Hi Guru5NB, did you ever get the timing chain checked as I suggested last time? You could clean the MAF sensor - it won't do any harm as long as you're careful, but sluggish performance could be related to a host of different problems. MAF sensor (try unplugging the sensor part and see if runs more smoothly without). Lambda sensors or connections. Spark plugs. Coil packs (swap them round, see if misfire moves cylinder). Injectors. ECU or ECU connections. Wiring loom. Air/vacuum leak (check hoses, joins and look for cracks in manifolds). Faulty catalytic converter. It could be any one of these and more besides... have you had an Alfa specialist look at it for a diagnosis? Let us know how you get on.
