Re: Did your Alfa breakdown today

No, but it broke down on Monday. In fact it was running on 5 cylinders for most of today. Does that count? Can I cast 1/6th of a vote?

Re: Did your Alfa breakdown today

Is it outside your house or 'abandoned' somewhere?

Re: Did your Alfa breakdown today

I haven't got an Alfa at the moment.

I have never actually had one break down on me, but I have had one that failed to start after a shopping trip. It did go in the end though and was because of a failed bosch crank sensor. (Bloody german rubbish)

Re: Did your Alfa breakdown today

Mine's been safely ensconced in the garage all week. Tomorrow it'll get a quick clean and polish before carrying me, my wife and our beautiful daughter to her christening.

And it bloody well better not break down on that particular job....

Are they Bosch or something? I never knew they were German bits.

Is it a conspiracy do you think to sell rubbish to the Italians and keep the better stuff for themselves?

Yeah, crank sensor is made by Bosch. But to be fair they fail equally as often on other manufacturers.

Re: Did your Alfa breakdown today

Most of the electrics - on the 156 at least - are Bosch (or Delphi....)
