Remove the TDC sensor and see if any metal fragments have been picked up by it.The sensor is magnetic and will obviously attract any errant pieces of metal in the bell housing.This will cause the sensor to give false readings and hence cause problems.

Also,check the connections to it as these can corrode and give bad contact.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
