Help GTV V6 engine management light on, again!

Hi,

Got an alfa with a problem (GTV V6 (Y reg)). The engine management light comes on after a few days out of the alfa garage. Had new MAF and lambda sensors fitted, sorted air leak from cylinder, had errors cleared, but still wants to light up the dash. Any ideas?

Wouldn't mind a "cheaper" garage to take it to in or around Nottingham/Derby, any suggestions?

Cheers!

Does the car run ok? any other clues? But id suggest that you take it an Indie and get it put on the diags, theres a list of recommended garages on the forum take a look there?

Hope you get it sorted

Car runs fine, just have no idea what it could be. Anyway, I've booked it in for friday to be hooked up to the diags. I'll let you know the out-come.

Hi Mantress
I had a similar problem a few weeks ago. The engine management light came on so I took it to my local v good indie garage. They hooked it up to the diagnostic thingy and after that the light went off ! They were as puzzled as me. Just give it a good run, they said, could be running a bit rich and so I did. Problem appears to have gone. Hope you get it sorted. Chris

Hi

The GTV was in the garage on friday. The diags showed up as an air leak. This is possibly from the rubber seals on the cylinders. Had one changed about a month ago when I noticed it was leaking air. The mechanic said most of the rubber under the bonet doesn’t last long due to heating, cooling and oil. I’m going to book it in for the other five to be changed. At least the light's now off.

Thanks

Mine came on after washing it saturday morning,also the cooling fan came on when i used the wipers (engine cold).I can only assume the car was a bit hacked off with me for showering it in cold water , still it's all ok now.
