hey, I own 2003 Alfa romeo 147 2.0 t-spark Selespeed (50k km odo), have the car for 3.5 years and it was running perfectly without any engine issues. 2 weeks ago i broke timing belt doing 100-120km/h on highway.. all 16 valves were bent/broken + head cracked Engine has been repaired (head and valves were replaced with good used ones and all other parts with new), engine runs ok, i have done 400km after repair, but i have following issues: engine wont start without pressing the accelerator pedal, poor idle, bad fuel economy, loss of power i wanted to reset the throttle body and ecu but cant make the procedure, since i cant start engine without pressing the accelerator. any ideas what can cause the problem? thanks!
