I would buy one from Larry at Alfa Parts Exchange if Centerline Alfa does not sell a new one.

Or, you may be able to start the car without it. Just plug that fuel line? Richard2 can start his Milano without it hooked up, and I spect I could mine as well.

Places like OK Injectors or Cruizin Performance can often resurrect an injector. They clean them with solvents & an ultrasonic bath.

As Del said, mine starts fine most of the time without the CSI hooked up. The car came to me that way and it starts so well, I never bothered to reconnect it. If it's very cold out, below say 15F, or it hasn't run for a month or so, I may have to crank it a couple of times, but it has never failed to start.

110% true but the issue is that if it`s stuck open gas will keep on flowing thru

sure i plugged the line.you guys covered all the bases.firstly she start like a brand new car.really.the trouble is for about 4-5 minutes she goes from 4 -5 cyl's working till finally all 6 are banging right.then she runs 101%.i thought the initial enrichment from the cold start injector would take out that problem once and for all.i do have an ultra sound cleaning device.perhaps there's carbon buildup???. right now before i plugged it up i could blow with just breathing strength and it let my breath thru.i think i'll put it thru the ultra sound cleaner.there is a electro magnet and spring to release and close the fuel and not much more.

"the trouble is for about 4-5 minutes she goes from 4 -5 cyl's working till finally all 6 are banging right.then she runs 101%"

If the car starts with the CTI line unhooked and plugged, ie, no fuel, injector removed and hole plugged, then the above 4-5 cylinder situation is not caused by that injector, or lack of.

Which plugs are you using? Does sound like plugs clearing.

Our Milano, as well the 91S and 94LS, runs very well with the NGK Iridium plugs, although there are lower cost options. Do not try the Bosch Plus 4 plugs. Never had them work well in either our Milano or the 91S. They tended to foul. And as I've mentioned, probably ad nauseam, lol, I use a fuel system/injector cleaner now and then in all the Alfas. No injector problems.

I would also make sure the dist and rotor are absolutely clean, uncracked, and free of corrosion. Also, the side of dist wiring and plug are undamaged and clean. Our Milano's would eventually back off, sometimes make partial contact, and had to be wired tight to the dist.

I use the NGK BPR6EIX plugs in my Milano, and they so far have worked well for a long time. Car starts instantly, you turn the key and it's running, and runs fine thereafter. However, no, they don't shine your shoes, or pour you a drink. Just let you hear the great sounds of the engine, lol.
