Hi Rob, i have the OBD cable and dongle to set up which i can give you a loan of if you want. All you will need is a laptop with the free version of FiatECU scan (my own laptop has caved in).

check for oil around the spark plugs of Cylinder 1 or perhaps the HT pack is faulty. the mis-fire will effect the Lambda.

Well.. She is booked in for Wednesday morning with Gerry to sort this out. Gav, I was told the same thing about the HT leads, they have second hand ones in the shop as the new ones are 200+ quid. So fingers crossed it won't be a major fix.

I just checked my reciept there, €144 for 8 spark plugs and he charged me €10 for the secondhand HT leads so just add labour to that. Assuming its the same problem and price for the parts for the 156.
Fingers crossed it wont be to bad Rob

I usually wash it by hand with the help of a pressure washer, but haven't washed it for about 2 months now.. As for the parking, it's not close to the sea.. But on a public road under a tree.

Confusing thing is.. I've started her tonight and all seems ok, only a little sluggish on power.. Hope Gerry can shed some light on it tomorrow.
