156 2.4 10v JTD 2000 service help
I am new to this forum and new to Alfa's
I am just about to embark on fixing my newly bought 2000 156 2.4 10v JTD 120,000miles.
I am planning to:
Replace cam belt and tensioner
Aux belts and Aux tensioner
Remove intake manifold and clean (new gasket?)
Remove EGR valve and clean
Clean butterfly valve, when I figure what the hell it is.
Remove and clean MAF.
Oil change, and Fuel filter.
And Tappet adjustment, if i can find the information.
R/R rear brake pads
I have tools, I have stands and safety gear, I have Alfa cam tools, I have elearn, access to many 'how to's' on the web. I don't have a workshop, and don't have compressed air.
Does anyone have any advise for me please.
Especially how to change Aux tensioner, and slightly moving the engine. Wether a jack and stands will suffice.
Also what oil does every one recommend. I have heard Selenia 5W-40 synthetic is the way, but was thinking of Selenia 10W-60, or Halford's 5W-50 Synthetic, due to higher miles.
I will be doing it outside, and possibly in the drizzle.
Thanks for all your help, as any is better than none.
This is for my peace of mind and enjoyment
