Hi,

I've just bought myself a 91 Maserati 222 SR with a 2.8 liter engine. The car had been not driven for a year. It is in good condition, but the engine has some troubles.

When I first test droved it, it started badly and idling was very bad when the engine was cold, but when the engine got warmed up, these problems were gone.

Yesterday the car was delivered to me. The problems mentioned earlier were not gone but they were not so serious anymore. So I went for a drive. Got to drive about 3km and then when I lifted foot off gas pedal the engine stalled. It started again when I tried, ran for about 1-2 sec and then again stalled. Started it again, and the engine didn't stall if I pressed gas pedal a little, so I got do drive to nearby gas station with car few more times stalling. But after that when it stalled in the gas station it didn’t start again. There were no weird noises, the car just died and didn't start again.

Any ideas what could be the problem considering that the car hasn’t been seriously driven for about a year?

I also need to do cam belt change, so all good sites for parts would be helpful, because I live in Estonia and we don't have a local dealer here and it's on of the first Biturbos here.

Best regards,
Vigri

Hi,

I have used the car now daily for about a week, and it runs great. But there are also some problems left.
• The speedometer doesn’t show the speed correctly, when I drive at 100 km/h speedometer shows 70 km/h.
• The fuel level gauge only shows maximum of ¼ of the tank even if the tank is full.
• When the air conditioning is turned on it started to blow in bad stink but when air conditioning is turned off it stops. Does it have somewhere an air filter for air conditioning unit or what might be the problem?
