Hi all, ive got a feb 96, 155 2.0 16v t.s sportpack model, it is costing me about £280 in parts and over £300 in labour to get my variator replaced at my local alfa dealer! which i think is extortionate! But anyway, im booked in for next tuesday. The thing is - i want to visit some friends that are about a 3 hour drive away this weekend, and i was wondering if the variator is likely to damage the engine at all? It doesnt matter if the variator itself becomes worn further as im getting it replaced on tuesday like i said, im just worried other engine components might be affected??
Do you think im ok to go on the visit this weekend, or should i put it off?
Also i bought some mobil 1 a few days ago to use for its next oil change, but have since read on here that the selena oil is more suited to my engine, i dont mind paying for more oil if its better for my engine, what do ya think?
