Help Water

Alright guys, over the last few months i've posted a couple of times regarding loss of coolant and i also mentioned that i thought i'd lost a bit of power, well after the local dealer diagnosed and replaced the water pump i thought that that would be that, however i was still unhappy with a slight erratic idle when i used the air con, back to the dealer only to be told that this was inside the acceptable limits, most unhappy, still not convinced that the coolant loss was completely sorted so back to the dealer's on Tuesday, now been told that the head gasket is on the way out, we're talking about a 147 1.6 turismo with just over 30,000 miles on the clock, my big worry is that when they do the head that it will only last for a limited amount of time. I really love my Alfa but would i be best getting the work done under warranty and then cutting my losses. Any input will be welcome

Re: Water

see how it goes once the do the job.

If you can buy the extened warranty

Idle with aircon on should be no problem - mines never been. the system opens the throttle slightly to conteract the compressor, so sounds like its not working
