ALFA 166 Twin Spark (99) Head Cracked???????

Help!!!! Started to investigate possible exhaust blowing around front manifold, couldn't see any signs of leakage, started removing manifold nuts, and as usual the studs came out with them, but (numbering from cam end), as we removed cylinder 3 studs, oil came leaking out of the top and bottom stud holes on. The car had been running very rough and we had just changed the Mass Air Analyser. Looks like a cracked head???????? Anyone had any experience of this??? Is this as bad as it looks????????

Sorry to hear of your troubles - I am not going to be of any help although I will suggest that you also post in 156 Tech lounge (where 2.0 TS is more popular) or possibly general discussion.

Someone will hopefully pop along soon who can help - Good Luck.

I have no experience of this, but as its normally the bottom end of the TS that goes, it should be fairly easy to get a new head at a reasonable price.
