Hi fellow alfaowners,
Not having real problems with my GTV during the past 8-9 months, it was due for sth and what a thing.
The temperature went up to 110 and no warm air from heater , I drow back home immediately (3-4 miles),called the road help.
The guy checked the car, realized there was no water, added 4-5 liters of water, and after 10-20 seconds the water boiled. the car can still start and run but he said it is too risky to drive to the garage.
He also said he thinks the engine is DEAD! mAN, NOOO.. I said it is still running, and i just drew 3-4 miles after i realized the problem , how come!!!He said he could smell benzine in the water(i guess it is called the head tank)
So today I called a transporter to take it to the alfa service as it is so precious to me, but
Any ideas, I read the forum. It might be a head gasket, it means it will cost me over 1000 euros, maybe 2. But is it possible the engine is completely dead. I am waiting a call from the service for the information, but I am looking for some hope!!
Well, wish me luck.And any cheering up messages will be welcome.
