Alfa 147 1.6 ts engine
Has anyone experienced this? If so, what have you done about it?
Occasionally, when I start the car up it makes a roaring, low pitch sound much like a diesel engine. Also, when idle it often sounds like a diesel too....it's as if it's literally ticking over rather than running nice and smooth.
What is your acceleration through the low gears like. 1st is very patchy on mine - i'm thinking it may be a timing problem as it often hesitates.
Thanks in advance to all who reply...
