2006 147 Selespeed noisy engine

Hi all,

I just bought a 2006 Selespeed 147 and so new to Alfa Romeo so just wondering that my car engine is quite loud every morning when i start it, it sounds like a diesel engine, after running for sometime, it becomes less noisy but still louder than the 2005Toyota Camry i used to have.

Another thing is that when i put it in CITY mode, the gear box change between 1-2-3 makes a noticable "CLICK" noise.

Is it normal with Alfa Romeo?
If not, where should i pay attention to?

I know nothing about your gearbox sorry , i have read that the variator can cause a noisy start up sounding like a diesel , theres loads of info here and on youtube about that .
Hope it all gets sorted .

Yep, best thing is to do a cambelt, water pump and cam shaft variator change, as mentioned by brave soul. The most common problem on the Twin Spark engine!
