147 1.6 TS Sounds Like Jet
I have a 2002 147 1.6 TS. There is a very loud noise coming from the right front of my car, sounds like it just behind the right front wheel. Its there when i start it up and it doesn't go away at all. When u hit round about 5000 RPM it sounds like a super charger on steroids!!! and im not kidding.
I'v had it checked out by our local Alfa dealer here in South Africa. They said it might be the veriator ( witch i still dont know what that is ) but it is nothing serious. The noise started when i recieved my car back after its 120 000 km major service, witch i belive they change the cam belt?
Is it something to worry about? Can it lead to a loss in performance? And how can i fix it?
