GT JTD Black Smoke and Whistling
Hi - I'm a newbie to the Alfa world with my GT, but so far am loving it. However, went down to Cornwall for a week and on the way back noticed that it is whistling louder than normal, and dumping black smoke when the engine is under load.
Nipped into the local Alfa dealer yesterday and they think a hose has split or come off....but no technicians were in on a saturday morning!!! So, I need to nip back in tomorrow morning, but thought, if it is a hose that has popped off then I might be able to rectify.
Had a look around but can't see anything. Does anyone think that it is a hose problem? Is it going to do damage if I need to drive it before repair (if dealer hasn't got part - need motor for work)??
Hopefully nothing too serious.............still under warranty however!!
Look forward to hearing from you guys!
