Hi craigo2006,

Congratulation with new Alfa.

I think your problem might be defect variator, but it can also be the hydraulic pushers. Replace the variator, cam belt and tensionor, and make sure to use a good oil like Casterol or Agip.

It's no need to change the belt and tensioner if they are new, only the variator. A defect variator is known to make a "diesel sound".

On my two Fiat Barchetta's I replaced 3 variators (same part) in two years. They made by Hitachi by the way, so don't say japanese cars/parts is better

Edit: I did not answer all your questions. Try to change the variator and oil first, it's most likely the problem.
