Afla 156 Veloce 1.8 Overheating - NICE
I Posted a link about 2 months ago, basically my cambelt snapped and after paying to get the work done I had a series of issues with overheating then!, 1. the tensioner broke, 2. I had a cracked block in the engine. Thankfully the garage took responsbility and did the work at no additional cost.
BUT the car still overheated and they could give a definate WHY! , they said it might be the Rad but I found this hard to believe as yes the rad aint in best of shapes but the car didn't overheat before the cambelt went.
Now the car still overheats at about 110oC but then the needle will fluctuate up and down and sometimes go into the red, when it does the car smells of oil and white smoke occaisonally leaks out of the exhaust! I cant drive the car further than 15 miles without risking a fatal breakdown.
Reluctant to take it back to same garage as not confident in their ability, all in all seriously thinking of getting rid as the car sounds awful (like a dying diesel!) but before I get rid of my beloved 156 I thought I would check with your wisdom : )
