My 147 seems to be dying. Please Help.!!!
Thanks in advance for your help. Much appreciated.
I bought a beautiful Alfa 147 2002, 2.0 92k Lusso about 3 months ago. Before I bought it done the routine checks ie oil levels where good, full service history, cam belt replaced on time. In-fact it was in perfect condition ran smoothly and was obviously well looked after.
However after about a week of having the car (which I bought privately) the cruise control stopped working and then “oil pressure low” warning came on, I took it straight to alfa to check the oil and they said it was not at min, probably about half way down so was ok. They topped it up however with Castrol 5/40 which I am sure should have been 10/40 but they insisted it was the correct oil. Any way since this my car has gone from bad to worse engine has lost power especially in the low revs and engine is very, very noisy.
Any ideas before I go back to them and start charging me £1000’s in repair bills?
