Hi

I own a alfa 156 jts, and have the same problem, first I cleaned the maf sensor, then I changed the pedal assy. It came back. Now I have changed the Throttle body Ass\'y ( TPS) and it has fixed the problem. Also a new set of plugs will fix the lumpy problem?

Is there chain on alfa 156 2.0 liter?


If you are talking about a timing chain I think the answer could be no. I have a 2003 Spider 2L JTS which is the same engine as the 2003 156. Before that they had the 2L Twinspark and both have timing belts which need to be replace regularly along with the pulleys and idlers. Much earlier twinspark engines have a timing chain. Have a look at www.Alfa 156.net. Cheers. Brian.

My 156 sportswagon is burning fuel badly i put 2 gallons in and only got 31 miles for this i can hear an air leak coming from top of engine would this be a likley cause for such poor fuel consumption it's...


an air leak would weaken the mix of fuel to air so giving you better fuel efficiency but a poor power output.
was my last answer not to your liking, re **** fuel consumption on all fiat/alpha cars.but it is true, ask any owner........14.7 average mpg.......£205 road tax.....(tax it for a year and quadruple its value...)

Engine goes off anytime i slow down or stop


sounds like either you have a short from your resent electrical work..or your drawing to much power from the alt...if its the later, get a bigger alt or try running the radio straight from your battery....make sure you have some way to turn it on and off though;)...more likely its a wiring problem that happened when you changed the system...recheck your wires and make sure they are all in good order..especially the grounds and hots.

2001 156 Alfa T Spark heater problems


Sounds like the flaps on the heater box are not moving. you will need to check the cables to see if they have come off or if they are seized.
The heat problem could be a blockage in the heater matrix. Try flushing the matrix out with a hose from the engine compartment side.
Note: you will need to bleed the system of air after doing this.
