Alfa 156 2 twin spark- ticking noise on start up
2000-model I have had from new.
Cam belt done at 65,000 miles- non alfa dealer. No problems just thought I should give in to publicity and get it done.
Before that always used Alfa dealer.
Now, 72,000, the car rattles on start up - sounds ticky. Seems to disappear when it warms up/picks up speed. Car just is not as smooth as it used to be and seems to pick up less well at slow speed. A bit noisy. Goes fine along road/motorway.
Took it back to Alfa garage and they say probably-cam belt/ tensioners. Are there other possibilities for this problem
