Hello and can anyone help - GTV V6 whine

Firstly hello to everyone, im now the proud owner of a Alfa GTV V6 ! Had the car around a month now and really love it, great sound.

it seems a bit lax to only start posting messages when you think youve got a problem so apologies in advance. I took the car away to SKYE for the bank holiday, great drive, got there and back with ease....

However i have noticed a light whine or whistle when accelerating particularly in 3rd and 4rth gear, it gets higher in pitch the further up the revs you go / faster you go. Im pretty sure this was'nt happening before or was certainly not as noticeable if it was. There doesn't seem to be any performance affect on the car at all other than the noise which only happen when you touch the pedal and are moving. Car has done 90k with the cambelt changed by previous owner at 65k.

If anyone has any ideas that would be great - i have been using Mclennans garage in edinburgh who are really good, alfa specialists, but it is a bit of a trek for me and hassle taking day off work to hang about IKEA and Sainsbury's cafe. i wonder if this is something my local bosch garsge in stirling could identify easily....

anyway thanks in advance

Mike Rea

Hello Mike and welcome to AO :wave:

I'm guessing that you have a 916 GTV, not the older Alfetta type If so check out the 916 section of the forum
