Whining when cold?
Hi, after 4 years of relatively trouble free GTV motoring I fear it could all be coming to and end! my 99 plate 2.0 GTV has started to develop a whining noise when steering this has got worse and worse over the last few months, it gets progressively better as the car warms up, and until recently the noise would dissappear completely when up to running temp.
It appears that it must be related to the power steering in some way? anyway I am gonna bite the bullet and take it to the garage soon, however would like to get an idea of the problem before I take it in and get fleeced. On that point can anyone recommend any good and honest Alfa specialist fairly local (I live in Watford), the last place I went (cant remember the name - based on Honeypot lane I think in Stanmore/Queensbury area) were very expensive and seemed to create problems, I went in with a snapped throttle cable (£100) came back to a car revving at 3000rpm had to get the Labna sensor changed another £300 - very suspicious.
All advice gratefully received.
