weird problem! test the techanics out there
I bought an alfa 166 3.0l 2002. Went for a 65,000Km. I changed all the pullies, timing belt, tensioners, rocket cover gaskets, water pump you name it! I left the place drove 10km home fine. Next day went to go to get new tyres fitted. Accelerated slightly heavy, the engine cut like a rev limiter the heat light came on and temperature sorted. Then returned straight to normal.
Pulled over, check coolant, seems might have been an air lock. Level was below min. Refiled the water took off drove about 3km tried to rev it again same thing. any suggestions?? mechanic wants to see it in the morning, thinks it could be a manifold sensor or thermos . anyone ever had same problem.
