New 147 owner - Anything to look for ?
Hi , new to this forum and to alfa's although i have had a fiat bravo for some time now , so a big HELLO to everyone here ;-) .
To my question(s) , i have just bought my missus an alfa 147ts 1.6 lusso 2nd hand ( we'll be the 2nd owner ) , its done 40k and has fully stamped up alfa servicing at 12,24,36k , basically looking for any info on possible issues before they become major problems , i'm a little confused on the cambelt issue , from what i've been told by desira they check the belt at 36k and only change if needed but the tsb from alfa apparently recomends changing it at 36K , which is correct ? and are they as much of a problem as they are made out to be ( had the same sort of stuff with the bravo but not been an issue so far ) . Looking forward to getting your feedback and hope to have a trouble free time running this car .
