Hi! May I ask if theres something unusual on the engine at the moment? Sometimes when it appears, its just asking for an oil change then it will vanish. It serves as some kind of maintenance reminder. Hope this helps and take care!

Red Engine light on warning lights on


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.

Alfa Romeo 147 t-spark motor control system failure car just died in the middle of the road and won't start again.


Hello
The engine and transmission in this cars drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant teperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL THE DIAGNOSIS & TESTING IS COMPLETED.

Everytime you put petrol in the car the engine management light comes on saying motor control system failure and stay on until cleared why and can it be repaired


I would first renew the petrol tank cap, or the gasket on it, if you can obtain one. Then see if the fault is cured. It is very common for a worn cap to cause the engine check light to glow, on any make.
To reset the ECU this procedure is said to work, although I think it is very weird. It would not seem to be damaging though

VDC system failure on 156 selespeed


I have the same problem with my 156 2.4 JTD 2002...two most common reasons are:
-steering angle sensor ( "U shaped, black thing" on your steering column/wheel_217.jpg has a lose connection or needs to be changed )
-old battery ( sounds stupid but new battery solved the problem in many cases)...it could also be an alternator problem
I've checked my car with FiatECUScan and it says...see pictures below..._216.jpg
Good luck!

Alfa 156 motor system control failure message


I Think it's just conincidance. Sainsburys fuel is checked independantly by Trading Standards and a private company. Both turn up unanounced. Plus there is a warning in the stations if water etc. is found. This shuts of the fuel from that tank.
