159 timing chain repair recommended mechanics lancashire
I have just last week come back into the fold. I sold my 156 SW about three years ago but now have a lovely 159 SW.
The dealer informed me that the timing chain is going to need replacing soon, recommending that it be done before the Alfa service schedule. As I have had a chain go on my last car (almost ashamed to say a vectra) I know how costly it can be to recondition an engine. So I am keen to get this done as soon as possible.
I am looking for advice on a good mechanic/garage/specialist who can carry out this work for me and also look at the strange "electrical burning smell" that has just started coming from the engine.
I would ideally like to find a reliable mechanic in Lancashire but I am currently carrying out a lot of work in Birmingham so may consider getting work carried out there.
