still stuck with alfa! latest update is the previous owner has given me a copy of garage repair done on 18th feb09, cylinder head,head set, t,belt(cost 740!) clutch and slave cyl nov 08, coil pack april. Could the piston rings have been missed as damaged, not that i can prove it.
My garage said the plugs were oily, and ems light on, plus the smoke, and when we took it in it was losing power. Is a new engine the only remedy, prob is the garage im sitting in is local, i dont want to have to drive it far, but hes not an alfa person, doesnt have computer to check engine with, is it ok for any mechanic to change engine over in an alfa?
obviously the prev owner doesnt want to know, even though i only drove one day. Is a recon engine the best option, or would i be better to sell as is?
