Re: HELP!!!! Almost an Alfa 146 1.8 Ts owner.....
Time to sniff out a local indipendant Alfa specialist, as this will keep the cost right down, Meanwhile your going to have to go to Alfa and ask for the keycode for your car, so that in an emergency you can get it started again, they will charge around £12 for that as they have to contact Alfa in Italy to get it.
Cambelt are fairly reliable, well in the fact that they reliably fail on time, honestly if you can't prove it's age then change it. £2000 is the upper limit but you can buy recon engines for around 1200, and the 3-4 hours labour to fit it.
