A while back I posted the sad story of my 147's excessive oil consumption, (it was about 1 ltr every 800 kms). Well things just got worse as time went on - oil consumption just went up. I spoke to my dealer who seemed genuinely concerned and asked me to bring the car in (at this stage it had about 5000kms on it).
They changed the oil and asked me to drive the car for 1000kms, then bring it back so they could drain & weigh the oil (to gauge precisely how much it had used).
It turns out that there was a fault in the No.2 cylinder and its valves, (can't say exactly what the fault was) - presumably from new.
Anyway, this problem was worked-on at the dealership for the next 2 weeks - new cylinder lining, piston rings and valves. The result? - my car has gone from a serious oil-guzzler (see above) to using vertually none ! (I have travelled 1500kms since and the oil level has not moved). It goes without saying, I'm pretty happy, but how these faults get through Alfas "quality control" is amazing.</strong><hr /></blockquote><font size="1" face="Verdana, Helvetica, sans-serif">I have exactly the same problem!
Yesterday I’ve dropped my “bella” at the Alfa Service, and I’ve complain of the excessive oil consumption, they told me the same thing as they told you…
I’m waiting for the result; maybe I have the same problem you had!!! eek! frown
