hello to you all,
I'm new to this site and new to alfa ownership, so just to give an heads up here's my story.
Spent the weekend I had off work putting myself through hell working on my 156 t spark.
This started more or less straight forward by installing the variator service kit of spring and washer.......well after starting it ran for a good five minutes then faded and juddered and died refusing to restart...checked the timing which was right, then the nightmare of electronics as best I could, still no life.
Anyhow at the end of my somewhat short tether I arranged for a diagnostics guy to call round, guess what ........the ecu has failed.
.....sourced replacement ecu , code ecu and chip for key for only £29 though, so just waiting for these to arrive and should then be back on the road soon...
can anyone say whether this is cmmon on this model?????
