New Member - 156 owner
Hi, just wanted to say hello as a new member to this forum. I have owned my 156 1.8TS since new in 1998. Lovely to drive, but not without it's problems - squeaky front bushes pretty much from the start and a new engine at 40000 miles. Recent troubles have included rust (significant welding needed around front suspension mount) and now, it has a dramatic loss of power above 3800RPM.
Since I had a new timing belt it's been totally gutless. The garage who fitted it say that the timing is spot-on and that maybe it needs new plugs. It seems to accelerate fine to 3800, but above that it's absolutely dead. Am I right in thinking that power would be down across the rev range if plugs were the problem?
