Honestly, I've not seen an alfa romeo here in the philippines but i think you problem is partly electrical and the electronic side of the car. something on your car is heating up so much that it cuts the power to the ignition once it has. it is a possibility that a damaged ignition coil or a faulty computer box(if your car has one) or the control system that regulates the spark distribution system or the injectors(if your car is fuel injected type).

Sir,

Commen problem on the 19jtd version, there is a cranckshaft position sensor close to the left drive shaft (i think) that is heating up while you drive. At a certain temperature it does not send the required data to the CDI, so the CDI does not know when to ignite and he quits.

Once cooled down everything works again for a little while, replace the sensor and you'll be fine.

Regards

Phill

I have a 93 dodge stealth that will start right up but after a couple minutes it just shuts off. And it wont restart for 20-30 min, it will restart only to shut off again after a couple of min.


I'm not positive, but I think your electronic ignition has something called a pick up coil that goes bad. Sometimes the engine may just die while driving, or just not want to run when it starts. You also may have a distributor cap that Mitsubishi made that has circuitry inside the cap, so replace the cap too.

no. I'd suggest to disconnect a battery for 15 mins, reconnect, wait for 5 mins and try to restart. If it doesn't help (sometimes there's a program block to prevent stealing equipment) call a dealer

Does check engine light or wrench light come on? If yes, get free computer scan from Autozone or other parts store that offers free scan. Sounds like a sensor is failing
