gtv engine squeal
Hi there hope u can help.
I have just bought a 1997 alfa gtv with a 2.0 ts engine. The problem i have is that when it starts from cold it idles a bit rough until heated up, no big problem apart from it can cut out before its warm but the main problem is when it heats up it has an awful squeal from the engine at idle. When you rev it up there is no noise only when it sits idling. It had a timing belt fitted 3000 miles ago because i found the receipt but as i have just bought it i dont know how long the noise has been there for. There is no mention of the variator being done on the receipt but from what i beleive that is more of a rattle than a squeal. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks in advance. Baz
