Question about 1986 Alfa Romeo Spider
The car runs well except when idling at lights or in traffic and occasionally on cruise at say 110Km/hr. During the rough idling the engine misses and coughs perhaps missing on several cylinders and nearly dies. It seems to be worse on short journeys in summer and when it gets hot in traffic. The computer shows no fault and the idle speed has been lifted to no affect. It does seem to be getting progressively worse. Can you help.
Hi, the valve springs are bad in this vehicle. this is causing the misfire. this is quite hard for the CPU to pick up. normally, the cam sensor will at times.
