Couple more questions....leaks and paint.
hi, more random stuff from me and my 156....
ok, i have two slight leaks. when i say slight, i mean i have a foam mat on the floor of my garage, at the front, and on that mat, both leaks leave fluid marks no wider in diameter than that of a coffee mug, with not much build up.
one is engine oil, coming from the gearbox end of the sump by the looks of it, if you look from the front of the car, it is slightly to the right of the front bumper "V". anyone seen/fixed anything similar?
second one, appears to be the selespeed. joy. coming from the passenger side front wing, just infront of the wheels. i spoke to a specialist who told me to keep an eye on it as it could be the pump, but it has remained the same for two weeks. the selespeed fluid level is still showing over max on the filler cap dipstick, and the only thing that has changed is the length of time the pump takes to prime once the driver's door is opened. this is now around 7-8 seconds. pump knackered?
also, paint. ive been trying to get some touchup paint for mine, and went to halfords.
i have Grigio Chiaro Met, code 612/A. funny, because halfords dont have a listing for 612/A. 612 seemed to be just one colour, and didnt look right, so they tried 612/D, which ive found is too dark. has anyone bought a colour match from there before for a silver alfa? where else can i get one?
wouldnt mind using halfords, as their touch up pens for other cars are £5.99, and the mixed one i got was £7.99 for around 3 times as much paint as the pens.
