hi every one i'm new to this site having just bought a 2001 166 2 litre twin spark not 5 days ago.
now the problems the damn thing won't start well it does now and again
i've tried cleaning relays (fuel and ignition) which has made no difference some times it will start some times it won't .
i fitted a new crank postion sensor earlier as i have had problems with these before hasn't made any difference.
so i'm a bit stuck now.
please any suggestion would be welcome this is my first alfa and the driving is such fun but i don't want to be second guessing it every time i go out.
PLEASE HELP

yep the battery has a good charge and spins it over quickly
when it statrs it starts first turn no cranking just as it should do that turn it off and try and start it again it just cranks over like no fuel or no spark

Crank sensor m8..... Dont take for granted that the new one is fine just because it's new. I went through six of them from various places/manufacturer's in a period of 2 month on a Citroen C5 before finding a PSA original part worked! Apperently an OEM Alfa CPS is the best of the bunch ;)
