Help - may need to replace water pump and cam belt
Hi - posted my mito problem (overheating) the other day and a couple of responses have come back saying probably water pump (it's done 62,000 miles and it's a 1.6 JTDM).
Trying to decide what to do - my local Alfa garage has closed, should I take it to the next nearest(Cheshire) or another none Alfa garage. Also, I use to get my previous cars (non Alfa) fixed by a local guy - stopped using him because I had warranty but that has now ceased.
Is it worth buying arts from Alfa workshop (I think you can do that?) and getting my local man to do it?
Really fed up because got this problem, could do with 2 new tyres and next service due in 300 miles. Had my gearbox replaced before the warranty expired too and I am aware that seems to be a problem (ie will it go again).
Don't know whether to cut my losses and trade in against another Alfa or other used car
