Hello guys! I have not yet introduced myself but figured I will do that when i have more time on my hands to include some nice pictures etc, anyways to the problem!
I own an Alfa 156 -98, 2.5 V6 engine and i absolutely love it. I have recently changed cam-belt, waterpump and all the things around that at my local alfa workshop but now have a disgusting sound coming from my engine, its been there before aswell so probably got nothing to do with the waterpump/cam-belt change.
Take a look at this video and listen (720p for better pic), at 0:23 you get a good view of what i think could be the problem, NOTE: im not at all sure that its actually the cause of the sound but it seems to be rolling around in a bad way.
YouTube - Alfa 156 bad engine sound
Anyways, heres what ive noticed;
When car is started and before it gets warm this sound NEVER occurs, not even slightly.
If i drive it for a long while and get it really hot etc. the sound seems to be even louder.
It doesnt seem to affect anything really, car starts perfectly and feels strong and good otherwise.
What could be wrong? any ideas? I will probably leave it to the alfa workshop anyway but im curious!
Sorry for the long post guys, just want to give you the correct info!
