Alfa Romeo 164

G'day - now you know i'm an Aussie

G'day, I'm a new old member, have a 164 in great condition but my wife uses it more than i do, i'm left to drive a Lancia Montecarlo, which has become my daily work horse, but good fun. Can someone give me some advice on the 164, there is a rattle coming from the front of the engine, it's there at low revs and seems to dissapear as i accelerate, it come and goes, never happens when the car is serviced but to me it seems to be comming from the cam tensioner area. Is it likely to fall apart one day leaving me with a cam belt laying on the road and the subsequent damage that does. If you can be of assistance i would be most appreciative. Regards James
