    Alfa 159, Brera & 946 Spider
    2.2 JTS This doesn't happen every time I start it. Upon starting, it runs very lumpy/unevenly and it is audibly not right. It doesn't last long, say 20-40 seconds then idles as normal. It even stalled out on one occasion with a message that there was no oil or pressure, I can't remember...

  6. P0191 code but car runs pretty well

    Alfa 147, 156 & GT
    Hi. My GT 1.9 is throwing a p0191 code, issue with the fuel rail pressure. Not sure what is going on though as the car will run fine if I clear the code until I accelerate hard for a period of time. The code will then come back. When the code is on, acceleration in the first few gears is fine...
