2003 147 - High pitched wining noise
Hi there - hopefully someone can help with the following. My 7 year old 147 has started making a high pitched wining noise when starting the engine - usually worst first thing in the morning - this can last for several minutes and then usually disappears after a while. However, just recently I can sometimes still hear this noise when changing gear. Cambelt / variator were changed again two years ago and I have done about 24,000 miles since. I mentioned this noise when I took the car for it's last service five weeks ago (independent Alfa garage) and they said it could be the tensioner - as is usually the case the car was behaving perfectly at the garage and they said they could'nt hear anything wrong. Any suggestions as to the cause and likely costs of getting sorted ? Many thanks for any assistance on this.
