Possible worn spark plugs causing unduly high Voltage which cuts ECU to protect it from arcing feedback. This problem generally produced during acceleration. Car usually re-starts almost immediately. Replace plugs - clean leads should be a fix if these are the symtoms

Have you checked the fuel filter? Spark plugs gapped incorrectly, plug wires crossed or defective? Weak ignition? Vacuum leaks at the throttle body and check the vacuum lines as well. Hope that Helps.

I have 1986 Alfa Spider that won't start. Car has been sitting for a year. I replaced battery, fuel tank, fuel sender unit, both fuel pumps. I seems that the in tank pumps is not getting any po


Could be the main or fuel run relay located in the compartment under the luggage rack, passenger side, main relay also, fuse for the fuel relay 8amp. Electronic Control Unit is also located there.

Could be electrical, Hook up a timing light, three leads: Power, Ground, and one that goes around the wire to #1 cyl. Turn the engine over and see if there's firing. Note: u can check all 4 spark plugs this way.

Fuse lead goes to pin 30 of the fuel relay, u can jump 30 across to 57 and check for the pumps running, if not, change-I suggest both relays, main and fuel run relays. Both pumps get their 12v DC from the fuel run relay, both should be running when you switch ignition switch to on, then a tachymetric signal is fed from the coil to the relay to keep it running.

With it just stalled you need to isolate the problem to fuel spark or compression to know that to do next. no spark inghtion modules fail. no fuel fuel filters and fuel pumps fail. Compression cooling system problems ( no fan) raditor coolant low) therostate stuck clossed. find something and reply and I'll be glad to respond to your post.

Alfa 147 80000 miles on an 02 plate when warm the idling noise is louder for about 30 secs then dissapears doesn't happen when cold!


If in all other respects the engine seems to be fine, then it's most likely piston slap. It's a sign of a worn engine and the only cure is a rebuild, but in itself, piston slap is just an annoyance rather than a problem. The piston bores are tighter when the engine is cold and so the pistons are more tightly constrained and less able to slap.

But at 80k miles you really shouldn't have piston slap yet, even on an Alfa. I suggest that you take the car to an experienced mechanic to get the oil pressure checked: it could be that the oil pump is failing and if that goes completely you will be looking at a replacement engine due to consequential damage. Used Alfa 147's of that age are usually dirt cheap though, so if you do need a donor engine it may prove to be more cost effective to sell yours for spares and buy another 147.

Engine cuts out and wont restart for maybe 20/30 minutes


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).
