1987 Alfa Spider with Motronic. Vehicle sat in a garage for 5 years without being started or used. I replaced both fuel pumps, oil, coolant hoses etc. Engine will start for a few seconds and die. If I hit the accelerator it accelerates a bit and dies. If I don't hit the accelerator it dies after a few seconds anyway. Any ideas?

Welcome to the BB.

Actually, despite the sticker on one of the computers, your 1987 Spider has L-jetronic (Motronic was used in the 1990 - 1994 Spiders & has both FI & ignition combined in one computer).

See the link in my signature to a page of info about the L-jet system used in our Spiders. Then come up to the Spider section - lots more 'traffic' there.

Stuck injectors. Unplug them and put 12V across them should here it click. No Click stuck!! I use a bench supply for this.
Send the rail to OKI and they'll fix you up right.
