VVT Problems - help!!
As a newbie, I came to this forum looking for help. The whole site seems really good though!
I'm sure this must be a common one (not yet read the FAQs - apologies if it's in there)....
My 156 (2003) has just dropped in fuel economy dramatically. From an average of 35mpg+ last week to less than 20mpg today.
Alfa dealer in Knowle charged me £50 to tell me there's nothing wrong with it.
When it starts there it sounds like a deisel for a few seconds, and this seems to be getting worse.
Now: the oil was very low (and had been for a couple of weeks), but it's now topped up again.
Q - Will be troubles just go away now I've topped up the oil, or have I damages the VVT bits??
Thanks for reading, any help at all would be appreciated :-)
