Acapulco cheers for the invite, id have come along but I gotta gig on saturday with my band in oswaldtwistle!maybe next time!
Cheers 4 the flyer, how do i get some to return the favour?!

Heres my alfa story....
1. Purchased a beauty of a 145 cloverleaf "2.0" in zoe yellow, mint codition..
2. Only had one hang up, the old 'rev's itself routine'
3. No big deal, gotta diagnostic for £40 and it showed up the throttle body faulty (worn intake)
4. Got a Working throttle body from a breaker (Richard, in padiham) who kindly fit it for me...
5. DISASTER still the same, stalling when slowing down from high revs, reving up to 2,500 revs when in idle...
6. NIGHTMARE got told my engine wasnt actually the 2.0l which was written on the log book, it is apparently a smaller engine? its a Twin spark plastic top, but dunno which one...
7. Would this explain the Throttle body replacement not working for me? What should I do next?

Any help appreciated guys as im losing my love with this car rapido!!
cheers, AL:D
