166 V6 Burning smell, smoke!!
Hi Gerard here in Auckland NZ.
I have a problem with my 166 V6. I have had an intersting noise intermittently over the last few weeks, sounds like a pulley creech and the occaisonal clunk. That comes and goes. But in the last day or so after a run of 30 minutes in slow traffic I have been getting a burning smell and this morning smoke coming from the centre of a brassy looking pulley, front at the front of the engine. It looks to be an airconditioning pump or similar. Any ideas, or advice appreciated.
My other car is a 65 Giulia Sprint GT, luckily that's running fine at the moment, with a brand new grille and associated panels after a 4WD Nissan decided to back into it and then pull away again taking the whole nose with it!! The nice insurance man even approved some rust repairs as part of their payout!
