Hello all I am in need of some help
I have a 2000, GTV T spark which I am guessing has just died.
On the way to work yesterday while sitting in traffic it suddenly developed a noise that I fist thought to be the exhaust breaking, it was a loud booming engine note added to the fact its still on its first one that made me think this, BUT it turns out that little problem will have to wait for another day as when I went to take it home the noise was coming from the engine.
Upon opening it up the plastic engine cover had split and something had come up through it, I am guessing one of the larger spark plugs, but as I only have a very basic knowledge I cant think why this has happened, I am arranging for the car to be taken to my mechanic as although it drives I donít think itís a good idea to.
Now I know this is one for the professionals to deal with and while I trust my mechanic, an independent as Alfa wouldnít be able to have a look at it until late next week, I was wondering if this has happened to any one else, and what to expect in the way of work.
Failing that any one want to buy a large silver Italian paper weight?
