Re: Help needed-156 V6 What to look out for??
I've owned a 99S 2.5 V6 S3 now since 2000 ..... Still love driving it etc....
Check out the Radiator .... fins falling out etc .... replaced mine recently and it's something you'd want to be aware of before winter.
Floor it to 7000 rev's if you can .... if you lose no power experience no spluttering above 5000 then you MAF is ok too. (just replaced mine recently also)
Front Bushes .... also a problem MOT failure for mine.
I have also had to replace Lambda sensor as that failed too another MOT failure.
But i can assure you .... if you find the right one, like i did , even after 3 MOT failures you will still Love your Bella.
