Is my ecu dying? This is a wierd one!
Ok guys, I could sure use some help with this - my beloved 156 2.4 jtd Sportwagon has got a bizarre fault - the cam sensor is reading a fault, and I have the proverbial engine management light on. This is combined with a pronounced ticking noise from the injectors, the noiseiest being nearest the gearbox. Not that wierd, you are probably thinking, except that these two injectors have been replaced, along with cam belts, tensioners, the tappets have been checked and shimmed (required very small shims) and, yep, the cam sensor has been replaced. The Alfa dealer who did the work believes the fault lies with the ecu. I have a replacement arriving tomorrow for the ecu. I have been running a tuning box, decatted exhaust and auto delta air filter, and an allard motorsport egr valve delete kit, but if the other ecu doesn't solve this I will definitely be at my wits end. Which is a short trip, I'll be honest...! Has anyone any suggestions about where the fault lies? I have that desperate feeling coming on....
