156 Engine Swap 1.8 TS
I'm new to this forum, and to owning an alfa i've owned mine for 3 months, and i'm already on first name terms with the guy and the local auto factors. Lol.
Driving back on the motorway today by engine started to loose power, so much so that the car was stuggling to keep at 60 and on hills dropped down to 40 in third ot fourth gear.
On restarting the engine it makes a horrible noise on tick over but disappears with rev's the oil level is ok, but it does eat it (4 liters per 500 miles)
I'm guessing this is something quite serious, so considering an engine swap I have a 52 reg with the on board multifunction display thing and i've the the option of an x reg, 1.8 TS for good money and wondered, if they're likely to be the same engine codes?
Any help or advise would be appreciated, as i'm new to alfa's but getting to know mine quite quickly.
