I am new to this, so here i go.
I have just been given my old Alfa 1.8 156 T Spark back after i sold it over 1yr ago.
Yes that's right given it back no cash involved.
Only one problem there is a tapping noise that seems to be around the pulley area, can't seem to pin it down to a precise part.
Apart from that the car seems fine.
Could it be the water pump? as the water does not seem to be getting pumped around by any great amount.
i have not run the engine at any speed, but will do this tomorrow when i get it towed home.
(no Mot or road tax so can't road test the car yet) any ideas would be useful to pin this down to a specific part.
it may seem sad but i am so happy to get it back, loved it when i first had it.
Will let you know the outcome when i finally get it back on the road.
Thanks all, great forum.
