Alfa 156 2.0 JTS

Leaking coolant

Hi all, looking for some advice, recently purchased 54 plate 156 jts and yesterday noticed steam/smoke coming from engine bay!!

Local mechanic has said the coolant manifold is leaking?

Is this a common fault?
Is this under warranty?
If not is it expensive to get fixed?

One more thing, Intermitent airbag warning light, any ideas?

Any help greatly appreciated.

Re: Leaking coolant

I assume he means the pipework that runs across the front of the engine and behind the exhaust manifold. My TS has an alloy one, but I've read somewhere later cars had plastic ones.

Warranty? Depends if you had two or three years (but the third is more limited). It will be at the dealers discretion probably.

Cost? No idea, but the exhaust manifold will probably have to come off.

Airbag light: Is this the red or amber one?? Maybe a loose connection under the seat or the sensor in the passenger seat squab is failing. Does it flicker when someone is in the passenger seat?

cheers, Gary
