Horrible engine noise
I have had my GTV for 2 weeks. For about a week it has started to develope a loud ticking noise when reved to say 1000-1500 rpm from cold.
It appears to come from the main body of the engine. It disappears when the engine gets warm.
Any ideas guys?
It only does it when the engines cold!
I have taken it to an independant Alfa specialists (Albertos Alfas) for him to "have a look".
He's just rang to say he doesn't know what it is. Now I am getting worried.
(EDIT) Someone here at work has suggested it may be the exhaust to manifold that is not tight enough!! I do know that just before I bought it, it had a new one fitted. Would the fitters have disturbed this?
I have 3 months warranty on it, so I suppose its back to the dealer with it.
