I have an Alfa Romeo 156 2.5 V6 and for the last few months the injector light has been showing on the dashboard intermitently, when this happens between 1st and 4th gear the car looses power, then cuts in a couple of seconds later.

Spoke to an Alfa garage and they said could be air mass sensor, so bought new air sensor and air filter and fitted yesterday. However, had a nightmare removing the screws from the air filter lid and have only managed to insert 2 screws to hold it down, thought it was okay but the injector light has appeared again today!!!!

If the filter lid is not screwed down properly will this effect the air flow etc????

Can anyone help please!!!! thanks

2 screws in the airbox are fine as long as it is relatively sealed well... this has nothing to do with the injector light.

Typical Alfa to have a stab in the dark and get you to buy before they sort the problem:mad:

you need to get your car diagnosed properly at qualified alfa workshop.. or hopefully David C will be along to help you shortly.

But i do know that when that injector light comes on you need to get it looked at.

much more likely to be a coil pack or spark plug problem by the sound of things, the air box missing a screw certainly wont cause you any problems, you will be far better off going to a good independant alfa specialist than an alfa dealer :thumbs:
