Engine noise Alfa 145 1.4 TS => Opinion wanted
Recently i bought my first Alfa it's a beatiful black alfa 145 form '98
(55000 km), I bought it by a orginal Alfa dealer with a half year waranty
But i do hear something weird when i start it :
The engine sounds for upto 5 seconds like an old Diesel engine (sqeaks and
ratling a heard for a short period, to then dissapear.)
As i do have some technical knowledge i suspose this is caused because the
oil has dissapeared from the top of the engine and that the valves an
camshaft are for a short moment without oil (untill oil pump has delivered
pressure again), this would explain why this sound is only be heard when
the engine is started as it not has been running for a period longer then
approx 2 hours. (a cold start in the mornig the sound is even louder)
I asked the dealer if this is normal, and he told me not to worry as this
should be normal......
Could somebody please tell me if this behavior from a 1.4 TS is normal ? ,
because i still have a one month waranty left..... and this sound make my
hair rise in the morning.
Btw i already checked the oil evertthing OK....
