1995 1.6 Boxer engine questions
Into my second week of Alfa ownership and looking to clarify a few things with my 1.6 Boxer 145.
Firstly - what should the normal engine running temperature be? Mine seems to hover about a quarter of the way up the gauge from cold. It only got past half way when I was stuck in traffic once. Is this normal or do I need a new thermostat?
Secondly, what is the replacement frequency for the cambelt? The car has done 125k km and I'm not sure if/when it was changed.
Finally, when I turn on the ignition, there is a whirring sound from somewhere behind the passenger side of the dashboard for about 10 seconds. Seems to be normal, but curious as to what it is.
Thanks in advance for your help and advice.
