Very sick 147 - timing belt issues and woes....
I could do with a little advice....
I know there are other threads similar to this but just after a bit of personalised advice really.
My beloved Alfa 147 1.9 JTD is seriously sick. on a 54 plate.
I originally got a warning light for cam shaft or crank shaft pulley and it sounded like a jet taking off... I had it towed to a garage and they've just quoted me £660 because the belt has slipped a few teeth and it's cause the following damage...
1. Stripped cam pulley
2. stripped top keyway built in to it.
3. put strain and tried twisting bottom keyway?
4. needs a new cam pulley crank shaft pulley (alfa only i've been told)
5. new belt
6. four inlet buckets
7. piston hit valve - but i've been told they haven't bent because on a diesel they are straight up or something?
I'm no mechanic but have been messing with my own cars since i was 17 so a lot of little things i know about but all the stuff i've been told is like a foreign language to me.
Is this a good price? Do I have to be wary of anything after the work has been done?
Should I scrap the car?
Has anyone had this done and can advise?
My garage has always been reputable and fair. and they do a fair bit of work on high end cars (aston, bentley, range rover)
Thanks in advance with anything you can offer me...
