HI,HANNAH,I SUSPECT YOU HAVE AN IMMOBILIZER PROBLEM.IF THERE IS A ORANGE LIGHT FLASHING ON THE CLUSTER WITH AKEY IN IT THEN IT IS THE IMMOBILIZER.THE PROBLEM WOULD MORE LIKELY BE THE DATA FROM THE KEY IS NOT GETTING TO THE IMMOBILIZER CONTROL UNIT,USUALLY A BAD CONNECTION AT THE READER COIL ON THE IGNITION.YOU MUST CLOSE THE TERMINALS SLIGHTLY AND INSULATE THE WIRING SEPERATELY.ANDY

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).

I know you say that you have checked pressures but incase you didn't know, there are 3 pumps on the car.
In tank = 1 bar upto an inline pump by the battery which increases to 3 bar then to the one on the engine that tops 2000 bar
The one by the battery + the intank one are VERY common to fail.
Other thing to check is that the pressure sensor on the rail is reading correctly.
Does it have any stored data? If no codes the it would be best to get it on some decent equipment that reads live data like Bosch KTS etc
Are you in the UK?

Mine did that same thing. I ended up having to buy a carb cleaning kit, and take the carburator apart and clean it out and rebuild it. It was really dirty inside it and since I did that I have had no problems!
