Welcome to the forum.
As far as I know,
failures are unheard of on this particular car.
sensor tells the
in which position the engine is in and from there it knows when to spark the plugs,so it's unlikely to be this.
coolant temperature sensor fault won't through up a fault code since the
just adjusts fueling to the temperature that is given to it from the sensor.You really need to see the live data from the
to determine wether the sensor is telling the truth or not.
A faulty sensor could give a similar fault as the one your experiencing,as could a faulty Lambda sensor.If these are found to be O.K,then have the
tested,just in case.Other than that,I'm out of ideas.......
I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
