Hi Folks,

Have recently got myself a 156, only had to wait 5 years, but well, I thought the wife was going to learn to drive so had a little nissan while that was supposed to happen - it didn't,:inlove: so finally got my lovely alfa, of course, it's having problems so I'm especially interested in diagnostics software and the like, when it broke down the other night I just looked at it there with it's hazard lights on and thought: if you weren't so pretty I'd be getting really annoyed just now, but I didn't.
If anyone has had experience of diagnostic software it would be really good to hear from you.

cheers

Mike

Hello and welcome.
Search the threads, there have been several regarding diagnostics.
Better, make a post giving all the symptoms and circumstances.
And good luck!

Thanks to all who replied, seems like a great community here !


At the moment my head hurts with all the info I'm trying to take in, but I'm on a steep learning curve with my new alfa.

The faults I've seen so far are:

generic and cylinder 2 ignition problem:
the garage replaced the spark plugs - not fixed but the fault may have changed a little, a Bosch web site says that there is a common fault - the coil developes a problem and messes up the Ecu, we'll see - they may just be trying to make some money fixing an Ecu, it has since been over taken by a more major drama-

I think this is the same as a previously posted fault where I lost hydraulics - woahhhhhh, steering heavy and breaks struggling - not good, when I slowed down I could hear the engine making a lot of noise - maybe hydraulic tappets or a completely goosed hydraulic pump.

It's in the local stealers garage this morning getting looked at, will let you all know how it goes

There's still a bit of warranty left, but yes, I know, they'll do everything they can to not pay out

cheers for now
