Hi, i recently bought my first ever alfa, a 2002 156 jts 2litre, for a song as it had some body damage and the dreaded " motor control failure" warning. I am having the cam belt etc done on weds by Auto Italiana in exeter as the mileage is 61000 and sidwells failed to change it at the last 44000 mile service. Anyway, i noticed the oil was rather dirty so decided to change the oil and give it a flush out. Once done i drove the car to get some petrol, when i started up the warning message had gone and , as yet, hasnt come back. So have i cured the fault by changing the oil? has anyone else done the same thing? also, what should the rumming temp be as it seems to flutter between 50 and 90 depending what driving im doing, maybe a new thermostat? be nice to hear from you lot, many thnaks lee
