Alfa 156 2.5V6

Thumbs Up Alfa 156 V6 Sportronic saved!

They reckon your not a true car lover until you've owned an Alfa...

Well i've bought my first Alfa, a 2000 156 2.5 V6 Sportronic in Amazon Green metallic with cream leather. Wasn't really looking for a car, but the guy who owned her said she'd started overheating, and was thinking of scrapping her. Couldn't let that happen could I?! So I bought her on the cheap as a bit of a project.

Turned out to be a failed head gasket, a beast of a job for a DIY mechanic like myself, but after buying the tools and parts, downloading the eLearn manual (why don't they make a Haynes?!), scouring the forums for tips and advice, and much swearing and skinning of knuckles, she's now running beautifully.

She's still sitting on the drive because of a failed MOT due to a blowing exhaust front section, an easy buy for the manual but for the Sportronic seems to be more rare than hen's teeth... Can't believe that after after such a mammoth job i've been scuppered by something as simple as an exhaust!

No way am I gonna be beaten though, after saving her from the scrap yard I ain't about to give up... Any help or advice anyone has would be much appreciated!
