The 355 is back after a visit to Sal at Racing Red to try and solve the ‘spluttering’ problem. He went through the car but the main thing he did was clean the injectors.
Using a device that he has, he cleaned and tested all the injectors, which has not been done since I have owned the car.
He also went in and change all the spark plugs. My records indicate that these haven’t been changed in over 8 years, so doing both should make a difference.
While the car was in it had its annual service and rego check, so when I picked it up it was good to go for another 12 months.
On the drive home I did notice a marked difference in performance, which was pleasing. However, while parking the car I did get a ‘lights but no crank’ issue on one restart. I’m kind of wondering whether that has anythign to do maybe with the alarm not fully disengaging? I’ll have to monitor that more closely. However, no ‘spluttering’ was present which is great. Fingers crossed that at least that issue has been resolved and I can enjoy the car over the holidays.
