Engine Mechanical problem
2000 Alfa Romeo 156 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Manual 90000 miles

My alfa starts on a push or tow every time.1st time. It will crank over and nearly bite but then drains the battery. Something is not letting it start but I just dont know what. I had a new crank/camshaft and lambda sensor fitted but to no avail. Could the fuel cut off switch have affected this when I severlely hit a speed bump? But wouldn't this mean it just would start even on a tow? I'm nearly all out of ideas and its so frustrating as it drives like a dream when its going, bar some flat spots at low revs (possibly the MAF). Going to try a new fuel pump relay and reset the fuel cut off switch today as I am clutching at straws! Any ideas guys?
