Have an Alfa 156 SW 2.4 JTD. It intermittently gives me “motor control failure” messages which is what brought me to this wonderful site. Lots of things to try to solve the problem but the good news for me is that it doesn't appear to be a major problem.
Looking through the forums the aluminium engine guard caught my attention as in Scotland the local authorities don't think we have enough mountains and frequently build new ones in the middle of the road.
Looking forward to exploring the rest of the site...
