I have just bought an ALFA Romeo 156 1999 that's revving too high

I have just bought an ALFA Romeo 156 1999 registration, the rev counter is fluctuating between 2 and 3 in a stationary position and revving too high when been driven below 30 miles per hour, can't get a garage to look at it until next wednesday but need car to go to London....have been told it may just be the throttle sensor needs cleaning or this a diy job or does it need to go to a garage?

Hi, our Alfa Romeo 166 has problem with automatic transmission. At first it started shifting only the 3rd gear, then the emergency mode came and then it stopped working at all. There was also very strange...

Repairing the automatic transmission of the Alfa Romeo requires a lot of skill and assisting tools/equipments. Since this is a highly critical mechanism it is important that the problem be checked with assisitance.
however since you have already changed on earlier you can try to open the old one to see the sections.
now check on the linkages, the notches to which each lever is selected to latch and the gears/ counter wheel gears.
The faults described seems that the governor and the gears settings must be redone. You need a perfect overhauling of the gear box as there is a possibility that gears are worn out -- the noise of a mower. may be you can swap some spares from the old one but still having changed this for a similar fault the problems might need new spares.

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...)
