the last week my brother goes to oficial service to change oil filter and oil. its cost about 120€
when get the car, the steering was more hard, nothing importante, we thinks... but after 2 days, the car was lossing to much fluid !!! and have a noise very hard and bad when turn the steer.
go to the alfa mechanics, we was thinking the problem can be a break tube of pump, cause of the change of oil motor (the problem come with this change).
the mechanics, said me yesterday "the problem is the pump, its casuality, and we don't touch the pump or tubes...".
repair this problem, cost 561€ + IVA (16%) + work hand... (80€)
(total about 750/780 €)
I know there is a kit for repair pumps, but the mechanics don't know it (perhaps...) and can't said me the price of this kit (mechanics was trying to sell me the pump
don't have other solutions...)
Yesterday, go to other alfa garaje (I must do 190kms...), and said me the kit repair cost about 30€, and need 4 hours to dismantle, repair, and mount (if this is the problem of the lossing fluid...). Total about 250€...
Well...... its very dificult to desmaintle it, open, repair and mount again? the las month we change motor and transmision a Mb 190 2.0D, we know a little of mechanic
Need special tools for repair it?
Anybody with same problems on Q4 or V6 24v? (I know the pump of Q4 and FWD 24v are not the same...
Spanish Alfa Mechanics are patetic!!!!!!!
