Alfa Romeo 156 2.0 ts blocked engine, need help!!!
I was driving at 50 km/h when suddenly i heard a metal braking sound from the underneath the car,(I thought that it was coming from the clutch or the gear box) so i pressed the clutch and the sound stopped, but when i lifted the feet of the clutch the sound came back. Then the car engine stopped working so i parked the car on the side of the road. Now the engine seems to be blocked and when turning the engine on the engine does not move.
I've called many mechanics and they all have different opinions but non of them were an Alfa specialist. Some say that the clutch has broken and is somehow blocking the engine, some say that the stretcher on the time belt has broken (the time belt itself is new) and some say that the gearbox is broken.....
The car is 1997 model and has been driven 120.000 km.
What is your opinion?
Thanking you in advance,
