Hi guys, first thread on here so please bare with me as I'm not mechanically minded but certaintly have the desire to learn (which is good seeing as I've bought an Alfa
Picked up my 2.0 TS GTV a couple of days ago
. It's got several receipts dating back over the years, but the last service was done 18 months ago (!). Also the Cambelt was changed almost 4 years ago, but it's only done 20,000 miles in that time.
Do I need the cambelt changing? I know it's reccommended every 30,000 miles, but 4 years seems a fair while.
Another fault is that the revs are a bit unsettled until I come to a complete standstill, is this normal? I understand that a good service will help, but failing that is it likely to be the MAF sensor?
A few other quickies, what is the best oil to use, and what make of spark plugs & HT leads would you reccommend?
I intend on fitting an upgraded exhaust soon, and generally tidying the car up to a good standard, but I want to get the fundamental things sorted out first.
Thanks for reading.
