Re: Long time road going 164 Q4 1994 project

I still need to disassemble the tops, but the rest is taken apart and the crankshaft is not looking so good, but that was expected. Next step will be to find 3.2 parts for this engine.

That is a good way to narrow down where the problem is 😊

Those sensors are not easy to find, but I believe they have been used in other Fiat and Lancia models.

Re: Long time road going 164 Q4 1994 project

So I have slowly started on the Q4 again - or rather I bought another Q4 engine, that I am taking apart, as it has some crankshaft issue (I don't no more about it), but it is complete. Whether this engine will be rebuild (maybe 3.2 or more) and put in the car, I have to decide on. Here are some phot...

Have you looked in the specific Q4 workshop manual regarding this? It should be available in the 'Manuals' section.

Re: The problem air bag

Is it a brand new control unit? If so, the problem must be somewhere else in the system, as I assume that the airbag light was flashing with the old control unit? The airbag system should be possible to connect to, using the alfa164diagnostics tool http://www.alfaromeo164register.com/viewtopic.php?f...

Welcome to the site. That sounds like an interesting project, hope to see that on the tracks in Sweden :) If you look at this thread, it is clear that the ECU is the same for manual and automatics, as it is also used in the 'Q', which is manual only: http://alfaromeo164register.com/viewtopic.php?t=2...

Re: problem when turning left

I don't recall if you did anything around the fuel pump, but my guess would be fuel starvation, most likely in the fuel tank. Does it also happen with a full tank?

Lose connections? Earth connections?

In my Q4 (driver airbag only) it is placed in the center console behind the radio, either above or below the engine ECU, so I suggest you look there for the actual number of the unit.
