OK...so today I was stuck in traffic and noticed the revs a little low on tickover. As I pulled away the engine felt very lumpy
It was immediately obvious that all 4 cylinders weren't powering the car. Previously (only 10 minutes earlier) it was pulling perfectly fine on the dual carriageway with no loss of power at all.
Something very similar happened to a me couple of months back... I almost got totalled at a roundabout - pulled out, car went very lumpy and almost stalled. It felt like it was running on 3 cylinders and it was misfiring.
I took it to an indi Alfa garage and the fault was traced to a dodgy Lambda.
