i fear the worst has happened
well after a weeks ownership, i fear the worst has happened to my sw. almost got home from work last night when i experience a knocking occuring on the engine. after checking to make sure nothing was loose, fired the engine up and noise is definatly in the engine. it appears to be the same noise as posted on youtube by tweenie "alfa 156 engine noise".
its strange as i have not lost any power in the engine at all just a loud knocking noise when accelerating.
an engine replacement would be too much money spent for me. but i have some hopes for it yet, its now in the garage and im awaiting conformation on the bad news.
so if the worst case scenario happens what option would i have. sell spares or repair or strip down for parts. i need to pull back 600 min to at least cover some of what i paid for it, what would be the best way of doing this?
