Alfa 156 2.4 JTD sort of spares or repairs.
So, my 156 is up for sale. Y plate 2001. 84,000 miles but it is being used daily so it will creep up.
I got it with no service history after 27,000 miles (there is some mention of something at 51,000 miles but I couldn't be sure) but an assurance that the cambelt was done at around 62,000 miles but I have no proof. I have some old MOT's and then just receipts for what I have done.
The body work is fairly poor. Lots of marks, paint flaws and dent all round. Passenger side is the best side.
Blue leather Momo interior in good condition, a couple of colour scuffs on drivers seat and a small rip in passenger seat which has been glued to prevent further movement. All interior bulbs replaced. New leather handbrake and gear gaiter. White LED interior bulbs. Halfords Super brilliance head light bulbs and LED sidelights. Clear side repeaters.
Mechanically, I have tried to catch up on what needed doing. I have dropped the oil and changed the filter. Also changed the diesel filter, pollen/cabin filter and fitted a K & N air filter. MAF has been cleaned, EGR has been stripped and cleaned, clutch master cylinder and linkage has been cleaned and lubed. Engine mounts have all been replaced except the one at the front passenger side that connects to the gearbox. New CV boots. New Upper wisbones. New front shocks. New front drop links (not fitted). New discs and pads front. New rear trailing arm on drivers side. 3 x nearly new Primewell tyres and 1 x nearly new Pirelli P8000 tyre. there is still some knocking from the suspension but I am pretty sure that the supplied drop links will cure it. Bosch wipers 4 months ago. Air con blows very cold and heater blows hot. Auto climate control works perfectly. Car only shows between 50 and 70 degrees. Checking on Multiscan shows just over 70 most of the time so I am not concerned. Fans (both speeds) work when they need to. Never over heated and blows hot after 3 or 4 miles of town driving. 2 miles if I go straight out on to faster roads.
Car pulls very well in all gears. Engine runs nice and strong. Clutch pedal is smooth but occasionally slips under hard acceleration in 3rd or 4th. There is a wiring issue with the passenger airbag which illuminates a flashing airbag light on the dash.
This is a car that I have spent some money on but for me it is becoming too expensive and not worth continuing with. I would break it myself but I have nowhere to keep it. There is plenty of money in this if I could break it. Simple things like Leather interior, wheels and tyres, doors, boot and bonnet could pull in £500.00 quite easily let alone the engine/gearbox/suspension parts and running gear. Or just put a clutch in (it may need this but I can't be sure, still driving it every day and it drives okay) and use it as a run around.
I'm looking for £350.00
on this one. It also has around 1months MOT and just under 1 months tax.
Give me a bell on 07841 870778 if you are interested. Car is located in Leamington Spa.
