Engine Noise at between 2.5K and 3K revs?
First of all the car:
'01 Alfa 156, 1.8 TS, 48K
Rattling noise coming from the engine between 2,500 and 3,000
The cars starts up normally and revs freely but between these revs there is a strange noise, initially i thought it was an exhaust problem like bafflers or something loose. Checked this out but the noise appears to be coming from the lower front part of the engine.
Sounds like a........hmmm......pebble in a can been rattled gently although probably not as bad.
Was going to get the timing belt and tensioners done at 50K but i am now wondering if there is something starting to go in the engine.
Big end......, any ideas?
Do the alfas have timing chains or belts?
