156 Cam tensioner, 02 plate, is it worth repair?
I have a 02 plate 156 1.8 Turismo, only purchased 10,000 miles ago with new Cambelt! low and behold the tensioner has gone doing god knows what damage internally. I'm Told the bill could go up to a couple of thousand depend where you go, Alfa dealerships especially. I have found locally what used to be a alfa fiat dealership and they are still in ownership of diagnostics etc for alfa's and can do the work.
They have offered to remove the head and give me a full estimate of what work needs doing for £100, I am not very mechanically minded so not to sure whether this is a reasonable price.
Just after varying opinions on whether or not price is reasonable and where do you draw the line on the price for repair?
My thoughts are if repair costs £1500 I still have Car worth £2000 as opposed to scrapping it?
Thank in advance
