Not quite sure what it's going on with my car. Recently it has seems to loose all of the power ie: start the car, go onto the first gear, accelerate (of course... )and want to go but the car does not give the power and I can push the accelerating pedal to the max it doesnt make any diference.....As you may understand I dont know the world of mechanical words, I need some Help :cry::(

This sounds like a throttle potentiometer issue, am just getting to grips with the 147, so can't offer any more than that, sorry

I'd take to a independent Alfa specialist for a diagnostic reading :thumbs:

The mechanic has changed the clutch switch and it seems to be better, but I still have to put to action to see if it works......
