Should i repair again?? or break it?
I've got a 2004 147, 2 litre selespeed. Gutted is not the word for it. It blew up again! This is now the 3rd engine that's blown up on me...... bottom end rattling good and proper. I know they are notoriously bad, but 3 engines? First one rattled, so I replaced it with a 70,000 mile unit, even replaced the big end shells, and again 2000 miles later it blew the bottom end. Had all new oil and filters, can't explain that one. So another engine was put in it. I actually bought the whole car and ran it for a month. Had recipets from a alfa garage in cornwall, main dealer, full engine rebuild in 2007 and the bill came to £1800 so I left it alone just put a new belt on it, the bloody thing blew up again. Each time its after a trip from work to home hurrying it. At around 90 to 95 mph for about 20 mins. Now it should be able to cope with that!
Or is it just the round about by my house that's an alfa killer?
Any way rant over. I don't want to repair it again. So will sell as is or strip it, what do you think would recoup a tiny percentage of my wasted money. The car has full heated leather, perfect selepeed box
