Any advice on alfa gt 1.9 engine start plz
yesterday evening, i was in a pub car park and when me and the mrs was going to go home, i started the car and there was this noise from the engine - it sounded like a loud rattling noise like something was hitting something and did not sound healthy at all.
Very strange as everything has been okay - no warning faults etc. AA came out and said it sounds like from the bottom part of the engine like its been choking and theres smoke from the top of the engine and out the exhaust when idle for more then 10 seconds. They said it doesnt sound good and doesnt know what exactly it is.
Has anyone come across this similar problem before? Need to get it towed today and im not sure if my local mechanic would know what this is as they dont really specialise in Alfas as well.
