I'm keen on a 156 diesel 5 pot.
I've found my old 5 pot audi to be quite straightforward, bomb proof and about as complicated as wood. but very thirsty
hence why i'm looking for a Derv.
I'm not used to modern cars at all so the thought of owning something else is a bit scary.
but i'm really keen on the 156. looks a bit special.
any common faults I should know about? Any expensive parts i should be aware of?
From my brief time on here I see there is a problem with water pump failure, resulting in cambelt failure..
How much is it to replace belt , water pump, and tensioner + labour? And is it a DIY job like on my 5 pot audi?
Also, what options do i have in diesel 5pot engines and power of each version, and how much extra power can be chiped out of each of them?
And, also, What do they sound like? anyone got any videos? what are they like with induction and exhaust mods? Anyone tried running a 3 Inch turbo back exhaust?
Sorry for all the questions.. have no clue about all things alfa. audi yes, alfa no idea. lol
