Whinge of the day...
Oh pain. My daily whinge.
Me freakin boxer is blowing some oil on start-up which then continues for the first 50m or so.
It's just up on it's 124,000 birthmile.
I know that there was a thread about this recently, and it said that the boxers will drip oil from the valve stems when left standing, but this occurs overnight. It started on Tuesday morning. I haven't been reving it in the high 6's recently, but I wonder if the trip to Wales and a constant 80MPH for 1.5 hrs has pushed it past the line of wear and tear.
I'd say it's done over the CAT as well...
Car shall be retiring soon. Another 145 to break. You can have the parts off of it, if they haven't fallen from it by then. Known my luck with this car, it will catch fire tonight.
For Sale: Alfa Romeo Spark Plugs - NGK laser platinum, 10mm & 14mm. PM me.
