeks have been an extremely happy one. I have a 1999 alfa romeo 156 2.5 v6 which i use as a second car. this week i have started to have a few problems though. hope some one can help?
A light has come on on the dashboard on the speedo dial above the oil and battery lights. The car then drops to about 1000 rpm and will not rise any higher. eventually the car cuts out and will not start for about 15 minutes. I had the air flow unit replaced and there has been some injector cleaner through the system. Anyone any ideas??

Re: Hello

thanks for everyones reply. I've had some good news today. the fault has been traced back to a faulty knock sensor which has been cutting fuel supply to the engine intermittently. Quick fix and back up and roaring along again.
