GT 2.0 JTS crackling noise when accelerating after car has warmed up
Hi doodz - I have a 57 plate GT 2.0 Blackline - JUST gone over 60k, and I have a noise that I also had on my previous car for around 3 years - a 156 2.0 - only with the GT its louder.
When the car is cold it is totally fine - no probs, but once its been on for about 20 mins it starts…
When moving off at low revs there is a sparky crackling noise, sounds like its coming from under the bonnet.
It doesn't sound like a vibration.
Its not really loud, but doesn't sound right.
Hasn't affected performance.
Nothing is loose underneath - checked - no heatshields etc.
At standstill you can rev the heck out of it and it doesn't occur.
I don't thrash it.
Previous owner ran it on Selenia Racing - my Alfa man has subsequently filled it with 20k.
Coincidentally, around the same time as I started to notice the crackling noise.
Someone suggested is could be related to the aircon pump, but still does it with aircon turned off.
Only occurs when engine is warm.
