My K reg 155 1.8 recently developed a fault which my local Alfa garage can't explain. between 1500 and 2000 revs on a hill it completely loses power. The clutch is fine, biting nicely, spark plugs are recently cleaned, brand new ignition leads. My garage think it's all over and advise me to scrap it, they say the only thing to look at now is the throttle and that is going to cost me £100's. I'll be honest...I'm female, never owned an Alfa before and know nothing about engines but I'm trying to learn and I love my 155.... I'm worried I'm falling foul of the old 'girl in a garage' routine....can any of you help and tell me what I should be asking????
