I spent the past hour replacing the main fuel filter on the alfa
in a gravel parking lot.......
I went to the local autozone to buy some oil for the alfa and the jag and like a mile from the ‘zone the alfa conks out and dies. I pull into a parking lot and start it back up and rev it up to 2k and it dies. I do the alfa basics, fiddle with the fuses, hit the pump, jump the fuse. Nothing, so i push the alfa to the side of the lot and start the trek back.
after 30 minutes of walking i make it.
I grab a zesty drink, a filter, a pump and a box of fuses.
After laying on 90F gravel and creating a small environmental hazard I replace the filter and hope that it fixes it, I start the car and BAM it fires right up and goes to a 800 rpm idle. I rev it a few times to make sure it’s fixed and i start driving home.
AND I MADE IT.
I probably should of replaced it a while back
