Alfa Romeo 164 3.0 12 Valve – Engine management
Back in the early to mid 2000s, I owned a series of Alfa Romeo 164 3.0 12 valves. The cars were agony and ecstasy, in equal measure. I adored them.
12 Valve Engine Management
- Uses Bosch Motronic management
- The Distributor cap is shared with the E32 730 and 735i M30 straight 6
- Poor idle is down to the idle air control valve, the unit appears to be very similar to the unit used on the 2.0 Vauxhall Cavalier EFi.
- On the whole, the setup is quite reliable.
